About Mowhay

For a traditional Cornish farmhouse stay with added luxury and unrivalled sea views, head to Mowhay. It’s one of several holiday cottages, Gwendra Granary, Hayloft, Gwendra Wartha and Gwendra Dairy Cottage that make up the tiny farming hamlet of Gwendra on the Roseland Peninsula.

Inside, low beamed ceilings and wood flooring give the three-bedroom cottage a refined rustic feel. Step outside to its shared garden, where you’ll be on the fringes of south Cornwall’s coastline, overlooking the sea. 

You’ll be a short walk from the sandy beaches of Carne and Pendower. From here you’ll be able to loop on to the South West Coat Path for longer walks along the Roseland Peninsula. Head east to the pretty village of Veryan, with its thatched round houses, pubs and shops. Or hike west along the coast to Portscatho and St Mawes.

In Gwendra, you'll find neighbouring cottages Hayloft (sleeps four), Mowhay (sleeps six), Gwendra Dairy Cottage (sleeps two), Gwendra Wartha (sleeps three) and Gwendra Granary (sleeps four). They share open gardens, each with their own outdoor seating.
