About Mowhay

A three-bedroom cottage with heaps of charm and Cornish coast views in the hamlet of Gwendra.

For a traditional Cornish farmhouse stay with added luxury and unrivalled sea views, head to Mowhay. It’s one in a handful of dwellings that make up the tiny farming hamlet of Gwendra on the Roseland Peninsula. 

Inside, low beamed ceilings, an open fireplace 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.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
