Tollgate is a traditional stone cottage, built around 1800. It has thick stone walls with lovely deep recessed windows, with gothic arches in the living room and main bedroom.
The ceilings all have exposed beams, and there is a cosy cast iron woodburning stove, as well as gas central heating.
The quirky layout hints at the unique history of this Grade II listed building, with features including a wooden stable-style door to the rear of the property, and a gothic arched wooden front door.

The space
Guests have a living room with TV (Now TV Entertainment and Cinema channels) radiator and wood burner, small separate dining room, kitchen with gas cooker, washing machine and use of fridge freezer.

Upstairs is a good sized bathroom, with toilet, sink and bath (with electric shower over).

Main bedroom is very spacious, with gorgeous gothic windows, beamed ceiling, radiator, king sized bed, and ample hanging and drawer space.
Second bedroom can be set up as a roomy single or a cozy twin, and has a radiator, wardrobe with hanging space, and a chest of drawers.

Outside, guests have access to a patio area, which also has a washing line. This is an old cottage with dry stone walls around the patio which may have loose stones. Guests use this area with caution and at their own risk.

See notes for limitations of parking. One well behaved pet per booking may be permitted by prior arrangement (this will incur an additional £5 per night plus an extra £10 cleaning fee per booking).

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire property and patio area. Some storage may be locked for owners use.
Feel free to use tea, coffee, sugar, salt and other basic foodstuffs.
We will leave you logs and kindling for the fire.

Other things to note
We do accept children and babies by prior arrangement, but please note that this is a very old building and is not suitable for toddlers or younger children. Please contact us directly to discuss before booking if you are planning to bring children to the Tollgate Cottage.

You'll find a folder of useful information in the living room.

The cottage is easily accessible by road, but do be aware that it is situated on a bend, and entering and exiting the parking space should be done with caution.
The parking area is very narrow, and we only recommend that confident drivers with small cars park here, and reverse park only. You will need to drop any passengers before parking, and manoeuvre (with care) close to the left side to allow enough space for the driver to get out.

Alternative parking opposite the cottage may be available by prior arrangement.

One well-behaved pet per booking may be permitted by prior arrangement. An additional fee of £5 per night, plus £10 additional cleaning fee per booking will apply.

Please note that like many very old buildings, the property is being gradually sympathetically refurbished. .

Cornwall, England, United Kingdom

Tollgate is ideally situated on the boundary between town and countryside. St Austell shopping centre is a few minutes walk past the viaduct, with a good range of high street chains and independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, as well as a cinema.

Just a couple of minutes walk the other way brings you to the extensive clay trails, perfect for walking and safe cycling, connecting you to the Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Par Sands, Mevagissey and more.

Just a stroll away is the pretty stream at Menacuddle, with its quirky stone "Druids seat" and an old baptistry.

Beautiful Charlestown and Mevagissey are a short drive or bus ride away, and the popular town of Newquay is also nearby.

All the attractions of the whole Cornish peninsula, including Land's End are accessible within a couple of hours drive or less from Tollgate Cottage

I'm a mum, a researcher and a bit of a tech geek who likes nothing more than getting away from it all to re-energise. I love traveling the world, but also love the UK, especially Cornwall and Devon where I grew up. I'm happiest hiking, cycling or kayaking, or just relaxing with a good book. I like discovering places that are a bit off the beaten track, people with interesting histories and quirky characters.
