Green Acres Cottages
Commanding spectacular views across the beautiful South Cornwall countryside from its elevated setting this small cluster of country cottages overlook picturesque Cornish villages. Garden produce is grown on site and there are plenty of quaint local villages offering a good selection of fine traditional pubs and restaurants.
An ideal base for exploring, Green Acres sits close to St Austell Bay and the secluded beaches at Polkerris and Par. The historic port of Fowey and the world-famous Eden Project are within easy reach.
We highly recommend the Eden Project in St Austell where you can see the biggest greenhouses in the world as well as take part in workshops and listen to story telling. For a fun and memorable day out then the Porfell Wildlife Park and Sanctuary is less than 9 miles from Green Acres Cottages. Here you can see some exotic animals and children can enjoy feeding the deer, ducks and chickens. A little further afield just 12 miles away is the Monkey Sanctuary at Looe where you can see the fantastic work undertaken to promote the survival of primates.
The cottage accommodation is of a very high standard and provides a relaxing base for your stay. The Green Acres Cottage VIP sleeps 4 or 6 and the Polkeris Cottage VIP sleeps 6. We love these VIP cottages as they come with private outdoor hot tubs - the ulitimate way to round off a busy day. All of the cottages come with a stylish widescreen TV/DVD with freeview as minimum. You can also stay connected with free wifi. The kitchens are top of the range and include microwave, fridge, freezer and even a dishwasher.
