Holiday Cottage in Durgan

There’s more than just a hint of Under Milk Wood to the delightful hamlet of Durgan, even if the sea is more “sailing yacht bobbing” than “fishing boat” these days.

Set a few yards up an ancient green lane that would once have been used by Roman and Phoenician traders, Chy an Dour holiday cottage has been created from two adjacent fishermen’s homes and dates from the early 19th century.

This listed building has been tastefully furnished, so while you’ll be in no doubt that you’re staying in a historic old property, you’ll also find modern 21st century comforts. It offers two spacious guest bedrooms, and there’s a wood burning stove that ensures a cosy feel at any time of year.

The lower entrance to Glendurgan Garden is just a few yards away, while ice creams are available from Durgan’s delightful little fish cellar on warm summer afternoons. Mawnan Smith itself is a short drive up the winding lane out of the hamlet. Those hoping to while away time on the beach will find Durgan’s own little cove straight in front of Chy an Dour, while the sheltered Grebe Beach a hundred or so yards away is the perfect haven for families and dogs.
