    About this Holiday Cottage

    Just one mile from Roche is this charming cottage which has been superbly renovated from a nineteenth century china clay drying kiln. This grade two-listed property is one of five holiday homes in the building – all of which are peppered with subtle reminders of the construction's ‘china clay' heritage. With swings for visiting children, this idyllic setting is also set on the banks of a small stream, which runs by the back door. With so much to do in the local area, everyone is bound to find something they enjoy. Whether you're coming with family, or friends, Riverside makes a great base for people looking to explore Cornwall.

    Around and About

    The little village of Roche is only six miles from Bodmin and easily accessible by the A30, making it a fantastic holiday location for anyone looking to explore the wider area of Cornwall. With its selection of shops and pubs, this quaint settlement is primarily involved in agriculture leaving a picturesque patchwork of lush, gently undulating fields. Just a thirty minute drive away is the ruggedly beautiful north Cornish coast, with rocky caves, high cliffs and excellent surfing beaches. Newquay, with its new Fistral Beach surf centre, is also nearby, along with the fishing village of Padstow. With its narrow, winding streets, charming harbour and renowned restaurants, this small town certainly merits a visit. The spectacular Eden project is also close by, with biomes full of tropical plants.

    Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.
