The Aviaries is a traditional character cottage tucked away on a quiet 'no through' country lane, close to the heart of the small, peaceful, rural village of St Teath and offers a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. There is plenty to do and see nearby - If it's a day at the beach building sand castles and surfing you're after, the beautiful beach of Trebarwith Strand is about 3 miles away and Polzeath a 20 minute away and Daymer Bay is just a little further around the coast.  Small coastal villages such as Port Isaac, Port Quin, Port Gaverne and Boscastle are waiting to be explored or you can immerse yourself in the legend of King Arthur at Tintagel.  Away from the coast, countryside walks can be enjoyed from the village and the wide and wild expanses of Bodmin Moor are a short drive away - dotted around the edge of the moor you will find several villages, most of them with pubs offering a warm welcome and good food.  Exploring further afield, the Eden project is about 40 minutes' drive and there are several historic houses within easy reach. After a busy day, relax in the rear terraced and secluded outdoor space before heading just down the road to the local pub for food and drink or, in the cooler months, why not light the fire and enjoy a cosy night in?  Apart from the pub, St Teath also boasts butchers, a post office and a village shop, so all in all it's a great base for your holiday.

Mr Robert D,

The Aviaries was a lovely cottage. It is attractive and well equipped in a friendly village that is centrally places to see the best of Cornwall. The local pub provided a welcome and good food. We’d come back anytime.

Mrs Christine P,

For usit was the perfect cottage in the perfect location. It was easy to find using the directions given and parking was easy. The cottage was probably the cleanest we have ever stayed in and had everything you need. St Teath is a wonderful village with a great pub that serves excellent food and a very friendly environment. As we went out of season, it took 7 minutes to get to Wadebridge and 14 to Padstow. I will be re visiting this one!

Andrew P,

Our first stay at this delightful cottage, so cosy, comfy, beautifully presented and well equipped too. A friendly village and a great location from which to explore the stunning coastline and countryside. We are so pleased we chose The Aviaries and would love to return. Thank you Cornish Horizons for arranging our stay.

Previous Customer,


Surrounded by rolling countryside, St Teath is a picturesque village tucked away down quiet country lanes, yet within easy reach of many of the better-known towns and villages of North Cornwall, including Rock, Polzeath, Port Gaverne and Port Isaac. Trebarwith Strand is less than 4 miles and it's only a 20 minute drive to Polzeath. The village has a lovely pub, the White Hart Inn, and a Post Office and village stores providing all your basic needs. Nearby, there is also Bowood Park Hotel and Golf Course, where you can follow up a round of golf with a meal in their restaurant. If you think you recognise Port Isaac, it may be because you know it better as Portwenn, the home of TV's Doc Martin; much of the filming for the series takes place here and in the surrounding area. The village has access to many wonderful walking routes, providing plenty of opportunities to explore the varied landscape of the local area. There is lots of wildlife to be found in many areas of Cornwall; birdlife is prolific, and you may also see larger mammals such as otters or badgers if you're very lucky! There are also plenty of wild flowers crowding the verges and hedgerows, creating an idyllic scene on your countryside rambles, while bees and butterflies abound, making for a truly relaxing and tranquil break.
