Blythe and Driftwood Cottages, Malpas, Truro, Cornwall
A stunning pair of Grade II Listed 19th Century Creekside self catering cottages with panoramic creek views. Available for weekend breaks and holiday lets, ideal for couples and families alike, for a relaxing retreat or as a base for exploring all of Cornwall.
The self catering cottages are located in the village of Malpas, a peaceful cluster of homes enjoying superb views across the confluence of the rivers Truro and Tresillian. Approached through woodland along the water's edge from the city of Truro, Malpas enjoys the tranquillity of no-through traffic, yet is less than 2 miles from the extensive facilities of Truro.
Blythe Cottage is a cosy 3-bedroomed cottage sleeping up to 5 persons (1 double, 1 twin, 1 single). Ideal for couples or families alike, it is a wonderful base for exploring the best of Cornwall. Situated in an attractive raised terrace above the riverside road, the cottage is accessed by a flight of slate steps from the roadside. The raised position blocks out any view of the road from the cottage and the garden, which looks directly over the water.
The cottage is homely and well-presented, combining original features of a Grade II listed cottage such as a stunning inglenook fireplace and beamed ceiling with the modern facilities of a more contemporary kitchen and bathroom. Furnishings throughout the cottage are traditional in style, with many antique pieces and original artwork. The colour scheme is neutral with designer fabrics such as Malabar and Osborne & Little.
The small front garden has a terrace and a lawn area and is ideal for al-fresco dining and barbequing. Or just relaxing with a cup of coffee or glass of wine watching the ebb and flow of the tide.
In the winter the wood-burning stove heats up the entire cottage. In addition, there is a night storage heater in the sitting room with convector booster. Upstairs there are electric fan heaters if required.
Driftwood is a 1-bedroomed cottage sleeping up to 2 persons, an ideal retreat for couples. We completely refurbished the cottage to a very high standard, combining modern luxuries with traditional materials and features. It is situated alongside Blythe Cottage in an attractive raised terrace accessed by 8 slate steps from the road below, which sits on the edge of the riverbank.
The self catering cottage is interior designed with Mulberry fabrics throughout, complimented by Farrow and Ball wall colourings. Furnishings throughout the cottage are traditional in style, with many antique pieces.
The front garden has a terrace and lawn area and is ideal for al-fresco dining and barbequing. Or just relaxing with a cup of coffee or glass of wine watching the ebb and flow of the tide.

Cornwall is world-famous for its stunning coastline and the coastal path. From the rugged cliffs of the North to the sleepy creeks in the South, or the undulating countryside of the Roseland peninsula, the scenery is breathtaking. The cottages are ideally situated for daily excursions exploring the best parts of Cornwall.
For those who enjoy a shorter stroll, the cottages are set in a protected area of natural beauty, and there are some pretty creekside walks within 2 minutes walk from both sides of the village. Or take the Fal River Link from the marina in Malpas to Trelissick gardens for the woodland walk.
