Nestling on a south-facing slope close to the famous Polmassick Vineyard, The dwelling at Tucoyse, meaning 'side of the wood' was mentioned in the Doomsday Book (1086). Once part of a working farm, the Holiday Cottages form part of a courtyard development. Our two adjacent cottages "Janna's" and "Demelza's" each sleep four people (plus a cot). All rooms have views of the countryside.
Each cottage has one double and one twin bedroom, and one shower room. All of the bedrooms have views, over the courtyard to the countryside beyond. Bed linen and towels are provided at no extra charge. All bedrooms are equipped with clock radios.
The cottages are fully equipped with fridge/freezer, washer dryer, dishwasher, microwave oven. Night Storage heating and supplementary panel heaters are provided. All electricity, heating and linen is included. Janna's and Demelzas are a strictly no smoking establishment.
To the rear of the properties are small enclosed patios with seating, leading to individual gardens with additional patio areas, barbecues, lawns etc. The cottages each have two designated off road parking spaces.
During the past year we have been delighted to share with our guests sightings of baby rabbits in the courtyard, hedgehogs and toads on the patios, and squirrels in the shrubbery. Bats frequently visit us on summer evenings.
As well as our regular pheasants, house and tree sparrows, blackbirds, wagtails, green, gold and bullfinches, yellowhammers, robins, owls, red legged partridges, a sparrowhawk and swallows. We have had a family of bluetits behind a drainpipe, housemartins in various places, (most recently on a slate ledge outside a bedroom window) and two clutches of wrens in a hanging basket!
