Some of our more commonly asked questions and their answers of course....
If you don't see the question and answer you require then why not drop us a line and we'd be happy to see if we can help you out.


Is a 'welcome pack' included in the price?
Absolutely. Upon arrival you can expect to find all the basics you would need, including bread, milk of your choice, some eggs from the chickens, a bottle of wine, some local soft drinks and a selection of locally sourced produce we can find at the time, so you can enjoy your first day in comfort without having to worry about going to the shops first thing.
Is smoking allowed?
Smoking inside the cottages is not permitted.
What general facilities are there within the cottages?
The cottages have been refurbished to a very high standard, and as such we have made every effort to include all the comforts you would expect at home. These include Wi-Fi, Freeview TV, diswasher, gas hob and electric oven, microwave oven, fridge/freezer, coffee maker, hair dryer as well as a comfortable bed and a great shower apparently!
What is there to do in the immediate area?
There are public footpaths and fields with livestock for you to enjoy on foot from the Rectory. The Well of St. Keyne is a short walk away as is the village church. One mile to the south of St Keyne you will find the village of Duloe, which has a pub and a village shop.

A short drive will take you to the coast, where there are plenty of coastal walks such as Looe to Polperro, along some beautiful coastline. When you arrive in Polperro, enjoy a well earned drink and lunch at a local pub.
Can we bring our dog?
Simply answer is "Yes, you can".  We can accomodate a small to medium size well behaved dog, possibly two, but please do get in touch first so we can see if The Old Rectory is suitable for your extended family.
We do have 2 dogs of our own, Poco and Shelby, both young cockapoos.
Where is the nearest pub?
The closest pub is in the village of Duloe which is approximately one mile south of St. Keyne. It is called The Plough, and serves good, locally sourced food.
Do you have any local information in the cottage?
We have compiled a book with as much local info as we could find that should help you, if you require it, with some things to do, places to visit as well as eat and drink. It also has all the important phone numbers for everything you may need in case of an emergency.
What visitor attractions are there nearby?
Local attractions include The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Antony House and Gardens, Mount Edgcumbe Country House and Gardens, and Carnglaze Caverns. You'll find a link to these and many more places of interest on our Links page.
