A secluded location in a private valley, an inspirational place to connect with the environment, to retreat, restore & revitalise. There are organic vegetable & fruit gardens where you can pick your own produce. There are free-range eggs & other homemade produce available eg sourdough bread, delicious jams & preserves - and vegetarian cuisine is also possible on request.
We are within walking distance from the sea & beautiful coastpath & beaches and near to The Lost Gardens of Heligan & Eden Project. The bus from St Austell Station brings you to the village at the end of our track where we can meet you and where there is an excellent local pub & village shop.
All our visitors find Cotna a unique and beautiful place to find what you need and connect with yourselves - the hidden location, the warm & friendly welcome, the peaceful environment and the inspirational projects make it "a hidden jewel of the Cornish countryside."

Sara was a teacher, trainer and examiner of EFL / ESOL in London before she came to Cornwall. She has travelled extensively in both Europe & Asia, particularly in South India. She has always loved contact with other cultures through work and travel, and has integrated this into life at Cotna through her overseas links and interest in international cuisine. She has also brought a reflective side to life at Cotna through yoga, meditation and encouraging the use of the studio for solitary retreats. She is a Homoeopath, has trained in Ayurveda and teaches Dyslexic students at Falmouth University. Life as a smallholder has been very new to her, but she has particularly taken to the sowing and growing of seeds, as well as developing the Artisan bread-making and cooking side of things – mainly because she loves eating!
Dave has spent his life in the West country and trained as a Plant Biochemist at Bath University. He has mainly worked in the field of conservation and ecology and has an encyclopaedic knowledge of plants! He has trained many young people over the years in countryside skills and woodland management, and more recently has been working with older volunteers on walking and cycling for health and fitness schemes. He is a homoeopath and an ardent plantsman, gardener and composter! He loves growing and eating food and being in the woods coppicing and harvesting fuel-wood. He says it’s all about moving healthily, eating well, keeping warm and dry and knowing how to get well when it goes wrong!
