Customers’ Choice Award 2017 & 2018
Nestling in the stunning Cornish countryside, this pretty holiday home is ideal for touring this delightful area.

This pretty little cottage sits in well tended gardens, deep in the Cornish countryside and provides an ideal base while visiting many areas of Cornwall. Although nearer the tranquil south coast, the dramatic north coast, with its excellent surfing beaches, is easily reached. The Little House is just yards from the ‘Mineral Tramways Trail’, one of Cornwall’s many cycle networks that links the north coast at Portreath to the South coast near Falmouth. It is popular with walkers, cyclists, horse riders and sightseers as it passes through a rich mining heritage area, dotted with old mine archaeology. A cycle hire centre, café and shop are approximately 500 yards from the front door, right on the trail itself. The world famous Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Lizard Peninsula, which is the location of Lizard Point and the most southerly point of the country, are all easily accessible from the property. The ancient seafaring town of Falmouth is approx 6 miles away, and provides an excellent centre for many activities such as sailing, windsurfing, pleasure trips and diving. Other amenities available locally are fine sandy beaches, shopping, cinema, restaurants and Pendennis Castle, perched high on Pendennis Point. Falmouth is also home to the National Maritime Museum, two yacht marinas and numerous National Trust gardens. A ferry to the Roseland Peninsula and a sightseeing trip along the River Fal to Truro are also available from one of the town quays. Truro is the capital city of Cornwall and less than 5 miles away, with excellent shopping in the cobbled streets, fine dining in its many restaurants, bistros and cafés, a theatre and museum. Beach 6 miles. Shop, cinema, pub and restaurant 1¼ miles.

    unfortunately our trip was delayed by a day because of the snow but everything was perfect when we finally arrived. The owners were very welcoming and helpful, the cottage very comfortable in a lovely tranquil setting.

    Professionally presented; design and layout could not be bettered. For those who it may matter, the mobile signal begins about a mile away and the WiFi is weak. Most will not find those elements of concern given the splendid accommodation and strategic situation in the county.

    A lovely Little House to spend a few days .... warm , comfortable with all the bits and pieces you need to make your stay a home from home . We would recommend this property without hesitation and will most likely stay again in the future.

    Really lovely cottage. Very comfortable everything you could possibly want. So many extra's. Such a lovely location next to the owners but not at all imposing. Would certainly recommend.

    Our first self catering adventure and we were over the moon with our choice. The property is homely and extremely clean and very well equipped. We were really comfortable for our weeks stay. We had breakfast in the conservatory every morning and spent our evenings in the conservatory too, watching the wildlife around us. We even had a visit from Harry the host's beautiful cat who added the cherry on top of a wonderful stay. We will be back.......soon we hope !

    Cottage in a beautiful garden. Very peaceful and lots of birdsong. Lovely conservatory for breakfast and chillier evenings.
