This two-storey outbuilding is the last one of three on an 18th-century farm, in an irresistibly Cornish garden setting.
Snuggle up by the wood-burner with books, games and toys, or barbecue in your private Mediterranean garden. In this converted farm-worker’s cottage, beautifully equipped and open-plan, reclaimed timbers and rustic stones mix with the best of new, and all feels cosy and fresh. You can stock up at the farm shop outside Perranuthnoe and return to your own courtyard garden.
Being the closest to the owners’ house and, importantly, the cats that live there, the cottage does not accept dogs. Therefore the beaches are yours to explore, starting with glorious Praa Sands. (Don’t forget the body boards – they’re on the house.) Then set off for seasidey Marazion and lunch at the Godolphin Arms, bang opposite St Michael’s Mount.
