Let yourself into this airy cottage and feel immediately at peace. You’re in a tiny hamlet with views of trees and the creek beyond (where you can paddle or wild swim). At the top of the lane you can walk straight into a woodland for walks and trails; you’re close to Falmouth and the stunning wilder north coast at Porthtowan.
Bedrooms are downstairs; the master opens onto a terrace and has a sparkling ensuite with a freestanding tub (plus underfloor heating) – glorious for a soak after a jam-packed day out. There’s a cot, highchair and stair gate so you’re kitted out if you come with little ones too. Head upstairs to the open-plan living space; cosy up in front of the fire, curl up in the window seat and watch the chef at work.
There are two local pubs to walk to – The Royal Oak and The Norway Inn – plus the well-loved Pandora Inn and its pontoon within 3 miles. This is central Cornwall so you can strike out in all directions.
