Sleeps 6 adults + baby cot

"utterly stunning views"

A reverse accomodation, 2 king size bedroom, 2 bathroom (1 en-suite) traditional granite Cornish cottage with a double sofa bed in the sitting room and a 120cm x 60cm baby cot. 

Central heating, instant hot water plus a woodburning stove. 

Location and Wildlife

The Cottage is set at the heart of the farm and is a haven of tranquity, where rush hour is defined as feeding time for the cows and the only road rage consists of two tractors vying to finish their work before the rain sets in.  There are Juliet balconies to the North and South elevations, and double doors to the East elevation, where the original granary steps lead down to the walled grass tennis court with BBQ and outdoor seating area. 

The fields to the North of the Cottage are planted to vegetables for 2019-2020 with cattle grazed predominately on our land to the South and West. There are two breeding barn owls on the farm this year, tawny owls, a perrigrine falcon, plus roe deer, badgers, foxes and rabbits. 

Guests please note that the cottage is at the end of a long farm lane, which is rather bumpy in places. 


The bedrooms boast traditional brass king size beds and are on the ground floor with French windows opening directly onto the Victorian farmyard.  One bedroom is ensuite with an Italian travertine tiled bathroom. The other bedroom is directly adjacent to the large shower room, which can also be used by additional guests.  

The additional sofa bed (measuring 175cm x 120cm) can be made up by co-joining the two matching leather sofas to create an amazingly comfortable bed with a goose down topper for added luxury.  

All beds and bathrooms are clearly and accurately profiled in the photo gallery and floor plan.
