This pretty property has been lovingly furnished to provide a comfortable couples retreat, and is ideally located on the spectacular Lizard Peninsula with a picturesque beach just a mile away.

The immediate area is steeped in maritime and smuggling history and is renowned for having one of the best climates in England. Head towards the coast and visit ever popular Mullion and beautiful Poldhu Cove, and a number of quaint fishing villages such as pretty Porthleven. From here you can also access the South West Coast Path meaning that you don’t need a car to explore the area. Other attractions and places of interest accessible from here and well worth a visit include The Minack Theatre, National Seal Sanctuary, Flambards Theme Park, Tate Gallery at St Ives, The Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the castles at Pendennis and Tintagel, and RNAS Culdrose.

The property is approached by a flight of eight granite steps and on entering you step straight into a beautiful light and airy open-plan lounge/diner. There is a Smart TV with Netflix and a Ruark audio system with DAB radio, dining table and seating for two. The galley kitchen is well-equipped and offers an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. As all of the accommodation is on the same floor, the next room is a bathroom, with shower over bath and WC, and then the last a cosy double bedroom.

Directly outside the property is a lovely shared courtyard with garden furniture and BBQ, and further to this you are welcome to explore the whole 23 acres with sheep, chickens and horses, picnic areas, climbing frame, slide and swing, walks and access to public footpaths. There is also ample private off-road parking on-site.

Squirrel's Drey is an excellent 1st floor flat for 2 on a small farm with chickens and horses. There are several other separate cottages on site. Very welcoming hosts. Outdoor heated swimming pool was great in May. Excellent location for discovering the Lizard in Cornwall and its beaches.
