Property code: BODTR

Characterful property, occupying a wing of a traditional Cornish longhouse, within easy reach of beaches and harbour towns.

This property is in a quiet, rural location and yet is just three miles from the city of Truro, with its shops, cinema, and restaurants as well as the nearby National Trust-managed Trelissick House and Gardens, with its 300 acres of parkland. The surrounding region has much to see, with both coasts being easily accessible along with their wide range of beaches, including the vast Perranporth to the north and the tranquil Gorran Haven to the south.

Taking the tree-lined drive to this cottage, guests will immediately feel that this is somewhere really special for a couples’ break. The property itself offers a warm welcome, as soon as you enter the cosy and comfortable ground-floor open plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge area here has exposed beams, leather seating and a TV and DVD. At the far end of the room sits the dining table, whilst the kitchen area is located at the opposite end and is equipped with an electric oven, hob, and microwave. There is a separate utility which houses the fridge/freezer and washing machine, as well as a separate WC. Stairs from the lounge area lead to the first-floor bedroom, a light and restful king-size with a tastefully decorated en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower, and WC.

Outside, the property benefits from an enclosed garden with a summerhouse and outdoor seating, a wonderful place to enjoy the peace and quiet and perhaps an alfresco meal. There is off-road parking.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This cottage is beautiful, exactly what we hoped for. The bedroom and bathroom is of a very good size with an extremely comfortable bed! We took our dog with us and we were very happy to find we had a secure garden area so he could have a run around. Would happily book to stay here again!
