This cottage is in the world heritage site of the Luxulyan Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty with its unique network of waterside walks.

This beautiful cottage is accessed via a small country lane and located within seven acres of meadows and traditional broadleaf woodland with abundant wildlife, and is just a mile from the Eden Project. In addition, there is the Saints Way Pilgrim Trail and close by are The Lost Gardens of Heligan, numerous National Trust properties and gardens, Tate St Ives and much more. A five minute drive leads you to Cornwall's south coast which offers glorious beaches, secluded coves and picturesque fishing villages including Looe, Polperro and Mevagissey. For something different, why not take a stroll or the cycle route to the village of Luxulyan and take the local train to Newquay or try your hand at fishing only two miles away.

This cosy cottage offers an upside-down style accommodation, so on entering via a flight of external steps, you will find yourself in the inviting and comfy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner area. You can relax in the welcoming lounge with its TV/DVD and there is also Wi-Fi available. You can find everything you may need in the kitchen area including oven, gas hob, small fridge/freezer, and microwave. Taking the spiral staircase downstairs, you will find the snug and cosy double bedroom which is equipped with TV/DVD and a compact en-suite shower room with WC.

From the living space, a door leads out onto the first-floor veranda with seating. The external staircase leads down to the enclosed garden, from which, there are plenty of woodland walks to be enjoyed. There is parking available for one car, and secure storage for bikes is available underneath the property. Or, bring sparkle to your Winter. Get your skates on for another Winter of fun at the Eden Project. The ice rink will be open until the 23rd February 2020, enjoy seasonal activities, festive lights and explore the rainforest at twilight, just one mile from the property.

Quirky little cottage, next door to another (not shown in pics), situated on owners 7 acres which extends up slopes of valley. On which are several camping/glamping lodges & camping areas with various woodland trails & onsight activities. Well situated for visiting many attractions & only few hundred metres from Luxullyan viaduct. Cottage on a veryRead more narrow lane, so care needed, especially if walking at night (30 mins to pub). An nice, quiet & quirky bolt-hole. Hide

Fantastic location, peace and quiet in this topsy turvy cottage that works really well. An outstanding base for local walking and for exploring more of Cornwall. Can not rate this cottage highly enough. It is just wonderful!

It is adequate for the stay, not for those with mobility problems, very helpful owners willing to give info. Great location for wildlife and bird spotters. Lots of food locations in the area.
