At the end of a private lane and set within a peaceful courtyard flanked by a small group of other converted barns, The Croft is a pretty little self-contained annexe to the Owner’s house on the outskirts of Godolphin Cross, home of the National Trust’s Godolphin House. Thoughtfully planned to maximise space its cosy, open plan living-room is furnished in mellow pine and decorated in restful colours. Steep, ladder-style stairs (unsuitable for the less mobile – or arthritic knees!) lead to the spacious en suite bedroom, where ‘zip and link’ beds offer versatile double or twin accommodation. After busy days out guests can relax in the sheltered garden just across the courtyard, a few yards away from the front door.
Equipped with Superfast wireless broadband, The Croft is ideally placed for exploring this wonderful part of Cornwall, including the spectacular coastal footpaths and also nearby Tregonning Hill, renowned for its 360 degree panoramic views to both coasts and if you want to bring bicycles or surfboards on holiday with you, the Owners are happy for you to use their secure storage shed. The pretty fishing harbour of Porthleven with its excellent restaurants and the mile long sandy beach at Praa Sands are just a few minutes' drive away. The beaches at Godrevy and Gwithian can all be reached in less than half an hour and Marazion's famous St Michael's Mount and picturesque St Ives on the north coast are both within easy reach by car.
