Cobwebs (2193)

4.6 miles NW of Falmouth | Sleeps 4 + cot | Price Band F (£363 - £828)

Cobwebs is unexpectedly light and spacious inside – the unassuming exterior of this apparently modest little mid-terrace stone cottage is delightfully deceptive! Standing behind its tiny front garden, with honeysuckle around the door, this cosy home-from-home is just a short stroll from Ponsanooth’s village shop and pub, and only a ten minute drive from the bustling maritime town of Falmouth. The front door opens directly into the sitting-room, where big squashy sofas face the welcoming open-grate gas fire. Beyond is the large kitchen/dining-room, where steep open-tread wooden stairs lead up to two generous bedrooms and the bathroom. Steps lead out to a long enclosed private garden, with further steps up onto the lawn – a delightful sun-trap in sunny weather.

The Shaker-style kitchen units are fitted with solid oak worktops and, perfect for sociable dining, the table is set in front of the cosy multi-burner; there is even a piano for musical guests to enjoy. A treat for younger visitors is the village playground, a few yards away just across the road. The cottage is not only in a great location to discover the north and south coasts of Cornwall, but if you don't want to travel far you not only have a friendly pub and village shop up the road but if you walk a short distance up the lane, you will discover the hidden stories of Kennall Vale Nature Reserve and its 'explosive history' where today the sounds you're most likely to hear are those of rushing water, rustling leaves and the songs of woodland birds. This very special place is definitely worth a visit at any time of year and on those wetter weather days, don't forget your wellies or walking boots!
