Carter's Croft combines vintage elegance with a luxurious rustic twist which cleverly complements this 18th Century semi-detached stone cottage. Lovingly restored into a holiday retreat perfect for a couple seeking a romantic escape or for a small family wanting something special, this super cottage offers character and tradition alongside the modern additions required by today's guests. The open plan living-room features the original beams and inglenook fireplace complete with wood-burner to keep you cosy. The gorgeous hand-built kitchen complete with Belfast sink and butcher's block is a cook's dream for rustling up a meal from the wonderful produce found locally. When it's time to climb the stairs to bed the two bedrooms can be found on either side of the bathroom, the double bedroom with an exposed stone wall and bespoke wooden headboard, the twin bedroom with reproduction antique metal beds, both adorned with crisp white linens, comfy pillows and quality mattresses to ensure a great night of shut eye for all and both with views over the garden below.

This luxury cottage make for an exceedingly unique holiday at any time of the year and if you have a special celebration or annual holiday planned with extended family or a group of friends, why not book the other two retreats on site together and enjoy the ultimate Cornish holiday experience. Each cottage has its own private outside space and guests have use of the communal boules court complete with a sociable seating-area to enjoy with friends new and old. A car-free zone around the cottages adds to the peace and tranquility and for that additional feeling of wellbeing, why not book yourself in for a class as the Owners' state of the art Pilates and fitness studio is just across the courtyard - whether you are a beginner or more advanced, there is something for everyone.

The courtyard has a seating area for a spot of al fresco dining and two reclining sun beds complete with comfy padded cushions, perfect for relaxing with a good book and a glass whilst waiting for the barbecue to heat up. When the air turns chilly wrap yourself up in a knitted throw and sit looking up at the night sky above and if the coals are still hot, stick a couple of marshmallows on a skewer and enjoy a star gazing sweet treat!
