Set in a tranquil location alongside a quiet lane and only a short drive from the pretty village of Gweek, this detached stone cottage is surrounded by countryside and is an ideal base for exploring this beautiful and unspoilt area of Cornwall.
With the owners' farmhouse nestled behind and out of view, this spacious barn conversion promises a warm welcome. Two steps from the bedrooms, the comfortable open plan living-room has vaulted beams, tiled floors and comfy sofas to sit around the warming wood-burner, whilst outside, guests will enjoy sitting on the patio or in the garden looking across the countryside surrounding the cottage.
For the more active guests bringing bicycles, wet suits or surf boards, the owners have provided handy storage and there is more than enough parking space, even if you wanted to bring the boat trailer!
However active or inactive you like to be, this delightful property is perfectly located to give you easy access to the area’s wonderful beaches and craggy coves, great walks around beautiful gardens and Cornwall’s South West Coast Path. When civilisation beckons, the maritime town of Falmouth and the Cathedral City of Truro are but a short drive away and, closer to home, the village shop and pub in Gweek are a five minute drive away. Cowhouse Cottage is one of those special holiday cottages where great holiday memories are made.
