Set in the heart of the idyllic creekside village of Lerryn with the most wonderful views from the garden across the river, this delightful cottage is the perfect retreat for family holidays or friends looking for an excuse to get together. Retaining much of its original character yet renovated to an excellent standard, Prynn's House is a very special place where wonderful holiday memories are sure to be created.
Let's start outside – the garden is fabulous! A wonderful oasis of calm and tranquility where you can sit back and observe the comings and goings of life on the river. Pretty flower borders lead you to the large lawned area and patio which provides the most wonderful setting for al fresco dining or simply whiling away the day. For those who want to practise their somersaults and seat drops there's a trampoline which has been sunk into the ground for added safety and the lovely owners also provide a whole variety of garden games to keep younger members amused, along with a full size table-tennis set for those with a competitive edge. The games-room/garage also provides ample safe storage for any bikes, kayaks and surfing gear you may bring with you.
Slate floors, granite lintels, an open fire and ornamental fireplaces add to the overall charm and character inside. The kitchen/dining-room will make mealtimes a sociable occasion and leading off is a traditional pantry/scullery providing a useful storage area for all your additional holiday kit. The comfy sitting-room overlooks the garden and invites you to enjoy lazy evenings in front of the open fire and for those who might want some quiet time there's also a little snug. Upstairs there are two pretty double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower-room, a twin room and a bunk bedroom, which will delight the younger members of the group, along with the family bathroom. Although there are beds for eight people, Prynn's House only accommodates a maximum of seven guests due to the size of the living accommodation.
Lerryn is a wonderful location for a magical holiday. The village itself is picture perfect with its creekside setting, wooded valleys walks, a traditional village pub (which happens to be right next door to Prynn's House – how convenient is that!) – a village shop and tea-room and its famous stepping stones crossing the river, which appear at low tide.
Head downstream to the fashionable sailing town of Fowey, which combines its nautical appeal with chic cafes, artisan shops, cool bars and traditional Cornish pubs. At nearby Lostwithiel you can discover treasures and delights in the many antiques and vintage shops or conquer the remains of the medieval castle. The local garden centre provides wonderful views of the castle and whilst you are there why not enjoy some treats in their ever-popular tea-room! If pedal power is your preferred mode of transport there's a network of trails at Cardinham Woods and also Lanhydrock Estate with its fine country house, parkland and gardens, and for more garden delights The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the world-renowned Eden Project are a must.
