A charming single-storey cottage close to waterside village of Flushing and only just over 400 yards to the water down through the estate's private grounds.
Little Trefusis adjoins Trefusis House, an impressive example of Victorian Gothic architecture and home to the Trefusis family since the 12th Century. This grade II listed property oozes appeal, the light open plan living space has a warming Aga in the kitchen area which is the real heart of the property. The kitchen leads through to the dining and living areas with comfortable sofas, a fabulous dining-table and doors that open to a pretty enclosed south-facing garden.
The spacious main bedroom has a king-size bed, with the only sounds being the morning chorus to wake you from your deep slumber. The bunk-room is small and cosy, ideal for slightly older children, the family bathroom has a wonderful tub to soak your weary limbs in after a day on the beach or exploring the coast path.
The enclosed south-facing garden is a peaceful spot for lunch or evening drinks, looking out over the beautiful grounds and bordered on one side by the owner's conservatory (he scrupulously respects your privacy and keeps facing blinds down).
The owner is extremely welcoming to families and enthusiastic gardeners have the treat of exploring the gorgeous, landscaped grounds and a pathway through the private woodland which leads to a beach. The owner is very environmentally minded with solar panel installation in the orchard and biomass heating system, providing much of the Estate's needs, an example of his commitment towards future sustainability.
There is much to explore from your holiday home and you don't need to venture far, perhaps buy your produce from Soul Farm, located on the estate or head to The Food Barn, a fabulous farmers market, only a short walk selling local and environmental produce. Discover the local eateries such as The Royal Standard or The Waterside pub, or visit The Harbour House which was featured in The Michelin Guide within it's first year, all within less than a mile walking distance from Little Trefusis.
Everyone will relish the tranquility of this tucked away location, and outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the opportunities for walking in the area, as well as tuition for many forms of water sports. A picturesque walk around the headland links Flushing to Mylor Yacht Harbour, where dinghies, kayaks and canoes can be hired.
Lovely Cornish gardens at Glendurgan, Trebah and Trelissick are a delight to explore locally, with the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan a little further afield.
