Just a few minutes’ drive from Hayle’s long sandy beaches and only six miles from St Ives and its galleries, shops and restaurants, Count House Cottage also lies within easy reach of the south coast. Ideally located for exploring the area, this comfortable cottage adjoins the owners’ home and is blessed with a sunny, south-facing enclosed rear garden which is sheltered by a high stone wall to the front and overlooks the owners’ lawns. Once inside, the cosy sitting/dining-room leads (up two steps) to a little sun-room and the very well-equipped kitchen. The bathroom is also downstairs, and up the steep, narrow staircase is the spacious bedroom, which has lovely countryside views. This cottage is full of charm and character inside with low doorways and ceilings and a lovely old (ornamental) Cornish fireplace.
