The mid-point of an ancient pilgrim’s route to the monastery atop St Michael’s Mount in the days before this famous landmark was surrounded by the sea, beautifully refurbished Pilgrim’s Barn stands across the driveway behind the owner’s aptly-named home, Halfway House. The little village of Fraddam straddles the road from Hayle to Helston, just a few minutes’ drive from either coast. Perfect for exploring west Cornwall, this spacious detached cottage is finished to an exceptional standard, incorporating a restful contemporary colour scheme and stylish, comfortable furnishings. Most of the accommodation is on the ground floor, with just the generous double bedroom and its shower-room upstairs. Although this property does not accept children, a baby up to 12 months is welcome.
