Just a few minutes' drive from the renowned surfing beaches of Porthtowan and Perranporth, Honeysuckle Cottage is a perfect base for exploring this dramatically beautiful part of Cornwall. Hidden down a quarter-mile long unmade farm track, this delightful detached cottage has its own large enclosed side garden and a sheltered front deck, both with lovely countryside views.
The owner's home is nearby and children will enjoy using the trampoline opposite the cottage, and guests of all ages will enjoy meeting the owner's chickens and eating the free-range eggs the owner kindly provides. Furnished in a fresh, contemporary style the accommodation is all on the ground floor (except for the upstairs twin bedroom), so ideal for less mobile guests.
Honeysuckle Cottage only accommodates four guests, but has the advantage of three bedrooms – although the first floor twin room is accessed by steep ladder-style stairs, so is regrettably unsuitable for the elderly or children under ten – and please beware the sloping ceilings!
Open plan living-room with kitchen and dining areas. TV, DVD player, CD player and wood-burner. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher
Shower-room with shower, WC and wash-basin
Bathroom with bath, fitted shower, WC and wash-basin
Bedroom 1 with king-size double bed (5')
Bedroom 2 with twin beds (3') and TV
Bedroom 3 with twin beds (3')
The three bedrooms provide flexibility although accommodating four guests only. Bedroom 3 is accessed by steep ladder-style stairs, so is regrettably unsuitable for the elderly or children under ten, and please beware of the sloping ceilings.
