Over 200 years old, this lovely stone cottage overlooking Stithians Reservoir is perfectly positioned for exploring Cornwall. Attached to but facing away from the Owner's home, the cottage has a small enclosed front courtyard, a lawn area a few yards away and several nearby fields ideal for exercising the dog. There is also a footpath right around the reservoir with hides for bird watchers, a watersports centre and a pub close by. Inside, the small kitchen, cosy sitting/dining-room and bathroom are downstairs, and up the steep cottage staircase, two bedrooms offer flexibility for two guests. Next to the cottage, the detached utility-room is ideal for storing wetsuits and walking boots; bike storage is also available.
Mount Wise Cottage is ideally located for easy access to both north and south coasts and the far west of the county – the Eden Project is only an hour away and within twenty minutes you can be soaking up the maritime history in Falmouth, walking through the historic town of Helston or visiting the beautiful Cathedral City of Truro. On your arrival you will be welcomed with fresh flowers and fruit, and have all the luxuries of The White Company and Laura Ashley bed linen and freshly laundered towels. Dogs are welcomed in the cottage and with fields on the doorstep for walks, it is a perfect place to bring your pet – with a welcome doggie bag for him too!
