With its delightfully private garden, this detached Grade II Listed thatched cottage lies down its own driveway on the edge of Nancegollan, a small village straddling the Helston to Camborne road. Inside is typical of an older cottage; low ceilings and doorways, some internal steps, and steep cottage stairs dividing at the top with a bedroom to either side.
Downstairs are a shower-room, a small but well-equipped galley-style kitchen, and an unexpectedly large dining-room complete with feature inglenook fireplace. Perfect for snuggling up on cooler days, the cosy little sitting-room next door has a wood-burner and just outside, the pretty garden and patio overlook open fields. There is one other property, the other side of the driveway behind a traditional granite wall, which is the only immediate neighbour.
The wonderful beaches and coastal footpaths of both north and south coasts are only a few miles away, making Higher Prospidnick Cottage an ideal central base for exploring Cornwall. And after a busy day out and about, a barbecue at the far end of the garden (well away from the thatch!) is a lovely way to enjoy a relaxed, peaceful evening outdoors.
