It's not just swallows who love to nest amongst the wild terrain of the Lizard, together with our feathered friends you too will enjoy making this fantastic part of Cornwall your home-from-home. This delightful detached cottage, accessed down a private unmade lane, has the sitting-room upstairs, and is set apart from the Owners' farmhouse and surrounded by its own garden and rural countryside yet only a hop, skip and a jump away from Mullion village. With both a ground floor and first floor bedroom, each with a bath or shower-room, this is a super cottage for a small family or a few friends wanting to get closer to nature in Cornwall whilst making some truly wonderful holiday memories.
Although peacefully rural, once you fly the nest to explore your surroundings, you are very close to the bustling village of Mullion, local beaches, the Helford River and beyond. Losing yourself in the beautiful Cornish countryside is the perfect way to switch off from our busy lives and finding time to really appreciate the stunning scenery and to savour the peace and quiet. Also if wanting to improve your command of the English language, the friendly Owners run both language and literature tutorial courses on site so if this is something of interest we would be happy to put you in touch with them to find out more.
