Leafy lanes lead to Lower Penvale, a tranquil setting just outside Truro where The Pavilion shows off its striking design. Harking back to its agricultural past with rough timber-clad walls and a curved zinc roof, the interior contrasts beautifully with contemporary design and 21st Century comfort. Habitat sofas, a sleek modern wood-burner and bi-fold doors opening onto a sheltered deck make the open plan living space a delight. The bedroom shares the same high ceiling and light oak flooring, with tall narrow windows looking out over lawns and trees.
The magnificent surfing beaches and dramatic clifftop footpaths of the north coast are just 15 minutes away, perfect for dog walking, beachcombing and exploring, or maybe just a leisurely drink in a beachside bar.
With its high ceiling, wall of glass and views across fields, the open plan living-room in The Pavilion is a wonderful light-filled space in which to relax and unwind. There is a fully equipped kitchen/dining-area for those who like to cook, but with Truro less than two miles away with an enviable selection of bars, restaurants and bistros to explore, eating out is always an option. There are two sofas – one for each of you to stretch out on – and a big TV with BT Vision channels, so fire up the wood-burner, open a bottle of wine and enjoy a lazy evening or two catching up on missed programmes or enjoying a favourite film. The bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed and a fully tiled en suite wet-room with powerful shower, perfect for easing aching limbs after days spent exploring beaches and footpaths, shops and galleries (with level access inside and out, The Pavilion is ideal for anyone with limited mobility).
The sheltered deck has countryside views and in the adjoining yard you may hear the occasional whinny from the owner's horse (there is a spare stable and lovely local bridleways if you'd like to bring your own horse on holiday). The welcoming owners live next door but respect your privacy once you've settled in.
Surfing beaches at Perranporth, St Agnes, Chapel Porth and Porthtowan are all within easy reach, making The Pavilion perfect for gung-ho outdoor adventurers but equally as perfect for those wishing to enjoy a relaxing break from everyday life just toasting their toes in front of the wood-burner.
