Hidden from sight with no immediate neighbours, a stay at Bay Tree House feels a bit like escaping the world. With a timeless combination of natural wood and large windows, the light, calm and welcoming open plan living-room seamlessly combines comfortable areas to relax together and to eat together, with the sleeping and bathing quarters all on the same level. This thoughtful design with vaulted ceilings throughout, including above the bedrooms, cleverly adds to the overall feeling of space and openness in this rural retreat. Located next to the Owner’s property, but completely independent and private, this modern and comfortable house enjoys views over the gardens, yours exclusively in which to relax and unwind amongst the rustling bamboo and sub-tropical planting. Whether you are seeking a laid back relaxing holiday to do little more than read a good book or prefer an action packed activity stay with biking, surfing and walking the South West Coast Path, you will look forward to returning to your secret garden retreat at the end of each day.
Once a bustling mining and farming area, five miles from Penzance, the most famous fact about St Hilary today is the 13th Century church tower which at almost 79 feet can be seen by mariners from the sea! Outside of the parish and venturing a little further you will find sandy beaches at nearby Praa Sands and Perranuthnoe; the medieval town of Marazion overlooking St Michael’s Mount is ten minutes by car. Perfectly placed for exploring this beautiful part of Cornwall, the bustling seaside town of St Ives and the golden dunes at Gwithian are also within easy reach, or head south down to the Lizard peninsula, Porthleven, Falmouth and Truro; nowhere is much more than half an hour away.
