Lowen Gwel, Cornish for Happy View, nestles in the heart of the rural village of Nanstallon and as the name suggests has delightful views of the Cornish countryside to Grogley woods in the distance! Geographically located smack bang in the centre of both coasts, yet only a short drive from some of the country's must see places, this is a fantastic base for exploring the surfing beaches on the north coast to the more gentler calmer waters on the south and everything else in between; in fact there's so much to do it's hard to know where to begin! Brightly decorated and immaculately presented throughout, Lowen Gwel's open plan living area has plenty of room for the whole family to spread out and relax, yet ensure that you enjoy time together. Leading off from the sitting-area, the delightful conservatory offers an alternative place to dine or the chance to spend some time on your own, and the south-facing garden which takes full advantage of the view is the perfect spot to chill out and unwind with a good book or a glass or two of the local award-winning wine. If you run out, don't worry, the vineyard is just down the road - how convenient is that!
For days out, you are within walking distance of one of the county's most popular attractions, the Camel Trail. So why not bring your bike and head off to Wadebridge, a delightful town with many independent shops, or venture further to Padstow, of Rick Stein's fame, with its trendy shops and galleries, pubs and eateries galore and a whole host of festivals and events throughout the year. The historic houses of Pencarrow and Lanhydrock are within easy reach and for garden enthusiasts, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Eden Project are a must! If beach days are on the agenda, the surfers favourite of Polzeath and the family favourite Daymer Bay will not disappoint, and for maritime heritage, head to Charlestown, a destination used in many films and TV programmes - most recently Poldark - who knows, if you time it right, you might catch them filming!
