If you love the sound of birdsong and a wonderfully peaceful rural location, Pascoe’s Pippin is the perfect holiday home for you. Tucked down a little lane and surrounded by fields and woodland, the beaches, clifftop walks and waterside villages of the Cornish south coast are all nearby. Much thought has been given to the quality, furnishing and decor throughout, with the open plan ground floor having a bespoke hand-built kitchen, industrial-inspired dining furniture and comfortable seating set around a warming wood-burner. A door leads out to a private patio, perfect for morning coffee and evening drinks. The light-filled bedrooms have soaring apex ceilings, comfortable mattresses and en suite bathrooms with drench-head showers and big warming towel rails. Pascoe’s Pippin, formerly known as Pendragon, is a semi-detached barn conversion with lovely Hocking’s Green (3860) next door, making this the ideal spot for families and friends to holiday together. Each cottage has its own outdoor area and look out to the central courtyard, with the Owners’ lovely old farmhouse opposite (facing away from the cottages). There is a shared grassy picnic-area in the beautifully landscaped grounds which guests are welcome to use, bordered by trees and providing a wonderful wildlife haven for woodland animals and birdlife.
Pascoe’s Pippin offers Farrow & Ball paints, oak work surfaces, Dualit appliances, Jamie Oliver cutlery and 400 thread count Egyptian bed linens, all showing the superb quality of this lovely cottage. The warm grey hand-built kitchen contrasts beautifully with crisp white walls, while bespoke curtains and blinds add touches of chic colour. The cottages are named after Cornish cider apples and local farms sell scrumpy cider, along with apple juice, honey and farmhouse ice cream. The countryside location belies the fact that the cottages are less than a mile from the A38, perfect for exploring far and wide. There are beaches at Looe, Seaton and Downderry just a ten minute drive away, with coastal footpaths offering spectacular views. Try shark fishing or shipwreck diving from Looe, or wander among ancient smugglers’ haunts in picturesque Polperro. The pretty coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand have narrow streets lined with old fishermen’s cottages and neighbouring Mount Edgcumbe Park – with its beautiful Tudor house, formal gardens, forest walks and rural workshops – is a delight. A foot ferry sails from Cremyll across Plymouth Sound to Royal William Yard, an evocatively historic, newly regenerated area offering restaurants, outdoor theatre productions and open-air cinema, arts and crafts markets and many artists-in-residence.
