If you fancy a slice of countryside living, then wind your way along the leafy lanes to the peace and tranquility that awaits you at Piran's Retreat - and what a 'treat' it is. There's endless miles of country rambles right on your doorstep, the sound of birdsong to entertain you during the day, mesmerising dark skies at night and, taking centre stage, the most breathtaking view across open countryside to the tors of Bodmin Moor in the distance. And that's just for starters. Add to this a unique and truly delightful holiday cabin that is nestled in the corner of a lush lawned area to take full advantage of the views, and surely this is a great excuse to give yourself a treat.
Whether enjoying a good holiday read, indulging in a Cornish cream tea or watching the sun set at the end of a perfect day in south east Cornwall with those very special views as the backdrop, the large covered decking-area offers what has to be the best seat in the house. Step inside the large open plan living-room, with its cosy sitting-area, modern kitchen and relaxed breakfast-bar, and those panoramic views can still be enjoyed thanks to the large floor to ceiling windows.
The cabin bedroom is glamorous beyond belief. A sumptuous brass bedstead adorned with luxury linens and goose down duvet (hypoallergenic available on request) will ensure the most comfortable of nights and for that added bit of luxury, fluffy robes and slippers are also provided. The beach hut styled en suite shower-room with its white washed paneling, driftwood mirror, mosaic tiles and stained glass windows is a reminder that you are never far from the coast where ever you are in Cornwall.
And perhaps if we can tempt you to go out and explore the delights this special part of Cornwall has to offer, the coast might be your first point of call.
The coastal footpath is a must and along the way stop off at the charming fishing villages of Kingsand, Cawsand and Polperro.
At the traditional fishing town of Looe you can try your hand at shark fishing or shipwreck diving or simply enjoy some traditional fish and chips sitting out on the Banjo Pier.
Just a five minute drive will take you to the dramatic landscape of Bodmin Moor, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering wide open spaces, mining heritage and charming moorland villages, many with their traditional village pubs - an ideal excuse to stop off and refuel along the way. If food is high on your agenda, don't forgot to add the nearby 'Springer Spaniel' bistro pub at Treburley to your list - you won't be disappointed.
Discover wooded valley and riverside walks in the beautiful Tamar Valley, also an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and only five minutes away by car, or why not hire a canoe or kayak and journey along the river. The historic house and gardens at Cotehele (National Trust) are quite splendid and a quick trip over the border into Devon will take you to the ancient stannary town of Tavistock and the gateway to majestic Dartmoor.
