Tucked away along a country lane in a truly beautiful part of Cornwall, this rural idyll is the perfect escape to get away from it all. Set amidst two acres of leafy woodland with a babbling brook, duck pond, grassy meadow and orchard, all waiting to be explored, this perfect little pad for two promises rest, relaxation and the chance to reconnect with nature. Step inside and the owners have taken great care in creating a calm and restful interior that perfectly complements its setting.
All on one level, Little Trefenten is a ground floor, self-contained annexe within the owners' gorgeous 16th Century home, quite private with its own front door. The owners are on hand to provide you with a warm welcome but then leave you to enjoy your holiday in peace. The open plan living-room is stylishly furnished with comfort and quality high on the agenda. Leading off from one side is the bedroom and to the other the bathroom where you are sure to indulge in a leisurely soak courtesy of the spa bath.
Enjoy dining al fresco from the garden table or take a pew on the garden bench to soak in the sounds of the countryside, whilst spotting the many varieties of bird and wildlife that chose to make this place their home.
Located on the outskirts of the charming village of Pillaton with its traditional village pub and historic church, on the edge of the River Lynher and close to the beautiful Tamar Valley this is a great base for exploring. Add to this the proximity to the Cornwall and Devon border and options for days out are endless.
The Lynher Valley and the Tamar Valley (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) offer miles of walks through wooded valleys and along river banks, or for adventures on the water there are various places to hire kayaks and canoes. Historians will delight at Cotehele (National Trust) with its spectacular gardens and fascinating Tudor Manor House and Pentillie Castle, a 2000 acre estate with breathtaking views across the river Tamar offering garden tours, a summer season of events and the most highly recommended afternoon tea (booking essential). If golf is your game, why not put your handicaps to the test at the championship course at St Mellion or the riverside course at China Fleet Country Club.
No visit to Cornwall is complete without a trip to the coast. At the traditional seaside town of Looe try your hand at shark fishing, shipwreck diving or simply enjoy some good old fish and chips sitting on the Banjo Pier. The long stretch of golden sands at Whitsand Bay beckons you to lounge in the sun or for something a little more exhilarating, there's surfing and coasteering..
Cross the water, heading into Devon to explore the wild and rugged landscape of Dartmoor, or if it's city life that floats your boat call into the maritime city of Plymouth to enjoy the delights of the historic Barbican and Plymouth Hoe and grab a bite to eat in one of the great eateries at the city's trendy Royal William Yard.
