What a wonderful home this is, a very special place where you are sure to make many happy holiday memories. With a sunny garden that will delight young and old alike, a shaded decking area and open terrace for a choice of places to eat out, a hot tub, of course, to wash away the stresses and strains of everyday life and the most fabulous of interiors, you've got to love them.
Nestled in the little hamlet of Treburley, this pretty whitewashed cottage also has the easiest of access to explore all the thrills and delights that not only Cornwall but also neighbouring Devon has to offer and there's even a fab foodie pub within walking distance. So why wait, gather up your loved ones, including your four-legged friend, as they are most welcome too, and give yourself a treat.
Despite its name, Little Park is anything but - surprisingly spacious with a recent extension that seamlessly blends with the original 300 year old cottage. The interiors are gorgeous, befitting of any interior magazine, yet so welcoming and homely you are sure to relax the minute you step over the threshold. The open plan living-room is a triumph, with its want for nothing kitchen to delight the budding chefs amongst you hosting meals around the dining-table and when your tummies are full, chill out on the large squashy sofas that take pride of place in front of the wood-burner and the whopping 60 inch TV.
There's a small snug off the dining end, with shelving stacked full of books and DVDs that will keep avid bookworms and film buffs amused all holiday and if you want a little peace away from the main party, there's even a drawing-room that also has a toasty wood-burner, well we don't want you to miss out. One of the bedrooms leads off from here, sleeping up to three guests it's really flexible and large enough to be home to the mother of all desks ideal for those who need to catch up on some work whilst you're away.
Upstairs the delights continue, even the landing and staircase haven't missed out on the style treatment. Leading one way is a pretty double bedroom with a little en suite shower-room and to the other the main bedroom, it's like no other - decadent, romantic and quite simply, stunning.
From days out in the countryside to thrilling coastal adventures - they are all waiting to be discovered from this very special home.
Dare to be dragged away from this idyllic base then this relatively unknown part of Cornwall will not disappoint. The Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers miles of walks through wooded valleys and along the banks of the river.
For adventures on the water there are various places to hire kayaks and canoes, and if you fancy a bit of tree-surfing head off to Tamar Trails. Historians will delight at Cotehele (National Trust), with its spectacular gardens and a 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)!
The dramatic landscape of Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor provide a complete change of scenery, with wide open spaces, rock formations that defy gravity, and charming moorland villages with local pubs offering a good old dose of Cornish hospitality.
For foodies the local pub in Treburley will not disappoint or after a quick snack at the nearby cafe at the local farm shop, Tre, Pol & Pen, stock up on some local provisions to create your culinary masterpieces at home.
The local market town of Launceston has a small selection of shops along with its ancient castle (English Heritage) and a couple of golf courses, so don't forget your clubs.
No trip to Cornwall is complete without a trip to the coast and with both within easy access which way to go? Head south and you'll find the charming fishing town of Looe and the long stretch of golden sands at Whitsand Bay, or north to the surfing beaches of Bude and Widemouth Bay.
