The perfect choice for those looking to explore the magic of Cornwall or simply just savour a restful break. Idlers Rest is a converted stone barn within a courtyard of other holiday homes called White House Court and is a cute, rural getaway nestled in a peaceful hamlet in the Cornish countryside, with easy access to both unforgettable coastlines.

Ideal for a small family or those looking for a romantic retreat, Idlers Rest is an all on one level, beautifully renovated cottage. Step inside to discover the simply wonderful open plan living space, with a cosy sofa to sink into with a good book after a day of exploring. Cook up delicious meals using fresh, local produce in the lovely kitchen space and enjoy them around the dining-table whilst you plan tomorrow's adventures.

Discover the two pretty bedrooms; the first bedroom has a very comfortable double bed with crisp linens, cushions, and a cosy throw, and the second is a very sweet twin bedroom which the children are sure to love. The gorgeous shower-room has a walk-in shower, heated towel rail and the bonus of a handy washing machine/drier.

Outside, soak up the sunshine in the shared garden, or simply linger a little longer over a morning coffee in the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding countryside.

There's much to discover on your holiday at Idlers Rest. From your idyllic location, you can explore the golden sands of Perranporth and Crantock and the sparkling blue waters of St Agnes. Wander along the gorgeous coast path and soak up the magnificent coastline, just as beautiful in winter as it is in the summertime. And don't forget to explore the unspoilt beauty of the south coast and the Roseland peninsula not too far away, with hidden coves and creeks to discover. We recommend a visit to the glittering waters of St Mawes, perfect for paddleboarding, kayaking and enjoying a cream tea in the sunshine.
