Immerse yourself in rural bliss with a tranquil stay at The Old Stables, an immaculate countryside retreat. Nestled in the pretty Cornish village of Mawgan, there's lots of adventures to be had from your doorstep. Or you could simply sit back and unwind in your Cornish hideaway. We can't say we'd blame you…

Step inside to discover the spacious and light open plan living and dining areas; large squishy sofas are calling out for you to fall into them and the stylish dining-area is perfect for long suppers by candlelight and enjoying each other's company. The fabulous kitchen is beautifully equipped with of course a Nespresso machine - for your morning coffee - and classic Le Creuset cookware. Open the door out to the south-facing courtyard and large lawn - enjoy long lunches in the Cornish sunshine in this rural retreat.

Head upstairs to discover the three gorgeous bedrooms. The principal bedroom has a fabulous super-king bed with an en suite shower-room and charming views of the church. The sweet twin bedroom is perfect for children and adults alike, while the spacious king-size room is wonderfully spacious and beautifully furnished. There's also a family bathroom on this floor, with a lovely bath for a luxurious soak at the end of the day.

The utmost care has been taken in creating this gorgeous space with luxurious touches throughout; there is a utility space in the entrance hall with a farmhouse drying rack, which is handy for soggy socks after a day walking the coast path. There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor.

Outside, the courtyard and garden are lovely spots to enjoy the sunshine with a good book and your favourite tipple in hand. The Old Stable's friendly neighbours include the cows who live on site and two other holiday lets The Old Granary (4944) and Church View (4943) (which makes a great choice for an eco-friendly holiday as it has air source heat pumps and solar panels).

Set in a rural idyll on a working cattle farm in the village of Mawgan, this is a delightful place for your Cornwall holiday. The cows enjoy grazing on the farmland in the summer and are in the sheds behind the barns in the winter months, and you might hear a gentle lowing from time to time. Mawgan has a fabulous pub nearby, The Ship, which is a great spot for a delicious meal and drinks and don't forget Gear Farm pasties, which are a must, and also try Gwella Dairy ice-cream too - there's so much local produce to choose from. The village shop is just a short stroll away, and if you fancy heading out for a walk, the pretty banks of the Helford and Tremayne Quay are nearby.

If you're looking to explore more of Cornwall, you're certainly in a great location to do so! The popular village of Porthleven is nearby with a fantastic selection of coffee shops and eateries and beautiful Mullion Cove is well worth a visit during your stay. A little further afield, you will find the cheerful town of Falmouth with its wonderful restaurants, pretty golden sand beaches and laid-back atmosphere. There's plenty to see and do on your holiday in Cornwall, whether you're searching for a relaxing escape to the countryside or are planning a week jam-packed with activities.
