If you want to fly away from the everyday and immerse yourself in the very best that mother nature has to offer, then escape to this oh so special hideaway in the most magical of settings. Tucked away at the end of a country lane, this gorgeous bolthole is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and from the minute you arrive you'll understand why.

The surrounding countryside is stunning and the views mesmerising, and your own private garden is nothing short of paradise. You are sure to while away many an hour enjoying all the beauty that surrounds whether snuggled up in the comfy king-size bed, toasting marshmallows around the fire-pit or snoozing in the hammock. And your soundtrack for the day will be the birdsong - there's a reason it's called the Bird Box you know. From the beautiful dawn chorus in the morning to the enchanting hooting of the owls who provide the encore at the end of the day, these are the best form of tweets; they soothe the soul and lift the spirits - are you feeling relaxed yet?

For an extra treat there's an outside bath made for two - how romantic is that. Nestled next to a beautiful kiwi tree, the best time to enjoy a long soak is in the evening under the starry sky, it's an unforgettable sight.

Cool and laid-back interiors perfectly complement the setting. Wake up and fling open the cabin doors to soak up the serenity of your surroundings as you enjoy your morning coffee. Utter bliss! The kitchen has everything you might need for creating yummy holiday dishes, with a very sweet seating area for holiday breakfasts before a day of adventures. If the weather turns a little chilly, there is the cutest wood-burner ever to keep you warm and toasty - making it a lovely getaway any time of the year. There's no TV or WiFi here - why would you want it - so you are in for a digital detox and if you need help getting off to sleep it will be counting stars here, lying in bed looking out of the skygazing window above - dreamy….!

Getting down to basics, in the neighbouring cabin you have a super shower to set you up for the day and that all -mportant eco-friendly compost toilet.

If you feel the need to fly the nest for the day, there's lots to discover nearby. You'll find wonderful walks right from your doorstep; across open moorlands, through wonderful woodland and along riverside valleys. For something extra special, head to Golitha Falls. You'll feel like you've fallen out of the pages of a fairytale here, as the river winds through the ancient woodland, cascading over the granite boulders along the way. And after you've worked up an appetite, treat yourself to one of the delights served up at the very popular Inkies Smokehouse.

The charming village of St Neot is only a couple of miles away with its impressive church, village shop and friendly village pub serving wholesome food, the perfect excuse not to have to cook whilst you are on holiday.

If you are feeling energetic discover the network of cycling trails at Cardinham Woods and Lanhydrock or perhaps the renowned Camel Trail trail be your route of choice. Starting at Wenford Bridge, you can cycle all the way to Padstow on the north coast stopping off along the way try some award-winning wine at the Camel Valley Vineyard or perhaps a light bite in the vibrant town of Wadebridge.

No holiday to Cornwall would be complete without a trip to the coast and with both north and south coasts within easy access, where to begin? On the south, take to shipwreck diving and shark fishing in Looe or for smaller catches try your hand at crab fishing off the Banjo Pier. Relax on the beaches at Whitsand Bay or watch them messing about on the water in trendy Fowey. At fashionable Polzeath on the north coast you can ride the waves, indulge in food served up by celebrity chefs in Port Isaac or discover Arthurian legend at Tintagel.

So calling all love birds or anyone flying solo what are you waiting for? Come and enjoy an unforgettable stay at The Bird Box but don't hang around or it might be full - you know what they say, it's the early bird that catches the worm!
