Porth Krow is a fabulous eco-friendly retreat that is perched in the rolling countryside just outside the historic town of Penryn. There are amazing views on offer from this hideaway with Gorran Gorras creek, the Roseland Peninsula and Falmouth harbour all visible from your living space while the hut's gorgeous natural surroundings offer plenty of tranquil spots to unwind and relax in the Cornish sun.
Porth Krow is a true eco getaway, the hut itself has been sustainably built from natural materials while power is provided by on-site solar energy. There is also a range of beautifully handcrafted features made from reclaimed materials that beautifully complement the hut's modern luxuries to create a real sense of home.
As you enter, you are greeted by a gorgeous open plan living-area that is light and airy thanks to the wonderful large windows overlooking the creek. A snug dining-area sits at the end of the space and is superb for cosy evening meals after a day out exploring. This can also be turned into a bed upon request if you have children with you (please contact the office for more information). The inviting sofa provides the perfect spot to enjoy views out towards Falmouth with a warming cup of morning coffee watching the ebb and flow of the tide. To the left of the living space sits the compact kitchen-area which has everything you'll need to prepare delicious meals on your holiday.
Wander through the charming archway and you'll discover the incredibly cosy double bed which is surrounded by beautiful handmade decorations and looks out towards the river. After a good night's sleep, a beautifully finished shower-room provides the ideal spot to refresh yourself before a big day of adventures. With electric heating and fully insulated, Porth Krow is a fabulous choice for a year-round getaway.
Outside there is plenty of space to enjoy the fabulous Cornish sun; a large terrace hugs the hut so as the sun tracks round so can you. To the side sits a lovely patio-area complete with a fantastic barbecue that makes al fresco dining an absolute dream. Perhaps light the outside fire and enjoy toasting marshmallows whilst gazing up at the stars. Discover one of the many fabulous little hideaways that are perfect for losing yourself in your favourite book. There is even a small football goal to enjoy if you have little ones and all of these spots boast gorgeous views across the estuary that you will never get bored of.
The hut itself sits within the three-acre garden of the owner's home where they live with their friendly dog and three children.
At high tide, it is possible to paddle or kayak from the property with a kayak provided by the owners (please do check the tide times). There is also direct access to the coastal footpath which provides a stunning walk along the water's edge to the nearby village of Flushing, why not hop on the ferry from here to Falmouth for a car-free day out. The small town of Penryn is also within easy reach and is full of lovely independent shops and cafes.
On the outskirts of the town, you'll find Enys Gardens; stunning gardens that are perfect for a relaxing stroll through some stunning greenery. Head further down the road and you'll arrive at Falmouth, a vibrant town that is home to a great range of eateries as well as the wonderful Gyllyngvase beach. If you're a keen sailor, the small town of Mylor is a popular sailing hub from which you can hire boats and explore the gorgeous Carrick Roads. In this area, you will also find the Pandora Inn, a fabulous water's edge pub that has a brilliant floating pontoon which you can enjoy your dinner on.
