Nestled deep in the gorgeous countryside of far west Cornwall, Hydrangea is a delightful holiday abode, perfectly situated just a short drive away from the charming fishing village of Porthleven and the ideal base to explore the stunning seascapes of the south coast.
Hydrangea is a beautifully crafted single-storey home, surrounded by gorgeous countryside with just the local dairy herd for company. Whilst totally private, your next door neighbours are Dungarth (4815), perfect for larger groups looking for a special celebration getaway.
From the moment you arrive at Hydrangea you will relax into your peaceful surroundings. All on one level, the living area is spacious and beautifully crafted with statement lighting and double height ceilings. The comfy sofas invite you to chill out in front of the Smart TV after a busy beach day and the wood-burner will warm your toes during cooler months. Perfectly placed, the farmhouse dining-table overlooks the sunny patio giving you the option to dine in or out depending on the weather. Tucked around the corner, the kitchen awaits, with all the equipment you will need to create a culinary delight. Guests can perch at the breakfast-bar to supervise, or perhaps just enjoy a quiet coffee. A separate utility-room is home to the washing machine and a tumble-drier and this room is a great place to store your holiday essentials.
Up four steps and the hallway leads to four well appointed bedrooms and the family bathroom. Bedroom one has a luxurious king-size bed and an en suite bathroom with bath and shower over. Bedroom two has a king-size bed and bedrooms three and four have 'zip and link' beds, giving you the flexibility to choose either super-king size doubles or twin beds. The family bathroom has a bath and a shower cubicle so you can choose either a long soak after a busy day or a refreshing shower.
Outside Hydrangea really comes into its own with oodles of space for both children and the family dogs to let off steam. Sit on the large sunny patio and enjoy listening to birdsong and the occasional moo of a cow, this really is country living at its best. However you plan to spend your blissful holiday days, returning to Hydrangea after a busy day exploring Cornwall will be a delight.
West Cornwall has so much to offer when it comes to your holiday. Visit Porthleven, a charming fishing village just a short drive away with a great selection of places to dine from fish and chips from paper on the harbour wall to fine dining and everything in-between. Beach lovers should head for Praa Sands where Atlantic rollers provide endless fun for surfers and body boarders, or perhaps Perranuthnoe where a mile of flat sand is exposed at low tide, perfect for bucket and space holidays. Travel to the Lizard peninsula and head for Kynance Cove, a photographer's dream or perhaps the Helford estuary with secret coves aplenty, perfect for paddle boarding. The maritime town of Falmouth is a great place to spend time, with an interesting museum and a deep natural harbour, the ideal place to watch the water world go by.
Further west, Penzance is an eclectic town with a good variety of shops and cafes. Visit Jubilee Pool, a beautiful art deco lido, perched overlooking the beach or walk along the Victorian promenade to Newlyn and discover galleries and cafes. Iconic St Michael's Mount should be on your "to do list", standing proudly out to sea in Mount's Bay and only accessible on foot along the causeway at low tide, a ferryboat will transport you when the tide is high. For the more adventurous, try a helicopter flight to the Isles of Scilly and explore these beautiful islands for a day to remember.
However you plan to spend your idyllic days, make happy memories at Hydrangea.
