Originally an 1830s woodman's cottage, this unique detached house is set in 13 acres of private woodland - yet is just two miles from the stunning beaches and charming galleries and shops of St Ives.
The original carriageway winds through the grounds, opening up to a lawned area with a summer-house and a pond. Guests (and their four-legged friends) can enjoy the private walks in the woods.
The house is traditionally furnished and has everything you will need for a family holiday or a gathering with friends at any time of the year. The large kitchen/diner provides an ideal setting for a convivial meal and a catch up, and the conservatory/sun-room makes a lovely space in which to eat or play board games. There is a cosy living-room with a granite fireplace and wood-burner, which due to the house being in a private woodland has plenty of free logs.
The garden is gorgeous, a huge lawn as well as all the trees provide ample space for children to let off steam. The terrace which can be accessed from the kitchen is a sun-trap and with garden furniture and a barbecue you can enjoy al fresco eating, family games and total privacy.
The five bedrooms are all on the first floor, as is the second bathroom. The views over the grounds and countryside, from upstairs and down, are lovely and will make you forget the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
St Ives and Hayle with their miles of golden sands and surf beaches are just a short drive away, as are Marazion and Mousehole. If you can drag yourselves away there is the Watermill pub just 400 yards away from the end of the driveway and a little further along is the Old Forge Bistro, both serving up delicious treats.
