Beautiful cottage in rural countryside location, nestled amongst a small hold not far from Lands End.

Far away from the crowds and off the beaten track, this alluring Grade II listed converted barn is one of two and is the retreat you've been waiting for. Set on an idyllic 37-acre smallholding a quatre-mile down a gravelled lane, experience the peace and quiet of the Cornish countryside; bar the sounds of your neighbours, the goats, hens, ducks and ponies. Dog owners will appreciate the enclosed garden perfect for exercising your four-legged friends; it's also the perfect place to enjoy your complimentary Cornish cream tea when you arrive!

Boasting exposed beams, pretty farmhouse-style doors, and comfy furniture, the interior of this one-level cottage has been designed with its surroundings in mind. The apex ceiling in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner gives a great feeling of space. Kitted out with everything you need to unwind, such as a wood burner, a bathtub for a well-earned soak and an enclosed garden with breathtaking views for al fresco suppers and sundowners.

Stay in Cornwall's ‘wild west', an unspoilt corner of the UK; walk the nearby South West Coast Path and be awestruck by the phenomenal clifftop views. Peppered with pubs, shops and restaurants, Sennen still manages to retain its traditional fishing village ambience, and it's only 4 miles west of Ivy Cottage. Just around the corner from Sennen Cove is Kynance Cove, famous for its azure waters and velvet heathland, a must-visit. For a truly unique experience, book tickets for a show at the Minack Theatre (5 miles), an open-air theatre built into a cliff which promises a show beyond the stage - remember to pack a blanket or cushion!

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
