This cosy apartment offers a comfortable base from which to explore the stunning south coast of Cornwall and just a short drive from the popular resort of Looe. Annexed to the owner's home, yet with a private entrance and separate patio area, your privacy is very much assured.

Walkers, explorers and outdoor adventurers will absolutely love Little Wainscott, a cosy apartment in the pretty Cornish village of Lanreath, perfectly located for exploration of the whole of Cornwall, particularly its stunning south coast. In this spacious and comfortable nook, you'll be surrounded by gorgeous greenery, footpaths that beg to be trodden, and some of the region's best beaches.

Annexed to the owner's home, yet with a private entrance and separate patio area, your privacy is very much assured. The cosy interior, homely kitchen and garden views from both the patio and lounge make it a wonderful romantic retreat for two. Enjoy your morning coffee in the conservatory or move outside to the patio to catch some rays.

The immediate surrounding area is a walker's paradise, with plenty of beautiful routes leading directly from the village. Enjoy the stunning countryside, and the spectacular South West Coast Path, approximately 5 miles from the village. Fishing, diving and boat trips are also readily available, so you can really make the most of your time on the coast. Within 10 miles are the quaint fishing villages of Looe and Polperro, which are a must when visiting the area, both offering a good selection of restaurants and pubs. At a similar distance is Lanhydrock, a magnificent late Victorian country house and gardens. Attractions slightly further afield but well worth a visit include the popular Eden Project, and the peaceful riverside town of Fowey, both within 20 miles.

This is a lovely apartment and in a great location. The owners were always happy to assist in any way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. It's hard to see how it could be improved upon and we would definitely recommend both the area and the annex.

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.
