Property code: THLAN

Charming single-storey cottage tucked away in the quaint village of Metherell, an ideal place to stay for anyone seeking a peaceful break

The Lantern is perfect for couples looking to get away from it all and enjoy a peaceful break in the Cornish countryside with picturesque walks right from the doorstep. Scoff scones laden with jam and clotted cream on the beautiful patio and relax to the sound of birdsong before a gentle ramble through the Tamar Valley. With weary legs, retreat back to the single-storey cottage, strike up the wood burner, sink into the plump sofa and unwind.

A palette of chalky hues combined with exposed beams and wooden panelling make this an elegant dwelling to escape to. The open-plan lounge and dining area are flooded with natural light through floor to ceiling windows - the perfect spot to unfurl with a good book. Why not make a toast to the holiday with a champagne breakfast in bed before setting out to explore?

From here you can explore both the north and south coasts, as well as the rugged Dartmoor National Park (8 miles).

We had a wonderful week at The Lantern. They location was ideal for us as we like the quiet of the countryside, yet were central to all the fab hamlets and coastal walks that Cornwall has to offer. The cottage was well set out, comfortable and the outdoor seating area was good to have. We travelled with our dog and had use of the hosts paddock whicRead moreh was a great addition. We would definitely return here if we plan another trip to Cornwall Hide

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
