Set on a magnificent 23 acre country estate, this delightful cottage serves as an ideal romantic retreat from which to enjoy the spectacular Lizard Peninsula.

This bright and airy cottage is one of five purpose-converted holiday homes in a complex on the beautiful Lizard Peninsula. Near the southernmost tip of the mainland UK, the region has arguably one of the best climates in the country and is rich with smuggling and maritime history. Complete with a shared heated pool, sunbathing area and 23 acres of farmland (including a working smallholding, park and picnic area) the estate is the ultimate base for an adventure in southern Cornwall.

The cottage interior has been stylishly decorated with white walls and fresh colours throughout. With an en-suite bathroom, breakfast bar and vaulted ceilings, space is used beautifully. The result is a light and comfortable home-from-home, whether you're popping in for a post-swim shower before heading out for dinner, or relaxing on the leather sofa planning your day over a morning coffee.

Mullion, the largest village on the Lizard, is just 3 miles south and home to local pubs, cafes, culture and conveniences, as well as access to the South West Coast Path and its stunning sea views. The location enables access to sites of natural and cultural beauty at the extremity of the South West, like the stunning views at Land's End, Lizard Point and the historic towns of Penzance and St Ives. Jumping on the A39 will give you access to Cornwall's most famous attractions, including The Eden Project and the castles at Pendennis and Tintagel.

Near enough to everything the Lizard has to offer but far enough away from Summer traffic etc for a peaceful break when you want it. Super setting and views and a lovely heated pool added to comfortable well equipped and kept accommodation.

A lovely, quirky little cottage, perfect for two people. Very well presented with a comfy bed and nicer kitchen than Ive got at home! Set in beautiful grounds with great walks and fantastic views, there is also a hot tub and swimming pool, with a games room for rainy days. Trisha and Kevin are very welcoming and friendly and the scones, jam and cloRead moretted cream were fab! Definitely would like to come back soon. Hide

Apart from that very cosy and comfortable - have stayed in this cottage and a larger one on the farm before and will be back again. The hosts are very amenable and helpful. The addition of the hot tub is very welcome but the swimming pool needs to be a lot hotter. The views and away-from-it-all atmosphere are so welcome!

Our stay at the cottage was great. The owners were very helpful & friendly. The swimming pool & Jacuzzi at the cottage was a added bonus. The cottage location is a five minute drive to a lovely sandy cove which is ideal to swim in.

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.
