This detached property sits in a commanding position with amazing views across the countryside towards the Argal reservoir and to the sea beyond. A tranquil retreat, in a glorious location.
This stylish and thoughtfully converted property is a great base for a couple or small family – plus a pair of hounds – looking to explore the western reaches of Cornwall. With both the county’s north and south coasts within reach, as well as the Lizard Peninsula, you can set tails wagging as you sniff out sandy coves and crashing surf and walk craggy cliff tops.
This single-storey former workshop has been transformed into an open-plan living space with a king-size bedroom and shower room. Vaulted ceilings and exposed beams help retain the charm and character of the bright interior, which offers beautiful views from the cosy lounge area. Doors open out onto a private patio with outdoor furniture and a BBQ, with steps leading down onto a beautiful lawn area a shallow stream to one side – the ideal spot to sit on a balmy evening, enjoying the sea views under the setting sun while the stream burbles beside you
The property is located within 1 mile of the pub and village shop in Mabe Burnthouse, which in turn sits on the edge of the town of Penryn, where you will find a wider range of shops, eateries and watering holes. You are also less than 5 miles from the heart of Falmouth, where galleries, museums, sandy beaches and the harbour are waiting to be explored. Falmouth is also a great place to join the South West Coast Path as it turns southwards onto the Lizard Peninsula, with miles of stunning coastline. Alternatively, head north-west for 13 miles and you will reach the North Cornwall coast, and the opportunity to play in the Atlantic surf.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
