Lovingly fitted, furnished sympathetically and positioned in the countryside but with the coast nearby, this is a perfect retreat for families and couples alike looking to explore South Cornwall.

Once part of the historic Enys Estate and perfectly placed close to the waterside town of Penryn, this delightful former piggery is positioned in a courtyard setting next door to the owner's residence. Take a trip up to the historic Pendennis Castle and enjoy a Cornish ice-cream overlooking the panoramic views of Falmouth Bay and over to the fishing village of St Mawes. This special area also has a unique eco-climate where sub-tropical flowers and plants thrive. Nearby Penryn offers various eateries and pubs while Falmouth offers a charming mix of shops, art galleries, cafes and restaurants serving locally caught seafood. Alternatively head to the Pandora Inn for a spot of crabbing on the pontoon at high tide. Although it is steeped in its rural past, the property is also equipped with many contemporary comforts throughout.

From the courtyard, you enter through the stable door into a wonderfully cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with a vaulted ceiling. The beautiful kitchen has everything you need and is equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge, to create a feast for all after a days exploring. There is also a dining table for you to enjoy your lazy breakfast. The lounge area has two very comfortable sofas, so cosy up in front of the wood burner and watch your favourite programme on the Smart TV. The wonderfully cosy king-size bedroom has a built in wardrobe and full length mirror to get ready for your day after your lazy morning. There’s ample storage space and double doors leading to the garden from the lounge. The shower room has a shower, WC and washing machine. Completing the property is the twin bedroom at the other end of the property.

Outside, there is a spacious terrace which is furnished with a table and chairs so you can dine alfresco on the charcoal BBQ. The garden is perfect for relaxing in and is fully enclosed so ideal for dogs. There is parking for two cars on the gravelled drive. There is a field opposite the property for shared use, perfect for the whole family to play or let your four-legged friend run.

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

We had a lovely stay at Olive Cottage in August. The cottage had recently been refurbished and was simply beautiful. It was cosy and everything we had hoped for. The owners Emma & Jon made our stay perfect and made us feel so welcome, they even left us dog treats for our dog. The cottage is perfect for bringing a dog as there is an enclosed garden.Read more The location is perfect for day trips out and we had some great advise and recommendations from the owners. We would highly recommend Olive cottage Hide
