This sympathetically converted former milking parlour offers cosy accommodation in a peaceful location, the perfect base from which to explore the rugged Cornish coastline.

Situated in a central location between Cornwall’s north and south coasts, this property is an ideal base from which to explore the two. Head north and you’ll reach King Arthur’s Tintagel Castle and the popular fishing town of Port Isaac, famed for ITV’s Doc Martin. Head south and you’ll discover numerous coves and fishing villages as well as the Eden Project and Tamar Otter and Wildlife Park.

Inside, the split-level ground floor accommodation features an open plan lounge/diner. A wood burner sits against an exposed stone wall, which adds warmth and character, while French windows open out to the garden, perfect for summer evenings. This is a cosy and comfortable space in which to relax after a long walk while making the most of the TV/DVD available. The kitchen is light and airy with a vaulted ceiling of exposed beams and an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, large fridge, freezer, microwave and washing machine. Upstairs, the accommodation includes one king-size and one twin bedroom, both featuring exposed ceiling beams. The large bathroom is located off the lounge and includes a bath, shower and WC.

Outside, the shared enclosed lawn garden features a patio with BBQ. This is a peaceful spot in which to enjoy al fresco meals in the summer while enjoying the sprawling views across the Cornish countryside.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

We have stayed at the old milking parlour many times before and I'm sure we will be back. The cottage is perfect - comfortable, clean and with everything you could need for a great holiday.

The old milking parlour is a fantastic place to stay. It felt like home and was lovely to come back to after a day out. The views are spectacular. The property is superbly laid out and furnished with everything you might need. Mike and Chris and Molly the dog made us feel so welcome. Would definitely go back again and again.

This was my fifth time at the cottage and just as enjoyable as all the previous ones. A real 'home-from-home' and everything up to the usual high standard. Just a great place both to relax and use as a base for exploring other parts of Cornwall. Also great that both the cottage and owners Mike and Chris are dog-friendly!
