This cottage is in the world heritage site of the Luxulyan Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty with its unique network of waterside walks.

This beautiful cottage is accessed via a small country lane and located within seven acres of meadows and traditional broadleaf woodland with abundant wildlife, and is just a mile from the Eden Project. In addition, there is the Saints Way Pilgrim Trail and close by are The Lost Gardens of Heligan, numerous National Trust properties and gardens, Tate St Ives and much more. A five minute drive leads you to Cornwall's south coast which offers glorious beaches, secluded coves and picturesque fishing villages including Looe, Polperro and Mevagissey. For something different, why not take a stroll or the cycle route to the village of Luxulyan and take the local train to Newquay or try your hand at fishing only two miles away.

This cosy cottage offers an upside-down style accommodation, so on entering via a flight of external steps, you will find yourself in the inviting and comfy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner area. You can relax in the welcoming lounge with its TV/DVD and there is also Wi-Fi available. You can find everything you may need in the kitchen area including oven, gas hob, small fridge/freezer, and microwave. Taking the spiral staircase downstairs, you will find the snug and cosy double bedroom which is equipped with TV/DVD and a compact en-suite shower room with WC.

From the living space, a door leads out onto the first-floor veranda with seating. The external staircase leads down to the enclosed garden, from which, there are plenty of woodland walks to be enjoyed. There is parking available for one car, and secure storage for bikes is available underneath the property. Or, bring sparkle to your Winter. Get your skates on for another Winter of fun at the Eden Project. The ice rink will be open until the 23rd February 2020, enjoy seasonal activities, festive lights and explore the rainforest at twilight, just one mile from the property.

This little barn with its bedroom and bathroom downstairs was lovely to stay in. There is a very cosy feel to the place and we did not want to leave. Set with a beautiful enclosed garden surrounded by the woods of the Luxulyan valley, making this an ideal place for nature lovers.

Great location and setting. Extremely peaceful and some lovely walks around the area. The cottage is well equipped and perfect for a 'leave it all behind' break. Perfectly located for Par, Fowey, Charlestown and Mevagissy. Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful cottage, was perfect for the two of us. Location was amazing, 5 mins from Eden Project and in the heart of the woods with trails. Would have loved to stay here longer. Also thanks to the owners for allowing us to book so last minute!
