A unique single storey cottage converted from an old round house in which the grain was ground with a donkey driving a central mill stone. This was a common feature on many old Cornish farms, and the remaining big wooden beams give the cottage great charm.
Romantic cottage... The cottage has a stable door leading into a separate kitchen area, which is fitted in white country-style units with solid wooden work surfaces and attractive pale blue and lime splash back tiling. The kitchen is well equipped with all the things you may need down to items such as a cafetiere and garlic press.
Leading from the kitchen, the attractive semi-circular living room has an impressive vaulted ceiling with some original exposed beams and a Cornish slate wood burning open fireplace. For dining there is a delightful iron framed, wood topped table with 4 matching chairs, and a matching dresser.
The cottage has two Ekornes Stressless 2 seater sofas, arranged around the fireplace and LED television with DVD player. Double glazed French doors from the living room open onto a small south facing fenced garden with extensive views overlooking open farmland, St Breock Downs and the Little Petherick Creek valley. Patio furniture is provided for guests use.
The charming double bedroom has hand crafted solid wood furniture in a Provence shabby chic style, with a king size brassed iron bed with a deep sumptuous mattress. The bathroom is fitted with a quality thermostatic mixer shower over the bath, vanity light with shaver adapter and a large towel radiator. The cottage is fully double glazed and centrally heated.
If our two bedroom cottages are booked, smaller families may wish to consider this cottage with an extra bed or two in the living room. Please enquire before booking to confirm suitability of these options for your family.
