A simply stunning character property with a heated outdoor swimming pool, a sauna and steam room, and lots of space inside and out; perfect for families travelling together.

Step off the beaten track and discover a side of Cornwall you have never experienced before, choosing this fabulous farmhouse that sleeps 10 as your base. Falmouth is just 5 miles away with the imposing Pendennis Castle overlooking the sea and the iconic harbour that’s frequented by magnificent ships, and there are plenty of gems to discover within easy reach. After a busy day, unwind in your private heated pool and make good use of the sauna and steam room.

Beneath the traditional exterior is a warm and welcoming property that blends contemporary convenience with old-world charm. Exposed stone, slate flooring and a wood burner set the scene in the cosy lounge, and the delightful sunroom is equally as inviting on crisp mornings where you can admire the gardens over your coffee. The heart of the home is the expansive kitchen with its wooden floors, chic cabinetry and wide range of gadgets, a sight that will thrill any enthusiastic foodie. Prepare your locally sourced ingredients and cook up a storm, then light the candles and uncork the wine to dine in style around the table. At bedtime, the bedrooms are guaranteed to please, especially after a spot of pampering in the bathroom with its with a roll-top bath and a separate rainfall-style shower. There are three bedrooms to choose from, including a king-size bedroom complete with an en-suite shower room and a dressing room. Outside, the garden has several terrace areas for al fresco meals and BBQ suppers. From April through to September you’ll have exclusive use of the heated outdoor pool as well as sauna and steam room facilities, accessed by several steps. The pool house offers an open-plan kitchen/diner for poolside dining, and there is a shower room as well as an elegant family room with vaulted ceilings, two super-king zip-and-link beds (which can be made up as twins on request) and seating. Completing the property is a utility room and ample parking for three cars.
