Tucked away off the beaten track in a small hamlet of granite stone cottages, Butterfly Cottage offers a chance to escape from the pressures of every day and enjoy a true cottage experience. With easy access to the West Cornwall coastline, the old market town of Penzance with many restaurants and bars, antique and craft shops is a short drive, whilst the breathtaking sunsets from Land's End is a simple drive across the awe-inspiring moors. There are many white sandy beaches all within easy reach as are countless coves. Also, the many relics that form the archaeology of West Penwith are on the doorstep.
The spacious kitchen/diner is newly fitted with a range of
modern shaker style cabinets and integral appliances including a new black oil fired cooking range. Deep red suede sofas with matching throws add vivid contrast to the exposed granite stone walls of the lounge and good artwork with extra touches epitomise and enhance the character of the room. Upstairs, the bedrooms are attractively presented and the double room boasts a lovely double aspect and far reaching views. All beds are firm providing good support and comfort for guests, and there is good storage in each room. The small cottage gardens to the front and rear feature well planted borders with shrubs and plants that give year round colour, with useful herbs for home cooking.
Across the lane there is a more open expanse of garden which gives children the freedom to play, while adults sit back and enjoy far reaching views or unwind with a family barbecue. A substantial new summerhouse furnished with wicker sofas is a wonderful garden room that will enable guests to make the most of their country retreat. The newly built garage is another asset as it allows guests to store bicycles and beach gear securely.
Butterfly Cottage is hugely popular with families and couples alike and the friendly owners can arrange child or pet minding if required. The provision for pets and the comfort provided by the wood burner and range cooker ensure that out of season visitors are extremely well catered for, especially with the provision of ample parking.

About the location
St Ives 8 miles.
One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas. The spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves, winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Scilly Isles. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
