With a hot tub set in beautiful landscaped gardens, Skyber Cottage sits within six miles of Falmouth resort and choice of superb beaches. This romantic couples retreat is ideal for fusing coast and country escapades and guarantees both rest and relaxation with the option of recreation and adventure within easy reach.
Near the village of Stithians, Skyber Cottage has the advantage of being a short drive from the beaches, coves and creeks on both Cornwall's north Atlantic and Helford River coastlines. Maritime Falmouth is buzzing with attractions including the harbour, National Maritime Museum, Pendennis Castle and eclectic mix of galleries, restaurants, inns and cafes for all tastes. Gyllyngvase beach with its arc of glorious white sands and Blue Flag status is a favourite, just a 10 minute walk from Falmouth town centre and is linked via the south west coastal path to Swanpool beach and Nature Reserve. Explore the almost secret creeks and subtropical gardens or enjoy golf, cycling or water sports at Stithians Dam. The villages of Stithians, Perranwell and Ponsanooth are a mile away with inns, restaurants and shops for provisions. The vibrant cobbled cathedral city of Truro is within a 20 minute drive with theatre, cinema and picturesque Malpas Village, a beautiful spot to walk alongside the river Fal. Portreath, Porthtowan and St Ives are all worthy destinations for a ramble or refreshment with a sea, beach or harbour view. Legendary Land's End, the iconic St Michael's Mount and the Eden Project are all within easy driving distance.
Skyber Cottage is a cosy and divinely presented barn conversion with a hot tub and garden area with terraced flower borders and meadow, set against a pretty backdrop of open countryside. A perfect bolt-hole for a couple seeking a restful rendezvous, this cute stone cottage sits comfortably detached from the owners own home. With an open-plan living room with dining and kitchen area and double bedroom with a smart ensuite shower room all oozing comfort and style, the accommodation is perfect for two. How better to end the day with an alfresco meal, glass of fizz or hot tub dip under the stars!

Falmouth, with its magnificent natural harbour (the third largest in the world), winding streets and beaches, will keep you occupied for hours. The town's old harbour-side pubs, excellent shopping, art gallery and stunning National Maritime Museum simply complete the picture. Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, is Falmouth's most popular attraction, sited on its own peninsula with superb panoramic sea views. Across from Falmouth harbour is the beautiful town of St Mawes, surrounded by the rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush green countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. Go there by car (15 miles) or take the passenger ferry from Falmouth (15 minutes). For nature lovers there is the Swanpool Nature Reserve, a lagoon and SSSI teeming with a variety of wildlife. Falmouth offers such a rich variety of landscape and attractions for people of all ages, it is sure to tempt you back time and again.
