The property

An idyllic tranquil spot, this cute log cabin is perfect for a romantic getaway. Sitting within 2.5 acres of lush gardens with a rippling stream and leisurely walks it is tucked away from the owners' residence overlooking a picturesque pond. The property sits in the tiny hamlet of Tretheague Mill, just a mile from the village of Stithians and within a few miles of Falmouth with its modern art, museums, cappuccinos and cocktails. The town has a vibrant feel with the vast harbour forming a dramatic backdrop. Super yachts, dinghies, cruise ships and even the odd battle ship vie for space and we recommend hopping on a boat trip from the town quay to take in the spectacle. With regular excursions around the Carrick Roads, to Truro or the delightful village of St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula, there are plenty of options.

For quintessential Cornwall, head to the villages of Helford Passage and Helford; linked by a passenger ferry these little gems are best explored on foot. Also within a short drive are the spectacular sub-tropical gardens at Trebah, Glendurgan and Trelissick; some of Cornwall's finest. The villages of Stithians, Perranwell and Ponsanooth are nearby with shops, inns and restaurants. Visit the Golden Lion Inn and Lakeside Restaurant and sample some of the delicious local cuisine and then take a wander around the lake or try your hand at sailing or windsurfing at the water sports centre.

The wood clad interior has been cleverly designed with a truly comfortable sitting room with squashy sofas ready to snuggle up together. The dining area opens to a functional kitchen with an electric 2 ring hob built into a small freestanding oven. The harmony of stylish furnishings and fabrics blend cleverly with the outside environment to create a warm, inviting ambience that will appeal to honeymoon couples and those seeking romance.

Enjoy the beautiful views over open countryside from the pretty patio and garden, where you can relax with a chilled drink on the benches dotted around or dine alfresco in the sunshine, relax and soak up this very special holiday home. For groups of up to four adults Pond Cottage can be booked with the cabin. Please see reference 959223 for details and prices.

About the location

TRURO

Mylor Bridge 8.1 miles; Falmouth 11 miles; Redruth 11.5 miles.

Truro is the retail centre of Cornwall with a good range of independent shops as well as national stores all within a compact city centre. With its eclectic range of art galleries, bars, restaurants, cinema, theatre, museum and outstanding cathedral this small city is a superb year round destination. Steeped in history and intriguing architecture there is always plenty to do and see. Just meandering through the Georgian cobbled streets is a pleasure in itself. With many peaceful parks all within a short stroll from the centre it is a most relaxing city to visit. A wonderful day trip can be had from Truro to Falmouth along the stunning Fal estuary with many options to disembark and pick up the boat later along the scenic river trip.
