Pond Cottage stands detached from the owners' residence in 2.5 acres of lush gardens set around a picturesque pond and bordered by a rippling stream. An idyllic spot to leisurely idle time away, the tiny hamlet of Tretheague Mill is a quiet, tranquil world of pure escapism, tucked away in blissful countryside just a mile from the village of Stithians.
A single storey converted barn, with one step from the parking area onto the patio which in turn leads to the entrance, its beamed interior is spaciously open-plan. Featuring a contemporary kitchen at one end with one step up into a separate dining area, the living room exudes comfort with tasteful furnishings and a stylish wood burner adds a warm, inviting ambience. Alfresco meals can be enjoyed on the patio which overlooks your own peaceful lawned garden and you may wander freely through the grounds or take a romantic picnic beside the wildlife pond.
When you wish to explore there are many country walks, one of which will take you to Stithians Lake, popular for watersports, angling and birdwatching, where you can sample the local ale and excellent fare at The Golden Lion Inn. Set within a few miles of the bustling maritime resort of Falmouth, nearby beaches, and the tranquil creeks and inlets of Restronguet and Mylor, with easy access to golf courses, tropical gardens and the coast to coast cycle trail, there is much to see and do.
Pond Cottage is ideally situated for exploring west Cornwall. Stithians has a small Post Office/store, fish and chip shop and a pub which serves good food.
