    “We had a glorious week in Cornwall in this well appointed apartment.”

    The owners were friendly and welcoming, and provided lovely homemade scones and additional extras which were a nice touch. The views across open fields and beyond from the apartment were exceptional, and the balcony lovely to sit on after a long day of fun! The garden was great for our dog, although most mornings we accessed the bridle path and woodland directly opposite the property, for longer early morning walks.

    The owners were friendly and welcoming, and provided lovely homemade scones and additional extras which were a nice touch. The views across open fields and beyond from the apartment were exceptional, and the balcony lovely to sit on after a long day of fun! The garden was great for our dog, although most mornings we accessed the bridle path and woodland directly opposite the property, for longer early morning walks. This is a well appointed property is perfectly located for exploring all the coastal areas of West Cornwall. My husband, myself and our dog Henry had a fabulous time and hope to return later in the year.

The property

Carnon Downs 1.1 miles.

This fantastic holiday apartment, Spires, is located on the outskirts of the charming, rural village of Carnon Downs in Playing Place, Cornwall.

Spires accommodates two guests and two well-behaved dogs for a relaxing Cornish retreat, providing close access to the local amenities, a private balcony with breathtaking views, and a great location to explore nearby activities.

Utilise the well-equipped kitchen in the open-plan living area to prepare delicious, home-cooked meals.

Then, have an outdoor dinner on the balcony while taking in the expansive views of the surrounding countryside.

As night falls, retire to the comfortable, tastefully-decorated bedroom where you can relax in a night's rejuvenating embrace.

If you feel like exploring the local area, stop by The Punchbowl and Ladle for some pub food in a rustic, cottage-style setting, or stock up on necessities at the SPAR in Carnon Downs.

While you're in the region, be sure to visit the Trelissick Gardens National Trust site, a picturesque estate ideal for riverfront and forest walks.

The cathedral city of Truro, which is also home to the Roseland Heritage Coast nature reserve and the appropriately named Truro Cathedral, is only a short distance away.

A short drive away is the seaside resort of Falmouth, where guests can unwind on Gyllyngvase Beach or explore the ancient Pendennis Castle grounds.

A little further away is Newquay, where eager beachgoers will find Newquay Beach and Fistral Beach, while the iconic Huer's Hut offers breathtaking views of the Atlantic coast.

Spires is the ideal place to stay for a memorable journey to Cornwall with a loved one.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

CARNON DOWNS

Truro 3.5 miles; Falmouth 8 miles.

The lovely Cornish village of Carnon Downs offers a shop, Post Office and pub. Not too far away is the village of Portreath with its sandy beach, whilst the city of Truro and the popular town of Falmouth are within easy reach by car as is the north and south coastline with its sandy beaches, ideal for those wishing to surf or walk the coastpath. Fans of classic cars will enjoy a visit to Perranwell Station which gives you the opportunity to hire a Morgan car for the day. Also nearby in the Bissoe Valley is Bissoe Bike Hire where you can hire a bike and enjoy the sights of the old mining works and beautiful wooded valleys as you cycle coast to coast from Portreath to Devoran or just enjoy a snack in the café. Cornwall’s only city, Truro has a magnificent cathedral, the Royal Cornwall Museum, the Hall for Cornwall, which is a theatre and concert venue, as well as a number of shops, pubs and restaurants. In Falmouth you will find a natural harbour - the third largest in the world. Here you will find boat trips up the Carrick Roads, safe beaches, the National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle, which was built by Henry VIII and is the town’s most popular attraction. For garden lovers, there is not only The Lost Gardens of Heligan, but Trelissick, Trebah and Glendurgan, all of which are nearby. A short trip across the King Harry Ferry will take you to the beautiful Roseland Peninsular which is well worth a visit. With the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Land’s End within driving distance makes Carnon Downs a convenient base for exploring this part of Cornwall.
