East Taphouse 1.5 miles. As you drive along the private road leading to Higher Penhole Farm, Wagtail Cottage and Poldark Cottage, you can't fail to be taken by the far reaching countryside views. These two superb semi-detached barn conversions are set within a small cluster of cottages, in rural farmland near East Taphouse, midway between South Cornwall’s stunning coast and moorland. Located in a quiet courtyard setting and surrounded by plenty of open space, lush meadows and wildlife, these two cottages provide an ideal base to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With the accommodation all on the ground floor, these beautiful cottages combine open beams with modern and character furnishings to create a superbly presented holiday home for couples, families and friends.
