The property

Truro 6.8 miles.

Discover Dog & Duck, a detached timber lodge nestled beside a serene lake offering a romantic haven in nature within the rural countryside of Trispen and close to the Cornish Atlantic coastline where the big beautiful beaches and rugged coves beckon days beside the sea.

Enjoy waking up to wildlife on your doorstep and views of the waters, with a beautiful interior to settle in each evening.

Find a serene colour palette creating a tranquil open-plan living space, with an antler chandelier hanging from the apex ceiling, amidst the exposed timber beams, it offers a unique country style.

Perch at the rugged breakfast bar made from a gorgeous piece of timber, sitting on the upcycled tractor seats while you watch your significant other treat you to a cooked breakfast to begin your day.

Within the delightful kitchen make use of the gas hob and electric oven, as well as a large fridge/freezer and microwave, offering all you need for a wonderful self-catered stay.

Feel the heat from the woodburning stove while you gaze outside from the plush floral sofa, talking over your favourite moments so far and what is to come next.

Take lunches outside to the sweet picnic bench, spend hours lounging in the hammock or enjoy a spot of fishing in the lake, taking the days as slowly as you like within this picturesque and peaceful setting.

Feel revitalised with a hot shower in the sleek shower room, before wrapping up in one of the provided bath robes.

Settle under the covers in the king-size bed within this pretty open layout, the wrought-iron frame in-keeping with the quaint style, rise the next day and sit with the wildlife as you wake up to your morning.

Enjoy exploring the local area and wandering into the village of Trispen for any essentials from the village shop, or head into the town of Truro, Cornwall's county town and home to a wealth of shops, pubs and heritage along the cobbled streets.

Marvel at the beautiful Truro Cathedral which towers over the landscape, and wander the delightful Victoria Gardens created to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.

Explore the bustling university town of Falmouth, where quirky cafés and bars offer many different watering holes, as well as home to the National Maritime Museum, Pendennis Castle and several art galleries.

Venture across the St Agnes Heritage Coast on the northern shores of Cornwall and explore along the South West Coastal Path to discover the idyllic waters of Trevaunance Cove, the historic Wheal Coates tin mining ruins and Chapel Porth Beach which is great for surfing and bodyboarding.

Find a host of attractions all around before retreating back to your secluded Cornish base at Dog & Duck.
