The property

This lovely studio style property is located in a quiet area of Cornwall's countryside, just a short distance from the golden sandy beaches of West Cornwall.

In the grounds of the friendly owners home, and ideal for couples looking to escape to this popular location, Byghan Thornton is a welcoming base to return to each evening.

Inside you'll find a bright and airy open-plan living space with a kitchen, dining and sitting area, a perfect spot to unwind.

After a happy day spent visiting one of the many nearby attractions, why not prepare a delicious meal in the smart fitted kitchen, before relaxing with all your favourite programmes.

As the evening draws to a close, retire to the plush double bed to rest your eyes before another day of discovering the local area.

Completing the interior of the property is a separate shower room, fit with a walk-in shower, basin and WC where you can freshen up ahead of the day's adventures.

Glazed doors lead outside to a very pretty suntrap garden which the owners have set aside solely for your use; it's a superb spot to enjoy breakfast before setting out for the day to explore the surrounding area.

The centre of Illogan is a short walk away and offers a couple of restaurants and a pub serving food, as well as a mountain bike hire shop, should you wish to venture along the coast on two wheels.

Be sure to bring your walking boots too as this property is great for avid walkers and nature lovers with Tehidy Woods Country Park close by, known for offering nine miles of paths covering 250 acres of tranquil woodland.

At Godrevy Heritage you can find stunning beaches, even more walking routes, and the chance to spot nature both from shore and in the waters.

The coast and picturesque sandy beach at Portreath is just two miles away, where you can stop for a bite to eat in one of many cafés and restaurants, before joining the South West Coast Path to enjoy a hike at Carvannel Downs.

The towns of St Ives and Penzance, with their idyllic harbours and vibrant arts scene, are also within easy reach.

St Ives is the perfect day out if you are looking for a touch of culture during your trip; the Tate Museum is home to contemporary art with a focus on St Ives, whereas Penzance is known for its charming high street home to an eclectic mix of shops.

Byghan Thornton is a fantastic base for exploring Cornwall's magnificent coastlines and attractions.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
