Tucked away in a peaceful residential area on the outskirts of the quaint village of Kilkhampton rests this impressive single-storey cottage, Trepolpen.
Boasting a Mediterranean-style layout with a well-maintained courtyard space taking centre stage amongst the spacious grounds, Trepolpen offers a homely base for a family or a group of friends looking to explore the delights of Cornwall.
Park up in the spacious driveway before following a handful of gravelled steps to the charming courtyard area welcoming you at the foot of this lovely dwelling; a lovely spot to enjoy a steaming cup of coffee as you soak in the crisp morning air.
Step over the threshold and make your way inside your home-from-home from the duration of your stay, following the oak flooring through to the fabulous open-plan living space, thoughtfully laid-out with a snug seating area, well-equipped kitchen and dining area, and flooded with natural light welcomed in through the patio doors.
Kick-off your shoes and settle down to enjoy a moment of peace in front of the television following an action-packed day, gently warming the sociable space with the glow of the woodburning stove.
Share a bottle of wine with the designated chef with a seat at the elegant breakfast bar as they utilise the range of modern amenities provided in the contemporary kitchen space to rustle up some tasty treats for the group.
Gather together at the dining table, adorned with vibrant seating for six guests, and serve the fruits of your labour, or venture out through the patio doors and ascend the steps to the outdoor seating area to indulge in an alfresco affair, enveloped by the peaceful setting of the well-maintained and colourful grounds of the garden.
As the evening grows darker, venture back inside and retire to one of the three well-presented bedrooms to rest your head, with the choice between a king-size, benefiting from its own en-suite shower, a further king-size, or a twin room with a zip and link feature, making for a flexible sleeping arrangement for couples, children and friends sharing.
In the morning, kick-start your day with an invigorating rinse in the shower room, or opt for an indulgent soak in the tub situated in the contemporary family bathroom, both stylishly tiled throughout and ideal for avoiding morning queues!
Take advantage of your central location and take the short stroll into the heart of Kilkhampton where you'll find a handful of amenities, including a traditional country pub, a quaint tearoom and a delicious takeaway, alongside a well-stocked convenience store, ideal for picking up any last-minute essentials.
Pack up your bucket and spade and travel to the popular seaside resort of Bude, here you can marvel at the remarkable 19th century architecture of The Castle Bude, home to a fascinating local history museum and an on-site café or feel the sand between your toes as you paddle the shores of Summerleaze Beach.
Thrill seekers can try their hand at paddleboarding at the semi-natural sea pool, or if that's not your thing, embark on an adventure along the South West Coast Path, running alongside the rugged Cornish coastline, passing hidden coves and offering panoramic views across the scenic waters.
Keep the little ones entertained and venture further afield to The Milky Way Adventure Park, where you can expect thrills on the towering rollercoasters, come face-to-face with birds of prey at the wildlife display, or catch a live performance at the indoor arena.
Tour the extensive landscaped grounds of the Victorian-era Hartland Abbey, dating back to the 18th century, before adding a touch of luxury to your stay with an indulgent spot of traditional afternoon tea at the on-site tearoom.
Whisk your loved ones away on an unforgettable retreat with a stay at Trepolpen.
