Close to the north coast, and approached from the main road via a delightful half mile tree lined drive, Lavender Cottage is one of a cluster of three former estate workers cottages, sitting within the old Basset family country estate, known as Tehidy.
Tehidy Country Park can be accessed via a 500 yard path from the cottage door, where guests can wander around the 250 acres of woodland, bridle pathways and lakes, and admire the beautiful wild flowers .There is also access to miles of coastal paths. The cottage will appeal to small families looking for a place with lots to do, and equally attractive to couples looking for a relaxing location whatever the season.
South facing, the attractive front garden enjoys hours of sunshine. The lawned area offers sun late into the evening, making an idyllic, tranquil setting for alfresco dining. Over one hundred years old, Lavender Cottage, with attractive granite frontage, provides tasteful and comfortable accommodation for four guests and one well-behaved dog. This property has been renovated to a good standard whilst ensuring the cottage remains unspoilt, retaining many of its beautiful and original features.
The welcoming owners will meet all guests on arrival, and inside there will be some lovely, personal touches, including fresh flowers, wine and cream tea.
