Single holiday let sleeping up to 3 guestsWinner of Silver in the Cornwall Tourism Awards Self Catering Property of the Year ’17/‘18 category and awarded Highly Commended in their Wildlife Friendly Tourism Business Award category, you will be staying in one of the best locations in Cornwall and in the words of a recent guest:
"better in real life than you could imagine! The farm was just stunning, the comfort & interior were exquisite & the hot tub was the cherry on top. Couldn’t recommend enough. Absolutely stunning, dreamy, beautiful!"
Located in the stunning Tamar Valley that forms the border between Devon and Cornwall, close to Dartmoor and the sea, Orchard Cottage forms part of what used to be a renowned daffodil farm. Now a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest the over 40 acres of rare Salt Marsh habitat has an excellent range of rare plants and birds. It is home to at least 2 types of owl (Barn and breeding pair of Tawny Owls) which can regularly be seen hunting on the marsh, herons, buzzards, egrets, kingfishers, bats, badgers and deer.
The feeling of seclusion from the 'real world' is very relaxing but with the benefit of being within striking distance of shops and plenty of activities. It is a short walk to the waterfront, which accesses the private shingle beach. Or perhaps explore the orchard and woodlands? Relax in the hammock overlooking the river and views to Devon. Or enjoy a game of tennis before soaking in your private hot tub?
A Victorian Gothic style Cottage which provides romantic cosy ground floor accommodation for 2-3 people. This decor has a modern feel, and was fully refurbished in 2016. The cottage has a modern kitchen / dining room with a dishwasher, washing machine and full cooking facilities, a jazzy bathroom with walk-in shower, a delightful living / sleeping area with oak flooring and a wood burner. Outside there’s a private garden area overlooking the orchard with your own hot tub and al-fresco dining space.
The property is ideal for a couple or a couple with a young child as in addition to the king sized double bed, there is a sofa bed and plenty of space for a cot (which we can provide) if needed. As the cottage is all on the ground floor with step free access, it is suitable for people with limited mobility. The bathroom has been designed with this in mind with a very low profile walk-in shower and grab rail next to the loo.
The cottage is attached to the main farmhouse property with its own parking just outside.
Luxury Egyptian Cotton bed linen, white fluffy cotton towels, complementary toiletries, WiFi and welcome hamper are included.
In addition to the facilities on site, locally there are glorious gardens and beaches to visit, adventures to be had (bicycling, sailing, walking, fishing, rock climbing, fishing....and did we mention we are just 10 minutes away from St Mellion International Resort with their Jack Nicklaus-designed, parkland course and luscious spa!) or just relaxation in comfort with a gentle game of table tennis in the Games Room.
Also we are Cornwall Wildlife Trust Members which gives our guests access to their wildlife education sessions for children which include mini-beast safaris, rock pooling events and bird box making. We can also offer our guests discounted tickets for the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Eden Project.
