EXPLORE. DREAM. DISCOVER.
Director Sarah says
The location is the jewel in the crown of this stunning home; its enviable position overlooking the pretty Cornish village of St Mawgan, which lies within the valley of Lanherne, is idyllic. Perfect for woodland walks through the valley to Mawgan Porth beach after a Sunday roast with all the family!
FOOD AND DRINK
The contemporary well-equipped kitchen is a real hub of the house. The large cooker is ideal when cooking for larger groups, while the central island unit enables all to get stuck in with their holiday duties. The large open hatch to the dining room ensures the rest of your party can experience your culinary flair, or slide closed when the heat is on! The smaller pantry style room just off the kitchen has an additional butler's sink and storage, great for large party catering.
If you'd rather spend your self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).
You'll be spoiled for choice - both Jamie Oliver's Fifteen and Rick Stein's Seafood restaurant are just 15 mins from your doorstep. The Falcon Inn, just a stroll down the hill, offers lovely pub grub with a sunny beer garden.
