If the state-of-the-art indoor swimming pool complete with underfloor heating and surround sound cinema projector isn't enough to satiate your thirst for luxury, wait until you see how this house has all been expertly combined with traditional Cornish charm.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Each of the five bedrooms at Ellenglaze provides a calming sanctuary for that long awaited, uninterrupted nights sleep. The ground floor double bedroom benefits from a spacious en suite wet room which leads through to the pool room (both doors can be locked). The remaining four bedrooms occupy the first floor; there is an en suite master super-king bedroom with bath tub and hand-held shower, a twin bedroom, a double and a king-size bedroom. The family bathroom has a stand-alone bath tub and monsoon walk-in shower. 


This exclusive self-catering property sits in an enviable position at the end of a country lane in Cubert with 2.5 acres of enclosed gardens and a characterful Cornish pub serving excellent food just a stone's throw away. The spacious gardens are well-tended with different levels providing a choice of spots to sit and soak up the late afternoon sunshine with only the distant baa-ing of the lambs to disturb.       

For Relaxation

The jaw-dropping heated indoor pool with mood-change lighting will be the jewel in the crown at this Cornish retreat; what better way to start the day than with an invigorating early morning dip to awaken the soul? Popular surf spots Holywell Bay, Perran Sands and Fistral beach are within striking distance for those who wish to try their hand at riding the dramatic Cornish waves.


Up to four cars can park on the driveway at Ellenglaze. The property is well-equipped with an electric Aga (with gas hob), dishwasher, American-style fridge/freezer, Nespresso coffee machine, washing machine and tumble dryer. Due to temperature regulation purposes, the pool house doors must remain closed. Please note, ceilings throughout the property are low.
