Beautiful stays in Duloe, Praa Sands and Padstow.

Lesceave Farmhouse, Praa Sands   

Stylish Cornish Cottages have just added this incredible property to their family of beautiful houses. Lesceave is a stunning Farmhouse, sitting in its own extensive grounds nestled in the hillside above Praa Sands, a glorious mile-long sandy beach.

It is a much-loved family home, with spacious accommodation and the most incredible views over Praa Sands, Prussia Cove and Mount’s Bay beyond.  

Located down a quiet rural lane, just a five-minute stroll down to the beach and with direct access to the South West Coast Path, the house sleeps eight, with a separate dining room, sitting room and a further sun room. There are five bedrooms, two doubles, a twin and two singles, with two family bathrooms and a separate WC. Extensive gardens wrap around the property, with several different seating areas to enjoy the incredible views and stunning sunsets. Lesceave is a dog-friendly property and, as newly listed, has great availability this year. 

Positioned half way between Helston and Penzance this is the perfect location for exploring the whole of west Cornwall, so if you are looking for the perfect escape for your family holiday, look no further – book now!

Rainbow Cottage, Duloe

A charming upside-down barn with wonderful views of the Cornish countryside and the 35 acres of Old Lanwarnick. The open-plan living space makes for easy living with a well-equipped kitchen and the Juliet balcony to watch the world go by.

Perfect for the cold winters with the woodburner making things cosy, or on a summer’s day sitting out in the fully enclosed, private garden, where the whole family – including your four-legged friend – can play to their hearts’ content.

Rainbow Cottage sleeps three. The accommodation comprises a master bedroom with en-suite toilet, as well as a single bedroom and a family bathroom complete with whirlpool bath.

It’s great as a base from which to explore the local area too, being just ten minutes from Looe and Polperro, with several walks right on the doorstep. Having said that, nobody could blame you for staying on site and making the most of Lanwarnick’s on-site facilities, including a hot-tub, gym, woodland walk, as well as the opportunity to really pamper yourself by booking a massage!

Rainbow Cottage is just one of six home-from-homes available at Old Lanwarnick. Accommodating from two to eight guests, whether you’re travelling with just the two of you, or the entire clan, we highly recommend making Old Lanwarnick the base for your next Cornish adventure.

Old Barn Tregonetha, Padstow

Set in a peaceful hamlet in north Cornwall, Old Barn Tregonetha is a stylish, self-catering, eco barn conversion boasting character and luxury throughout. With its unique and contemporary, eco-friendly design and quiet rural location not too far from Padstow, Old Barn Tregonetha is a true luxury self-catering gem. The vaulted ceiling of the first-floor sitting room creates a large open space for accomplished pianists to play the regularly tuned quality piano, entertaining guests all the while. 

During the warmer months, open the south-facing balcony door to welcome in the all-day sunshine and enjoy the peaceful wildlife in the mature well-kept garden. Old Barn Tregonetha has everything you need, including a modern kitchen with state-of-the-art electric Aga and separate utility room. It also has electric vehicle chargers installed so you can remain ‘fully charged’ throughout your stay! 

Independent and not part of a complex, at Old Barn Tregonetha, it’s all in the detail. On arrival you can expect a welcome hamper packed full of local Cornish goodies. You’ll also benefit from a Nespresso coffee machine (with pods included), luxury linen and towels (including towels for the beach), iPod docks for entertainment, a host of board games, magazines, plus a woodburner and a well-stocked log pile for cosy evenings spent relaxing by the fire. 

If you’re among the growing number of holidaymakers seeking a sustainable, eco-friendly way to stay, with no compromise on luxury, then be sure to book your stay here soon!
