The owners of this gorgeous Cornish home are well aware that many of their guests have busy city lives – often arriving like “tightly coiled springs” – and they see it as their role to help their guests de-stress. From Cornish cream teas in the welcome pack, to treats and decorations for special occasions, they really enhance any stay. The home, one half of an old converted mill, is impeccably tasteful too. Its upper-floor living room benefits from wonderful views, vaulted ceilings and original beams. All the double bedrooms have super-king beds that can be unzipped to create twins, so the rooms are as flexible and accommodating as the hosts. There's a games room for those who like their holidays competitive, and out in the backyard, you'll find a steaming hot tub, a picnic table and an expansive lawn for those warmer evenings together. Located in St Newlyn East, just five miles from Newquay and close to the A30, this is a great option for those who want to get out there, whether to country or coast. The artistic delights of St Ives, and The Eden Project are both just a short half an hour drive away, and you can try surfing and paddleboarding on the local beaches. It’s a great choice for a larger group of friends or an extended family looking to escape for some fresh air and unwind their springs in a seriously cosy country retreat.
