Through some unexpected twist of fate, we have gone from renting little houses in cold, inaccessible parts of the country to a huge 5 bedroomed farmhouse on the stunning Cornish Riviera, just off the Roseland Peninsula and within the wider estate of the Lost Gardens of Heligan. From our back garden we have a view of the sea and a footpath leading straight to Pentewan beach, less than half an hours walk away. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are on our doorstep and nowhere in Cornwall's wildly varied landscape is more than a day trip away. With there being only 2 of us, we had to decide what to do with the extra 4 bedrooms. A traditional run of the mill BandB was never going to be our style and long term lodgers seemed all very permanent. Right about then, Airbnb was recommended to us and the prefect solution clicked. What we offer now is a giant homestay, hopefully somewhere you can really relax and feel at home.Having a house full of guests all summer, we realised that everybody who stays here needs something a little different so we try to be as flexible as possible, no strict check in or out times (we work this on a day by day basis). If you are travelling as a family we can put a double or single airbed in one of the rooms so you can all stay together or we have a bunk room perfect for extra adults or kids. If you are not sure if we can help, the best thing to do is get in touch, let us know what you are looking for and we will do our best to make it happen. The kitchen and bathrooms are shared with the whole household, obviously you have your private bedroom and there is a traditional slate floored living and dining room shared with other guests. We have our own living area where our animals live so you will never find yourself tripping over us or our animals (unless you want to that is!). Next to the kitchen at the back of the house is the old pantry where you are welcome to make use of the fridge and storage space for your own food.On from the pantry we have room for secure bike, surfboard and kayak storage available.Breakfast consists of our own handmade organic bread, cereals, oats, fruit, a selection of teas and coffee, milk and soya milk, jam and marmalade. If you fancy a fry up you are welcome to supply the ingredients and use the kitchen to cook this yourself. We lay out our breakfast the night before so it is ready for you whether you rise at 6am or 12pm! There is parking available on the driveway for at least 5 cars. If you are travelling by public transport we are more than happy to collect and drop you from Truro or St Austell stations. We can also help with lifts around the local area for a small fuel charge. Our closest bus stop is at Heligan (10 minutes walk) but the drivers will usually stop outside the house for drop off's if you ask. Pets are welcome to stay at the house, obviously our first priority is keeping our animals safe and the house comfortable for everybody so please contact us directly first if you are interested in staying with a pet.Our closest shop is Lobbs Farm Shop, 10 minutes walk from the house. We are 1 mile from the historic fishing village of Mevagissey, home to plenty of pubs, restaurants, quaint little shops and an impressive two- walled harbour. Pentewan, also 1 mile along a dedicated footpath, is a small town with a pub, a few restaurants, cycle and water sports hire and an extensive, very beautiful beach with a bistro bar on the sand. The Eden Project is 10 miles away by car or there is dedicated cycle route directly from the house.
