TWO BEDROOMS, TWO ENSUITES!

Cappy Cottage is situated in the heart of the magical Lamorna Valley, famous for its former artists' colony - and for its timeless beauty and tranquility.

Dating from 1840, but sympathetically modernised and extended, this is the perfect romantic hideaway holiday home in which to unwind, and from which to explore the far west of Cornwall.

Nestling amongst the trees in this lush “valley of the flowers”, Cappy Cottage is just yards from the newly refurbished Lamorna Wink Inn (complimentary WiFi and accredited restaurant service now both available), whilst Lamorna Cove is only a short stroll beyond.

This self-catering holiday home is able to accommodate 4 people in comfort. The main cottage, with its 2 ft thick granite walls, retains all its period charm. Off the ground floor hallway is a double bedroom and separate bathroom / WC, whilst, at first floor level, are the spacious living room, with vaulted ceiling, and kitchen.

Although not suitable for unaccompanied younger children needing supervision, the separate Old Dairy Suite annexe (originally the site of Lamorna's dairy), offers the advantage of greater independence for two couples, or parents and teenagers, staying together at the property. The annexe accommodation comprises a triple aspect twin bedroom, with en-suite shower, washbasin and WC. A shared utility room lies adjacent.

The courtyard itself provides a perfect seating area for secluded external dining on those long hot sunny days - or just to relax and sunbathe. The courtyard opens onto Cappy Cottage's partly lawned terraced garden, where care must be taken owing to the slope of the ground. Screened by mature trees and shrubs, the garden affords excellent levels of privacy.

The West Country region

Cornwall is the United Kingdom's only area of sub-tropical climate, and enjoys the mildest and sunniest weather in the country. The far west of Cornwall, with its Bronze Age heritage, is the most unspolit and, with its stunning coastline, flora and fauna, miles of golden sandy beaches and turquoise seas, arguably the most beautiful. Although only 6 miles beyond Penzance, Lamorna has often been described by visitors as being part of another world where time seems to have stood still.

Penzance

Cappy Cottage is situated in the heart of the magical Lamorna Valley, noted for its timeless beauty and tranquility, and famous for its former artists' colony - the inspiration for recent love triangle movie "Summer in February" starring Dan Stevens, Emily Browning and Dominic Cooper.

Dating from the early 1800s, but sympathetically modernised, this self-catering cottage is the perfect romantic hideaway holiday home in which to unwind, and from which to explore the far west of Cornwall, including the spectacular golden sandy beaches at Porthcurno, Sennen and St Ives, and the attractions at St Michael's Mount, Lands End, the Minack Theatre and nearby Mousehole.

Nestling amongst the trees in this lush "valley of the flowers", Cappy Cottage is just yards from the Lamorna Wink Inn, whilst Lamorna Cove, where you can fish, swim, scuba dive, or go kayaking, is only a short stroll beyond. The cafe in the cove is also a popular stop for walkers using the South West Coast Path.
