Ancarva is an unspoilt, cosy little cottage in a pretty village setting. It is located in the heart of Perranwell close to Falmouth on the south Cornish coast (10mins) and St Agnes on the north 20mins). Perranwell itself is a classic welcoming Cornish village with its own pub (which serves excellent food and good ale with a warm and friendly atmosphere), village shop/Post Office, church and excellent transport links including train station with regular trains to both Truro and Falmouth.

Ancarva is a quintessential semi-detached Cornish cottage with granite stone walls, beamed ceiling , wood burner, and stable door. When you walk through the front door you are welcomed by a porch which is ideal for taking off coats and boots after a great day out exploring Cornwall. Through to an open plan Kitchen, dining ,and living room which gives it a real cosy feeling especially in the winter when the log burner is glowing.

The well equipped kitchen offers a table and four chairs, French dresser, a washer/dryer, electric oven, grill and hob with extractor over, microwave oven, fridge freezer, toaster, kettle. and everything else you could need for day to day living.

The living room has comfortable seating for four with a wood burner (refurbished fireplace with new wood burner (2014) and original range surround) , TV/DVD, radio with ipod dock, and WiFi.


There are two bedrooms upstairs, one with a double bed and bed side tables, fitted wardrobe, chest of draws and TV/DVD above. The other has a full single bed with a cabin bed above, bed side table, fitted wardrobe and chest of draws. Both bedrooms have electric oil heaters.

The bathroom has a modern white bathroom suit with double ended bath with electric shower above and glass shower door, heated towel rail and shaver socket. All linen and towels are provided and are of good quality (sorry but we do not provide beach towels).

The cottage even has its own 'secret' garden by a stream. The peaceful private lawned garden with patio (table/chairs and BBQ), perfect for breakfast or an evening drink, is accessed by a short private (50 yards) footpath beside the cottage. There is also a shed for bicycles/surfboards. There is a small gravelled drive with private parking space for one car on the property.

Ancarva makes an excellent base from which to explore all Cornwall has to offer. The thriving port of Falmouth is only 10 mins away with its award winning beaches with water sports and beach side restaurants, National Maritime Museum and varied choice of shops, restaurants and bars. Falmouth is a 'proper' Cornish holiday town and has a lot to offer with its many markets, festivals and regattas throughout the year. Cornwall's cathedral city of Truro is also only a short drive. where you will find high street shops, bars, restaurants, cinema and the Hall for Cornwall theatre. The beautiful Helford River estuary and Roseland peninsular are easily accessed. by road or water taxi's / ferry's. For a change of scenery try the more rugged north coast where towns such as Porthtowan and St Agnes are becoming popular haunts of the Cornish surfing scene.

Walkers and ramblers can delight in some of the most spectacular south west coast path scenery including the Roseland Peninsular as well as countr walks right outside Ancarva's front door. Cornish garden lovers are also spoilt for choice with Trelissick, Trebah, Glendurgan and many more easily accessible.

The area is a walkers paradise with country walks outside the front door, creekside walks and the south coastal pathway are within a short drive. In the cottage you will find an array of walking guides and information. The cyclist is also catered for with the Devoran to Portreath Bissoe trail literally adjacent to the village (cycle hire is available at Bissoe).

If it's a romantic break you're looking for, ask us about our Romantic Break package (optional extra's).For romantic short breaks or just as a special treat why not hire a classic Morgan open top sports car from the village garage for the day and cruise the Cornish coast and countryside.

The cottage is ideal for 1 - 3 adults or 1-2 adults with young children(5+).
