The Picture Window
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Set on the beautiful, unspoilt south Cornish coast in the grounds of Penwarne Manor is a collection of lovingly converted barns available to let. Five, Grade II listed stone cottages, each one sympathetically renovated in 2011 to an extremely high standard with all the modern amenities you would expect, whilst retaining the charm of a C18th century building.
Privately owned, Penwarne Manor nestles in the Portmellon valley with stunning views over the hamlet of Portmellon and the sea. Its idyllic, rural location is less than a mile from Mevagissey. The properties standalone in a tranquil setting offering a complete break from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Self-catering holiday accommodation is available all year round.
Penwarne Manor provides seclusion without isolation and the perfect spot for your holiday. Whether it's just the two of you, a family or you're a group of families holidaying together we offer something for everyone. It's high spec but in a relaxed and simple set-up, so those with small children need not worry.
The Picture Window has 2 bedrooms, 1 with double bed and ensuite, and the other a twin which can be configured as a super kingsize bed. There is also plenty of room for a cot. Tri-fold doors allow the light to flood into the open plan living space, which includes modern furniture and fully fitted kitchen. Fold back the doors and dine-out on the decking with a BBQ.
Penwarne Manor is flanked by beautiful woods, beaches, country lanes and coastal paths. The nearest beach is Portmellon, a family friendly cove which provides a safe environment for swimmers. It also has a local pub.
The village of Mevagissey is a 10 minute walk away. Featuring numerous shops and cafes. It is also one of the few working harbours in this part of Cornwall.
Within a 10 minute drive are Gorran Haven (another family friendly beach with some amenities and toilets), Hemmick Beach (beautiful and unspoilt) Vault (a bit more remote) and Caerhays Beach (also with some amenities and toilets).
For those who want to venture further afield there is the Roseland peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty.Other places to visit within an hour are St. Mawes, Padstow, Newquay, Wadebridge, Falmouth, Truro and Watergate Bay. We're ideally situated for exploring both the North and South coasts, each with something different to offer.
The Eden Project is nearby, around a 20 minute drive away. The Lost Gardens of Helligan (including the excellent Lobbs Farm Shop which sells a wide range of local, organic produce) is only a 10 minute drive away.

"Top notch accommodation."
We spent a week in the Picture Window and I have to say it is probably the best accommodation we have stayed in. Set in a quiet valley minutes from the gorgeous Portmellon bay the Picture Window really is an amazing place to stay. The first floor is open plan with a huge well equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge. Downstairs are the bedrooms one with on-suite. There has been no expense spared with the furniture and fittings - everything is of high quality and spec. The wood burner in the lounge is beautiful as is the walk in shower in the master bedroom on-suite. Vicky and Nathan the owners really have thought of everything in order to make your stay as relaxing as possible. The welcome pack which includes bread, milk, eggs, bacon, sausages, jam, chutney, wine, sea salt crackers and homemade brownies is a thoughtful touch. We will definitely be back one day.
