"Unique property in a fab location, perfect for getting away from it all. Gardens great. Loved the walk down to the cove. Views are fantastic. Thanks for a lovely week"
Leave the daily grind behind and escape to Lamorna for a well deserved break at this comfortable holiday retreat. Seek out the silence, tranquillity and spectacular views which this noted Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so loved by artists, has to offer. After breakfast on Avalon's suntrap terrace, read a book at one of the seating areas within Avalon's unique gardens – and simply relax.
Or sample the Sunday roast at the renowned, and recently renovated, Lamorna Wink former smugglers' inn, just 200 yards below Avalon, where the “fish and chips are as good as Rick Steins”. The bus service between Lands End and Penzance stops here. Go kayaking, fishing, or diving from the cove, which has its own cafe facilities. . Explore the many local footpaths, including the South West Coast Path, taking in the flora, fauna, birdlife, and fresh air, on the way.
Those needing to venture further afield within this very special part of Cornwall will find that Avalon makes an ideal base for visiting beaches at St Ives, Sennen, Porthcurno, the Minack Theatre, Mousehole, St Michael's Mount, Lands End, etc.
Set in its own grounds just a short walk from the middle of Lamorna, Avalon enjoys an elevated but sheltered position, affording far reaching valley and coastal views beyond Lamorna Cove to The Lizard.
This comfortable and well-equipped detached holiday home benefits from full central heating and double glazing. The layout is “reverse level” to maximise views. Upstairs comprises a spacious 25' Living Room with triple aspect windows. The Living Room is equipped with comfortable sofas, TV, DVD, WIFI, CD / radio, and incorporates a separate Dining Area. Adjacent to the Dining Area is the Kitchen, which also offers commanding views. Beyond the Kitchen is an enclosed Roof Terrace - ideal for breakfast outdoors (weather permitting!)
The lower floor has three bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes. The bathroom has an electric shower as well as a bath and washbasin. Separate WC.
Avalon's extensive hillside gardens contain a wide range of established plants and shrubs, including spring-flowering camellias.. They contain a maze of paths, terraces and secluded seating areas, ideal for playing "hide and seek" although care must be taken owing to the challenging terrain! There is no need to clamber about though, if all you want to do is chill and enjoy a BBQ at the picnic bench in the lower garden area by the Breakfast Terrace.
On site parking for several cars.

"Just the break we needed"
It was as if we were entering another world as we turned off the main road towards Lamorna on our first day, and that thought stayed with us throughout our holiday. The welcome tray was a nice touch after the journey, as were the fresh flowers. The place was well presented and we immediately felt at home in this stunning and so peaceful location - such a contrast from our normal routine. We made the most of the weather (non-stop sun!!!), both in the garden and on the beaches at Porthcurno and Sennen. We even managed the rugged walk to Mousehole, along which not only the scenery was breath-taking! Breakfast in the cove was excellent, likewise the local pub (Wink?) where there was a good atmosphere and decent food. Perhaps the highlight was our evening trip to the Minack Theatre, the only downside being the morning when we had to leave. We hope to return next year.
