Originally built in the 18th century, this stunning home has been perfectly renovated to provide guests with a blend of luxury and comfort. The perfect romantic bolthole.

This cosy cottage, which was until recently part of the Lanhydrock Estate, provides guests with the ideal escape to enjoy a blend of the idyllic Cornish countryside and its golden sands and turquoise waters. It’s just a short drive to Padstow where you can indulge in Michelin-starred restaurants. Or choose to explore the historic Charlestown harbour which featured in Poldark, or Port Isaac, the haunt of Doc Martin, both within 18 miles away. The cottage is also in a prime position for guests to visit the well-renowned Eden Project, which is just 5 miles away, or you can walk to the National Trust’s Lanhydrock House and gardens. Finally, even closer to home, those walkers and cyclists amongst you are well catered for, having easy access to the Camel Trail, Bodmin Moor and Cardinham Woods. For golfers, the Lanhydrock Golf Course and restaurant is under a mile away. The property is close to the A30, allowing easy access to South Cornwall including Land’s End, St Michael’s Mount and St Ives.

Upon entering the cottage, you will immediately be enticed by a mix of luxury and charm. With space to hang your coat and walking poles provided, you have everything you need to enjoy the surrounding trails. The kitchen space is well equipped including an electric range cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer, whilst there is also a dining table fit for two to enjoy a romantic meal. Making your way through to the lounge space, you will notice those creature comfort features such as a Smart TV, PlayStation 4, a comfortable sofa, an additional chair and of course a wood burner (first basket of logs provided) to cosy up and really relax into the evenings. Moving back through the home, you will find your way to the bedroom which contains a king-size bed and plenty of wardrobe space too. If the Smart TV in the lounge wasn’t enough, you have an additional Smart TV in this room also. This room then leads directly onto the cottage bathroom, which provides a choice of a spa bath or a separate shower, and a WC.

Outside, the fully enclosed garden, which is a real sun trap, is incredibly well designed to contain all those features needed to make the most of any sunny day or starry night. Take a dip in the hot tub, catch a tan on the sun loungers, enjoy the summer house whatever the weather or even light the flames on either the fire pit or BBQ provided. There is no doubt this space can be enjoyed any time of day. There is private parking for 1 car.

Wow was our first impression and wow was pretty much how it remained. Absolutely perfect, it had everything. From decor to location, we both wanted to move in.......what more can you say. I have to say we could of just stayed in the cottage all week given sunnier weather. Well done to the owners, we definitely have to come back.

We had a very relaxing happy week in Cornwall with the Churn as our base. It is as lovely, cosy and convenient as it is advertised. Its decoration is of very good taste and the facilities provided are excellent.

Lovely little cottage. Perfect for me and my labrador. The sofa and bed was very comfortable, the facilities were top notch in the kitchen with a wide range of equipment (not your usual blunt knives in a holiday cottage!). Everything was clean and cosy. Right on the doorstep is a lovely walk into a national park, really good location for travellingRead more around Cornwall and exploring the beaches. Hosts were very attentive, replied to my emails promptly and provided a great home away from home. Hide

Harrogate is a thriving, historic town at the heart of North Yorkshire and at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This fantastic town is a hit with culturists, historians and holidaymakers alike. Dubbed ‘The English Spa’ in 1596, the town boasts spa water high in iron, sulphur and salt. The Royal Pump Room is still open today as a museum, showcasing the original equipment that was used in its heyday. Two other major draws to the town are the Harrogate Convention Centre and the Great Yorkshire Showground. The former is a multi-purpose venue large enough to house huge conventions and business conferences. Many of the events are fan-based like the Lego-themed attractions and comic-cons. The latter is an outdoor venue that hosts even large events and shows, namely the agricultural Great Yorkshire Show.

Fancy a day of walking? Head to the Valley Gardens, home to a multitude of landscaped gardens that embrace different styles and influence. For further horticultural foray, head to the RHS Garden, Harlow Carr. The stunning gardens provide a leafy retreat where you can wander through woodland and alongside waterways.

The town centre is home to an array of boutique fashion shops, as well as high street favourites in and around the Victoria Shopping Centre. The Montpellier Quarter also offers exclusive shops and a huge range of antique dealers, ideal for hunting out a unique bargain. This fashionable spa town also plays host to many Michelin-starred restaurants too.

There is a host of places to visit and spend time at in and around Harrogate. We have a selection of holiday homes that include chic apartments, elegant townhouses and cosy cottages for romantic stays to inspire your break in Harrogate. Why not visit our collection to find your perfect property?
