Set in a secluded and peaceful location at the end of a quiet lane, The Designer's Loft is a charming apartment covered in beautiful Virginia creeper and surrounded by three acres of landscaped mature gardens, a trout stream, lily pond and croquet court. It is situated next to the only other two properties in the valley: the owner's house, and The Granary, a small cottage which can also be booked with Duchy Holidays.
The entrance opens into a hallway with washing machine, space for coats and shoes, and a pine staircase leading up to the apartment which occupies the first floor. The landing is decorated with posters, pictures and awards showcasing the owner's long and interesting career as a film designer.
The property has beamed ceilings throughout, and is heated by night storage and portable heaters. Bedroom one is furnished with two single beds (3'), a wardrobe and chest of drawers, and bedroom two offers a double bed (4'6"), wardrobe and chest of drawers. The bathroom has a shower over the bath, basin and WC. At the end of the corridor is the open plan sitting room / kitchen / diner with high beamed ceilings and lots of light. A four seater leather sofa, two matching chairs, wood log burner (logs not supplied), and lamps make this a cosy space in which to watch the TV, a DVD, or read a book.
The kitchen has a breakfast bar with two chairs, and is equipped with electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, and toaster. A dining table with four chairs provides a sociable place to eat, and French windows at the end of the room open onto a balcony with four chairs and small table, from which to enjoy wonderful views of the garden and listen to the birdsong in this tranquil location.
Outside, guests are welcome to make use of the gardens, which are shared by the three properties. A small patio with wooden garden furniture provides a peaceful place to sit in the sun near the stream and enjoy the surroundings (children must be supervised).
Please note that The Designer's Loft is reached by a narrow and very bumpy gravel lane, less than half a mile long, which may not be suitable for some low cars. A parking space is available outside the property for guests and their friends.
Ideally placed on the north coast to explore the rest that Cornwall has to offer, The Designer's Loft is only two and a half miles from St Agnes, a picturesque village with a lovely sheltered bay. Perranporth is four miles away and can be reached in just a four minute drive, and boasts a beautiful three mile long beach with golden sand, good surf and several shops and cafes. The cathedral city of Truro is eight miles away; and Padstow, St Ives and Falmouth all within an easy 40 minute drive.
Please note this property does not provide towels or tea towels. Towels can be hired from us at £6 per person (one bath towel and one hand towel), or feel free to bring your own.
This property does not accept children under the age of 8 years old.
