Its location on the gorgeous Lizard Peninsula with a 3-mile trip to the spectacular coast is what makes this property especially sought after. The village of St Martin is where you can find this charming retreat and country lanes to explore after you've finished traversing the stunning rural farmland attached to the cottage. A private patio area and large summer garden are attached, where you could share a cream tea or light up the BBQ while catching the last rays of the day.

Large stone walls and attractive windows allow light to stream into the cottage and wonderful wooden features adorn this property from the feature fireplace to the kitchen cupboards. Colourful tiling behind the kitchen cabinets, a matching wooden floor and smart simple lighting help make this the haven you deserve. Sink into comfortable seating with soft carpet beneath your feet and a glass of bubbly in hand.

This property is ideally situated for exploration, in the centre of the Lizard Peninsula. 8 miles away is the heritage town of Helston, with a town trail, a boating lake and plenty of spots to buy a traditional Cornish pasty. Throughout the region, there is a wide range of wildlife attractions including the Seal Sanctuary which is 6 miles from the property, Roskilly's Ice Cream Farm 5 miles away and 7 miles across to the Chocolate Factory & Craft Centre at Mullion. Cliffs and coves edge the coast with the closest being just a 3-mile drive away.
