Property code: OC-CARTHE

Escape to this exquisite hideaway at Newbridge in West Cornwall and have a magical stay with your loved one or a good friend. Sleeping just two guests, the one-bedroom, dog-friendly retreat is 3 miles from Penzance and well positioned for days out on the beach and long country and coastal walks. With a pretty courtyard garden for summer relaxation and outside dining and a wood burner for cosy autumn and winter nights in together, it is an enchanting place to stay all year round.

Let yourselves into the stone hideaway, leaving your walking boots in the porch and then making your way on into the lounge/kitchen. Stoke up the wood burner in here on chilly days and find your favourite programme on TV to unwind in front of for a spell. Make a cup of tea to enjoy at the breakfast bar or prepare tasty homecooked meals through in the well-equipped kitchen. The conservatory/diner is a couple of steps up and is a fabulous place to sit down to eat together and look out over the courtyard garden. When you are ready to lay your head for the night, head upstairs to find the super-king-size bedroom, with beds that can also be arranged as singles by prior arrangement. The shower room is also up here. Spill out into the garden on sunny days to enjoy lunch or a glass out wine out in the Cornish sunshine.

Lace up your walking boots and venture out on hikes through the surrounding countryside and moorland. Head to the pretty cove at Porth Nanven, 5 miles away, to paddle in the sea and relax on the sand. Sennen Beach, 8 miles away, is a great place for swimming, surfing and family days out. Have an afternoon out to the Trewidden Garden, 3 miles away.

Carthew Mill Cottage was everything we had hoped it would be. Unused to an open plan layout we really enjoyed being together and cooking with the well equipped kitchen area, including the clean cooker. Having our three dogs with us was a lovely opportunity and there was plenty of room for them by the great wood burning stove after long country/beacRead moreh walks. The area is great for both and there are beautiful gardens to visit. The bright conservatory onto the safe, enclosed garden was a real bonus and having the garden gate, meant dogs could be dried off easily outside before coming into the conservatory first. They were truly well catered for with bedding, bowls, towels and even treats! The garden gate led straight out to a green lane, perfect for exercising the dogs too. The welcome pack for the humans was equally generous - milk, butter, sausages, bread, eggs, croissants and beautiful flowers. Upstairs, the bedding was more hotel like than cottage - extremely comfortable bed with sumptuous, beautify laundered bedding and soft, fluffy towels. There were even spares waiting in the airing cupboard should they be needed. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable. Hide
