Fern is a semi-detached hi-spec, super-insulated cedar-clad eco house tucked into a wonderfully tranquil countryside location just five miles Falmouth. Oak floors and white walls reflect light from the floor to ceiling windows that look out over the private deck and bubbling hot tub to the slender trees beyond - a very lovely luxury retreat in Cornwall.
Living and eating
The big open plan living room at this homestay is a wonderfully relaxing place to be, with a deep corner sofa set before French doors which can be fully opened out for seamless indoor/outdoor living when the sun shines down. There is a Smart TV with Netflix, an iPod dock to stream your music and unlimited WiFi. The fully equipped kitchen has every appliance you need, including an espresso machine for your morning wake up coffee and a wine fridge to keep the bubbly perfectly chilled.
Fern's large bedroom has a beautiful carved Provencal-style bed, super-king size for added luxury. After a blissfully comfortable night's sleep you can enjoy breakfast in bed while contemplating the day and trying to decide between a morning dip in the hot tub right outside the door or a stroll to the pool house and gym for some light exercise and a refreshing swim...the choice is yours at this luxury retreat in Cornwall.
The en suite bathroom has toasty warm under-floor heating, a walk-in drench-head shower and an oval free-standing double-ended bath.
Indoor swimming pool and gym
There is a swimming pool and gym (available at all times) and an all weather outdoor tennis court and children's play area. These easily accessible facilities are shared with the other four eco houses that form The Emerald, the only award-winning truly zero carbon holiday destination in the country.
Fern has a big glass-sided deck with its own private hot tub. This is set low into the deck outside the bedroom, with underwater lighting for chilled-out night time dips. There are five acres of mature woodland and beautifully maintained grounds to explore as well.
There is parking for two cars either right outside the door or by the garden gate.
Fern is fully WiFi ready so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.
Two dogs are very welcome. We charge £30 per dog per week or short break.
Fern is semi-detached from Cedar and they are mirror images of each other, so if Fern is booked for the week(s) you require please give us a call on 01872 553491 to see if Cedar is free.
