Little Pol is a gorgeous 18th century stone built luxury cottage in Cornwall. Set next to the owners house and snuggled at the end of a sheltered lane just outside the ancient stannary town of Lostwithiel, it's just five miles from the sea. Oak floors and Farrow & Ball Joa's White walls provide a background for the Heal's sofas, vintage pine dining table and hand-built kitchen. Pictures, candles and eclectic keepsakes add a dash of stylish homeliness.
Walk into the spacious kitchen with its Belfast sink and waxed oak work surfaces, hang your coats on the coat pegs beside the door and relax. The sitting room is flooded with light and has two comfy sofas basking in the toasty warmth of the wood burner so you can stretch out after a day walking the Saints Way or coastal footpaths or exploring the antique shops in Lostwithiel.
A charming antique pine dining table and painted wooden chairs nestle between the sofas and kitchen, perfect for long lunches and supper parties looking out onto the glorious cottage garden.
Little Pol has two bedrooms with an elegant mix of old and new, the main bedroom houses a comfy king-size bed and low window that looks out over a courtyard and fields. The second bedroom has a Victorian metal double bedstead, a family heirloom that has been updated with a thoroughly modern pocket sprung mattress.
Both bedrooms offer en suite facilities, one with a big walk-in shower and the other with its own bathroom, the perfect places to relax after long walks breathing in gallons of fresh air.
French doors lead out from the sitting room to the gorgeous enclosed garden, sheltered by an old Cornish hedge. Bordered by trees and shrubs this is the perfect place for a lazy summer's breakfast or to sup wine in the evening alongside the BBQ. There's even a shed in the garden with a table tennis set in for you to use!
There is parking for up to three cars either right outside the door or by the garden gate.
Pack both your Hunter wellies and your flip-flops to make the most of country vs coast, Little Pol combines luxurious style with breath taking Cornish landscape. From here it is really easy to explore all of Cornwall as it is centrally located for both the north and south coast. Fowey and the sea is five miles away, The Eden Project is 10 minutes away, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Padstow are a 20 minute drive, the Cathedral City of Truro is 30 minutes away, and the sailing town of Falmouth is a little further down with beautiful St Ives 1 hour away. There are numerous beaches on both the north and south coast all within 20 minutes drive so the perfect base to explore!
Little Pol is fully WiFi ready, so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.
This is one of our pet free cottages.
"We had an absolutely blissful stay at Little Pol. The setting was picturesque, the cottage was clean and tidy, interior was perfect. Loved all the little extras like the board games, ping pong table in the shed, the blankets, fresh flowers, vintage cider in the fridge upon arrival! Can't think of any suggestions to improve anything! Was quick and easy to book. The cottage was above and beyond our expectations. Will definitely be checking for future holidays and recommending to friends. Keep up the good work!" May 2015
