Cedar is a semi-detached super insulated wood-clad eco house tucked away in a tranquil rural setting. Just five miles from Falmouth's beaches and marinas, this is a wonderful location for kicking back and relaxing. Floor to ceiling windows look out over a private deck and bubbling hot tub to graceful eucalyptus trees beyond.


Totally eco!

Cedar is part of The Emerald, an award-winning development which is the only truly zero carbon holiday destination in the country having been awarded Code 6 status, the highest possible grading for eco efficiency. Within the five acres of shared grounds is a solar farm which generates all the energy The Emerald needs and more. There is also a useful Tesla charging point for electric cars at The Emerald (please bring your own adaptor for other makes). The owners politely ask that you state on arrival if you plan to take advantage of this service and to pay them via cash or bank transfer before departure.


Living and eating

This is a wonderfully spacious place to be, with a deep corner sofa set before big double doors which open out wide to the room-sized deck. 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 fresh morning coffee and a wine fridge to keep the bubbly perfectly chilled. A fantastic spot for a luxury romantic break.


Sleeping

Cedar's large bedroom has a beautiful carved wooden bedstead, super-king size for added comfort. After an undisturbed night's sleep you can enjoy a long, relaxing soak in the hot tub right outside the door...or perhaps take a stroll through the grounds to the pool house and gym for some light exercise and a leisurely swim.


Bathing

The en suite bathroom has warm and toasty under-floor heating, a walk-in drench-head shower and a 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.


Garden

Cedar 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.


Parking

There is parking for two cars either right outside the door or by the garden gate.


WiFi

Cedar has WiFi so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.


Dogs

Two dogs are very welcome. We charge £35 per dog per week or short break.


Availability

Cedar is semi-detached from Fern and they are mirror images of each other, so if Cedar is booked for the dates you require just look at Fern on the website to see if it is free.
