Overlooking an orchard and with birdsong in the air, The Gatehouse is a gloriously comfortable single storey cottage offering rural tranquillity with the bonus of Falmouth's beaches and marinas just a few miles away.
Totally eco!

Within the five acres of shared grounds is a solar farm which generates all the energy The Emerald needs. This award-winning development is the only truly zero carbon holiday destination in the country having been awarded Code 6 status, the highest possible grading for eco efficiency. 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

The Gatehouse has a big open plan living room, a lovely space for holiday togetherness where you can cook, eat and relax in harmony. It has a high vaulted ceiling with massive wooden beams and industrial-style lamps, big comfortable sofas and French doors opening onto a south-facing terrace overlooking the orchard. The lovely Shaker kitchen area in this luxury cottage in Cornwall has limestone flooring with under-floor heating, granite work surfaces and a big island unit complete with wine fridge. With all the kit you need for cooking plus the extras (an espresso pod machine and separate wine fridge) you'll find holiday catering a doddle. There is Smart TV with Netflix, perfect for kiddies' programmes, catch-up TV and family film nights, and an iPod dock for streaming your favourite music.


The Gatehouse has two beautifully appointed bedrooms. The master bedroom has a super-kingsize double bed with electronic independently controlled adjustable mattresses, perfect for finding that perfect sleeping position. The second bedroom has zip-and-link beds that can be made up as twins or another super-kingsize bed, so ideal for couples or two sleeping separately.


The family bathroom has under-floor heating and a luxurious double-ended claw-foot bath and the en suite shower room has a double walk-in drench-head shower.

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.


The Gatehouse has its own terrace overlooking the orchard. There are five acres of mature woodland and beautifully maintained grounds to explore as well. There is also a private hot tub in the garden for you to enjoy.


There is parking for two cars right outside the door.


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


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