This beautiful homestay, nestled in the heart of the Cornish countryside in the grounds of Tremayne House, is a lovingly restored, traditional semi-detached cottage offering a warm welcome to couples wishing to escape the everyday. Step inside and you'll find an upside-down approach, with the cosy bedroom downstairs and the living space upstairs, and country modern interiors that includes warm woods, natural colours and gorgeous, tactile furnishings. Perfectly positioned near Helford on the Lizard Peninsula, Apple Loft is the perfect base from which to explore the west of Cornwall, whether it's the epic natural scenery of the glorious coastline or the pretty villages and towns that await to be discovered.

The fabulous living space lies upstairs to make the most of the stunning vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, and with windows either side of the cottage, this is a wonderfully bright, airy space in which to relax.

With simple white walls, wonderful oak wooden floors and a flickering wood burner at its heart, this is a lovely space to unwind, with a beautiful and oh-so comfy velvet sofa to curl up together on, plus a 43" Smart TV for catching up with a box set or two or watching your favourite films.


The cleverly designed kitchen with white cabinets and marble worktop comes fully equipped with everything you could need to rustle up feasts, whether its freshly caught seafood or locally made produce from nearby Gear Farm pasty and farm shop. There's an oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, Smeg retro fridge and freezer plus a washer dyer and all the other essentials.

The super-romantic dining table and chairs lies clustered by the wood burner, for intimate meals à deux or head outside to the courtyard to eat on warmer days.


Situated on the ground floor, the delightful bedroom boasts an Enchanted House king size bed, swathed in Cologne & Cotton bedding, sumptuous throws and Oka cushions to ensure a blissful nights' sleep and long, lazy lie ins. In addition, there's a chest of drawers and hanging space, plus step through the front door and you're in the pretty courtyard garden, perfect for morning coffee and breakfast.


Situated en suite to the bedroom, there's a large walk-in shower with rainfall head and separate handheld shower. A heated rail ensures towels are always kept warm and fluffy.
