With St Ives and Porthleven just a few miles away in either direction, this romantic luxury self-catering cottage in Cornwall is a perfect escape for those seeking to explore whilst also offering somewhere peaceful and relaxing to return to at the end of the day.
Living

Walk up the steps past the very pretty Magnolia tree and you'll find a warm welcome through the front door. This lovingly converted 15th century Grade II-listed granite barn is beautifully restored with whitewashed granite stone walls and furnishings in soft greens and creams. The layout is reversed so the living area is upstairs with gorgeous warm wooden floors, a big sofa ideally placed near the wood burner (perfect for snuggling up on a winter night), pouf, high backed chair and a good sized television for cosy film nights.

Eating

You'll find the petite yet perfect kitchen upstairs too - with ceramic hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge-freezer and dishwasher, there's all you need to put together a delicious meal (maybe some excellent seafood, freshly caught and bought straight off the boat). There's a dainty table pour deux in the living area for romantic meals. Or meander outside on warmer days and take your meals al fresco in your own private courtyard.

Sleeping

The quiet and spacious bedroom is on the ground floor, king-sized bed bedecked with luscious linens, throws and cushions. French windows lead outside - perfect for a deep breath of super-fresh morning air. Equipped with a television for those mornings when you just can't get up, the room also boasts a beautiful antique armchair upholstered with an Mark Hearld design.

Bathing

The en suite has a bath with shower, luxurious towels and toiletries - perfect for a soak after a day of exploring, or just as a pick-me-up on balmy evenings.

Facilities

There is a washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, TV, DVD player, CD player and BBQ.

Courtyard Garden

You have your own private sunny courtyard plus two and a half acres of very pretty shared gardens - perfect for taking a leisurely breakfast or maybe a G&T or two on a summer's evening (we recommend Curio Gin, produced locally in Mullion - yum). With tucked away sitting areas and a plethora of rolling countryside views, you'll easily find a quiet spot to read a book (or snooze) for an hour or two. Don't be surprised to find the odd wandering hen, cat or dog come across your path - it's all part of the countryside charm!

Parking

There is parking for a car close to the cottage.

WiFi

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

Dogs

One well-behaved dog is welcome. We charge £30 per dog per week or short break. Please note the courtyard isn't enclosed and dogs are to be on a lead at all times whilst in the grounds and gardens.

Baby friendly

Gilliflower accepts babes-in-arms, please contact us if you would like to add a baby to your booking.

Reviews

"Lovely cottage, great location. We have visited the area several times and never get tired of St Ives bay and surrounding area. Recommend a swim at the Lido pool in Penzance!" July 2017

"Such a beautiful place! This is our second visit this year! Say no more! Cannot fault anything apart from the weather, but still stunning in the rain. We will be back thank you Dawn." June 2017

"A beautiful place to spend our Honeymoon and Christmas celebrations! A perfect location to explore lots of lovely places. We would definitely recommend and book again to return, this was a holiday we will never forget!" - December 2016

"We found the cottage delightful and a great location to explore the whole of the South-West end of Cornwall (Poldark country). Lots more to see, so a re-visit is certainly on the agenda!" - October 2016
