The cottage is located on a quiet side street in the village close to all the action, and has its own walled sun-trap garden and is only a 10 minute stroll from the Scorff river…or you could use the 4 bicycles provided to explore the area. Completely renovated from top to bottom, with full care for the exposed wooden beams, gorgeous Chestnut wooden floors and exposed interior stone walls, the house also had a modern kitchen, a shower bathroom, a separate powder room and a generous bath-tub bathroom, all with electric radiant heating (included in your rental) There are enough beds for 6 adults with 2 separate bedrooms as well as 2 single bed alcove beds with quality mattresses and duvets. There is a washing machine on the lower garden level and drying racks for use in the sunny courtyard THE MAIN FLOOR: as you enter the street-level floor, you will find a bright and sunny open plan living room, dining room and kitchen layout. A ‘rescued’ oak table expands to easily seat 6, the windows open over the enclosed rear garden, for your private use. Comfy sofa and chairs, FREE wifi and Cd player are there for you to use. There is an updated powder room with its own hand basin on this floor as well. THE KITCHEN: With exposed wooden beams, Chestnut floor and a boutique size, the kitchen is nonetheless very well equipped: 4 burner gas stove, electric oven, full size fridge and freezer, microwave, coffeemaker and lots and lots of utensils, pots ’n pans and dining service! UPPER FLOOR: The main bedroom shows off the original stone walls, has a beautifully renovated double bed and its own skylight to let in the morning sunshine. Furnished with a chest of drawers, a wardrobe, seating and bedside tables. Across the hall on this floor is a spacious bath-tub bathroom and toilet with a hand-hold shower. Also on this level is a single bed tucked into an alcove on the landing, with its own skylight. LOWER, GARDEN FLOOR: Gorgeous fireplace bedroom with 2 single beds that can be joined to make a double. French door open onto the dual patio courtyard to catch the sun or shade! A full-size shower, hand basin and washing machine are in the bathroom on this level.

The exterior shed holds the tables and garden furniture for the garden, 4 bicycles to go exploring and a BBQ for an indulgent evening! WELCOME PACK: All our many visitors over the last 8 years have been welcomed with a starter kit of household necessities: cleaners, paper products, bathroom soaps etc. In addition, we provide a Welcome Basket of cheese and wine, baguette and tea and coffee…especially appreciated by those guests arriving later in the evening, when they can access the cottage with the keys in the lock box…by prior arrangement with our housekeeper.
