Quirky luxury chalet-style cottage, beautiful sea views across a wooded valley



Updated: 14-Oct-2016
Sleeps 2. 1 Bedroom. 1 Bathroom.


Nanteague is a quirky but luxury chalet-style cottage with beautiful sea views across a wooded valley to Falmouth Bay.

The front door leads into an open-plan sitting and dining area with adjacent kitchen and is floor tiled throughout.

The lounge area has a two-seat sofa, wicker armchair, a wall-mounted flame effect electric fire, 32” flat screen HD TV with Sky+ HD (including Sky Sports, Sky Movies, Catch-up TV, & Sky Movies on Demand), DVD player, telephone, and free WiFi internet.

The kitchen is well equipped with quality 1½ bowl ceramic sink, fridge with small freezer compartment, washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, electric double oven/grill, with 4-ring hob and extractor.

Also downstairs is a large fully tiled bathroom that has a large double shower cubicle with powerful mixer shower, corner bath, WC, heated towel rail, and washbasin with shaver point and heated mirror.

Upstairs is the large eaves bedroom has limited headroom but has a feature Velux cabrio balcony window which opens out giving the impression of being on a balcony yet still in the room that enjoys uninterrupted views across the wooded valley to the sea. There is a 6' superking-size pocket sprung mattress bed with choice of summer or winter weight duvets, or single duvets if preferred, extra blanket and pillows, bathrobes, and hair dryer. Built-in wardrobe and shelving, wicker armchair, 23” Freeview flat screen TV, iPod dock, and cordless telephone.

Outside there are 2 small private lawn areas with table, chairs, patio umbrella, 2 reclining chairs, again with views down the valley and out across the bay. Guests also have the use of a half-acre meadow garden including bench seats and large pond. Nanteague has its own dedicated parking area within the courtyard.

Nanteague is one of four converted farm buildings within a courtyard setting. Two of these properties are also holiday cottages (Stable Cottage property no. 1841315, and Pond Cottage property no. 1839724, for couples only). The owners live in the other barn so are available to give advice and help at most times (including ferrying guests to the start of a one-way walk).

Due to a step up through a narrow front door and narrow staircase upstairs, this cottage is not suitable for guests with wheelchairs or restricted mobility.

Rental includes bedlinen, towels, electricity, WiFi, free anytime telephone calls to normal landlines in the UK and 25 countries worldwide, and underfloor central heating for out-of-season lets.

Regret no children or dogs. Property is STRICTLY non-smoking.

Within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Nanteague at Tregaminion is located between St Keverne and Porthallow Cove amongst farmland and woods. A rich variety of wildlife may be seen including barn owls, buzzards, woodpeckers and countless other birds, badgers and foxes and the resident Muscovy duck and occasional visiting Mallards and Moorhens! We provide binoculars in the property. On clear nights the lack of street lighting allows breathtaking views of the night-sky.

The footpath to Porthallow beach runs along the perimeter of the property through the woods and fields and takes about 10 minutes. In the other direction the path will leads to St Keverne - taking about 25 minutes. The South West Coast Path is a 5-minute walk away (Porthallow is the halfway point of the 630 mile long South West Coast Path).

Cornwall's unique characteristics have evolved from its remote location as the most southwesterly county in Great Britain and being almost surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Famous for its areas of outstanding natural beauty: stunning coastline,wildlife, coastal footpaths, beaches, quaint fishing harbours,wooded valleys and creeks. Its very mild climate seldom getting too hot or cold has allowed a wealth of spectacular gardens to thrive.

Drop in at the Fat Apples Cafe just up the hill for teas, coffees, hot snacks, sandwiches, and ice creams. Nearby is the Porthkerris Dive Centre providing excellent diving on numerous wrecks and the Manacle reef, and basking shark spotting boat trips (in season) .
