Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom Cottage in Perranuthnoe, Cornwall, England - peaceful and unspoilt location, 10 minute walk to a beautiful safe beach and the nearby village

The Old Carthouse is perfectly positioned to enjoy all that South Cornwall has to offer. You can relax on the rear terrace and gaze at a beautiful blue Cornish sea, or pack up your surfboards, bucket and spade and walk to the local beach in 10 minutes. The house is ideal for all ages and abilities as it is on a single level with an open plan and airy feel. The house is fully equipped as it is our family home away from home and we do comfortable very well. We include all towels and linen, plus there is free Wi-Fi for those that can't resist the lure of getting online. The town of Penzance is just under 3 miles away and contains everything you could possibly need. However, the house is served by a well stocked farm shop (15 min walk) and there are two cafes and a classic English pub in the village, all of which have a superb range of high quality meals and snacks. If you arrive without a car then there is a good local taxi service and a bus stop near the house where you can catch the No.2 that takes you on a spectacular ride to Penzance and beyond. For those that want to travel slightly further, we are only 8 miles from St.Ives, with its host of restaurants, pubs, beautiful beaches and the very excellent Tate Gallery.

About Kathleen Gearhart- Filmer

We are the Filmer family from London and The Old Carthouse is our home away from home. With two children aged 13 and 7, they are literally bursting with excitement every time we head to Perranuthnoe.

Kathleen Gearhart- Filmer purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Kathleen Gearhart- Filmer chose Cornwall

You only need take one look at this property and the location to absolutely fall in love it. It really offers the best of both worlds, with plenty to do within a few miles of the house and one of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall, it is truly a home for any time of the year.

With Penzance just three miles away, you can easily obtain whatever you need from the huge range of cafes, restaurants and shops. Closer to the house and within a 15 minute walk is an excellent and friendly farm shop that sells a wide range of food, with a very good stock of organic and gluten free options. Then there is the village pub in Perranuthnoe, easily reached from the house on foot and serving some of the best dishes and Cornish beers that you'll ever taste.

What makes this cottage unique

The house is located at the end of a lane which is a no through road. We have neighbours, but only a few so you can enjoy an extremely quiet and relaxed location without feeling that you are totaly removed from the world. There are numerous paths to walk along that run by the property and you can walk to the village and beach within 15 minutes.

The beach at Perranuthnoe is beautiful and unspoilt. It really is a local hangout that doesn't get taken over by hoards of people. The locals of all ages come to this spot two or three times a day, every day to surf and swim, as the beach is very safe, sandy and easily accessible.

Finally, we must mention the sunset. To sit on the terrace in our garden and watch the sun disappear behind St. Michaels Mount each day is an endless joy.

Dreamy views

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views of Mount St Michael from this beautiful home.

The house is well appointed, very clean and in a quiet location.

The owner has thought of everything needed for a self catering holiday, in fact the best we have experienced.

Fantastic property - amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We had four nights here. The location was excellent, with most of the best beaches and sights only a short drive away. The property is on one of the best sections of the southwest coast path from Marizion to Portleven. The owners had thought of everything - the house is very well stocked. We were left fresh scones with clotted cream and jam which was a nice touch. The house is decorated to a very high standard and has a lovely garden. The pub in the village served delicious food and has a Michelin Bib Gourmand. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful accommodation near lovely beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday at the Old Carthouse! The property had every comfort we needed. The furnishings were really tasteful and well chosen. Household welcome pack was great. And, the location was fantastic, close to the lovely village of Perranuthnoe with its excellent pub, quiet beach and friendly beach cafe.
