    “Beautiful country and coastline.”
    Beautiful country and coastline. Fascinating archaeology. The cottage was warm and welcoming, absolutely delightful and a perfect hideaway for a relaxing break.

The property

Tucked away off the beaten track in a small hamlet of granite stone cottages, Butterfly Cottage offers a chance to escape from the pressure of every day and to enjoy a true cottage experience.

This 16th Century cottage has a welcoming living room with wood burning stove and an open doorway leading to the spacious Shaker style modern kitchen with integral appliances.

The first floor has two bedrooms, one double and one twin and the family bathroom with bath and shower over.

Outside are gardens to the front and rear and across the lane, is a larger expanse of garden that takes in the far reaching views.

A summer house with wicker sofas gives additional seating and is a great spot for a picnic or barbecue.

Bikes and beach gear can be stored in the useful garage and there is plenty of parking.With easy access to the West Cornwall coastline, the old market town of Penzance with many restaurants and bars, antique and craft shops, is just a short drive away whilst the breathtaking sunsets from Lands End a simple drive across the awe-inspiring moors.

With many white sandy beaches and coves within easy reach and archaeological relics, West Penwith has much on offer.

This traditional character cottage is ideal for families, groups of friends or couples seeking a peaceful holiday in a rural location.

It will be ideal at any time of the year because of the wood burning stove in the living room and the range cooker in the kitchen - pets will love to cosy up in front of either!

About the location


St Ives 8 miles.

One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas. The spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves, winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Scilly Isles. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
