Close to the coast, Parula is a smart bolt-hole for two in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Cornwall’s far west.
It sits amid open fields and atmospheric moorlands in the remote hamlet setting of Kelynack, one mile from the bustling town of St Just.
Walkers, romantics, beachcombers, bird watchers, artists, and city escapees will love it here!
Access to the rugged West Penwith coastline, which is a string of beautiful bays and coves, is a 10 minute walk.
Step out the front door and follow the lane down to where it meets the south west coast path and Nanquidno Cove, which is a popular spot for bird watching, surfing and spectacular sunsets.
For epic views, follow the path west along tall granite cliffs to Gwenver Beach, Sennen Cove and Land’s End or head east towards Cape Cornwall and St Just where you will find good pubs, cafes and delicatessens as well as several art galleries, including Kurt Jackson's Jackson Foundation.
Continue a little farther to explore the iconic engine houses at Botallack where the Poldark mine scenes were filmed.
Follow the scenic coast road to St Ives for world-class beaches and restaurants plus a tempting array of trendy boutique shops and arty galleries, including the Tate.
The castle topped island of St Michael’s Mount and The Minack, an outdoor theatre carved into the cliff face, are also a must for the itinerary.
Situated beside the owners home but none the less, private, modern and pristine, Parula is a comfortable bungalow to return to.
Sit out on the sheltered patio with a glass of red at hand, fire up the barbecue and admire rural views with only the birdsong and the occasional hum of a Skybus aircraft, operating to and from the Isles of Scilly from the adjacent Aerodrome, to break the silence.
Newly refurbished, the interior is arranged on one level.
All mod cons are provided, from a dishwasher to a washer drier, coffee machine and food processor.
The sitting room has plump sofas, good books/games, a dining table and a door to the private patio.
You will find a spacious bedroom with a comfortable bed dressed in cotton bed linens and ample storage.
The sparkling shower room includes thick fluffy towels and a shower that is large enough for two.
