    “We've been coming to Cornwall for ...”
    We've been coming to Cornwall for years and this will go down as one of our favourite rentals. The cottage was spotless, spacious, well equipped, and had everything we needed for a comfy and cosy stay. John and Lisa gave us a warm welcome and our dog made himself at home very quickly and enjoyed exploring the area around the farm. We were after peace and quiet and great places to walk the dog and we got it in bucket loads. After a day of walking there was plenty of hot water and a log burner ...

The property

Mevagissey 1.8 miles.

Located in a truly idyllic setting on the owner’s farm amongst 94 acres of beautiful wild flower pasture meadows and ancient woodlands, Galowras Cottage offers total peace and seclusion yet is less than two miles from the bustling fishing village of Mevagissey.

Driving down the private unmade lane to the cottage you will realise you are somewhere special the moment you arrive with the amazing far reaching views directly in front of you.

As you enter the cottage take a look behind you and virtually all the land you can see is yours to explore for the duration of your holiday.

With individual rooms exuding character throughout this splendid barn conversion offers a well-equipped kitchen, an elegant dining room and a really comfortable and cosy sitting room complete with a woodburner and supply of logs for those cooler evenings and winter breaks.

There are three bedrooms all with beautiful countryside views, a double and two twins on the first floor and the bathroom completes the accommodation offering a chance for an indulgent soak at the end of a busy day.

This special cottage truly is a paradise for walkers, birdwatchers and nature lovers and in the evening and early morning you have the chance to watch barn owls hunting, whilst a web cam direct to the TV allows you to see the owls nesting.

The owners encourage anyone staying in the cottage to just open the doors and explore the farm and if the children are interested they are welcome to help feed the animals and collect fresh eggs.

Whilst it would be easy to spend so much time on the farm with so many areas for picnics offering such wonderful views, if you fancy a short stroll to the beach through the ancient oak woods within 30 mins you will be at the small sheltered cove of Portmellon where you can enjoy refreshment at the waterside pub, The Rising Sun.

With Mevagissey so close and the Lost Gardens of Heligan a walk across fields or a 5 minute drive there will always be plenty to see and do here.

All in all a very special cottage that will ensure a truly memorable holiday to be enjoyed and appreciated all year round.
