Sleeps 5 people dogs allowed
Cabin with hot tub in Cornwall: Oh my, what a special place this is! If Enid Blyton could have imagined a perfect setting for 'Five go glamping in Cornwall', I am sure she would have created this idyllic rural paradise.
Set amidst glorious countryside, in the breath-taking Fowey Valley, this gorgeous wooden cabin has been perfectly crafted for a couple or family of five and of course any little Timmy (the dog) you want to bring along - OK so technically that's six but who's counting!
Blissfully quiet, this is the perfect spot to chill out, unwind and reconnect with the world around you. Discover a bounty of bird and wildlife whilst lazing on the loungers, soaking in the hot tub, or snoozing in the hammocks - some might even come close to say hello - or head off on foot to and create your own adventures as you explore the delightful five acres of wildflower meadows, pastures, woodland tracks and even a babbling brook. Dining al fresco is a must and what a choice you have. Stay close to base camp for a home-cooked meal or fire up the BBQ with the obligatory campfire songs around the fire-pit or pack up a picnic and find your own special spot to enjoy lashings of ginger beer and potted meat sandwiches of course!
The Little Cider House is as perfect on the inside as it is on the outside. Lovingly crafted by the welcoming yet discreet owners, who have ensured that you will have the most comfortable of stays. The stylish interior is befitting of any interior magazine with fashionable tones, striking wallpaper and fabulous rope lights. The super kitchen has a two-ring hob, oven, fridge and even a dishwasher - well this is glamping after all - and a dining-area should you wish to dine inside. There's a proper king-size bed for the grown- ups with a beautiful bedstead that is partly partitioned from the living area. At the other end of the cabin is the 'scrumptious' bunk-bedded room (please note one bunk is 2'6" and the others 3'), this room is charming and will delight the younger members of the party with beds that criss-cross each other - night times will be an adventure in their own right but parents do not worry it does have a door to provide some privacy! With an equally special shower-room complete with drench head shower, under-floor heating and a toasty wood-burner to ensure you are warm and cosy whatever the weather, The Little Cider House is here to welcome you all year round.
Out and About
You would be forgiven for not wanting to leave this magical setting, but this is an unmissable opportunity to have further adventures in this very special part of Cornwall. The riverside town of Lostwithiel, with its iconic 12th Century castle ruins (English Heritage) - of course there's a castle, is less than a mile away. Known as the antiques capital of Cornwall, the town is utterly charming with its selection of independent shops, pubs, places to eat and drink, regular farmers market and a calendar of events. And talking of great places to eat, the nearby Duchy Nursery not only has an excellent choice of plants and a gorgeous shop but the most fantastic cafe - with stunning views of the castle, so any visit can be justified as educational as well as indulgent!
If gardens are on the agenda, the world renowned Eden project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are top the list along with Lanhydrock (National Trust) with its vast parkland, wooded walks and historic house. For cycling enthusiasts, Lanhydrock also has a great network of cycling trails (bikes can be hired) as does Cardinham Woods, or in Bodmin you can join the family friendly Camel Trail and head off to the moors in one direction or Padstow on the north coast in the other.
Talking of the coast, the rural setting of The Little Cider House belies the fact that the beautiful south coast is so very close with sheltered bays and coves, stylish sailing ports and wooded river estuaries. For a day at the seaside head off to Polkerris and Readymoney Cove or marvel at the classic tall ships at Charlestown harbour. Trendy Fowey combines its nautical appeal with chic cafes, artisan shops, cool bars and traditional Cornish pubs and I am sure Enid would approve of you taking to the water and kayaking up the estuary to the pretty village of Lerryn.
So what are you waiting for, pack your bag and treat yourself to a well-deserved break at The Little Cider House - you are in for an adventure.
Open plan living-room with kitchen, dining and bedroom areas. Gas hob, gas oven (with electric grill), dishwasher, fridge (with ice-box), wood-burner, kettle and toaster and king-size double bed (5').
Bedroom 2 with triple bunk-beds (2 3' single beds and 1 2'6" single bed - recommended for children only). Wet-room with shower, WC and wash basin.
