Cozy Retreat Close To Falmouth, Contemporary Interior, Traditional Cottage
The master bedroom is situated at the rear of the property and is very quiet with two double-glazed modern windows over-looking the garden. The standard-sized double bed has a firm orthopedic-type mattress, and matching bedside tables and chest of draws and large mirror. Lights can be operated from bedside too. The floor is of solid oak and feels great under bare feet, even in the winter, although the house shoes provided may be more to your liking. Sorgente's twin bedroom has two standard singles with luxury mattresses, ample storage space and access around the room, and a wall-hung mirrror. As with all the rooms, the floors are in natural wood, and in this case it has been finished with bees wax, so it feels very smooth even under bare feet. With traditional box sash windows, recently restored using sound proofing and double glazing, you're sure to sleep snuggly at night. The generously sized bathroom is situated on the same floor between the two bedrooms for easy access.

This is our main home when we return to Cornwall. We now spend most of our time in the Italian Alps but return to Cornwall as much as we can. Our little boys are growing fast and the beaches in Cornwall are so much better than in Italy... really!
Alex purchased this cottage in 1999
Why Alex chose Penryn
On the main route (fast road or country lanes) between Falmouth and Truro. Close enough to Falmouth without having the bother with traffic, and easy to go further afield, the Lizard peninsula is very accessible. Eyns botanical gardens is only a walk away up the hill.
What makes this cottage unique
Ultra clean, and with a heat recovery system, both of which help us provide a place suitable for those with air-borne allergies and asthsma. Also, you'll not find many cottages in the area which have a bidet and rain shower in a luxurious bathroom.
