Recently renovated, the Owl at Ashen Cross offers 2 bedrooms, a master bedroom with King-size bed and a good sized Twin bedroom; bathroom with bath and shower; open kitchen, dining and living space, with a wood-burning stove. Outside the Owl provides private space with a modern Weber BBQ, table and chairs – beyond this, we have over 3 acres of garden for you to explore, including the private fishing lake with a summerhouse and decking. Your holiday time is precious, talk to us and let us help you make the very most of it. Both cottages at Ashen Cross welcome dogs with well-behaved owners, there is an additional £20 charge per dog – please talk to us about this when you book. The Owl is situated in the small hamlet of Ashen Cross just half a mile from the village of Pelynt (with convenience stores, post office, quirky tea room and a thriving village pub) and we are less than 2 miles from the stunning South Coast of Cornwall. The beautiful beach at Talland Bay and the quintessential fishing village of Polperro are just a 40 minute walk, with the bustling seaside town of Looe less than 3 miles away - making this the perfect location from which to explore and enjoy this ever popular part of Cornwall. The Monkey Sanctuary (7.5 miles), the thriving commercial seaport and designated area of outstanding beauty of Fowey (just over 7 miles using the Bodinnick ferry crossing), The Eden Project (18 miles), and a host of other activities and attractions are all within easy reach. But it is the semi-rural setting which makes this holiday destination extra special. As well as having secluded outdoor space, guests are able to relax and recharge in over 3 acres of land which includes two beautiful fresh water lakes. A strategically placed Summer House provides the perfect place to lose yourself in the wild and wonderful world of the natural inhabitants here. The large lake is well stocked with fish and when you stand on the decking by the summer house the carp, roach, trench and orf, along with our resident ducks Doris and Declan, will all come over to take a look at you. Guests angling for a catch will find the perfect spot to tickle their fisherman's tales - previous guests report they've had some of their best ever fishing days down here. Dogs with energetic owners will find plenty of space to run up on the field. The Owl is one of only two holiday cottages on offer here, enjoying complete privacy from each other and the adjacent Barn where the owners live. The cottages have been welcoming guests for over 15 years, and new owners Geoff and Tracy Tyrrell are keen to make the very most of what they have to offer; improvements are being made all the time - the welcome hamper which includes home-baked scones and bread, as well as locally sourced clotted cream, beer and cider, and a generous helping of milk, butter, jam, and other basics is winning everyone's seal of approval. Our guests also enjoy mid-week fresh towels. Access to The Owl is via a stone, railed, staircase leading up from the ample car parking offered in the courtyard. Originally a grain store, the property was converted in 1997 and offers spacious, open plan living, kitchen, dining space. There is a large master bedroom and a good size twin bedroom (with a wall mounted flat screen TV). The bathroom offers shower over bath. The cottage is furnished to ensure home-from-home comfort, with a flat screen TV, a modern wood-burning stove and a generous selection of books, DVDs and games to help you relax and enjoy your stay. The kitchen has everything you would expect to find in a modern kitchen with additional luxuries like the Nespresso coffee machine and a dish washer. The twin bedroom has a wall mounted flat screen TV. The private garden is accessed by French doors leading out from the living area. A range of seating means you can always find a perfect spot to sit to soak up the day or night. We've added a Weber BBQ and provide a pack of coals to get you all fired up. Whilst being fully respectful of your privacy, living on-site means we're always here if you need us. More
