Ludgvan, Cornwall Cottages
The Cabin is tucked away behind high gates and hedges with its own 1 acre plot within the owner's large and fascinating 4 acre garden,. It is a haven of tranquillity - an ideal place to relax and unwind. It is very private, being sited away from the owner's property and the other two properties at this location and has its own access driveway and parking.
The owner, who is a local artist, generously extends to guests the use of her superb garden below the property , which contains many rare and exotic plants from around the world. An extensive network of paths and tracks provide the ideal opportunity for a quiet reflective walk, pausing a while to admire the view while for the more energetic they are perfect as a 'wild running' track! The garden is a haven for wildlife and attracts badgers and foxes as well as an array of birds, butterflies and moths.
The Cabin is of Finnish design, with a well planned interior all at ground level.

The Cabin is a detached property situated midway between Penzance and St. Ives, just above Mounts Bay and within a few minutes' drive of the dramatic coastline which featured in the popular television series Poldark. Approx. 5 minutes' drive away, Marazion has a fine sandy beach where there is access, via a cobbled stone causeway at low tide or by boat at high tide, to St Michael's Mount (National Trust) with its medieval castle and sub-tropical gardens.
This part of Cornwall is famed for its wild and beautiful coastline and its magnificent beaches with many interesting places to visit - Lands End, Cape Cornwall, Sennen Cove as well as St Ives, famous for its artists' community and offering several 'Blue Flag' beaches. There are numerous country walks to enjoy including St Michael's Way, the former route for pilgrims on their way from Lelant to St Michael's Mount.
"Fantastic cabin, very peaceful and quiet with all kinds of wildlife in the garden. Lovely and friendly owner. Would definitely recommend."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-07-30
"We had a fantastic stay at the cabin in June. It was a perfect base to explore the area but set in such lovely surroundings, we spent quite a bit of time relaxing on the veranda. Lots of places to recommend - Porthcurno, Mousehole, Minack theatre, St Ives...but also Sue's tour of her fantastic tropical garden is a must! Great place!"Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-07-21
"My partner and I have stayed in the Little Cabin on numerous occasions over the last 10 years or so, the last being in June 2016 for a fortnight. I can still remember the first time I opened the gates into the drive and went "Oh wow. This is amazing!" There were rabbits everywhere. Heaven for an animal lover! The Little Cabin didn't disappoint either. Perfect for a couple. Lovely to open the doors onto the decking and be at one with nature. Or lovely to cosy up in if the weather isn't great. Very comfortable and rather nice to have a small rabbit peeping in to the bedroom, first thing in a morning, from the woodland! The ideal chill out and get away from it all place. Can't recommend it highly enough."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-07-02
