Carharrack, Cornwall Cottages
Originally a tinner's simple detached dwelling, Kitts Cottage has been sympathetically modernised to provide a comfortable and attractive place to relax and enjoy the peace and privacy it affords. The detached property lies hidden away up a bridlepath with tremendous, far-reaching views towards both the North and South Cornish coastlines. The village of Carharrack (shop and PO) is 1 mile away.
Small entrance lobby.
Sitting/dining room with woodburning stove in a granite fireplace.
Low doorway to light, modern fitted kitchen.
Steep open tread stairs lead from sitting room into a very large double bedroom with 4ft 6 bed and double height boarded ceiling and exposed stonework at either end; long views on either side. Ample space for visitors' own cot and/or the extra folding bed.
Lawned garden area at the front and a gravelled patio area at the rear, surrounded by a stone wall and small gate to the frount.. Further garden area with barbecue at one end of the cottage.
Wifi available. Access is via a 250m rough track. Pets welcome (livestock in adjacent fields).
Kitts Cottage is situated in a quiet location approx 5 miles from the sea - very much a Cornish retreat for a couple. The cottage is conveniently placed for visiting the many attractions in this part of Cornwall including the superb sandy/surfing beaches at Porthtowan and Portreath on the north coast, the cliff walks of the Lizard Peninsula. The creeks of the Falmouth Estuary and the Helford River Passage with their sub-tropical gardens (Trebah, Trelissick and The Lost Gardens of Heligan) are also within easy reach making this a great location for enjoying the fresh air and the rugged isolation of this attractive part of Cornwall.
For those looking for some retail therapy, there is plenty of good shopping in the cathedral city of Truro (6 miles) where there are also some good restaurants too. Slightly further afield is the famous St Ives with its laid-back artist community and superb beaches. What a great location!
"amazing but heating needs to be addressed! Without spending an additional £80+ we would have been cold as the heaters supplied weren’t sufficient for December!"Rumsey
"We arrived in the dark- excited to see Kitts Cottage in all her glory on the hill. Woke up to an amazing, beautiful cottage with lovely views across the hills. Great walks - excellent for the dog. Although the weather was wet and cold we all enjoyed sitting around the fire, playing games, watching TV, eating and drinking. Bed very comfy, house warm and kitchen modern, clean and big! We would love to come back again and see Kitts Cottage in the summer. Great job Mark and Hayley on cleanliness and homeliness. Very cosy!"The Tighe family
"Just returned from a week at this lovely cottage with our small dog. Beautiful peaceful location with breathtaking views. With its location it is simple to visit most of this area of Cornwall on both sides of the coast. Met lots of friendly locals and found nearly everywhere very welcoming. Great local walks and great to explore hidden trails and paths. Only downside for me was the bridle path leading up to the cottage which is in a poor state and can only be passed at a snail's pace. The other downside for me was that due to visiting at half term most places we went were impossible to get to or stay at. Not anyone's fault except our own for picking this week and I would love to visit again at a different time of year."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-06-03
