ABOUT US

BUDDLESTONE

Buddlestone is a spacious self-catering holiday property, set at the end of the owners’ private drive approximately ¼ mile from the village of St Buryan. Buddlestone originally formed part of the owners’ grade 11 listed traditional granite farmhouse (adjoining) and offers a peaceful setting from which to explore the many magnificent beaches and historical countryside West Cornwall has to offer. The cottage sleeps 6 with plenty of room inside and out.

 

The property comprises a large fully equipped farmhouse-style kitchen with encompasing dining area and tiled floor, utility room with laundry facilities and porch for muddy boots. A cosy living room complete with a wood burning stove nestled in a truly impressive granite inglenook fireplace, with French doors opening into a large sun/garden room overlooking the property's private garden, carpeted with daffodils in spring.

 

There is one bunk bedroom on the ground floor, with a further twin bedroom and double bedroom on the first floor. All feature large sash windows overlooking the garden and surrounding countryside. Also on the first floor is a family bathroom with bath and shower attachment over. Linen, towels and a full wood cot are provided, with a further travel cot available on request.

 

Outside you can relax in the large private garden, enclosed to provide a haven for children and dogs while you enjoy a glass on the patio or in the relaxing garden room and unwind. On cooler evenings light the wood burner nestled in a truly impressive granite inglenook fireplace and snuggle up on one of the sofas.

 

On arrival you will find wine chilling in the fridge and a traditional Cornish Cream Tea laid out for you to enjoy around the farmhouse dining table. We gladly welcome well behaved dogs (max. 2) who can enjoy the enclosed garden or local dog friendly beaches by day and stretch out in front of the fire by night.

LOCAL AREA

Located in the far west of Cornwall, the historic parish of St Buryan dates from the 6th century. An area of outstanding natural beauty, it is ideally placed to explore the many fascinating sites and beautiful coasts of West Cornwall.

 

The local village includes a postoffice, garage, pub and general store only a 10 minute walk or short drive away. While in the nearby towns of Penzance and St Ives can be found all the major supermarkets, alongside dozens of fine restaurants boutique shops.

 

Nearby beaches include the bluebell wood and craggy cove of St Loy; the famed artistic haven of Lamorna; Sennen the surfer's paradise; and the local favourites Porthgwarra, Porthcurno and Porthchapel amongst many others. Many of these locations feature trendy beach cafes - the perfect accompaniment to a good book or refreshing swim.
 

The breathtaking walk along the southern and western coastal path is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, and is the perfect way to take in the expansive sea views and historic mine shafts for which this end of Cornwall is famed. Running from St Ives right round to Mousehole, the path includes both coast and high moorland, and is dotted with the remains of Iron Age cliff-castles and ancient stone circles. Sweeping across Whitesand Bay and on to Lands End, it runs past the world-famous Minack Theatre to Treen and then Logan Rock, Penberth, and the smuggling cove of Lamorna. Another steep valley runs down from the heathland, wooded and warm with a plethora of wild flowers, before the AONB section ends at the small, picturesque fishing harbour of Mousehole with its quaint cottages, winding streets, and the fabulous Two Fore Street restaurant.


For those in search of a less vigorous holiday, the gardens of Cornwall are home to a wealth of the most exciting, rare and beautiful plants and trees in the British Isles. Trengwaignton and Trewidden are a stone's throw away, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project and many others are all within driving distance. While the 69-par 18 hole Cape Cornwall golf course is the perfect place for a game whilst viewing the only place in the England where two seas meet.

 

For a more cultured experience the Minack Theatre, cut into the Porthcurno cliff face by Rowena Cade, is a mere 3 mile drive south, while the Tate St Ives and Newlyn Art Gallery are short distances north and east respectively. St Michael's Mount, the ancestral home of the St Aubyn family, offers a glimpse into the past and is a rewarding day out for all ages.

 

For something extra special, why not take a short flight from Lands End airport to the Isles of Scilly and explore the beautiful Abbey Gardens at Tresco, and the ancient  fortifications of St Mary’s.
