The Little Cider House
5.5 miles N of Fowey
Sleeps 5 | dog friendly
Cabin with hot tub in Cornwall: Set in the most idyllic rural spot, The Little Cider House ticks all the boxes and more - from a bubbling hot tub and a swaying hammock to an equally gorgeous and functional interior - you really will want for nothing here.
Simply perfect in every way, The Little Cider House has been lovingly hand-crafted to combine comfort, style and quality, all wrapped up in the most idyllic of hideaways. Whether you are looking for a family getaway or romantic retreat, your search ends here - even the dog is welcome to join you.
Nestled in magnificent countryside in the beautiful Fowey Valley, this is 'the' spot to escape from modern life and reconnect with one another. You don't even have to get back in the car if you don't want to - there are acres of wildflower meadows, pastures, woodland tracks and even a babbling brook that the friendly yet discreet owners are happy for you to explore. You will no doubt spend a lot of time al fresco (who could blame you!) - whether that's relaxing in the hammock, soaking in the hot tub, toasting marshmallows on the fire-pit, cooking up a storm on the barbecue, having a snooze in the sun or simply dining in the stunning setting, surrounded by an abundance of bird and wildlife - you will be well and truly spoilt for choice.
Inside is just as special as outside here - a big statement indeed but very true! The super stylish interior includes a spacious open plan living area, complete with dining area and kitchen equipped with a gas hob, gas oven (with electric grill), fridge, kettle, toaster and even a dishwasher! The elegant king-size bed is tucked away behind a partial partition and the brilliant triple bunk-bed room is at the other end of the cabin - the kids will love it! - the beds (one is 2'6'' in size and the other two are 3'') cleverly criss-cross over each other and there is a door for privacy. The modern shower-room is next door to the bunk bedroom and, in true luxury glamping style, includes a drench head shower, proper flushing loo and wash-basin. For the cooler months, both under-floor heating and a toasty wood-burner are on-hand, ensuring cosiness whatever the weather.
Out and About
If you can bear to tear yourselves away, there is so much to see and do nearby. For starters, the riverside town of Lostwithiel - known as the antiques capital of Cornwall - is less than a mile away, with its historic 12th Century castle ruins, selection of independent shops, pubs, places to eat and drink, regular farmers market and a calendar of events. If you're after somewhere for a spot of lunch, head to nearby Duchy Nursery, offering delicious food and stunning views of the castle as well as an excellent choice of plants (why not purchase one as a souvenir!).
The infamous Eden Project is within easy reach, as are The Lost Gardens of Heligan and National Trust owned Lanhydrock, with its remarkable house and extensive parkland, wooded walks and cycle trails. There are also fabulous cycling opportunities nearby at Cardinham Woods and the Camel Trail too, which you can pick up from Bodmin and venture to picture-perfect Padstow in one direction or the rugged moors in the other.
Open plan living-room with kitchen, dining and bedroom areas. Gas hob, gas oven (with electric grill), dishwasher, fridge (with ice-box), wood-burner, kettle and toaster and king-size double bed (5').
Bedroom 2 with triple bunk-beds (2 3' single beds and 1 2'6" single bed - recommended for children only). Wet-room with shower, WC and wash basin.
