General

Nestled down a long winding country lane is where you will find this hidden haven. The Bird Box is perfectly designed for a romantic retreat to natures paradise. Settled in a private Eden full of spectacular flora that blooms from Spring onwards, the rambling garden provides the most peaceful utopia for a relaxing getaway. As soon as you arrive you really will feel a whole world away from reality.

Step inside your heavenly hideaway and fall in love with the simplistic, yet chic Scandinavian inspired interiors. There's an earthy charm to this rural cabin that will capture your heart from the moment you arrive. The open plan space is light and airy as the cabin has plenty of large windows that allow the natural light to flow through effortlessly. The cosy double bed not only has a stargazing skylight, but there's also a full-length window at the end of the bed giving you the most delightful view of flowing landscape surrounding your spectacular hideaway. You really will feel at one with nature while staying here. To the right of the bed, there's the sweetest wood-burner that you've ever of set eyes upon. The warmth from the fire creates a certain snugness in the air and is just idyllic for keeping cosy during the cooler months. The stylish kitchen is flawlessly equipped with a small oven and double ring gas hob, perfect for preparing delicious dinners and indulgent breakfasts. Step outside The Bird Box and you'll see your private shower room just a few footsteps away. This separate off-grid cabin, has a shower, sink and compost toilet.

The outdoor space is just as lovely as the interiors of this Unique hideaway. There's so much unspoilt nature to be enjoyed with plenty of beautiful places to sit and watch the world go by. Such as the dreamy hammock, idyllic for reading that book that's been sat on your shelf for a while. However, our favourite feature has to be the blissful alfresco bathtub. How does this sound… after a day of adventures, return to your humble abode, turn the tap, pour yourself a glass of your favourite and sink into the bubbles? And there's even pretty festoon lighting around this magical area that creates the most enchanting setting. For those who love outdoor dining you are in for a treat, as there's a barbecue for you to use as well as a rustic fire pit area, ideal for toasting marshmallows under the starlit sky. We promise you, glamping in the wild never looked to good!

So, what gave this quirky cabin its name? The Bird Box is nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where the dawn chorus is quite simply breath-taking. On a golden spring morning you will be greeted by the cheerful tune of an abundance of songbirds. Woodpeckers, cuckoos, swallows, robins, nuthatch and blackbirds (who of course sing the prettiest tune) are just a few bird species that share your serene sanctuary.

The Bird Box is a fantastic hideaway to visit throughout the year with its cosy interiors and ever-changing surroundings. From spring, the garden turns to a mosaic of pastel blooms with daffodils and bluebells making their way above ground and later in the year the hydrangeas burst out of bud. Willow trees encircle the area as well as the picturesque kiwi tree that sits just behind the bathtub. This really is the most tranquil dreamland you could ever wish to whisk your loved one away too.

Out and About

Nestled near rugged Bodmin Moor in the north of Cornwall, The Bird Box is perfectly positioned for exploring both the north and south coast, as well as many majestic inland areas. Just a 2-mile walk away in the local village of St Neot is where you will find a traditional country pub called The London Inn. The perfect spot for an afternoon tipple in the sunshine. Inkies Smokehouse is around a 45minute walk (or short drive) and serves the most spectacular woodfired feast. We highly recommend a meal out here if you love rustic barbecue food!

For nature lovers you really have picked the perfect hideaway. Golithia Falls is only a short drive away and is a truly magical woodland to be explored. For the adventure seekers Cardinham Woods isn't far and is popular with both cyclists and walkers. Heading a little further south, the coastline is truly spectacular. From picturesque Fowey with a great selection of eateries and independent shops, to the majestic Whitsand bay. A popular beach for surfers. Pop across to the north coast you'll discover the iconic Tintagel with its historical castle and quirky Boscastle isn't far. St Nectans Glen is close to this area and if you love a waterfall, it is well worth a visit. Padstow isn't far and again has an abundance of restaurants, cute cafes, and shops to be explored as well as the famous Camel Trail.
