Tiny house in Cornwall: Embrace a dose of escapism at Skylark. With mesmerising sea views, upcycled interiors, and a glorious outside space perfect for sun soaked afternoons, this bespoke haven promises a retreat to nature like never before.
For the travel seekers wishing to fulfil their wanderlust, this is the hideaway for you. The perfect spot to immerse your mind, body and soul in nature for a little while. Wander through the trees to reach your enchanting abode, catching glimpses of the glistening waters down by the creek, where wild swims await. After, freshen up in the alfresco shower, perfect for swimmers, paddle boarders and salty dogs. The cabin itself has been handcrafted to perfection, thoughtfully designed and furnished by the creative owners using reclaimed materials. There’s a characterful wood-burning stove for those out of season escapes and a cosy mezzanine style bed for dreamy night’s sleep. The outside space completes the magic… and you may even hear a Skylark sing!
From the moment you step inside, you’ll be utterly captivated by this unique retreat. The lovely open plan living space allows your days to flow with ease, with a clever design which utilises the space perfectly. Deep blues, dusky pinks and wooden features create a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The perfect place to call home for a little while. The stained glass windows and reclaimed furnishings add to the charming character of the space, with the quirky wood-burning stove taking centre stage. The sweet kitchen is well equipped with all the essentials and the sitting area has a lovely fold away table. Climb the ladder to reach the cosy mezzanine style bed, snuggled in a cocoon. Here, you are promised a dreamy night’s rest (please take care when climbing the ladder). There is a beautifully presented shower-room perfect for freshening up after a day at the beach, but if it were us, we’d head outside and shower in the wilds…
The alfresco shower is situated behind the hideaway. Freshen up after a morning dip or rinse off the sandy paws of your beloved pooch. Skylark boasts far-reaching views over lush green meadows all the way down to the glistening waters of Mylor Creek, creating a mesmerising backdrop for your time spent in nature. The sun soaked garden is a dream come true. Enjoy your morning brew on the wooden bench, listen to birds sing their morning tune, play a game of boules, then cook alfresco as dusk settles. Stay snug beside flickering flames until the stars appear and toast to a magical holiday with the one you love most. This heavenly spot is idyllic for romance seekers wishing to spend some quality time together in a truly special location.
Skylark is nestled on a rural farmstead overlooking Mylor Creek, part of the wonderful Fal Estuary. The location is a dream come true for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike. Stroll down quiet country lanes to the edge of the creek, where you can sit in solitude and watch the tide ebb and flow. The water is still and tranquil here, making it perfect for kayaking, paddleboarding and swimming! You can even head down the creek to the Pandora Inn (or take the footpath) and moor your transport of choice to the dock. A pint on the pontoon is a must and their locally sourced food is simply divine if you’re feeling peckish! Pick up the coast path and head to the pretty village of Flushing with a couple of lovely pubs, village shop and passenger ferry service to Falmouth. The bustling maritime town of Falmouth offers harbourside dining, independent shops and subtropical beaches. Gyllyngvase, Swanpool and Maenporth Beach boast crystal clear waters and are perfect for long days lazing on the sand.
Mylor Yacht Harbour is less than 10 minutes in the car and is lovely for a little wander. You can even hire water sport equipment from Windsport International if you don't have your own. Enjoy a lovely lunch or dinner at Castaways and admire the stunning boats in the harbour out front. St Mawes is just across the water and is amazing to explore by boat. You can hire self-drive boats from Mylor Boat Hire and explore the many hidden coves along the coast enroute to this beautiful coastal village. Alternatively, catch the King Harry Ferry across the Carrick Roads for a day exploring the lesser-known Roseland Peninsula. Skylark is also a short distance from the beautiful Helford, where you can spend your days on the water or explore its many footpaths, including the circular route around the renowned Frenchman's Creek.
There is also an array of wonderful gardens nearby. Enys Gardens isn't far and is truly spectacular, especially in the spring with its vibrant display of bluebells. Embrace woodland and waterside walks at Trelissick Gardens or perhaps Trebah with a magical valley of flora and fauna. With all of this to explore and so much more, you are bound to fall head over heels in love with this gorgeous part of Cornwall.
