Lilac Cottage is a stone built fisherman's cottage. It has recently been renovated whilst retaining a feel and welcome of a coastal cottage. It offers a comfortable base to explore the magnificent Cornish coastline.
On entering Lilac Cottage you will find an open-plan kitchen/living area offering a fully fitted kitchen including integrated dishwasher, fridge & oven with grill, ceramic hob, extractor hood & microwave. Should you decide to cook, one can see across the Fowey estuary and the boats sailing on it!
The living area (looking out towards the courtyard garden) has an eating area for 4 persons and a comfy seating area including sofa, chair & window seat. A traditional cast iron woodburning stove is the centrepiece for lighting during the cold winter months although a wall-mounted panel radiator is available for use. A small flat screen television & DVD player is also available.
The first floor offers two bedrooms; one being a double room with built in wardrobe (overlooking the courtyard garden & village), the other offering a 3ft single bed with another 3ft pull-out adult bed under should it be required. This bed may be raised to the same level as the first. This room also has a built in wardrobe and overlooks the stunning Fowey estuary. Both bedrooms have space-saving stripped-pine sliding doors. The simple but contemporary renovated bathroom offers an electric shower, small sink, w.c. and electric towel rail. In addition, there is underfloor heating for those cold winter months (available between October-April).
To the front of the property is a small contained paved outside area suitable for relaxing & 'al-fresco' dining. At the end of the paved area is an outbuilding which contains a washing machine and storage facilities.
With this cottage also comes a dedicated parking space within the village (approximately 5-10 minutes walk - depending on how quickly one walks up the hill!) thereby avoiding any car parking charges. There is space outside the cottage to unload/load a vehicle prior to moving it to the parking space provided.
We are now pleased to offer wifi at the cottage for all that can't be without their devices! The public house in the village also offers this free to its customers.
Finally, for those who follow the 'Poldark' series, some of the key locations can be easily reached. Charlestown has been used for tall sail boat settings (45 minutes away), the National Trust's Levant Mine (which doubles as the rolling mill where Poldark's copper is processed) is 1.5 hours away and St Agnes famed for Poldark's horseback gallops is 1 hour away towards Cornwall's north coast. In addition, Bodmin Moor that is the setting for Poldark's home is 30 minutes away. Please note timings are approximate and are made by car.
