Overlooking rolling countryside Unity Cottage is a beautifully renovated single story barn conversion offering a perfect touring base with easy access to beaches, towns and theme parks, an ideal place to explore the whole county of Cornwall.
With stunning views over the Poldice Valley near Chacewater, the three bedroom semi-detached cottage was once used to store carts and tractors and has been sympathetically converted to keep its exposed beamed ceilings, mellow external stonework and granite doorsteps.
Unity Cottage has a light, sunny kitchen with patio doors opening out onto a decked area which in turn looks over the valley. There is a small paved/pebbled garden area tucked away to the side of the property which although is not totally private is an added space to enjoy the far reaching views and maybe fire up a BBQ. From here, there is also access to a large unsupervised trampoline if relaxing and taking in the view is just not enough! A wood burning stove in the open-plan living/dining room adds to the oil fired underfloor heating to provide warmth during the chilly autumnal and winter nights. The main bedroom has a kingsize bed and an en-suite shower room with WC and basin. The family bathroom has a bath with thermostatically controlled shower over, WC, basin and heated towel rail. There are two further bedrooms a Twin and a Single both with characters features such as exposed beams and vaulted ceilings.
Walkers will be delighted with the myriad of public footpaths and bridleways running near to the cottage - especially the popular coast to coast cycle track which passes within half a mile of the cottage on its way from Devron Creek to Porthtreath Harbour. If you enjoy cycling, bikes can be hired to explore the tramway at Bissoe Cycle Hire, three miles from the cottage.
The village of Chacewater, one mile away, has a choice of two traditional pubs, a small selection of shops, a fish and chip shop, playing field, bowling green and a doctors surgery. Unity Cottage is also a perfect base for exploring further afield. Truro just 6 miles away, has an intriguing and eclectic mix of art galleries, bars, restaurants, nightclubs as well as a cinema, theatre, cathedral and museum, making it a year round destination. A city steeped in history and awe inspiring architecture, there is plenty to see and do. Whether you are keen to shop, dine with friends, visit the gardens, an event or simply meander through the Georgian streets, a holiday to Cornwall is not complete without a trip into its capital city.
Unity Cottage is just 6 miles from the long sandy beach at Porthtowan, 7 miles from the quaint village of St Agnes and 8 miles from either the maritime capital of Cornwall - Falmouth on the south coast or Perranporth on the north.
