Experience - The Area...

Nestling in a peaceful sheltered valley about 10 minutes by car from Falmouth, Truro and Restronguet Creek, this detached single-storey timber clad lodge is set to one side of the owners own home with views of about 10 acres of fields where the owners sometimes keep their shire horses.

The nearby village of Ponsanooth, meaning "bridge at the stream", is a short stroll and has a friendly village pub, local store/P.O. and church. Also within a 15 minute walk is the Kennall Vale Nature Reserve with picturesque woodland, ponds and cascading waterfalls.

There is a bus stop within a 5 minute walk with a scheduled bus service running between Truro and Falmouth, and there is a large supermarket at Penryn, 10 minutes' drive. Falmouth, home to the National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle is about 4 miles, the cathedral city of Truro is 6 miles, and the Bissoe cycle trail is nearby. For garden lovers, the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Trelissick and Trebah are all within a 40 minute drive respectively.

Within an area of outstanding natural beauty, Clippity Clop has been purpose built with double glazing, modern electric radiators, a pleasantly light decor, and restful views along the pretty valley from the comfortable accommodation and deck.

Stay - The Accommodation...

Approached from the gravel parking area adjacent to the property where there is space for one car, a gently sloping, gated concrete path leads up to patio doors which open directly into the pleasantly furnished open-plan living room with a slate effect laminate floor.

In a light and airy decor with made-to-measure vertical blinds, there are two comfortable leather reclining armchairs with picturesque views of the lush valley, a small dining set and a smart galley kitchen with modern fitted units.

Leading off to the rear is a double bedroom with a fully tiled en-suite shower room W.C. with vanity basin and heated towel rail. There are two modern electric radiators that provide enough warmth all year round and there is also an external utility room with laundry facilities and space for wet weather/beach gear etc.

On the opposite side of the drive, there is a new railed decking area where visitors can enjoy watching the abundance of birds and wildlife that frequent this natural landscape and woodland.  Pets must be kept under control as the neighbouring fields may contain livestock.

Don't forget...
