Overview

With its stylish interior, contemporary features and smart, landscaped outdoor space, it’s hard to believe that this beautifully converted barn is over four centuries old!

Equidistant between both the north and south coasts, Godolphin Cross is just a 10-minute drive from Praa Sands in one direction and Hayle in the other, so for beach-lovers it doesn’t get much better. The stunning town of St Ives with its historic Downalong, art, and food scene, lies about 25 minutes’ drive from the property, and even closer to home is the Museum of Cornish Life in Helston, St Michael’s Mount in Marazion, and the popular fishing village of Porthleven with its iconic harbour and famous Kota and Amelie restaurants. For those who enjoy nature-infused getaways with plenty of walks in the countryside, Godolphin Cross which sits in the heart of rural Cornwall, is as perfectly positioned. Encompassed by fields, farmland, and the 500 acres of woodland at the National Trust’s Godolphin House, there are many beautiful paths to explore in the area including the circular walk to Tregonning which has panoramic views from Godolphin Hill.

Stepping inside Captains Rest, guests will discover a light-filled and beautifully furnished home. An inviting living room with its large flat screen TV and roomy corner sofa lie open plan with the kitchen / dining area to create a convivial space for cooking, eating and relaxing together. French doors opening out to the garden mean guests can enjoy that fabulous indoor / outdoor lifestyle so synonymous with summer holidays, while upstairs, two beautiful bedrooms and a modern family bathroom with separate bath and shower, provide all the space a party of four could wish for.

Outside to the back of the property, the cottage’s lovely south-facing garden includes a raised terrace with an outdoor dining suite where guests can enjoy barbecues in the sunshine, and when the evenings draw in, they can light the chiminea and pop open a bottle of bubbly before settling back for conversation around the fire. Captains Rest lies close to an ancient wood which teems with wildlife including birds of all varieties, so the sound of birdsong creates a magical atmosphere.

*Please note that due to the steep drop from the patio level of the garden down to the lawn, children must be supervised when outside

*This property sits next door to the two-bedroom Captains Loft so for larger parties both can be booked together.
