Buddlestone is a spacious holiday property, set at the end of the owners’ private drive surrounded by farmland, approximately ¼ mile from the village of St Buryan. Buddlestone originally formed part of the owners’ grade 11 listed traditional granite farmhouse (adjoining) and offers a peaceful setting from which to explore the many magnificent beaches and the historical countryside West Cornwall has to offer. Alternatively relax in the large private garden, enjoy a glass on the patio or in the relaxing garden room and unwind. On cooler evenings light the wood burner nestled in a truly impressive granite inglenook fireplace and snuggle up on one of the sofas. On arrival you will find wine chilling in the fridge and a traditional Cornish Cream Tea laid out for you to enjoy in the large, well equipped kitchen/dining room. We gladly welcome well behaved dogs (max. 2) who can enjoy the enclosed garden or local dog friendly beaches by day and stretch out in front of the fire by night.
The pretty fishing village of Sennen Cove, 3½ miles, overlooks the magnificent Blue Flag surfing beach of Whitesand Bay, from here a ½-mile coastal walk passes some dramatic scenery on the way to Lands End. Closer to home you can enjoy Lamorna Cove, or walk through the lovely St Loy Woods (a favourite with children), joining up with the costal path with its magnificent views across St Loy Cove and beyond. From here you can enjoy a costal walk for as far as you wish to go. The famous Minack theatre (2 miles) has open air performances from May to September or there is the scenic flight to the Isles of Scilly. Penzance is nearby as is St Ives for art galleries and specialist shops and both offer a variety of restaurants and café bars. Mousehole, Newlyn and Marazion also offer several fantastic places to eat, so you don’t need to go far to find amazing cuisine. St Buryan itself has a public house, which offers traditional pub food, it is family friendly and accepts well behaved dogs. Named after the Irish Saint Buriana, the village is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. This traditional Cornish village has several shops for everyday groceries, a garage, post office, antique shop and stunning grade 1 Church which reputedly contains the heaviest peal of six bells in the world. The surrounding area is dotted with evidence of Neolithic activity, from stone circles and Celtic crosses to burial chambers and ancient holy wells. There are plenty of other attractions too within driving distance, including theme parks, animal parks, craft fairs, music festivals etc… more than enough to keep everybody happy.
