The Perfect Secluded Holiday Cottage in Cornwall

Little Molvenny offers you fine seaviews and all the peace and quiet of nature - as well as activities for every taste, outdoors and in, young and old. Enjoy the luxury and relaxation of a first class holiday, with memorable sights and the taste of adventure! Swim, surf, eat, drink, walk and discover - when you feel like going out, there's a wealth of activities close by, right from the signposted footpaths on to the rich natural environment, history and creative culture of West Cornwall. The Minack Theatre is in walking distance, and so are Porthcurno beach and Pedn Vounder and Porthcurno beaches, as well as the fascinating Telegraph Museum of tech, and even Poldark filming locations. Want rest? Total tranquility is here for you when you need that retreat from it all. Little Molvenny enjoys a secluded hillside spot in private grounds at the end of its own lane. French windows in the large open plan sitting room open onto a sunsoaked patio, which has a barbecue and a beautiful view down a green valley to the sea. If you hop over the fence here a footpath is just a steps away, taking you to the beaches and quieter inland walks. There is a small enclosed back garden for private sunbathing or hide and seek fun, and inside three bedrooms with beautiful fittings sleep six on superbly comfortable mattresses, and on cool evenings you can warm yourself by the log burner or surf the internet with our wifi. Ample private parking is provided right by the entrance, and dog-friendly Little Molvenny is a few hundred yards from the nearest road, with only our own private house as a neighbour. This very contemporary self-catering holiday accommodation was let under the name The Piggery, Porthcurno by the previous owner. It has been lovingly converted from a working pig barn into today's secluded holiday cottage in Cornwall, and although the original farm is long gone, the flourishing fields remain.

Catch a wave or catch the sun

Being secluded doesn't mean far away from the excitement and fun. For those looking for surfing adventure, Cornwall is known worldwide for its surf. Catch a wave at one of many surfing beaches just a few miles away, or check out the surf schools and outfitters there if you want to try something new. If you are thinking of taking it a little more gently then there are some wonderful secluded gems where you can simply lay on the golden sands and enjoy the view.

Holiday Cottage for Culture

If it's a cultural break you desire, then Littel Molvenny is the perfect base. From the stunning Minnack theatre perched on the cliff high above the sea, to the local historic houses and gardens such as Lanhydrock, Heligen, Tremenheere and Godolphin. For a magical day out why not visit the mystical St Michael's Mount or perhaps the artist exhibitions held in St Ives.

Explore the food of Cornwall

From the freshest of fish to the most indulgent of cream teas, if you love good food, then South Cornwall has many a treat in store. The Newland Fish Festival is a must see. Whether you love the cosy interior of a traditional Cornish pub with crackling log fires, or you desire a gastronomic experience, Cornwall has got plenty to offer.

Little Molvenny is a lovely place to stay. A great cottage with lovely comfortable beds and a wonderful aspect and view. Thank you!
