Owl House is a peaceful retreat for two, deep in countryside, but handy for Tremough, Falmouth, coastal walks, Helford River with its coves and creeks - and not too far away from the Lizard, the beaches of the north coast and the Georgian towns of Helston and Truro.

We stayed at Owl House over Valentine's Day. I had booked the cottage as a secret surprise for my girlfriend who didn't know I was going to propose to her during our mini holiday. I'd never been to Cornwall but knowing about the beautiful landscapes I was certain it had to be here. Trying to find the 'right' place for... more

Jenny and family have created a really beautiful space in a very peaceful setting. We loved the log burning stove and cosy living space, the large and comfy bed and the quietness of the surrounding countryside. Owl House has all that you need for a very comfortable retreat from the busy world. Totally relaxing and restorative. Thanks also for the... more
