This is a place surrounded by green, where the stars fill the sky. You can hear the owls call, the songbirds sing and the buzzards mewing as they coast the thermal currents down the valley. A peaceful retreat for two, perfect for a cosy, luxurious stay, winter or summer. Well situated to explore what Cornwall has to offer - and then come home to a wood burner, comfy sofa, reclining chair, a good kitchen and a big big bed.

We are 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. Our seven acre holding is situated up a track, about 1/5 mile long. It is no longer agricultural, but mostly planted to woodland, with a footpath taking you over stiles, fields and through bluebell woods to the nearest village of Constantine. The heavy horses which once worked Tresahor Vean Farm were stabled in what is now Owl House. It is attached at the west end to a courtyard of converted mid-19th century barns, with stonework of unusually high quality for what were once agricultural buildings. The ceiling in the living room area is almost double height and the tall arched entrances with cleverly cut key post, are now glazed, one with a double opening. Owl has a hall, a large living room/kitchen (20' x 17') and an architect designed cedar extension with generous bedroom and a bathroom. A patio garden with table and seating leads from the bedroom's double doors. ( A good place for morning coffee or a meal or a glass of wine.) The house is well equipped, with good quality linen, kitchen appliances etc. There are prints, paintings and flowers - and some textiles from our son and daughter-in-law's printing studio, Particle Press and a Thousand Paper Cranes.. Some of the furniture is from the many independent antique and retro shops in Falmouth High Street. There is central heating and a wood burner with logs supplied. We offer a welcome pack of a loaf of bread, butter, eggs, milk, tea, coffee and a few treats, just in case you don't want to go shopping right away. If you give us notice, we may be able to organise one to one classes in the printing studio. For example, how to make a lampshade. Or how to screen print. Just ask.More

Owl house is in rural Cornwall about 15 mins drive into Falmouth, so you’re not that far away from town. It’s a lovely comfortable place, quiet and tastefully appointed. Has everything you need for a relaxing getaway!

A splendid, quiet location. The cottage is a good size for two, very well appointed, displayed nice touches, indicated great attention to detail, which was much appreciated, and made one feel at home. We wish we had booked for a longer away break.
