Huge french windows open from the kitchen onto the elevated slate covered patio with uninterrupted views over the Cornish dry stone wall out across Falmouth Bay. The feature stone walls throughout the property provide amazing character to many of the rooms.
A fabulous hot tub in a very private spot sits in the corner of the enclosed patio, also accessed from french windows from the master bedroom. To one side of the garden is a raised lawn area and a summer house which has the best views of the whole property - what an amazing place to relax or a perfect spot for dining al fresco or simply relaxing in the sun or under the shade of the summer-house. With a great local pub a short stroll down the hill, coastal walks from your doorstep and easy access to the Lizard peninsula, Helford passage and beyond, Manor Farmhouse could be your dream holiday home, however it might just be so good that you may never want to leave.

The second bedroom has 2 3' single beds that can be linked together to provide a single 6' super king-size bed.

Exterior: There is a grassed garden, enclosed via stock fences and a Cornish dry stone wall so you might have to watch an escapee dog. There is plenty of space and the views out to sea are fantastic. Particularly good is the summerhouse which sits on a raised area to one side of the garden and provides the very best views. There is a BBQ but you will need to provide your own charcoal.
