A chic retreat just made for two, Skylarks has a really spacious open plan layout and with gorgeous open beams and oak lintels. It is a detached barn conversion with many original features and has a lovely bright and airy living area with the sun streaming through skylights and a particularly large separate bedroom. The luxurious bathroom has a roll top bath and walk-in shower.
Skylarks is one of just two charming and stylish cottages for couples at Bolotho Barns, so there is both seclusion and great attention to detail. The two beautifully appointed converted stone barns are arranged around a courtyard, tucked away down a farm drive. The peaceful rural location is just a few minutes from the enchanting creeks of the south Cornish coast, a short drive from the surfing beaches of the north Cornish coast and three lovely village pubs are nearby.
Skylarks also comes with the comforts of a boutique hotel and a refreshing contemporary country style. It has a king-sized sleigh bed with 500 thread count linen, roll top bath, walk-in shower, designer lighting, oak floors, fizzing woodburners and great coffee makers. Luxury soft furnishings and styling add to the relaxing and indulgent atmosphere. There is a particularly generous welcome basket and complimentary Sunday papers are delivered to your door.
On your private patio there are steps directly up to the apple and cherry orchard and our two acre paddock for your own access to another seat in the sun, which frames a glorious view of rolling fields and woods. Guests are free to walk around our land and you may come across an occasional shy deer as well as the many wild birds who make their home here.
Bolotho Barns are located in a rural setting near to the hamlet of Killiow and just a ten minute drive from the attractive county capital of Truro with its historic streets, markets, cathedral and cultural attractions. Guests will love the rolling landscape of fields, woodlands and streams of this special place. From here you are just a few minutes from the enchanting creeks and estuaries of the south Cornish coast and also a short drive from the rugged coastline and surfing beaches of the north Cornish coast.
It's an amazingly tranquil spot for a relaxing hideaway holiday, but also the ideal base for exploring Cornwall. For interesting days out, you can visit places to the north like the Eden Project or Tintagel, and to the west like St Ives or St Michael's Mount all within an hour's drive. In Falmouth, just twenty minutes away, there is an historic castle and amazing art galleries to discover. Or follow a literary trail with the Cornwall of Rosamunde Pilcher from Lamorna to Padstow, or Daphne Du Maurier's Cornwall in Fowey and the Helford River. All within easy reach of Bolotho.
A very attractive 18 hole golf course is situated right next to Bolotho Barns, the National Trust's Trelissick Gardens is five minutes away and there are three lovely village pubs which serve excellent food nearby.
Advice and recommendations can be given on a variety of local activities and restaurants. Bolotho Barns are particularly well located for a range of water sports on both coasts, bike trails with bike hire and beautiful walks. Spa treatments, yoga and wine tasting are all available in your cottage.
Holiday bliss - whether you are enjoying a glass of wine on the patio or snuggling up by the woodburner. How peaceful to wake up to just the sound of the birds singing. As you arrive in the courtyard you begin to relax.
Pets are welcome by arrangement in Skylarks.
