Miranda Cottage, Cornwall

In an age where architecture veers between the pretentious and banal, Miranda Cottage in the village of St. Martin stands out as an example of what ought to be the cornerstone for modern housing development.

Though it looks as if it has been standing for centuries it is, in fact, recently built. Blending modern comforts with a period ambience, the property utilises traditional building materials (slate flooring, granite lintels, and beamed ceilings) and is crowned by a splendid thatched roof.

All three bedrooms are doubles, and the cottage even boast two bathrooms. The kitchen benefits from an aga, while the living room features an oil-fired “woodburner”.

St. Martin is well placed for those hoping to explore the southern shore of the Helford, and the adjacent village (Newtown St. Martin) features its own pub, The Prince of Wales. Other dining options can be found in Gweek, Manaccan, Helford and Mawgan.

Those travelling with children will find a number of attractions within easy reach, including The Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, and Flambards Theme Park at Helston. The maritime port of Falmouth is also within reasonable driving distance and a visit could be easily combined with a trip to one of the gardens at Mawnan Smith such as Glendurgan or Trebah.
