Into the Woods @ St Neot

Near St Neot, Cornwall, England

If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise – a beautifully-bespoke, excellently-equipped hideaway with stunning country views.

This beautifully-crafted cabin boasts glorious views of rolling countryside and wonderful woodland – the perfect place for a restorative break, soaking up the rural atmosphere with butterflies, buddleia, buzzards and beautiful birdsong all around.

Inside is just as gorgeous as outside, with wooden floors, planked walls, floral fabrics and vintage-style accessories. The open plan living-room includes a kitchen area with fridge, gas oven and two-ring hob, a sweet dining table with a view and a sumptuous king-size bed with the most stunning carved wooden headboard and dual-aspect views. In true luxury glamping style, there is of course a warming wood-burner and an en suite shower-room. Outside, you can read a book or have a snooze in the sunshine, cook up a storm on the BBQ and dine al fresco – bliss!

If you can bear to tear yourselves away, there are plenty of places to explore nearby.
