Our lovely self catering orchard studio is ideal for tranquil and cosy breaks or retreats in Cornwall and is available to book any time throughout the year. The studio is spacious and the décor is tastefully stylish in a rustic, curvy kind of way! It includes a shower and hand-crafted kitchen with a huge brass bed, a big comfy sofa, a great woodburner and all cooking & dining facilities. The walls are covered with lime-plaster and painted with lime-wash in warm earthy honeyed golds, terracotta and soft blue while its roof is made of rubber slates from recycled car tyres.

The private deck overlooks the apple orchard, the woods below and the traditional Cornish field patterns of Cotna Valley on the other side. There is your own outdoor compost loo, very eco-friendly and relatively posh! There are indoor facilities for night-time if you don’t want to venture outdoors!

The studio is part of an L-shaped building, and is built of straw-bales. The large part of the L is a communal space for our volunteers and 2 residents Tom & Molly, while you will be staying in the small part of the L, peaceful and atmospheric accommodation suitable for two or three people. The thick insulation of the straw bales keeps noise to a minimum and the heat from the wood-burner keeps it toasty warm in the winter.

Where to start? We’ve enjoyed ourselves so much betting to know this BEAUTIFUL land/sea-scape around you have, that it’s beginning to feel like ‘home’ – especially after one of your  brilliant recommended walks – great to then get snug in this lovely straw bale house. Such a good job is being done here – having been ‘in the business’ we know there’s a lot of graft as well as craft and this smallholding of yours is SUCH a good example of just how it should be. THANK YOU! (Chris & Helen, Somerset)
