A little gem! Very pretty, richly appointed, superb attention to detail and beautifully presented – words that really do sum up this gorgeous little cottage which is situated right in the very heart of this traditional Cornish village. Beech Cottage is a former charge hand’s cottage dating from the 1820’s and is located in a secluded terrace of similar properties that sits just behind the ancient village church and within a short stroll of the village pub and shop – perfect for an early evening pint after a hard day on the beach! The owners of Beech Cottage have worked tirelessly to create a warm and inviting property that will stand up to the rigorous demands of today’s discerning visitor and they have certainly succeeded. To the front of the property is an enclosed and very pretty lawned garden with a central Beech tree (hence the name), flower filled borders and a patio area with contemporary garden furniture for al fresco eating. To the rear of the cottage is another beautifully crafted patio area with additional garden furniture to catch the evening sun and a granite built BBQ. A small outbuilding has also been renovated with a shower, hand basin and WC which is ideal if the children have just come in from the beach and need to de-sand! Outside facilities to wash down wetsuits and surf boards. Hand made soft furnishings, rich internal decoration, bespoke joinery in the bedrooms and quality fixtures and fittings throughout the cottage complete this stylish and extremely comfortable holiday property which is ideal for a family of four or for just a couple who require a little extra space and time alone! The village of St. Buryan sits twixt the north and south coasts and some of the regions most spectacular beaches can be easily reached by a short car journey. The village boasts two well stocked shops (one is a Post Office) and a pub serving good family food and is a short stroll from the cottage. The village church is well worth a visit as it has the heaviest full circle peal of six bells anywhere in the world – but don’t worry, they won’t disturb you!

West Cornwall abounds with a rich selection of traditional country villages and hamlets. They are, quite simply, what makes this part of the world so special. Set among rolling farmland and located three miles inland from Porthcurno, the delightful village of St Buryan can be found. Named after the Irish Saint Buriana, the centre of the village is dominated by the 14 century church which acts as a distinctive landmark for miles around together with its and its circular graveyard. The church is a grade 1 listed building and its six bells are said to have the heaviest peel in the country. Legends state that the 6th century saint (Buriana) was buried here after perishing whilst trying to kidnap a local king, despite Cornwall's patron Saint Piran's attempts to save her. Agriculture is strong in St Buryan, with ploughing competitions and horse shows still a regular part of summer festivities. This rural village is surrounded by several stunning ancient monuments. The famous Merry Maidens stone circle and The Pipers standing stones, to name a few, and there are ancient Christian crosses all around the neighbouring area. A few miles to the north of St Buryan lays the Carn Euny Prehistoric Village, an ancient settlement dating back to the Iron Age, which was active during Roman times.
A beautiful, cosy and comfortable cottage in a lovely location. The garden is immaculate and Terry was very helpful next door.
