Tucked away in the left turret of Caerhays Castle, Bottom Lodge is a unique coastal retreat for two along the shores of Cornwall, perched directly opposite the golden sands of Porthluney Beach along the stunning South Cornish coastline.
A romantic turret hideaway
The beautiful, turreted entrance of Bottom Lodge towers over the flourishing gardens that surround it. With striking views towards Caerhays Castle and free entry to the flourishing grounds, there are plenty of countryside and coastal walks on your doorstep.
As you open the door beneath the battlement walls, you step into a cosy wood burner-warmed living space with comfortable seating and Sky TV. Within the open-plan lounge area, you’ll find an intimate two-person table for romantic nights in, or for your fresh morning coffee before the day ahead. The galley-style kitchen is well-equipped with quality appliances, including an oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher, and all other modern amenities to rustle up a banquet for two.
As you head out of the side entrance to the property, the sounds of the sea greet you. The spacious, lush lawn enjoys breathtaking views of the castle, seascape sights across the horizon, and the iconic battlement walls along its borders.
The seaside town of Falmouth is just a short drive away through quaint, countryside lanes and over the gentle St Mawes Ferry. The Falmouth streets are filled with local restaurants serving up fresh seafood, and there are plenty of cultural places to visit such as the renowned National Maritime Museum – making it perfect for a day of exploring or an evening out.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Just a step from the lounge, you’ll find a beautiful bedroom with king-size bed, carefully, handpicked furniture and fabrics, and hand-crafted curtain poles – all in-keeping with the gothic, medieval theme of the home. Both the bathroom and utility are accessed off the lounge, with a washer/dryer for keeping clothes and towels fresh after long days on the coast. Enjoy baths of bubbles and delve into that new novel you’ve been meaning to read in the tub.
Please bring your own beach towels. Baby items such as a highchair and travel cot can be provided but please bring your own cot linen.
