The detail

Perched in a lush green field in a truly stunning region of Cornwall, Whimsical Wagon is a unique self-catering chalet-style space for two. Packed with clever features and pleasing design, it's the ultimate getaway for anybody looking to escape to Cornwall for a few days. All contained with an open plan space, Whimsical Wagon is a quirky and delightful alternative to a traditional cottage, offering everything that a resourceful and outdoorsy couple could need for a romantic and restorative time away.

The moment you step inside the property you'll be blown away by the charm and warmth of this truly remarkable space. From the soft and comfortable double bed with its enviable views of the greenery outside, to the enclosed decking with its double-ended bathtub, Whimsical Wagon is bursting with little details and features which will make your stay a memorable and relaxing one. From the moment you wake up to views of the Cornish countryside, to the evening spent grilling some local meat or seafood on the high-end barbecue before watching the stars rise, every minute of the day is spent in blissful peace.

Inside, the house is deceptively spacious, with a kitchen area, sofa-bed, armchairs and a cosy central dining area. Although the main space is open-plan, the en-suite bathroom is separate, with high pressure hot water and a smooth contemporary style. All around windows let in the famous Cornish light, inspirational to so many artists, and provide views of the countryside.

Throughout the main area, a combination of finishes and styles has come together to create a distinctive aesthetic. Overhead there are painted exposed rafters, on the walls you'll find unusual lighting, and in the roofed decking there are cast iron café style chairs besides the bathtub, an eclectic combination of styles which works brilliantly.

Despite the feelings of remoteness, the home is ideally located for jaunts to town, and whether you're looking for a beach holiday, the opportunity to take in local art, a foodie tour of Cornwall or simply a town with great shops and pubs, Helston ticks every box. Swanpool Beach is just 16 minutes away by car and boasts a great restaurant, as well as kayaks for rent and crazy golf, and Falmouth is also less than 20 minutes by car and has the fantastic Falmouth Surf School as well as dozens of activities and amenities ranging from restful and cultural to highly active and culinary. Kynance Cove is stunning at dusk, the Cornish Hub at The Homestead does great cooked breakfasts, and you can do floating yoga at nearby Maenporth Beach.
