New for 2017! A characterful country house just moments from the coast

When it comes to rural retreats, the natural beauty and tranquil setting of Shilly Shally is hard to beat. The stunning North coastline is a short drive away or you can walk offering guests a truly Cornish experience combining sand and surf with fields and fauna. Shilly Shally offers the perfect backdrop to any seasonal escape from family Spring and Summer stays to wild Winter weekends. The house has been recently restyled to present country interiors and create a relaxed ambiance. Shilly Shally is located on the Chapel Porth Valley footpath, a beautiful and easy 15 minute off road walk to the beach.

Once inside the ground floor offers an open plan living, dining and kitchen space just perfect for the comings and goings of holiday life. Whip up a feast in the characterful kitchen complete with range cooker and rural view from your kitchen sink, Cornwall is a mecca for foodies with local produce available from nearby farm shops and St Agnes village. The wooden country dining table welcomes good conversation and family affairs as you gather over breakfasts, lunches on the go and evening suppers. Relax in the spacious living area as you sink into comfortable sofas at the end of the day and cosy up beside the fire in the cooler months. A cloakroom completes the ground floor. A feature wooden staircase leads to the first floor and collection of three beautiful bedrooms. The master bedroom offers and oasis of light and space with private sit out balcony overlooking the verdant green fields. A further two bedrooms include a bunk room for children and sunny king bedded room dressed in fresh whites and soft greys and greens. The family bathroom is no less considered with a characterful use of wood and coastal colour palette, so welcoming after a day on the coast.
