    “Lovely cottage.”

    We particularly appreciated being to keep the cottage warm throughout.

    We particularly appreciated being to keep the cottage warm throughout. Excellent walks from the door. A highlight was spotting a short-eared owl nearby. Away from the tourist routes,lovely and quiet with lots of archaelogy and beautiful beaches nearby.

The property

Found down narrow winding lanes in the peace and tranquillity of the countryside three miles from Penzance and seven from St Ives, the delightfully named mining region of Ding Dong is an area of moorland steeped in ancient history with mystic Neolithic sites and old mining relics that echo Cornwall's past.

Set in south facing gardens with views extending out over the landscape to St Michael's Mount and the Lizard Peninsula on a clear day, The Boar's House is a romantic escape from the rigours of every day.

Painstakingly restored from a run down and neglected stone barn, an internal inspection will reveal many original features carefully integrated with the trappings of modern day.

Rustic slate with oil fired under floor heating extends into a lounge with French doors leading out to the garden and furnished with a comfortable blue suite, and on into a kitchen fitted with cream Shaker cabinets with solid beech worktops and a Belfast sink.

Upstairs the double bedroom is full of character.

Capturing the sun for most of the day the garden is a sylvan oasis in which to let time drift by whether with a leisurely breakfast or toasting the sunset at the end of the day. Peaceful rambles will give an opportunity to witness nature at its best and although you are unlikely to meet a boar, quiet paths lead out over a rugged terrain amongst heather and moorland flowers, whilst buzzards and kestrels soar effortlessly in the sky above.

Superb walking and riding country, facilities are available nearby for anyone wishing to bring their own horse.

This is a wonderful area to explore without being remote.

Penzance, Marazion and the superb white sand beaches of St Ives are not far away.

There is parking for two cars on a gravel area just behind the property.

About the location


St Ives 8 miles. Helicopter to Isles of Scilly - 30 minutes

Penzance hosts Golowan, the Midsummer Carnival, and The Literary Festival. There are also The Exchange, Newlyn and Penlee Art Galleries. One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas is the spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, the coastline hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves as well as winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by a causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as it is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Isles of Scilly as well as being the harbor. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
