‘Honeydew’ is a spacious but cosy, all on one floor accommodation with features such as WiFi, central heating and a wood burner. Situated in Greatwork, on the outskirts of the villages Ashton and Godolphin Cross in the beautiful Cornish countryside. From the front door you can take advantage of an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways, one of which will lead you to Godolphin Hill and down to the National Trust property of Godolphin House or in the opposite direction to Tregonning Hill, making it a great base for walkers.
There are two pubs within a 10 minute drive, The Lion & Lamb at Ashton and The Queen's Arms at Breage, both pubs offering an evening food menu. Porthleven Harbour is also a short drive away and offers a fine choice of food, beverages and beaches. Praa Sands is the nearest beach, just 10 minutes away by car, offering a mile of golden sand, lifeguards during the summer, car parking, toilets, café and beach shops.
For day trips you're spoilt for choice as you can easily visit St Michael's Mount, Penzance, Newlyn & Mousehole or Land's End. The Lizard Peninsula is a 30 minute drive and on the North coast St Ives and Carbis Bay are only around 25 minutes in the car.
