Weir Point StablesMylor
- Electric Car Point
Weir Point Stables sits surrounded by trees on the banks of the picturesque Restronguet Creek. Waves lap the shore just a stone’s throw away at the secluded Weir Beach, where the whole family can enjoy playing in the water or rambling around in the rock pools.
Striking a balance between contemporary beauty and luxurious comfort, this property is a haven for sailors, walkers, and families looking for peace and quiet beside the water. Sleeping up to six, contentment indoors comes from a woodburner, and living areas on both floors. A ground floor bedroom is perfect for travellers wishing to avoid the stairs after a tiring day spent out and about exploring Cornwall.
Large windows face towards the creek from the open-plan kitchen and living area, filling the space with natural light as the idyllic view of boats passing on the water is framed by grand, mature trees. Birdsong fills the garden as you stretch out and soak up the sunshine, and the handy door out from the kitchen to the patio makes ice-cold G&T deliveries direct to the sunlounger and al-fresco breakfasts a breeze.
Atmosphere is always on the menu at Weir Point Stables, where the set up of kitchen and living space naturally encourages conversation – and not only at family dinners around the table crafted from a tree felled here in the garden. When your chef fancies a night off, though, simply stride out along the footpath to dine on the pontoon at the nearby Pandora Inn – a 13th Century thatched pub, and one of the most memorable in Cornwall. Then, as you take the late evening stroll home, turn your heads to the sky – and marvel in awe at the depth and clarity of the stars.
Please note this is a quiet residential area perfect for people seeking peace and tranquillity.
