The property

Please note this property is a Friday changeover in 2017 Designed for pure indulgence, romance and luxury escapism, Omalast is a sleek, flawlessly designed detached hideaway for two with a private hot tub, pastoral views, a warming wood burner and ample space.

Blissfully tucked away amid peaceful countryside, this newly-built rustic retreat is close to both the north and south Cornish coast for saltwater escapades and the cathedral city of Truro with its independent shops, restaurants, golf course, theatre, cinema, art galleries and museum.

Approached through an electronically gated entrance and long leafy drive, it sits in over eight acres of beautiful private grounds shared with four other properties including the owner's farmhouse and Phoenix Cottage and Demelza Cottage which are also available to book. Anticipate scenic rambles with dog in tow, sinking into the stress-busting hot tub beneath a dramatic sunset or starlit skies, dining alfresco on the sun-trap deck, basking on recliners in the large, private and enclosed lawn garden and watching movies on the mega-inch TV beside the glowing wood burner.

Arranged on one level, which may suit those with limited mobility, Omalast offers couples (including those with pets and babies) a generous light-filled space with a subtle retro fifties design and a delicious hamper of goodies on arrival.

The intimate open plan living room incorporates a well equipped kitchen with plenty of fun extras including a coffee machine and milk frother for latte-lovers, candle lanterns, candlesticks, cheese board, napkins, ice bucket and picnic hamper.

Kick back on the plump sofa while canine companions curl up in the dog basket with complimentary pets treats and accessories.

The bedroom is equipped with a super king size bed dressed in sumptuous linens and a luxurious en-suite bathroom with toiletries, bathrobes, slippers, a deep bath tub and a walk-in shower that is large enough for two.

In summer, throw open the bi-fold doors from the bedroom to the enclosed deck with rattan furniture for a morning coffee with rural views. If you can bear to tear yourself away from this idyllic sanctuary you will discover golden beaches in abundance at nearby Porthtowan, Portreath and St Agnes and a little farther afield is the iconic resort of St Ives.

Falmouth, famed for its beaches, the National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle and the nearby coast to coast cycle and walking trail at Bissoe are also within easy reach.

Truro is the retail centre of Cornwall with a good range of independent shops as well as national stores all within a compact city centre. With its eclectic range of art galleries, bars, restaurants, cinema, theatre, museum and outstanding cathedral this small city is a superb year round destination. Steeped in history and intriguing architecture there is always plenty to do and see. Just meandering through the Georgian cobbled streets is a pleasure in itself. With many peaceful parks all within a short stroll from the centre it is a most relaxing city to visit. A wonderful day trip can be had from Truro to Falmouth along the stunning Fal estuary with many options to disembark and pick up the boat later along the scenic river trip.

Note: Maximum occupancy two adults plus infant. Note: Babies welcome, regretfully no children over the age of two years.
