Folnamodry, which means 'Aunt's Folly' in Cornish, is a restful retreat nestled in the historical village of Madron. Folnamodry is an exquisitely decorated, two bedroom property, with a minimal approach to the design of the furnishings, so as to enhance the exposed granite features and the oak timber flooring. The property provides a comfortable, light and airy environment for a relaxing break, where you can unwind and recharge your batteries.
Warm up from your day's explorations with a glass of wine watching the dancing flames of the woodburner. There is a cook-friendly kitchen with a stable door enabling you to watch village life, while the adjoining garden provides herbs and fruit for the cook. Dogs are most welcome, so your canine family member can also enjoy a wonderful Cornish holiday. Start the day beneath the apple blossoms, indulging in an al fresco breakfast of Cornish buttered toast and coffee. The driveway provides ample parking space, but if you want to avoid the crowds in nearby popular tourist spots during the peak holiday period, there is a bus service at the bottom of the driveway. Madron village is located 5 minutes from Penzance, where you catch the regular mainline and local train services, as well as the Scillonian III link to the Isles of Scilly. Folnamodry offers elevated views over Mount's Bay and easy access to the North and South coasts as well as the West Penwith moors. The world famous Trengwainton Gardens, a 5-minute walk from the cottage, has a great café for lunch and cream teas.
