Anjarden, built in the 18th Century, is a granite detached farmhouse, with 360' panoramic rural views, looking south over open meadow and fields out of the valley towards the sea and Lamorna Cove.

A tranquil rural setting of natural charm and beauty in the heart of "Old Cornwall". The town of Penzance is only 4 miles away and Lands End, with its magnificent sunsets, just 6 miles.

Accommodation - Sleeps up to 6: Set across a gravelled courtyard from another small cottage and with its own private enclosed garden, this lovely old house is full of charm and romantic character, tastefully and elegantly furnished.

Two of the three bedrooms & family bathroom with large enclosed shower, are on ground floor level. The master bedroom is on the first floor and this room has a door on the stairs leading up to it, which means there is no need to worry about very young children venturing upstairs. It is open plan once at the top of the stairs.
We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any queries or require any assistance please phone 01736 810405 or email
