Owl House is an old shippen, providing holiday accommodation in the quiet hamlet of Treneague in Cornwall.
It stands in the grounds of a 17th century cottage but is not overlooked. French windows lead to a secluded terrace with fig trees and yuccas, enclosed by dry stonework. With only the sound of owls at night it is a tranquil place.
