About this listing
In Lostwithiel, in het hart van Cornwall, ligt ons huisje Astrantia House.
We noemen het zelf onze geheime plek….want hoewel het midden in het stadje ligt, is het echt een verborgen schat.
In Lostwithiel, in the heart of Cornwall, lies our cosy cottage: Astrantia. We call it our secret place, because though you're in the middle of the town, it's a hidden treasure.
You arrive at the house from Kings street, where, at the end of a dead end little alleyway, Astrantia lies behind the red garden door. At the front of the house there is a garden for kids to play with two terraces and a little garden shed.
You enter the house either from the front door into the hallway, or from the double kitchendoors (our favorite entry). Pls take your shoes of in the house :) The kitchen is fully equiped with all kinds of appliances (dishwasher, fridge, freezer, double oven, microwave, coffemachine, Nespresso, blender, mixer etc). You only have to bring your own Nespresso pods.
The dining room has a gorgeous Woodburn stove (it doesn't work but still... it looks good. And not to worry, the whole house has central heating). Through it you enter the utilityroom with a washer and dryer and adjacent there's the downstairs bathroom with shower and toilet.
Between the diner and the living there's the hallway with front door and stairs. The living is comfy and warm with a little stove (that does work). This is the oldest part of the house (c. 300 years) with thick walls and wide window sills. The living has a flatscreen tv with cd/dvd player.
Upstairs you find the main (large) bedroom with a double bed and plenty closetspace. The second bedroom also has a double bed and the third bedroom is a kidsroom with a bunk bed.
The bathroom upstairs has a bath and a toilet.
Oh yes, minor detail: we've renovated the place in the winter of 2016/2017 so it looks gorgeous! (caused by a nasty fungus, but hey, every downside has it's upside)
We hope you'll love it as much as we do!
You have access to the entire house and garden. There's only a couple of closets where we keep our own stuff.
Interaction with guests
We live in the Netherlands so it's a bit difficult to pop over for a chat. We'll be available by phone and email. But our daughter lives just of King street with her husband and three kids, and they can help if help is needed (details are all at the house). She was the reason we came to acquire a house in Lostwithiel, and we love to come over ourselves as often as we can.
