Round n Round House in Cornwall
In need of an escape to recharge your batteries? Then look no further than the wilderness of Little Menherion. Set in a tranquil valley, this little piece of Cornish Paradise offers a very special hideaway tucked in a wood of beech and sycamore.

Furnished with a luxurious Chesterfield sofa, fully equipped kitchen and a copper walled shower room, the cabin also enjoys a wood-burning stove for those cooler evenings.
A great way to warm up after an exhilarating dip in their wind ‘Jacuzzi’ (aka local swimming stream) that runs closely nearby, you can also enjoy a stroll through six acres of nature trail in Little Menherion’s fledgling woodland and the quiet villages and local pubs in the area. Ideally situated to witness the wild waves on the north coast or gentler seas of the south, return to your hideaway for a peaceful sleep under a star-filled cupola and wake to the wonderful birdsong of the forest.
