I was totally charmed when I saw this old house with the name “OCTOBER COTTAGE” over the front door. I wish I could spend October here!
It’s a holiday rental “nestled in the pretty moorland village of Rilla Mill in Cornwall, where peace and tranquility promise only to be disturbed by the sweet melody of birdsong.”
Take a look!
October Cottage in Rilla Mill
October Cottage, which is also known as Elysian, sits in a secluded rural village in East Cornwall.
The listing says:
Pared-back neutrals and original wood floors create a natural backdrop for an indoors-outdoors theme. Textured fabrics, loose linens and upcycled furnishings sit alongside inspired collections of ornithological art.
The Living Room with Wood-Burning Stove:
“The master bedroom has a king-size bed with bespoke botanical headboard and deep feather duvet dressed in French linen, and the two double bedrooms are equally as stylish and sumptuous.”
“Traditional hand-crafted wooden windows let in the dawn chorus to coax you from dreamland in true fairytale fashion.”
The Cozy Kitchen with Aga:
“With its wooden floorboards, wonky walls and a warm Aga with whistling kettle…Elysian is brimming with enchantment and provides a real haven for relaxation.”
“The summerhouse provides a peaceful haven from which to observe the plethora of wildlife on the doorstep.”
Property Advisor Sara says, “Approaching via winding country lanes, I felt as if I’d entered a children’s book and stumbled across a magical moorland cottage.”
“On balmy days, venture on foot from Elysian through woodland and past
hidden caves and sparkling waterfalls to find a tranquil spot for a picnic.”
