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.”
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.”
“The bathroom has a fresh, vintage feel and the garden viewpoint means birdwatching is even possible from under the bubbles.”
“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.”
