Little Gillyflower Cottage in Cornwall
The listing says:
Once upon a time, visitors used to travel upstream on boats to gaze at the blossom that clothed the valleys and the daffodils grown for florists in London. The pretty interiors at Little Gillyflower Cottage take their inspiration from this wonderful valley heritage, with florals and delicate hues sprinkled throughout.
This sweet-as-pie love nest in Gunnislake has one king-size double en suite bedroom. It’s bedecked in a French style with a gorgeous soft furnishings continuing the romantic theme.
The wildlife-spotting opportunities are vast. Keep eyes peeled for osprey, barn owls, spoonbills, peregrine falcons, the beautiful kingfisher and dragonfly.
You might even be lucky enough to spot the shy otter fishing for his lunch on the river banks!
Romantic afternoons are best spent picnicking in the wild flower meadows around the cottage. Or daydream with your beloved alongside the meandering river.
Doesn’t that sound like a lovely way to spend a vacation? The romantic descriptions for the Unique Home Stays listings always make me want to start packing my bags! Thanks to them for sharing this listing with me.
