Romantic Retreat for two

The Old Reading Room


cornish charm

traditional stone cottage with stream, roaring fire and relaxed vibes

The Poet’s Hideaway or, The Old Reading Room as we know it, is nestled within a tiny unspoilt hamlet together with a handful of other equally attractive stone-built properties, making this an ideal holiday cottage for anyone seeking a tranquil rural retreat. As the original name suggests, The Old Reading Room was historically used by local children to encourage literacy and oozes character and charm.

“What a wonderful place everything was just perfect. Would highly recommend. Such a beautiful cottage for a complete break away from it all. Everything had been thought off and will definitely be back some day..”
Francis Mathis
“What a beautiful cottage, it was even better than the photos. The owners are really thoughtful and we loved all of their small touches and the gorgeous furnishings. It was so warm and cosy and our favourite thing was sitting in the sun room at the end of the day. It was a really memorable weekend.”
