With two luxury bedrooms amongst the original 16th century farm buildings
Converted to residential use many years ago, in the last three years the whole has been updated and sympathetically improved. Now comprising two bedrooms, each with a spacious separate dressing area and with a bathroom en-suite for one and a shower room for the other, all the accommodation is on ground level. WiFi is provided free of charge. A cot and high-chair are always available.
For price and availability of St Corantyn Cottage, please telephone 01326 240550
A large living/dining area, with working wood burning stove, opens to a well equipped kitchen with electric stove, hob, fridge/freezer and crockery, cutlery, glasses, linen etc.
Bedrooms are equipped with fine cotton sheets and duvets. Bedrooms comprise one Super King and one twin bedded room, all fitted with mattress toppers for ultimate holiday comfort.
Decorated with restful style and taste, this most comfortable accommodation for one or two couples is completely private and surrounded by a walled courtyard on the southern side, a veritable suntrap complete with sun-loungers! Private parking is accessed from the Estate road and car spaces, adjacent to the entrance are a short distance from the front door, through a small enclosed garden. A wonderful space, should weather permit, for a barbeque (supplied).
More distant southerly views encompass the lawns of the Estate gardens towards the orchard and first of the lakes. A new garden feature, comprising a “Yew Chapel” is visible in the making with small plants happily marking what will become thick walls and buttresses of an exciting space.
As well as the exclusive privacy of their own courtyard gardens, guests can enjoy the 20 acres of Bonython Estate gardens at any time during their stay.
Who was St Corantyn?
Cury church is dedicated to St. Corantyn, a Breton saint who became the first bishop of Cornouaille in Brittany. First mentioned in the late 9th century, his relics are at his cathedral in Quimper, Brittany.
For most of its history, the parish of Cury, within which Bonython nestles, was a chapelry of Breage and there is a painting of Corantyn in the mother church.
