Head Groom's House

Charming Cornish retreat

One of two beautifully restored buildings in Boconnoc’s Stable Yard, the Head Groom’s House comes with a special recommendation: it was designed by the master architect Sir John Soane.

Parties of up to four can spend the night in this charming cottage, which has two bedrooms. Other perks—organic toileteries, vibrant fabrics, and beautiful interior design—add to the warming ambiance.

Sleeps 4 | 2 Bedrooms | Dogs welcome | From £371 for a short break
