The property Hideaway cottage is a gem, dating back to the early to mid 1800's. For twenty or more years it has been a happy and much loved home to a discerning family, who have improved and fine tuned it, without expense spared, to create a remarkable home inside and out.
The delightfully presented accommodation has a depth of quality which impresses. Upstairs are 3 double bedrooms, all overlooking the valley, plus a shower room/WC. Downstairs, all is charming with separate beamed ceiling sitting and dining rooms and a superb living room/conservatory which flows from the family kitchen and outside onto a sheltered slate paved terrace and into the garden.
The owners are keen to live as energy efficiently as is reasonably possible and have installed a 3.6Kw P.V. Solar array as well as a recent Air source heat pump all of which has combined to provide the cottage's energy needs with a surplus "feed-in" payment.
The Hideaway annexe is such a valuable resource providing opportunity for a dependent relative perhaps, as overspill accommodation or to let out.
The quality of this conversion is equally impressive, providing very comfortable self-contained living, again with glorious views.
The garden delights at Hideaway, having evolved over many years with hard and soft landscaping to create a very special environment indeed. In addition there is a pottery/studio and a workshop plus much parking space for the cottage and the annexe.

The location Hideaway Cottage is aptly named, tucked down a lane in an unspoilt spot, overlooking its own lovely garden, to meadow and Cornish countryside. Wonderfully rural, the cottage is also accessible, lying about 1 mile from Lanner and Carharrack villages, each with a primary school and local facilities. Hideaway is situated about 2.5 miles South East of Redruth, 7.5 miles from Falmouth harbour, town and 10 miles from Truro Cathedral City.
The Cottage is perfectly placed just outside Lanner village, tucked up a lane where one is private, with lovely walks, footpaths and bridleway around and all is readily accessible.
