The Retreat is a romantic cottage whose charm and character inspired the tales in the Daphne Du Maurier novel The King’s General. Couples can create their own stories at this lovely stone-built cottage adjoining the owner’s original mill house in the Cornish village of St Keyne.

Central heating warms the property, including the modern, open-plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and a sitting room with electric fire, TV with Freeview, video and DVD.

A cute private patio allows for blissful afternoons and summer evenings with its BBQ, and there is an enclosed garden area for dogs. Babes in arms are catered for and guests are provided with off-road parking, a washing machine and WiFi (on the site but not in the cottage).
