Owl House is a tranquil old shippen, providing comfortable holiday accommodation in the quiet hamlet of Treneague in Cornwall.
It stands in the grounds of a 17th century cottage but is not overlooked. French windows lead to a secluded terrace with fig trees and yuccas, enclosed by dry stonework. With only the sound of owls at night, this is a restful location.
