An 18th century fairy tale cottage set within a magical sylvan setting is on the market in Tehidy, Cornwall, for £395,000.

Once a gateway into the Tehidy Estate, the thatched period home has been extended to provide two bedrooms, a good-sized living room, quaint kitchen and a family bathroom. With masses of character throughout, it's a charming home cosily tucked away in a hidden woodland area.

The idyllic home opens into a fronted pillared porch, which takes you straight into the kitchen. Retaining many of its original features, new owners can enjoy the crackling fireplace, welcoming seating areas, tiled flooring, and pretty postcard-worthy gardens (they're seen from every window). There might only be room for two people, but countryside living doesn't get much better than this.

Elsewhere, there is also parking for three cars, a gravelled driveway, plus a rear and side garden that has been given heaps of love. Surrounded by sprawling lawns, mature trees, foliage and beautiful flowers, it could be straight from the pages of a children's book.

Situated in the sleepy village of Illogan, there is a handful of good schools nearby, lovely shops, cafes, and countryside walking routes to explore on a lazy weekend. It really is the ultimate dream...

This property is currently on the market for £395,000 with Lillicrap Chilcott.
