About Godolphin HouseCombining 17th-century luxury with modern décor, this large manor provides a memorable stay.
Indulge in a week of luxury when you stay in this hugely atmospheric 17th-century manor. Enter through a pillared portico that runs along the façade to a large six bedroom house where fine historic detailing meets modern luxe interiors. Linenfold panelling, a grand formal dining room and a contemporary stand-alone bath are just some of property’s highlights. To the rear of the house, a romantic garden with large lawns and an outdoor dining table.
As a guest you’re invited to explore the main gardens of the estate as well as the wider countryside. Stroll along the river, through the woodlands and out towards Godolphin Hill, where views over St Ives Bay and St Michael’s Mount emerge.
You’ll also find the Leeds engine house and stack, the remains of the Godolphin family mine.
Godolphin is just a 15-minute drive to Praa Sands and its coastal village. Loop onto the South West Coast Path, for walks along the headlands to Porthleven. Or head in the opposite direction to St Michael’s Mount, a rocky island crowned by medieval church and castle.
