The Tabernacle at Frieda and The Moon

Description

Utterly gorgeous in every way, this whimsically themed Victorian-style tabernacle hints at the glorious eccentricity of scholarly preachers of yesteryear. With bell tower rising triumphant, opulent botanical wallpaper (from quirky interior company Timorous Beasties), a radiantly coloured stained glass window and reclaimed ecclesiastical shutters screening the super deluxe bed, this amazing and meticulously hand-crafted bolthole takes glamping to another level. Just look at the glowing reviews!

Under-floor heated throughout with a Hobbit wood-burning stove for cosy evenings, Farrow & Ball paints with gold leaf detail, antique French lamps and books galore, could there be a more sumptuous or relaxing place to escape from the stresses of everyday life? Built on the wrap-around deck outside is a bubbling hot tub, sheltered and private and perfect for warm soothing soaks. A chiminea with hot plate will toast your toes as you barbecue your supper, its flickering flames warming you as you snuggle under velvety star-gazey skies, soaking up the sounds of the countryside and dreaming dreams of what could be.

Beautifully fitted out and equipped to perfection, The Tabernacle at Frieda and the Moon is utterly unique, seamlessly mixing antique finds with modern luxuries. There are gorgeous bed linens, cushions and throws; fabulous artwork and a bespoke stained glass window; a shower-room with double shower cubicle and big heated towel rail, all mixed with vintage treasures and a touch of styling genius.

Set in a level meadow, sheltered by mature Cornish hedges and whispering trees the view over the undulating landscape of rolling hills and fields of gently bleating sheep is quite idyllic. There is a walk through ancient woodlands leading to a little stream babbling along the valley floor, and sunsets over the hills that turn the whole sky from pink to orange and red.

The Tabernacle is set in the other half of the meadow from The Observatory. Both have their own space with separate entrance, garden and parking areas, and are naturally screened with a little wooded copse to ensure privacy.

The little village of Lanreath is just a mile away, set between the small harbour town of Looe and the picturesque fishing village of Polperro. There are beaches at Talland Bay and Lansallos and the South West Coast Path meanders along clifftops and bays nearby. Beautiful Boconnoc Estate has gardens to explore and miles of pathways criss-crossing its acres where you can walk or cycle, while the Bodinnick Ferry crosses the water to the sheltered moorings of Fowey, a renowned sailing haven with narrow streets lined by boutique shops, wonderful eating places and terrace upon terrace of ancient fishermen’s cottages.

For those extra-special holidays, the owner offers a celebration package – including a Cornish cream tea on arrival, a champagne breakfast hamper (delivered to your door on a morning of your choice!) and transport to and from a local pub or restaurant – please ask us for details if this is of interest.
