Guest access
Farmhouse for exclusive guest use, plenty of private parking. Rylands sits in an acre of gardens and you are free to enjoy the space.
There is garden furniture and a bbq for al fresco dining. This is Cornish countryside at its best, the only sounds are birdsong. Buzzards circle overhead and nuthatches swamp our feeders. There is no light pollution so the stars are spectacular on clear nights.
