Cornwall Living

Icons reborn

Welcome to Cornwall Living – for those who love nothing more than to embrace the ultimate lifestyle by the sea.

In our quest to find the most unusual property conversions, we’ve searched far and wide for iconic Cornish buildings, large and small, which have been lovingly brought back to life.

Cornwall’s unique charm owes a lot to its beautiful vernacular architecture – engine houses, stone cottages, agricultural buildings, Methodist chapels. Sadly many have since fallen into disrepair, but many are being injected with new life. As Matthew Rowe, of Savills Cornwall, notes: “Inland there are so many hidden gems to discover with fascinating histories.” Lucy, from Boutique Retreats, adds: “A converted property – whether it’s a seventeenth-century barn, a tiny fisherman’s cottage or a lovely old chapel – offers something truly unique. Cornwall has these in spades.”

We also get into the spirit of spring by visiting some of Cornwall’s gorgeous gardens including Trebah (featured video) and Pine Lodge gardens, take a look at whats on at the Hall for Cornwall and explore some more brilliant Foodie establishments!
