Cornwall Living 2018

Coastal escapes

We discover some beautiful stays in Sennen, St Ives and the Lizard peninsula.

Cove View, Sennen

Boasting some of the most breathtaking panoramic views on the Penwith peninsula from virtually every room, Cove View offers stunning, spacious living that enjoys impeccable attention to detail.

Inside, the gorgeous main bathroom has a freestanding bath, while this and the en-suite shower room each enjoy oversized luxurious rain showers, perfect for relaxing after a day spent on the sandy beach below. Outside, you can drink in those dizzying ocean views over a flute of bubbles from your very own hot tub on the terrace.

Seemingly carved into the cliffside, Cove View sits next to a small path that leads all the way down to the cove, where the crescent-shaped Whitesands beach offers a mile of golden sand and some of the country’s finest surf. Above the apartment, the South West Coast Path winds its way along the fringes of this enigmatic peninsula, offering some truly inspiring coastal walks, while just half an hour away, St Ives, Mousehole, Penzance and the iconic St Michael’s Mount have plenty to entice the explorer in you.

Finally, for the foodies, both The Old Success and Ben Tunnicliffe’s restaurant in Sennen offer some of the finest local produce you’re likely to find, serving it up via tantalising menus in a dining experience that reflects the relaxed, coastal surroundings of this wonderful corner of Cornwall.

Scrumpy Cottage, the Lizard

Sleeping six, this self-catering cottage on the Lizard peninsula has the distinct feel of a Cornish country cottage. In the sitting room, a log burner promises cosy evenings spent weathering the Atlantic gales, while the patio outside is ideal for balmy-afternoon barbeques and Prosecco in the sun. Complete with mod cons ranging from free Wi-Fi and televisions in all rooms, to the master en suite’s walk-in shower, Scrumpy Cottage combines a classic farmhouse style of living with modern convenience.

Perhaps you just want to relax, unwind and let the stresses of everyday life melt away, with everything on site. If so, look no further. Newton Equestrian’s leisure facilities are second to none and include a heated indoor pool, hot tub, sauna and gym, as well as a snooker room and a sports hall!

Newton Equestrian is perfectly placed for guests to enjoy some of the finest parts of Cornwall’s coastline, with dizzying sea views and coastal walks aplenty. What’s more, as the name suggests, it doubles as a riding school, putting horse lovers in prime position to explore miles upon miles of stunning Cornish scenery from the saddle; what could be more exhilarating than a steady gallop across the beach at sunset?
