A clifftop break
Sea Cliff Cottage – a character-filled holiday let that has recently undergone a dramatic makeover with fantastic results.
Sea Cliff Cottage was previously a four bedroom property but after speaking with the team at Cornish Cottage Holidays, owner Marie took a bold leap of faith and transformed the property into an even more luxurious coastal bolthole for her guests to enjoy. The changes included turning one bedroom into a plush bathroom with walk-in shower and roll top bath, while the other became the ultimate for movie fans; a state of the art cinema room with gourmet popcorn, Netflix and a quirky gin station.
“Climb the steps to the rear terraced gardens and you’ll find additional dining space with a barbeque and, further up still, a wood-fired hot tub in which to soak and enjoy a glass of bubbles”
At the front of the property there is a charming stone veranda which affords dramatic sunset views across Pentewan Valley, below which is a sunken dining area with a large wooden dining table and gas barbeque to enjoy leisurely al fresco meals. Climb the steps to the rear terraced gardens and you’ll find additional dining space with a barbeque and, further up still, a wood-fired hot tub in which to soak and enjoy a glass of bubbles. During the day, why not simply relax on rocking sun loungers – a great way to while away sunny afternoons.
Owner Marie tells us: “At first, going from four bedrooms to two felt counter intuitive but once I thought about the advice, I was fully committed. The changes I’ve made make me smile and the icing on the cake is that, since it was relisted, the bookings have started pinging through!”
The first guests since the work was completed were a young couple who used the house as their base for their wedding next door at Pentewan Church. “The bride used Sea Cliff Cottage as the base for herself and bridesmaids to stay and get ready pre-wedding. After the wedding her and her new husband stayed on for two nights before flying off to Europe. I was over the moon that they enjoyed it for such a special romantic occasion.”
Just a short stroll from the white sands of Pentewan beach, Sea Cliff Cottage has been transformed to blend into the beautiful original architecture with a stylish, fresh look.
