A clifftop escape

A unique coastal retreat offers a perfect stay in Cornwall.

Located high on the cliffs of north Cornwall, in a completely unique location with spellbinding views of the sea and coastline, you’ll find St Piran’s Point. This hugely romantic barn conversion occupies an exceptional spot between Holywell Bay and Perranporth and is an extraordinary boutique retreat both inside and out.

St Piran’s Point is a charming one bedroom property set in a tranquil and secluded spot and provides a wonderful base for a luxurious coastal escape. Beautifully renovated with much style and flair, the harmonious palette of natural colours creates a soothing space to unwind. The stunning vaulted ceiling and woodburner create an airy yet welcoming bolthole whatever the weather. The large open-plan living, dining and kitchen area has a huge picture-window at one end with sea views stretching along the coast to Perranporth and beyond to St Agnes and St Ives.

The stylish, modern kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need to rustle up some culinary delights and intimate meals, while the living area is home to a large plump sofa with Smart TV – perfect for snuggly nights in with a book or a film. Or on a warm evening, the outdoor table and chairs make the perfect vantage spot for watching the day draw to a close with one of Cornwall’s unforgettable sunsets.

A sleek en-suite shower room complete with a double shower, is perfect for soaking under after a day’s exploring. And the pretty bedroom, whose double bed is bedecked with sumptuous, Egyptian cotton bedlinen, is just the spot to indulge yourselves with long lie-ins and breakfast in bed. After a long, salty air-filled day by the sea, you’ll soon be lulled to sleep by the distant sound of the elements and nature.

A gate from the property leads out onto the South West Coast Path and a gentle stroll will take you to the soft, golden sands and surf of Ligger Bay, Penhale Corner
(an off-the-beaten-track surf spot favoured by experienced locals prepared to walk) and Perranporth beach. Surrounded by unspoilt clifftop heathland – home to rare breeds such as choughs and peregrine falcons – this is an elemental destination for anyone seeking respite from the humdrum or urban.
