Coastal Escapes

Our choice of Cornish coastal getaways.



Occupying a prime position above the quaint fishing village of Port Isaac, The Terrace looks out towards the Atlantic ocean and is perfectly placed to explore the area on foot, leaving the car(s) in the ample parking area, whilst offering families a spacious and luxurious base for north coast adventures.

A stylish sun terrace on two levels wraps itself around the property. Mature olive trees and intricate brickwork create a Mediterranean ambience and the garden is delightfully sheltered from the sea breeze. A large lawn, bordered by colourful blooms creates the perfect place for little ones and canines to play. Whether it’s stretching out on the day bed to soak up the Cornish sunshine or sinking into the bubbles in the hot tub to watch the sunset, rest and relaxation will come easily at The Terrace.

Inside you’ll find a well-equipped kitchen with Rangemaster double oven, electric hob, microwave, full-height fridge-freezer with ice dispensing facility, two dishwashers and a wine fridge. The main living room has dual aspect, glass bi-folding doors where you can experience inside-outside living at its best. A second, more intimate living area provides a stylish setting for indoor holiday activities.

There are five good sized bedrooms mixing sea views and sun terraces, all with Smart TVs.


Old Lanwarnick

This charming upside-down barn, with wonderful views of the Cornish countryside and sweeping vista of Old Lanwarnick, benefits from an open-plan living space with a well-equipped kitchen and Juliet balcony to watch the world go by. Perfect for the cold winters with the wood-burning stove, or on a summer’s day sitting out in the fully enclosed, private garden, it’s the ideal retreat for all the family and your four-legged friend.

Hob Nob sleeps six, comprising a master bedroom with en-suite shower, double bedroom with
en-suite shower and one room with two single beds, plus a family bathroom with whirlpool bath.

It’s a wonderful base from which to explore the local area with Looe and Polperro just ten minutes away. Further afield you’ll find the world-famous Eden Project and the dog-friendly beach at Seaton. If you want to leave the car behind then there are several walks of varying length that lead directly from the door. Or you can simply relax and make the most of the on-site facilities, including hot-tub, gym, woodland walk, or pamper yourself by booking a massage!

This is just one of six cottages at Old Lanwarnick which accommodate two to eight guests.


Kilminorth Cottages

Ash Cottage at Kilminorth definitely has that holiday wow-factor, as is evident the moment you cross the threshold. It’s a stylish, newly renovated cottage, split over two floors. It’s absolutely perfect for larger groups, accommodating up to six guests across three bedrooms. The outdoor space is just as impressive and enjoyable. Patio doors lead out to a large, private decked area, complete with sun loungers, seating and a large six-person hot tub, the ideal spot to enjoy the Cornish sunshine.

That’s what this gorgeous and secluded destination is all about – offering true escapism from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You’d be forgiven for never even leaving the grounds – after all, there’s an on-site bar, a seasonal swimming pool, wildflower meadows and walks, tennis courts, and much more. If you do fancy a jaunt a little further afield, there’s a lot waiting for you. Quintessential Cornish villages, scrumptious local cuisine and so much history and heritage are all there to be discovered on the doorstep, and the Kilminorth team are always happy to give personalised recommendations on arrival, so you can really make the most of your getaway to this beautiful county.
