Beautiful stays in Lusty Glaze, Rock and Veryan.
The Pebble, Lusty Glaze
The Pebble is a timeless holiday home at One Lusty Glaze, a stylish suite of luxury apartments boasting far-reaching views of the Atlantic from sunny terraces. Inside, everything is beautifully presented with a delightful country cottage feel and a decidedly coastal finish.
The property is just a short stroll from Lusty Glaze itself, one of Cornwall’s premium beach destinations. It’s a beautiful cove with turquoise waters, a beach bar, restaurant and watersport facilities, so you can spend your days getting sandy toes and salty hair, surfing, making sandcastles and generally being beach bums.
Sleeping four, the property has hand-selected furniture, fittings and artworks, with wooden floors in the main living area, and underfloor heating adding to the refreshing feel. Not to mention The Pebble has been cleverly designed to make the most of the views, with all the bedrooms and living area facing the ocean and the terrace lending itself perfectly to al fresco dining and watching the sun set over the headland.
You’re also on the doorstep of miles of stunning coastline with world-class beaches, including Fistral, Watergate Bay, Tolcarne, Mawgan Porth and Crantock. As well as endless coastal paths, for walking adventures amongst stunning scenery, there are Newquay’s excellent restaurants such as Jamie Oliver’s 15, the delightfully delicious Fish House and Catch Seafaood Bar & Grill. Or, if you want a change to the endless stretch of glorious coastline then head to Newquay Zoo for a day of family fun.
John Bray Cornish Holidays welcomes this stunning family holiday home to their portfolio. Sleeping eight over four bedrooms, this gorgeous holiday haven sits at the top of Rock, a highly sought after location on the rugged north coast. With a spacious and stylish interior that enjoys the most luxurious furnishings, you can experience relaxed coastal living at its very best. For that extra special stay, why not include the private hot tub in the garden during your stay for that ultimate indulgence?
Inside, the contemporary living spaces combine wooden floors, fresh white walls and calming pastel tones to create the perfect holiday ambience. In the modern kitchen and dining area, you’ll find everything you need to cook up a storm with the area’s finest produce. A breakfast bar makes the space exceptionally social, while the full-length bi-fold doors open out into the garden, creating a light and airy feel and making al fresco dining a breeze.
The sumptuous living space comes complete with a smart TV and woodburner, perfect for getting cosy, and upstairs you’ll find four sumptuous bedrooms, two of which enjoy their own en suites, along with a well-appointed and modern family bathroom.
Rock boasts a plethora of shops, restaurants and pubs that lead straight to the Camel Estuary. You’ll also find plenty of dizzying coastal walks, as well as lots of opportunities to try out a number of watersports, and two fantastic golf courses, both within walking distance from Seastar.
Set in the picture perfect Cornish village of Veryan on the Roseland peninsula, Hummingbird has recently been transformed to sensitively combine traditional cottage features with a stylish and romantic flair, offering the charm of a Cornish country cottage with a luxury twist. The open plan living and dining area is the hub of the home where guests can enjoy tranquil afternoons beside the log fire, sink into the beautiful sage green sofa with a good book and gather at the dining table for the finest Cornish fare.
The kitchen offers all you could need to whip up an impressive holiday menu including the freshest of fish from Curgurall Farm Shop. Climb the stairs and choose from two boutique style bedrooms, each individually dressed. The family bathroom is super-stylish with striking black floor tiles, a freestanding bath and vintage taps and fittings, as well as a separate walk-in rain shower. Outside, two garden terraces offer al fresco dining with wonderful rural views.
Veryan has deservedly earned its pages in the guide books as one of Cornwall’s most picturesque villages with chocolate box cottages, a village green, welcoming village pub and the iconic thatched round houses built in 1817. The Roseland peninsula is a joy to explore, offering quiet respite away from the hubbub of the main hotspots. Carne and Pendower beaches are within a short drive, with soft golden sand and sheltered swimming waters. From winter walks along the shore to lazy beach days, walking the South West Coast Path to exploring the charming villages of Portscatho and Portloe, there really is plenty to discover.
