Beautiful stays in Coverack, Rock and Perranporth.
Epic View, Coverack
Epic View is a stunning first-floor apartment for two situated on the edge of a dramatic headland on the Lizard peninsula. Every morning you’ll be greeted by breathtaking sea views. A ten-minute walk from the unspoilt fishing village of Coverack, this dog-friendly retreat is perfect for couples looking for a calm and tranquil escape.
Epic View offers an open-plan living, dining and kitchen space that centres around large bay windows which invite panoramic and far-reaching views up and down the coast. The décor in this newly-styled apartment creates an oasis of calm.
French doors open out onto your own private balcony that extends all along the eastern side of the apartment. Café-style seating provides the perfect opportunity for a morning coffee watching the rising sun, and here you also have an electric barbeque to rustle up an al fresco seaside feast.
Nearby is Coverack itself, a picturesque fishing village barely touched by the modern world. It’s home to a surprising selection of places to eat and drink whilst soaking up the atmosphere. The harbour with its sheltered slipway is a popular place to get into the water, and you can rent windsurfing, stand-up-paddle-boarding or kayak equipment here too. This is also one of the UK’s best areas for diving with its deep clear waters and rich ocean life.
Keiro Veor, Rock
Keiro Vero offers luxury and seclusion in spades, just moments from the beautiful beaches of Rock, Daymer Bay and Polzeath. Sleeping up to eight guests and welcoming dogs, this unique property is the ultimate Cornish home from home. It’s also just a five-minute drive from the calm waters of the Camel Estuary and an array of restaurants, including Paul Ainsworth’s The Mariners.
Set within four acres, Keiro Veor offers rustic oak beams with sumptuous interiors. Guests can look forward to lazy days in the sunshine beside the pond and evenings relaxing in the warmth of the wood-fired hot tub. Enjoy warm soaks and breathe in the delicate scents drifting from the flower-cutting garden. The outdoor kitchen provides the ultimate setting for a barbeque, then as darkness falls guests can gather around the crackling flames of the firepit and gaze up at the stars.
The indulgent, rough-luxe master bedroom boasts a cloud-like super-king bed, illuminated by a sparkling chandelier hanging from the high ceiling. Head up the wooden stairs to your very own dressing room, complete with dressing table and chaise lounge; throw open the French doors to the balcony and drink in the heavenly views. After days spent walking the coast path, slip into the blissful free-standing bathtub for a long soak.
Part of the Latitude50 portfolio of sleek self-catering properties, all located on the wilds of the north Cornish coast, short breaks and low occupancy rates are available at Keiro Veor outside of the main season.
Located on a tranquil lane, just a two minute walk from Perranporth’s three miles of golden sandy beach, is Tregonnan – a stylish semi-detached holiday home that sleeps eight guests. Built with traditional Cornish stone, lovingly restored and retaining many original features, the property provides modern amenities and furnishings that complement its classic characteristics.
Through a stone archway into the house, you will find the kitchen with soft blue gloss units, a deep sink, exposed brick walls and a natural slate floor which extends into the spacious dining room.
A roomy corridor leads to the sitting room, beautifully furnished with an opulent four-seater velvet sofa and matching armchair. An original fireplace, occasional tables, and a TV make this a stylish and welcoming room to relax in. Outside, you’ll find a gravel courtyard with large garden table and chairs for family dining in the sun.
Upstairs, the spacious and modern bedrooms are light, bright and thoughtfully decorated with sumptuous beds and a comfortable, cosy feel alongside the quintessential features of a Cornish home. A shower room boasts a rain shower and a beautiful free-standing countertop marble basin and the roomy, main bathroom features a luxuriously deep freestanding bathtub with an overhead shower.
A few steps from Tregonnan and you’ll be in the heart of the bustling seaside village of Perranporth with shops, bars and restaurants, and of course the magnificent beach, rugged South West Coast Path, rolling sand dunes and great surf!
