Coastal escapes for January

The Old Farmhouse, Old Lanwarnick

The ultimate house for a family-friendly escape to the Duchy with four-legged friends, this property is perfect for larger groups looking to spend quality time together while having the space to do their own thing. Spend the day exploring pristine beaches, a rolling landscape and the rugged coastline on your doorstep at Old Lanwarnick before returning to the comfort of your luxury cottage, hidden among the Cornish hills. With two super-king-size bedrooms, one king size and one with bunk beds for the kids, there’s room for everyone, especially with the large separate family bathroom and extra toilet downstairs. The 17th century farmhouse is full of character
and original features; think vaulted ceilings, original flagstone floor and a clome oven where farmers would’ve cooked their food next to an open fire. Enjoy a relaxing evening in the tranquil south-facing garden, watching the sun go down from the outdoor sofas, curling up in front of the woodburner in the cosy living room and gazing at the stars from your private hot tub. End the day by digging out some board games or spending some quiet time in the study before retreating to your comfortable bed in preparation for another day together on the coast.

Tramanda, Waterloo

Just over half a mile from the picturesque village of Blisland is this large, centuries-old cottage. The same family that

owns it today purchased this property back in 1919 and have beautifully and sympathetically restored it. Offering a rural retreat for those looking to explore Bodmin Moor and adventure across some of Cornwall’s most dramatic coastal walks only a 25-minute drive away, this cottage provides a warm and relaxing environment all year round. Enjoy cosy nights in by the woodburner with
oil-fired central heating andß even a pooch parlour in the second living room to accommodate your furry friends. With room for eight, Tramanda is ideal for larger groups and offers access to a wide selection of amenities in the historic town of Bodmin as well as footpaths and bridleways leading you to the moor. The kitchen is complete with smart appliances and provides a super space to cook up a storm before a day of exploring while the living room waits to welcome you home to its comfy sofas and feature fireplace. All four bedrooms look over the garden and can be made into double or twin rooms so both friends and family can make the most of this charming cottage.

Cabin on the Cliff, Whitsand Bay

In a carefully curated collection of luxurious homes, Boutique Retreats offers a place to escape for you and your loved one where time stands still. Just one of these properties includes Cabin on the Cliff; lovingly designed and hand-crafted on the cliffs of Whitsand Bay, bare to the elements and the mesmerising views of the sea, this dog-friendly couples’ retreat is the pinnacle of romantic seaside living. Each detail of this eco-cabin has been carefully considered, from the natural wood feel to the sumptuous teal velvet sofa in which you can share a moment in front of the crackling fire, watching the waves on the horizon. Alternatively, spend the afternoon exploring local beaches, making the most of the e-bikes available to hire, or enjoying al-fresco dining on the blissful terrace. When the evening draws in, wander around the double-sided woodburner to soak in the deep copper tub as you watch the embers crackle before folding yourself into the warm embrace of a cosy bed just moments away. A bijou oceanside bolthole, complete with a hot tub, breathtaking sea views from every window and a footpath straight to the beach this truly is the epitome of luxury living.
