Our choice of Cornish getaways: Enjoy beautiful stays in St Ives and Truro.
Scots Craig, St Ives
Located in a plum position above Porthminster beach, St Ives, a warm coastal welcome awaits within this magical high-top haven. Built in the 1960s, Scots Craig was once the residence of a local artist who adorned the stone walls with his artwork, all inspired by the ever-changing views.
Today, this iconic house has been lovingly and sensitively renovated to blend the old with more modern order. The interiors have been styled by a professional Cornish company adding a burst of colour and creative flair to this historic home. Choose from four beautiful bedrooms, generous social spaces and two large balconies offering one of the best views of the harbour, beaches and the opalescent
Scots Craig invites up to eight of your friends and family to check in for a very special stay in this standout property from the Cornish Gems portfolio, whatever the occasion, whatever the season.
Callestock Vean, Truro
If you’re dreaming of a tranquil escape amidst rolling green hills and beautiful countryside then Callestock Vean is the perfect retreat for you. This two-bedroom detached property is set in its own grounds with stunning views across open farmland. The house itself has been finished to an extremely high standard, boasting two indulgent bathrooms and a contemporary style throughout, with every room angled towards making the most of the incredible views. Callestock Vean has the benefit of being totally private and sheltered with fields stretching out in front of the property and with Cornwall’s stunning north coast just a short drive away; this property really does have the best of both worlds. Perranporth is just ten minutes away and has three miles of beautiful beach and cliff-top walks. Or, head over to Newquay where you’ll find a wealth of restaurants and shops, as well as some of the best surf beaches in the county. If you’re looking for a more secluded spot, take the turning off to Crantock, a fascinating village, which leads down to the magnificent sweep of Crantock beach. After a long day exploring all that Cornwall has to offer, kick off your walking boots and head back to the tranquillity of Callestock Vean. Fluffy towels, sumptuous bathrobes and slippers await you, and maybe even a glass of wine on the spacious patio.
