Primrose Cottage, St Ives
Nestled in the charming Primrose Valley of St Ives sits a picturesque Cornish cottage, full of character and charm with the most spectacularly framed sea views of Porthminster beach. Accommodating six guests, Primrose Cottage includes two double bedrooms within the main property and an additional double room in the annex located amongst the wild flowers of the garden for a romantic, private retreat.
The perfect location for relaxing with family and friends, Primrose Cottage boasts a beautiful double fronted living room with high ceilings and views across Porthminster beach and St Ives town. Visiting during the winter months? Enjoy these views while cosying up in front of the log burner with a mug of hot chocolate. The large dining area seats six, perfect for entertaining, and the recently refurbished kitchen comes complete with a traditional AGA, exuding warmth and traditional cottage vibes.
Step outside to a wild flower cottage garden with a patio area, a large table with seating for six guests and a gas barbeque, perfect for relaxing in the evening and enjoying a glass of wine on those warm summer nights. And did we mention the rather practical outside shower and hanging space for wetsuits – ideal for rinsing off after a fun-filled day on the beach.
Exuding peace and tranquillity, this is the perfect place to escape from the challenges of day to day life to unwind and relax by the sea.
Trevose View, Widemouth Bay
Set atop the cliff, overlooking Widemouth Bay, this is a unique holiday home to enjoy with family or friends. With no near neighbours it is the ultimate coastal getaway, offering luxury accommodation with only the sound of the gulls and waves for company. Should you wish to venture forth, this area of north Cornwall is an adventurer’s paradise just waiting to be discovered.
Inspired by its coastal location, as well as the owners’ travels around the globe, Trevose View exudes a charm rarely matched. A Balinese influence can be found in every room, with bespoke furnishings carefully chosen to create a calming oasis. Open-plan living and floor-to-ceiling windows make the most of the incredible ocean vista, while the five beautiful bedrooms invite tired bodies to rest awhile, ready to awake, invigorated for the next day’s adventure.
Imagine waking to the sound of the waves and enjoying breakfast out on the sun deck, or nestled in the walled patio. If you fancy a morning surf, the waves at Widemouth are temptingly close; with around 2.5 acres of garden there is ample space for lawn games, or children can let of steam on the supplied micro scooters. And did we mention the sunsets? Trevose View is perfectly positioned for sundowns that will take your breath away.
