Salty sea dog

A stunning coastal cottage, just a stone’s throw from the spectacular surfing and dog-friendly tidal beach at Trebarwith Strand.

Steeped in rich heritage, Salty Sea Dog sits comfortably on the Cornish coastline at Trebarwith Strand, just a few footsteps from sand and sea. Originally built in the early 1800s by Earl Wharncliffe, the building has been a part of the landscape for over 200 years, beginning as refreshment rooms and going on to become a prominent hotel, coach house and stables. Today, Salty Sea Dog has an exceptionally well-designed modern interior with high-quality fixtures and fittings and a complementary coastal poise, and although changes have taken place over the last two centuries, the property has retained its unique character and charm.

Hues of silver and grey fall across the wonderfully bright kitchen space, with sunlit sparkles glinting on the quartz work surfaces as you prepare the next family meal with all the essential appliances close at hand. Two beautiful sash windows overlook the strand and invite you to watch the world go by from a seat at the rustic kitchen table in residence. With stripped pine wood floors and Chinese slate underfoot, gorgeous feature wall panels bring stylish warmth to the comfortable living room. The double bedroom has been thoughtfully designed so you can relax in comfort, with restful nautical blue and white undertones and a view of the strand. The bunk room offers a quirky, quiet space where the kids will love to hide away, with a fresh and bright shower room to rinse away the salt and sand.

Salty Sea Dog is another rare and golden opportunity to own a little piece of Cornish history, and as the property is currently a popular holiday let it comes fully furnished, with its very own parking space, so you need only turn the key and enjoy your new home.
