A heavenly spot for a romantic getaway, this delightful studio-style cottage is ideally situated in the heart of western Cornwall.

Hide away with your loved one at this studio-style cottage with a view. Surrounded by rolling hills and a patchwork of fields, this property is the ideal place to stay for a retreat in the heart of Cornwall. Despite its rural location, it's only 2 miles to the closest beach and less than a mile into the local village so you'll be close to great amenities while maintaining seclusion. Step out onto a patio lined with shrubbery to enjoy dinner and drinks under the stars.

Artfully decorated with warm colours and vibrant furnishings, the interior is dotted with stylish touches in the form of wooden beams and farmhouse-style furniture. The ornately carved double bed adds a splash of luxury and grandeur, while large windows and French doors provide panoramic views of the English countryside. Close the blinds in the evening and curl up in front of the wood burner for a cosy evening, just you two.

Less than a mile away is Mount Hawke where you can buy fresh produce, enjoy a meal or visit Cornwall's largest indoor skate park. Porthtowan Beach is 2 miles away, while Portreath is further down the coast (5 miles). The thriving village of St. Agnes is 6 miles away and a great walking spot; roam the cliffs and heathland of the area and you can find the site of an old tin mine, Wheal Coates (4 miles). Days out include Perranporth (8 miles), St Ives (20 miles), St Michael's Mount (21 miles) and the famous Land's End (32 miles).

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
