This traditional cottage is the perfect romantic retreat, situated in a unique location and enjoying stunning sea views.

What could be more romantic than waking up to sea views each morning? This traditional cottage is ideal for couples who are looking to escape their busy lives and spend some quality time together in peaceful surroundings. Complete with a crackling wood burner, the cottage is so cosy you might not want to leave.

Arranged on one level, Newdowns Cottage is decorated in calming tones. Choose from snuggling up in the deep sofas of the lounge with a good film, or sharing a home-cooked meal for two in the sunroom which is flooded with natural light. From here, you are treated to breathtaking views of the garden, across the fields and out over the glistening bay. As the night draws in, the bedroom is a soothing haven to rest your head with crisp sheets and plump pillows.

Newdowns Cottage is situated just under a mile from the picturesque village of St Agnes, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and which is also a World Heritage Site. Encompassing traditional friendly Cornish atmosphere, the village is the perfect place to stop for a pub lunch before heading out on a windswept coastal walk. Take a stroll to Trevaunance Cove with its ruined harbour or pack your bucket and spade and lounge on one of the four beaches. Attractions in the area include the Wheel Coates ruins (1.5 miles), St Agnes Beacon (1 mile), Eden Project (31 miles), Newquay Zoo (12.5 miles) and St Michael's Mount (24 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The photos do not do the cottage justice, spacious for two people and a dog. Beautiful setting, loved waking up and being able to see the farm land and the sea. Beautiful front room views and log burner. Lovely owner

The property for 2 is as good as it gets with space, situation and all the things one would hope and expect in a property. It is much bigger than normal for 2 people.

Newdowns Cottage is a beautiful building, literally a three minute walk from the coastal path. It is the perfect place to completely switch off and relax in such scenic surroundings. It is very remote but thats just what we wanted! The owner was welcoming and friendly. She even waved us off when we left the cottage!

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.
