Space & Setting.

**Brand new**

This place is pure, off-the-beaten-track luxe. A converted barn, set amongst 26 acres of Victorian dairy farm – now lush pasture and wildflower meadows – it’s just 15 mins’ drive from north and south coast beaches, making the whole Cornish county your playground. Inside, the decor is exquisite: F&B panelling, original wooden beams, Scintilla star tiles in the rainfall shower (plus a rolltop in the main bedroom) and a beautiful dove-grey kitchen. And then there are the little things, including waffle bathrobes and underfloor heating. Every detail is perfect.

For couples, it offers romance and rural escapism. For a small family, there’s a sweet twin bedroom and all that space to run free. But the wood-fired hot tub — with a serious view — also calls out for a minibreak with the girls. And if there are more of you (a group of up to 10), book Molly’s Stable, too, and enjoy the shared spaces: a courtyard sculpted by the award-winning Matt James, a huge outdoor oak table for sociable dinners and a firepit for stargazing.

Getting here: best to drive as you’ll want a car while you’re here

Sustainability.

The cottage is heated by an air source pump, they have their own borehole for water (treated by UV without chemicals) and all rubbish is recycled.

  • Gwithian is everything you could want from a local beach – 9 miles of sand stretching from Godrevy lighthouse to Hayle. Hire surf- and bodyboards here, or go for a blustery walk around the rockpools at low tide, followed by coffee at Godrevy Cafe.
  • A 30-min drive will take you to Helford River, a stunning estuary renowned for its marine life (including wild dolphins, if you’re lucky). The best way to explore the 50-mile shoreline? By kayak. You’re spoilt for choice with pubs for lunch along the way, or pack a picnic to eat in the National Trust gardens at Glendurgan.
  • The Bissoe coast-to-coast cycle trail was once a mineral tramway for the copper mines, meaning it’s flat and easy to follow. Hire bikes for the 11-mile pathway, which starts in Portreath Harbour and finishes in the picturesque village of Devoran.
  • Get up super early to watch the sun rise over Gylly Beach, braving a sea swim while you’re there. Warm up afterwards with a Full Cornish breakfast at the cafe.
