After a breezy walk on the coastal path or an icy dip in the big blue, there’s nothing like returning to a cosy Cornish cottage with a crackling wood-burning stove. So if you feel like an autumnal escape or a wintery getaway to Cornwall, take a look at these stunning retreats. They are handpicked by us, for you.
1. St Clement’s House, Mousehole
In the achingly-picturesque harbour of Mousehole (pronounced “Mow-zul”), is this elegant Georgian townhouse. Kick back and pretend you’re in the times of Poldark with your granite fireplace and fire next to you!
2. Castaway Cottage, Gwithian
On the edge of an exposed dune-scape sits the comfortable and stylish Castaway Cottage. A session in the Atlantic swell is all the easier when you know you have a cosy nook to retreat to!
3. Courtyard Cottage, Port Gaverne
In a secluded cove next to Port Isaac sits an idyllic settlement, once associated with pilchard fishing, now a collection of beautiful retreats. Courtyard Cottage has…you guessed it, a stunning cast iron wood-burner. The coastal walking is stunning around here, so this cottage is the perfect base to explore the South West Coast Path.
4. Roselyn Cottage, Fowey River
Down the Fowey River, up a creek, sits the village of Lerryn and Roselyn Cottage. Roselyn is a stylish modern renovation which maintains all the building’s historic character. If you get tired of sitting around the fire, you can always try the wood-fired hot tub in the garden!
