Step Inside

Samphire lies at the gable end of the inspired wooden clad Pavillions, this smart building evokes the original village sports Pavillion style of last century with subtle pale render and clading blending beautifully with the coastal scenery. This reverse level 2 storey home has been created with luxury and relaxation in mind. With first class attention to detail the house has been interior designed in cool neutral hues with statement artwork to evoke the drama of the nearby surf and coastline. Set over the first floor are 2 well appointed bedrooms, the master bedroom overlooks the ever changing coastal vistas and offers a contemporary ensuite shower room whilst to the side of the property a super king zip/lock bedroom for children or adults alike. The family bathroom is no less considered with the finest Villeroy and Boch fixtures and fittings. A central staircase leads down to the open plan living/dining/kitchen area and a cloakroom tucked away under the stairs. The generous living space offers ample room for all to relax, in the summer months the room is flooded with sunshine or cosy up in the winter months. The stylish walnut dining table can be dressed up for celebratory suppers or create the perfect space for afternoon tea. An enviable kitchen awaits with all the kitchenalia you could need to whip up a Cornish feast after a day on the coast. The Fern Pit cafe is a short walk away where you can hand pick the plumpest lobster for your supper fresh from the sea, they will even prepare it for you to pair with a bottle of local Camel Valley Brut perhaps?

From your Holiday Door

Fold back the double doors from the living space and extend your holiday life into the garden. A paved patio area with all weather dining furniture offers the perfect place for a sunny breakfast or morning coffee, follow the day long sunshine overhead where the evenings sunset fills your terrace with a warm glow. Leading from the paved patio a lush green lawn offers a spacious area for children to play or lead through the private side gate and down to the communal areas along the river bank and down to the shoreline. A well placed communal shower ensure you can de-sand and de-salt before heading to the luxury of your holiday home. To the side of Samphire is a private surf store where all your holiday kit can be securely stowed from body boards to wellies. Enjoy the trip to Crantock Beach, at low tide simply take the foot bridge across the ganel or in the warmer months the passenger ferry shuttles across the river at high tide. The beautiful golden sandy beach of Fistral is just a short walk away and offers a truly Cornish beach vibe from the laid back beach cafe, uber-cool surf shops and a plethora of surf schools just waiting to show you the ropes. The picturesque headland of Pentire is more tranquil area to explore, choose to wander up to the Lewinnick Lodge for a sundowner cocktail or follow the coastpath out the the Headland Hotel where a Cornish Cream tea on the terrace is highly recommended. Whatever the occasion your days are easily filled amidst the coastal energy of North Cornwall.

The Derbyshire family

Such a wonderful, peaceful place, we are sad to leave! Well equipped and very comfortable, we love this area so much.

Kay and Romeo

We have spent the most wonderful few days in your Cornish Idyll; it has given us much food for thought!

Josie and Andy

We had a wonderful stay at Samphire. It was spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable, wonderfully quiet and the views from both the lounge area and the master bedroom were stunning. It is a really magical location, with great walking straight from the door or a quick drive to some other stunning beaches, gardens etc. We were both very sad to leave and wished we could have booked it for longer.

We have never stayed anywhere so immaculately clean (and I'm very fussy). Had a fantastic holiday in a stunning property. Thank you.

Sue De La Mare

You're an amazing team, a pat on the back for you all. We had to smile last week. Just when we thought our holiday let was perfect and you could do no more for us. There was a terrible storm, and due to us being near the sea, it had left all the windows sandy. I said to my husband, i'm going to clean those windows for Cornish Gems. The moment the words had left my lips, there was your window cleaner in front of me. You really do think of everything, I'm giving you a 11 out of 10. Thank you all xxx
