Immerse yourself in the rural idyll of Scilly Stack and relax into a Cornish pace of life within the beautiful scenery of West Cornwall. Once a forgotten stone cowshed, the barn has been flawlessly renovated with superior luxury and countryside charm in mind. With it's unique farm location, step out from your holiday door and discover the myth and legend of this most Westerly Point including the windswept golden sand coves of Sennen, Gwenver and Cape Cornwall and the sub tropical Cot Valley. Scilly Stack is as perfect for summer stays as for wild winter weekends.

The Property

Follow the coast road heading West and arrive at the cliff top location of Bollowal hamlet located just outside of St Just. Scilly stack is single storey stone barn and sets the scene for a truly memorable stay full of Cornish adventures. Open the door and step into the open plan living, dining and kitchen space with characterful slate flooring and high ceilings. Relax beside the fire in the cooler months or simply enjoy a well deserved lazy Spring morning with your favourite book and holiday soundtrack. The kitchen is fully fitted and thoughtfully equipped with the finest Denby china and modern appliances, the gable end kitchen window perfectly frames the sea view beyond the fields offering a jackpot backdrop to your dining at the kitchen bench with high stools. To the rear of the barn, the boutique style bedroom ensures a restful nights sleep and has been dressed to impress with luxury linens and stylish artwork that evokes the colours and character of the nearby coastline. The contemporary bathroom is no less considered with sleek black tiling and an indulgent walk in rain shower.

An enclosed grassed suntrap courtyard garden welcomes your favourite sundowner cocktail as the sun sets in the bay or choose to enjoy breakfast al fresco as you map out the days itinerary. The hamlet of Bollowal is packed with Cornish farm character, chat to the local farmers for advice on the best secret spots, meet the walkers as they head to the coast and share your West Cornwall stories. The local farm specialises in rare breed cows who can be seen enjoying the nearby neighbouring fields. If days on the beach are on the agenda then you are well placed to enjoy some of Cornwall's most beautiful gems including Cape Cornwall (0.3 miles) Cot Valley (0.3 miles) Sennen (3 miles) and Gwenver (2.7 miles). Cot Valley is certainly a Cornish secret as it runs down to the sea at Porth Nanven Cove with crystal clear swimming waters and white boulders, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just 10 minutes walk from Scilly Stack. The ancient town of St Just is approx 1 mile up the lane and has much to offer from country pub suppers to morning coffee within one of the cool artisan cafes. The golf club welcomes non-members and is within walking distance, what a way to enjoy the scenery. Further afield the quintessential fishing village of Mousehole is well worth a visit or head to the high cliffs and iconic Land's End. 

Scilly Stack comes highly recommended for couples looking to escape the pace of busy lives, reconnect and unwind within Cornish luxury.
