Step Inside

From the moment you arrive, this attractive stone Cornish cottage invites you to live like the locals and enjoy a very relaxed holiday within the peaceful setting. Open the door and step into the hub of the house, the open plan living and dining space complete with stone floor, inglenook fireplace and stylish decor with bursts of mustard yellows and coastal blues. This versatile space is as perfect for cosy winter stays and lazy summer days as holiday life flows. Lead through to the country kitchen and enjoy the rural views across the fields and moorland. With Cornwall firmly on the foodie map, you are never far from tempting ingredients including the freshest of fish straight off the boat in Newlyn. A family bathroom and spacious utility room (perfect for sandy toes and paws) completes the ground floor. A central open tred staircase leads to the first floor and collection of three charming cottage bedrooms. The master bedroom has been beautifully dressed in floral blues and creams and offers a private sit out balcony with sea views and spiral staircase down to the garden. Two further bedrooms each offers their own personality from the soft pinks of the twin to the blues of the king bedded room. A beautiful family bathroom is the perfect place to soak away the day in the free-standing bath. 

From your Holiday Door

The garden of Stonesthrow Cottage is just beautiful and offers a true taste of west Cornwall with granite walls bordering the patchwork of fields, blue sea views and rolling moorland. To the front of the house, sofas and chairs have been thoughtfully placed to capture the sun, the perfect place for a mornings coffee. From the kitchen, lead into the rear of the cottage with large wooden dining table with seating for all. Steps lead to the upper terrace with an indulgent bubbling hot tub sits offering sea views and collection of sun loungers for those oh so lazy days. Children and dogs alike will adore the sense of freedom as they wander safely from the garden into the fields and explore the 4 acres of land all enclosed by the granite walls. A picnic bench and seating has been set up within the field for al fresco dining amongst the flora and fauna of west Cornwall. The friendly neighbouring horses will surely pay you a daily visit popping their noses over the wall to say hello. From Stonesthrow Cottage you can access the SW coast path a mile away or over the Penwith moors from your doorstep.  Budding sea swimmers will love a dip in the local cove afterwards or make a dash to hit the surf at Sennen. The fascinating Cornish heritage is wonderful to explore including the mining sites at Levant mine and Geevor mine. This wonderful cottage is a fantastic base from which to explore the reaches of both Cape Cornwall and the entire Penwith Peninsula and its Poldark scenery. If days at the beach as part of the plan then you are well placed, choose from the stunning Portheras Beach (the nearest beach to the cottage) or explore Porthcurno, Lamorna, Penberth Coves and many more. There are a plethora of places to eat and refuel within the area including The Gurnards Head (well worth a reservation) Geevor Tin Mine Cafe, North Inn within the village and Queens Arms pub at Bottalack.

Wow! What a gorgeous house! We have had a wonderful week, some sun, some rain, but wonderful walks along the cliff to Pendeen Lighthouse, Lands End (saw dolphins!), Sennen, but mostly relaxed here in this cosy home, admiring the horses and the rainbow over the sea. Perfection, thank you so much.
