The Experience

Three separate living spaces and a dining room means everyone can spread out, two wood-burners keep it cosy, and on rainy stay-at-home days there’s no shortage of places to read a book or simply gaze at some lovely Cornish art. The kitchen is spacious and nicely laid out with loads of workspace: buy fish, lobster and crab from the fisherman by Porthchapel beach and eat at the big table together, or barbecue in the garden.

Below the house children can safely romp in the orchard and paddock and there are trees to climb, swings, trampoline and a climbing frame. The garden has colourful borders with cottage garden favourites in spring and summer and mature trees provide shade. Long summer days will be lovely here.

Stride out to discover iron age villages like Chysauster, bring bikes for quiet lanes, pack up a picnic and head to lovely Porthtowan beach (a 10-minute drive) for white sand, lots of rock pools at low tide and a good cafe.

The neighbourhood

Portreath, once a busy port, is the nearest village. It has its own beach popular with surfers. Join the coast path here and walk the seven miles to St Agnes, a bustling and lively village. There are fairly regular buses back but it takes an hour and a half. The National Trust's Godrevy is close for high cliff walks, a stunning beach with an excellent cafe, breeding birds and sometimes seals.

Sarah (who works in medicine regulation) and her family live in London. She is a keen gardener and collects Cornish art, mostly from the auction houses in Penzance. They love Cornwall and hope you'll feel relaxed and happy here, far from the stresses of city life.
