Sleek architectural design, warm-to-the-touch floors, splashes of bright colour; Ispoyntel is a modern take on a Cornish bolthole with lots of lovely glass, light, space and peace just a ten-minute stroll from the bustle of town.
For families or friends this swish L-shaped house is perfect, with the Tate Modern on the doorstep and the Hepworth Sculpture Gallery worth a wander. Dipping a toe is possible at four sandy beaches within walking distance (you’ll find buckets and spades at the house). Couples seeking a low-maintenance escape will relish the ease: no need to light log burners, plus a mainline train station a short stroll away if you want to forgo the car.
Leg-loosening walks stretch in all directions; ramble the six coastal miles to Zennor for crab sandwiches by the sea, or take to the moors. Evenings can be spent at a live music spot: the Kettle and Wink grooves almost every night.
