Peace & Plenty and Ring & Thimble

Cornwall, Britain

2 lovely cottages, eggs from the hens, and a BBQ, wellies and beach gear to borrow. Stroll to the shop, catch the branch line to St Ives..


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 6


A breadmaker for the kitchen, hand-made soaps for the bath, fresh eggs, home-grown vegetables, a barbecue for the beach and a cream tea on arrival – such is the attention to detail at these immaculate cottages on the edge of Penzance. The setting is remarkable: 25 acres of gardens, horses, ducks, hens, fields of daffs in spring, and a stroll to the village stores. Elizabeth fills the rooms with flowers, is passionate about sustainability, and runs a soft furnishings business – be prepared for unusually fine décor. Snowy white linen encases a big ironwork bed with a russet-red silk throw and tangerine cushions; pillows are top quality, carpets are thick underfoot. Living rooms are just as good – an upstairs room for Peace & Plenty, with polished floors, heritage colours and views from three windows; downstairs for charming thatched Ring & Thimble – the sort of room you cannot wait to cosy up in as the wood-burner is lit and darkness falls. Elizabeth extols the benefits of public transport so catch the scenic train to St Ives, then hop on the bus to Zennor – it’s the finest coastal route in all England!
