The
Experience

Turn off the road down a bumpy lane until you reach the very last house, a weather-boarded seaside cottage of postcard perfection. You’re surrounded by fields of cows and buttercups – it’s alive with birdsong and you can smell the sea on the wind.

Inside, the calming, tongue-and-groove lined spaces allude to artist owner Annie’s childhood on the Norwegian coast – the lovely kitchen is a great place to gather for meals. Annie’s artworks hang on walls and the quality of light in the enclosed veranda makes it a grand spot for staring out over the hills.

A proper plantsman’s garden is a joy, its series of secret spaces providing endless options for dens and kickabouts as well as sundowners by the summerhouse. The immediate area is steeped in magic – it’s a fifteen-minute stomp along to Tintagel Castle and the cove containing Merlin’s Cave.

Local points of interest from Annie Meier

  • Seaside cottage, only a 1 minute stroll from the sea and south west coast path. Set on it's own down a track which only allows access to the coastguard and to the occasional farmer accessing the surrounding fields.
  • Tranquil and stunning 1/2 acre sheltered clifftop garden with a perfect sunny patio and BBQ for outside dining. A great garden for children to play in and create dens- and also to play in the summerhouse!
  • A 15 minute walk to stunning and secluded Bossiney Cove (a wonderful hidden gem) and a 15 minute walk along the coast to Tintagel Castle and the Cove beneath. Also a 10 minute drive to Trebarwith strand, excellent for surfing and very family friendly.
  • A very easy short dash into Tintagel to stock up at the local Butchers, Deli and Greengrocers.
  • The cottage is fully kitted out with a huge kitchen dining area, which leads through glass doors onto a lovely patio surrounded by plants and wildlife. There is also a lovely sitting room with 2 large sofa's and an open fire.
  • The cottage has a lots of Books, games, local guides and maps and DVD's for your use.

Introducing
