Small but characterful, this listed tin streamer’s cottage is a lovely little bolthole. Feel yourself unwind as you swoop along the fabulous coast road, voted the UK’s most scenic. Stennack is part of a row of cottages looking out over fields to the coast and you’re half a mile from lovely Pendeen for supplies. The stone porch opens into a light-filled living room decked in neutrals and a splash of colour. A cream sofa and armchair clustered around the granite inglenook’s wood-burning stove keeps it all snug, and there’s just room for a dining table and chairs. The kitchen – washer uppers get the view! – is compact and well-stocked, with an electric oven and hob, and Sonia (whose clever pottery is dotted about) leaves you cake. Upstairs to a double and sweet single, both dressed in white cotton linen with good mattresses, down pillows and old pine chests. There’s a tiny white-tiled shower room between them. Take tea in the delightful, sheltered garden surrounded by cottage garden favourites, listen to the stream burbling on the other side of the gate. Excellent walks to suit everyone radiate from the door.
