A Portscatho bungalow, a tiny house and a cottage - all bustling with arty flourishes and good taste just a short walk to the beach

‘Bungy without, Chatsworth within’ is Robert’s own mischievous description of the bungalow. Consider the lush sitting room: country-house sofas, portraits, fireplace, rugs, good furniture – framed at one end by a pair of pillars backed by giant swathes of fabric. Beyond are two gaily decorated and comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen is tiny, amusing, modern and ingenious. Next to it is the brightly decorated diner-conservatory giving extra space. Penvar is a tiny two-up/two-down in a row of them. But you step into an Aladdin’s cave of good taste, good old furniture mixed with modern, whacky design ideas and sheer exuberance. The front room is small but perfectly formed. The back room is tiny, the kitchen fitted ingeniously into every corner and the cooker built into the old kitchen table.   Upstairs is a huge bed in a small room over the street, and an excellent bathroom. Kinpol is just about big enough for two to play house (romantics will be happy), with bedroom views to the church and a little patio garden. Walk to the lovely beach for a shivery swim, warm up in good pubs, jump on tiny ferries. Not for the uncurious.
