Penzance, Cornwall

3 country cottages with friendly, interesting owners on hand, in a profoundly peaceful spot between arty St Ives & stunning Marazion


4 beds


4 bedrooms


Sleeps 8


You get so much more than just three cottages here: a heated pool, a grass tennis court and lovely landscaped gardens to wander through. Raphaela and Kristofer live in the pretty Georgian house; Well Studio is opposite and has a double-height sitting room with a wood-burner belting out the heat. A door opens onto a private garden and patio area and, beyond, green fields and a river walk. The mezzanine bedroom looks down onto the sitting room and is light and airy with a comfy double bed, and a window onto woodland. The galley kitchen is small-ish but has all you need; the neat white bathroom is off here. Of the other two properties, one sleeps two, and the other sleeps four. Cake, logs, garden flowers, a chilled bottle of wine and robes for the pool await you. Walk to the branch line at St Erth station and you’re only a ten-minute train ride from arty St Ives, Penzance is a bit further in the other direction. Hit the beach, discover top-notch restaurants (your hosts are happy to book), stay put and lap up the peace in this utterly beautiful spot. A trio of great little boltholes.

A superb oasis in a perfect location close to many romantic coves, and attractions. The accommodation is great quality, but it's the pool and tennis court that made our stay so fun and relaxing, definitely recommend and Raffy's is a joy!
