7 Nights from  £351

The perfect retreat for walkers and couples, this compact semi-detached cottage is set on a steep wooded lane which is a three minute walk to Carbis Bay beach and its amenities.

Formerly a miner’s cottage, Tintin Cottage has a comfortable sitting/dining-room with an open fire, and a little kitchen where polished oak stairs lead up to the bedroom and shower-room. Outside, stone steps lead up to a sheltered decked rear terrace – ideal for a morning coffee and a croissant.

Although Tintin Cottage cannot be accessed by car due to the steep narrow path, private parking is available at Sandpiper, a steep 200 yard walk away.

The walks from the property are abundant, in almost any direction. The seaside town of St Ives is along the cliffs; here guests will discover a wonderful selection of galleries, shops and restaurants, the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden and the Tate St Ives, as well as a picturesque harbour and fabulous beaches.
