The perfect retreat for couples, this cosy converted semi-detached former tin miner's cottage is set on a wooded lane, which is a three minute walk to the gorgeous sandy beach of Carbis Bay. Spend many a carefree day here enjoying all the amenities that this upmarket beach now has to offer.
Tintin Cottage has a snug sitting/dining-room with an open fire adjoining a small kitchen, where polished oak stairs lead up to the bedroom and shower-room. Outside, stone steps take you a secluded and sheltered decked-area that is an ideal sun-trap and perfectly private for a morning coffee and croissant.
The seaside town of St Ives is a five minute drive or 40 minute walk along the cliffs. Here guests can discover a selection of galleries, shops and restaurants, as well as a picturesque harbour and fabulous beaches. The Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden and the Tate St Ives are both worth a visit too.
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.
