Rural seclusion, peace and quiet, a truly tranquil haven – this stylish hideaway lies just a short drive from St Ives, both north and south coasts, and is perfect respite from hectic everyday life. The long unmade farm lane leading into the valley where the cottage nestles is very bumpy in places, however is the slow, careful descent worthwhile? Absolutely! And there to welcome you at Chynoweth will be Max, the owners’ friendly Dalmatian. Steps lead down from the parking-area to your private, sunny patio and the five acre garden next door is also there for you to enjoy. Inside, the cottage has slate floors, a contemporary kitchen, a romantic iron bedstead and two big comfy sofas facing the wood-burner.
