Boasting two pubs, a butcher, and two grocers, St Day is a thriving, friendly Cornish village only a few minutes' drive from the sandy beaches at Porthtowan and Portreath. A self-contained annexe to the owners' home at the edge of the village, this delightful retreat is stylishly furnished with complementary accent colours, harmonising with soft neutral shades.
Upstairs is the light-filled living-room, with a compact but well-equipped kitchen-area (beware the sloping ceiling!) and glass doors with a Juliet balcony framing the wonderful countryside views. The two bedrooms are downstairs, the double with a sunny conservatory opening out to the south-facing small enclosed private garden.
The Coast to Coast cycle tramway is nearby, so Trelyn’s porchway to the front of the cottage comes in very handy for storing bikes as well as surfboards. For those who wish to explore a little further afield, Perranporth, Truro, Falmouth, and picturesque St Ives are all within easy reach.
