High above the cliffs at Rinsey, Candlelight Cottage is the ideal location from which to explore this spectacular Cornish coastline and with sea views from its enclosed garden, what better way to end the day than with an al fresco meal as the sun sets.

Offering home-from-home comforts throughout, this spacious, modern, dog-friendly cottage features a roaring wood-burner in the large ground floor sitting-room, flanked by leather sofas. The ideal spot to relax with family and friends after a hearty stroll along the nearby coastal paths.

Children will love the downstairs snug – full of books and games to entertain the whole family – whilst the kitchen/diner boasts a farmhouse kitchen table, range cooker and all mod-cons.

Upstairs, two of the three bedrooms have en suite shower-rooms and enjoy sea views, and all three are spacious and airy with comfortable double beds and luxurious linens. Sleep plenty and enjoy the elements at this lovely detached cottage.

Rinsey is a quiet coastal hamlet on the outskirts of Porthleven, a beautiful harbour town with many restaurants, galleries and two harbourside pubs. An amble along the cliffs will get you there, however if you want to explore St Ives and Marazion, with St Michael's Mount, these are within easy driving distance so pop the family in the car and head to these magical spots.

Candlelight Cottage is a shining beacon…the sort of place that makes you want to wax lyrical!
