A divine luxury, thatched cottage set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on Coverack Headland, this is a charmingly chic and elegantly furnished, classic Cornish cottage. Sitting on a spectacular and enviably secluded position, Chynhalls Farm House has picturesque views and beaches on its doorstep. The property is a wonderful, eclectic mix of traditional and modern and every detail has been lavished upon.
This gorgeous sanctuary offers a spacious and calming retreat which has been lovingly restored by the owner, paying homage to the original features such as open fireplaces, beamed ceilings and of course the incredible thatched roof. Entering the house via the sheltered and sunny courtyard through the small porched front door, you will be met by the light but cosy living area which leads on to a maze of charming rooms and spaces.
The enchanting, sea blue snug offers a hideaway to snuggle down with your favourite book or perhaps a film night - both living spaces have wonderful outlooks over Coverack and beyond.
The kitchen, separated from the living area by a marble stoned hall and pantry, is light and airy and everything you'd expect from a traditional cottage kitchen. The pantry has plenty of space - perfect for keeping the champagne cool on the wide, slate shelves. The country marbled stone floor opens out to a slate-shelved, window side worktop and a hand-built oak kitchen, with many modern touches. The Aga is bolstered by the modern Bosch oven and Samsung hob, along with a Bosch dishwasher, large family fridge/freezer and washing machine/drier.
Leading through to the long hall dining-room which looks out over the pretty courtyard, this high beamed room provides a tranquil space for breakfast or perhaps an atmospheric candlelit supper. There is plenty of additional living space in the conservatory too, which has a sublime view out to sea - it's as perfect for summer evenings as it is for winter days, or to have a little peace and quiet hidden away from the rest of the house.
Wooden decking wraps around the front of the house, facing the outstanding 270 degree panoramic vista of the sea and on to Coverack harbour… perfect for immersing yourself in the sounds of silence and sunshine, and watching the boats sail by.
Your only neighbours are from the small caravan park behind the cottage which is open from April 2021.
There are four sumptuous bedrooms to choose from, three bedrooms on the first floor with two king-size and one double bed, which all ooze luxury and comfort - there is eclectic detail from antique French beds to Indian decor and Turkish lights, it really is wonderful. The main bedroom has sea views which you will never tire of.
The bedroom on the ground floor has a single bed and a walk in Wet-room. The uniquely decorated downstairs Bathroom, also on the ground floor, is tiled with little white pebbles from floor to ceiling with a large bath and reclaimed oak vanity worktop.
Outside there is a tranquil courtyard garden which is a lovely little suntrap - a real hidden gem and what a spot to sit with a good book. The decking has unrivalled views over Coverack and beyond, sit down with a G&T and watch the world go by. There is also a large open garden which is left unfenced to give the true feeling of space so please do take care with the little ones.
The coast path is right outside your front door which heads down to Coverack harbour on your left, and to your right, to a gorgeous little sandy cove. A footpath flows through an enchanted course of woodland, across a little stream and on to the hidden sculpture garden with views out over the sea to Coverack Headland.
Coverack village has lots on offer including a sandy beach at low tide, a pub, village shop and most importantly, fish and chips and the famous Roskillys' ice cream.
