Located in the small hamlet of Bohortha close to St Anthony headland on the Roseland peninsula, The Thatchings has everything you could want from this chocolate box Cornish cottage. From its tidy thatched roof and pretty stone façade to the original beams, low ceilings and original character, this delightful Grade II Listed cottage combines traditional features with an infusion of luxury and all the modern comforts you could ask for.
Follow the path to the pretty porch and step inside, on one side of the hallway is the sitting-room, furnished with gorgeous sofas, perfect for sinking into after a day out exploring. Spend some time with your favourite book or chatting over the places you've visited that day and the plans for tomorrow. On the other side of the cottage, you will find the cosy dining-room and stylish well-equipped kitchen, whether you like to cook or prefer to eat out on holiday, simply making a cuppa or creating a delicious feast for all to enjoy, this is a very pleasing space to spend time.
Pour a glass and take it outside, sit a while by the cottage, close your eyes and listen to the sounds around you, this spot is a real sun-trap in the spring and summer so don't forget your hat! Follow the pathway past the neighbouring cottages, climb the three steps at the end of the garden and turn left, here you will find a second secret enclosed garden, with mature trees and shrubs giving you shade when you need sanctuary from the sun. There is a large, enclosed lawn here so any children in the party have plenty of space to run around and let off steam. Take the steps up to your private raised deck 'Lookout' this has been perfectly positioned to really make the most of the wonderful sea views which extend over to Falmouth and as far down as the Lizard peninsula, you can sit and watch the sunrise and sunset from this truly special spot.
When it's time to retire, head up the cottage stairs and choose from one of the two lovely bedrooms, both accessed up a further step on the very typical, split-landing. Bedroom one features the rather gorgeous French-style wooden bed, king-size and dressed in crisp white linens and comfy pillows. This pretty and spacious bedroom is a relaxing haven with views over the garden. The second bedroom, with a panelled wall, is a flexible resting space either as two single beds or a super-king size double (simply select your preference at the time of booking). The shower-room is located on the ground floor, ideal for washing off the salt water after a day on the beach.
The Thatchings is one of the prettiest cottages in St Anthony and it is simply perfect for that Cornish escape you've been planning all year.
St Anthony, unlike its near neighbour St Mawes, is a quiet hidden gem on the Roseland peninsula, explore the ancient church, an early example of Gothic restoration standing on the site of Place Manor. Discover the beauty of this area by foot and get close to St Anthony's lighthouse, featured in Fraggle Rock, or take a longer walk to visit Towan and Molunan Beaches stopping off at the Thirstea Co beach cafe for a morning coffee then carrying on to Froe along the Percuil River where the views across to St Mawes are simply spectacular. Catch the small ferry from Place over to St Mawes to find good restaurants, independent shops and art galleries, you can also catch the larger ferry from here across to the maritime town of Falmouth. Your nearest village of Portscatho is two miles away, a picturesque and unspoilt fishing village with a fine sandy beach, well stocked village shop and tasty local produce to enjoy in the two excellent pubs and cafe.
