If escapism is required, then Reservoir Cottage will not disappoint. Nestled in the Cornish countryside, only a mile away from the bustling harbour of St Ives and its many sandy beaches, this home in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, now known as a National Landscape, offers guests not only privacy, but also views of rolling hills and ancient settlements.

This home-from-home has been lovingly restored by its creative owner with subtle interior flair complementing its Art Nouveau charm. The luxurious retreat has two living areas, the cosy snug, an intimate space with warm lighting and an ornate ornamental fireplace being the focus of this sweet space. The large sun-room with its wraparound slate deck is a bright, airy place with wall to ceiling glass that offers uninterrupted views of the countryside. The modern decor with plush sofas perfect for lounging and socialising. A quality crafted kitchen, so beautifully presented, features a huge range to delight any inspiring chef and there is a large larder cupboard in the hallway.

The dining-area is a social and cosy space, with its old Rayburn still in situ and has an espresso machine for coffee lovers. The walls are adorned with carefully selected artwork and if you look more closely there are two Cornish piskies so don't forget to pay your respects to the Cornish folklore as they offer good luck and goodwill. Many great holiday memories will be made around the dining-table whilst feasting on local produce.

The huge family bathroom is on this floor with claw-footed free-standing bath and separate 'rain style' power shower, making this a perfect place to relax and refresh after your day out and about.

Upstairs the cottage has three luxurious bedrooms, all dressed in sumptuous crisp linens and enjoying heavenly views of nature at its best. One with a king-size wrought iron four-poster bed and feature fireplace, a cosy beautifully decorated double room and a sweet smaller third bedroom with bunk-beds. A fully fitted wet-room cleverly designed to maximise space completes this floor.

Surrounded by lush green gardens full of wildflowers, bees and butterflies, the owners have created a feeling of space without boundaries. The outdoor seating area, complete with fire-pit, offers an intimate space to roast marshmallows with the ones you love, whilst soaking up the sunshine or sitting out late into the evening under the night sky. Enjoy meals al fresco whilst listening to the relaxing sounds of the trickling water coming from the nearby reservoir. A balcony leading from the spacious sun-room with modern loungers, is an idyllic space to take your morning coffee and plan the day's adventures.

Reservoir Cottage offers a perfect location for delightful walks with your dog on the waterside trails and lush countryside paths found right on the doorstep.

Reservoir Cottage is a truly special place to discover west Cornwall, an area designed to celebrate local culture, artistry and heritage. All a short drive away; St Ives has an eclectic art scene so a visit to the Barbara Hepworth Museum or the Tate Gallery is a must. Passing through the busy harbour in Newlyn, do stop to buy the freshest catch of the day. Carry on to Mousehole with its historic character, a great place to stop with a bucket and spade.

Visit Marazion for ancient St Michael's Mount just across the causeway, remembering to check the tide times! Visit an open air theatre under the stars, The Minack, take at picnic to eat on the outstanding beach at Porthcurno before an evening of drama or song with the ever-changing sea below.
