Teacup Cottage: A Romantic Moorland Bed & Breakfast

Teacup Cottage in Cornwall Holiday Rental

Welcome to Teacup Cottage in Cornwall. Doesn’t this look like a cozy place to spend a holiday? Unique Home Stays calls it a “sweet-as-pie unhosted moorland B&B that affords lovebirds a luxury hideaway, with the added benefit of a hand-delivered breakfast hamper crammed full of foodie delights.”

The cottage is located in Warleggan where you can enjoy “romantic moorland views.”

I was surprised by all the bright colors in the cottage.

The cottage has one bedroom and sleeps two.

However, “babes in arms and one small, well-behaved dog” are welcome, too.

“From the sumptuous king-size bed bedecked in crisp linens complete with dramatic velvet headboard to the Venetian mirror, eclectic artwork and book-reading corner, perfect for a little me-time; relax and recline in decadent comfort.”

    Toured a tiny Cotswolds cottage garden, asked the middle-aged couple who owned it how their marriage survived the tiny space.

    They laughed and asked, “Why do you think we garden?!”.

    Just read some of your older real estate listing posts, thanks for the laughs.

    I just google map this …its in the middle of nowhere ! but its still a cute cottage !

    Very cute. Sorry I hate to be negative, but……I love white, but this is SOOOO much white I would feel like I was staying in a cave carved from lime. They could have at least left the ceiling beams natural wood to warm it up. And maybe painted the ceiling some sort of blue.

    The curb appeal is really cool though.

  7. Elvira says

    What a charming cottage! It’s pocket size but enormous in style and colour. Ideal hideaway for two people wanting to get away from it all. I can imagine spending a few days there.

  8. Deb says

    Such a cute cottage! I do wonder about the bed, though… King-sized? Not sure…

  9. Gayle says

    Oh my. I am confused. Perfect & lovely on the outside. Beautiful features on the inside. I’m struggling with the decor because it overpowers the cute structure. Furniture & decor look cheap. I’m hoping it all comes together better in person.

    When can I move in permanently????? 😀 LOVE this little cottage. Trip’s family is from Cornwall (Treleaven is a Cornish name)…..Methinks we’re long overdue for a visit!

    GREAT post!

    The English often use the expression “cheap and cheerful,” Not sure if the emphasis in this case is on the cheap or on the cheerful, I am on the fence about all the bright colors and the sitting area rug, coffee table and the kitchen back splash just look cheap to me and not particularly cheerful.

    Still, I love cottages (my favorite kind of house!) and I always get excited when you have one to share with us, thanks!

    Quite simply the most wonderful cottage I’ve seen here to date! 😉

    My brother used to rent out a condo he owned on a golf course. You have no idea how much people steal and damage. If the decorations seem cheap, maybe they are, because if they are authentic and lovely, they do not stay.

  14. Dina says

    Love the exterior, but the Ikea furnishings would have me looking elsewhere. When I stay in place like that I want to sink into the shabby gentility of Jane Austen, not Barbie and Ken.

    Does it have the low low ceilings and doorways that make you duck your head when entering? Do you have to tilt your head sideways while indoors if you’re over 5 ft 8″ tall? I’ve been in these “cottages” and they make me feel like I am squeezing into a doll house!

    Having another look at this, and I just noticed the lamp bases in the bedroom are made out of cups and saucers!
