Need a holiday? This little stone cottage in the Cornish countryside looks like the perfect spot for one.
The listing says, “Sweetpea Cottage sits in the hamlet of Kestle Mill, just a few miles from the wild surf and fine sands of Porth Beach on the beautiful north coast of Cornwall.”
Kahdine owns Sweetpea Cottage and says, “I fell in love with the property’s wonky walls, original beams and pretty cottage windows in an instant and knew it would make the perfect first home for my small family. Now I want other new parents and couples to enjoy the quirky charm of my Cornish chocolate-box home just like we did!”
The cottage’s style is described as “English country chic meets 50 shades of Farrow and Ball at this romantic abode chock-full with character. The neutral colour palate is charmingly personalised with the family’s collection of photography and curios.”
The listing says:
This luxury self-catering holiday cottage is as quaint as they come. Behind its old stone façade, Sweetpea Cottage flaunts a vintage glamour style with a sprinkling of the rough luxe, making it a sophisticated retreat for baby-friendly breaks and romantic escapes.
The light-filled country kitchen is well-equipped and boasts an impressive Bertazzoni Range Cooker with double electric ovens and a five burner gas hob.
After a day spent trekking the beaches on horseback, frolicking in the surf or rambling along the breath-taking coast path, a tranquil haven awaits on return to Sweetpea Cottage.
Pull the cork on a good bottle of wine and cook up a hearty supper to enjoy beneath the soft glow of the chandelier. Curl up in the antique armchair by the inglenook fire and discover more about the local history through reading tales of the Cornish smugglers who once frequented the coves nearby.
The enclosed walled garden plays host to a mix of topiary and soft planting against a chalky backdrop of shutterboard cladding to create a design typical of a manicured Chelsea roof garden, setting the scene for sophisticated al fresco dining and sunshine reclining.
There’s something about the “wonkiness” of the windows in the front of the cottage that endears it to me even more. It looks like a cottage a child might draw or something, doesn’t it? 🙂
Thanks to Unique Home Stays for telling me about this house.
