Utterly charming from the outset, The Mews began life as a humble cowshed and is now a beautifully converted luxury holiday cottage that sits in a quiet, rural setting on the northern coast of Cornwall. Hidden down a little country lane in the small hamlet of Tresean, this home is an amble away from the golden sands of Holywell Bay and Crantock beach and within a mere ten minute drive of the vibrant town of Newquay.
Set over two floors, the cottage is arranged with its sleeping and bathing on the ground floor and the living/entertainment space upstairs. Comfortable and spacious, both bedrooms feature elegant metal framed beds, crisp white linen and ample storage space, with the modern family bathroom easily accessible to both rooms, and fitted with a large shower cubicle and rainfall shower head.
Upstairs, individual pieces of furniture lend an authentic essence to the living room where a huge sinkable sofa tempts afternoon naps and languid evenings in front of the log burner. The high apex ceiling and overhead windows flood the room with sunlight so that even on wintry days the room feels bright and welcoming.
Open plan indoor/outdoor living combine beautifully where the kitchen and dining area open out on to a fantastic private terrace, the perfect place to enjoy a barbecue or a bottle of bubbly, and a fabulous enclosed garden means more time spent outside, soaking up the Cornish sun or enjoying a breath of fresh, countryside air.
Decorative timber beams and accents of metallic silver create a chic edge to the wonderfully social, contemporary kitchen which is amply equipped for whipping up a few culinary classics, and a large dining table with seating makes the ideal place to exchange the day’s anecdotes while enjoying a fabulous meal together.
For those guests travelling with four-legged friends in tow, there are lots of dog-friendly beaches within close proximity of the cottage including Crantock Beach that permits dogs off leads all year round. A variety of cycle routes, walking paths and surrounding villages in the area mean plenty of opportunity for exploring the beautiful landscape.
