Tucked away on the south coast and close to the Devonshire border, this little-known corner of Cornwall offers spectacular scenery alongside a tranquillity not usually found in the south west. Sealight is a beautifully bijoux retreat perched on the cliffs of Whitsand Bay, calmly reflecting the ocean in its beautiful whiteness. Serenely white on the inside and wooden-clad on the outside, with a sunny deck for whiling away an afternoon or two and a footpath to the beach on your doorstep, this is the retreat to head to when you want a complete break.
This is a petitely perfect pad, with the living area tucked to the right of the main space. An oatmeal-coloured sofa nestles close to the beautifully black wood burner - a pleasing contrast to the white wood-clad walls. Subtle lighting adds an extra chilled ambience of an evening as well. There's a television too if you fancy snuggling up with a good film on a blustery night. Huge windows make the most of the stunning sea views whilst they also slide back to bring the outside in. A honey-coloured wooden decking area is perfect for lounging, complete with two reclining chairs, swinging chair/hammock (built for two), whilst the neat hedges offer privacy - perfect! There's an outside shower too to wash the sand off after a day at the beach.
The kitchen, tucked away to the left of the living space, is great for a beach house. Ideal for rustling up a romantic seafood supper, its complete with everything you need, including a Dualit toaster and kettle, carrying on the white minimalist feel of the retreat. A cute table for two can be found nearby, set up so you can both enjoy the view over a bottle of something sparkling whilst being small enough to play footsy underneath the table...
The bedroom is fabulously simple, a petite love den tucked away out back so cool in summer and cosy in winter. Resplendent with cushions, the bed is super-comfy and boasts pretty artwork, fab lighting, hanging space and a floor-to-ceiling mirror.
There's a shower for two (of course!) with oodles of hot water and a heated towel rail so you'll soon be toasty warm after a bracing cliff top walk.
Sealight has broadband so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.
One dog is welcome at Sealight. We charge £30 per week or short break.
There is parking available a short walk from retreat.
