Uncover our woodland retreat of dreams settled within an untamed corner of Gweek's patchwork landscape, where an ethereal adventure awaits for romance seekers and solo travellers. Pairing an imaginative use of granites, coppers, and timbers with an alluring combination of deep forest greens and earthy tones, Lowartha promises a bewitching woodland sanctuary kindred to Cornwall's landscape. Designed to create the illusion of off-grid, outdoor living with floor-to-ceiling picture windows and wood-clad spaces, every corner of our luxury hideout has been carefully curated with nature in mind. Residing off the beaten path on the fringes of Gweek, Lowartha is perfectly placed for honeymoon escapes and solitary trips uncovering the wild beauty of Cornwall's country and coast. From enchanting bubble-topped soaks in the copper bathtub to moonlit dips in the wood-fired hot tub - flee the ordinary to our secluded dreamworld, where soulful escapism exists amongst the trees.

Larger parties

For those looking to escape with larger parties for unrivalled solitude, close by is Melynsy, which welcomes eight guests. If you wish to book both, you can find Melynsy here or call us for more information.

Living and eating

Step inside to uncover the captivating open-plan living, dining and kitchen space, where a reverse-living approach gives the feeling of existing in your very own treetop hideaway. Adorned with earthen materials, natural textiles and jewel-rich, green and copper hues, this space promises untold cosiness in all seasons.

Resting adjacent to a contemporary wood burning stove is a Swyft velvet sofa with a complementing footstool, whilst a tan leather occasional chair perches beside the window. Sleek sliding doors open out to a gorgeous balcony space, where you'll find a pair of outdoor chairs - an ethereal setting to admire woodland melodies.

At the opposite end of this space lies the sumptuous kitchen, divided from the living area with a stylish breakfast far feature. Setting the mood for romantic indoor dining is the marble-topped table for two, where a black leather window seat is the perfect viewpoint.

Everything you could need for rustling up feasts is on hand in this luxurious space, including an induction hob, fridge-freezer, a dishwasher, and a Nespresso Vertuo coffee machine. A washer-dryer can be found in the utility shed.

For staycation entertainment, you'll find Bluetooth speakers and a Smart TV.

Sleeping and bathing

Follow the red-bricked, turret-style spiral staircase down to discover the cabin-style master bedroom of dreams, where reclaimed timber-cladding creates endless rustic charm. A super-king-sized bed topped with soft linen tempts for breakfast in bed, whilst an occasional armchair rests beside a full-height window - a cosy nook made for a little light reading. Perfectly framed by granite walls is the copper bathtub, a bewitching spot to indulge in the divine woodland backdrop with low lighting and a soulful soundtrack. For storing your belongings, there are two bedside tables and a large built-in wardrobe.

Hidden behind a sliding door is the gorgeous en suite bathroom, filled with copper accents and bespoke wood finishes. Here you'll find a spacious, walk-in rainfall shower calling for rejuvenating wake-up moments.

Outdoor space

Lowartha's wildly dreamy two-acre garden is the perfect tonic to soothe wanderlust souls, with a meandering stream, feature pond and quirky bridge promising a secluded, fairytale setting. Adjacent to the bedroom is the patio, where a table with two chairs rests for morning lattes alfresco. Nestled a little further into the foliage is the secret cedar clad hot tub - a captivating setting for golden hour conversation with a glass in hand. You'll also find another table with chairs, two loungers, and a Weber barbeque for use in the summer months.

Please note, that while the garden is not dog-proof, a short wander takes you to the woodland garden where dogs can be taken off-lead.


You will find private parking for up to five cars at Melynsy with access to an electric car charging point.

Secret Beaches in Cornwall

Cornwall is adored for its coastline, decorated with secret beaches and secluded coves at the foot of quiet hamlets and hidden between lofty cliffs.

Combine the luxuries of a good hotel with the suit-yourself dynamic of self-catering.

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Lowartha:

Lowartha is a little slice of heaven. The views of the trees from the house are simply breathtaking and so are the grounds surrounding the property. It was like going to a retreat, we especially enjoyed the relaxing noise of the river and looking at the starts from the hot tub at night. Everything inside and out feels luxurious and we wanted for nothing. Probably the best house we’ve ever stayed at in the UK! Everything was just perfect, thank you for having us. We are already planning our return trip!

Lowartha is full of magic and we cannot express how much we enjoyed this sanctuary in sufficient words. The woodland gardens and planting are sublime. Watching the local bird of prey do her rounds from the hot tub at twilight was heavenly. This is not a place you use as a base to explore; this is the place you explore. We cannot wait to come back.

Lowartha is a beautiful place to stay. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet. Kim was very helpful. We had a great honeymoon staying in this beautiful house.

We had the most amazing week in Cornwall in October, the house and location exceeded our expectation's. The ultimate place to get away from it all with absolutely everything you could need at the house and an incredible welcome pack from the host.

We enjoyed the hot tub, relaxing to the sound of running water from the stream. Warming up by the fire after long walks on the coast and watching all of the fantastic nature through the windows. Waking up to squirrels was a real highlight for us and the dogs!

The local village shop is adorable and has such a good variety of local produce. There’s also SO many incredible foodie spots locally and plenty of dog friendly beaches to spend your mornings exploring.

We booked Home Spa Cornwall, who deliver spa services to your holiday let - couldn’t recommend this more and the setting of the house is perfect for a spa treatment!

We can’t wait to book again and would love to come back to stay in different seasons! But as cosy autumnal stays go - I don’t think you can beat this one!

The host Kim is fab and happy to help with any request.

The property and setting couldn’t have been more perfect. We were blessed with mostly fine late September weather but the rainy days were just as nice because the property is so cosy, beautifully decorated and equipped. So many reading spots looking out on to wild but managed Cornish woodland. We relaxed the minute we arrived and didn’t want to leave.

Could not believe how impressed we were this retreat. Took our breath away as we pulled up and parked, surpassed expectation on every level. Stream running through garden and woods attached, perfect for dogs and to walk through. Hot tub ready with fire as we arrived, drained and refilled for every stay. Beautifully laid out house, well fitted kitchen, every extra you could think of included. Fresh bread, milk, butter, coffee and even a bottle of wine in the fridge. You feel as if you’re miles from anywhere nestled in the woods, the perfect relaxing getaway, can’t wait to book again. Met Kim as we left as were running late and she couldn’t have been any kinder or more helpful. Clearly very hands on and involved as she was cleaning the hot tub as we pulled away. 10/10. Could not fault.

If you are looking for just a base for your Cornwall trip, Lowartha is not for you! It’s so much more! It’s a place where you want to spend time! We were blown away from the minute we arrived! Set in mature private woodland, with its clever design, home comforts and beautiful interior, we just didn’t want to leave! So peaceful, waking only to birdsong and settling down for the evening with only the beautiful sound of owls cutting the peaceful night. The wood fire hot tub was a real treat and the perfect ending to a day spent exploring. We stumbled across a real gem when we came across Lowartha and already planning our return! Hope

Beautiful peaceful location very thoughtfully put together place made for dreamy relaxing retreat
