Tucked away in the countryside in the far west of Cornwall, Kildenna is a beautiful, traditional Cornish cottage with two beautiful bedrooms, lush gardens and fabulous vintage interiors. Set on a working family farm, close to Hayle, Gwithian and St Ives, this fabulous homestay is perfect for couples and families alike, being ideally situated to easily reach the most splendid parts of Cornwall. Step inside and you'll discover a beautifully restored cottage complete with interiors deeply rooted to Kildenna's heritage, with antique furniture throughout including an astonishing four poster bed and original feature fireplace - a truly remarkable cottage for your perfect Cornish getaway.


The snug sitting room is just lovely, and the perfect space to retire to at the end of a busy day exploring the far west of Cornwall. With dark beams, plush sofas and ornate feature fireplace, this is a gorgeously sumptuous room, where pale, calming colours contrast beautifully with the dark wood and fireplace. Beautifully complimented by antique artwork, there's also a Smart TV for cosy nights in when you want to catch up on your favourite film or box set.


The kitchen and dining room are semi open plan, creating a wonderful space for convivial entertaining.

The welcoming country-style kitchen has warm wooden worktops, a double butler's sink, electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer, separate wine fridge, washing machine and all the other essentials including the all-important Nespresso coffee machine. Dual aspect windows mean this is a light, bright space in which to rustle up meals for your loved ones - just perfect!

The dining room is a wonderful space with beamed ceilings, dual aspect windows, antique dining table with accompanying ornate bench and chairs, plus a huge dresser filled with all the tableware you could possibly need for breakfasts, lunches, and dinners.

Sleeping and bathing

There are two stunning bedrooms to choose from.

Bedroom one has dual aspect windows making this a beautifully bright room. The super king-sized bed is a zip-and-link, meaning it can be split in to twin beds if required - perfect for friends or children. This room also has a dressing table, chest of drawers and an impressive antique wardrobe. The family shower room is next door to the bedroom.

Bedroom two has an en-suite and boasts an oh-so-romantic antique four poster double bed, with views over the garden and an accompanying antique dressing table with gorgeous marble topper. The en-suite is a shower room.

Outdoor space

Kildenna boasts a pretty cottage garden to call your very own. Tree-lined and lovely, the large lawned garden is just perfect for games, whilst the leafy boughs offer shady respite on a hot summer's day. Amongst the mature borders dotted with camellias (just lovely in early spring), there's a dining table for alfresco eating, whilst the fire pit is the perfect place to gather on a starlit evening to toast marshmallows on the fire and sip on hot toddies.


Kildenna has private, off-road parking for up to three cars.

Babies and children

Babies and children are most welcome at Kildenna. A travel cot can be provided on request.


As there is livestock on the farm, Kildenna is one of our pet free properties.

In the Area

Set perfectly between the north and south Cornish coast, Kildenna is wonderfully situated to explore the very best of the far west of Cornwall and beyond. Nestled in the countryside just a couple of miles from Hayle, it's ideally situated to make the most of incredible sandy beach of Gwithian, whilst St Ives is just a very short drive away with its excellent beaches, fab shops and host of eateries. Hayle itself is a wonderful town and its estuary is an impressive RSPB reserve, being home to many wild water birds. Head further west and drive from St Ives to Sennen via Zennor, an incredible coastal road with epic views and home to The Gurnard's Head, an ancient inn serving excellent food. Head to the south coast for St Michael's Mount, Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole, whilst if you drive to the east the Lizard Peninsula, St Agnes, and Falmouth are all worth a visit.

This charming, traditional, country cottage is perfectly situated to easily reach both the South and North Cornish coastline, affording the best of both worlds!

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

We booked a week as a family and found a wonderful "home away from home". Our 5 year old boy had the entire garden to cycle, explore. He spend hours by the stream just playing in the water and exploring. The owners are lovely and made us feel very welcome while giving us our space at all times.

The cottage has a heart-warming story and presence to it. The cottage is high-standard. The appliances are of high-grade (though the freezer is exceptionally small). So a family planning a week's stay needs to ensure they are not too reliant on frozen food.

The cottage offers a BBQ, firepit to cater to a fun time as a family.

We enjoyed our time so much that we booked again even before we completed our holiday. Highly recommend.
