Positively perfect for both small families and couples this colourful and characterful retreat is located deep in the picturesque countryside of West Cornwall. Filled with hues of red and orange, this pretty homestay is all on one level making it ideal for dogs and little ones, plus its open plan living area and gorgeous outdoor space (with hot tub!) invites you and your loved ones to spend quality time together in luxury.
Living and eating

Step through the front door and be welcomed by the warm and homely atmosphere. Beautiful oak wooden floors throughout the living and kitchen area, striking reclaimed wooden panelling, captivating original artwork and beautiful country views- this wonderful space is truly one-of-a-kind. The living area has some gorgeous pieces from its stunning feature window, unique vintage coffee table and toasty Morso woodburner. Nestle in for the evening on the sofa with your favourite film on and the woodburner roaring in the background.

The eye catching kitchen keeps in theme with the living area; the kitchen cabinets are cleverly cladded with the reclaimed artist studio floor boards which matches perfectly with grey granite worktops. Boasting an induction hob with oven, plenty of appliances and vibrant orange Le Creuset pieces, you will have all the tools you need to treat your family to a culinary masterpiece. Across from the kitchen is the glass topped wooden dining table with bespoke lights hanging from above, a red centre piece artwork on display and views through the window of the pretty landscaped front garden.

Sleeping

Sanctuary has two comfy and well-appointed bedrooms to choose from. The master bedroom boasts a super king size bed, delicate pale colours blended with hues of orange and wrap-around views of the countryside and front garden. The second bedroom can be made up as a twin or as super king, ideal for flexible sleeping arrangements. Open up the bedroom's outside door to let the Cornish breeze roll in whilst you enjoy a long lie-in or to allow the little ones to run free on the lush green lawn. Both bedrooms have unique rattan flooring, plenty of storage space and the owner's bespoke artwork throughout.

Bathing

The bedrooms share the modern and spacious family bathroom which has a large walk-in shower for two, as well as a deep bath with a handheld showerhead. The heated grey towel rail ensures your towels stay warm and fluffy.

There is an additional loo in the utility room, which is right next to the property which also has a washing machine, tumble drier, an extra fridge and an additional towel rail for drying beach gear - everything you could need for a family escape to Cornwall!

Outdoor space

Walk up the outside stairs and be greeted by a gorgeous outside space - completely private and decorated with interesting features like the huge granite boulders and green glass Japanese fishing floats intertwined with the wooden fence. The garden is made up of a lovely decking area which is home to a bubbling hot-tub, an outdoor dining table with chairs, two tempting sun loungers and a barbecue for those warm summer evenings. There is also a grass section adjacent to the decking which is ideal for the little ones and your four-legged friend to play in whilst you take a soak in the hot tub with a glass of wine.

To the front of the property, there is an open grass section which can be accessed from the driveway and from the second bedroom and is utterly perfect for picnics in the sunshine or for ball games with the whole family. Being hidden away in the Cornish countryside, you can enjoy utter peace and quiet and with nearly no light pollution here you can enjoy a sea of stars at night.

Babies

Sanctuary is baby friendly and there is a highchair, a baby bath and a travel cot for your little one's use on request. Please bring your own bedding for the cot.

Dogs

One medium dog or two small dogs are very welcome at Sanctuary. We charge £30 per dog per week or short break.

WiFi

Sanctuary has WiFi so if you need to stay in touch with the outside world you can.

Parking

There is parking at the front and at the rear of the property.

Larger parties

Dawnsmen next door offers additional accommodation for six people and can be booked in conjunction with Sanctuary if you're a bigger party (up to ten people). Separate enough to offer privacy, this is a great option for multi-generational groups, two families or large get-togethers. The large green glass-ball gates can be opened to offer easy access between the two properties.

In the Area

You'll be spoilt for things to do in this beautiful part of Cornwall. There are plenty of countryside walks to enjoy from Sanctuary as well as several beaches just a short drive away. Gorgeous Sennen is just one of many to mention and has the most stunning of beaches - a deep, massive swathe of golden sand lined with houses, shops and places to eat.

No trip to the far west would be complete without visiting the incredible Minack Theatre and Porthcurno beach. If you manage to catch a play, be ready to be wowed with the most spectacular backdrop (and they carry on whatever the weather, so be prepared!). If you can't make a show, you can still pay this iconic landmark a visit as it is open all day for visitors to look around. After exploring, you can climb down to the golden sands of Porthcurno beach.

The coastline from Mousehole via Sennen to St Ives is spectacular, so head for the South West Coast Path for some incredible walks and stunning vistas. There are delightful coves to explore nearby at Lamorna, St Loy and Penberth and dramatic cliff-top views all the way to Porthgwarra and Land's End. St Ives itself is an artistic and bustling seaside town and is home to the Tate, plus there are plenty of beaches, shops and places to eat. In summer, it's worth heading to Lelant for the park and ride, catching the train, which runs along the Hayle Estuary and coast, into the centre.

Centrally located near St Buryan, The Cottage is an excellent base from which to explore the ancient sites of West Penwith including, notably, megalithic stone circles of Boscawen-un and The Merry Maidens, Lanyon Quoit dolmen, and other standing stones such as The Pipers and Mên-an-Tol.
