With St Ives and Porthleven just a few miles away in either direction, this romantic luxury self-catering cottage in Cornwall is a perfect escape for those seeking to explore whilst also offering somewhere peaceful and relaxing to return to at the end of the day.

Walk up the steps past the very pretty Magnolia tree and you'll find a warm welcome through the front door. This lovingly converted 15th century Grade II-listed granite barn is beautifully restored with whitewashed granite stone walls and furnishings in soft greens and creams. The layout is reversed so the living area is upstairs with gorgeous warm wooden floors, a big sofa ideally placed near the wood burner (perfect for snuggling up on a winter night), pouf, high backed chair and a good sized television for cosy film nights.


You'll find the petite yet perfect kitchen upstairs too - with ceramic hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge-freezer and dishwasher, there's all you need to put together a delicious meal (maybe some excellent seafood, freshly caught and bought straight off the boat). There's a dainty table pour deux in the living area for romantic meals. Or meander outside on warmer days and take your meals al fresco in your own private courtyard.


The quiet and spacious bedroom is on the ground floor, king-sized bed bedecked with luscious linens, throws and cushions. French windows lead outside - perfect for a deep breath of super-fresh morning air. The room also boasts a beautiful antique armchair upholstered with an Mark Hearld design.


The en suite has a bath with shower, luxurious towels and toiletries - perfect for a soak after a day of exploring, or just as a pick-me-up on balmy evenings.


There is a washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, TV, DVD player, CD player and BBQ.

Courtyard Garden

You have your own private sunny courtyard plus two and a half acres of very pretty shared gardens - perfect for taking a leisurely breakfast, a barbecue or maybe a G&T or two on a summer's evening (we recommend Curio Gin, produced locally in Mullion - yum). With tucked away sitting areas and a plethora of rolling countryside views, you'll easily find a quiet spot to read a book (or snooze) for an hour or two. Don't be surprised to find the odd wandering hen, cat or dog come across your path - it's all part of the countryside charm!


There is parking for a car close to the cottage.


Gilliflower has WiFi, so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.


One well-behaved dog is welcome. We charge £35 per dog per week or short break. Please note the courtyard isn't enclosed and dogs are to be on a lead at all times whilst in the grounds and gardens.
