Tucked away above the golden sands of Trevaunance Cove, our cosy Cornish bolthole is perfect for couples and solo travellers looking to escape to the wilds of North Cornwall. Small but perfectly formed, step inside to uncover our dreamy oceanside nook, where soft hues and natural décor marry together to create a tranquil setting in which to repose. A cosy wood burning stove and oh-so-comfy sofa promise snug romantic evenings, while the rooftop terrace offers couples a balmy place to watch the tides roll in and out. The pretty village of St Agnes is full of charming cafés, pubs, and restaurants where you can sit back and savour the sights and sounds of the ocean before returning to your luxury hideout for magical staycation moments.


Nori boasts a delightfully clever approach to open plan living, with the living room carefully separated from the kitchen with a table for two, allowing you to make the most of the welcoming space. Light sweeps in through the sliding French doors, skylight, and windows, which look out across the reaching cliffs, golden sands, and turquoise waters of Trevaunance Cove, creating a beautifully airy setting. The stone-hued, double linen sofa is bedecked with deliciously plump cushions, providing a heavenly place to curl up in the evenings. The coffee table, made from a remarkable vintage military chest, can't help but draw the eye, while reclaimed wood side tables provide plenty of space to rest your coffee as you delve into your current page-turner. Snug moments await beside the sleek wood burning stove, which is ready to fill the room with toasty warmth and flickering light at a moment's notice, providing the perfect space to hunker down with a glass of something special.


Separating the kitchen from the living area, a beautiful, two-toned wooden table is an idyllic spot to enjoy dreamy breakfasts overlooking the cliffs, while a coffee machine promises your favourite morning blend. The kitchen is crafted with stunning natural wood, creating a relaxed environment for creating culinary delights. Indeed, whipping up a romantic meal for two is deliciously easy in this chic kitchen. Clearing away is a breeze too with the dishwasher that sits neatly out of sight. You'll also find a Smart TV and Marshall speaker, offering the perfect accompaniments for moments of escape and relaxation.


When sleep beckons, there's nowhere dreamier to rest your head than the invitingly dulcet bedroom. Sink into the king-sized bed, which is adorned with gloriously plump pillows, and savour a comforting cup of tea as you recount the day. This gorgeous space continues the natural theme of Nori, with a driftwood mirror and wicker side table adding stylish soft touches, while the built-in wardrobe and side tables allow you to make yourself utterly at home.


With wood-effect tiling, fluffy towels, and a beautiful feature mirror, it's easy to create your own slice of paradise in the stylish bathroom, which boasts an indulgent shower alongside the heavenly scents of Noble and Isle toiletries. You'll even find a striking wooden bowl filled with Cornish pebbles and stones, a perfect pairing of spa decadence and the rugged beauty of Cornwall.

Outdoor space

Making full use of the sweeping views across Trevaunance Cove, the rooftop terrace is an idyllic spot to stargaze with the gentle melody of the ocean for company. Sip cocktails on the two-person garden sofa or sit and watch the world go by from the two wicker chairs, it's the perfect place for an al fresco breakfast or evening tipple with your treasured loved one. Uncover a sumptuous mix of blankets and cushions in the garden storage box, so even in the cooler months you can enjoy this rooftop haven.


Whilst private parking is not available at Nori, parking can be found in the beachside car park or in the Reppers Coombe car park, which is located a little further up the road. An electric charging point can be found at the Driftwood Spa Hotel, which is available to those who dine in the restaurant.

In the Area

With the North coast of Cornwall right on your doorstep, Nori is ideally positioned for some wistful coastal adventures. Head out onto the South West Coast Path for some incredible walks with oodles of arresting views, including the iconic Wheal Coates engine house, which lies amidst a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You have the allure of Trevaunance Cove a mere stone's throw from the cottage, and there are many other winsome beaches to discover in the vicinity. Chapel Porth is a true hidden gem and boasts a mesmerising expanse of sand at low tide when you can even stroll along the beach to neighbouring Porthtowan. Chapel Porth is owned by the National Trust, so it's impeccably kept and offers beachgoers a charming beachside café for some post-surf reverie.

Closer to home, you'll find a fabulous assortment of eateries in the village ready to ply you with fresh seafood and local fare. For a delicious breakfast, head to The Sorting Office for buttery pastries and bagels, or seasonal Genki for a simply stunning smoothie bowl in their hillside garden. Lunchtime and evening diners will love sitting down to a meal at Shellfish Beach, which specialises in sublime seafood, or Schooners, where sea views, sourdough pizza, and cocktails await. Of course, you can't visit Cornwall without having a traditional Cornish pasty. Luckily St Agnes Bakery makes some of the best pasties in the county, alongside other morish treats and divine fresh bread. Make the most of your Cornish retreat and fill the cupboards up with local goodies, whether it's locally sourced meat from the village butchers, fresh veg from the greengrocers, or artisan cheeses and charcuterie from Trunk Deli.

When it comes to activities, St Agnes delivers throughout the year. In the winter months, the coastal paths provide spellbinding views and grand walks in whichever direction you head. Or, if your interests lie in the water, Trevaunance Cove offers superb surf, swimming, and kayaking opportunities, especially in the balmy summer months when you might be joined by a curious seal or dolphin.

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

Beautiful interiors and in a wonderful location. Loved the wood burner, and additional extras to include the freshly baked scones, Cornish cider and picnic basket. Really lovely stay.

Idyllic little retreat in the most incredible location.

Lovely cosy stay at Nori in a stunning location overlooking the sea.

We loved the little extras on arrival, the available yoga mats, the available local map for hiking, the cooking books... Everything was meant for us to make the best of our stay at Nori. We had decided to come back even before leaving !

Jane is an amazing host who was very helpful and caring. She saved our first evening dinner (late arrival!) with a lovely welcome basket full of delicious Cornish goods!

Lovely little cottage with everything you need and a luxury feel. Tucked away from view but with very easy access to everything St Agnes has to offer. I was there in perfect weather but it would be equally pleasant as a storm hideaway. Will be back!
