Step through the gate at Sea Thatch and you'd be forgiven for thinking you've been transported back hundreds of years. This divine luxury cottage in Cornwall, with bags of traditional features, dates back to the 16th Century and is nestled moments from the surf in St Agnes. With hidden coves, engine houses and lovely coastal walks literally on your doorstep, it's no wonder this was a place that inspired Poldark creator Winston Graham. We can just imagine Ross galloping on the cliff tops!

The front door opens immediately into the living area where you'll find a cosy space with a traditional wood burning stove, flagged floors and comfy chairs including a lovely leather sofa and a cute window seat. A stunning French oak dining table and chairs lies near enough to enjoy the warmth of the fire whilst the original fireplace at the other end of the room has been transformed in to a little snug, perfect for curling up after a surf or a day on the beach, reading a magazine or two and sipping on something delicious. With full Wi-Fi and with high-speed internet throughout the property, a large TV (with Apple TV option), Blu Ray player and a selection of films, there's plenty of modern entertainment in this luxury cottage.


The kitchen, separate from the living area, is everything you'd expect a traditional cottage kitchen to be but with some fantastic quirky features such as the fab Everhot oven, which can only be described as a bit like an Aga in that it stays on all the time (and looks a bit like one too) but is electric and easy to use. Alongside other top-notch appliances such as a royal blue Smeg fridge and a Nespresso coffee machine, there are lovely marble tops, handcrafted kitchen cabinets to fit the asymmetrical kitchen and a lovely wooden breakfast table to sit four. If cooking's not your thing, and you fancy an extra special treat, why not think about booking Benedict Quinn, our private chef who can rustle you up a fantastic meal in advance, cater for a larger dinner party or even taking you on a foraging foray ending with a beach BBQ. Contact us for more details.


There are two cracking bedrooms in Sea Thatch - a lovely master bedroom with a king sized French style bed and an additional twin bedroom with wrought-iron beds and lovely beamed ceiling. There's a great dressing room too which is also perfect for a small child or a baby with a travel cot.


The cottage may be 16th Century but the bathroom most definitely isn't! With heated stone flooring and two sets of warm towel railings, a full sized bath and a power shower, this is a luxuriously modern bathroom.


Sea Thatch is a unique cottage wrapped in glorious gardens - with hidden spaces and secret walls, walking around this property transports you to another time and place. With the garden taken care of weekly it's beautifully maintained and there are a large set of table and chairs, perfect for some al fresco dining.


There is private parking at Sea Thatch which is suitable for one large car.


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


Two dogs are very welcome. We charge £35 per dog per week or short break.
