About this property

Morvah 0.5 miles. A delightful Grade II listed, semi-detached cottage in the hamlet of Trevowhan, near Morvah, nine miles from St Ives. Superbly located for touring, this characterful property is perfect for a family or group of friends in need of a break away in one of the most dramatic and picturesque areas of Cornwall. As you drive towards this special property along one of the UK’s most scenic roads, you can feel the stresses and pressures of modern life fall away as you drink in the breathtaking views of the rugged Atlantic coast and the beautiful west Cornwall moors. Upon arrival at Trevowhan House, it is immediately apparent that the unique character of the surrounding area is reflected throughout this special property. As soon as you walk into the hallway, complete with an old slate floor, the cottage’s welcoming atmosphere greets you and it is easy to feel right at home. This warming sense of wellbeing keeps on growing as you discover not one, but two sitting rooms, one of which includes a dining area, both of which are completed by woodburning stoves, ideal for relaxing in front of during the chillier months. Last, but most certainly not least on the ground floor is the well-equipped kitchen, excellently furnished in a contemporary style, complete with a splendid range oven, ideal for the family chef to appreciate. Head upstairs and you'll find two tastefully furnished bedrooms with double beds (mattress size 135 x 190cm) and a bunk room, all with tranquil coastal views and a stylish family bathroom. Outside, you can make the most of the sunshine at any time of the day as there’s an enclosed lawned garden to the front and a lovely courtyard to the rear, both of which are equally perfect for sipping a morning cup of coffee or enjoying a glass of something cool with loved ones after a day exploring the Cornish coast. Once tempted away from this charming property, excellent walks can be enjoyed right from your doorstep; within a couple of minutes you will find yourself on the coastal path and a most enjoyable stroll to the local beach is a must. Alternatively, jump in the car for a short drive to Sennen Cove, with a wonderful sandy beach and perfect conditions for surfing, or if you don’t fancy driving, why not take the open top bus which stops close to the house and visit the unmissable seaside town of St Ives? A wonderful cottage in a stunning location, Trevowhan House can be enjoyed all year round by family and friends alike.

Nearby is Penzance, one of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas, with lots of sandy beaches, rocky coves and winding village streets.

    Everything was ready, clean and comfortable to welcome us, and Tamsin and Matt, as always, go above and beyond to help- but during your stay, they are unobtrusive but quickly available! There are few houses we love as much as Trevowhan House- ask yourself why we return year after year. Another memorable holiday for us and the dog!

  • Adrian

    Great kitchen and plenty of space especially for a family. Sea views from bedroom and kitchen windows. Nor far from Botallack where Poldark was filmed, Land's End and St.ives all within easy reach. Definitely worth staying here.

  • Rachael
