Baragwainaith | Sleeps 5 + 1  A beautifully restored artisans cottage with stunning sea views, this magnificent home is our very finest retreat.

Hidden away in meadowland at the end of a Cornish lane and looking out to sea this is a truly unique and peaceful property. Character, charm and quality abound, exposed granite, wooden floors, vaulted skylight ceilings and even an authentic smugglers tunnel under a glass panel in the floor. Triple aspect windows and doors, with glorious panoramic views to the ocean and a different view of the sea from every room.

Enter by a stable door into the fabulously well equipped kitchen: handcrafted units with granite tops, butler sink, dishwasher, washer dryer, fridge, freezer, microwave and coffee machine. At the far end, beyond the dining table, in the middle of the slate floor is a viewing panel for the smugglers hide.

The open plan lounge is an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary style with an emphasis on making your stay as comfortable as possible. French doors lead to the sunny and secure garden with a play frame and patio with dining table and chairs. A wood burning stove, lcd tv/dvd, freeview, wi fi, Ipod dock and sea views to three sides. Slate flooring, cast iron radiators and furnishings in muted seaside tones create a lovely relaxing feel.

Upstairs the en suite master bedroom is simply delightful and exudes romance, a king size bed, designer fabrics and three separate sets of French doors, one leading on to a granite deck area with seating and the others to Romeo and Juliet balconies, each with an individual sea view. Awaken to sweeping views across St Ives bay and the Godrevy lighthouse.

A second bedroom with two single beds and a third pull out truckle is just as impressive, wooden shutters, vaulted skylights and sumptuous soft furnishings. A desk, blackout blinds and plenty of storage ensure that this room is both gorgeous and practical.

The family bathroom has a bath with shower over, natural stone tiles and flooring.

Surrounded by acres of meadowland with the ocean as a backdrop and sea views from every window this rural haven is ideal for every season. A west facing patio area with sunset views, perfect for al fresco dining, a barbecue or enjoying a glass of something chilled, a wood burner for winter evenings by the fire. If you can tear yourself away, St Ives and its plentiful beaches, galleries, restaurants and bars is just a minutes away, either on foot across the open fields or by car.

Property Location


Hidden away in picturesque Cornish countryside on a cliff top over looking the sea the historic hamlet of Trowan is a unique rural retreat. The private gated community of a dozen cottages lies in seclusion at the end of a meandering lane just a mile to the west of St Ives, a select four of the properties have been individually chosen by Only. (the majority of the cottages are second family homes occupied for just a few weeks a year) Surrounded by acres of meadowland with the sea to three sides you may want to do nothing more than simply soak up the view, take the footpath from your door and a twenty minute coastal walk will take you to the beaches, restaurants and bars.
Steeped in history, this very special place has seen a lot of life, home to the mining community followed by dairy farmers and most recently left derelict in disrepair, now fastidiously renovated and restored to its former glory our retreats don't come any more authentic than this. With a character and charm that changes through the seasons, lush green fields in summer, where children can safely play, bracing headland walks as the evenings start to draw in, breathtaking displays of shooting stars high above in the winter sky, Trowan is an Only of which we are immensely proud.
