Higher Trowan Cottage  | Sleeps 4

Comfort and design shine out in this single storey Only, with extensive gardens looking out to sea and five sets of French doors to welcome the outside in. Every element, including the feature woodburner, lovingly chosen. The location is equally as stunning, paces from the coastal path and five minutes drive to the beach.
At one end a softly painted handcrafted kitchen has been thoughtfully equipped: granite surfaces, butler sink, dishwasher, washer/dryer ceramic hob and microwave. Greengate china and Cath Kidston textiles for the farmhouse table and a wicker picnic basket and bottle carrier if you fancy lunch elsewhere.
Luxurious textiles and coastal inspired décor create a relaxing lounge, widescreen tv/dvd, Ipod dock, wi fi access and a selection of books to help you unwind, the peaceful outlook and fresh sea air is sure to help with that.
Space and tranquility in each of the two bedrooms. More quality soft furnishings and pretty finishing touches. The main bedroom is a king and the second a twin both made up with crisp white linen.
A family bathroom with bath and shower over has the same designer touches, a heated towel rail and plenty of towels.
Outside at Higher Trowan you will find a patio with dining table and chairs, the all important bbq and a large raised lawn with views to the sea. A handy outside tap at the entrance is great for sandy little feet or salty wetsuits, good for muddy boots in winter too.

Property Location

Trowan  TR26 3AE

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.
