Crofters Cottage With Stunning Sea Views
Crofters Cottage is a very special little cottage in the most beautiful spot with no neighbours and lovely views out to sea. It is rustic and fairly basic but if you are looking for peace, tranquillity and a chance to escape from everyday life, then this is the cottage for you!
Crofters Cottage is a lovely old stone cottage with stunning views out to sea, recently used for shooting lunches and as a ‘overflow’ for family to stay in when the farmhouse was full. We have recently completed some basic renovation work (including a lovely spiral staircase, a woodburner and a woodfired hot tub), whilst still keeping the rustic charm and simplicity of the cottage.
There is no central heating but there is a woodburner downstairs and there are a couple of portable electric radiators. Downstairs is an open plan living and kitchen area, with a huge oak table separating the two areas and a lovely old slate floor. The kitchen area has all that you need for a comfortable stay, including a dishwasher, and there are chairs and a settee in the living area. Big double doors open up onto a terrace area where you can enjoy stunning views out to sea.
Due to the remote location, there is no television or mobile phone signal – but we think this makes it perfect for a really relaxing break! (There is free WiFi though, so you can still stay in touch with the outside world.) There is a great stereo system and you can also play your music direct from your iPod or smartphone via a bluetooth speaker. For those of you with a more retro look on life, there is a also a record player and a selection of LPs to choose from!
A spiral staircase winds up to the first floor, also open plan, which has a superking size bed, two single beds and an antique roll top bath! At one end of the room there are big double doors that open out allowing the sunshine to pour in and giving access to the garden area. There is a very small private closet in the corner of the room with a toilet and basin.
Outside is a private garden and patio, which enjoys stunning views out to sea, as well as a fantastic woodfired hot tub for you to relax in at the end of a hard day’s walking. Just fill it up, light up the woodburner attached and keep it fed for a few hours and the hot tub will be ready to relax in – just perfect! And, with no light pollution in the sky, you will be able to star gaze the night away…
You are welcome to walk through our fields to get to the coast path and from there to access our private cove (we call it the Blue Lagoon) – about a 10 minute walk. Or walk the couple of miles to Mothecombe Beach and enjoy the stunning beaches and estuary of the River Erme.
Children and dogs are very welcome, but please be aware that there is a spiral staircase with no stairgates and the cottage is totally open plan – so no doors to shut out any noise! We therefore don’t recommend the cottage for toddlers.
Superior 100% cotton white bed linen and big fluffy towels are all provided, as well as tea-towels, bath mats and environmentally friendly cleaning materials. We put delicious local organic milk in the fridge for your arrival, with our compliments, along with enough recycled paper toilet rolls, Fair Trade tea, coffee & sugar to get you started!
