Property code: 44395

What could be more romantic than waking up to sea views each morning? This traditional cottage is ideal for couples who are looking to escape their busy lives and spend some quality time together in peaceful surroundings. Complete with a crackling wood burner, the cottage is so cosy you might not want to leave.

Arranged on one level, Newdowns Cottage is decorated in calming tones. Choose from snuggling up in the deep sofas of the lounge with a good film, or sharing a home-cooked meal for two in the sunroom which is flooded with natural light. From here, you are treated to breathtaking views of the garden, across the fields and out over the glistening bay. As the night draws in, the bedroom is a soothing haven to rest your head with crisp sheets and plump pillows.

Newdowns Cottage is situated just under a mile from the picturesque village of St Agnes, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and which is also a World Heritage Site. Encompassing traditional friendly Cornish atmosphere, the village is the perfect place to stop for a pub lunch before heading out on a windswept coastal walk. Take a stroll to Trevaunance Cove with its ruined harbour or pack your bucket and spade and lounge on one of the four beaches. Attractions in the area include the Wheel Coates ruins (1.5 miles), St Agnes Beacon (1 mile), Eden Project (31 miles), Newquay Zoo (12.5 miles) and St Michael's Mount (24 miles).

The cottage was in a quiet secluded spot ideal for exploring the SW Coastal walk, Cornish villages and great gardens including the Lost Garden of Heligan. It was spacious and clean. As the information on the property stated the access is down a narrow lane not suitable for small cars.

Cottage was lovely, clean, spacious and in a superb location, just what we wanted. Drive to it was narrow with deep puddles in places so we were cautious and took great care driving down narrow track. Loved seeing wildlife foxes, rabbits, birds and seals. A favorite part of Cornwall with advantage of staying so close to the sea.

What a fantastic break and opportunity to recharge our batteries. My wife and I arrived and were overwhelmed with the cottages location, it was perfect for all our needs. A very comfortable and well presented cottage, we couldn't have asked for anything better. A must visit if you just need to get away and spend some quality time together.

A beautiful getaway cottage which has obviously been well cared for. It has all the equipment you could need and is set in a gorgeous location not far from St Agnes Head and village.

Really nice accommodation - peaceful with direct access to the coast path. Everything we needed was there - once we found the wi-fi details. Beware the access track though!
