  • An enchanting country cottage for two set in an idyllic rural location
  • Grade II-listed building with some stunning original features
  • Visit iconic Lands End and the pretty beaches of Sennen Cove and Porthcurno
Property code: IVBAN

Far away from the crowds and off the beaten track, this alluring Grade II listed converted barn is one of two and is the retreat you've been waiting for. Set on an idyllic 37-acre smallholding a quatre-mile down a gravelled lane, experience the peace and quiet of the Cornish countryside; bar the sounds of your neighbours, the goats, ducks and ponies. Dog owners will appreciate the enclosed garden perfect for exercising your four-legged friends; it's also the perfect place to enjoy your complimentary Cornish cream tea when you arrive!

Boasting exposed beams, pretty farmhouse-style doors, and comfy furniture, the interior of this one-level cottage has been designed with its surroundings in mind. The apex ceiling in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner gives a great feeling of space. Kitted out with everything you need to unwind, such as a wood burner, a bathtub for a well-earned soak and an enclosed garden with breathtaking views for al fresco suppers and sundowners.

Stay in Cornwall's ‘wild west', an unspoilt corner of the UK; walk the nearby South West Coast Path and be awestruck by the phenomenal clifftop views. Peppered with pubs, shops and restaurants, Sennen still manages to retain its traditional fishing village ambience, and it's only 4 miles west of Ivy Cottage. Just around the corner from Sennen Cove is Kynance Cove, famous for its azure waters and velvet heathland, a must-visit. For a truly unique experience, book tickets for a show at the Minack Theatre (5 miles), an open-air theatre built into a cliff which promises a show beyond the stage - remember to pack a blanket or cushion!

A lovely cottage perfect for a couple and a dog. The garden is secure and there are fields to walk your dog as well. Great location, only a few minutes drive from the coast at Sennen Cove. The village shop is nearby and well stocked. Very comfortable and hope to return soon.

A lovely little cottage in just the right place in Cornwall. Very well presented and so spacious for a small cottage. The Cream Tea on arrival is just the added bonus to the trip. Ideally placed for Lands End, Minack Theatre, Tate St. Ives, Newlyn Gallery, Leach Pottery and so much more for those who want a cultural and artistic break.

Ivy Cottage was well maintained, cosy and comfortable. Our four legged friend settled in and enjoyed the garden, which was enclosed, but he needed supervision as one side had boulders only, which potentially he could have climbed and got over into the other garden. The location was great and very peaceful.
