Take the deeply wooded lane down towards Lamorna cove past its pub and 200 yards from the cove, tucked nestling along the banks of the valley stream, is a little detached cottage built from Lamorna's fine granite. This idyll was once the studio of 'Lamorna' Birch, from where he drew his inspiration. From the privately owned lane, a sloping path leads down through a natural garden (terrace, table/chairs) on various levels beside the valley stream (unfenced), surrounded by mature woodland; it's worth just sitting and enjoying the timelessness and calm of the place. From the garden, step up into open-plan living/dining/kitchen (microwave, fridge-freezer) with lovely, high beamed ceiling and big skylight letting in lots of natural light, terracotta tiled floor (carpet), woodburner, sofa and day bed (no TV). From living room, 3 steps up to curtained-off double bedroom (access to one side of bed only) with hooks for clothes-hanging and en suite shower-room (suite). No children under 10. Best for maximum of 2 adults, 1 child. Loading/unloading outside only; parking, 100 yards. Pub and hotel, 350 yards; beach and coastal footpath, 200 yards. A balm-to-the-soul place.

The West Country region

The End of England - the Penwith peninsula: a wild land, but much inhabited since long, long ago; and very beautiful in its wildness. The equal-top coastal drive in the West Country is along its north coast from Pendeen to Zennor to St Ives (Exmoor's sea-view road is its rival): gorse and bracken hills, granite-topped and bouldered, above you; below, small drystone-walled fields sprinkled with sheep, granite farmhouses and barns, spectacularly rocky headlands (to walk), and - if you're lucky and it's evening - a deep, deep blue sea beyond. There are Stone Age burial quoits, Bronze Age hut circles, two remarkably preserved Iron Age villages.

On the softer southern coast, Mousehole is Cornwall's prettiest fishing village, Newlyn the West Country's busiest; built into the cliffs above Porthcurno's sandy cove is the Minack Theatre - a 'must go', but wrap up warm. Sennen Cove's huge sandy beach is wonderful for children and sunsets, as well as surfing. The tall chimneys of extinct tin-mining stand strangely romantically above the sea at Botallack. All this and the light bring painters, especially to St Ives. Penzance is a good, sensible town and base with fine prom for strolling. Helicopters or a ship will take you to the Scilly Isles; the mainline railway to and from the world you left behind. Your first glimpse of St Michael's Mount is one of travelling's thrills. Go to Land's End if you must (only). All round the peninsula goes the coast path, of course - one of the very best stretches of it.

Penzance

Lamorna: captivating cove and former fishing village (hotel, pub, seasonal café/ boat rentals), made famous by film-makers, authors, such as Derek Tangye, and artists, including S.J. 'Lamorna' Birch and other Newlyn School of Art founders. Stunning 2 mile coastal walk to Mousehole. Penzance and Porthcurno's Minack Theatre, 5 miles. St Ives, 15 miles.
