There is a bench outside the kitchen which catches the morning sun, so it's ideal for morning coffee, and although you can't see the sea from the first floor roof terrace, you can hear it! The little Mediterranean-style terrace has a pair of armchairs and coffee table, plus a palm tree in a pot!

The West Country / Cornwall region
The toe of England, Penwith abounds in fabulous beaches and cliff scenery. The historic heritage includes the greatest density of prehistoric sites in Britain, plus World Heritage mining complexes. The waters of the clean clear Atlantic are warmed by the Gulf Stream and attract surfers and wind surfers all year round. The Coast Path is picked up just beside the cottage, as is the historic Coffin Trail, rated Best Seaside Walk in Britain by the Sunday Times. The air is as clean as it gets! Not forgetting the artists' studios, including the Barbara Hepworth Museum and the Leach Pottery, both within walking distance. And the world-famous Tate Gallery, which has regularly changing exhibitions featuring local artists including Patrick Heron and Ben Nicholson. It also has a superb roof top restaurant/cafe with outstanding views over Porthmeor Beach.
The St Ives / Downalong area
Historic St Ives has grown from a busy fishing village to a famous art destination with an all year round tourist provision. The sunsets from west facing Porthmeor are an attraction in themselves, and Shell Cottage is close enough to bring your barbecue down to the sands while you wait for the sun to set.

We had a lovely long weekend at this warm, cosy cottage. It is very well equipped, even with beach equipment. We had a wonderful welcome with flowers and cake. The beds are fantastically comfy. The location is ideal, close to all harbour and shops but very quiet. Wifi was a bonus too! Thanks for a great break!
