The property

A most enchanting cottage in a hidden spot just a mile from Holywell Bay and its dramatic sandy beaches.

Discover this sensitively restored cottage which sits in the grounds of Ellenglaze Manor; once a grand Cornish farming estate near the little village of Cubert.

Within walking distance, the village has its own Post Office and Stores, Fish & Chip shop, Cafe and Restaurant with plenty more available along the beachside at Holywell Bay which also has a great fun park in the summer for the children.

This tranquil little two bedroom cottage will give pleasure to its guests with its fabulous bathroom with free standing bath and large shower cubicle, stone detail in the bedrooms, and the amazing clay oven in open hearth of the living room discovered during renovation!

The garden outside will be enjoyed by all with raised seating area and barbecue.

The kitchen and breakfast room is fully equipped with the added charm of hearts and knick-knacks.

Ideal for families or a romantic break, Humble Cottage has plenty to offer with an attractive double room and twin room and lovely soft furnishings. Enjoy the beautiful protected National Trust cliffs along to towards Kelsey Head and Porth Joke cove.

Guests will love to explore the coast in both directions including Perran Sands to the west as well as discovering the mining history and wildlife of this sometimes overlooked gem on the North Coast.
