Fall in love with this utterly gorgeous bolthole for two – a Grade II listed studio barn in the village of St Levan just outside of Porthcurno. Beautifully restored and converted, Rest House forms an idyllic retreat in one of Cornwall’s most beautiful coastal locations and is perfect for couples seeking time away for relaxation, peace and quiet.

Small yet flawlessly proportioned, the property has everything you’ll need to feel completely comfortable during your stay. What makes Rest House really unique however is the quality of the building’s restoration, its tastefully styled interior, and the sense of space created outside by the walled courtyard garden where you’ll be able to eat or drink alfresco in the sunshine.

When the weather’s wet you can curl up with a good book on the sofa or cosy up next to the wood-burner which even has a small oven on top for you to warm fresh locally made pasties for lunch. The clean and contemporary bathroom with a its large walk-in shower is great for de-sanding in after the beach and if you feel like rustling up your own holiday fare the amply equipped bijou kitchen has all you’ll need for it. An inviting double bed completes the space and with its deep mattress and crisp bedding, you’ll be tempted to enjoy numerous long morning lie-ins before setting off to explore the nearby coast paths, beaches and historic sites of the area.

And speaking of beaches, a handful of Cornwall’s best lie on the doorstep. Famed for their white sands, beautiful boulder formations and water of a staggering shade of turquoise, Porthcurno and Pedn Vounder are an absolute must-visit, as is the lesser known but beautifully unspoilt beach of Nanjizal which can be found less than 1.5 miles from the barn. Close by too is the iconic Minack Theatre which perches on a cliff above the sea, and here you’ll be able to take in an open-air production, music concert or festival, depending on the theatre’s programming.
