Living in No 5

Look out towards the Lizard under towering eaves. Relax with a book in the afternoon sun or dine alfresco on the pretty terrace. Put your feet up by the log burner and tuck into locally sourced treats. Make yourself at home in a cosy Cornish cottage decked out in luxurious contemporary comfort.

No.5 is laid out so you can be sociable or enjoy some time out in peace. Squirrel away in the upstairs ‘summer sit’ where a squishy L-shaped sofa begs you to lounge around with a glossy magazine or simply gaze out to sea. Conjure up a feast in a swanky kitchen equipped with ultra-modern appliances, adjust the lighting to suit your mood and snuggle up by the fire in the ground floor ‘winter sit’.

Neutral décor reflects the seascapes on the doorstep, whilst thoughtful details such as driftwood shelves, sanded roof beams and exposed granite slabs show off the traditional character of this 2oo year-old cottage. Modern facilities are subtly incorporated so as not to detract from the uncluttered ambience and sea views, leaving eclectic pieces of painted French furniture, tea chests and local artwork to take centre stage.
