Holiday Home Sweet Home
You can't miss the house, walk up the lane to the little terrace and spot the stained glass window sporting a Kittiwake (seagull) hence the name. Through the front door and into a snug sitting room with a huge open inglenook granite fireplace and a log burning stove. The ceilings, whilst sporting the original beams, are a good two feet higher than other properties in the village. Together with the town house sized sash windows it's the height in the rooms which really gives Kittiwake 'house' stature. A fresh and airy mix of old and new ensures Kittiwake hasn't lost any of its cosy appeal. A dark honey coloured leather sofa and its counterpart oversized linen armchair are perfect to curl up on. Whether you light the log burner or not, the under floor heating will make sure your toes never get chilly.Eating
Don't panic! The restored original Cornish range is for admiring only (and for housing the wine rack). The kitchen itself is bespoke and brand new with granite surfaces. Compact but ship-shape and designed by someone who loves cooking so everything is in the right place! The small table sits in the kitchen and is extendable if you want a bigger dining space. Just outside the kitchen you will find a small utility area which houses the washing machine and other housekeeping things.Sleeping
Where else would you find a mix of criss-cross open beams, a fabulous view out over the harbour, a button-back linen headboard, an original fireplace and a turquoise French six-drawer chest? A very gentle ambience with splashes of brilliant colour gives this room a hint of spice - perhaps this has something do to with the Christine Keeler chair.Bathing
Distinctly Victorian in style, this bathroom has something really special about it. The long windows and the original folder wooden shutters, the slipper bath and the separate power shower with oversized head. There is also ample storage in the bathroom for holiday unpacking. The loo is in a separate room adjacent to the bathroom on the same floor as the bedroom.Garden
Kittiwake has a back garden with breathtaking views, climb some steps and you will find your own summer house and terrace for an evening BBQ, a spot of lunch or just chilling with a coffee and the Sunday papers. Views really are spectacular from your own private vantage point. Please note that the steps in the garden are steep and may not be suitable for anyone with impaired mobility.Parking
Please be aware that parking is not available at Kittiwake. Traffic permitting it is usually possible to do a 'bag drop' at the bottom of Mount Pleasant terrace and carry your bags up to the cottage. You can park the car in either of the quayside car parks which are a few minutes' walk away. Please note the path that leads up to Kittiwake is steep (although short approx. 20yrds) and this may not be suitable for guests with limited mobility.
Please do budget in the car park which is £2-£3 per day in peak season (weekly passes are also available). The quayside car parks are a moments' walk away and there is a larger car park at the entrance to the village as well.
