The Cabin is largely open plan with floor to ceiling glass fronted windows and a wraparound decked area, the outside meets the interior whatever the weather. Don't for a moment worry that this hideaway will be exposed to the elements, its timber construction, electric panel heating and double glazed glass (plus huge lined linen curtains should you chose to pull them) will keep this little getaway spot as snug as you'd could want it to be. A large living area with big sofa and chilled collection of retro furniture and rugs, books, board games and of course the TV, DVD player, IPod doc, and a collection of films means you can just hang out together.
Next to the main living area is The Boot Room - ship shape storage from hanging cupboards to the washing machine and fridge freezer. Slate topped work surfaces and white cupboards to make sure all your kit is tucked away and out of sight.
A very simple, ship-shape galley kitchen area under the mezzanine level is equipped with the basics you will need, including a dishwasher. The fridge and freezer are tucked away in the Boot Room. Please note that whilst the kitchen is equipped with crockery and utensils, because of the timber construction of The Cabin the oven is convection only with a separate electric hob. Please be extremely careful if you choose to BBQ on the outside decking area, there is a chiminea which you are welcome to cook on (we recommend starting you jacket potatoes in the microwave first).Sleeping
Part of the charm of The Cabin is in the mezzanine sleeping area. Tucked into the A-frame of the foor is a king-sized double bed next to a snug area with rugs and bookshelves but please be aware the mezzanine is for sleeping in and there is restricted head height. The sleeping area is accessible by open slatted wooden steps which although securely fixed are steep.Bathing
There is a small shower room tucked under the mezzanine level which has a loo and sink. There is also an outside shower (with hot water) prefect for après surf!Parking
Parking is allocated at the top of the hill but as The Cabin is accessible only by foot please bear this in mind when packing! There is a bag drop off spot a bit closer to the retreat. The parking space is a two minute walk up hill from The Cabin.Outside Space
The wrap around decking area is all yours, but follow the footpath and you hit the beach! Porthkidney is St Ives best kept secret, a totally unspoilt stretch that never gets busy - used only by those in the know, surfers, horse riders, dog walkers, anglers and bird watchers. To get to the beach at LOW TIDE turn right outside the gate and continue to the steps on the right. These lead down to an old gun emplacement (great for angling for sea bass and mullet) and the rocks. You can only get down to the beach this way when the tide is far enough out. At HIGH TIDE turn left outside the gate, walk past the railway crossing along the coast path to the sand dunes, this takes about 15 minutes.Back to cottage list Availability
