With a panoramic seascape including St Michael's Mount and the Lizard, Thurso Cottage is a traditional fisherman's cottage paces from the ocean.
Set over three floors, this retreat is fabulous for family, friends and couples. In a terrace of traditional granite cottages, it offers well presented refurbished accommodation with an interior fusing style, homely comforts and personality. The little rear courtyard is a haven for al fresco dining. The open plan living room centres around the open fireplace, so kick back and cosy up in the cooler months. With two of the three comfy bedrooms promising big sea vistas over the harbour and around the bay, waking almost ocean-side is a given. The lively seafaring town of Newlyn, with harbour and one of the UK's largest fishing fleets, is a popular spot with museum and a myriad of craft shops and galleries showcasing local and international artists work. Enjoy a tasty 'catch of the day' supper from the fresh fish market, or dine out at one of the many restaurants and inns. Penzance is less than two miles away with promenade and open air Jubilee Swimming Pool, plus mainline train station if you wish to leave the car at home! Mounts Bay plays host to the most fantastic rambling and cliff top walks! Head eastwards past Penzance to Marazion with big beach and landmark attraction St Michaels Mount, just five miles away. The waters here are popular for boating and sailing, with beach for games and picnics. Westbound, the charismatic coastal village of Mousehole is very quaint with sheltered beach, inns and eateries, plus the stunning Christmas Light festival! Pedn Vounder Beach and Porthcurno rank among Cornwall's best for golden sand and beautiful blue seas. Postcard perfect St Ives is a must visit resort, reached within a 30 minute drive. Thurso Cottage makes a superb base any time of the year!
