We’ve designed New Forge Cottage to give you the best possible base for your holiday in West Cornwall. Just a short walk from the magical surf destination of Gwenver Beach, and right on the rugged North Cornish Cliffs, it’s close to the action, yet truly away from it all.
New Forge is an inspiring and generous space that has room for the whole family to be together, or there’s plenty of room to escape for some quiet time.
Accommodation: We’ve recently completed the cottage to a high standard offering a fantastic living / dining space and two spacious bedrooms.
The living space has two big comfortable sofas, a woodburner that heats the place in no time on a chilly evening, and a huge dining table for family and friends too.
The modern fitted kitchen includes dishwasher, induction hob, fridge with ice box, and combination oven.
Upstairs there’s a wonderful large double bedroom with views over Bartinney Beacon
and Chapel Carn Brea, there’s good storage and an en-
Then downstairs there’s a generous, light filled twin bedroom with TV and DVD and wardrobe.
The bathroom is simple, and gorgeous. There’s a lovely double ended bath, and separate shower.
The cottage has lovely underfloor heating giving a comfortable ambient heat, or you can boost it in no time by lighting the woodburner.
The gardens are private and offer many options to sit out and see how close Horace the pheasant will come if tempted with seed. There’s also a garden office space.
If someone needs to work or study there’s broadband and a comfortable garden office space, or, by prior arrangement I can make my own office available too.
There’s plenty of parking.
Around and about: It’s a little over ten minutes walk to the lovely Gwenver Beach, then you can carry on to Sennen in one direction or Cape Cornwall in the other. After Sennen are the rugged cliffs of Lands End, then a few more miles takes you to the stunning beach at Porthcurno, over looked by the Minack open air theatre.
The mining heritage of Cornwall is on our doorstep, with the famous Crown Mines of Bottallack, and the last working tin mine of Geevor just a couple of miles past St Just.
There’s both a surf school and surf hire in Sennen.
The two pubs of Sennen are each about 35 minutes walk, or a couple of minutes in the car. Sennen also offers the renowned Beach Restaurant, Breaker’s Café and Fish and Chips.
In nearby St Just there’s a good range of shops, excellent butchers, pubs and two little café restaurants. And before you get there you pass Lands End Airfield from where you can take stunning scenic flights, or nip over to the Scilly Isles for the day.
Penzance is 8 miles away, and St Ives is 15 miles, both offer a wide variety of galleries and restaurants.
