Fling open the windows and bring the outside in to your bedroom whilst ensuring that al fresco breakfasts top the agenda during your stay. No doubt there’ll be many an hour spent cloud-watching in the lazy hammock.
The Retreat is squirreled away down winding Cornish lanes yet within a stone's throw of the coastal villages of Tintagel, Boscastle and Crackington Haven. Positioned in the most tranquil of settings in beautiful countryside surroundings, there are distant sea views from the cottage to tempt. The suntrap deck is perfect for al fresco dining surrounded by the fragrance of wild flowers and herbs.
The spacious sitting room at The Retreat is simply stunning and has double doors leading out to the decking area. Combining the cosy with the striking; squishy sofas, soft throws and a roaring logburner set the scene for a winter stay, whilst the double height beams create a fresh, light and inspiring space just perfect for reclining in after a day at the beach during summer months.
There is parking for up to two cars. The heating as well as the underfloor heating is solar-powered, and there is a wood burner plus large supply of logs to keep guests cosy in winter months. There is a washing machine at the cottage, but no internet which allows for a perfectly relaxing 'Retreat' experience!

FOOD AND DRINK
Enjoy stunning countryside views from the well-equipped kitchen/diner, which has all the essentials in place. Throw open the dining room doors to bring the outside in and enjoy a relaxed dining experience. Indulge in the very best of local fodder, from fish landed that morning, to lip-smacking cream teas and the freshest of Cornish seasonal flavours.
If you'd rather spend your break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).
Whether you're looking for a relaxed real Cornish country pub meal or a fine dining experience, there are a whole host of great eateries to tempt on a local level as well as further afield. The Cobweb Freehouse is good for local beer and reasonable 'pub grub'. For more formal dining, try the Riverside restaurant in Boscastle.
