A stylish topsy-turvy luxury self-catering cottage near St. Ives Bay in Cornwall just perfect for couples looking for an idyllic romantic escape; Lofty offers a relaxing luxury cottage break in the peace and tranquility of the verdant West Country away from the hubbub of daily life.

Romantic luxury self-catering cottage St Ives


Lofty is a contemporary loft conversion of an 15th century Grade II-listed granite barn. The two-storey barn combines modern reverse level living whilst preserving the essential charm and character of the original building. An idyllic romantic luxury self-catering cottage close to St. Ives perfect for newlyweds, or just for lovebirds looking for time out from it all immersed in beautiful surroundings. The private courtyard garden is the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine on a warm summer's evening and listen to the bees buzz lazily around the flowers.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

The large ground floor king-size bedroom is bedecked in fine linens and has a TV for enjoying black and white romantic movies in bed, whilst the doors opening to the private sunny garden welcome the outside in. The charming en suite bathroom has a bath tub with shower over, fluffy towels and luxury toiletries making it the perfect place for indulging in some relaxation and blissful pampering.


The sunny private courtyard garden offers the perfect spot for some al fresco dining or simply a morning coffee with the papers. Situated in an idyllic rural hamlet just four miles from North and South Cornish coasts; close to St Ives Bay, Praa Sands and Hayle. The main farmhouse itself has two acres of lush green gardens which you are welcome to explore. The owner's friendly cats and dogs and hens, ducks and geese may occasionally venture into the garden - but they are very friendly!

For Relaxation

The open plan first floor was designed for flexible living. Stretch out on the sofas or curl up by the stove when the weather is inclement and enjoy a glass of hearty red with your nose in a good book. The sweet dining table in the sitting room is perfect for a romantic supper by candlelight...


Lofty is set within a courtyard close to a few other farm buildings. There is a washer/dryer, dishwasher and microwave at the cottage. There is private parking for one car. Additional logs can be purchased at £6 per basket and delivered on prior request. Please note: the courtyard is not enclosed and dogs must be kept on a lead at all times whilst in the grounds and gardens.



Style: Beautiful roof trusses throughout the open plan first floor offer a real sense of space. Exposed beams sit well beside modern furniture, whilst light pours in from the generous windows of this lofty living space.

I found the private courtyard garden the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine on a warm summer´s evening, or fresh coffee and the papers come morning time. We thoroughly enjoyed the occasional visits from the owner´s friendly menagerie of cats, dogs, hens, geese and chickens!
