Escape to Libertine; a luxury self-catering cottage close to Perranporth beach and Goonhavern on the north Cornwall coast. A wonderfully secluded and stylish retreat for the city surfer, this fashionista’s cottage is sublimely positioned amidst a peaceful milieu of pretty woodland and is within easy reach of Cornwall's finest surf breaks.
Once home to three little pigs, this 1860's Cornish piggery has been transformed into a luxury self-catering cottage with ultra stylish interiors. The traditional stone and cedar-clad exteriors conceal the infusion of modern features and fluorescent flourishes inside. From the industrial-inspired zinc kitchen with metro tile splashback, to the flashes of neon and royal blue velvet in the living area, each room has been given an injection of electric romance.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
In the double bedroom crisp linens, white stone walls and exposed pendant bulbs invite you inside to lose yourself in the luxury of this lavish and luminous space. The bronze Victorian bed boasts hand-printed Egyptian cotton sheets, with pops of pink and playful pastel accessories making early nights and lazy lie-ins all the more tempting. Opposite is a stylish bathroom complete with WC, bathtub and powerful solar-heated shower to exhilarate weary bodies after long country ramblings.
Libertine's private surroundings are ideal for unwinding and al fresco dining. This south-facing hideaway hunkers down below acres of woodland, and the close proximity to the coast makes the cottage perfectly positioned for saltwater adventures. Discover your own private wilderness behind the cottage by following steps to the secret garden and enchanted wood of bluebells and wild garlic beyond. Wind down the path to the hammock where you can truly immerse yourself in the countryside; sway in the breeze and let the soft moos of the distant cows lull you into an afternoon siesta.
Unravel the beauty hidden in all the nooks and crannies of Libertine’s Beatrix Potter-like location starting straight from the front door. With an abundance of footpaths, bridleways and green lanes to choose from, the opportunities for exploration are endless. Muddle together fresh mint and lemons and make ice cold mojitos to savour in the courtyard on a starlit night, before surrendering to the gorgeously plump cushions in the living room. Challenge your partner to a board game or simply kick back by the glowing log burner.
There is parking for two cars directly outside Libertine. Heating is solar-powered, and there is a wood burner to keep guests cosy in winter months. The kitchen features a washing machine, fridge freezer, microwave, electric oven and gas hob. The owners live nearby.

AROUND THE PROPERTY
Style: This urban cottage juxtaposes its whimsical woodland setting in the most perfect way. Exposed bulbs and fluorescent flashes add an underground vibe, softened by shabby sheepskins and leopard prints.
Property Owner Caroline says
We found this spot whilst out getting thoroughly lost one day and we both immediately fell in love with it. Being an ex-fashion buyer, renovating the piggery gave me a chance to indulge in my love of fabric, print and colour. We hope each guest enjoys their stay as much as we love living here.

FOOD AND DRINK
The light-filled urban-style kitchen has all the necessities needed for two. The day boat fisherman in St Agnes sell lobster, crab and line caught fish, and Carr Butchers around the corner is a great choice for local meat. With first-class bakers and greengrocers adding to the list of local food suppliers, it’s not hard to find fresh farm produce nearby.
If you'd rather spend your romantic self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your partner (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).
For a cosy country pub which oozes old-world charm, don your walking boots and head through the country lanes to The Bolingey Inn, approximately half an hour's walk away from the cottage. For a more refined menu, choose No 4 in St Agnes, but be sure to book ahead. Those lucky enough to stay during one of Nancarrow Farm's monthly feast nights are in for a real treat - these are not to be missed!
