Rock, North Cornwall
Looking out over the Camel Estuary towards the fishing port of Padstow, Treverra Cottage sets the bar high. Wood floors and neutral decor create a restful ambience alongside ultra-modern touches like the Sonos music system, gas barbecue and pool house. Sleeping up to eight and set in 14 acres with a private infinity pool, hot tub, vegetable garden and tennis courts, there’s plenty of outdoor recreation on your doorstep before you even get to the beach. If you can tear yourself away from this coastal idyll, Nathan Outlaw and Rick Stein offer award-winning food at their nearby restaurants. Blow the cobwebs away at local National Trust beauty spot Trevose Head, while glorious late Victorian Lanhydrock is 15 miles away. ckrock.com/treverra-cottage
Relaxed luxury is the name of the game at Treverra Cottage, which is kitted out with all the mod cons you could possibly need while keeping the look homely and eminently inviting.
