Raftra Cottage is a colourful artist's house, available for a few months of the year. It has a lovely homely feel as it is Claire's home when not rented out! It is an old granite cottage with slate floors downstairs and deep window seats with sea views upstairs. It has an open plan kitchen diner, very well equipped for self-catering & a separate lounge with wood burning stove, comfy sofa and chairs, TV/DVD and WiFi. Upstairs there is a large double bedroom with a super comfy king size bed, and a cosy twin room - both with views across our meadow to the sea - and a family bathroom.
Please note that due to sloping ceilings upstairs we do not have a full height shower; just a shower attachment in the bath.
Outside there's a private, sheltered patio and lawned garden surrounded by hedges There's a fire pit in the garden for barbecuing on, or sitting around while you watch the stars come out!
We provide all bedding and towels, toilet rolls, & basic kitchen necessities like salt & pepper & oil. The Cottage also has loads of games, DVD's and books for rainy days and boules, bat & ball, buckets and spades & windbreak for the beach.
Claire offers on site art classes and can arrange on site massage too.
The property is within 25 minute's walk of 3 gorgeous, unspoilt coves; Nanjizal, Porthgwarra and Porthchapel, and is easily accessible by footpath from the door to the most stunning section of the South West Coastal path. We are also very close to the Minack Theatre, Porthcurno, Sennen Cove and Lands End, and a perfect base for walking, surfing, climbing, bird-watching, exploring ancient sites, sea swimming or simply having a well-earned rest!
We also rent out 3 other properties in the same hamlet as the Cottage: The Barn, The Bolt Hole and the Retreat, and you'll find details of them all on our linked website.
