Chy Barnett, Nr St Ives
Standing alone in complete seclusion on the Lands End peninsula's wild coastline, and just seven miles from St Ives, Chy Barnett boasts uninterrupted panoramic views over Gurnard's Head, a spectacular rugged headland ringed with white sand coves and pounding Atlantic surf. National Trust owned, this is an atmospheric landscape, sculpted by weathered granite cliffs and beautiful moorland hills crowned with the exquisite hues of heatherland and wild flowers in spring and summer. The surrounding hills conceal fascinating ancient sites, including the Iron Age cliff castles and settlements, and redundant engine houses and shafts, that are visible reminders of Cornwall's tin and copper mining industry. The peninsula offers excellent conditions for surfing, rock climbing, cycling, swimming and more genteel pursuits such as walking, angling, painting, photography and writing. Beach addicts will also be lured by the worldclass beaches at Sennen and Porthcurno, a short distance to the west. Within a short drive are the ancient market town of Penzance, the charming fishing village of Mousehole and the windswept town of St Just. Chy Barnett is a true hideaway, set within an ancient landscape, with vast views of the sea and sky from nearly every room. It is a captivating and distinctive residence, radiating homely comfort and a romantic old world charm with vintage cottage fabrics, original oak flooring and wood panelling, a wood burning stove, a Lacanche range cooker and artwork depicting coastal themes. The large garden fringed with wild flowers offers ample space for children to play while adults set out the garden chairs and soak up the vista. There is parking for three cars.
