  • “St Martin's view has the most fabulous location with far reaching sea views and sublime sunsets (which can be particularly enjoyed with a glass of wine sitting on the comfortable terrace).”

    The garden is a small work of art and beautifully kept. The cottage is comfortable and well provided for. It is warm and would be a lovely base in winter as well as other times of year. Fabulous walking from the door. A lovely warm welcome from the owners.

The property

With captivating uninterrupted sea views across beautiful National Trust countryside, St Martin's View is superbly positioned between dramatic Land's End and sublime St Ives.

Sitting in the seaward facing hamlet of Lower Boscaswell, the cottage nestles down a quiet private lane.

Homely and spacious, this single storey property sits in a generous, enclosed garden with sun terrace and gently sloping lawn, leading to the all encompassing landscape dotted with tin and copper mines and azure sea beyond.

From here enjoy the view to St Martins, the third largest Isles of Scilly.

The living room is comfy with squashy leather sofas, exposed stone walls, a wood burner for toasty toes and a dining area complimented by the Juliet balcony and windows framing the garden and seascape vista.

The modern kitchen is bright and well equipped, with oak flooring.

The bedrooms are smart and comfy, the master has an en-suite shower room and the family bathroom is contemporary.

Adjoined to the owners own annex, St Martin's View makes an ideal holiday base for families and couples with pets.

There is a courtyard to the front and an enclosed rear garden, which makes a great play area and is perfect for sitting and enjoying barbecue magic or sun-downer drinks. Stroll the half mile to the North Inn at Pendeen, a traditional family friendly Cornish pub.

Ramblers will love exploring the South West Coast Path, where Portheras Cove can be discovered, hidden and un-spoilt just over one mile distant.

Stunning Sennen Cove, famed for surfing and bird-watching can be reached within a 20 minute drive and the town of St Just with its pretty market square, is eight miles away.

Visit Marazion with its sandy beach and water-sports action overlooked by the majestic St Michael's Mount with castle atop.

The quayside at St Ives is beautiful with beaches, galleries and gift shops galore in this pretty town, with divine waterfront restaurants, eateries and traditional inns offering fresh Cornish fayre.

About the location


St Ives 8 miles. Helicopter to Isles of Scilly - 30 minutes

Penzance hosts Golowan, the Midsummer Carnival, and The Literary Festival. There are also The Exchange, Newlyn and Penlee Art Galleries. One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas is the spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, the coastline hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves as well as winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by a causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as it is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Isles of Scilly as well as being the harbor. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
