The property

'Carn Brea', a single-storey cottage for two people, is located in Illogan, a quaint village in Cornwall's southwestern region.

This studio-style lodging is ideal for a couple's holiday, thanks to its contemporary design.

With an Amazon Echo, Smart TV, and a plush sofa, the living room has everything you need to relax!

Trevarno's organic, locally sourced guest toiletries are available in the contemporary shower room.

Through a set of French doors, the studio opens onto a lovely garden.

From dawn until dusk, the stylish and romantic suntrap is a great place to read and relax after a day of sightseeing, with both eating and seating areas available.

Breakfast can be enjoyed outside, or if it's getting late, why not have a glass of fizz by the water feature with some friends?

Illogan has 'Cousin Jacks', an excellent fish and chip shop, and the Robartes Arms pub, which serves dinner every night, to make your self-catering stay more convenient.

A short drive will take you to two large supermarkets as well as three smaller ones.

East Pool Mine is nearby, and Carn Brea Monument and Castle are great spots for a stroll or a picnic in the afternoon.

The beach, surfing, walking, art, and history are just a few of the things you can do while visiting Illogan.

The Eden Project, Newquay, Falmouth, Porthleven, St. Michael's Mount, Lizard, Land's End, the Minack Theatre, Sculpture Gardens, Heligan, and several National Trust properties are just a short drive away and are recognised as some of Cornwall's best attractions.

Both the north and south coasts, with their famed surf spots and quaint seaside towns like St Ives and Penzance, are only a scenic drive away.

Tate St Ives and Barbara Hepworth's Sculpture Garden are good options for art lovers on their way to St Ives.

For those who prefer to leave their cars at home, there is a bus stop just around the corner.

In addition, the coastal path at Basset's Cove offers breath-taking views of the sea from the cliffs; Tehidy Golf Club is also nearby, so don't forget your clubs when you go!

For a romantic Cornish getaway, choose Carn Brea as your base.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
