NEW FOR  2024. With sea views from almost every window this cosy, stylish cottage is the ideal retreat for those seeking a Cornish getaway. In the most dramatic location set above the Atlantic Ocean you will, to your absolute delight, discover Sunset Cottage, aptly named as this is one of the best spots in West Cornwall to watch the sunset over the sea.

The cottage itself offers a homely retreat to escape to at the end of the day with relaxed, comfy interiors and plentiful amenities. Neutral hues throughout make the cottage an invitingly calm and restful space throughout and the ultimate escapism from the pace of modern-day life. 

This charming 1837 miners' cottage overlooks the sea. Immerse yourself in its rustic allure and breathtaking coastal views. The cottage invites you to unwind in a cozy living space adorned with mining heritage. Nearby, explore coastal paths tracing rugged cliffs, hidden coves, and remnants of Cornwall's mining past. This haven offers tranquility and exploration in equal measure, promising a unique retreat amid Cornwall's storied landscape.

From the picturesque sea views gracing almost every room to the enchanting garden, this charming cottage boasts two elegantly furnished bedrooms, each adorned with luxurious superking beds and private ensuite bathrooms featuring both shower and bathtub facilities, ensuring comfort and relaxation.


Sunset Cottage is wonderfully located within the small village of Boscaswell in the heart of the far west of Cornwall. The area around here is a really magical place, located near to Pendeen it is often referred to as ‘Poldark Country’, it is in many ways untouched by modern-day life with its tin mining relics and unspoiled coastline. If you’re looking for a walker’s paradise to explore and to be off the beaten track then the comfort of this wonderful home is the perfect spot to do so. This part of West Cornwall showcases some of the most magnificent sunsets, and you can experience these from the comfort of aptly named Sunset Cottage.

You can walk straight to the outstanding Pendeen Lighthouse, historic Geevor mine, or peaceful Portheras Cove, a stunning locals beach so don't forget your walking boots. For surfers, hop in the car and you can be down on Sennen or Gwenver beaches, both a short drive away. You won’t be disappointed by the stretch of golden sands, dunes and crystal-clear water and popular surf break.

At the end of a day of beaching, head to one of the local pubs: The North Inn or The Queens Arms are both lovely for a sundowner in the garden or good pub grub. The wonder of Pendeen is that you’re never far from some of Cornwall’s best bits - grab an ice cream from the Moomaids Café in St Just square only 10 minutes away, or dine out in St Ives in less than 30 minutes or spend the day on the magical St Michaels Mount.

"A lovely home away from home, providing all the amenities you need.....The views from the master bedroom and kitchen/dinning are splendid - we caught a very stormy and windy weather and really enjoyed looking at the ocean and its beautiful big waves from the cottage!  Would definitely recommend for those seeking a quiet, cosy base to explore Cornwall from!
