MYN TEA, GWENVER
The balcony provides the picture-perfect place for sundowners to take in the views across the Atlantic and, on a clear day, further beyond to the Isles of Scilly. There’s no better place to spend a summer’s evening watching surfers in front of the sunset, or join them as the beach is so close. You can just about see the sea from the master bedroom while enjoying your morning cuppa.
Fantastic walks from the doorstep and Gwenver beach is dog friendly all year round! If you’re bringing your four-legged friend/s they will be in heaven.
With plenty of parking, a fire pit and outdoor seating, the secluded sunny garden is lovely for BBQs on a summer evening when it’s just too good to be inside.
Filled with light and spacious living spaces, Myn Tea is the ideal family holiday, romantic couple’s retreat and with the flexibility of the second bedroom, two couples or some friends.
Perfectly located in the quiet and secluded hamlet of Tregiffian, a ten-minute walk to Gwenver beach, Myn Tea is private and away from it all, yet places are within easy reach for exploring further afield. With so many attractions in the Far West it is a great place to explore from and return to.
This cottage is just a short walk from the beautiful surfing beach of Gwenver, which is a quieter beach around the corner from popular Sennen Cove. The busy towns of St Ives and Penzance are both a short drive, and some of the best beaches in the country are nearby.
It's designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and makes an amazing location for family holidays or romantic breaks all year round.
The mining areas of Cornwall are UNESCO World Heritage sites and offer an insight into the life of our ancestors.
This countryside inspired such authors as Daphne Dumorier, Rosemund Pilcher and more recently Patrick Gale. The art colonies nearby are famous from such greats as Barbara Helpworth, Stanhope Forbes and even Mark Rothko.
Myn Tea was designed to optimise the social space. Its 38-foot-long upstairs living, dining, and kitchen area is filled with light and offers captivating views across the fields and out to sea. A reverse living cottage the living space is on the first floor with the bedrooms and bathroom on the ground floor.
Comfort is important to us, and here you'll find two big sofas to sink back into. The sweetest wood burner will make autumn and winter nights something to look forward to, while the big balcony is the perfect place for a sundowner at the end of an exciting day of exploration.
COOKING & EATING
At Myn Tea aspiring chefs can have the fun of a well-equipped kitchen while staying in touch with family and friends in the open plan living space. Enjoy the views whilst washing up!
There's an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and the all important coffee machine for your morning cuppa.

MASTER BEDROOM: Super comfortable king size bed where you can just about see the sea while having your morning cup of tea. Double doors open out to the garden and the outside shower. It has an en-suite WC and sink.

FAMILY BATHROOM: Shower over the bath on the ground floor.
The master bedroom has an en-suite WC with sink.

PARKING: There's plenty of parking available.
WI-FI: Fast (Up to 50MB) broadband means you can stay connected. There is also phone reception and 4G at the house.
HEATING: Myn Tea has oil fired central heating, but its draw is 'Edna' the gorgeous wood burner that makes a winter stay even more tempting.

PETS: Two well-behaved dogs are welcome at £35 each per week/short break.
Far West Cornwall is doggie heaven! There’s plenty of beaches and coast paths for exploring. Please make sure they stay out of bedrooms and off the furniture and that you rub down muddy/sandy feet before they come in. Gwenver beach is dog friendly all year.

WHAT GUESTS ARE SAYING...
“Lovely house in a great location”
Joy – September 2023
“We enjoyed a wonderful time in this beautiful ‘surf house’. The view from the upper living room is breathtaking and the beach, which is a nice short 10-15min walk is just amazing (and not as crowded as Sennen beach nearby). We had a lovely time with our kids and will definitely come back! We already miss the house and Cornwall :)”
Tobias – August 2023
“This is a fantastic place; we loved the open plan living area and terrace looking out to sea, the beautiful garden, the incredible local beaches and especially the outdoor surf shower. Thank you for a wonderful week!”
Zoe – May 2023
“A gorgeous lofty seaside home, a stone’s throw from the most beautiful beach and coastal walks. A perfect family holiday, thank you!”
Marie – April 2023
"We highly recommend Myn Tea. It is a converted barn with a well appointed upstairs living area with fantastic views of the sea and two comfortable downstairs bedrooms. There is a very nice garden for barbecues and outside dining and it is a short walk down to Gwenver Beach. The friendly team at Cornish Way also provide a great service. The property was in immaculate condition and they were quick to respond to any queries."
