"What can we say ..... except fabulous!

What a fantastic place to stay, tranquil and cosy. So lovely...Huge compliments to Martin and Caroline for the thought and detail put into the Woodcutters Cabin from everything you need no matter the weather to the extras in a beautiful garden view with the secluded outdoor bath to have a soak after the many places to discover and visit only a stroll or short drive away.We always try to get places that have something magical and are unique. This has got to top the list. "

"We had an amazing stay in Cornwall, thank you for all of your help. The Cabin was idyllic and we look forward to booking again in the future. I’m not quite sure who had the better time; us or the dog! It really was perfect"

Charlotte & Matthew Hayward - May 2019.

"We have just returned from a weeks’ stay at the Woodcutters Cabin and one word sums it up “fantastic”. We had the best time. The Cabin has everything you need. The gardens are stunning and we spent many a morning/evening just admiring the stunning views. The outdoor bath was a bonus and it was just spectacular lying in it and watching the birds flying around you. The Cabin itself is beautiful and the log fire made the evenings in very cosy. I would definitely recommend the Cabin to anyone looking to get away from it all."

Tess Stone - May 2019

“A really comfortable and well thought out place to stay. For a real escape and some calm, we highly recommend it. We loved our stay! The cabin was so comfortable and a fantastic base for a few days exploring the area. We'll miss breakfast on the decking enjoying the amazing garden each morning!”

"Wonderful retreat - I didn't want to leave

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We absolutely loved our time in the Woodcutter's Cabin. It was cosy and well-equipped. Bread, milk, jam, butter and other items were left for us at arrival. The huge gardens are beautiful and there are some ponds. There's also a viewing position from where you can see the sea. The bed is comfortable and the wood-burner is very effective. There are rabbits, squirrels, birds of prey and, at night, bats to watch. My favourite moment was listening to the birds and looking up at the silhouette of the trees as the sun went down whilst lying in the hot tub. We didn't see another person whilst we were there - this is a great retreat if you need some time away from everyday stresses for a while. I didn't want to leave.

This is a great place for some solitude, comfort and peace and also to disconnect devices and reconnect with the natural world and natural cycles."

Rachel Atree - September 2018

"The Cabin is lovely! Quirky and cosy and the grounds are really beautiful, it’s so peaceful!... lovely comfy bed and the bathroom was spotless and the rainfall shower is a delight! Your directions and useful information guide prior to going were also excellent. Thank you!"

Lois Aslett - September 2018

“What a beautiful little cabin close to Penzance. Communication was fast and easy, the description on how to get to the cottage was on the spot. The cabin itself is perfect for 2 people, the garden was absolutely stunning. If you are looking for peace and quiet, it´s perfect. Highly recommended! Thanks Sebastian!”

Stephanie - June 2018

"We had such a wonderful stay and will be back soon! It was such a special time - thank you."

Skye Fenton-Wels - June 2018

"The woodcutters cabin is the most peaceful, beautiful place that we have visited yet (and we've been to quite a few! ) For people who just want to chill and relax this is highly recommended. We will definitely be going back in the very near future!"

"We had the most wonderful time at woodcutters... It was so warm and toasty and the outdoor bath was such a luxury."

"The Woodcutters Cabin, Penzance"

Experience country living at its very best from this luxury, dog friendly holiday home in Cornwall located between St Ives and Penzance with the numerous beaches and villages of west Cornwall all in easy reach. 

The Woodcutters cabin offers luxury open plan accommodation with all creature comforts taken care of and a stunning private veranda overlooking 3 acres of beautiful private gardens. There is even a unique outside bath where you can soak away overlooking the enchanting gardens or at night looking up at the star-filled skies.

Painstakingly built by local craftsmen using wood from trees in the grounds, from my first visit I completely fell in love with the Woodcutter’s Cabin. This truly unique property has a spacious open plan interior that is entirely bespoke, with its gorgeous handmade kitchen and a stunning driftwood bed to curl up in after a day exploring this magical part of West Cornwall. The sitting room has a great wood burning stove to keep you toasty and French doors lead out to the decked terrace overlooking your own little paradise.

Outside in the gardens, there are numerous areas to enjoy, including a sitting area where you get glimpses of the sea in the distance. There is even a fire pit where you can warm up enjoying the amazing night skies under a blanket of stars. It’s a nature lover’s paradise awash with wildlife, including visiting badgers and foxes and resident shrews, rabbits, frogs, buzzards and owls. The gardens really are a delight and if you’re bringing your four-legged friend they  will be in doggie heaven (Pets allowed anytime outside July and August). There are almost three acres shared only with Martin and Caroline, the lovely owners of neighbouring Primrose Cottage. Treat all the grounds as your own although there is a near acre directly outside the cabin that is private to you.

If it’s seclusion away from the everyday hectic world you’re looking for then you may well have found your perfect holiday…


The Boskednan area of New Mill is a collection of beautiful cottages, all private from one another, nestling in the hidden shelter of a stream-fed valley where gunnera (the fairy tale giant rhubarb like plant) reaches up, casting its gentle green tinge to all below it. Although you will feel lost in idyllic countryside it is only a ten minute drive to Penzance or Marazion with its fabulous beach overlooking the famous St Michaels Mount. The Woodcutters Cabin is pretty much equidistant from the north and south coasts. While it's inland you could easily walk the 4kms to the north coast, and you can see the south coast between the trees.


The cosy living area is centered on the large wood burner and its a wonderful place to relax in with a large comfy sofa and armchair. There is a 40 inch flat screen TV. Its internet ready with Freesat and access to Netflix and iPlayer.

Cooking and Eating

The hand built wood and slate kitchen has everything you need to cook up a feast together with a Bosch electric oven and induction hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer and washing machine. There are a table and chairs perfectly positioned to enjoy your meals looking out of the French doors into the gardens.


The bedroom area has a majestic driftwood king size bed with a super comfy John Lewis mattress. There is a chest of drawers and a small handmade wardrobe.


The luxury shower room has underfloor heating, a heated towel rail and of course there is the outside bath with endless piping hot water. Just be careful walking back into the cabin with wet feet. Towels and bedding will be supplied for you, just remember to bring your beach towels.


GARDENS: The term garden hardly does justice to the extensive outside space at the Woodcutter’s Cabin with peace and quiet guaranteed. Directly outside the cabin is almost an acre for your private use which includes a sitting area with a fire pit and at the far corner a spot where you can view the sea in the distance. The outside terrace has two steamer sun loungers and a bistro table and chairs for lazy breakfasts. If you’re a nature lover the grounds are filled with many rare specimen plants and shrubs and they are surrounded by wild countryside with breathtaking walks in every direction.
PETS: Dogs are allowed anytime outside July and August. This is a dog's paradise. You're a long way from main roads, and the footpaths and tracks head off to the moors from right outside the cottage, and for the more adventurous walker - on up to the coast. One or two dogs are welcome at £35 each per stay. Please make sure they stay off the furniture and that you rub down muddy feet before they come in.
PARKING: There's plenty of room to park but you won't get a low-slung sports car up the track and must drive with caution in bad weather.
WI-FI: There is free unlimited Wifi at the Cabin

ACCESSIBILITY: The Woodcutters Cabin is not suitable for children or those with limited mobility due to the remote location and numerous steps and paths. It is fine for a baby although do call us first to make sure it’s suitable for you.
