This precious stone set in the silver sea

An idyllic Cornish cottage, a stone’s throw from the sea, with panoramic views from almost every room.

Battery Cottage is an enchanting bolthole far removed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. In winter months think of sheepskin rugs on flagstone floors, driftwood frames, star lanterns, an Aga and an open fire. In Summer, have breakfast on the beach, pack up a picnic for a cliff-top walk, watch the sunset on the terrace or just kick back and relax at this heavenly hideaway.

Perfect for singles, romantic getaways or families for fun-filled seaside holidays. Set your own pace.
