You may be a fair-weather visitor or a winter wanderer, but there’s one thing that draws us all to the very edge of the beautiful Cornish coast, whether that be to gaze upon it in all its vast glory, or immerse ourselves into it from head to toe; the sea.
Glistening and sparkling in the sunlight of summer, and deep, dark and brooding in cool tones of blue and grey in the winter, the Cornish sea is quite unlike anything else, so it’s no wonder that we’re finding more and more visitors looking to find themselves as close to it as possible during their stay, and if they can glimpse it through a well-positioned window as the sun rises or the evenings closes in, well… does it get much better than that?
The perfect escape
Set in the perfect position to overlook the Atlantic Ocean, in the most jaw-dropping location of Widemouth Bay, 2 The Mallows makes for a unique coastal retreat that is sure to provide a wonderful backdrop for a holiday that will be remembered for years to come, and with space for up to eight guests, there’s certainly no shortage of space. Having recently undergone a full renovation, The Mallows embodies a light and airy beachside chic feel that provides a wonderfully peaceful atmosphere, just perfect for an escape from the chaos of everyday life.
The house itself
What are holidays about if not coming together with friends and family over food and something to drink to reminisce on a sun-drenched day on the beach, or a wild and blustery adventure on the South West Coast Path, which after all is only a short walk away? The open-plan kitchen and living area complete with a wood-burning stove invites just this, from which you can spill into the dining room to sit around the table and share fresh holiday memories over a meal to warm the cockles and sooth the soul before taking a seat in front of the fire to contemplate the days ahead. With WiFi, a 49” Smart TV, Sky Q and a DVD player, cosy evenings in are encouraged while you plan tomorrow’s adventure.
Luxurious havens of calm relaxation, the bedrooms welcome weary heads to rest on plump pillows for some much-needed sleep after a busy day enjoying all that Cornwall has to offer. Glints of the ocean under a moonlit sky through the bedroom window as you close your eyes transports you into dreams before you wake in the morning to meet the ocean outside once more.
Al Fresco Lifestyle
After a day on the beach, just 100 yards away, you can wash the salt from your skin under the outdoor shower before hanging up wetsuits and leaning surfboards in the secure storage area. Then it’s time to kick back in the sheltered and sunny enclosed rear garden. The large patio area makes al fresco dining a breeze and when the day comes to an end, the seating area at the front of the house affords sunset displays that you will remember forever.
Hive of activity
With some incredible places to eat in the vicinity, not to mention some of the most incredible walks and trails to be enjoyed all year round, as well as activities for the whole family to enjoy nearby, 2 The Mallows is at the centre of a Cornish hub of activity just waiting to be explored at any time of year, and waits to invite you home at the end of a fun-filled day.
