Overview

About the property

Huge vaulted living space, 2 large bedrooms, luxury bathroom, private terrace,

On the edge of the small hamlet of Tregiffian, above Gwenver Beach, is this most romantic cottage that has it all. Stunning views out across the big blue sea, a large, comfortable social space, a balcony for sundowners and a charming garden.

Filled with light by day, you'll want to stay here your whole holiday. In fact several guests have come back in winter to take a month over a project, to write, paint or to indulge in the luxury of reflection.

LIVING: Myn Tea was designed to optimse 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.

Comfort is important to us, and here you'll find two big sofas to sink back into. The sweetest little 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.

EATING: Great holidays are so often about eating well, and that can be in the pubs and restaurants and cooking up a storm at home. 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 space.

SLEEPING: The master bedroom has a super comfortable king sized bed where you can just about see the sea while having your morning cup of tea. Double doors open out to the garden. The second bedroom has two singles.

BATHING: Myn Tea has a small family bathroom with a shower over the bath.

HEATING: Myn Tea has oil fired central heating, but its draw is Edna the gorgeous little wood burner that makes a winter stay even more tempting.

LINEN AND TOWELS: towels are included in all cottages at The Cornish Way. Just bring your beach towels.

GARDEN: Myn Tea has an interesting enclosed garden with plenty of seating, and a fire pit for taking the chill off those summer evenings when it's just too good to go inside.

PARKING: There's plenty of parking available.

PETS: We're dog friendly at Myn Tea, the costal paths start from our door, and our local beach Gwenver (Gwynver) is dog friendly too. We charge just £25 per dog for their stay.

WIFI: is freely available.

About Seb Blakemore

Seb has been lucky enough to have lived in West Cornwall for the past 7 years. After coming down for an extended break he fell in love with this beautiful area and never left!

Based in St Just, Seb took on an old wreck and worked to create a comfortable home. This is now also the headquarters for The Cornish Way who look after luxury cottages for a select group of owners and their lucky guests.

The aim of The Cornish Way is to provide holidays that fill you with joy - and the bespoke selection of cottages Seb offers are sure to deliver.

Why Seb Blakemore chose Sennen

Views so good you'll want to sit and watch the sea all day. The beach and rugged countryside of Cornwall's far west are at your door, but when you need to kick back in a gorgeous place, the gardens will welcome you home.

What makes this barn unique

If a holiday by the sea, with absorbing views, in a spacious comfortable home is your dream then look no further.

On the edge of the small hamlet of Tregiffian, above Gwenver Beach, is the most romantic cottage that has it all. Stunning views out across the big blue sea, a large, comfortable social space, a balcony for sundowners and a charming garden.

Filled with light by day, you'll want to stay here your whole holiday. In fact several guests have come back in winter to take a month over a project, to write, paint or to indulge in the luxury of reflection.

Our lovely stay at Myn Tea

  • 5 of 5

A lovely place: home away from home! With a unique view on the Atlantic Ocean, Myn Tea gave us the cosiness we were looking for. Either you want to spend a romantic stay or a family holiday (like we did), this place will give what you are looking for!

Wonderful cottage in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely cottage. So many nice touches. The garden also looks great but as we were there in February we didn't really get the chance to fully appreciate it. We loved Gwenver and Sennen beaches, though the climb back up from Gwenever gets the heart going.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We're delighted you enjoyed this very special part of the world. We love it in winter as it's quiet and often wild - we're always impressed when guests choose this time of year for their break. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Best wishes. Kelvin.

Great stay in a lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We never thought it could be THAT nice at the Cornish coast during this time of the year, but it turned out to be very recovering. This was due to the fact that Myn Tea cottage is so warm and friendly and offers these stunning views on the Sennen bay - you enter the door and feel like coming home. The owner has done everything to make his guests feel comfortable, his individual taste and style makes Myn Tea extraordinary.

The surroundings are both wild and beautiful, you can walk in each direction and always find footpaths with great views, especially those at the Coastal Path. It was not the first time and won´t be the last time that we will stay in this cottage !

Owner's Response: What a great review - thank you. We love Cornwall in winter, and the further west the better. It can be warm, it can be wild, but it is always interesting. Thank you for your kind words. I'm delighted you enjoyed our special place and I hope we see you again before long. Best wishes. Kelvin.

Stunning Cottage with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with the property the moment we arrived. The stunning views out to sea from the upstairs open planned lounge were incredible! Our first night was spent sitting on the balcony drinking a glass of wine courtesy of Kelvin, the very helpful and thoughtful owner, and watching the magnificent sunset. The house felt like home with lots of lovely personal touches and great attention to detail. The bed was so comfortable and all the rooms are beautiful with very artistic touches. The situation of this cottage is perfect for leaving the car behind with stunning coastal walks straight from the door and equally good for surfing at Sennen. The whole cottage and gardens are beautifully designed, we genuinely did not want to leave .

We highly recommend this cottage , no-one would be disappointed!

Thank you so much for a fantastic holiday. We will be back for sure.

It was great meeting you, it's the best bit about this little business (well, that and being able to live here). We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Best wishes. Kelvin.

Outstanding Cottage in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Myn Tea, the accommodation is perfect in our book which is very clean, well laid out and for us is perfetly located being very close to Sennen Cove with great walk on it's doorstep and beaches close by and the views are great. Myn Tea is very well equiped and furnished, plenty of welcoming touches around the place to make you feel so welcome and at home, Kelvin certainly knows how to look after his guests.

There are leaflets on what to do and a great selection of books & dvds. to choose from.

Kitchen is a pleasure to work with and Myn Tea offers great nights sleep... we will certainly be going back. Andy

Car: recommended

Myn Tea is on the edge of Tregiffian, a small hamlet at the end of a mile long lane.

The uninterrupted view looks out across a couple of fields towards the Scilly Isles, and is perfect for enjoying some of the amazing sunsets we get over the sea.

The walk to the beach takes about ten minutes back down the lane, and Sennen with its pubs, cafes and restaurant is just a little further on.

The cliff path starts pretty much from the door step.

West Cornwall is a stunning region offering huge variety including beautiful beaches, rugged cliffs, secret coves and wild moor land. It's steeped in history, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of the mining heritage.

It's attractive for the art colonies of St Ives, Newlyn, Penzance and Lamorna. Surfers flock to the havens of Gwenver and Sennen. Cyclists come for the challenge of the hills and the beauty of the roads. Twitchers come to spot our unusual feathered visitors. And the rest of us love the romance and ideal family holiday location.
