About this property

With all the charm of a Grade II listed seaside cottage, The Old Parsonage is a beautifully refurbished period property in Gwithian village and is the perfect place for spending a relaxing holiday with friends or family on Cornwall’s stunning north coast. Just a 10 minute walk over the dunes and you'll find yourself on the most wonderful beach where days can be spent paddling in the surf or sunbathing on swathes of white sand. Set on the edge of a 15 acre nature reserve, the cottage is also wonderfully positioned for outdoor adventure so when you're not down on the beach you'll be able to take in the local flora and fauna on nature walks and cycling excursions.

Utterly charming from the outset, the cottage’s interior is a fantastic mix of old and new with flagstone floors, whitewashed stone walls, and mullioned windows sitting alongside stylish furnishings and modern amenities. A wood burning stove in the living room as well as large cast iron radiators throughout the property, keep the cottage warm and toasty during the chillier months, while a modern kitchen and a stunning contemporary bathroom add an air of luxury to the home.

A bright conservatory / breakfast room leads out to an established garden complete with built-in charcoal BBQ, where guests can relax in the sunshine or enjoy alfresco dining.
