BREATHTAKING, panoramic, uninterrupted SEA VIEWS. The artist, FRED YATES, former studio. The rooms are awash with a spectrum of pastel colour reflected from the sea. Windows capture ever changing seascapes , framing scenes of small boats drifting on water as smooth as glass, fishermen busily emptying lobster pots, surface ripples morphing into dazzling brilliance in the sunlight or winter's wild crashing Atlantic waves. Impassioned by its loveliness, artists painted here. From the pretty garden you feel you could almost reach over and touch St. Michael’s Mount and paddle your feet in the bay. Nearby the coastal path takes you to deserted sandy coves fringed with wild flowers, where seals loiter in the surf.

The welcome bottle of wine scones and cream was very nice.The cottage was very shabby chic sofas not very comfortable and the downstairs bedroom was cold and damp.A lovely spot though overlooking st. Michael's mount.

There are electric fires and the cost of electricity is included in the price. Humidity is inevitable when you are so close to the sea I'm afraid. It's often over 90%.
