Escape modern life with a stay at Skipper’s Cabin

Padstow, Cornwall

Enjoy the splendid isolation and dramatic sea views in the rustic retreat that is Cornwall’s Skipper’s Cabin.

Skipper’s Cabin is a small but perfectly formed traditional stone shepherd’s hut, at the head of a secluded Cornish valley that’s been sensitively renovated to make it the ultimate rural retreat. The location couldn’t be better – the valley runs down to Porth Mear Cove and the beautiful beaches of Porthcothan, Mawgan Porth and Watergate are just a few miles away, making this a perfect base for coastal walks.

Don’t worry about making a noise – your nearest neighbours will be local livestock and an occasional barn owl. The cottage might look rustic but all mod cons are provided, from a wet room to a sleek modern kitchen and barbeque – perfect for cooking up al fresco lunches on sunny days.
