About Sara

Chris grew up in the Midlands, he was an antique dealer but is now retired. Sara grew up in Penzance and works in arts & complimentay therapies. We live just around the corner from the Hay Loft in The Bowjy, Trevowhan, Morvah.

Sara purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Sara chose South West Cornwall

The Hay Loft sits in one of the most beautiful parts of South West Cornwall, next to beautiful moorland and sea cliffs where I have spent hours sitting and watching birds and seals swim in the water below. The view from the upstairs window shows the S shaped bend in the road that leads along a stunning scenic drive to St Ives. Here, there is no light pollution so at night you can see all the stars.

The feel of the place is timeless with ancient granite outcrops, full of wildlife and native plants yet there are also nearby small villages and towns to explore, such as Pendeen, St Just, Penzance & St Ives where you can find supermarkets & clothes and gift shops, cafes and art galleries

What makes this cottage unique

The first thing I loved about the Hay Loft was the entrance which is a big granite lintel that you pass underneath to enter the cottage it reminded me of an old cornish fogou or cave

I love the cottage because it is very comfortable to be in, especially with the wood burner blazing in the evening. It is so nice to just sit and watch television or read a book ( there are lots of books to look at ) or to sit outside and look at the dramatic moorland view up to the tin mine chimney at Garden Mine Cottage on the hill opposite... it's a truly relaxing sanctuary with lots of lovely decorative quirks that make it a special place

Beautiful,cosy,cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Hayloft was a beautiful cottage.

The attention to detail and the warm welcome we received were superb.

Coming back in the evening after days out to a woodburner and peace and quiet was a great feeling.

We will certainly return.

Thank you Chris and Sarah. 😀

Perfect position for exploring the Cornish peninsular

  • 5 of 5

Everything you would want, a lovely place to stay, quiet and cosy. Couple of pubs not far away serving good affordable food. If we are going to stay in Cornwall again would look to book again.

Feel reluctant to tell you all how good this is!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We feel that if we tell you how wonderful the Hayloft is, then we wont be able to book it again when we want it. And we definitely want to return.

But not being selfish people, we will share it with you.

Just love this wonderful cottage. homely, immaculate, with absolutely everything in it you are likely to need, Including a large selection of books. The log burner was a huge bonus, making the evenings so warm and cosy.

Great position, very quiet, village a mile down the road and central to St Ives and Penzance, and the most beautiful beaches and good walking area.

Our host, Chris couldn't be more helpful. We also recommend Chris and Sara's other cottage next door, having stayed there in the summer which is equally lovely.

Please don't go!!!, as we want to go again whenever we can!!

Could happily live in this cottage and area,

Thank you Chris and Sara for sharing this and looking after us so well.

Hope to see you again soon

Minack Theatre is a gorgeous open air rock amphitheatre near the beautiful Porthcurno beach, with a museum and a cafe on site. Mousehole is a small but prettty old fishing port to walk around with narrow streets and restaurants and craft & art galleries famous for it's illuminations at Christmas. St Ives is a lovely old town famous for it's art scene since the 1950's with art galleries, eateries , and clothing shops surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches offering good bathing and boat trips, also for art lovers there is the Tate Gallery and the Barbara Hepworth museum. Ancient monuments such as Men - an - Tol ( the holed stone), Lanyon Quoit, Nine maidens, the Merry Maidens, Carn Euny and Chysauster are all worth a visit as well as the atmospheric Carn Galver, a high moorland rock outcrop overlooking the sea. Lots of quaint local churches such as Zennor and Sancreed are worth a look and most of the local pubs hold pub quizzes on week nights which are good fun
