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 Morvah

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

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

Charming and cosy cottage near one of the most stunningly beautiful bits of coastpath in Britain

  • 5 of 5

This cottage can be dangerous to your health! It's just so tempting to stay indoors, tucked up beside the woodburner, surrounded by beautiful things instead of going for healthy walks on the glorious coast. There's a huge and eclectic selection of novels, books on art and biographies of people who are actually interesting, mini works of art and intriguing objects, and a proper kitchen. It's charming and unique and only lacks a spatula. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Definitely worth getting out walking as there are few places more beautiful.

Peacefull & Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We thought 3 nights would be perfect for the getaway to Cornwall... We were wrong. The Hay Loft is comfortable, everything you need to relax, cards, books, TV and of course the country side, no need for hand-held games etc. Sara and Chris welcomed us like long lost friends, so we will be going back and staying longer

A truly unique and peaceful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The property is totally unique and elegantly furnished. The owners, whilst very friendly and helpful and always available are also totally unobtrusive.

It's rural location is very peaceful and the Coast Path with its spectacular views is just a few minutes walk away - ideal for a pleasant stroll before breakfast.

Beautiful cottage, highly recomended

  • 5 of 5

A very warm and cosy cottage filled with everything you need including a log burner. Excellent location with stunning coastal walks, beautiful beaches and many interesting things to do and see (we ran out of time even after extending our holiday). Chris and Sara are very warm and welcoming hosts always there if you need them. Will definitely return a Gem of a place .

Beautiful cottage and surrounding area.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the hayloft. The cottage is wonderful and gave us the impression we were on a treasure hunt whenever we were in there. Inside there are countless books and curious items positioned around.

The facilities are also great with a lovely cottage kitchen, a good shower and plenty of space to store food clothes.

Our hosts were very courteous and checked to see if we were enjoying our stay at the beginning and towards the end of our break.

If you stay here you will get a break in a lovely cottage which is quite rural. There are lots of lovely walks for scenery, but you will probably want to drive to the local shop or to places of interest such as St. Ives or Land's End. This is just what we wanted and we would highly recommend the hayloft to anyone looking for a week away from it all.

Ellis and Lauren.

A fabulous hide-away

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 nights here at the end of July. The cottage is very spacious for two people, well equipped and beautifully furnished with a variety of art and artefacts. Stunning scenery nearby though we were unlucky with the weather :-(
