A unique off-grid period Cornish holiday home

An eco-friendly cottage overlooking the sea

Solomon's Island offers you an opportunity to stay in a unique period Cornish holiday home in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The cottage is self-sufficient with it's own water supply, and solar arrays for power. It has an oil-fired Rayburn, and a wood burning stove by the settle. Inside you will find the accommodation is welcoming and comfortable, with plenty of period charm.

If you are wanting somewhere to stay for the seaside and coastal paths, that offers privacy and tranquility, then Solomon's Island gives you all this and much more. Portheras Cove is the nearest beach and the walk down from the farmyard will take you along a track dozzey with red admiral butterflies and blackberries.

A unique location

Located high on the hillside surrounded by farmland and heath, you can try and catch a glimpse of the fabled ‘green flash’ as the sun sets into the sea. Nearest neighbours are cows and rabbits, and sightings of the rare Cornish chough sitting on the roof are not unusual.

It's all about Peace and Quiet

The cottage does not have a TV, a land line or WiFi, but what it does have is an abundance of board games, coupled with peace and quiet, to allow you to reconnect with your friends and family.

A spectacular landscape

You can stroll to Chûn Quoit and on up to Chûn Castle over the charmingly named Woongumpus Common, or walk down to one of Cornwall's furthest-flung beaches at Portheras Cove, where seals are regularly sighted.
