The kitchen also leads directly into the dining room, a light filled space with great art work and stunning views. It comfortably seats eight in colourful Phillippe Starck Ghost chairs set around an old sea captain’s wooden table.

In front of the dining room and the adjacent sitting room lies a family-sized conservatory with extraordinary views of the Lizard, St. Michael’s Mount, the village, the harbour and the tiny St. Clements Island.

This is the ideal place to relax with a coffee, a good book or simply be mesmerised by the ever changing colours of the sea and sky.

A south facing door leads onto a covered decking area with a big glass table and chairs, a perfect place to have breakfast on a sunny morning and perhaps spot some seals, basking-sharks or dolphins.

Through another set of double doors from the conservatory you enter the cosy sitting room with its big open fire place, comfy leather sofa and chairs and its quirky furniture made from the owner’s decommissioned wooden fishing boat.

From these rooms the view of the sunrise over the lizard and the sound of the sea breaking over St. Clements Island remind you on waking that you are in beautiful Cornwall.
