The Details

  • Location

    Where is it?

    Ellenglaze is a captivating Grade II-listed 500-year-old farmhouse, which has been elegantly and lovingly renovated throughout. This enchanting retreat features a large private indoor heated swimming pool, hot tub, surround sound cinema projector and two acres of grounds.

    Holywell Bay is a wide beach on the north Cornwall coast, flanked by rolling sand dunes. The open space is popular with surfers, bodyboarders, families and walkers. Catch a morning wave, stroll across the sand with the dog, or relax with a beach barbecue while the kids play in the stream.

    On the beach, you can explore the fascinating grotto-like Holywell Cave with its calcium deposits, and at low tide, discover an old Argentinian coaster just offshore. At high tide, wander the sand dunes, some of which are 60 feet in height, and find the perfect spot for a picnic. The dunes also provide a romantic setting to watch the sun go down.
