Top 10 reasons to stay at Little T

Occupying an enviable nook above the secret beach of Lundy Bay, a holiday of wild swimming, rugged rambling and starry night skies awaits you at this brand new, utterly sumptuous bolthole. We count down the top 10 reasons to be the first to stay at Little T.

1. The unique location

Little T is an unexpected discovery at the end of a Cornish country lane, settled in the quiet idyll of coastal bliss. Here wildflower lined paths and trickling streams amble down to the secret beach of Lundy Bay. You'll reach Little T by a quiet road leading towards New Polzeath and down a long private driveway. You can count on one hand how many properties enjoy this unique location.


2. The beautiful grounds

Set within a generous plot, you are sure to get your daily dose of sea salted air at Little T. From the expansive soft, green lawn sheltered by grassy banks to the wild meadow that leads to the coastal path; the outdoor spaces at Little T are truly divine. The built-in firepit area is the perfect place to gather as the sun sets to share tales of the day gone by around the crackling flames.


3. The dreamy interiors

Enter to a calming coastal oasis of fresh white walls and an abundance of natural daylight. Four blissful bedrooms provide a night-time sanctuary where the sound of waves crashing against the headland can be heard in the distance. Awake to the morning mist in the valley and enjoy morning coffee swathed in a soft throw, from the delightful window seat in the master bedroom.


4. The breathtaking views

The beauty of the luxurious open plan social spaces is only exceeded by the panoramic views of the wild North Cornish coastline. Throw open the doors to the balcony and drink in the view, uninterrupted as the expansive lawn melts into blue hues of the Atlantic Ocean.


5. The golden sandy beaches

At Little T you are minutes from an array of beautiful beaches. Lundy Bay is within walking distance and just a two-minute drive away is New Polzeath, with the secluded Baby Bay to one side and the popular surfing beach of Polzeath to the other. From Polzeath you can access the coastal path along to Daymer Bay and Rock Beach. By car, the popular village of Rock is less than ten minutes away and here you can enjoy the large sandy beach, take a sailing lesson or hop on the ferry across to Padstow.


6. The picturesque walks

From Little T, you are moments away from some of Cornwall's most scenic coastal paths. On the footpath down to Lundy Bay you'll discover coastal flowers, wildlife, a collapsed sea cave and a wonderful vantage point down to a tiny bay. At low tide you can get to Lundy Bay by the wooden steps and enjoy a picnic, barbecue or a dip in the sea. You can access footpaths to Pentire Head, The Rumps and Port Quin here too.


7. Living al fresco

Enjoy cocktails on the balcony or a local tipple whilst reclining on the wooden steamers. Gather round the dining table for a holiday meal together with a breathtaking backdrop then head to the firepit for some marshmallow toasting.


8. The social spaces

The generous social spaces ensure you can make the most of spending quality time together. After a day of coastal adventures, prepare a holiday feast in the spacious kitchen which you can enjoy around the stylish dining table. As night falls, retreat to the plush sofas in the lounge, the crackling log burner a comfort on a chilly evening, or head down to the TV room to enjoy your favourite movie.


9. The spa-like bathrooms

You will feel like you are in your own private spa in the bath and shower rooms at Little T. The elegant freestanding bathtub in the en-suite demands to be filled with bubbles, soft light pouring in from above through the porthole window. Discover the elegant night lighting in the WC on the first floor.


10. The relaxation space

Little T is a place to revive and reconnect. Start the day with a yoga session in the dedicated relaxation space. Why not book in a private yoga session followed by a massage? The perfect way to slip into holiday mode in no time at all.


Little T is available for limited weeks throughout June, July and August 2020. Get in touch to secure your week in paradise.
