Charlestown, Cornwall, UK
Luxurious beds feature high on our holiday wishlist, and the beds
at The Cottage get full marks. There's an oak-framed king in the
master bedroom, and a funky cabin-style double in the second
bedroom (a nod to the town's nautical heritage), which in honesty
is too small for a couple, but would suit an older child perfectly.
Both are clad in top-quality White Company bed linen, and
hypo allergenic pillows and duvets are available on request.
As with all of Antonia's properties, there's lots of lovely detail in both bedrooms - hand carved lamps, antique drawers, fresh orchids, seagrass flooring - and there's an overiding feeling of calm and peace, so you'll sleep deeply.
We loved the spoiling bathroom, with its cast-iron tub for long bubbly soaks, or an overhead shower if you prefer. Hot water is constant, organic soaps are provided and each room has a hairdryer. No need to worry about the heating in winter either - this place is geared up for all weather.
Downstairs there's a oak-floored sitting room with a tiny sofa, 2 armchairs and a wood-burning stove. The TV has a built-in DVD player, and there's a stack of DVDs to keep you entertained in the evenings.
