A light, spacious barn conversion above the sea on the Cornish cliffs with a gem of a beach and Coast path just a few minutes walk away. Porthleven a few mins by car. Double room has a king size bed & looks out over the terrace to the sea and coast.
'Covva' is a light, spacious barn conversion nestled in the idyllic cliff-top hamlet of Rinsey, directly above Rinsey beach - a favourite with locals. Close by are the villages of Porthleven - famous for its fantastic restaurants and fishing harbour - and Praa Sands beach, great for surfing and swimming. St Michael's Mount is a 15 minute drive away. The house is full of authentic Cornish character, with comfortable and artistic open plan living spaces. There are fantastic sea views from both floors across Mounts Bay and the surrounding cliff tops.
Your Accomodation: I offer B&B for 2 people in one double room. The room is spacious and light with a comfortable king-size bed and view across the front terrace and out across the sea, Mounts Bay and the Lizard point. The room is next door to the bathroom, which has a combined bath and shower; heated towel rack and shaving unit. Your rooms together comprise their own distinct area with an additional door closing off the space to the rest of the house - so have a good sense of privacy.
I also have a twin room available as an alternative to the double - please ask me for more details if this is more convenient for you.
Living spaces: There is a colourful, sunny porch with views out to the sea, with sofas perfect for lounging and reading. The fully equipped kitchen and dining room area is on the ground floor and open plan - with dining table for 6 - both looking out onto the front garden and patio. From the kitchen there is a small pantry area which connects to your bathroom and two bedrooms. The large open plan living room space is upstairs with views on three sides - fantastic sea views across Mounts Bay to the front and field views inland. The living space is airy and sunny, with sofas, books, games, a piano and other instruments, TV and DVDs.
Outdoors: There is a patio terrace with sea views at the front of the house which gets the sun right through into the early evening, with large wooden table, chairs and canvas umbrella - great for barbecues, drinks and eating outside. There is a large private country garden at the back of the house with field and countryside views, which gets the sun throughout the day well into the evening.
The path to the beach, coast path and Wheal Prosper tin mine leads directly from the front of the house. The South West Coast path starts a 1 minute walk from the house.
The house is right at the end of the lane so there is no passing traffic apart from an occasional neighbour parking. There is also no street lighting - so great for seeing the stars at night!
There is plenty of free parking - a private driveway space for one large car (or two smalls ones) and additional spaces on the track in front of the house.
Covva has been a much loved family home for many years and I love living here - I want guests to feel truly at home and to feel its special character as if it's their own. Living next to the sea in Rinsey is such a wonderful thing - my hope is that you will find all the relaxation, fun and adventure you desire in this space and that you will love it as much as I do!
Guests will have access to the whole house and all outdoor areas throughout their stay, apart from two rooms upstairs where I stay. You can help yourself to tea and coffee anytime, and use the kitchen to cook meals. I will lay out a simple continental breakfast in the mornings.
Interaction with guests
I live at the property - occupying an upstairs bedroom. I will greet guests on arrival, am on hand to give advice about the area or any local events and deal with any questions or problems. I also lay out a light breakfast in the mornings. However, I will not encroach on your privacy. My priority is for you to enjoy the space and have a relaxing holiday.
Other things to note
I have 1 x travel cot suitable for an infant under 2 years old, and 1 x high-chair, plus some children's toys. 1 infant under 2 years old is permitted as part of the booking free of charge, with the travel cot being accommodated in your bedroom. Children's bedding is not currently provided. Please let me know if you are planning on bringing an infant so I can let you know exactly what is available.
I can also provide B&B for 4 guests (this double room plus an adjacent twin room) or can rent out the entire house. Please see my alternative listings here:

Please respect my space as you would your own home.
Please do not smoke indoors - although smoking is fine on the terrace at the front of the house.
Nothing other than toilet paper to be flushed down the toilet and please use minimal toilet paper (to avoid unwanted blockages!) as we rely on a septic tank.
I try to run an environmentally conscious home, so really encourage my guests to not waste water and use the recycling boxes provided.
All guests must be booked through the reservation request including children. Please contact me with any questions on sleeping arrangements or capacity.
