BFB's Overview

For parents who’re still getting used to a new bundle of joy, The Cabin is just the place to discover the precious pleasures of becoming a family. A little bit quirky and very cool, owners Antonia and David have weaved their holiday cottage magic to transform a pair of Grade II listed buildings into a bijou bolthole for two and a baby.

From White Company Egyptian cotton linen to a groovy retractable sail that sweeps over an enclosed courtyard, The Cabin has been beautifully designed, both inside and out, to help guests unwind. Whether chilling out to music on the squishy sofa, sinking into the sumptuous king size bed or chilling out over a leisurely al fresco lunch, parents are certain to feel the stress levels begin to drop. Even packing up to come to The Cabin is stress free because so much essential baby kit is provided, including steam steriliser, food whizzer, travel cot, high chair, baby monitor, buggy and much more (see grey box for full details).

In keeping with the secret hideaway concept, The Cabin is tucked away in the flower gardens of a grand, Grade II listed Georgian house, overlooking the historic harbour town of Charlestown, recently granted World Heritage status. Although The Cabin offers private tranquility, it is toddling distance to the beaches, tall ships and fat crab sarnies to be enjoyed around the quays – the essence of Cornwall right on the doorstep.

Accommodation overview

The Cabin is a quirky set of character filled outbuildings which connect via a tiny sail roofed outdoor terrace. The king size bedroom has charming low ceilings with space for a cot. The adjoining wet room has a powerful shower, basin and a loo with a view! Across the terrace there is an open plan sitting room/kitchen, designed for comfort, complete with squishy sofa, gas wood burner, digital television with built in DVD, an ipod dock and WiFi. The kitchen is fully equipped with a ceramic hob, electric oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, cooking utensils and crockery, plus a washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board in the wash house at the rear. The Cabin has a private garden and an enclosed courtyard for al fresco dining whatever the weather, thanks to the sail providing shade or shelter at the crank of the handle.


Please note: Short breaks are available in low season and in April and September by request.

Location Information

The picturesque harbour village of Charlestown has retained a great deal of its Georgian beauty, so much so that it is often used as a film set. Although it is small, it boasts a couple of good pubs, a bistro, a good new restaurant and a funky coffee shop, all of which welcome little ones. Surprisingly, the village also boasts a salon for indulgent treatments, perhaps by bartering with an afternoon of golf a the nearby course? A major benefit of being almost harbour-side is the access to delicious freshly caught fish. The fisherman generally stops by the cottage to collect orders, and comes highly recommended. A little further afield but well worth the trip to Truro is the aptly named ‘Cheese Shop’ - heaven for cheese fans! The two beaches within easy and stroller-friendly walk of the cottage are ideal for introducing toddlers to the delights of rockpooling and net fishing, whilst the Eden Project is practically on the doorstep and, if using the land train (tractor pulled train through the attractions), also very toddler friendly. The shop sells a great spotting book to keep kids interested and the café does decent nibbles. For an 'Enchanted Forest' experience, head to Cardinham Woods and stumble upon the wonderful tea shop set in a centuries old woodsman's cottage, with a handy children's play area outside and useful baby-changing room. But, with the tall 'pirate ships' and rockpooling adventures on the doorstep, many don't make it too far from the cottage.

  • This is a lovely property in a fabulous position and the facilities they provide for little ones is excellent. The only slight issue is space. If you have a little one who is on the move then you might find it a little tight.Review dated 28/07/2014

  • Beautiful little space with a lovely shaded private garden was perfect for the gloriously sunny week we've had, and being a stone's throw from the harbour and pebble beach meant lots of seagull and people watching for our little one!Review dated 26/07/2014

  • we had a wonderful time in beautiful accommodation in an amazing place with very very thoughtful hospitalityReview dated 17/11/2013

  • Fantastic property, we stated in the cabin, perfect tranquil little space for 2 bigs and a little. Antonia was very welcoming and had thought of everything!Review dated 08/10/2013

  • Fantastic place- just perfect for our first family holiday. Every need is catered for. We shall definitely be returning.Review dated 14/09/2013

  • We stayed as a couple with a 14 mth baby. The cabin is magical, tucked away in a lush garden, beautifully decorated with the highest quality appliances that make cooking seem fun! The owners are so welcoming and helpful too. We ordered the Great Grub the first night which was fantastic and organised for a couple of spa treatments that made our holiday. The area is quiet and picturesque, very relaxing. We are already booking our return next year!Review dated 01/08/2013

  • We had a fantastic time at the Cabin with my 7 month year old and husband. The Cabin is enchanting, hidden away at the top of a walled garden. The owners couldn't be more welcoming and helpful. It is fantastically kitted out and very well organised with everything we could need or want for our baby so we could leave London without all the baby paraphernalia ! We would definitely recommend it and go again.Review dated 12/12/2011

  • The design and attention to detail of The Cabin is just fantastic, and the location couldn't be better. We took our 14 month old daughter and she was free to run around in the secure garden.Review dated 02/10/2011

  • It was beautiful, but very small.... Rated 4 out of 5. Owner Responds: Just to clarify, the Bedroom is 14ft x 13ft, Shower room & dressing room approx 4ft x 16ft, the Sitting Room is 18'5ft x 8ft & the Kitchen is 18'3ft by 10'7ft.
