For parents who’re still getting used to a new bundle of joy, The Sea 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 Sea 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 Sea 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, which was recently granted World Heritage status. Although the cabin offers private tranquillity, 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 Sea 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, Smart TV 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.

Important Please Note: Rates are based on 2 adults only. Infants are charged £20 each per night,. These extra charges must be selected when making a reservation request or they shall be added on once your booking is confirmed.

  • 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 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
