Tucked away next to the Coast Path leading down to Rinsey Cove and mine, is The Studio, a detached cottage with fantastic far-reaching views over Mount's Bay and west Cornwall.
Previously used as an art studio by a renowned artist, it has been beautifully restored and renovated.
Enter through large private gates, cross a sweeping courtyard and head into the big kitchen/dining room with tiled floor and French windows overlooking the terrace and garden.
Three steps lead down to the stylish sitting room which has a wooden floor and large granite inglenook with a wood burning stove.
Also on this level is a pretty twin bedroom (zip-linkable to 6' double) and shower-room.
Open tread pine stairs take you to the first floor and a double bedroom with en suite shower-room and views out to sea and across the countryside.
Outside, the garden is private, peaceful and relaxing with a stone terrace with table and chairs, lawn, shrubs and trees.
Just a few yards from the Coast Path, The Studio has fantastic walking from the front door.
The hamlet of Rinsey comprises mostly granite cottages, a cliff-top engine house standing sentinel to its tin mining history and is a short walk from its own little cove, which is owned by the National Trust.
Nearby Praa Sands is one of Cornwall's finest sandy beaches and the village of Porthleven is a real foodie destination, with interesting shops, cafes and restaurants sitting around its pretty harbour.

The village of Praa Sands sits on the south coast in between Helston and Marazion. Praa Sands is known for its mile-long sandy beach and excellent surfing conditions. There is a bar/restaurant overlooking the beach – the perfect spot for lunch with a view or sunset drinks – a Post Office and general stores, beach cafe with fish & chips, and a beach/surf shop stocked with everything you could need for a great day at the beach. Praa Sands is also home to a Golf and Country Club, from where the most wonderful sea vista can be enjoyed whilst you play. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle, the tower of which dates back to the 16th century. It is said that Pengersick is haunted, and that the ghost of a monk has been seen wandering the grounds! The house at Pengersick is rumoured to be the birthplace of John Carter, the self styled King of Prussia and a tunnel which leads from the house to the beach was apparently once used by smugglers.
