House

The interior was fitted out by a designer who works on both sides of the Atlantic.This could be a comfortable retreat or a good family holiday base. It is so close to so many famous facilities but yet seems remote and hidden. St. Yse Cottage is charming, simply and beautifully fitted out, comfortable, warm and  a wonderful retreat for a  holiday with a glazed sun room, slate flooring and underfloor heating. It has a well equipped kitchen including a dishwasher and three wood burning stoves

History

Built about 100 years ago and on the edge of a long wooded valley, all of which is National Trust land which contains St. Piran’s Well, St. Nectan’s Kieve, his spring, his washing place and a number of other wild and beautiful wooded spots, St. Yse Cottage has been beautifully renovated and fitted out.

Surround Area

Backed by a steep hillside, facing south, and with terraces that go down the valley through bluebell woods to the stream, with gardens, play areas and sun traps. It also has clear views down Rocky Valley to the cliffs and sea near Tintagel, famous for its cliffs, landscape, castle, facilities, romance and beauty. It is 1500 metres, as the crow flies (but further by car), from the very beautiful and sandy beach at Bossinney.

Just past the house is St. Nectan’s Kieve, a famous waterfall, located in Trevillet valley which is well wooded in the upper part, but it opens into the ocean by a narrow embouchure between two stupendous rocky cliffs, through which a chasm would seem to have been rent by some mighty convulsion of nature. The overhanging cliffs, the grey rocks emerging from a partial covering of gorse, heath and ivy, the scattered boulders and the stony bed of the rivulet which rushes into the sea over a precipice, have justly earned for this gorge the appellation of “the rocky valley.” The wild and romantic character of the scene and the solemn solitude, no sound being heard save the rushing of the waters and the cry of a sea gull, cannot easily be conceived. About a mile and a half above the mouth of this valley, in a wooded glen, is a grand waterfall some forty or fifty feet in height. The cascade is, however, twice broken in its descent, which heightens its picturesque appearance. Rushing through a narrow fissure at the top of the cliff the water falls a depth of about twelve feet into a natural bason, where its fall seems for a moment to be interrupted, but springing from this with great fury it falls a depth of about twenty feet into another rocky bason, formed in the process of time by the action of the water. This is locally called a “keeve,” hence the name of the place. From this kieve it emerges through a natural granite archway and falls a depth of about ten feet into the pool below. The picturesque beauty of the spot is enhanced by the overhanging and trailing bushes and plants, which grow in the fissures of the rocks and by judicious planting.

Access

It does, however, have a fairly long drive, which the owner drove up and down for many years.  It has improved greatly over time, however, those unused to driving on un-metalled roads can find it an unusual driving experience and for this reason we consider it essential that you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle to access this property, although low-slung vehicles may not be suitable.
