The inside may be beautiful, but it’s the outside that will take your breath away. Owners Katherine and Adam have created a small but luxurious vacation destination in Southeast Cornwall, UK, dubbed “Seaglass,” that more than one guest has called “a magical and quiet retreat.”
Perched atop Tregonhawke Cliff, this cozy beach cabin shows that tiny home living isn’t just about efficient use of limited indoor square footage. Seaglass incorporates sloping garden terraces and stunning views to turn the small one-bedroom “beach hut” into a light-filled luxury hideaway you’ll never want to leave.
Just one step outside the house brings you to an expansive deck that overlooks Whitsand Bay.
Bifold glass doors open the living room wall onto that deck, which serves as an outdoor living space, complete with comfy chairs, a swing for two and a wood-burning fire pit.
Back inside, the light-filled living room has plenty of space for an overstuffed couch and table, a dining area and a L-shaped fully equipped kitchen.
The kitchen has warm wood countertops and all the amenities, including ample cabinetry, a microwave and a dishwasher. The home also features a washing machine and dryer.
The bedroom, big enough for a king-size bed and dresser, has a glass wall with bay views that make the room feel twice as large.
The spacious bathroom features a shower, heated towel racks, and glass tile underfoot.
Not impressed by the shower? Are you more a bathtub kind of person? Head out to the lower deck, where you'll find a steaming hot tub. Yes, that's right: Seaglass features not just one but two decks with spectacular bay views.
After a swim in the bay or soak in the hot tub, you can rinse off in the heated outdoor shower, big enough for two, with a privacy wall made of upright logs that is still open to gaze at bay views.
The bistro table in the living room, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, is perfect for both morning coffee and evening meals as the sun sets.
Seaglass is indeed a magical retreat, both intimate and open, and visitors who are lucky enough to spend a few days there dream of returning. As once guest wrote, “It really is a little slice of heaven on hearth.”
