A room with a view: tiny (but beautiful) one-room holiday chalet in Cornwall goes on sale for over £350k

If you're looking for an idyllic beach retreat you could do worse than The Cabin at Porthkidney beach in St Ives, Cornwall. But you'll need deep pockets for this coastal beauty...

For a property worth over £350k, you might just hope to buy a home with a little more than one room. But let’s not forget – it’s all about location. And that’s how this tiny holiday chalet in St Ives has managed to gain a price tag of £350,000.

The Cabin is situated at Carbis Bay, St Ives, overlooking Porthkidney beach, and is currently for sale through estate agent and auctioneers Miller Countrywide.

The to-die-for views have made this cabin a popular holiday rental, with a week here costing over £900 in the summer, and the cabin is being sold with over £14,000 in future bookings with Boutique Retreats for the holiday season.

But if the lucky buyer plans on making this a more permanent home, they’ll have to be prepared to downsize before moving in.

The cabin has a downstairs living area, kitchen and space for a small dining table and chairs. This leads out on to a deck where you can take in the beautiful views and sea air.

The bedroom is simply a sleeping platform on a mezzanine level, so it’s what you might call cosy.

But best of all is the pretty coastal interior, complete with porthole windows, painted panelling, bookshelves and white curtains billowing in the breeze.

‘The Cabin is one of a kind. It’s nestled on a cliff face at Hawkes Point overlooking the gorgeous Porthkidney beach,’ says Lucy Turner from Miller Countrywide.

‘Inside it’s beautifully snug and there’s a decking area overlooking the beach with views you just won’t find anywhere else,’ says Lucy.

‘It may seem like a lot of money when you compare it to the price of houses elsewhere, but there is simply nothing else like The Cabin.’

Well it’s no surprise to us that this pretty cabin is a popular holiday retreat.

If you’re looking for a bolthole, it doesn’t get more secluded than this, as the cabin is only accessible by a footpath that winds along the cliff top. Bliss…
