About the property

A beautiful, self-contained detached studio cottage 5 mins from the coastal path

The Artist's Studio is a small, self catering detached property within the grounds of the owners' family home, providing open-plan accommodation.

Enjoy a glass of wine in your own, flower-filled garden or relax in the comfortably furnished converted artist studio.

The studio with its own private entrance and garden, has been sympathetically refurbished to a high standard, retaining the original beams and a double height ceiling. It is located in a rural hamlet within easy walking distance to Praa Sands, approximately a mile of glorious sandy beach and great for surfing. The stunning coastal path can be accessed from the hamlet from where you can walk to Porthleven, a picturesque fishing harbour, or Prussia Cove, a series of coves and beaches named after an infamous smuggler and onwards to the majestic St Michael’s Mount.

Trevurvas is ideally located for exploring south west Cornwall being located equidistant between the stunning Lizard peninsular and the rugged Lands End; within 15 minutes of Penzance, Helston, St Ives and Hayle. Slightly further afield are the larger towns of Truro and Falmouth, or visit the Scilly Isles accessed from Penzance by ferry or Lands End Airport by plane.


Ground Floor: Open plan living area with galley style kitchen. TV with freeview channels, DVD player and CD player. Well equipped kitchen with cooker, electric hob, fridge, toaster and kettle. En suite shower room with white suite comprising electric shower, hand basin, towel rain and WC. A large stylish day bed / sofa pulls out to form a comfortable king size bed for sleeping. Large old pine wardrobe and chest of drawers provide ample storage space.

Patio doors lead to your own garden area, with area of lawn, flower filled beds and a small patio area with table and two chairs; the garden area is secure for those travelling with dogs.

The Artists Studio is a really comfortable and homely property perfect for a romantic getaway or a great base for walkers, surfers or those wanting to explore West Cornwall.

Facilities and Services

Inclusive electricity. The studio is fully cleaned before your arrival and all bed linen, towels (including beach towels) and the final laundry are included in the price.

Why Jonathan Dougall chose Cornwall

For the first five years we let friends and family stay in the Artist's Studio, their reaction was so positive they gave us the confidence to let it professionally from 2013.

Peace and Tranquility in Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

Having spent a relaxing week at the Artist's Studio we would certainly recommend it. Excellent location for Praa Sands and the coastal path to Porthleven.

All the extras in the Artist's Studio were appreciated, particularly the wine, fresh flowers and the cream tea.

The excellent weather enabled us to use the BBQ in the private garden.

Certainly a holiday we would consider again in the future

A stay to remember

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here this August and had a lovely week. The studio was pretty and clean and we were given a welcome basket on arrival with scones and a bottle of red. The private garden was gorgeous and we often and had our breakfast out there. There was also a dear, friendly Robin who'd come to visit. The gorgeous beach is just 10 mins walk away via a scenic route over the top. Really quiet and perfect for a romantic trip away. Local town , pubs and restaurants just a short drive away also.

Cosy little getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were really lucky with the glorious weather and the studio was really nice with lots of lovely touches to make our stay memorable. Location was great with a 10 minute walk to the beach which was beautiful. Would highly recommend this studio as the owners were really friendly and helpful.

If you like the peace and quiet and a nice break, this is the place for you :-)

A gem in secluded setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent a superb week in the Artist's Studio. It was made clear when we booked that the property is small. However for a couple who spend all day whilst on holiday out and about, this was ideal. The property is in good condition, well maintained and fully equipped with essentials and some luxuries. We met both of the couple who run the place and they are charming and most obliging, very keen to ensure that their guests are happy and cared for. The location is superb although the narrow (even by Cornish standards) lane to the cottage is tricky. A short walk in morning for newspaper was invigorating. The village shop stocks essentials and choice of supermarkets within 10 mins drive. There are simply too many attractions in this fantastic area. One visit is not enough!

There are so many attractions within easy driving distance of Trevurvas including: Minack Theatre, a stunning out-door theatre built into the cliffs at Porthcurno. St Michaels Mount. This is truly unique; a tiny, rocky island filled with astonishing history and natural beauty, yet still a living, working community of people. Activities include: Walking. The coastal path runs the whole of the Cornish coast, so you are never far from a footpath. Fishing. You can arrange fishing trips from many of the harbours in the area, the closest being Porthleven
