We have had an amazing family break in Carn Du. The décor of the house is beautiful and all our family have found it a place of inspiration both because of the wonderful living space and the simply stunning sea views. Even on days when the weather has been more inclement the house provides ample opportunity to relax and find...

About the neighborhood
Carn Du house and Carn Du cottage are next to one another at the top of Raginnis Hill in south west Cornwall. A quarter of a mile down a steep road to the left, as you look out to sea, is a natural sandy harbour in the middle of Mousehole. Along the coast road beyond Mousehole are Newlyn and Penzance.

From Carn Du the far reaching views extend beyond Penzance to St Michael's Mount, where in 1047, Edward the Confessor established a chapel which stands on an island in Mount's Bay. At low tide a cobbled stone causeway unfolds as the sea recedes
and leads you across to the island. Should the tide come in, a small ferryboat will return you to the mainland.

The coastline is gentle here, but becomes more rugged as you move west towards Lamorna Cove and Land's End. The coastal pat...
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Newquay, one hour: 45.4 mi
Railway: Penzance, twelve minutes: 4.0 mi
By Rail: The London Paddington to Penzance mainline ends overlooking Mount's Bay to the sound of the gulls, just yards from the sea.Take a taxi from here to the house, (12 minutes). Alternatively, Europcar is just opposite the station if you prefer to hire a car. Returning, the sleeper service departs Penzance late, pulling in at Paddington station around 5.30 am. Disembarkation can be as late as 8.00 am.

A handy tip: to cut down your travelling time by train, get out at Exeter St David's, and jump into your pre-arranged taxi (Loraine can order one for you, £140).

By Road: The drive to Carn Du takes 4.5 hours from London. Take the M4 to Bristol, then the M5 to Exeter,then A30 to Penzance. From Penzance take the main road around the bay to Newlyn. Upon crossing the bridge take the...
