1 bed Cottage with Rural Views near sea and galleries
About Pam Betowski
Attracted by the inspiring landscape and the quality of light we moved to Cornwall from London over 25 years ago. My husband, Noel Betowski, is a professional artist and we are both musicians.
Pam Betowski purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Pam Betowski chose Sancreed
We fell in love with the romantic, unspoilt and historic nature of this area that transports one back to a time gone by. Although situated in quiet rural area, it is only a five minute drive to the market town of Penzance and the sea. Our property is one of the important historical houses of West Cornwall.
What makes this Cottage unique
Situated in the centre of rural Penwith with easy access to towns, beaches and coves. The area retains a timely historic atmosphere.

Lovely peaceful cottage -easy drive St Ives Mousehole Zennor, Newlyn Lamorna Minack
Traditional stone house with gorgeous walled garden and beautiful views over the countryside. Sensitively renovated, well equipped and perfectly idyllic for a holiday. Excellent restaurants and coffee shops a short drive away. The owners are artists of a friendly, relaxed and quiet disposition. We spent a lot of time in Barbara Hepworth’s studio and garden, and The Tate in St Ives. Wonderful! Not crowded. We bought a good value 7day Art pass and lunched in the excellent Tate cafe several times. It looks out over the yellow lichen covered slate roofs of the town to the bay. We walked along cliffs and beaches like no others. Clean air and intense greens and blues sparkling on the sea. Massive boulders of granite perched on top of moors and hills. Birdsong, the wind and the sound of the ocean but nothing to interrupt the sense of peace. Little fishing villages with bustling harbours uploading fish and crab. The local people are as relaxed as the tourists! Always friendly and helpful. Car parking was a bit problematic unless we arrived early in the morning, but they were in the process of updating pay machines. We had a week only but it was much too short a stay. Our plan is to go back for much longer. Next time we’ll check the programme and book for the theatre at Minack. We came back nourished but with good books and memories to think about. A special trip.
Excellent apartment, great facilities, great location, lovely hosts.
Thank you for your review! It was a great pleasure to welcome you as guests!
Lovely cottage, wonderfully peaceful, excellent location

Everything we expected from this property, according to the description online.
We had a wonderful week here. Pam and Noel were perfect hosts, and made sure we had all we needed for out stay.
The cottage was cosy, warm, and we loved coming back to it, after being out all day sightseeing . Warming log burner to relax in front of and a very comfy couch, all added to the relaxed atmosphere we wanted from this holiday.
Kitchen well equipped including a washing machine, which we've never had before in a cottage rental.
Everything we needed for our stay, couldn't fault it.
Thank you for your review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay!
