Tucked into a hillside on the bank of a streaming river sits the Little Gillyflower cottage in Cornwall, United Kingdom. Available as a vacation rental through Unique Home Stays, it is the perfect romantic getaway. The classic stone exterior and shingled roof feel as if you are traveling back in time as you approach.
Inside is just as charming. Soft pastels, cushy furniture, and French-style decor adorn every room. The layout is two-story with a living space and kitchen on the main floor, plus a bedroom and en-suite bathroom upstairs. Take the full tour of this little love nest below!
The main floor is cozy and welcoming with an open layout. The kitchen leads under the stairs into the living room, and the whole space is warmed by a wood burning stove.
The living room is bright and light, accented with soft blues and light natural woods. A soft shag rug defines the space and softens the tile floor. Matching end tables topped with matching lamps create symmetry.
A little table and a pair of chairs are tucked in the corner to create a small dining space. Natural light floods in through the bright window. The padded window seat is the perfect spot to enjoy views of the nearby river and features floral pillows which match the roman shade.
Robin egg blue cabinets in the kitchen are an unexpected and elegant choice. The kitchen makes the most of its small footprint with cabinets built all the way to the ceiling, and a useful peninsula island.
This view of the kitchen shows more of the classic details like the brass faucet and shaker-style cabinet fronts.
The upstairs bedroom is bright yet soothing with vaulted ceilings and soft neutral furniture. Blue accents, fluffy bedding, and floral details finish the look.
A little window brightens the spacious bathroom. Luxurious features like a vessel sink and towel warmer make the space a welcoming retreat.
