Dream Getaway: The Beach Hut

Autumn is without doubt my favourite season and I've always thought the idea of being by the sea in these cooler months is terribly romantic. I have no idea why. But, if I had a week off in the next few months my dream getaway would be The Beach Hut in Cornwall.

I came across it a few years ago and from time to time I go back to the website and daydream about pootling down to Cornwall for a long weekend. I guess you can see why! It's remote and tucked away with amazing views, the interior design is so perfectly simple and laid-back: the perfect cosy hideaway.

Did I mention the view? 

Originally constructed in the 1920s it started life as a tea room and has been sympathetically restored and brought back to life. I just love it and it's top of my list of places to go once the house and barn renovations are done with (whenever that might be).

Uh. Dreamy. One day I will make it there. Do you have a dream getaway that you'd like to share? If so please make sure to leave a comment below I'd love to see.

Right, enough dreaming for one day, I'm off to visit a supplier and pick up materials for workshops this weekend but first I'm off on a lunchtime walk with mr pug.

  1. Ah that is dreamy mc-dreamy. Snuggling up in the warm when it is cold outside is so lovely and romantic.

    I don't have a dream getaway for this time of year, but you've inspired me to look more at funny little places like this that I probably wouldn't look twice at.

    I'd probably always think to go abroad at this time of year.

    1. Hi Anna,

      Thanks for your lovely comment, I'm glad I've inspired you! I am planning a little getaway for autumn this year, I love that season!


  2. Hey Louisa, what a great find. We go to Malaysia every year and stay at the Andaman hotel, it is a resort set amidst the most amazing preserved rainforest. Monkeys swing outside our windows and lots of wild life - monitor lizards, Kalugos.... Many beach resorts are now over commercialised in Malaysia but the government has made sure they preserved Langkawi island. Hoping to see you in november and I still haven't got round to posting Pentillen's picture - so sorry! :) x
