Windsworth Old Coach House- Property with sea views south Cornwall coast
Windsworth is a beautiful 70-acre hillside holding on the south Cornish coast. Stunning scenery and sea views are all around you in this spectacular private nature reserve. Spend quality time with family and friends in comfort yet Offgrid!
The Old Coach House accommodates up to 6 people, with optional extra studio flat for 1 or 2. (NB we don’t let the flat by itself, mainly because we want you and yours to have as much peace and privacy as possible.)
Come and stay in a large and comfortable longhouse in a very private, very quiet and unbelievably beautiful place. And what’s so very special about it? It’s offgrid! Enjoy life to the full while making good use of our local resources – you’ll probably be surprised and delighted to find out how easy it is to use our super-sustainable systems.
We’d like to encourage you to explore another way of helping the planet continue to be a good place for our children and grandchildren … so if you come here by public transport, or on foot, on bicycles or on horses, we’ll offer you a discount.
So, what does off-grid mean? There’s no mains electricity, or gas. Yet the house has lighting and heating and loads of hot water. The kitchen has a fridge/freezer, a large range cooker with hob and oven, and a gas hob. It’s amazingly easy to live really comfortably!
Why go off-grid? Two main reasons: first, it’s really good to know it’s easy to live comfortably, yet independently of the big energy companies. And second, this is one of the rare places in the UK that’s free of electrosmog. Many visitors have commented on the wonderful feeling of calm and peace in the house. More information

We’ve now installed our home-built wood-fired 2-3-person hot tub. It’s in the open air, so you can stargaze while steaming gently in the Dead Sea salts that we use as a sanitiser. It’s been under construction for two years, and not knowing when it was going to be completed, I didn’t cost it into this year’s prices. So this year we’re offering it as an optional extra for a supplement: £50 for a short break, £70 for a week.
See & Do
If you’re staying in the coach house, you have the freedom of nearly all of the fields and the woodland, the coastal slope and the seashore. Our land is a rectangle half a mile long by a quarter mile wide, and is bounded by:
North: shelter belt and no-through lane
West: National Trust Bodigga Cliff
East: Monkey Sanctuary
South: the sea!
This house and it’s glorious setting has a magical quality, it takes you a step out of time to offer true relaxation whilst enjoying each other and nature as it was meant to be. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
