A new UK holiday home has opened and it’s a big love letter to all things Hygge – the Danish celebration of a cosy, comfortable and content lifestyle.
Think soft lighting, plush furniture, wooden and rustic interiors, roaring log fires, and heaps of blankets and cushions to get as cosy as you can.
The 1 Goonlaze Manor House in St Agnes, Cornwall, offers just that for guests.
Having been left derelict for 20 years, the home has been transformed. Original features such as its fireplace have been restored, while there are plenty of modern amenities to give it that home away from home feel.
For example, the living room has colourful, plush sofas, a large TV (with a DVD player and Netflix so you can watch all of your favourite films), and even some books and games if you’re looking to have a bit of a digital detox.
Meanwhile the bedrooms have been decorated with soft lighting, pastel hued bedding and heaps of cushions and bedding that makes you want to climb in and make the most of leisurely Sunday lie-ins.
Even the bathroom has been designed with relaxation in mind, as the owners took inspiration from a Scandi spa with underfloor heating and a freestanding stone bath, as well as a shower complete with a monsoon head.
Even the outdoor area comes with a cosy feel about it, thanks to the plush outdoor furniture and the paved terrace and barbecue, ideal for those summer evenings where you want to make the most of the fresh air and warmer temperatures.
If al fresco dining doesn’t appeal, the property boasts a spacious kitchen with everything you need to whip up some of your favourite meals.
There’s plenty to see and do nearby if you do want to go exploring – the house is about a five minute walk from nearby shops, restaurants and pubs, or a 20-minute walk from the beach.
The property is owned by Fiona and Richard Llewellyn, who focus on ethical and environmentally friendly projects.
