Cottage Has Simple Black And White Exterior, But It Disguises A Magical Secret Inside

January 19th, 2018

Living in a cottage by the sea sounds like a fairytale all on its own, but imagine staying in a historic seaside cottage renovated and designed perfectly just for you. Sounds dreamy, right? Well, you can’t live at The Cable Hut, but you can certainly stay there for a week or two.

Overlooking the ocean in South Wales is a quaint, historic cottage, now endearingly titled The Cable Hut.

The small cottage was originally built as a holding house for telephone lines when they were first being laid across the Atlantic, but now — it’s a vacation rental through Unique Home Stays. Set off a single track road, off the Pembrokeshire coast, staying at The Cable Hut makes you feel like you’re truly away from it all.

The deceiving exterior blends traditional cottage stonework with a modern corrugated iron structure. It’s a nod to the quirky interior that’s hidden inside.

Just 400 meters from the front door is the breathtaking coastline. Activities nearby are cliff diving, kayaking, and wildlife watching — keep an eye out for puffins, dolphins, and seals. The cottage even offers a sheltered courtyard to take in the sights, smells and sounds from the privacy of your own yard.

The cottage is essentially separated into two areas, the kitchen and dining area, and the bedroom which also serves as the living area.

This view provides a look from the kitchen, through the hall into the bedroom and living space.

As you can see, the cottage might be over a century old, but the inside has been completely modernized without losing any of its rustic charm. The bright white walls are a beautiful contrast to the hardwood floors throughout the home.

The cottage might be over a hundred years old, but the kitchen has all the amenities and features of the 21st century.

The gorgeous wood countertops match the hardwood floors and beams throughout the rest of the home. The kitchen features a large farmhouse sink, induction stove, full-size oven, and exposed shelves for storage.

Continue down the hall past the kitchen, and you’ll reach the open plan bedroom which also serves as the seating area.

Located in the iron shed portion of the home, the large bedroom boasts white wood-planked walls, a tall vaulted ceiling, and stunning dark beams that provide a beautiful contrast to the neutral surrounding colors.

The sleeping area features a king-size cast iron bed, a closet for storage, and a large window to allow for natural light.

Opposite the bed is the seaside cottage’s comfy seating area. Relax to sound of waves crashing or open the windows to let in the cool ocean breeze.

Although small, the bathroom in this historic home is quite luxurious. White tiles adorn the walls which surround a small sink and vanity with towel storage, toilet, clawfoot tub, and gorgeous walk-in shower.

And, of course, the sheltered courtyard garden where, in the summer months, you can grab a good book, relax, and take in the sunshine.
