This cottage, built around 500 years ago and heavily modified over the past 100, has now been demolished by new owners to make way for a modern beach house on the site. Although highly picturesque, it was somewhat impractical to live in. Apparently a famous Cornish author once rented the place to write a book, but at the time of writing I know no more. If anyone else finds this message and knows, please add the details as a comment. But I suspect it is passing outside living memory.
Details of the new premises can be found on http://planning.cornwall.gov.uk:8181/rpp/showimage.asp?j=PA11/00839&index=11182731&DB=8&DT=4 and hopefully will appear on the next Google Earth update.
