Teacup Cottage

Prepare to be charmed… (Old World style)…

Teacup Cottage in Warleggan, Cornwall in the United Kingdom, is an adorable historic (Grade II- listed) moorland bed & breakfast.

It sleeps 2 for a romantic honeymoon-esque getaway, but sorry – no kids (“babes in arms only”) and only well behaved small dogs are permitted. (That would rule out my crazy canine – even though he only weighs 16 pounds!)

Situated in southwestern England, Teacup Cottage is an unhosted (or self-serve bed & breakfast) but they do include a hand-delivered breakfast “hamper” full of goodies for their guests.

The cottage features thick stone walls painted white, wood floors and ceilings – also painted white. So this squat, very old structure appears bright, airy and light-filled inside.

The house’s namesake….

Well I suppose those are tea pots, rather than teacups, but close enough.

I could not find out how old the cottage is, but there are other buildings in the village that date back to the 15th century.
