Fallen Angel ~ offering you the best romantic getaways UK
Owners Jane and Mark left their London jobs in 2015 and came to Cornwall to create a business premised on delivering the highest quality visitor experiences, of a caliber that is rarely found in the UK. Fallen Angel is the second of their projects, following the launch of Petite Weddings, a small wedding specialist service in 2015.
In creating Fallen Angel, derelict buildings have been demolished, tons or rubble and earth removed from the site by hand, granite has been re-cycled to create cladding and dry-stone walls in the landscaped garden, a bespoke wooden frame has been constructed, insulated and clad in EPMD rubber, under-floor heating installed below ghost-patterned porcelain tiles imported from Spain, a unique kitchen designed and built by Ben Williams from sandblasted oak tinged with silver, floor to ceiling window have been carried by hand on to site and installed upstairs and down, a unique stair-tunnel has been built to take you on a sublime journey from living space to sleeping space. Fallen Angel rests in a beautiful sub-tropical garden, entered through the reclaimed door that previously was one of two doors at the entrance of a Morrocan village. This has been created to provide all the privacy and tranquility you can handle. Quality and eco-credentials have been at the forefront of every decision, and just as in Grand Designs, yes, the budget was completely blown!
The story behind this luxury stay for two UK
In April 2015 we viewed a hidden garden and derelict house overlooking the harbour of Mousehole, even most locals didn't know it was there. We fell in love and in a moment of our hearts ruling our heads, decided to buy it. We gave our architects, Studio West, a simple remit: "design the most romantic home for two’
It is the only rubber house in the entire South West. The design philosophy was to create a stealth house to disappear into the sub-tropical garden. It is the perfect place for 2 lovers to close the Moroccan gate behind them, and forget the outside world.
Every element of the house is bespoke, calling on expertise from throughout the UK to create this most special place. From master craftsmen to roof window specialists, artists to lighting experts.
Aside from what you would expect from any other high quality holiday stay such as Blu-ray, Sky, washer/drier etc, you can enjoy a bath in the oversized brushed steel bath overlooking the gardens, the shower for two with equally stunning views, underfloor heating and a log burner, original art designed for the spaces inside and out. No expense has been spared, from Siemen appliances, to the power blinds you can operate from your luxury bed. Every element of Fallen Angel has been designed to create the most beautiful, romantic retreat.
The details that set this dream honeymoon venue aside from the rest
The interior design has been inspired and sourced from across the world. Handmade encaustic tiles from Spain, antiquities from the ancient city of Jodhpur and from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains and ethically sources hand carved teak from Malaysia. The design philosophy continues outside from the moment you approach Fallen Angel and open the Moroccan village gate and enter the sub-tropical gardens.
Internally, the upper deck is devoted to living – relax in the spacious living area where sumptuous sofas adorn the living area beside the egg shaped wood burner sat atop a hearth of mismatched encaustic tiles, and flanked by original commissioned art work by Dan Pyne. This room offers views through the floor to ceiling glazed windows to the decked-balcony and beyond to the sea – you can even open this right up during the summer to bring outside indoors. Cook and eat in the fully equipped high-spec kitchen, or have a private chef come and do this for you. And if it’s raining and not going to stop, kick-back and watch your favourite films or just catch up on some TV in the purpose-designed snug.
Head down the stunning stair tunnel to your floating bed, topped with a feather bed topper and dressed in the finest Egyptian cotton, where you’ll also find a roll top stainless steel bath for two installed in the floor to ceiling bedroom window overlooking the lower garden, the walk in shower with a view and the toilet.
The garden has been landscaped and planted to create privacy and tranquility. We drew inspiration from Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens and were lucky enough to have the owner of Tremenheere advise us on the project. The gardens combine traditional dry-stone walls, sub-tropical plants that thrive in the mild climate in the far west of Cornwall and an original commissioned sculpture by Ken Gill. Many a day can be lost here!
Fallen Angel also benefits from superfast broadband, Sky TV, Blu Ray DVD player, Sonos sound system throughout the house, fully equipped kitchen, under-floor heating, a utility room with washer/dryer, hair dryer and a good supply of wood for the log burner.
Hidden down narrow backstreets of Mousehole. No cars, no tourists. Just you two in this little slice of paradise.
"Fallen Angel is by far one of the best property's I have had the pleasure of calling home for a few days during a recent get away. Tucked away in a secluded setting high upon the hillside in Mousehole the "Stealth House" as we came to call it disappears perfectly into its surroundings. From the first moment we walked through the door the quality was evident throughout. The attention to detail given both before and during the construction process is world class. Little touches like the iPad, Sonos sound system and BBQ make this a home from home for any occasion. The living accommodation is spacious with a small snug to relax and watch TV if required. We just found ourselves looking at the view and relaxing around the wood burner. The bath and separate shower in the bedroom are again a luxurious feature and continue to add class and quality at every possible area.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat - beautiful house, beautiful setting and built and created by beautiful people! "
