The sale of a house that inspired Noël Coward to pen “A Room with a View”
A thatched cottage named The Mariners on Cornwall’s dramatic Lizard Peninsula is said to have inspired Noël Coward to write one of his best-known songs, A Room with a View in 1928.
Coward is said to have “spent some his happiest days staying at The Mariners” and plainly liked the house enough to carve his initials, along with an image of a sailing boat, into a staircase in the house.
A Room with a View, 1928
Now available trough the Truro office of Savills in an unrestored state, The Mariners is set in half an acre and boasts the most spectacular terraced grounds overlooking the coast. Included in the £750,000 price is a Grade II listed three-storey 3,354 square foot thatched cottage, a self-contained apartment and a detached studio cottage.
Here truly is the perfect opportunity to enjoy: “A room with a view and you, with no one to worry us, no one to hurry us.”
