A Cornish Holiday Home That is a Nod to the Modern Scandinavian Summerhouse

What do you look for when holidaying in the UK? Is it a typical beach holiday with sandcastles on the beach and icecream cones? Or is it rugged scenery with opportunities for stretching the legs and taking in the views? Or maybe it’s pretty little villages to explore, local cuisine to try, and somewhere luxurious to lay your head? Look no further. Ukiyo is a holiday home offering all of the above on the untamed east coast of Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula. As well as an interior that’s a nod to the modern Scandinavian summerhouse. Just in case you are missing your foreign holidays this year.

Ukiyo derives its name from Japanese culture (see it’s even covering long-haul travel too) and translates to ‘the floating world’. A blissful state of detachment from the bother of everyday life. And that’s exactly what you’ll get gazing out of the expansive picture windows across the shimmering sea.

The interior is a mixture of contemporary with poured concrete and silvering Siberian larch cladding, and modern-rustic furniture that is straight out of an interiors magazine. All in contrast to the wild coastal views on show through the windows that wrap around the front of the house. Sculptural pieces of furniture sit on locally made jute rugs, and linen cushions line deep window sills.

And if you can tear yourself away from the minimal luxury inside, you can relax outside in the cedar spa hot tub or enjoy a glass of red sitting round the firepit.
