The property has everything you could want in a holiday home. The outside space is amazing with wonderful views and plenty of space to spread out in. There is a lovely large terrace with table and chairs, bean bags and BBQ. Further up the garden, away from it all, there is even a firepit sunk into the ground, where you can sit of an evening, watching the surf, star gazing and listening to the sounds of the sea. In the summer, there is a full size outdoor table tennis table. In the games room, there is air hockey, a children’s ping pong table, and a darts board. There are wet suits, body boards, beach kit for your use.
The house is of an upside down arrangement. The views are straight to the beach and sea with the majestic Penkenna cliff behind. Upstairs is open plan.

There are 3 sofas to relax on and also giant bean bags, loved by both children and adults, for pure comfort while reading in front of the fire. There is no TV at the property but there is Wifi should you wish to bring laptops.
The open plan arrangement of the dining room kitchen and living area allows for the cook of the party to entertain whilst the rest of the guests relax and enjoy the views! There is a dining table and breakfast bar to eat at, plus the kitchen has all mod cons including dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave and gas cooker.
It really is a lovely, comfortable, family holiday home, perfect for two families or groups of friends wanting to experience Cornwall’s rugged coast and to escape from it all. The facilities are there with the intention of pure enjoyment and it provides a lovely opportunity to relax, sit back and make the most of all the best Cornwall has to offer.
The beach is only a short walk away with wonderful rock pools ripe for exploring and when the tide is right it is great for body boarding or surfing. Locally there are walks in woods and fields as well as the North Cornwall coast path all on the doorstep.
The drive is about 4.5 hours from London.
