Standing peacefully overlooking the beautiful bay, Carndu is a delightful 17th Century thatched cottage set at the end of a small terrace in the centre of the popular fishing village of Coverack. With spectacular sea views from all the principal rooms as well as from the pretty, enclosed front garden, the cottage is said to have once been a smugglers’ haunt and still retains enormous charm and character. The theme of the sea is nowadays echoed by a fresh blue and white colour scheme inside, from the comfortably furnished sitting-room with its welcoming open fire to the two spacious bedrooms upstairs, while in the large farmhouse kitchen/diner a cosy window seat is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the view.
Throughout Carndu the Owner’s collection of local paintings and ceramics add the finishing touches to this tastefully furnished home comfortably sitting alongside the modern equipment such as the Bluetooth digital radio. Just across the road from the cottage, steps lead down to the beach (sandy at low tide), great for relaxing in the sun, dipping your toes in the shallow water and for those looking to be more active, the perfect destination to windsurf. The picturesque harbour, village pub and shop are but a short stroll away with every Wednesday being quiz night in the local - you could walk away with first prize! Renowned for its rocky coves and magnificent coastline, the beautiful and unspoilt area also offers exhilarating walks along the nearby coastal footpaths, with breathtaking views of the sea and surrounding scenery.
