With fabulous sea views along the coast and down to the tiny harbour in Gorran Haven, this modern detached house offers all you could desire in a holiday home. Superbly furnished and equipped throughout, the main sitting-room has a wall of glass looking over the garden to the harbour and beach below, an outstanding view shared by the master bedroom and sitting/dining-room. Here, patio doors open onto a spacious balcony where you can breakfast at leisure before strolling down to the lovely sandy beach for a day of paddling, sandcastle building or kayaking. Parc an Gates is equipped with all the latest technology including Smart televisions, Blu-ray DVD players/recorder and BT Infinity, so film nights will be high on the agenda. The double garage offers more family fun, housing a games-room complete with table-tennis and comfy seating, plus games and puzzles for younger children. Securely tucked away behind high wooden gates, there is a big enclosed garden with gently sloping lawns and a sun-trap patio. Sitting right beside the South West Coast Path there are spectacular clifftop walks almost from the door for those who like outstandingly scenic exercise.
Inside Parc an Gates the sitting-rooms lead to a large kitchen/breakfast-room fully equipped with everything you need for family catering. The hugely comfortable bedrooms are spread out over two floors to offer enhanced privacy and flexible accommodation, and with four bedrooms, three bath or shower-rooms and a separate cloakroom there will be no queues in the mornings and everyone will be raring to go, whether to explore the shops and cafes in nearby Mevagissey or the wonderful plants at the Eden Project or Heligan Gardens. The sheltered creeks and beaches of the Roseland peninsula beckon and the sailing town of St Mawes offers award-winning restaurants, pubs, galleries, shops and ferry trips. A little further afield are the surfing beaches, magnificent cliffs and sweeping golden sands of the north coast, well worth the 50 minute drive.
