Light and contemporary, and with the most mesmerising sea views from the living-room and outside deck, the Owner has created a sparkling gem from this 1970s upside-down property. Ceiling to floor glass in both the open plan living-room and the twin bedroom really make the most of this wonderful seascape, whilst the lower level double bedroom offers a tranquil space with a door to outside (take care on the steps and uneven surface). With inspiration from its 70s heritage the cottage maintains a rustic feel whilst being kitted-out with modern essentials; parking and easy access to the coastal path below (whether walking into the village or further afield) makes Mears Cottage the ideal base for exploring this rugged, beautiful part of Cornwall.
Located in the heart of the pretty village of Coverack, a short walk down the path leads you to the friendly pub and if you are feeling competitive there is a weekly quiz night to enter. Further along the bay you will find the cafe, restaurant and hotel all offering a mouth-watering selection of local produce depending on what you fancy, breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner can all be found right on your doorstep as well as the small local shop for those essential items. For those seeking more activity you can join the coast path towards Porthallow and on to the Helford or in the other direction towards the Lizard, stopping at the sculpture gardens just off Chynhalls Point on the way or if you prefer to get closer to the water why not pop down to the windsurfing school for a lesson or two!
