Wonderful countryside views can be enjoyed all year round from the open plan living-room and the private patio garden, which is accessed through the large glass doors and a perfectly peaceful spot to sit at the end of a busy day.

This area offers the visitor spectacular views and rugged scenery on your doorstep and within a short drive you can reach the fabulous north coast including the beach at Portreath which is only five miles away.
