This stylish contemporary apartment has views towards the sea at Swanpool beach on the outskirts of Falmouth. A 10 minute walk down through grassy playing fields and quiet lanes brings you to the beach and nature reserve, where a beach cafe and waterfront bistro provide delicious treats and watersport tuition in paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing, orienteering and windsurfing is available throughout the year. Compact but fully equipped, Bay Retreat has an open plan living-room accessed from a private walled patio, where you can sit and enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. The separate bedroom has an en suite shower-room with double walk-in shower, perfect after days exploring the sandy beaches, Cornish gardens and coastal footpaths near and far.
Bay Retreat is a fully self-contained ground floor annexe adjoining, but set back from, the Owners' home in a quiet cul-de-sac on the edge of Falmouth. Top quality furnishings include a Smart TV with iPlayer, solid oak furniture and a refreshing drench-head shower. There is private parking right outside and level access into the apartment. Access into the bustling maritime town is quick and easy, where there are plenty of eclectic shops, art galleries, restaurants and waterside cafes to explore. Walkers can be on the coastal footpath in minutes, heading towards Falmouth and Pendennis Head in one direction or the Helford River and Lizard peninsula in the other. There are beautiful gardens at Trebah, Glendurgan and Trelissick nearby, with The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project a little further afield. There is covered storage for bikes and surfboards at Bay Retreat, and the surfing beaches of the north coast are just a 20 minute drive away. A well-behaved small dog is welcome.
