With stunning sea and harbour views, and only a short walk down to the picturesque fishing village of Coverack, this pretty bungalow is a little gem of a property sparkling from its commanding position on the hillside. Beautifully presented and welcoming, Carnsullan is the ideal retreat for up to four guests with the additional flexibility of the little single bedroom which is ideal for the youngest member of the family. Cosy at any time of year due to the wood-burner in the sitting-room and the Rayburn (lit and available to cook on from October to Easter) and with amazing sea views also enjoyed without leaving the master bedroom, this is a perfect holiday cottage where special memories are made.
There is also an electric four ring hob, microwave and table-top mini-oven in the kitchen so when you want to stay home you can cook up a treat. Why not take your meal into the spacious front garden complete with summer-house, a great spot at any time of year to watch the ever-changing colours and the ships passing by. This unspoilt area of the Lizard peninsula has so much to offer the visitor, however active or inactive you choose to be. You can find great local produce served at a choice of cafes, pubs and restaurants, a super little local shop, the water sports centre where you can hire a paddle board, kayak or SUP and some of the best walks on the South West Coast Path. Discover the nearby sculpture gardens, the delicious ice cream and cakes at Roskillys Farm or relax on the large sandy beach when the tide is out. If you want to venture further afield there are craggy coves and spectacular scenery all around this area so you may just fall a little bit in love with this lovely little bungalow in this truly special part of Cornwall.
