Just a couple of miles from sandy Porthtowan beach on the glorious north Cornish coast, Strawberry Fields is the perfect place for fun family holidays and friends' gatherings. All on one level, this long, low, modern house offers plenty of space both inside and out. South-facing and full of light, Strawberry Fields has a fully equipped kitchen/dining-room and a big sitting-room with a wood-burner and patio doors out to the garden. There are four bedrooms (one with en suite shower-room), a family bathroom and an additional shower in the utility-room. Set in a large plot with flat lawns for outdoor games, there is a modern open three-bay barn with table-tennis, a tree house and a paddock where two family ponies and pet sheep often graze. A summer-house faces out over the lawn, catching the evening sun as it slowly sets over the coast, a great place for an early evening G&T. There are coastal and woodland walks from the door, and surfing lessons on offer at the beach. Porthtowan is a Blue Flag beach with lifeguards on duty from Easter to the end of October. Whether it's rock-pooling, sunbathing, sandcastle-building or surfing, this is the ideal spot to do it. Found on a quiet lane just outside the village of Mount Hawke, there are two village shops and an award-winning gastro pub within walking distance. The thriving coastal village of St Agnes is a couple of miles away, with plenty of shops, galleries, pubs and eating places to explore.
Strawberry Fields is a relaxed family home, ideal for large families and groups of friends and a place to enjoy time together. There is a warming wood-burner in the main sitting-room, and three Smart TVs will keep all ages entertained. Outside, there is a huge enclosed garden, perfect for energetic games or just soaking up the country air. Gated off from the quiet access lane, children and pets are free to run around and enjoy the freedom of the great outdoors, with plenty of space for letting off steam (although please keep dogs and children out of the paddock if the ponies and sheep are in residence). There are local walks through wooded valleys that join up to the coastal footpath as it crosses the cliffs just a mile away, offering spectacular views and some great little beachside cafes along the way to make the effort worthwhile! Nearby Porthtowan is renowned for its sandy beach and great surfing waves, and with Tris Surf Shop, a famous little surf shop right by the beach offering surf lessons and board and wetsuit hire, you'll all be surf champs in no time. There is a popular beach cafe selling home-cooked food and a chilled-out surf bar right on the beach, the best place for watching the sun drop down and epic sunsets on balmy summer evenings (great for storm-watching in winter too!). Beaches at Chapel Porth, Portreath, St Agnes and Perranporth are equally enticing, and with this many beaches within seven miles you can live out your seaside holiday dreams to perfection.
