Quietly tucked away in the pretty village of Ladock, The Coach House is a traditionally styled English country home. Open the front door and revel in the comfort and warmth this lovely house offers; with its classic country-style interiors as well as spacious rooms it is the perfect property for family gatherings, celebrations, and out-of-season escapes.
The well-equipped kitchen has everything you need for preparing large family meals to enjoy in the elegant dining-room and there is plenty of space in the sitting-room for everyone to sit around the cosy fireplace to socialise.
With one bedroom on the ground floor and three bedrooms upstairs, including a generously sized master bedroom with its own dressing-room and bathroom, the house comfortably accommodates eight.
There is a large private terrace with garden furniture and a barbecue for those summer meals outside. You are also welcome to use an area of garden below the drive which is surrounded by mature trees and is a spectacle of colour in the spring when the azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias are in full bloom. The owner who lives in the former Rectory next door may occasionally bring their horses through this part of the garden.
The village community shop is a 150 yard walk from the house for day to day provisions and there is also a local pub The Falmouth Arms for an early evening drink before supper.
Ideally positioned for exploring both coasts of Cornwall, you can be on the north coast in 25 minutes to explore one of the many glorious beaches such as Mawgan Porth or Lusty Glaze where the more adventurous can have a go at surfing, jet-skiing or even walking the tightrope, and those wanting to relax can enjoy a drink or meal at the beach bar and restaurant.
Take a walk across the coastal path to Watergate Bay, home of the Extreme Academy and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant. If you are after some traditional family attractions the zoo, Waterworld and the boating lake in Newquay fit the bill!
The Roseland peninsula on the south coast is also easily reached within 25 minutes with its glorious sandy beaches and pretty seaside villages. Take a boat trip from St Mawes to Falmouth, or hire a kayak and explore the hidden creeks of the Fal estuary.
The well-known Hidden Hut cafe at Porthcurnick Beach serves delicious outdoor cooked food and has regular ticketed feast nights during the year. Nearby is the Driftwood Hotel with its Michelin star restaurant, and the Nare Hotel at Carne and the Hotel Tresanton in St Mawes both have excellent waterside restaurants for that special night out.
The Lost Gardens of Heligan are a short drive away, found just outside the pretty fishing village of Mevagissey, with other lovely gardens close by to explore at Caerhays and Trewithen.
