Wow - what a house, what a setting, what a view!!! Looking for the ultimate excuse to gather family and friends for the perfect seaside escape? Then head down to Cormorant - it is simply stunning! Set on a little patch of epic coast in the so-called forgotten corner of Cornwall, this beachside beauty wraps you in complete luxury whilst you soak in those breathtaking far reaching sea views of Whitsand Bay.
Nestled in the pretty hamlet of Portwrinkle, the shortest of strolls from the beach, Cormorant has been cleverly designed to take full advantage of the stunning setting so whether it's morning coffee snuggled up in bed, leisurely breakfast on the balcony or evening sundowners in the living-room, simply relax and take in that view - you can't miss it.
Set over four floors (don't worry there is an internal lift from the ground floor to the second floor; well we did say it was luxury) you can spread out in the stylish open plan living-room, five boutique bedrooms, four contemporary bath/shower rooms, a games-room and, the ultimate icing on the cake, a roof terrace with a hot tub - it's quite impressive.
Head down to the beach if you fancy a morning dip or a good stomp along the coastal path or for a walk of another kind you might put your handicap to the test at the links golf course, it's all right on your doorstep.
From the minute you step inside Cormorant, the quality and attention to detail is evident throughout. The large entrance hall welcomes you and is the perfect spot for storing that all essential seaside holiday gear and if you need more space you can spill into the garage which doubles up as a games-room with table-tennis and table-football to boot, perfect for those with a competitive edge. The impressive staircase ascends but for those less able or those who pack for every eventuality, the lift takes you as far as the second floor, making your ascent a little easier.
All the bedrooms are light and airy with super-comfy beds and the most gorgeous brightly coloured bed spreads. Three can be found on the first floor, one with an en suite bathroom and Juliet balcony and the other two bedrooms share a balcony, ideal to sit out and enjoy the view from sunrise to sunset. The impressive open plan living-room on the second floor is the place to be with a sleek modern kitchen, contemporary dining-table and gorgeous sitting-area with jewelled coloured velvet sofas that take pride of place in front of the bi-folding doors that perfectly frame the view and lead out to another balcony. A further double bedroom is also on this floor which not wanting to miss out also has a Juliet balcony, of course, and there's also another shower-room.
The stairs lead to the top floor with the fifth bedroom that doubles up as a snug, ideal for younger members who want to escape from the adults and here you'll discover the roof terrace, that begs you to lounge in the sunshine, enjoy meals al fresco or a wonderful soak in the hot tub - it doesn't get much better than this - in fact it's FAB-U-LOUS!
From this plum location take the 10 minute jaunt up the hill to indulge in some good old Cornish hospitality at the village pub - The Finnygook - or stock up on some essential provisions at the community shop. The coastline is littered with gorgeous beaches and coves and at low tide you can stroll for miles with the sand between your toes. For some further fun at the seaside or perhaps to try your hand at sea fishing, head to the traditional fishing town of Looe or hop on a boat over to Looe Island, a beautiful nature sanctuary.
The pretty coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand have narrow streets lined with old fishermen's cottages, shops and plenty of places to eat and drink, and neighbouring Mount Edgcumbe Park - with its beautiful Tudor house, formal gardens, forest walks and rural workshops - is a delight.
