A stylish, contemporary detached home, Holly Tree House has everything you could wish for and the added bonus of a peaceful village location with a great village pub to boot.

Under-floor heating throughout the ground floor will keep the chill off in winter months. Downstairs the fabulous open plan living area exudes quality and offers sociable space for all the family. The dining area is a light and airy triple-aspect room with bi-fold doors giving direct access to the secluded garden and decked seating area. The chefs amongst you will love the beautifully handcrafted units, granite worktops and supply of equipment to cook up a feast in the kitchen and the central dining-table is just the place to gather the troops for a chat about the day's adventures. The sitting-area is beautifully styled with ochre and grey comfy sofas, the ideal place to relax and watch a movie on the Smart TV after a day of invigorating sea air. The contemporary wood-burner is a real feature of the room and perfect to warm toes when the weather is cooler. For younger members of the family there is the added bonus of a snug with additional Smart TV, ideal for avoiding any holiday squabbles about what to watch! The ground floor is finished off with the utility-room and downstairs shower-room with WC and basin, very convenient for a refreshing shower after a beach day. The beautiful staircase leads from the grand hall to the stylish glass balustraded landing and four bedrooms. The bedrooms are beautifully designed with sumptuous beds and luxury bedding. Two of the bedrooms have the added luxury of an en suite shower-room and the opulent family bathroom boasts a fabulous roll-top bath and separate shower.

The secluded back garden backs onto a small fenced off stream and has a lawned area for the children to let off steam and a raised deck for morning coffee or al fresco dining. With the added bonus of a barbecue, outside dining will be a joy here.

The delights of north Cornwall await and beach lovers are in for a real treat!

The traditional seaside town of Bude with its unique sea pool is just a mile away and a great place to stock up on all things Cornish including ice cream and the obligatory cream tea (jam first please!). Venture a little further afield where the villages of Boscastle and Tintagel, home of legendary King Arthur, are waiting to be discovered. Foodie lovers will not be disappointed, the local village pub is ideally situated in the village a short hop, skip and a jump from your door - what more could you want?
