A mere hop, skip and a jump to the beach you'll find this gem of cottage waiting to welcome you. Nestled in the heart of Kingsand, an utterly charming village set right on the coast with pretty cottages huddled along a maze of narrow streets and alleyways, along with shops and galleries and a choice of places to eat and drink right on your doorstep it's a jackpot location for a great Cornish getaway for couples, families and your loyal pup too!
From the minute you step inside, you'll find yourself immediately immersed in the laid-back loveliness of this charming cottage. Surprisingly spacious the open plan living-room is furnished with style and comfort in mind, in tones and materials that reflect the coastal setting. The cottage kitchen with its homely wooden surfaces and fabulous larder cupboard is perfect for creating your holiday feasts all served up on the dining-table, but with so many places to eat and drink within walking distance and the local village shop only a few doors up the street selling yummy fresh pastries, I don't think there will be much cooking to be done!
The sitting-area beckons you to chill out and relax at the end of a great day in the beautiful corner of Cornwall, cosied up in front of the toasty wood-burner, making this a perfect retreat all year round.
Upstairs along with the shower-room there are two lovely bedrooms with vaulted ceilings creating a great sense of space. The main bedroom feels terribly romantic with its exposed beams and gorgeous bedstead and the second bedroom has a 'zip and link' bed which can be made up as twin beds or a king-size if you want to snuggle up together.
You are sure to immerse yourself in everything this lovely village has to offer but it's not just the village that is delightful, the whole area has so many treasures to discover, and you'll understand why it has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The area is a walker's paradise with coastal walks that offer stunning vista around every corner and lead you to quiet beaches and coves along Whitsand Bay and beyond. The Mount Edgcumbe Country Park is on the doorstep, surrounded by the sea with 800 acres of parkland, woodlands and glorious gardens and the best way to explore the park is on a Segway! If you fancy some fun on the water the park offers paddle boarding, kayaking, coasteering and wild swimming safaris and if you want to learn to ride the waves head to the surf school at Whitsand Bay.
If you fancy some historic grandeur why not visit the historic house and gardens at Antony (National Trust), and Port Eliot are a must for any budding Monty Dons, or for a taste of city life, hop on the ferry across the Sound to the Maritime City of Plymouth.
