As cute as its name, Bumblebee Cottage is an utterly delightful little bolthole for a family or couple looking to enjoy the delights of Cornwall's charming south east coastline. Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life with a private terrace and fabulous garden, you are the shortest of drives to the traditional fishing town of Looe and the seaside villages of Seaton and Downderry.

Tucked away down a country lane, which in late spring puts on the most stunning of displays, this is the place to kick back and relax. Step inside and this small but oh so perfectly formed semi-detached cottage, greets you with a warm welcome. Rustic shelving, a chunky farmhouse style dining-table and cosy sofa await you in the open plan living-room and children will adore the sweetest of twin bedrooms on the ground floor. The luxurious family bathroom is a real treat with its gorgeous roll-top bath, so it will be bubble baths for the younger members and bubbles of a different kind for the adults - there's even little shelves either side to place your glass! The spacious double bedroom takes up the whole of the first floor complete with its own en suite shower-room, ideal when someone is enjoying a long lazy soak in the family bathroom.

Your private terrace invites you to enjoy meals al fresco style, cooked up on the barbecue and should it turn a little chilly the outdoor log-burner will keep you cosy. The garden is a dream, a large area of lawn, small orchard, play area and a garden bench perfectly positioned to enjoy the far reaching views across the open countryside, highly recommended for viewings at the end of the day accompanied with your favourite tipple. The main garden is shared with the sister cottage Barn Owl Cottage (5015), but there's plenty of room for all you to find your own space or even better make new friends or why not bring some friends with you and rent both cottages together.

South east Cornwall has a very different beauty to the rest of Cornwall, a softer landscape with sheltered bays and rolling countryside, you couldn't have picked a better place for a holiday. The working fishing town of Looe is packed full of traditional seaside charm, where you can try your luck at crab, mackerel or even deep-sea shark fishing and if you don't get a bite, there's plenty of fish and chip shops serving up their delights so you won't go hungry.

Head off along the coastal footpath to the charming fishing village of Polperro, you will feel as if you have stepped back in time with the higgledy-piggledy cottages that line the narrow streets and for more historic houses and glorious gardens Antony (National Trust) and Mount Edgcumbe should be on your list.

You can visit the primates being cared for at the Wild Future Monkey Sanctuary and adrenalin junkies will get their thrills at Adrenalin Quarry where you can have fun in the aquapark, slide down the zip wire, ride the go-karts or be a big kid on the UK's largest swing.
