Perfectly situated for exploring the north Cornish coast and set in the peaceful hamlet of Tresean,the ever so charming Old Kiddlywink awaits you. Located on a quiet country lane this charming, detached chocolate box cottage has four bedrooms, lots of outside space and your four-legged friends are most welcome too.

Arrive and stroll through the front garden to the front door, you are invited into the open plan living and dining rooms settled either side of the staircase. The cosiness of a toasty wood-burner entices you into the sitting-room, snuggle up on one of the sofas and catch a movie or curl up with your favourite book. Adjoining this room, you will find a more formal dining-room with another warming wood-burner.

The light and spacious kitchen is designed in a classic farmhouse-style, complete with a tiled floor, double electric range cooker, traditional Belfast sink and that all-important dishwasher. Perfect for cosy intimate suppers there is an antique pine table and comfortable seating in here for four. Also, on the ground floor you will find a twin bedroom and family shower-room.

Upstairs three delightful bedrooms await you. The main bedroom has a king-size bed and is styled beautifully in floral fabrics and matching wallpaper and the two further bedrooms are as exquisite and have thoughtful little touches wherever you look. We mustn't forget the family bathroom, which is also located on this floor. With a traditional roll-top bath, it is perfect for a relaxing soak after a busy day, and you also have a large shower which is perfect for washing salty hair and sandy toes. A door takes you out onto the sun deck where two loungers await you.

Outside there is plenty of space to play, soak up the sun or just sit quietly and plan the days ahead. Steps take you up to a lawn and garden area which has a table and chairs and is perfect for al fresco meals. Leading out from the kitchen there is a sofa seating area which is a perfect little spot for a morning coffee listening to the birdsong.

Your four-legged friends will feel very at home here and will love exploring the fields and coastal paths which are quite literally on your doorstep! The walk from Tresean to Holywell Bay is lovely and only takes ten minutes. Further afield (thirty minutes on foot to be exact) or just over a mile in the car you come to Crantock. Crantock feels like a different Cornwall, a reminder of times lived at a slower pace. The village has narrow lanes and old stone cottages surrounded by beautiful gardens, a small village green and two ancient pubs. The nearby beach is backed by dunes, with the wildlife-rich grasslands of Rushy Green rising up behind them. At the far end of the beach is the headland of Pentire Point West with lovely Polly Joke beach, completely unspoilt and popular in early summer before the beaches become too crowded.

Nearby St Agnes is a friendly and welcoming village with award-winning eateries, several pubs, galleries and independent shops galore. This is a beautiful part of Cornwall to explore, its dramatic coastline dotted with tumbledown mine buildings, relics of Cornwall's tin mining industry (and scene of many a Poldark episode).

For those wishing to explore further afield, the Eden Project, the popular seaside resort of St Ives, the shopping city of Truro and the maritime town of Falmouth all make an easy day excursion and are just a short drive away.

Old Kiddlywink truly is the perfect choice for an unforgettable family holiday in Cornwall.
