This fabulous property has been decorated in a contemporary yet sympathetic country style and is perfectly placed for exploring the counties of Cornwall and Devon, and both the north and south coasts.

If you can't decide between coast and country, this desirable property covers both. Set in a quiet village with picturesque country lanes, it's within easy access of main road links to the wider region and coastline. Sleeping ten guests across five bedrooms, the bright and airy ambience is ideal for a group of friends or families who love stylish interiors that connect seamlessly through to the outdoors. Stay here and you'll find yourself doing a lot of gazing at the beautiful tiered garden and further afield.

Spacious open-plan living welcomes guests to this beautifully furnished home with contemporary rustic country style. Enjoy calming hues and earthy tones with traditional slate flooring in the lounge, kitchen and dining area; exposed brickwork walls are softened by the addition of squishy sofas, buttoned leather armchairs, cosy throws and crisp linens. Floor-to-ceiling doors lead the eye from the dining room table towards the inviting garden. On cooler evenings, cosy up by the lounge wood burner for family film nights and see what tempts you all on the Smart TV with Sky TV entertainment. If you're feeling peckish, rustle up light snacks or family feasts in the well-equipped kitchen. There's also a convenient utility room, a separate WC and a smaller snug/lounge on the ground floor where you can unwind on the sofa with a good book by the second wood burner. Two staircases lead to the upstairs bedrooms which include a twin bedroom, two king-size bedrooms (one en-suite), a super king-size bedroom (en-suite), a family bathroom, and a wetroom. There's also a separate garden cottage with a step up to the pretty entrance where you'll find a king-size bedroom en-suite and kitchenette. Steps in the lawned garden lead to the garden patio for al fresco dining and a decked BBQ area with picnic benches while off-road parking is available for four cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Very remote location but that is the attraction together with the rear garden views. Large greenhouse effect living area makes for great open-plan outlook but too hot in summer and no air conditioning to help. Lovely quirky cottage with separate self contained out house. Very enjoyable stay and would recommend to other families.

A large spacious very well equipped house with open plan design. Large decking area and garden, secure enough for our dog & great views of the countryside. Rural location reached by very narrow lanes but close to A30 and A338 with plenty of great places and walks within 45 to 60 mins drive. Would definitely recommend this property.
