It is a cosy one bedroomed 17th century characterful cottage, with sea views and a great place to spend time just relaxing in the living room with its efficient wood burning stove and underfloor heating, or enjoying the views from the little South facing sun-trap terrace beside the cottage.  It has its own convenient private parking area nearby and is close to the wonderful costal paths, leading you to nearby Looe.

This super area of Cornwall has much to offer and to entertain visitors, along with this property being well situated to access the many attractions further afield, like the Eden Project with its tropical domes, Charlestown with its tall ships which has provided the scenic backdrop to many a film and TV location, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and much more.
