This cosy first floor apartment is just five minutes’ walk from the beach, in the pretty coastal village of Downderry.
Ideally located for touring all of Cornwall, but in particular the stunning Rame Peninsula in the far south east of the county, this cottage will suit a family looking for a seaside base.
Downderry is recommended for its excellent water quality by the Good Beach Guide and is dog-friendly all year round.
A short flight of steps will take you to the veranda of the apartment leading into the open plan living area with kitchen, dining and sitting areas.
This delightful cottage has two comfy bedrooms, a double and a room with adult bunk beds, plus a family bathroom, perfect for a long soak after a day on the beach or walking along the coastal path.
The beach is just a short stroll away and popular for long walks, beach fishing and windsurfing, as well as swimming.
A lovely walk can be had by following the coastal path along the beach and through to Seaton along the promenade, where surfing and sailing are both on offer.
Seaton has a lovely family beach with a cafe and bistro, so why not enjoy lunch here before walking back along the beach to Downderry?
Of an evening, amble down to the village to enjoy a meal at the Blue Plate, firmly established on the South Coast as the place to enjoy quality local food, where the catch of the day direct from Looe, a simple bowl of mussels, seasonal crab or the ever popular fish and chips, are all popular choices from the menu.
The Inn on the Shore, offers an excellent alternative; nestled in the cliffs it offers panoramic views of the beach and the ocean beyond with, great food from an extensive menu from early morning breakfasts, lunchtime snacks to full evening meals.
It is also a great spot to enjoy a traditional Cornish cream tea.
This apartment is in a great location for holidays and short breaks all year round.
