  • “When we arrived we had to Hoover and dust the whole cottage, there was also a strong smell of damp in the twin room which made it difficult to get a good nites sleep, The parking was tight for two small cars but adequate.”

    On the plus side the cottage was ideally situated with stunning sea/beach views and a lovely garden, staying local was key to a great stay, 30 minutes in either direction there was plenty to see and do, visit Rame, Cremyll, Whitsand, Portwrinkle, Edgcumbe, Seaton and Freathy. You can also get a passenger ferry from Cremyll to Plymouth.

The property

Just above the beach at Downderry, Watchtower nestles peacefully in a row of charming 19th century coastguard cottages.

Seaward-facing, it boasts uninterrupted, panoramic sea views of Rame Head and Eddystone lighthouse from the garden and dining area.

Great care has been taken by the owners to retain the original character of the cottage, making it truly homely and welcoming.

Taking advantage of the wonderful outlook, the lounge/dining area has double–aspect windows and offers a lovely, sunny spot for watching the world go by.

The pale blue country-style kitchen is well-equipped, and the four comfortable bedrooms offer restful sanctuaries - each complete with a selection of books.

Outside, the lawned garden is perfect for family gatherings, right above the sea with a fantastic azure vista.

Enjoy your morning coffee al fresco and relax to the sound of waves lapping the shore.

Everything you could need for your holiday is close by at Watchtower; just a short walk to the village centre will bring you to a small grocery store, beach shop, the excellent Blue Plate Restaurant and traditional Inn on the Shore, which offers a range of locally-brewed ales.

When you are ready to explore, this beautiful corner of the county has much to see and do.

Spend lazy days on the beach, hire a kayak or boat and see the coast from a new perspective, walk the coastal footpath or discover the Lanhydrock Estate, Looe Monkey Sanctuary, or the fantastic Adrenalin Quarry with its 490m-long zip wire and giant A-frame cliff top swing!

About the location

DOWNDERRY

Looe 6 miles; Liskeard 10 miles; Polperro 11 miles; Plymouth 18 miles.

Downderry is a small quiet coastal village situated in south east Cornwall. Downderry has a sheltered beach, Post Office and shop, deli, and a cliff top pub and an excellent restaurant, serving quality local food. At low tide it is possible to walk along the beach from Downderry to Seaton, where you will find a family friendly south facing beach and the nearby Seaton Valley Countryside Park and Nature reserve is home to wildlife, including otters and kingfishers and also offers great cycling and walking opportunities. The picturesque working harbours at Looe and Polperro are within an easy driving distance away, and the wonderful stretches of the South West Coast Path in this part of Cornwall take you to rocky coves, dramatic headlands and tales of shipwrecks and smugglers. Further afield is Plymouth, where you will find plenty to see and do, including a marine aquarium, a theatre, large shopping centres and the historic Barbican waterside area.
