    The sink tap dripped which in a small space grated somewhat , also a number of light bulbs were out and were not easy to change . So I guess a general comment is that done one needs to check the properties maintenance . Also as a general point for all properties, my first impression is heavily influenced by whether the owner has taken the trouble to provide a small bottle of milk , a good brew after the final stages of a long drive being essential in setting my mood ...

The property

Marpen is a detached, single-storey chalet perched high above the cliff road in Freathy on Whitsand Bay, with superb panoramic views out to sea and along the coast.

It faces south-west for all-day sun and spectacular sunsets.

A fantastic romantic place for couples or small family.

It has been smartly refurbished and neatly laid-out to make the most of the 180 degree seascape; binoculars provided.

The open-plan living-dining room and kitchen area is dominated by that amazing view.

Step through the big glazed bi-folding doors on to the terrace and enjoy the full impact of the vista.

There is garden furniture and a BBQ for those al fresco meals.

Two neat bedrooms – a king-size double and a twin that zip-links to a king-size bed, plus a truckle bed.

Compact family bathroom.

Enclosed garden with seaward-facing paved terrace (gated), outdoor shower and small lawned areas front and back.

Utility shed with storage for surfboards etc.

Freathy's playing field and tennis court, 1 minute walk.

The glorious, huge sandy beach, about 350 yards, reached by a steep coast path.

A sensational spot any time of year.

About the location

WHITSAND BAY

Set in a bowl of hills at the head of a tidal creek that leads to the Hamoaze, opposite the great naval city of Plymouth, Millbrook is located on the Rame Peninsula, "Cornwall's Forgotten Corner". Bounded by the Lynher and Tamar rivers, the Hamoaze and the sea, the area is deeply rural and designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a good range of shops and pubs, while close by are the pretty coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, from which a ferry will take you to Plymouth. Along the southern edges of the peninsula are miles of beautiful walks with glorious views of Rame Head. Just a mile south of Millbrook lies Whitsand Bay with its miles of uncrowded sandy RNLI patrolled beach and dramatic cliffs. A superb base for discovering the wild side of Cornwall.
