From the moment we arrived we knew we had booked the right place for a friends 50th Birthday celebration week.
The house itself is huge with four good size (double) bedrooms on the lower level with great views of the garden. The master has an en-suite and another bathroom sits on the lower level. All are clean and nicely decorated. The beds are all very comfortable.
The middle level hosts the fully equipped utility room, toilet, hallway and huge kitchen which is well equipped and has everything you need to cater for up to eight people. On the top level there is the large open lounge with patio doors leading onto a huge terrace with amazing views of the beautiful gardens and the ocean. The lounge is also well equipped with a DVD player, sky and broadband. There is also a large selection of books, DVDs and board games.
The kitchen opens onto another terrace with a table and chairs which also overlooks the gardens and ocean.
The gardens are absolutely stunning and maintained to a very high standard. The pool is on a lower level of the garden which is very safe and surrounded by a fence and gate. The pool is also covered and easy to pull the cover back and forward when needed. This also keeps the pool fairly warm. We managed to swim in here daily in May. Around the pool is an ample supply of sun loungers, chairs and a table, there are also inflatables and body boards for the kids to play with.
The house is in a fantastic location within easy walk to the closest beach. You can also drive or walk to Tesco and a few other shops such as a bakers etc within a few minutes. We would also highly recommend Austells and Eastern Paradise restaurants where the food was fantastic and just a few minutes walk. We definitely would recommend Pie Night at Austells on a Tuesday.
The house is also in easy reach of most of Cornwall's other beaches, towns, The Eden Project and many other sites in and around the Cornish coast.
As stated above the gardens here along with the pool are truly stunning. We would highly recommend this house and will definitely be re-booking for any future special trips to Cornwall.
