About the property


This outstanding property enjoys direct private access onto Downderry beach accessed via a gate at the end of the large garden.

The beach is perfect for family beach time and exploring the rock pools at low tide. It is also a haven for surfers and water sport lovers alike, with a small slipway giving access for those launching boats a short distance away. Perfect for families, this property boasts plenty of space inside and out. Approached by a private road, the house is set in a quiet, safe and peaceful location in the popular village of Downderry. The heart of the village has a beach side pub, an excellent restaurant, cafe and a small general store, all a short stroll away. Alternatively, head to the delightful fishing villages of Looe and Polperro or further afield to Padstow, Fowey or even St Ives. The area is popular with walkers and boasts lovely cliff-top walks along the dramatic Cornish coastline. There is plenty to do in this hidden corner of Cornwall, with The Eden Project, National Marine Aquarium, National Maritime Museum and numerous National Trust properties all within easy access for daytrips.
