Perfectly placed near to the Cornwall border with Devon, this is a great location from which to explore both counties.

Beach lovers will also be spoilt for choice with an array of golden sandy beaches and unspoilt coves in the area. Other attractions and places of interest accessible from here include Clovelly, Hartland, Bodmin Moor, the Eden Project, Newquay Zoo, RHS Rosemoor Gardens, and numerous National Trust properties.

Stepping in to the property the first room is a lovely romantic studio style bedroom/lounge with double bed, vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, TV, DVD and a cosy wood burner. A step down then takes you into a characterful hallway with original stone floor, and accessed via this there is a lovely contemporary country style bathroom with hand-held shower over roll-top bath, separate shower and WC. Towards the rear of the property, there is a beautifully light and airy kitchen/diner and this is well-equipped with a gas oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment and washing machine.

Heading outside there is a delightful enclosed gravelled patio with seating to the front, and an enclosed gravelled patio with garden furniture, charcoal BBQ and unfenced pond to the rear. Further to this there is access to a large shared garden with an unfenced pond and a two acre field, perfect for exercising four legged friends. Ample private off-road parking is provided.
