From pavement, door into roomy, width-of-cottage living/dining room with woodburner, TV/DVD, sensible laminate flooring (rug), through to inner hall with toy box under the stairs and space to spread; fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, larder fridge) with breakfast bar and door to back porch (washing machine, tumble drier, freezer) with room for coats/boots and drying dogs. Ground-floor shower-room (suite, power-shower) with slate floor. Stairs (stairgates) up to three bedrooms – two double (5' beds), one with en suite shower-room (suite), and a twin with long views over the village to hills and iconic Victorian engine house chimney. A good value family cottage.

The West Country region

The Newquay coast: from the Hayle estuary near St Ives and Gwithian Towans to the Trevose peninsula stretch, almost continuously, superb sand/surf beaches. Newquay – on the railway and with airport (flights from London and a number of regional airports and flights to the Scilly Isles) – is the surfing capital, full of amusements, arcades, young people, pubs and 'life', short on some other things, but pretty harbour and what beaches (Fistral, Tolcarne)! Watergate Bay (just up the coast road from Newquay), home to the Extreme Academy, is the place to go if you're feeling adventurous - try surfing, kitesurfing, waveskiing or stand-up paddleboarding. If you're not an adrenaline junkie, it's also a good spot for the gourmet; Jamie Oliver has opened a restaurant, 'Fifteen', there. St Agnes, a little ex-tin-mining town, has preserved itself remarkably (small proper shops) and attractively. Bedruthan Steps (cliff-high rocks tower out of the beach) is one of the great coast sights (and low-tide walks). Easy drive to The Eden Project (see South Cornwall).
