Upper Tregudda is the top floor of a 4 bed apartment, benefiting from a south, sea-facing balcony with spectacular panoramic sea views from all of the windows.
The large bright living room leads to a fully equipped kitchen and separate dining room. A balcony wraps around the front of the apartment with sun loungers and garden furniture from which it is possible to look out onto Port Isaac bay and headlands over a glass of breakfast orange juice. Access from the living room, dining room and master bedroom, via French doors, makes this balcony a prominent extension of the building, - great on a summers evening for watching the sun setting over the sea. especially in the summer.
The bedrooms and bathrooms (one en-suite) branch off a carpeted corridor leading from these communal areas and all provide a relaxing and private space away from the activity of the main living areas. Parking is available immediately outside the property and a set of winding steps lead up to the main entrance. The Cornish Coastal Path leads up the back of the property and brings you out on the top of the hill giving access to the dramatic headlands and makes for a perfect evening stroll. Alternatively the pub with a garden and bustling atmosphere is only at the bottom of the hill.
The most prominent advantage of Venus cottage is its marvellous sea views via a balcony and full-length French doors, from the open plan living/kitchen/dining area. The balcony overlooks the pub garden - great on a summers evening for watching the world go by and the sun setting over the sea. The original beams add a touch of heritage to the cottage. The stairs lead to the bedrooms and bathroom. Through the double bedroom a patio door leads to the sheltered courtyard garden with a slate terrace, ideal for sheltered sunbathing and relaxing. Both bedrooms have patio doors leading out to part of the pub's beer garden. Parking is conveniently available in a private car park nearby.
