Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
In Freathy, with superb panoramic views out to sea and along the coast, a detached, single-storey chalet perched high above the cliff road, facing south-west for all-day sun and spectacular sunsets. Enclosed garden with seaward-facing paved terrace (gated), outdoor shower and small lawned areas front and back. A hundred yards distant is a big open playing field (grass tennis court). The glorious, huge sandy beach is about 350 yards away, reached by a steep and, in places, rough footpath.Inside, smartly refurbished with cool seaside colours, neatly laid-out to make the most of the 180 degree seascape (binoculars provided!). Steps (or gentle slope) down to glazed front door to open-plan living/dining/kitchen (slimline dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer) with TV/DVD, futon sofa (converts to double bed for alternative sleeping) and big glazed bi-fold doors to terrace (table/chairs, barbecue) and shed (washing machine, tumble drier, space for surfboards etc.). Two neat bedrooms – a double (5' bed), and a small single (2'6” bed with pull-out truckle bed, zip-linkable to 5' bed with access from end only; hooks for clothes-hanging). Compact bathroom (suite with 4' long bath plus bath-shower and hand-shower). Best for maximum of 2 adults, 2 children. A sensational spot any time of year.

The West Country region
South Cornwall: between the river Tamar and river Fowey and south of Bodmin Moor is inland Cornwall at its most gentle and lovely: deep, wooded valleys (including on Bodmin Moor's southern edge) between sheep and cattle-grazed fields; tidal creeks (exceptionally pretty Lerryn is on one of them). Most of it is delightfully by-passed by main roads.
On the coast are long sandy beaches (Whitsand Bay), high headlands and sandy coves at the foot of cliffs (Lantic Bay) to walk to, two of Cornwall's loveliest cove villages (Kingsand, Cawsand) and a classic fishing village (Polperro). From Looe - river-mouth fishing village/resort with sandy beach - you can fish and sail. Round here Daphne du Maurier lived and wrote. A branch line railway chugs pleasantly from Liskeard to Looe. Don't miss the Musical Instrument Museum near St Keyne. Just to the west is Cornwall's star modern attraction, The Eden Project, worth a once-a-year visit into the future indefinite, and Lanhydrock, a very lovely National Trust house and garden. Beyond them begins the extraordinary and spectacular china clay country, good for a visit (excellent museum). You should go to Cotehele beside the Tamar, too, and Calstock for the 'messing about in boats' activity.
Freathy: hamlet of chalet houses overlooking Whitsand Bay's fine sandy beach. Bus service to foot ferry to Plymouth from Cremyll (good pub), 5 miles.
