Offering 2 lounges both with ample comfy seating, tv, dvd, freeview and both enjoying the stunning views. Dining room: again enjoying the views and offers enough space for everyone to sit together, or for the tables to be separated to have a smaller intimate setting. Kitchen: extremely well-equipped and offers large gas cooker with hobs, extractor fan, separate grill, dishwasher, 2 microwaves, 2 large fridges and chest freezer. Utility room: laundry room with large washing machine and tumble dryer. Outside: garden has to be seen to be believed, offering a patio area with wooden garden furniture, bbq and large lawn area in front of the property. Amenities: ample off-road parking.

The West Country - the counties of Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset - enjoys a milder climate than much of England, and consequently Cornwall has long been a popular summer getaway. The area provides the best surfing in England, with towns like Newquay, Bude and Croyde filling with enthusiasts every year. There is excellent walking on Bodmin Moor, domain of the legendary beast, and the coastline is wild and beautiful. There are scenic towns such as Penzance to explore and delicious Cornish pasties to sample. The area also has Celtic links and the legend of King Arthur came from here. It is easy to see where the myths of this area spring from, with the Bronze Age remains and standing stones which still dot the landscape. The Roman city of Bath and seaside resorts of Torquay and Bournemouth are great holiday destinations. The old port town of Plymouth is rich in history and Exeter cathedral is magnificent. If you're after some high class cooking, Padstow offers the famous seafood restaurant run by chef Rick Stein.
