Just a short walk back from the fine sands of the Cornish south coast sits Tidewood cottage, a modern townhouse offering characterful luxury all year round.
This house is ideally positioned inside a recently constructed complex of 4 other townhouses, just back from the historic harbour, with spectacular views across Whitsand Bay and toward the beautiful Rame Peninsula, best enjoyed from the decking area with its own Jacuzzi! The interior has many quirky features including the central, spiral staircase and the games room downstairs.
In the village, there is both a pub and a local store/post office. The start of the Cornwall South West Coastal Path is about a 10-minute walk away from the house and provides a beautiful view of the south of England.
The area and the house are in a forgotten part of Cornwall not normally visited by the crowds but close enough to the general hustle and bustle of main tourist attractions. The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Helegan are all about 30 minutes away.

Just a few hundred yards along the coast are large, quite spectacular, secluded soft sanded coves. These are so wonderful that they are just like being on a private Caribbean desert island, and that is no exaggeration.
The area is famous for its wreck diving and boasts some of the best in the UK, with over 300 wrecks between Rame head and Fowey. The National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth has won the bidding for the decommissioned warship, HMS Scylla, which will now be sunk off Whitsand Bay, Cornwall, to create an artificial reef. This will be the first of its kind in Europe, making the west country Britain’s diving capital.
Cornwall lies alongside the warm Gulf Stream, and its mild climate makes all manner of plants, including sub-tropical ones, flourish. Southeast Cornwall is a veritable gardeners’ paradise. Dozens of wonderful gardens, large and small, public and private, are open to visitors through most of the year and are easily accessible. These include the famous Lost Gardens of Heligan, gardens of The National Trust and many more properties open under the National Gardens Scheme.
One experience not to be missed is the spectacular and unique Eden Project. The project is easily accessible from the house in southeast Cornwall and is guaranteed to leave visitors enchanted, inspired and awed. Built inside a crater 50 metres deep, the huge biomes constitute the biggest plant conservatory on earth.
The coastline is 630 miles of pure magic, depending on how high the visitors’ pain thresholds. Guests who can only muster a mile or two will nonetheless be inspired by the sheer staggering beauty of this coastline. The house is a perfect starting point with the coastal path a mere 10-minute away, allowing a slow venture with home not too far from sight.
