Cottage overview - owner's description

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.

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.

Features

The house is a recently built town house with every mod con on offer from under floor heating and wooden floors to heated towel rails and even a sunken hot tub. The house combines the latest technologies with the best rustic materials including limed oak floors from France, Travertine marble from Turkey, Iroko all wood windows with special double glazing, hand made doors from Botswana and a cedar hot tub from Canada.
To while away those hours not spent in the Hot Tub (which is fantastic both in good and bad weather) or meandering along the beach, there is also a large 42 inch flat screen Television in the TV Den with SKY+ HD, Sky Sports and Movies as well as a superb Sony Home Cinema system with High Definition DVD/CD player, a Microsoft XBox, table football, plus the mandatory wireless broadband connection.
Or of course for those energetic types there's 630 miles of South West Coastal pathway giving you some of the most spectacular views in England.
The house comprises 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and a bunk bed room) as well as 3 bathrooms (2 en suite and 1 shower room). In addition there is a large open plan living/dining area, a fully equipped kitchen and a games room/TV den. Outside is a terrace and hot tub. There are 2 available underground parking spaces for guests.

Location

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.
Spring comes early to Cornwall and the gardens are filled with the delicate camellias and magnolias for which the area is renowned. Azaleas and rhododendrons follow, competing with the beauty of cherry blossoms and primroses. The month of May sees the opening of the Cornwall Festival of Spring Gardens at venues throughout the county. It is an event not to be missed!
In summer, the roses make the bees, and visitors, dizzy with their perfume. In streamside dells, huge gunneras and acanthus shelter dainty candelabra primulas and ferns.
Finally, Autumn turns all to red and russet, gold and claret and bright berries and seed heads adorn the trees and borders. Whatever the time of the visit, guests will find sights to take their breath away and inspire.
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.
Within the largest of the three giant spheres, which is tall enough to hold the Tower of London, guests will experience the sights, smells and sheer scale of the rain forest when walking around the lofty gantry suspended in the top of the dome.
As well as introducing visitors to over 70,000 plants from all over the world, the project reminds everyone all of our dependence on plants for our own survival and how vital it is to conserve and value them. For an introduction to an unforgettable experience, visit the Eden Project website.
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.

Extras

After the exertion of a long coastal walk, Lilian, the visiting masseuse is available to give guests a wonderful Aromatherapy massage or an Indian Head massage, after they spend an hour or so lolling in a steaming hot tub.
Connie, the Housekeeper, offers an unpacking service for those who do shopping via the internet. Select from either Sainsburys, Tesco, Waitrose, or Safeway. She does all the hard work and then puts the food in the fridge or freezer. She makes a modest charge for this service based on her time. She is also available for cleaning during the week.
This is by no means an exhaustive list of services, so please just contact Oliver's VIP Concierge Team to help you arrange any of those little extras that can really make the difference.
