Garretts, set in the heart of the seaside village of Kingsand, on the East Cornish coast is a stunning Grade II listed family house dating back to the 1750’s and was once the village bakery.
Now a quirky and magical home perfect for large families or a group of friends the house rambles over three floors and offers a fabulous contemporary space to enjoy a seaside holiday.
The living space is spread over the ground floor with two sitting rooms, one to the front of the property overlooking the street and a second sitting room, perfect for snuggling up on the comfy sofas with a good book whilst enjoying the warming glow of the woodburning stove.
Beyond this, is the dining area with table large enough for all to gather around with soft seating, second TV and up one step an amply-equipped fitted kitchen with large range oven perfect for preparing family meals and the kitchen even boasts the original village bread oven (no longer in use!).
This is the perfect space to relax in the sociable and bright space or gather around the dining table to plan the next day’s adventures.
Handily on this level there’s also a downstairs cloak room complete with WC and basin.
Stairs lead from the sitting room up to the first floor and the fabulous large family bathroom with oval shaped bathtub and separate shower.
There are two bedrooms on this level; a double and a room with double and single bed, this family room boasts a small balcony beyond French windows.
A second door leads from this room to the cinema complete with a large wall-mounted TV to watch a favourite film on from the comfort of the two reclining leather chairs or the gaming chairs.
There is also a handy utility room complete with washing machine and tumble drier plus a sink.
An open tread spiral staircase leads up to a bright and airy bedroom with velux windows overlooking the roof terrace; a perfect sleeping space for a teenager or the young at heart.
From the first floor landing a second set of stairs takes you up to the second floor and a large bedroom with kingsize bed and ensuite shower room, plus another single room/study with French windows – so that’s five bedrooms in all.
Three steps lead from the smaller bedroom up to the decked and enclosed roof terrace – a brilliant space for enjoying sundowners at the end of a long salty-air-filled day.
In the centre of the charming twin coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand there are two local sandy beaches to enjoy and Garretts is just a stone’s throw away from a choice of pubs and restaurants if you don't fancy cooking one evening.
Venture towards the Rame Head Heritage Coast very close to the coastal path for walking and cycling with some of the most spectacular views imaginable and stop off at the huge sweep of Whitsand Bay beach one sunny afternoon.
Head to Cremyll just a hop along the coast to take a tour of the 16th century stately home of Mount Edgecumbe House and Folly, descending onto Barn Pool Beach for views of Drakes Island.
A regular pedestrian ferry service runs from Cremyll to the city centre of Plymouth where you can look forward to visiting a choice of attractions, including the National Marine Aquarium full of exotic sea creatures or the exciting exhibitions at the Devonport Naval Heritage.
Wander the grounds of the National Trust owned Antony, the historic Queen Anne Estate.
See the wonderful Polperro Model Village, or travel further inland to the Golitha Falls nature reserve for an exhilarating hike through the countryside.
With all these attractions within easy reach, Garretts makes a wonderful choice for a memorable holiday on Cornwall’s beautiful South coast.
