About a mile from Mawnan Smith, along a pretty tree-lined lane in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a detached lodge to a splendid country house with fantastic uninterrupted sea views, surrounded by 6½ acres of level gardens and grounds with large wildlife pond (5' deep) and fountain pool (both unfenced). You have your own sunny patio and lawn plus secluded decking area with furniture, and are welcome to enjoy some of the grounds (abundant wildlife), from the secret garden sheltered by tall hedges, to the field leading to the Coast Path (unspoiled Prisk Cove, 1/3 mile) and picnic table with fabulous views over Falmouth Bay to St Mawes and up the south Cornish coast. From the lane, sweeping drive up to the lodge; hall and living/dining room with long, lovely garden/sea views, woodburner, TV/DVD and French windows to garden; oak fitted kitchen (dishwasher, washer-drier, fridge-freezer, microwave, electric cooker); two bedrooms - a double (5' four-poster bed) with sea view next to a smart bathroom (suite), and a twin (footboards) with en suite shower-room (suite).
