¾ mile by footpath from Welcombe Mouth in one direction and ½ mile in the other from the excellent pub at Welcombe, a detached house with commanding views out to sea from upstairs, privately sheltered by its surrounding, enclosed well-kept gardens (tiny raised ornamental pond with safety cover). From the front gate a green lane leads to the Coast Path and down to the beach beyond (not a route for the unfit or heavily laden). Less arduous, a footpath across fields leads to the pub - remember torch! The house is smartly comfortable without being precious, with wood or tiled floors in most rooms. A well stocked garden surrounds the house (patio, barbecue), leading to a grassed area for ball games and sea views; beyond that, subject to grazing stock, a field with unfenced pond in the far corner.Living room (woodburner, TV/DVD/Blu-ray/PVR) looking to garden. Big dining room/second living room with TV and glazed doors to garden.
