In Torcross, a charming first-floor apartment, one of three created with much flair by the owner and looking straight to the beach and out to sea: a lovely view. The seafront road is traffic-free, except for access. From a small, enclosed courtyard (table/chairs, shared access), own outside stairs (partial handrail only) up to porch, front door and hall. Living room with woodburner, breakfast bar/stools, TV/DVD, door to balustrade and that lovely view; this is divided from the kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) by a semi-open old timber and plaster screen. Pretty double bedroom (5' bed) and bathroom (suite, shower over bath). A magical place to stay and remarkably peaceful for a prime seafront position.
