Enjoying breath-taking views across the dazzling sea and a beachfront location, Downderry House is a vast seaside villa with a gorgeous hot tub on the terrace and table tennis for all to enjoy!

Your main living areas are wonderfully open-plan, with a set of three leather sofas around a fireplace, perfect for getting cosy in the evenings, in front of the 50” Panasonic Smart TV. A beautiful wooden table for 10 extends away from the lounge, and a large set of double doors to the kitchen creates a perfect flow of conversation and laughter through the house. In your enormous modern kitchen, with traditional touches including an electric Aga, you can gather the whole group at meal times, and with a breakfast bar/central island there’s space for everyone to get involved! There’s a second snug area upstairs for getting truly cosy. With two sets of French doors onto the patio, you can naturally spill out into the fresh-air and keep the conversation flowing!

There are five magnificent bedrooms, all embodying the warm, welcoming ambience of the living spaces, with crisp whites, soft sky-blues and vibrant flowers. The first-floor balcony leading directly from two of the rooms is the perfect place to settle for your morning cuppa and feel the fresh morning sunshine on your skin. The bathrooms feature a beautiful range of large bathtubs and rain-showers, all in elegant modern designs.

On a warm sunny day, settle into your luxurious hot tub on the terrace, covered to be enjoyed all year round, and admire the sea views, the gentle breeze rolling in over your garden, and the relaxing sounds of nature! Further along the terrace you can enjoy super stylish alfresco dining, with the same wonderful views across the glistening sea. Your lovely large lawn is a brilliant spot for the kids to have some fun, and you can look on from the comfort of the hot-tub or sofas on the terrace!

Just 18 miles west of Plymouth, Downderry is a fabulously accessible seaside village, enjoying a sheltered beach and peaceful environment, yet just a short drive from a bustling city! At low tide it is possible to walk along the beach to neighbouring Seaton, and with a shop, pub, restaurant and café in the village, and so much more in Seaton, you’ll have everything you need at your fingertips!

Huge skies, glistening beaches and wild flower-strewn clifftops are rightfully the lasting images of Cornwall, and its warm climate, amazing scenery, and diverse Celtic heritage, including the arts and its enormous wealth of archaeology, certainly justifies the fierce pride of its people.

Famous for its water-sports, in particular surfing and sailing, Cornwall also offers an incredible rock-climbing scene, off-road cycling (including the 18 mile ‘Camel Trail’ following the scenic estuary of the river Camel) and of course, walking. The South West Coast Path, which runs for hundreds of miles along the West Country southern coastline, is particularly scenic around Penwith and the Lizard in the far south-west, venturing through vibrant towns, remote cliffs, beaches, farms and fishing villages. Another incredible walking path is the 125-mile Cornish Celtic Way, mapped by a local 55-year-old clergyman, which will show you a wilder, even more romantic side of this luscious county.

Be sure to try a Cornish pasty and delicious sweet Saffron buns, and of course a little Cornish Clotted cream and Ice Cream! And for a local tipple, the three major breweries of St Austell, Sharps and Skinners serve excellent beer in pubs throughout the county, and because of its mild climate Cornwall has a number of vineyards producing delicious wine, and is even known for its production of honey wine!

Though the magic of the county really happens in the rural Cornish landscape, there are many enchanting towns in Cornwall. Some famous ones include: Bude with its excellent beaches, first class surfing and laidback, relaxed vibe on the north coast; Newquay, the surfing capital of the UK, and; St Ives, the home of one branch of the Tate Gallery, with white sand beaches and crystal-clear turquoise waters.

If you must visit a city (for a little retail therapy, or perhaps to see a show) the only one in the county is Truro, with High Tea at Charlotte's offering an unmissable experience, in a charming Victorian building serving Cornish-grown tea! There are two covered markets, one of which sells eco/organic products, and on Saturday mornings there’s a great farmers' market on the piazza where you can find local produce.

To get in, there are ever-improving roads and trains running right through to Penzance in the far south-west of the county, as well as Cornwall Airport Newquay (NQY) about 5 miles from Newquay, or a 30-40-minute drive from Truro. The nearby airports of Exeter (EXT) and Bristol (BRS) offer a wider range of flights than Newquay and will usually be significantly cheaper. Car hire is available at all three airports.

The Eden Project, nestled in a crater the size of 30 football pitches and home to the world’s largest indoor rainforest with over 1,000 varieties of stunning plants, is the ideal day out with family. Open 363 days a year, it hosts a fabulous collection of flora from all over the planet in a series of 'space age' transparent domes, and offers a full range of adventure activities, including England's longest and fastest zip wire covering 660 metres at up to 60mph! Great for the adrenaline junkies!

In addition, Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park is a fantastic theme park for family fun, and the whole family can enjoy a visit to Cornish World, with Kidzworld for a little fun and games, and even an Ofsted-approved nursery, preschool and holiday club at The Kids' Academy.

In the surrounding landscape you will find endless opportunities for an active day out with all the family: from fabulous water-sports along the sublime coastline, a gentle cycle through picturesque towns or a hike through the fantastic scenery.

  • A fantastic week...

    Posted by Gemma on 02/11/2019

    The owners have thought of everything and were very welcoming. Even the dog had her own welcome pack! The homemade scones with Cornish butter, cream and jam were a lovely touch. We had a fantastic week, enjoying the sea views from the hot tub and lovely walks along the beach. Plenty to do in the local area too. We will definitely be back!

    Overall this was a fantastic property to stay in. The hot tub was one of our main reasons for using Downderry and we were impressed that it was cleaned out every day for us. The closeness to the sea and spectacular views from the outside seating areas or upstairs balcony were amazing! A five minute walk to the beach or local pub were also other reasons we chose Downderry. The area being on the coast line gave us plenty of places to drive to and explore the tiny Cornish villages.
