Overview

Just a short walk back from the fine sands of the Cornish south coast sits Tidewood cottage, a  modern townhouse offering characterful luxury all year round.

This house is ideally positioned inside a recently constructed complex of 4 other townhouses, just back from the historic harbour, with spectacular views across Whitsand Bay and toward the beautiful Rame Peninsula, best enjoyed from the decking area with its own Jacuzzi! The interior has many quirky features including the central, spiral staircase and the games room downstairs.

In the village, there is both a pub and a local store/post office. The start of the Cornwall South West Coastal Path is about a 10-minute walk away from the house and provides a beautiful view of the south of England.

The area and the house are in a forgotten part of Cornwall not normally visited by the crowds but close enough to the general hustle and bustle of main tourist attractions. The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Helegan are all about 30 minutes away.

Oliver Approved

What Oliver loves…

  • A wonderful balance of contemporary style, luxurious finish and idyllic setting, this house is the perfect vacation home.
  • The house is just a short walk from the sea and has some fabulous views.
  • The Finnygook Inn just down the road comes highly recommended.

What you should know…

  • The house in the winter can feel too warm.
  • While there is parking on site, it is through an underground car park which might only be suitable for small or medium sized vehicles.
  • Entrance to the townhouse is through a shared courtyard.

Just a few hundred yards along the coast are large, quite spectacular, secluded soft sanded coves. These are so wonderful that they are just like being on a private Caribbean desert island, and that is no exaggeration.

The area is famous for its wreck diving and boasts some of the best in the UK, with over 300 wrecks between Rame head and Fowey. The National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth has won the bidding for the decommissioned warship, HMS Scylla, which will now be sunk off Whitsand Bay, Cornwall, to create an artificial reef. This will be the first of its kind in Europe, making the west country Britain's diving capital.

Cornwall lies alongside the warm Gulf Stream, and its mild climate makes all manner of plants, including sub-tropical ones, flourish. Southeast Cornwall is a veritable gardeners' paradise. Dozens of wonderful gardens, large and small, public and private, are open to visitors through most of the year and are easily accessible. These include the famous Lost Gardens of Heligan, gardens of The National Trust and many more properties open under the National Gardens Scheme.

Spring comes early to Cornwall and the gardens are filled with the delicate camellias and magnolias for which the area is renowned. Azaleas and rhododendrons follow, competing with the beauty of cherry blossoms and primroses. The month of May sees the opening of the Cornwall Festival of Spring Gardens at venues throughout the county. It is an event not to be missed!

In summer, the roses make the bees, and visitors, dizzy with their perfume. In streamside dells, huge gunneras and acanthus shelter dainty candelabra primulas and ferns.

Finally, Autumn turns all to red and russet, gold and claret and bright berries and seed heads adorn the trees and borders. Whatever the time of the visit, guests will find sights to take their breath away and inspire.

One experience not to be missed is the spectacular and unique Eden Project. The project is easily accessible from the house in southeast Cornwall and is guaranteed to leave visitors enchanted, inspired and awed. Built inside a crater 50 metres deep, the huge biomes constitute the biggest plant conservatory on earth.

Within the largest of the three giant spheres, which is tall enough to hold the Tower of London, guests will experience the sights, smells and sheer scale of the rain forest when walking around the lofty gantry suspended in the top of the dome.

As well as introducing visitors to over 70,000 plants from all over the world, the project reminds everyone all of our dependence on plants for our own survival and how vital it is to conserve and value them. For an introduction to an unforgettable experience, visit the Eden Project website.

The coastline is 630 miles of pure magic, depending on how high the visitors' pain thresholds. Guests who can only muster a mile or two will nonetheless be inspired by the sheer staggering beauty of this coastline. The house is a perfect starting point with the coastal path a mere 10-minute away, allowing a slow venture with home not too far from sight.

Extras

Oliver's Extras

  • Chef/Cook Available
  • Maid Service Available
  • Babysitting Available
  • Visiting Masseurs
  • Do your online shopping and have our housekeeper put it all away for you for £10

After the exertion of a long coastal walk, Lilian, the visiting masseuse is available to give guests a wonderful Aromatherapy massage or an Indian Head massage, after they spend an hour or so lolling in a steaming hot tub.

Connie, the Housekeeper, offers an unpacking service for those who do shopping via the internet. Select from either Sainsburys, Tesco, Waitrose, or Safeway. She does all the hard work and then puts the food in the fridge or freezer. She makes a modest charge for this service based on her time. She is also available for cleaning during the week.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of services, so please just contact Oliver’s VIP Concierge Team to help you arrange any of those little extras that can really make the difference.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.
