About our home

Our house is an old Cornish granite detached house with half an acre of garden, a small pond, apples and fruit trees, a den, a tyre swing and a huge trampoline. Inside it's a family home with a cosy living room with wood burner, and a large conservatory/living room with a big table to live round. The kitchen is easy to use, with slate tiles on the floor and wooden work surfaces. Lots of books and space; there's a bathroom with toilet downstairs and a shower room with toilet upstairs. There's a small double bedroom and two small single bedrooms (one with bunk beds) upstairs, and a sofa beds downstairs, plus a comfortable double wooden cabin in the garden, so plenty of room for friends to stay. People say our house has a "lovely feel"...we think so, too.

Our house is in a small hamlet about a mile out of Redruth, our nearest town, which has grocers, fishmonger, butcher, bakers and most basic shops, plus the usual supermarkets, large and small. We're 10-15 minute drive from some of the most fantastic Cornish beaches on the Atlantic coast, with paddling, swimming, surfing and body-boarding. We're centrally placed as within half an hour's drive you're spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches, small fishing villages, and lively towns on both the north (surfing and crashing waves!) and south (boating, fishing, yachting) coasts. Lots of art, good food, extreme sports, clean beaches, great beach bars for watching sun-sets on long summer evenings, cliffs, walking, horse-riding - or just paddling and lying on the beach...

We're a family of three, myself working for a local environmental organisation, with two fab children of 10 and 13, and love the outdoor life that life in Cornwall allows. We have bikes, bodyboards and wetsuits to borrow, and are minutes from the National Cycle network and miles of footpaths and bridleways.
