Overview

About the property

Three bedrooms, one en-suite bathroom and two en-suite shower rooms. Open fire.

Lookout is a contemporary split level detached house overlooking the beautiful southern Cornish coastline. Situated at the gateway to Cornwall, a mere 17 mile drive from Plymouth, Downderry is a small village and although there are few shops they do offer everything for that essential purchase. There is also good eating in 'The Blue Plate' Restaurant, Waves bar and other local pubs and restaurants.

Guests can walk down to the beach which is approximately a five minute walk and is a mix of sand and shingle. Set amongst breath-taking views, this beautiful self catering accommodation sleeps six people in three spacious bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms. All rooms provide stunning panoramic views of the sea. The front door opens into a welcoming reception lobby leading to a cloakroom and large open plan kitchen/dining and sitting room. The seaward view spans across Rame Head to Eddystone lighthouse and Looe Island. The living area is perfect for a holiday in any weather. In summer, the living space can be extended to incorporate the decking and fully enjoy the view by opening the bi-folding doors. Whilst in winter, the storms can be watched rolling in across the bay, with the comfort of the open fire. A perfect retreat to suit all!

The garden is a south facing sun trap with wonderful views and is terraced with steps leading down to a small lawned area. It is perfect for enjoying the natural landscape and ambience whilst listening to the sea. There are shaded areas within the garden for those who like to relax out of the direct sunlight.
