Watch Tower, Downderry
One of a small row of quaint coastguard dwellings built in the early 1800's, the aptly named Watchtower Cottage sits facing seaward fronting a neatly lawned garden extending to the edge of the low cliff, above the rock pools of the sand and shingle beach below. Superbly positioned to command uninterrupted views encompassing Rame Head and the Eddystone lighthouse, a panoramic seascape and the sound of waves lapping onto the foreshore will fill your days. Approached by a few steps and along a right of way, the curious charm and nostalgia of simple white rendered cottages becomes evident and your holiday begins. The sympathetically styled interior promotes homely comfort whilst retaining period character and in the living room large windows frame the views down over the garden to the sea beyond. A well equipped kitchen and four bedrooms, one of which is conveniently en-suite lead off from a central hallway. Bounded by low hedging, many happy hours can be spent in the front garden taking in the fresh sea air and coastal views although care must be taken with young children. Access to the beach is but a moment away down a small incline from the roadside, recommended by the Marine Conservation Society activities include, canoeing, sailing, windsurfing and fishing. Downderry lies between two of the most beautiful parts of the South West coastal path. A short walk will take you to the centre of the village where you will find a local store/post office, a beach shop with pasties, a newly opened restaurant 'The Blue Plate' and the renowed Inn on the shore which offers great food and local ales. A monkey sanctuary and Crafthole golf course are within a fifteen minute drive. There is parking for two small cars adjacent to a small rear garden.
