    - Philippa, August 2023

    Dear Philippa, It's always a pleasure to welcome guests back for another stay and to hear how people enjoy the raw beauty of the coast seen from the garden and Beach Shacks. Hard to believe it, but despite the photos showing the 180 degree sea views and the lovely mature borders I've had someone describe the Garden as uncared for !!!!!!!!! Property Owner

The property

Set in Cornwall's most easily accessed area, you can be on the beach just an hour from Exeter's M5 Junction 31.

Upalong is a former coach house and superb holiday accommodation resting over the first floor in the lovely village of Downderry, Cornwall.

Boasting panoramic sea views reaching over the nearby islands and the dog-friendly beach at the end of the garden, this property is ideal for a couple, friends sharing or even a solo traveller looking to explore the gorgeous Cornwall coast.

With easy links to surrounding towns and villages by car or via bus and taxi services, and an array of eateries nearby, the convenient location makes this holiday home perfect for less active guests too.

Inside, find a well-equipped kitchen where you can rustle up your beach picnic, or a tasty home-cooked dinner, before making your way to the living/dining room to enjoy your meal at the dining table while planning your itinerary.

Here, you can also take advantage of the sofa bed, or simply unwind and watch the Smart TV while the fresh sea air blows in through the Juliet balcony.

Completing the interior of the property is a bedroom with storage for your belongings and a handy double bed which can be twins on request for friends or family sharing, and a bathroom with a bath and shower over giving you the option for a long soak or a quick rinse after a day at the beach.

Outside, be sure to make use of the gardens in the warmer months; a private patio with furniture and a barbecue provides space to din alfresco, while the sun lounger area makes the perfect sunbathing spot.

Venture into the local village for a bite to eat; the area has plenty of vegan/vegetarian options with tea rooms, pubs and restaurants to enjoy.

Walkers and explorers will enjoy an afternoon strolling along the coastal path which leads you to quaint fishing ports, quays and the beautiful Seaton.

Find Looe and Portwinkle within easy reach, or travel slightly further for a day at the bustling city of Plymouth and catch the ferry to Polperro for a peaceful day among traditional inns and fisherman's cottages.

Avid golfers may want to visit Whitsand Bay and St. Mellion, while nature lovers of the group can head to the Eden Project for a unique experience.

Superb accommodation in a convenient location with stunning views, as you can see from the photographs showcasing the adjoining village beach at Seaton, choose Upalong.

Downderry is a small quiet coastal village situated in south east Cornwall. Downderry has a sheltered beach, Post Office and shop, deli, and a cliff top pub and an excellent restaurant, serving quality local food. At low tide it is possible to walk along the beach from Downderry to Seaton, where you will find a family friendly south facing beach and the nearby Seaton Valley Countryside Park and Nature reserve is home to wildlife, including otters and kingfishers and also offers great cycling and walking opportunities. The picturesque working harbours at Looe and Polperro are within an easy driving distance away, and the wonderful stretches of the South West Coast Path in this part of Cornwall take you to rocky coves, dramatic headlands and tales of shipwrecks and smugglers. Further afield is Plymouth, where you will find plenty to see and do, including a marine aquarium, a theatre, large shopping centres and the historic Barbican waterside area.
