The beautiful north Cornish coast with amazing beaches, cliff top walks and enchanting fishing villages is just five miles from this charming almost secret, little villa escape.
Set in the grounds of Lanteglos Country House Hotel, with 15 acres of garden and woodlands to explore, Lanteglos Villa 25 makes a great family value-for-money venue, with on-site facilities including an outdoor swimming pool (seasonal opening for all facilities 28 May -1 September), tennis and squash courts, hotel restaurant, conservatory brasserie and bar.
With lots of safe space for children to play, it's perfect for a relaxing family break.
Port Isaac is a winner, just eight miles away - host to TV's 'Doc Martin' with little quay, dinky art galleries, traditional inns and restaurants a plenty!
Sail at the chic resort of Rock or picnic on the sandy beach, dine out in Padstow on Rick Stein's famous fish and chips, or enjoy cream teas and pasties in Polzeath.
For inland escapades, visit the Eden Project or hire cycles and peddle the famed Camel Trail.
Back at the coast, steeped in history is Tintagel Castle, a worthy destination.
Boscastle, with scenic ravine and quaint harbour is a great spot for coffee and cakes aside the water, or visit the farm shop café with panoramic ocean views and delicious food from its elevated rural spot!
The South West Coast Path promises the most stunning sea vistas!
Camelford town is a short drive away, perfect for provisions.
Lanteglos Villa 25 sits at the end of a terrace with two other villas on a grassed bank in beautiful country house grounds, close to the church where the 'Doc Martin' wedding was filmed!
The accommodation is homely with a contemporary, cosy yet perfectly formed open plan living room with dining area and kitchen.
With two bedrooms and family bathroom all on the ground floor, it makes a superb base for exploring the attractions of north and mid Cornwall, and a welcome haven for rest and play after a day at the beach or swim in the pool.
At the front of the villa is a table and chairs for morning coffee or evening tipples - or venture to the hotel's bar and garden restaurant or conservatory brasserie for a bite to eat!
