The property

Settled in the quiet hamlet of Tresean, a stone's throw from the village of Cubert and the beaches of Porth Joke, Crantock and Holywell, is this Cornish gem of a cottage, Old Kiddlywink.

Offering a traditional and quaint exterior, head inside to discover beautifully-furnished accommodation for eight, with a charming mix of contemporary and rustic, you will soon feel right at home.

Through the pretty front garden to the front door, you are welcomed into the open-plan living and dining rooms settled either side of the staircase; to either end of the room you can enjoy warmth from the woodburning stoves lying within classic Cornish stone fireplaces, with the sitting area boasting a range of plush seating to sink into after a busy day out and about.

Take your seats at the farmhouse-style dining table and chairs and relish the quality time spent with your loved ones.

The dining area leads to the ground-floor twin bedroom, with antique black and gold metal bed frames in-keeping with the vintage-style theme, a lovely space to wind down in and perfect for those with limited mobility.

The ground-floor bedroom has a door into the rear garden and its only little seating area.

Head back through the sitting area and into the country, beamed kitchen complete with Smeg fridge/freezer, kettle and toaster, Rangemaster electric range, Nespresso coffee machine and a dishwasher and washing machine for those sandy swimsuits.

Completing the ground-floor is the gleaming shower room hosting a walk-in shower to serve the ground-floor bedroom.

Travel beneath the exposed characterful beams and up the stairs to discover the rest of the bedrooms, with one king, one double and one single bedroom, all decorated thoughtfully with quality furnishings, some vintage and antique, to house your belongings allowing you to feel settled.

The family bathroom on this floor, boasts a stunning cast iron freestanding bath where you can enjoy moments of relaxation with a long soak, as well as a sleek walk-in shower.

From here open the door on to a private decked area, lay on a sun bed on a sunny afternoon and soak up the rays with a refreshing drink in hand.

When you're ready to start preparing for an evening out, simply step back into the bathroom and begin to freshen up!

The village of Cubert is just a short walk and has small shop for all your daily needs, local pub, The Anvil, serving great food, a fish and chip shop and super bakery serving some of Cornwall’s best Cornish Pasties.

Golf lovers are spoilt for choice, the closest course being Holywell Bay, where an 18-hole course has an exquisite backdrop of ocean views.

With a mini-golf course to it means the little ones or novices can also have fun.

A short walk over Cubert Common takes you to Porth Joke, Holywell Bay and Crantock beaches, where clear blue waters can be paddled in before relaxing on the golden sands.

First class surf schools are at Crantock and Holywell Bay, catering for all abilities from complete beginners to advanced surfers looking for further guidance, it makes for a memorable holiday activity.

Test out your skills after one of these sessions at one of Newquay's most favoured beaches, Fistral Beach, pulling in awesome waves from the Cribbar Reef, you can have a go or simply watch and be mesmerised as the pros practice too.

Newquay is not only home to a bustling surf and nightlife scene but a host of fun activities too, visit the Newquay Zoo where exotic animals live within the lovely Trenance Park, marvel at the marine life in Blue Reef Aquarium Newquay, and be encompassed by all things pirates in Pirate's Quest Newquay where a pirate-themed walk-through will take you back to another time!

The stunning Crantock Beach is not to be missed, this National Trust area is an expanse of golden sand and is dog-friendly all year round so you can delight in walks along the shores with your canine companion and back along the coast path to Tresean.
