Heliview Cottage is a stone-built, detached property nestled alongside and owned by the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, near Newquay Airport.
It offers bags of character and a contemporary-style interior welcoming families, couples and friends to share a well-earned break in an interesting part of Cornwall.
The cottage is a haven for aviation enthusiasts, with opportunity to see the helicopters up close, meet the crew and glimpse views of Newquay Airport from the bedroom windows upstairs.
Make the most of your relaxation time on return from an adventure on the coast and unwind into your evening in the bright and airy lounge.
You can get cosy by the woodburner during the winter months and enjoy a board game at the coffee table or catch up on your favourite shows on TV.
Rustle up a home-cooked meal in the modern-style kitchen and get the whole group together around the dining table to catch up on events form the day.
The sun room can be enjoyed the year-round, a lovely spot for a cup of tea and a chat as you watch the arrivals and departures at the nearby airport from the enclosed garden.
Find three bedrooms over two floors upstairs; there is a double and a twin, which has zip/link beds for flexible sleeping arrangements, then another twin room rests under the eaves.
This is the perfect hideout for the children, where they can snuggle into bean bag chairs with a good book or play games together, as the natural light from the Velux windows flows through.
Pass a summer's afternoon in the garden and enjoy a spot of alfresco dining at the picnic bench or dip in the hot tub under the pergola and take in the views of the surrounding farmland towards the sea in the distance.
St Columb Major is a lovely market town to base your holiday, close to all the seaside wonders of Newquay.
