LOCATION The property is situated in an elevated position on a south facing hillside within the leafy and historic village environment, only a short walk from the beach with slipway providing boat access/storage (by permit). Usual village facilities are all within walking distance and include a primary school, public houses, restaurants, church, beach cafe, doctors' surgery and village store/post office.

Similar facilities are available at St Germans, which also has a mainline railway station providing an excellent commuter link with Plymouth (Plymouth to London Paddington 3 hours). The neighbouring village of Seaton also has a beach and beautiful countryside park with riverside and woodland walks. Additional local facilities include golf at Portwrinkle and Looe Bin Down. The South West Coastal Path is accessed nearby providing endless leisure opportunities with parts of the neighbouring coastline in the ownership of the National Trust. The notable sailing waters of the area are favoured by yachtsmen and deep water moorings are available on the River Tamar at Saltash and at Fowey/Polruan. The village lies a relatively short drive from the A38, placing Plymouth within easy commuting range.

The town of Saltash has a Waitrose store on its northern outskirts and the city of Plymouth offers an abundance of shopping, educational and recreational facilities centred around the historic and fascinating waterfront areas of the Barbican and Hoe. Plymouth also has a cross channel ferry port with regular services to France and Spain.
