Creekside Cottage is a renovated 4 bedroom 3 bathroom village house on the banks of Mylor Creek with far reaching views across the water and rolling Cornish countryside beyond. It provides a perfect all year round base for water sports enthusiasts, walkers, wildlife lovers, or simply relaxing in a peaceful environment
There is a large and sunny front garden which enjoys a 40 ft frontage directly onto the stunning Mylor Creek, one of the very few places in Cornwall where traditional working boats still put out to the Carrick Roads to dredge for oysters under sail. The private foreshore and adjacent public slipway provides an ideal place to launch your own family adventures afloat or simply soak up the peaceful atmosphere and view the abundent wildlife on the Creek all around you, complimented by the sounds of curlews and other wading birds foraging at the waterline.
Inside the cottage has been comprehensively modernised to offer beautifully presented and well appointed accommodation ideal for groups of up to 6 guests. It's great for large families and suitable for up to 5 adults, but cosy enough for couples.
The interconnected ground floor reception rooms provide ideal living space for family and friends to enjoy during your holiday. The sitting area enjoy views of the passing boats and a warm and cosy atmosphere to relax on leather sofas to enjoy a movie on the internet TV or a DVD from the family library. The warmth of a roaring fire adds to the scene in the winter months.
A large archway opens out into a dining area awash with natural light and enhanced by a country-style kitchen diner. A solid pine table comfortably sits up to 6 for indoor dinner parties, whilst a large wood burning stove radiates plenty of warmth in the wintertime.
Leading on from the dining area, the bright and contemporary spot-lit kitchen features an oak vaulted ceiling and is fully equipped with a broad range of high quality appliances to make the best of your self-catering stay.
The adjoining utility room is equipped with a washing machine, tumble dryer and hanging space for wetsuits/walking/sailing gear. Leading off is a power shower which is useful after a day on the water. From the utility room a stable door opens out and up the stone steps into a large and sunny back garden which is ideal enjoying relaxed alfresco meals in the sunshine. The garden is enclosed making it the ideal spot for children and dogs to play
The contemporary style of the accommodation of the continues up to the first floor (the stairs have a built in stair gate) with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Each bedroom is furnished in a nautical theme, comfortable and bright, and with stunning views over the creek from 3 of the 4 bedrooms.
