The original farmhouse kitchen has a stone-flag floor and Cornish range ‘cloan oven’ and enviable walk-in larder. Find all the mod-cons of a contemporary kitchen too with granite worktops to indulge in cooking up a storm.

Late nights & Lie ins

The four bedrooms upstairs with two doubles and two twins all have the original floorboards with fireplaces, Georgian panelling and utterly delicious beds to laze in.

Soak off the salt water

With two bathrooms, one with double ended bath and the other with generous walk in shower, hosing off the creek post exploring is decadently delightful.
