This lovely holiday home has been completed to a very high standard both internally and externally and is the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday. The real feature of this property as the name implies is the beautiful south facing garden laid to indian sandstone with Cornish granite edging. Every stone has been placed with precision and care and the planted flower beds and pond finish the area off perfectly. There is an eye shape beautifully crafted in the fence so that guests can enjoy the sea view while sat out in the peaceful sun trap. (The pavement outside slopes down the hill so there is no chance of anyone looking back through).

Downderry is an ideal base for those who enjoy the coast, walking and the Cornish countryside. It is just along the coast from Looe with its bustling port and beach, harbour, shops, restaurants and pubs and the picturesque hamlet of Polperro is a fifteen minute drive. Plymouth is half an hour away by car with Truro & the north Cornish coast reachable in about an hour. For the more adventurous, Adrenalin Quarry is just a 25 minute drive away and there are great cycle trails at both Cardinham Woods and Lanhydrock (bike hire available at each).
