Spindrift is a rambling waterside property nestled into it's gardens and orchard/field behind the house., it is believed to have been built in the 1700's. There are three light filled double bedrooms upstairs, all with water views. Two have King sized 5ft wide vintage French beds and one bed is a Super King 6ft wide. All the beds have new and very high quality mattresses. Bed linen and towels are of a similar quality. Upstairs there are two bathrooms, one a shower room with toilet and the other a semi en-suite bathroom with polished plaster walls, vaulted ceiling and a deep roll top bath.
Downstairs the enclosed front porch leads to an inner door which opens onto a lovely slate floored sitting room and dining room all with different river views. There is a large open fire with plentiful wood in winter and the dining room has another open fire area.
The back door entrance opens onto the utility room and downstairs cloakroom with toilet. The kitchen has triple aspect windows mainly to the water and it is fully equipped with everything a cook might need, including a large range cooker.
All floors downstairs are black riven slate.
There is TV and wireless internet and a high quality sound system for IPod and CD's.
This is not really a holiday home, but our real home. What we like, you can use. We have books and art and well... stuff... It feels like a real home. It's the way we like you to stay. Feel free to ask about bringing dogs.
Surfing and sailing are popular on this coast. We also have a mooring right for a small boat, but it is a tidal river and the boats have to be able to cope with this. You can also fish from the shore. I've been told the fish are good.
The front of the house is surrounded by an old low stone wall. This is a real sun trap and good to sit out on. Our gardens are approached through an arch and up some steep steps to countless lawns and beds. It's a great exploring garden. Follow the steps up through the garden and you will come to our very secluded bluebell field. This is totally safe for kids and a great place to picnic, play games, climb trees etc. It has great views of the river.
If you have a very large party of people we also manage another property that sleep six. It's about a ten minute drive away on the cliff at Whitsand Bay. This would bring the total accommodation to12 people over two properties. Please ask for details and I will refer you to the other reference on the site.
At certain times of the year we can offer a discount for just two people occupying the property
