However, the cottage has changed since it was originally constructed (a plaque confirms 1824). The current owners commissioned a designer and architect to realise their ambition to create a bigger, lighter, more modern and efficient interior. The result is a tasteful transformation: spacious, yet comfortably cosy and welcoming.

A porch opens into the hall and from there the drawing room, where despite the lovely décor, the dominant feature is the gorgeous view from the bay window. A very efficient open fire adds to the cosiness provided by the underfloor heating that is throughout the house.

The L shaped kitchen /dining room follows on from the drawing room and being double aspect, has the sea view and opens via patio doors to the sheltered west facing barbecue patio (with electrically operated awning). A generous space for sofas and a large dining table (it seats 10) is matched by a bespoke fitted kitchen with integral appliances, NEFF ovens, hob, and a large island, complete with warming drawer, and a supersized freestanding fridge freezer. The décor of blue panelling and white details accentuate the fresh, sea inspired colours of the reception rooms.

Back to the hall and past the guest cloakroom, is an extended area with superbly practical storage: an excellent larder, a boot room, laundry room and utility, and an extensive wine cellar.

A turned staircase to the first floor arrives at a triple landing leading to four double bedrooms. A high vaulted ceiling with open beams and a Velux roof panel opens this area to natural light, enhanced by the pale décor throughout.

Outside, steps lead from the patio up to an office, fitted with shelves, connected by wi-fi: an attractive retreat or a very useful workspace. There is a single garage and a shingle car parking area. Beach paraphernalia is stowed in a locked surfboard /wetsuit store. A superbly sheltering garden, surrounded almost continuously by a traditional slate hedge, wooden fencing and mature hedging shrubs, protects the cottage from the Atlantic winds and from the view of passersby on the footpath to Treyarnon Bay, which is just a short walk westwards from the front gate.

The sandy cove immediately in front of the cottage can be accessed by steps which were installed by the vendor for the safety of beachgoers who find this secluded corner of the bay. (N.B. this cove is not part of the property).

Services to the property include mains water and electricity, oil fired central heating and a private drainage system. EPC rating D. Council tax band G. Ofcom suggest superfast broadband is available. Ofcom suggest 4G data connectivity is available.
