More about Samphire

With partial harbour and sea views, this cosy, comfortable, mid terraced stone cottage is set in a slightly elevated position halfway up the village to one side of a narrow lane which leads to the fishing village and sheltered harbour about a 5 minute steep walk down the hill.

Fronted by a small patio garden, half a dozen steps lead directly up from the road where the front door opens to a lobby area with coat hooks and an inner door into the hallway with a slate flag stone floor. There is a light and airy well-equipped kitchen / dining room at the rear of the cottage, fully fitted with modern units and a pine dining suite, and a wide archway leading to the sitting room at the front with comfortable seating facing the woodburning stove set in the hearth.

Carpeted stairs lead up from the dining area to the first floor landing where there is a bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath and a nice and bright double bedroom with pine furniture and partial views looking down over the village rooftops towards the harbour. Rather narrow steep stairs lead to the second floor dividing at the top, to a spacious twin bedded room with views of the cliffs and harbour, and a further twin room with beds tucked under the eaves and sea views. There are electric convector heaters in all of the bedrooms.

A stable door opens from the kitchen to a service yard and a fairly steep flight of steps leading up to an outside W.C. and a small hillside garden providing a pleasant secluded place to sit with views of the sea and coastline. Young children and pets will require supervision in the garden. It is possible to load and unload directly outside the cottage and there is one car park space next door at the back. Further parking is in the public car park about 350 yards away.

The harbour, small shingle beach and all the village amenities are a short walk down the steep hill and there is also a pub offering food and a supermarket at the top of the village. There are lovely coastal walks in the immediate vicinity, and the sandy beaches at Polzeath, Daymer Bay and Rock are about a 15 minute drive, as are two 18-hole golf courses.

Please note:
 Bed linen & towels are not available. No cats.
