The open plan living, dining and kitchen area has been tastefully decorated with a contemporary and modern vibe. The living area boasts underfloor heating,
a cosy, sumptuous sofa, signature chairs, Smart TV, a log burner, and “cocktail corner” with its own “Ring for Rose” bell, perfect for a relaxing sundowner after a long day at the beach. With stunning wooden floors and elegant white walls, it has a chic yet bohemian feel.

On the top floor, the master bedroom is modern with a tasteful nautical theme, a king size bed and a luxurious en-suite, while the remaining bedrooms offer plenty of space for the rest of the family. The large enclosed rear astro turf garden offers a great space for alfresco dining in the summer months, featuring a private hot tub, a barbeque and summer house, making this holiday home a great choice for entertaining family and friends.


Ash Cottage, Looe   

Ash Cottage is a newly-renovated two-storey cottage complete with modern, contemporary furniture and its very own private hot tub. Set across two floors and sleeping six across three bedrooms (including a master en-suite), Ash’s stylish décor and supremely comfortable living space makes time spent in your home-from-home a genuine pleasure.

Also benefitting from Kilminorth’s superb facilities, including a tennis court, children’s play areas and a heated outdoor pool, Ash Cottage is the perfect base for your break. You needn’t stray too far from the comforts of your cottage to enjoy your Cornish escape. For those looking to spend a relaxed afternoon in the sun, or even a spot of al fresco dining, a large decked area flows seamlessly out from the main living space.

Explore the 32 acres of grounds, comprising a wonderful mix of landscaped gardens and meadows. Kilminorth is perfectly situated for those seeking a spot of calm and quietude. It’s also dog-friendly and lies just minutes from the coast, offering access for humans and hounds alike to numerous beaches, as well as the popular towns of Looe and Polperro.


Wyvern House, Bude  

Built in 1900, Wyvern House is a beautiful and imposing gentleman’s residence in this much-sought-after holiday destination on the north Cornish coast. Sleeping 14, Wyvern House has been lovingly refurbished from top to bottom with nautical-inspired interiors while maintaining the original charm and character that make this home unique. Living areas are capacious; ideal for groups of friends or extended families to come together after a day on Crooklets Beach which you’ll find just 500 yards from the property. Bedrooms are havens of calm, some with views across to the sea and all except one has an en suite.

Bude, and its rugged north coast surroundings, offers year-round holiday perfection. On summer days there are several sandy beaches nearby to enjoy, in addition to Crooklets, or the town itself is a lovely place to stroll. In the shoulder months, the South West Coast Path offers rugged walks for those wrapped up warm. If you’re happiest on a fairway, then Bude and North Cornwall Golf Club is on the doorstep with preferential rates available for Elite West Holidays’ guests. Available for both long stays or short breaks out of season, this house is an absolute gem.
