CALIZE COTTAGE, Gwithian, Hayle, Cornwall www.calize.co.uk
Set on the outskirts of the village of Gwithian with glorious views across open countryside to Godrevy Lighthouse and St Ives Bay, Calize Cottage is a lovely year round retreat. Three miles of beautiful golden sands and undulating dunes stretching from Gwithian to Hayle and superb coastal walks from Godrevy to Portreath are an enticing mix for those who yearn to be close to the sea.
Part of a sizeable country house built in 1870 for Lord Hocking and now run as a guest house, a very comfortable and totally self-contained cottage with two spacious en-suite bedrooms has been created. Large double outlook picture windows add a light airy aspect to an open plan living room that incorporates tastefully arranged lounge/dining area, and a well-equipped kitchen. Beautifully furnished and carpeted throughout in a sea of soft beige, a neutral décor pervades adding a restful quality to all the rooms. A private patio to the front of the cottage is a lovely spot to sit and enjoy the extensive views, or a ten minute stroll will take you down to the village pub and beach which is a paradise for surfers, windsurfers or those content to laze with the soft sand between their toes.
