      The ground floor is largely open plan and the abundance of windows and French doors provide a wonderful amount natural light as well as views of the beach and estuary.

      The well-equipped kitchen is integrated with a range of appliances including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, oven and hob.

      Millbay Cottage benefits from a fabulous detached annexe with large picture windows which frame the views perfectly. The annexe offers a well-equipped kitchen, a lovely living room, a double bedroom, dressing room and family bathroom. From the living room French windows lead onto the full width balcony which overlooks the beach and estuary beyond.

      Gardens and Grounds

Beyond the formal gardens are wonderful winding paths which meander through the mature woodland which surrounds the cottage. Nestled within the woodland is a Nissan hut which could be converted into accommodation subject to the necessary planning consents.

      Millbay Cottage is approached via a gated driveway which leads to the double garage, garden store and ample driveway parking. There are also steps from the garden leading down to a gate onto the road for pedestrian access to the lane and the beach.
