Just 250 yards from the beach, this apartment is well-situated to enjoy a traditional seaside holiday.

This superb, ground floor, terraced holiday apartment is located in the seaside village of Downderry on the south Cornwall coast. Stylishly furnished, the apartment is set in a private courtyard of holiday homes, and is just a 5-minute walk from the lovely beach which is dog-friendly all year. To the front is a large, decked patio with comfortable lounge furniture, lovely for relaxing on after a day out exploring this wonderful part of Cornwall. Downderry is a very popular location for families and couples throughout the year and is just 5 miles from the stunning Whitsand Bay. Stylish Kingsand and Cawsand are just 8 miles away and also Looe, with its narrow streets, gift shops, pubs and restaurants. The Monkey Sanctuary is located just along the coast and is a great day out, or visit the car-free village of Polperro and take a horse and cart ride down to the harbour. This is a great base for exploring Cornwall and South Devon. Mevagissey, the Eden Project, Fowey, Padstow and St Ives are all great places to visit from here, and in Devon, Dartmoor National Park, Tavistock, Plymouth and the South Devon coastline all make for great days out. Beach 300 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 250 yards.

All on ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen. 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 bunk (for children). Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

    The apartment was lovely, very well equipped, clean and modern. Milk on arrival was helpful. We had a very enjoyable stay and found the apartment to have everything we need. Some guests have commented on how small the apartment is - yes it is but this is clearly reflected in photos and was big enough for the 3 of us. Only disappointment for us was the hill up to the apartment - I feel this should have been noted on the details. I'm 8 months pregnant and found it tough going.

    It is a very nice apartment for 2. Although it sleeps 4 it is v small for 4 ie there are not even seats for 4 to relax in front of the TV. It is clean and well equipped. The deck area is a sun trap in the afternoon. You are quite overlooked and aware of the neighbours...this is an apartment in a complex and there are other apartments all around and upstairs. Useful shop and café and restaurant all within an easy short walk. Beach also easy to reach, but you need to walk along a bit if you want to swim and a sandy beach.

    Unfortunately for us the place was far too small. We have an 11 year old, a 9 year old and a 10 week old baby. We found the place to be very cramped and would not recommend for a family. However, it was lovely and clean and we had a wonderful warm welcome from the caretaker. She was lovely. We cut our holiday short as it was too small. Such a shame.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am sorry to hear you felt you had to cut your holiday short but I feel that I should point out my apartment sleeps a maximum of four as opposed to a party of five. The photographs clearly show the space and the excellent outside seating for the summer breaks. A house may have been more suited for your requirements but this comes with a higher cost for that type of accommodation.

    My Husband is 73 yrs old and I am 67yrs old, we wanted comfy beds and good resturants that we could take our well behaved dog into and yellow sand beaches; we did not want to be cheek by jowel to our neighbours however nice and they were! For us we felt we had picked the wrong location. The appartment particularly the bedroom smelt musty and there was very little room to move about, which for more elderly people is important because we get up at night once or twice!! However, it would suit a younger family and we did book last minute in August, hence the sense for us that it was not value for money. Horses for courses- well mantain appartment, very clean, great neighbours, but not for us. Thank you.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; The photographs on Cottages 4 You clearly show the apartment and the area - it is described very accurately. Prices are set by Cottages 4 You. If you stay at the peak of the season you will pay a premium price due to holiday demand. I am offended you say it is musty and not comfortable and well equipped- the apartment is well aired, cleaned and bedding is fresh just before your arrival. Comfort and equipment is very high. My housekeeper and I do an impeccable job which is why we have been rated with four stars by Cottages4You. As for your comment about having neighbours, maybe you should have booked a detached house to avoid neighbours as our photos show we have them. All guests who have stayed over the last two years have loved staying as our guest book clearly shows. I would also like to take this opportunity to point out that bookings are from 3 pm Friday, to 10 am the following Friday. If you decide to break your journey and arrive a day later on the Saturday the apartment will still be ready for you but your weeks holiday still ends on the Friday at 10 am and not on the Saturday. We have other guests arriving at 3 pm and cleaning / housekeeping needs to be carried out at this time for their benefit and it takes time.

    Lovely location. Property owner has gone out of their way to make the accommodation a home from home. Our second time staying here. Lots to do in the area with the coastal path just down the road.
