LOCATION The property lies in an elevated position within the prized and well established beachside residential area of Plaidy, only 100 yards from the sea as the crow flies. Parts of the neighbouring coastline are in the ownership of the National Trust. With almost direct access to the beach and the South West Coast Path the location will suit those seeking to pursue the seaside lifestyle. The quiet Plaidy Beach has a slipway and provides a superb environment for bathing, kayaking and snorkelling, in addition, Looe's main beach, the banjo pier and bustling harbourside lie within walking distance (875 yards). Local amenities at the Barbican (330 yards) include a Spar shop with a post office, a primary school, secondary school (both rated "good" by Ofsted), a fish bar, a baker, a hairdresser, and an NHS dentist. The historic town of Looe has a working fishing harbour, boasts a thriving tourist industry and is also popular with boating enthusiasts.

On the edge of the town is a branch line station linking with the main line at Liskeard (Plymouth to London 3 hours).
