The Details...

Head off the beaten track and reconnect with loved ones at this beautiful family home on the tranquil Cornish seafront. Overlooking a small, sandy cove and the sparkling Gillan Creek, the Boathouse is a peaceful hideout that offers unspoilt seaside bliss. Get outdoorsy with the kids and embark on swashbuckling adventures, or relax on the deck and soak up the breath-taking, coastal vistas. Try rock-pooling, kayaking and sandcastle building, or beach walks, country hikes and barbeques on the seafront.

The Boathouse is set at the end of its own one-track, county lane and is a gorgeous 6-bed retreat in the rural village of Gillan. Its contemporary interiors ooze with a soothing, down-to earth vibe, boasting subtle coastal hues and a classic maritime style. Expect woven seagrass chests and washed-up driftwood, alongside sleek worktops, snug sofas and massive picture windows.

Theres plenty of living areas to socialise with friends, including a comfy lounge, a sprawling games room and an impressive kitchen-diner. Doors open out onto the flourishing gardens where youll find a wraparound deck and sublime sea view patios. Dine alfresco in the sunshine and listen to the lulling of the waves or curl up beside the toasty fire and watch the boats bobbing by. There are toys, books and board games to keep the whole family entertained, along with TVs, WIFI and a DVD player.

When it comes to bedrooms you really are spoilt for choice with an array of super king size doubles, twins and spacious family rooms. Choose from the two en-suite master super king size doubles up on the first floor, another on the ground floor along with a twin. For those with kids, theres a family room with twin beds and a bunk, or a separate single room with an additional set of bunks. Each room is dressed with sink-in beds and soft linen and has captivating views across the beachfront or gardens.

A few steps past your garden youll find your own private slipway to the beach which has a sand and shingle shoreline when the tide disappears. Enjoy a refreshing morning dip in the calm, creek waters or hire a kayak or a dinghy and head out exploring.

The village of Gillan is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is an untouched, coastal gem hidden away from the tourist bustle. The South West Coast Path is right on your doorstep, along with the idyllic Tremayne Quay and lush, woodland areas. There are also plenty of places for day trips out, including Falmouth, Lands End and the pretty St Ives. But with a secluded, little cove just a few steps away, youd be forgiven for spending your days hidden away.
