The enormous farmhouse family kitchen is fitted with handmade solid wood units around a large racing green AGA cooker, a really special place to gather the family for leisurely meals whilst planning the days ahead. A separate utility room and rear hall has lots of space for storing any amount of boots, coats, and beach equipment or even pushchairs. This area includes a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is access to a large downstairs bathroom, with fitted shower over the bath. This facility is ideal when returning from a day surfing or playing on one of seven award winning local sandy beaches. A steep wooden staircase from the farmhouse kitchen leads up to a large triple bedroom right under the eaves. With sloping ceilings and views over the gardens to the sea at Porth, this makes a great family or teenage bedroom. Three steps up from the kitchen you will find a spacious and comfortable family sitting room.
