About David Watson

'Beam Reach' has been our wonderful holiday home since 2001.

The nieces & nephews, our parents, brother and sisters have had many years of wonderful holidays here.

Although we live in London, the family is spread across England, and some of them now live abroad.

The kids are now all grown up, but we still meet up here in sunny Cornwall especially in the winter (it is the warmest part of Britain!).

We love the big rooms, and it's a great house for all the generations together.

We can spend all day hanging about the pool (and summers seem longer here), but we've also planted the gardens to be lush and colourful year round.

We extended the house in late 2015, adding a fifth bedroom with it's own en-suite bathroom.

David Watson purchased this house in 2001

Why David Watson chose Newquay & St Austell area

We looked for several years before finding 'Beam Reach'.

We wanted something modern: big rooms, big windows, high ceilings, views - no cottages for us!

Somewhere for the *whole* extended family to meet up.

The sea view was essential, but the huge garden and swimming pool was the surprised that sealed the deal.

We bought from the architect who built and treasured the house, we've modernised and upgraded, but we try to keep his original vision.

What makes this house unique

Our family say the house is big enough to spend a whole week without leaving the grounds (except for quick trips to the big Tesco's that's close by).

Lounging by the pool. Enjoying the view. Lunch & Dinner outside on the sheltered patio - surrounded by the wonderful garden.

Cosied up around the real fire in winter.

But, there is lots to do as well.

It's great for Golfers (that's my brother) and Sailors (all of us). We love visiting the Cornish gardens, and this area is famous for them. And then there's the Eden Project, and the wonderful old harbours like Georgetown.

The Carlyon Bay Hotel is close by, great for food, and a wonderful Spa (serious pampering).

But, most of all, its that the house is big enough for all of us to spread out and relax.

Large modern house in a beautiful position, beautiful gardens and huge swimming pool

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The gardens are very large and are completely fenced in with a good view of the bay. Each year new shrubs and trees are added and a regular gardener keeps the lawns striped and neat. The pool is very large and was a great addition to our holiday. Plenty of parking space, a modern well equipped kitchen and two very spacious en-suite bedrooms - one ultra modern. Three sky boxes/TVs - one in each en-suite and one in the lounge. Every book/dvd you could ever want to read or watch in the library. Some maintenance overdue but nothing that detracted from our holiday. A problem reported on our arrival was addressed very quickly by the owner and satisfactorily resolved - Thank you David.

Great for a family holiday - pool made it fabulous

  • 4 of 5

Great property for a family holiday with comfortable beds. Little TLC required in the house and a table on the deck upstairs would be excellent.

The pool was fabulous and it is huge for a private villa. We spent loads of time in the pool and at the house as the weather was so good.

V loud music from the next door on last night until 4am which was not great before a long drive home.

Overall v good but the house could do with a little updating but was great.

Thanks

Wonderful family house

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a 7 night family reunion in Beam Reach, a fabulous week in a wonderful house. Fantastic heated pool, sea views, lovely rooms, books, games, DVD's all the kitchen equipment you could need (including the all important Espresso machine and dishwasher !) With plenty of space for 8 adults 3 children and a baby ! Excellent communication from David who was happy to answer any question I had. Would love to return to the house in the future :D

Great place for family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay - house big enough for 3 couples plus children.

Lots to do in the local area and a bonus to have pubs and restaurants within walking distance.

Perfect for a family holiday, house and garden beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Better then we all expected , picture doesnt do the home justice, everything was clean and tidy. we had fantastic wheather and the pool was great for cooling down after a day out. Garden was big enough to play rounders with the family and we were all sad when the time came to leave. Highly recommend

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

Carlyon Bay Beach is around 10 minutes walk. It is a shelter bay with soft sand.

The coast here is a mixture of dramatic cliffs and sheltered bays. So there are many other beaches to choose from within a short drive.

Porhtpean is our favourite, and around 15 minutes drive (8 mins according to Google - but these are pretty country roads!).

Travel:

Car Recommended - ample parking.

St Austell railway station is around 3 miles.

Distances:

Georgetown's Historic Harbour around 5 minutes drive or 20 minutes walk.

Tesco's Superstore about 5 minutes drive - for all your groceries.

St Austell Town Centre about 10 minutes drive, with a wide range of Shops.

The Eden Project about 25 minutes drive - the largest indoor rain-forest, a centre for ecology and education, with an arts and music program too.

Further Details:

Carlyon Bay has a sheltered beach surrounded by high cliffs with dramatic views.

The cliff edge is protected by bushes, and a public field with the South West Coastal Path running across it.

The front row of house are modern mansions, on the most exclusive road in the area.

"Beam Reach" is behind these, but because of the slope you look over them, barely seeing their rooftops. There is a partial sea view through the trees.

We think it's an amazing location, and a great house.
