Cottage in Talland Bay, Cornwall, England - Relaxing Location, Just 50 Yards From The Coastal Path And 2 Minutes Walk From The Beach
Little Phoenix is in a unique south facing position overlooking Talland Bay and just 50 yards from the Looe/Polperro coastal path. It was built in 2004 and has inverted accommodation in order to appreciate the sea and countryside views from the living area. There is a downstairs patio area and a balcony from the kitchen with table and chairs. There is a parking space outside the property. Oil fired central heating.
About the Owner
We took early retirement in 2002 and moved from Somerset to live by the sea in south-east Cornwall. The views from our home are special - overlooking a small bay, with cliffs and a beach. Many a happy hour is spent watching the tide go in and out! We built Little Phoenix on the site of a 1950's chalet and have enjoyed meeting guests for the last 10 years, many of whom have returned time after time and have become friends. As we live next door to the property, we are always on hand to help out, offer advice or answer any queries.

From the Owner
“We love Talland Bay. It is a unique and special place and even after a busy summers day, the evenings are peaceful and it's lovely to sit outside with a glass of wine and just enjoy the views and peace.”

From the Owner
“This is truly relaxing location. Many of our guests tell us that they come to unwind and return home feeling "refreshed". There is plenty to do if you feel inclined, or, if not, it's the perfect place to sit back and do nothing. We have plenty of books and DVDs for our guests to enjoy and like to think we cater for everyone (except maybe, those 18-30's who are looking for an exciting nightlife!!)”
