[Hope this is the right topic for this - it's not a business ad.]

dh & his siblings co-own a house on the north coast of Cornwall which is normally let out for the summer (crucial income for being able to keep it). A letting has fallen through so it's available on weekly basis for the next three weeks - to Sat July 23rd. The usual price is £1000/wk, but apparently it's now negotiable.

Below is SIL's description of it:


- in own land in middle of a National Trust Headland. Type in TR27 5EE to to see location.

- large, fully equipped, comfy but unfussy holiday house. It’s ideal for families with small children, dogs, surfing and groups of friends.

- two beaches either side – Gwithian with a view of Godrevy Lighthouse of Virginia Woolf fame - which is an excellent surfing beach, and which has a very good café for lunch and supper, and Fisherman’s, a secret cove down a cliff path.

- good access for galleries, restaurants and shops in Hayle, St.Ives, Penzance, Truro.

- 5 bedrooms – 3 doubles and two singles; 2 bathrooms – one w/ shower, one w/ bath; large kitchen with table, large living room; all conveniences – microwave, tv, dvd, gch, drinks fridge, toys, books, beach towels, etc 2 large gardens.


We use it ourselves and find it's perfect for couple of families sharing - up to 9-10 people altogether.

Post message if you might be interested & I'll CAT you contact details.

We've already booked for this year but would be very interested for next. Do they rent it out through an agency or privately?

Usually through an agent - all done quite formally, with cleaners in between lets, etc.

Suspect they may want to change agents, though, because of this! I'll speak to SIL and find out.

We're off to France this summer, but just wanted to vouch for the loveliness of the area. My parents live very near there and it's a fab area for a holiday with kids (or without for that matter). Hope you manage to let it Binkie.

Thanks for the endorsement Ellbell - yes really it is a great place to be - we had an idyllic two weeks there last year & so looking forward to when we go in August this year

- and for the excuse to do a shameless Sat am bump. Anyone?
