A master class in seaside-chic styling, 10 Ocean Views has been designed to take full advantage of the vistas and sunsets over Newquay’s Towan Beach and Watergate Bay. By day, parents have the beaches, boutiques, bistros and bars of the UK’s surf capital within a few minutes’ walk and when tired little bears are all played out, parents can kick back with sundowners on a private balcony.
Floor to ceiling windows flood the open-plan living/dining room with light and open onto the panoramic balcony, complete with a table and chairs. Families can flop into funky armchairs and a comfy sofa to watch the big flat-screen TV or a DVD from the large selection. The room is nice and spacious for children to spread out the board games and animal puzzle mat on the ‘wood-and-rug’ floor. The dining area leads into the sleek and well equipped kitchen, so parents can prepare meals and still keep an eye on what the children are up to.
In the master bedroom, with a luxury ensuite shower room, parents can snuggle into crisp, quality linen on the king size Hypnos bed for a great night’s sleep and then throw open the blinds and step through bay-window French doors onto the balcony. Mum or Dad can even take turns to have a cuppa in bed while watching something interesting on the wall mounted LED HD TV or listening to some tunes through the iPod dock. The second bedroom is a bright and cheerful twin which is just right for children. The family bathroom is next door.
