The bungalow is situated in the village of Tywardreath in south Cornwall, three-quarters of a mile from the sea and half a mile from Par railway station. It lies away from main roads yet is easy to drive to.

Tywardreath is a quiet village with a lively 650 year old parish church dedicated to St Andrew, the New Inn, and a few shops, small but good - hairdresser, newsagent-and-store, family butcher and fish-and-chip shop.

Leading from the hall is a utility room with a WC, wash basin, large sink and spin-dryer.

There are two double bedrooms, a large one with twin beds with room for a wheelchair to manoeuvre, and a smaller one with a double bed. The large bedroom has French windows opening onto a paved garden path.

The bathroom is roomy with space beside the WC and the bath for a wheelchair, the bath has normal handgrips and a non-slip bottom. There is a roomy shower with shower curtain and tiled floor and minimal height edge, there is also a shower seat.

The bungalow is carpeted throughout and has gas central heating, colour TV and radios. It is comfortably furnished as a home rather than functionally as a purpose built holiday unit and we hope this will assist people to relax and enjoy their holiday.

Pillows, duvets and bed linen are provided (please provide your own towels).

All the bungalow windows look out onto a secluded and sheltered garden. The garden is sunny with trees, flowers and a lawn, it also has a pond stocked with plants and fish. (This could be a hazard to small children - please bear this in mind before booking).

The bungalow is of an unusual design, the living area has glass and timber room divisions so that there are views right through the kitchen, sitting room and conservatory to the garden making it very light, sunny and giving it a spacious atmosphere. It won an award from the Cornish Buildings Group in 1985 as the best new house in Cornwall.

Non-smokers preferred. No pets.

The South Coast of Cornwall has many attractive small towns and villages, beautiful coastal scenery, wooded valleys and lovely countryside to explore.

Lanhydrock is the nearest National Trust property (approx. 7 miles). The house has a lift available for disabled people and beautiful grounds and woodland, special viewing platforms for wheelchair users have just been completed on the River Fowey.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan are 9 miles distant.

Although mainline railway trains run from London Paddington and call at nearby Par, a car is essential if you wish to explore the coast and countryside.
