Through a wrought iron gate in a high wall topped by flowers, a path leads up to the front door. Lawns either side of the path with borders a tangled riot of California Poppy and roses. A raised patio in front of the cottage has outdoor seating under a pergola covered with Jasmine and Passion Flower. The quiet street is hidden by bamboo, tree fern and palms – courtesy of warm sea air.
Along the side of the cottage a path leads to a paved terrace and BBQ area outside the kitchen. Here there is also a hot shower – perfect after an evening swim. Part of this area is under cover and has a large wooden box for logs, plus BBQ and spare outdoor seating.
A flight of steps leads to a (south facing) higher terrace with a Summer house with a lovely quiet view of the hillside opposite and allotments over the fence nextdoor.
Summer house has Lloyd loom chairs and sun loungers. Space outside for BBQ if required.

Location & Parking:
The cottage is on ‘Rattle Street’, a pedestrian only street about 20 yards from ‘Canton’ (the main street leading to the sea). The village bakery and main shop is on Canton a two minute walk from the cottage and there is sometimes a lovely smell of baking bread hereabouts.
It is possible to stop and unload near the entrance to Rattle Street, but parking must be either in the village carpark about 100 yards away (charge of £24 per week), or on a parking space owned by the cottage about 120 yards away. It is possible to park on Canton from 6pm to 8am, if you can find a space!
