Inside Broom Park
Broom Park will feel like home the moment you walk in, because until now that’s exactly what it has been. Starting at the kitchen, it is tastefully decorated, light, bright, modern and user-friendly with all you could need. Facilities include a hob, oven, microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge and dishwasher. You also have a lovely dining/family room with a large stylish table, long enough to easily seat ten people. French windows open out onto your breakfast area.
Moving on to the sitting room, comfortable sofas and contemporary artwork create a relaxing feel. You also have a TV with Netflix, Amazon Prime and a DVD player, offering a less strenuous holiday activity. There’s a round table that seats six, perfect for afternoon tea, playing games or even (dare we say it?) doing some work if you need to. Maybe you will write that novel here, it’s certainly an inspirational setting. Window seats dotted around the house will also add to the home’s cosy ambience and atmosphere. You can also enjoy the extensive library of books in the reception room.
Next to the kitchen is charming Bedroom 5, with a double bed, an en suite shower room and its own door opening onto the courtyard. It’s perfect for anyone who likes a little ‘me’ time, such as an older relative, teenager or even an au pair. There are four bedrooms upstairs in the home; the Principal Bedroom with a king-sized bed and an ensuite (bath, shower and toilet), Bedroom 2 with a super king, Bedroom 3 is a twin that’s ideal for children and Bedroom 4 is another double.
Completing your accommodation is a family bathroom with a bath and shower, and a shower room on the top floor — convenient for guests staying in Bedroom 2.
The garden and surrounding area
The gardens at Broom Park are, to say the least, magnificent. This includes a large south-facing garden, east-facing walled garden and west-facing courtyard. Furthermore, you have a spectacular south-facing terrace with a covered area and dining table and chairs.
The house is just a few miles from many of the south coast’s most beautiful beaches at Hemmick, Vault, Caerhays and Carne/Pendower. The picturesque fishing village of Mevagissey and the historic harbour at Charlestown are just a 15-minute drive from the house. Meanwhile, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are virtually on the doorstep. Fowey, famous for its Du Maurier festival is 10 miles east and the historic harbour of Charlestown with its tall ships, familiar from Poldark, is a short drive from the house.
The house is at the head of The Roseland Peninsula which leads down to St Mawes, passing Portloe and Pendower en route where there are endless stunning coastal walks. You can also take the scenic King Harry car and passenger ferry over to the outskirts of Truro or the passenger ferry from St Mawes to Falmouth, a vibrant port and home to the National Maritime Museum.
