An English House in the Sea

The sea is an essential part of life for Newquay in Cornwall. How would you like to live in a house on top of a small rock where the only way to access the property is via a small bridge?

This house is located on Towan beach Newquay, Cornwall, England. It would be fun to spend a week away from everything.  Waking up each morning with the sound of the waves beating against the rocks. While the gulls are forraging for food on the beach. Imagine the peace and quiet you would experience.

The house was built in 1910 and was once used as tea rooms. It was purchased by Lord and Lady Long (he was a former Tory whip in the house of lords) who converted it into living accommodation. It is now a Bed & Breakfast.  I am willing to go for a visit.
