Buddha Beach House

A luxurious recently built Beach House in a quiet, unspoiled Cornish hamlet just 30 meters from the beach on the south coast, fantastic in both summer and winter.

Location

The house, located on the south coast of Cornwall, has spectacular views across Whitsand Bay, and towards the beautiful Rame Peninsula. It is located in an oasis away from the main village and is set back from a small, historical harbour and rocky foreshore, leading to a large sandy beach. The local village has both a hotel (with indoor leisure club) and an 18-hole (SSS 69) golf course, which runs partially along the coast, a pub and local store/post office. The start of the Cornwall South West Coastal Path is a mere 50 metres from the house. The Area and the house are in a forgotten part of Cornwall not normally visited by the crowds, yet close enough to the general hustle and bustle of the main tourist attractions. The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Helegan are all about 30 minutes away.

The History

The entire site was excavated below ground to a depth of 4 meters where 5,000 tons of earth was extracted. Concrete piles were driven into the ground around the perimeter of the site. Into this cavity an underground car park was built using some 2,000 tons of concrete and steel. These tasks were an engineering feat in their own right. The main structure of the development was built on top of this, using steel reinforced polystyrene sections into which concrete was poured. This gives the houses a thermal rating second to none.

The development was finally completed after 4 years. 5,000 tons of earth moved, 600 tons of stone moved off site and back on again, 2,000 tons of concrete & steel and a lot of extremely hard work by a lot of people, and it all looks like its been there forever.

Ten Things To Do

  1. Golf – A golfers dream 18-hole (SSS 69) golf course in the village to challenge the most hardy, yet forgiving for those beginners. Other courses also nearby:
    • Looe Golf Club - Looe Bin Down 18 holes Heath and Parkland - Par 70. Good coastal and country views.
    • St. Mellion Golf Club - St Mellion Two 18 hole courses the old course Par 70 and the newer Nicklaus Course Par 72.
  • The latter tends to overshadow the Old Course which is also excellent but 700 yds shorter.

 

  1. Cornwall South West Coastal Path – 630 miles of pure magic, you cannot but be inspired by the sheer staggering beauty of this coastline. The Beach House is a perfect starting point with the coastal path a mere 50 meters away.
  2. Beaches – beautiful and often deserted
    • Portwrinkle - Two sandy beaches with interesting rock pools to explore
    • Kingsand and Cawsand - There are good beaches in both Kingsand and Cawsand with easy access from the off street parking. You can also take a small passenger ferry from Cawsand into the Barbican area of Plymouth.
    • Freathy and Tregantle - Excellent, clean sandy beaches stretching 6 miles along the bay. You may need to climb down steep rocks though some paths are easier to access.
    • Downderry and Seaton - Miles of sandy beaches. Easy access in Seaton and a short walk down in Downderry.
    • (All the above beaches qualify in the "Good Beach Guide")
  3. Diving - The area is famous for its wreck diving, which boasts some of the best in the UK, with over 300 wrecks between Rame head and Fowey.
    • But of particular interest is, The National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth having won the bidding for the decommissioned warship, HMS Scylla, has now sunk the vessel off Whitsand Bay, Cornwall, to create an artificial reef. This is the first of its kind in Europe, making the West country Britain's diving capital. HMS Scylla provides a unique opportunity for divers to explore the reef. The reef is expected to become a breeding ground for fish and other marine life and underwater web cams will mean that it can also be used for educational purposes.
  4. Surfing
  5. Kite Flying
  6. Theatre – The Theatre Royal Plymouth has some wonderful plays, most of which are travelling repertory companies including all the greats.
  7. The Lost Gardens of Heligan
  8. The Eden Project
  9. Other nearby Gardens: Mount Edgcumbe Estate, Anthony House, Cotehele, Llanhydrock
