Contemporary coastal living arrives in Cornwall

With direct access to the South West Coastal Path, it overlooks the sea in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Instead of the damp, and basic holiday homes of yesteryear, families can now enjoy all the fun of a traditional British seaside holiday combined with high quality, custom-finished homes and hotel-standard resort facilities including an indoor pool, sauna, gym, tennis court and bar.

And, if you do crave a visit to some of Cornwall’s key attractions during your stay, The Bay is situated just an hour or so from The Eden Project, Padstow, Newquay and St Ives, while scenic spots a short drive away include Fowey, St Michael’s Mount and Looe Island.

The Bay itself is only four hours from London.

And because The Bay is a safe, private development, owners will have all the benefits of the on-site facilities combined with stress-free, "lock up and leave" year-round security.

A dedicated management company will be on site to co-ordinate everything from the cleaning and maintenance of properties, to arranging on-site letting if required. The hotel-style concierge service will also be on hand to make recommendations and reservations to help owners and guests to make the most of their stay.

Homes at The Bay have been designed by local architects to blend harmoniously with the landscape with outstanding views directly out to sea, or across open countryside.

The finest local materials are being used with exteriors finished in a blend of natural Cornish stone and cedar.

Many of the properties will feature decking and built-in barbeques to help owners make the most of the long summer evenings, and feature first floor sitting rooms with coastal views.

With prices starting from only £345,000 "off-plan", three-bedroom designs, the "Hillside" and "Courtyard" are available. 

All the homes are permanent constructions, using a combination of modern and traditional building methods/materials from local contractors, and will all benefit from a 10 year NHBC Buildmark warranty.

Designed to offer a "boutique hotel" feel using the best of contemporary design, The Bay’s bespoke finishing service allows buyers to select their own finishing touches to their home from tiling and kitchen units to custom layouts.  The homes all feature spacious open-plan kitchens, oak flooring, underfloor heating and stylish vaulted ceilings.

Rental yields have been independently estimated at 7-8%, and a rental guarantee over two years can also be provided; and with the ability for some use by the owner if required, this format offers an attractive "lifestyle investment".
