Your views? Sun sparkling on the endless blue ocean below you.
Your soundtrack? The gentle ebb of the surf.
Your spot? Your hot tub, garden lounger, secret snug, private terrace…
Welcome to the ultimate location.

Downderry delight

As you draw up outside the elegant white façade you already know this is going to be something special. And then you catch sight of the views for your holiday and your breath is simply taken away. The vast ocean that sparkles oh-so blue in this part of Cornwall sits right below you and stretches as far as your eye can see from your living spaces, bedroom and lawns.

You’ll be enjoying the ocean views from both inside and out. Take a moment to step outside and feast your eyes on the hot tub, positioned perfectly for ocean viewing while you lie back in peaceful bubbles with a little something. Relax too on the loungers, also strategically placed to get the best sea vistas. Or take your spot at the alfresco dining table. And then there are the lawns, also with ocean views and a great big space for the kids and dogs (up to 3 allowed) in your party. All due south so perfect for those sunrises and sunsets that Cornwall does so very well.

Back inside, elegance comes into its own with, of course, the sea sparkling as the bluest backdrop. The living-dining space opens right out onto the terrace and those views. Plush leather sofas surround a wood-burning stove for cosy warmth on chillier evenings. Brilliant blue alcoves and the odd turquoise accent bring the sea inside and remind you of those views. The ocean takes the front seat in three of the five bedrooms too. Bag one of the two sharing the private terrace with panoramic vistas in peace and quiet.

No cooking is a chore in the simply sumptuous kitchen. Sleek white cabinets house integrated appliances and a Belfast sink, and provide the perfect contrast to the terracotta tiles. Yes, that is a working Aga and if you love to cook with a view, conjure a little something on the barbecue.

And on your doorstep, Downderry beach with that ocean lapping the shores and perfect for kayaking and snorkelling. At low tide, walk the sands to Seaton, one of Cornwall’s most desirable seaside villages. Or take a long stroll along the South West Coast Path before you head home for a spell in your hot tub and yet more of your views.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

Oak Bee has five large bedrooms, three with en suite shower rooms. There’s also a family bathroom with a P-shaped tub. Three bedrooms have sea views with two sharing a private terrace with loungers.


Oak Bee is a wonderful property, excellent location and beautifully finished house, every part of the house has been finished to a high standard and is a pleasure to stay in. The owners live just next door and were very helpful and friendly. We stayed over Christmas and they had setup a really lovely real tree and then decorated other parts of the house making it feel really special. Thank you and we will be back!

Mrs Sian W,

What a beautiful house - everything about it is perfect! From the well equiped kitchen, to the comfortable beds, powerful showers, lovely welcome hamper from Robin and Jan (delicious home made mince pies by the way), great games room, and of course that amazing view - especially from the hot tub. Weather while we were there was mixed, but you couldn't wish for a nicer place to sit and watch the wind and waves. I would highly recommend this property, we absolutely loved it - perfect week to relax just before the hectic Christmas period.

Mrs Karen D,

The owners have thought of everything and were very welcoming. Even the dog had her own welcome pack! The homemade scones with Cornish butter, cream and jam were a lovely touch. We had a fantastic week, enjoying the sea views from the hot tub and lovely walks along the beach. Plenty to do in the local area too. We will definitely be back!

Mrs Gemma P,

Beautiful and perfect for a relaxing break.

Mrs Emma B,

What a lovely place to relax and unwind. Everything we needed is here! The house is beautiful and is very well equipped. The welcome pack was great. Starting you holiday with cream scones and Prosecco - what more can you ask! Thank you.

Previous Customer,

A very comfortable home to stay in.


Overall this was a fantastic property to stay in. The hot tub was one of our main reasons for using Oak Bee and we were impressed that it was cleaned out every day for us. The closeness to the sea and spectacular views from the outside seating areas or upstairs balcony were amazing! A five minute walk to the beach or local pub were also other reasons we chose Oak Bee. The area being on the coast line gave us plenty of places to drive to and explore the tiny Cornish villages. Cornish Horizons were always pleasant and helpful with any questions of information we required.

Mr Robin R,
