The Ridge is a recently refurbished four bedroom country house in Polruan in Cornwall. The property has a large open-plan kitchen/dining room which leads out to the wonderful terrace overlooking the sea; the sitting room with its log burner looks out in the same direction. The study and the sun room are also useful, less formal family rooms in the house.

Upstairs the four bedrooms include a good-sized master bedroom suite and a family bathroom; one bedroom has a side French window opening onto a terrace.

The-low maintenance gardens have split-level terracing – the terrific sea views xtend to the entrance of Fowey Harbour.
