Description: Ideally situated for all the amenities in the friendly Cornish village of St Stephen-in-Brannel
This detached bungalow is A1 throughout with central heating by Economy 10; double-glazed and doubly insulated. In addition to its tax band B, all this makes it into a cosy home, with low out-goings.

There are two mini-markets in the village, one with PO & ATM, a modern health centre, with three doctors, two nurses and pharmacy, an active social club, decent pub and 700 year-old church. There is also a frequent local bus service to nearby towns and the coast. Although quietly situated, the village has easy links to the A30/motorway, rail, at St Austell, and local airports, Newquay & Exeter. The county city of Truro is some 30 minutes' drive and many & varied beaches and harbours are within easy reach.

Now retired, we would like to relocate to Portugal or SW France, but anywhere within the EU would be considered. Candleford is completely and quality furnished. Both contents and property are wholly owned, with no debts or mortgage so, with easy-maintenance gardens, garage & parking, it would make an ideal retirement home or rental investment.

We have a three bed two bath villa with designer pool near Benissa, Costa Blanca. We are on a mountain side with stunning views but this involves quite a few steps.
Would you be interested in a swap?
