Blou Ebron, Cornish for Blue Sky is a stylish, semi-detached, ground floor apartment, located next to the owners home on a quiet residential street, just a short stroll from the tidal river estuary that flows in from the sea at Crantock. The estuary, The Gannel, is a tidal river, home to sea birds and wildlife and a great place to walk the dog or hire a stand up paddle board and take in a different view.
