Crebawethan Cottage is ideally located, halfway around the St Mary’s coast path from Hugh Town and in the perfect position for a lunch break for hungry walkers. (Please leave muddy boots in the porch.) Alternatively, take an afternoon stroll across the island for a cream tea. For the less energetic, the bus stops at the corner. When storms sweep in across the Atlantic, take refuge in our cosy tearoom. The original inglenook was uncovered during recent renovations and has now been restored.
Upstairs is a self-catering apartment for four, reached by a flight of stairs behind the cottage.
The sheltered garden is our main attraction, with plenty of picnic tables for eating outside on sunny days and a swing for children and the young at heart.

First-floor plan, showing the self-catering accommodation. The kitchen has a cooker, microwave and fridge. Well, technically, a mini-fridge, which makes a bit of a nonsense of the cooker from a gameplay point of view but looks right – in my experience, fridge-freezers are as unusual as dishwashers in self-catering places. There is only one wardrobe, strictly speaking, but there are two dressers as well, and Karen ruled that they counted.

One of the reasons why I chose Scilly as the destination was being able to build in a familiar British style but with a pretty free choice of landscaping: because the winters are so mild, Mediterranean and subtropical plants grow outdoors quite happily in sheltered spots. The starting point for this round was perfect for constructing a typically lush island garden (so thanks, Karen ).
I knew I wanted to make a tearoom at some point, cream teas being an essential part of so many people’s Cornish holidays, but it wouldn’t fit the café/restaurant requirements – I’ve seen a few licensed tearooms recently but none with a bar. Hence the self-catering accommodation upstairs. I’ve borrowed the location and some of the landscaping from the real-life Carn Vean Café, although the building is based on a much older cottage.
On which subject, I spent altogether too much time playing around with CFE and flooring patterns trying to construct an authentically saggy and lichen-spotted old roof (I really wish you could use terrain paint on roofs) before reluctantly concluding that a standard one looked better . Maybe they’ve just had it replaced.
Great and Little Crebawethan (spotting a pattern here?) are part of the Western Rocks, beloved of seal-spotters and birdwatchers and a notorious graveyard for ships. Crebawethan is also one of my favourite words ever .
Now I'm thinking of it again, didn't someone mention during the entry round that their destination would be Tours, the french town? I remember noticing it as it's the town my grandparents are from, so I was really looking forward to it =) but maybe I'm mistaken

I did a bit of that, and a bit of something else now it's almost finished, on to the final checkings and then pictures!
I'm feeling much more confident right now! I read the reviews on my last build and that renewed my inspiration!
Ok, so welcome to my Wave Leisure Center, on Florida! (Sorry for not being specific about the location last time!)
PS: Both lockers and all showers have the same design.
PSS: My sim is meant to travel around the USA by car, so I was thinking about making a gas station next to emphasize that
I'm possibly going to be late with mine again - however, please don't hold up the competition for me. The likelihood is because of health issues, and some other real-life stuff that has come up that I will be doing this a little more slowly than is required.
Venue: Bed and Breakfast
Built in TS3
No use of cc
When she came back from the theatre her single room was ready. It was, as advertised, small but comfy. And she woke up in the morning to a view of the beach.
In the breakfast room she had a delicious and fully home-made breakfast.
After that she explored the house and the lovely garden. The B&B was in a lighthouse which was still working.
It had it's own small landing stage and guests could go on a boat trip.
There were two terraces for the guests and a barbeque.
In the garden she found more opportunities for the kids to play and for the grown-ups to relax (or to play as well).
Guests were not allowed into the machine rooms, but the host let her peek into his kitchen instead, where he made breakfast every morning.
In the common room she found a bookcase, a table for domino and a kid's corner, also a board with the latest news on weather and local happenings and venues.
Besides her room the B&B offered two double rooms and a family room. Each room had en suite bath room and a separate entrance for a maximum of privacy and independance. While the accomodation surely was low budget, qaint and not the latest chic, it was clean and homely. Some of the rooms even had been renovated lately.
The Buckthorn room (sleeps 3). A crib could be added on request.
The Lavender Room was located within the lighthouse and featured one of those all-in-one-bathrooms that became affordable some years ago.
... and Vincent is killing it again! love that country/shabby cottage style
Unfortunately i'm going to be late too, I won't be able to post before wednesday. RL has gotten quite busy lately, after months of unsuccessful job seeking, suddenly they all want to interview me in the same week ^^
