Duloe Manor is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 42,000 investors across more than 30 locations. You can find out more about Duloe Manor below, but first a brief explanation about the Holiday Property Bond.

A. How can I holiday better?

Invest from £5,000 in the Holiday Property Bond for exclusive access to a portfolio of over 1,400 top quality villas, cottages and apartments in over 30 locations across the UK and Europe. For each £1 invested you will receive one Holiday Point each year which you can use to book the properties. And when staying in them you do not pay a commercial rent, just a no-profit user charge covering actual running, maintenance and refurbishment costs. This charge is level throughout the year so there are no high season premiums. For a studio the charge averages about £315 a week, for a two bedroom property around £480 a week. Larger properties are also available. This no-profit user charge is only payable when you want to go on holiday. Your only ongoing commitment is a quarterly fee of just over £30 – that is around £130 a year.

B. Will there be more properties in the future?

As we attract more investors the more properties we will add to the portfolio – increasing your holiday choice still further.

C. How long can I holiday with HPB?

For life if you wish – the holiday benefits last as long as you hold the Bond. In due course you can pass it and the holiday benefits to your children and grandchildren, as many of our earlier investors have already done. If, however, at some point you and your family no longer wish to holiday with us you can surrender your Bond back to the company after two years or more (subject to deferral in exceptional circumstances). You will not get back the full amount you invested, although we would hope that you will have had some wonderful holidays. What you do get back will reflect initial charges (25%) taken before your money is invested in the HPB fund of holiday properties and securities. The fund itself also pays annual charges of around 2.5% and other overheads. The value of the fund’s properties and securities can also go up or down and so, like most investments, your capital is at risk.

With its safe, sandy beaches, towering rugged sea cliffs and dramatic moorland, Cornwall enjoys more hours of sunshine than virtually any other part of the British Isles. It is here, to the south of the village of Duloe, a little over three miles inland from the fishing village of Looe, that you will find Duloe Manor. Built around 1690, this historic Queen Anne manor house has now been restored and converted into superb holiday apartments and cottages.

At Duloe Manor, you can make the most of one of the UK's premier tourist destinations. Cornwall has no shortage of things to do, whatever the weather. If cliffs, beaches and charming fishing villages aren't enough, then you can enjoy the many renowned gardens, museums, theme parks, maritime centres, heritage centres, zoos and wildlife reserves dotted around the county.

Sunbathe on some of the best beaches in the world

We're not over-exaggerating – seven of Cornwall's beaches were listed as Blue Flag in 2016. There are hundreds of beaches in the county, but if you're a surfer, one of the best is Sennen Cove, close to Land's End. Families, on the other hand, may prefer Porthminster, which provides safe swimming conditions even at high tide.

Admire the many historic buildings

Boasting more than 32 historic National Trust buildings, there are plenty of incredible sites to visit, from the grandiose to the small and unusual. Alice in Wonderland fans will want to visit Antony House, as this is where Tim Burton's cinematic take on the children's book was filmed. Plus, of course, this 18th-century mansion is beautiful – the gardens and parkland are particularly impressive.

St Michael's Mount should also be paid a visit. The Medieval church and castle are fascinating, but it's the views that will really blow you away. It's well worth the trek across the sand at low tide, or the boat ride at high tide.

Celebrate with the locals

Whatever you're into, whether it's flowers, film, fishing, music or something else entirely, there's a festival for it in Cornwall. Surfers and music-lovers won't want to miss Boardmasters in August, while cider fans will adore the Little Orchard Cider & Music Festival in September. Be sure to check what's on before your holiday.

Find a hidden cove

If you want to avoid the crowds on the beaches, your best bet is to find a hidden cove or inlet, of which Cornwall has many. Penberth and Prussia are examples of ones which have been beautifully preserved – you'll feel as if you've gone back to the time of smugglers!

The kids will love exploring the various caves and rockpools often found within these coves and inlets, so they're well worth searching for.

Lose yourself in a gorgeous garden

Cornwall really is one of the most picturesque places in the UK, if not the world. Not only is the natural scenery stunning, it's home to a variety of gardens too. The Lost Gardens of Heligan, one of the county's most popular attractions, should not be missed. This Victorian garden spans 200 acres and features ancient woodlands, subtropical jungle and huge stone sculptures.
