THE SCILLY Isles are about as far west as you can go in Britain, but there are very few properties for sale and none of them is cheap. One, on St Martin's, is North Farm, a three-bedroom farmhouse with one and a half acres and workshops.There's also a two-bedroom self-catering unit which is furnished and fully booked for the 1999 season. The house in Higher Town has a beamed sitting room with kitchen area and study. On the island there's a five-star hotel and a pub. Boats run regularly to the other islands, and the farm is about 400 yards from the sea in three directions. Offers in the region of pounds 189,000; details from Island Properties (01720 422082).

It's a sailor's life on the south Devon coast at Kingsbridge, where No 21 The Moorings overlooks the Salcombe estuary. The two-bedroom, two- bathroom first-floor flat has a 27ft sitting room and views from a 13ft balcony which boasts timber decking and glazed windshield. There are two parking spaces within a protected security area, a dinghy parking space and running mooring. The communal gardens include a gazebo, a pergola and there is a shared store on the foreshore for keeping sails and boat equipment. Offers in the region of pounds 189,000; details from Marchand Petit (01548 857588).

THERE ARE sea and country views from Two Coast Cottages at St Ives, in Cornwall. The four-bedroom house on Penwith Moors, south-west of the town, is away from the holiday crowds who flock here. It has a wood-burning stove in the dining room, exposed granite walls and a beamed ceiling in the study. Outside there is a garage, workshop, store rooms, loose box and dog run, with about 10 acres of paddocks. Offers in the region of pounds 165,000; details from GA (01736 795212).
