About the property

Self catering for 2 people with off road parking & garden.

The cosy, quirky accommodation is a converted Smithy dating back to the 1700s, with open planned living downstairs & a mezzanine in the roof space for sleeping. Off road parking & a garden are outside.

The kitchen area has a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer & oven with touch control hob.

The dining/lounge adjoins, with 2 bars stools at the old work bench overlooking the valley - ideal for breakfast or a glass of wine, or both!

Up the stairs to the mezzanine where you can find the double bed to the right, & relaxed beanbags to the left where you can recline & watch a second TV. The mezzanine enjoys views across the valley also. (Please note the reduced head height in the mezzanine - it is not suitable for the elderly or disabled).

The garden has a picnic table where you can sit & enjoy the surroundings & view across the valley to St Endellion Church.

The property is located on a network of local footpaths & is a 10 minute walk from the village of Port Isaac, home of Martin Clunes hit TV series Doc Martin.

A great historic place to stay. Well done renovation with a beautiful view of the valley. A short walk or drive into Port Isaac with easy access from main roads. A lovely bottle of Prosecco welcomed us...thank you Richard! We would definitely stay again.
