Sympathetically restored to a high standard, this gorgeous 16th century hideaway provides the perfect base from which to explore the treasures of the north Atlantic coast, from Rock and Polzeath, to Port Isaac, Trebarwith Strand and beyond. Set back from a quiet lane, the house is hidden from the hamlet’s handful of cottages behind the delightful south-facing walled cottage garden, while a lovely rear lawn and a neighbouring secluded meadow offer plenty of room for kids to roam free while adults relax.
Inside the house are original slate floors and sea grass carpets, a cast-iron claw foot bath, solid French oak dining tables, thick firm mattresses with white 100% cotton bedlinen, vintage curtains and fabrics. The ancient thick stone walls come with sloping floorboards, oak beams, exposed stone walls, and window seats. Unwind by a wood burning stove in the large living room, or another set in a granite fireplace in the dining room. The snug has a cloam oven set into another inglenook. The double height kitchen has an Aga plus electric built-in oven, large fridge/freezer and two dishwashers; fully equipped.
The house is warm in winter as well as summer. Plenty of book, games and wifi. Parking for three cars.
A 15 minute walk takes you to the village of St Teath, with its fine local ales and good food, as well as a shop, church and old clock tower.
The house is ideally located for visits to Port Isaac, Padstow, or King Arthur’s Tintagel Castle; walks along the coast paths or on the wilds of Bodmin moor; and family excursions further afield to The Blue Reef Aquarium or Eden Project.
