The property

About 2 miles from St Kew, tucked quietly away on a little hedgerow lane 400 yards back from a pretty, wooded stretch of the A39, a semi-detached cottage all on one level, converted from part of a courtyard of handsome Victorian barns.

To the front, parking and gravelled approach; at the back, an enclosed, south-facing, shrub/flower-filled garden with paved patio (table/chairs, awning, chimenea) with lovely open rural views.

Available by arrangement (£40 extra, fuel provided), a privately positioned Japanese-style wood-fired hot tub for two, looking to countryside and starry skies.

From front garden, door (5'10" lintel) to hall (step); living/dining room, filled with light from large skylight in its lofty vaulted ceiling, with woodburner, TV/DVD, iPod dock and door to garden; kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker); double bedroom (5' bed) with TV and pretty garden view; bathroom (suite, corner bath plus separate shower).

No babies.

A good place in which to relax or to tour from, close to many fine surfing beaches. St Kew: little village (good food pub, medieval church) amid trees in a valley, off the beaten track.

Golf, 1 mile.

Sea at Port Isaac/Port Gaverne (cove beach), 3½ miles, or Polzeath (splendid sand/surf beach), 5½, or Rock (sandy beach, watersports, sailing school and St Enodoc golf course), 4½.

Camel Trail, 4 miles.

About the location


Port Isaac 4 miles ; Wadebridge 4 miles ; Bodmin 10 miles

Not far from Port Isaac, St Kew is a small village – the first recorded in Cornwall! - on the north Cornish coast. The village church dates from the fifteenth century and is home to some remarkable stained glass windows. Also in St Kew is a traditional village pub and a golf course, and there is a donkey sanctuary at St Kew Highway. The St Kew Inn also dates from the fifteenth century, and boasts a lovely open fire in winter and a pretty beer garden for sunshine drinks in the summer. There are some lovely walks in the countryside surrounding St Kew, including a circular route through the river valleys.
