500 yards from the pub at Edmonton and the Camel Trail, a cleverly designed, eco-friendly, smart ‘upside down’ cottage converted from a barn attached to the friendly owners’ ancient cottage, wonderfully tucked away along a no-through road with gorgeous, long, tranquil views over the Camel estuary.
A hundred yards of hardcore farmtrack/footpath lead to it with the occasional passing tractor or walkers.
At the back, a neat enclosed suntrap garden and you are welcome to wander the owners’ kitchen garden to their little wood, all surrounded by sheep/cattle grazed meadows.Inside, mostly wood floors.
Two steps up to entrance to tiled hall and two bedrooms (beds with footboards) - a double (5' bed) with step up to French windows to garden, and a twin (limited clothes-hanging space); smart shower-room (suite, step up into large cubicle).
Beech stairs up to attractively fitted kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker); 3 steps down to light, airy living/dining room (TV/DVD) with great views one side and French windows on the other to balcony with steps down to the garden.
A real retreat and a great spot for cyclists/walkers/surfers with easy access to Padstow (and good public transport) via the Camel Trail.
Edmonton: hamlet of former stone quarrymen’s cottages (no working quarry near now), excellent family good food pub.
Little-used lane runs one mile down to the Camel estuary (birdwatching) and Camel Trail (cycleway).
Wadebridge, 2 miles; Padstow, 6; the splendid Trevose peninsula beaches, 7½ miles; Camel Valley vineyard (tours, tastings), 8.
Excellent golf, walking, watersports and riding nearby.
