Overview

About the property

House in Porthcothan Bay, Nr. Padstow, Cornwall, England - 600m from Porthcothan Beach, in an AONB, close to Trevose Golf Club and Padstow

Welcome to Porthcothan House, an enchanting Georgian house on the North Coast, mid-way between Watergate Bay and Padstow, 600m from Porthcothan beach, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a few minutes from the Coast Path, Trevose and some of Cornwall’s finest beaches, gardens and restaurants. In the style of a small manor, spacious, light, full of character and with a lovely atmosphere, it has everything for a really special holiday – at any time of year.

Relax in a blissful Savoir No2 Bed, the original 'Savoy Bed', absorbing the view of the valley and coast as you ponder the day's big decisions: do you surf at Constantine, walk some spectacular coastline, play golf or tennis at Trevose, have cream tea at Bedruthan Steps or treat yourself at Rick Stein’s, Jamie Oliver’s or Nathan Outlaw's. Or do you stroll down for a peaceful day on Porthcothan Beach ... paddling in the sea ... and wiggling your toes in warm sand.

For a wonderful holiday, celebration or relaxing short break – with all your family ... and friends ... or just for two.

Why The Owner chose North Cornwall

Instantly fell for the wonderful proportions, light and atmosphere of the house, its position and views and the distant sound of the sea and surf in spite of its sad condition after 70 years of neglect.

What makes this house unique

Faithfully restored over 6 years to its true wonder for all to celebrate, enjoy and remember on special occasions.

Location

Special interest holidays:

Activities of every kind: surfing, walking, golf and tennis at Trevose, sailing in the Camel Estuary, fishing, horse riding – even coasteering and other extreme sports at Watergate.

The Coast Path from Bedruthan Steps to Porthcothan, Padstow and Tintagel - Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - passes rugged cliffs, hidden coves, sandy beaches and wonderful views of the coast and Atlantic. The Camel Trail from Padstow beside the estuary to Wadebridge and on to Bodmin Moor is another favourite - either on foot or bicycle.

Coast/Beach:

600 yds from Porthcothan Beach, a sandy sheltered bay with lots of rock pools - ideal for swimming, surfing and crabbing with bucket and spade. At least 7 other sandy beaches within four miles (the "7 Bays for 7 Days").

Travel:

Newquay airport approx 10 mins by car. Bodmin Parkway approx 40 mins by car. Exeter (via M5 & A30) 1hr 40 mins.

Distances:

St Merryn/Constantine/Trevose 2 miles. Padstow/Watergate Bay 5 miles. Wadebridge 11 miles.

Further Details:

The Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Tate St Ives and Cornwall's gardens and heritage sites such as St Michael’s Mount, Tintagel Castle, Trelissick and Lanhydrock are readily accessible.

Several excellent pubs and restaurants within 10 mins drive - including Rick Stein, Jamie Oliver and Nathan Outlaw.
