About the property

Beautiful 5 bedroom 4 bathroom farmhouse near Port Isaac. Glorious views, complete privacy.

The lovely old farmhouse that is Deer Park truly offers the best of all worlds - a stunning, peaceful setting with awe-inspiring views and plenty of extremely comfortable and well-appointed space inside.

Five bedrooms accommodate ten people in comfort - and NEVER underestimate the luxury of having four bathrooms whilst on holiday! There will always be one available!

The heart of the house is the wonderful, warm and welcoming kitchen with its wooden floor, Belfast sink and four-door Aga. Two fridges (we use one for drinks), and a really speedy dishwasher ensure ease of catering.

A huge oak farmhouse table seats ten in comfort, and two sets of French doors open directly out onto the terrace where an outside table and chairs also seat ten with ease.

The terrace, where we also have a large Weber barbecue, is the perfect spot to have a sundowner drink - the views are really stunning. The sun sets straight out to sea in the Summer, and the sunsets are often spectacular. We and our guests have often seen the 'Green Flash' as the sun disappears over the horizon, and it never fails to thrill us. After the sun has gone down, you can move to the lower terrace which is a cosy spot with a sofa and armchair positioned around a fire pit or drift back inside.

Back inside, and directly above the kitchen is the larger of the two sitting rooms, which has commanding views all the way up the coastline to Tintagel and Lundy on the horizon. A wood burner, comfy sofas and large TV with Sky provide an elegant retreat.

Downstairs, leading off the kitchen, the second sitting room, or snug, has an open fire, another TV with Sky and yet more comfy seating. Masses of books, board games and jigsaws provide extra diversion in both rooms. Can I just say that two separate sitting rooms are a huge plus when there are up to ten of you: one can be the social area for adults, the other cartoons for children - or whatever you feel like - the combinations are endless!

There is more on the ground floor - a good-sized entrance hall with sofa and (another) wood burner, then leading off that room is the old kitchen or scullery, where the washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer are situated. There is also a gas cooker here in case you are unfamiliar with an Aga (don't worry, you'll love it!).

There's another Belfast sink there which is a great place to dump wet swimsuits, and the shower room at the end is well-situated for a warming shower after a day on the beach. The whole of these rooms are paved in slate which means no worries about sandy shoes etc., and this kitchen is also the perfect place to park wet dogs until they dry off.

Those of you who love Doc Martin will recognise many locations very close by, including the whole of Port Isaac, which is Port Wenn in the programme. In fact part of our house features in one episode, and the film crew is often to be seen filming in and around the area.

The great surfing beach of Polzeath is five miles away, and the wonderful sailing mecca of Rock is a similar distance. Take the ferry from Rock across to Padstow for fantastic gastronomic experiences at one of Stein's places, and many wonderful stately homes and gardens are within a 30 minute drive.

About Virginia Childs

I used to be an hotelier and loved it, despite the hellish hours. Looking after friends and family is something I love to do now, making sure they have everything they need to relax and be comfortable - and the same goes for guests at Deer Park.

Why Virginia Childs chose Saint Teath

At Deer Park we are surrounded by fields, sky and sea, which means complete peace - and yet we are only minutes away from the bustle of Port Isaac, the surfing and sailing beaches of Polzeath and Rock and the foodie paradise that is Padstow.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The views here are arguably the best I have seen in Cornwall.

Car: recommended


5 minutes walk from the house down to the sea and a lovely rocky inlet. Sandy beaches are too many to mention, the closest being only a 5 minute drive away at Port Gaverne - and recently voted one of the safest beaches in Cornwall.


Newquay airport is very well served from all major UK airports including Gatwick.


Port Isaac, of Doc Martin fame, is the nearest village and is a five minute drive away. Nathan Outlaw has two restaurants there - one in the harbour, with one Michelin Star, and another, just opened, which has spectacular sea views, and two Michelin Stars. There are also many many other places to eat - pubs and restaurants. Rock and Padstow are a 15 minute drive (and foot ferry for Pastow). 15 minutes drive up the coast are the historic villages of Boscastle and Tintagel.

Further Details:

Port Isaac has a great, newly refurbished supermarket, a cashpoint and many boutique shops, whilst the local Market Town of Wadebridge, at seven miles away, offers everything else a good town should. The places of interest in Cornwall are many and diverse, ranging from Michelin Star eating at Port Isaac, Rock and Padstow to world famous gardens at the Eden Project, Heligan and others. Coasteering and all other water activities are available within a matter of a few miles. Sailing and water skiing lessons are available at Rock, and St Enedoc, also in Rock, is a famous and beautiful golf course.
