Full description

Mid 16th century farmhouse of rendered solid walls beneath pitched roof with erect slate cladding. The property has retained nearly all of its original character and features with modern comforts to the accommodation being provided in the most empathetic of manners.

There are slate slab floors, deep window reveals incorporating seats, exposed beamed ceilings at ground and first floor, inglenook open fireplaces and gracious interior surfaces which only lime plaster can create.
The hamlet of Westcott just outside the village of Tremaine derived its name from the western cottages of a large rural estate which the hamlet originally belonged to. 

Uniquely, Westcott is accessed via a rural cul-de-sac off a quiet unclassified rural lane. This creates a tranquil, safe environment with an “away from it all” atmosphere for the handful of properties within the hamlet. Nearby Tremaine is itself a hamlet with a unique little hilltop church, but otherwise together with Westcott  surrounded by unspoilt rolling farmland.

The former market town of Launceston on the Cornwall / Devon border provides access to the A30 dual carriageway spineroad for Cornwall and Devon. Beyond to the east (another 42 miles) the city of Exeter provides Inter-city Rail Link, International Airport and M5 motorway link.

In all directions from Westcott is scenery of outstanding natural beauty. To the north is one of the country's most stunning stretches of National Trust Cliff Scenery with southwest coast path, quaint former fishing villages and popular family surfing beaches. To the west  are the open spaces of Bodmin Moor ideal for walking and riding and to the east is Dartmoor National Park. Running        southwards the hidden Tamar Valley steeped in 18th century mining  history is renowned for salmon fishing and flows out into historic Plymouth sound with all its yachting activities and the Continental ferry port.
