Full description

The Old Vicarage is a two storey, 17th century house of rendered solid walls (part slate hung) beneath pitched roof with natural slate cladding. The Barn Annexe is in a converted barn of sympathetic stone and slate character. There is a  modern range of steel frame and timber clad outbuildings and three little stone vernacular outbuildings offering further scope for enhancement. The gardens comprise some fascinating areas of tiered gardens and courtyard. Also unique grassed and shrub areas with rocky outcrops creating  interesting elevated areas for enjoyment at varying times of the day. The land amounts to approx. 4.8 acres with gently sloping enclosure allowed to grow wild,  through which paths are cut to two luxury glamping pods. There is consent and bases constructed together  with water and sewage supply for three further pod. The land is flanked by a fresh flowing stream, in part running through a wooded glade.

Significant investment in the services of the property has included central heating, condensing hot water system and new electrical installation. The property has an underground LPG bulk  gas tank and a bio-tech sewage treatment plant capable of catering for 25. There is mains water in the house and barn annexe, but spring water is supplied to the glamping pods (there is ability to supply to the house and barn annexe).

The Old Vicarage sits opposite the ancient, pretty parish Church for St Clether which is set back on the opposite side of the road. Beyond this, via a 1/4 mile footpath running up the valley across open farmland is the ancient St Clether Holy Well.

In all directions from St Clether there is scenery of outstanding   natural beauty. To the north is the rugged Cornish coastline famed for popular family surfing beaches and picturesque former fishing villages. To the west, the open expanses of Bodmin Moor ideal for  walking and riding. Dartmoor National Park  is to the east and running southwards to Plymouth Sound on the south coast is the hidden beauty of the Tamar Valley steeped in 18th Century mining history and renowned for Salmon fishing. 

Via the A395 (approx. 1.5 miles from the property), St  Clether has good access to the A30 dual carriageway spineroad for Cornwall and Devon at Kennards House. The former market town of Launceston is some 10.5 miles providing a full range of social, commercial and shopping facilities. Beyond the city of Exeter (51 miles) provides Inter-City Rail Link, M5 motorway link and International     Airport.
