Private and stylish country house between Truro and the north coast


Blessed with miles of unspoilt coastline, Cornwall is renowned
for its variety of land and seascapes. From the wilder beaches of
the north coast, ever popular with surfers, to the calmer sailing
waters of the south-coast creeks and estuaries, there is an activity to suit all.

Ambleside Manor adjoins farmland close to the rural hamlet of
Whitecross, a short drive from the spectacular north Cornish
coast. Nestled on the side of an unspoilt rural valley and
protected from the prevailing south westerly winds, Ambleside
is conveniently situated for the north coast surfing beaches,
Cornwall Airport and the main A30 carriageway. The main
trainline between Paddington to Penzance stops at Truro which
is the Cathedral City of Cornwall with good shopping and
selection of private schools.

Long famed for its world-class surfing, the nearby north Cornish
coast between Mawgan Porth and St Agnes is now home to a
host of acclaimed restaurants Jamie Oliver's 'Fifteen' at Watergate Bay, the Michelin-starred Fish House at Fistral and of course the Scarlet Hotel at Mawgan Porth, which have added a touch of north coast, surf inspired chic, perhaps more akin to that of Australia and California.

Further to the north, the quaint fishing village of Padstow provides an excellent range of good pubs and restaurants
including Rick Stein's seafood restaurant and Nathan Outlaw's
two Michelin starred restaurant at Port Isaac.

Connections are excellent from Newquay. The nearby A30 dual
carriageway gives convenient access to the M5 motorway at
Exeter. Cornwal (Newquay) Airport is just 6.8 miles away with
three flights daily each way to London Gatwick besides other
seasonal destinations. The London Paddington Train also has a
sleeper service.


Ambleside Manor is a fine example of a spacious family country
house; beautifully appointed throughout and set in large gardens adjoining farmland.

Built in the 1890s the house was extensively refurbished in 2011. On entering, one is greeted by a galleried hallway which leads through to the reception rooms, including a beautiful bespoke kitchen by Rozen with solid granite worktops, walk-in pantry and comprehensive range of Miele appliances. The kitchen opens into the oak-framed sun room, which in turn opens out onto a terrace; ideal for alfresco dining.

The triple aspect sitting room measures in excess of 24ft in
length and has a multi-fuel burning stove set on a slate hearth.
In addition, on the ground floor there is a library, office/study, cloakroom and utility room which is equipped with a range of base and wall units, full height cupboards and airing cupboard, sink and travertine flooring. There is a fantastic cinema on the lower ground floor that has been created by the current owners and a high spec audio visual system available by separate
negotiation. This room would also be ideal as a gym. Next to this versatile space is an office which houses the main cabling and electronics for this sophisticated property.

Rising to the first floor, there are five double bedrooms, two with en suite facilities a family bathroom with the majority of sanitary ware by Villeroy & Boch. The dual aspect master bedroom has an impressive dressing room with quality walnut shelving and central seating area which in turn which leads through into the en suite shower room with a Matki double shower cubicle and twin wash hand basins.


The property is approached through cast iron gates and has a large parking area and double garage. The front and rear gardens are extremely well maintained, well bordered and are awash with a variety of specimen plants and shrubs. The rear garden is mostly laid to lawn and is bordered by mature hedging with a generous timber summer house with paved patio area and raised beds for vegetables. In all the grounds extends to about 0.75 acre.

Square Footage: 4,556 sq ft

Newquay, joining the A39. At the next roundabout, follow the A392 towards Newquay. Continue past Atlantic Reach, and then turn right at the crossroads in Whitecross. Continue past the Whiteacres holiday park and follow the road down the hill into the valley. Ambleside Manor is near the bottom of the hill on the right hand side.
