Description This stunning and unique property has a rich history and provides a gorgeous family home with rental income or an investment with existing business generating >80k pa.   Owned by the same family for 20+ years, it's primarily used as an exclusive holiday rental property generating 80k+ pa but with potential for much more. Located in rural North Cornwall but only five minutes from Newquay, North Atlantic Coast and Newquay Airport, with regular flights into major UK cities. Ideal if you want a stunning country retreat but need easy access elsewhere.

. The main house has five-seven bedrooms (split off one end of the building to create additional two bedroom property from the original seven bed house, but can easily be re-integrated). Huge farmhouse kitchen with views across the valley towards Newquay and a gorgeous Aga that heats up the entire property. Two large lounges, with open fires, a utility room, downstairs bathroom and separate toilet. Upstairs, five bedrooms in the main section, including one en suite, and a separate bathroom with walk-in shower.   Adjacent to the main house is the separate property unit with two bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, bathroom and French doors opening out to the front garden. That property has private access through an ancient lych gate and has been rented out for 10+ years.

. To the rear of the house are two studio cottages which were converted from old piggeries in 2005 and have since been rented out. Lovely units with all mod cons and sleeping two people each. They have private access. The rental properties are designed so that the family home retains privacy from any guests staying at the smaller units. The property is located within 10+ acres of private gardens and land, all fenced in and set back from our tiny country lane. Total privacy if required. Within the grounds is a heated swimming pool with summer house, set in the ancient orchard which is beautiful. There are stables, paddocks, ponds, a range of different meadows, a stream and even your own small piece of woodland. It is an absolutely gorgeous location where you can walk and ride within your own land.

. The current owners designed the smaller property units to create rental income without disturbing the main family house - even the windows are positioned in a way that guests can be staying on site but there is complete privacy for the family. Read reviews of the property via 'trip advisor Colan Barton'. Weddings have been hosted at this property and if you really wanted to maximise income then that's a fantastic opportunity as we get many calls every year to host but restrict it to no more than 2/3 pa - none since 2013. The Norman Colan Church is just a stroll away from the property - indeed our old lych gates used to lead direct to the church.

Location The village of Colan is set within easy reach of the North Cornish Coastline. There is a nearby local shop and beyond this, the well known resort of Newquay on the North Atlantic Coast offers a wide range of shops, primary and secondary schooling, sports clubs, leisure facilities, pubs and restaurants. The area is renowned for its golden sandy beaches stretching for some miles either side of Newquay, accessed via the South West Coastal footpath and providing a wide array of swimming and beach activities, famous for its surfing.
