Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This charming 2 double bedroom character cottage enjoys a lovely location in the tiny hamlet of Pencuke, just a couple of miles away from the popular cove at Crackington Haven and access onto the North Cornish coastal path. Within easy reach are the day-to-day amenities at Wainhouse Corner with a shop, pub, petrol filling station and the main A39 provides excellent links, south to Newquay and it's International airport and to the north, the popular resort of Bude and the surfing beach at Widemouth Bay.

Cobble Cottage must be used as a holiday/second home, as it has holiday use consent, but it can be used for 12 months of the year. The current owners have run the property as a successful holiday let, which averages between 18 and 22 weeks let year, which as an investment, compared to bank saving rates, does very well indeed.

The location is a large part of the success, but the character and feel of the cottage makes a big difference, with original slate flooring, exposed beams and floorboards, a superb fireplace, housing a Villager multi-fuel stove, with an original clome oven. The kitchen/breakfast room has a solid wood work-surface, tiled floor, room for dining table and concealed spaces for a washing machine and a dishwasher and the Rangemaster is included in the sale. The lounge benefits from the superb fireplace, which is the real focal point of the accommodation. The stairs lead up to a pretty hallway, the 2 bedrooms have built-in storage and exposed floorboards and views of the distant countryside into the North. Completing the accommodation is the bathroom, with an electric shower over the bath and separate WC.

On top of the multi fired stove is oil fired central heating providing warmth. Most fixtures, fittings and furniture are available via separate negotiation.

Externally there is an attractive paved front courtyard (which has a rarely used pedestrian right for a neighbour) and to the rear, via a short walk around the attached barn is the well enclosed wooded garden area, and parking for two cars. Cobble Cottage needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated, and is an ideal investment or rural get away, with no onward chain.

Mains water and electric, private drainage via a shared septic tank.

For Council Tax Banding please telephone Cornwall Council 0300 1234 100
From Bude proceed south on the A39, passing through the village of Wainhouse Corner. After approximate 1 mile take the right turn signposted Boscastle. Continue on the road taking the first right turn into Pencuke. Cobble Cottage will be found on the left hand side as you enter the hamlet just after the cottage called Pipers.
