Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming cottage in an idyllic rural location, with three bedrooms, a bespoke kitchen and stunning countryside views.


Roskruge Barton Cottage is located on the Lizard and is a short distance from historic Manaccan, a charming village with a thatched pub - the New Inn, restaurant, primary school and a Norman church. Approximately 2 miles away is Helford Village and the south bank of the Helford River. This charming riverside village allows a tranquil pace of life in this unique area of Cornwall. There is a sailing club, the waterside Shipwrights Inn, deep water moorings in the river and in the summer a pedestrian ferry to Helford Passage on the north side of the river.


Located in an idyllic rural position within approximately one mile of Gillan Creek and the sailing waters of the Helford River, this detached cottage commands a tucked away private position at the end of a private lane and boasts splendid countryside views.

Roskruge Barton Cottage has been sympathetically renovated and provides well proportioned characterful living accommodation which is presented to a high standard throughout.

The kitchen is bespoke with cottage style units, wooden countertops, a Belfast sink, an electric cooker set in an inglenook fireplace with oak lintel and has exposed stone walls in part. There are dual aspect views over the gardens to the front and rear of the house, and meadow beyond.

The living/dining room is a bright room with windows and French doors to the front and rear gardens. It is split level, one end has a tiled floor and is currently used as the dining area. The carpeted living area has a fireplace with log burner and slate surround. A door leads through to the utility/shower room with fitted shelving and storage, loft access and a door opening to the side of the property.

On the first floor are three bedrooms, one with triple aspect views over the countryside and gardens and with a built in wardrobe. The two further bedrooms have front garden views and built in storage. Also on the first floor is a family bathroom with a freestanding roll top bath and rear garden views.


The gardens around the house are predominantly laid to lawn with some beds, and are separated from the house by a stone patio. In the most part the gardens are surrounded by low Cornish stone walls; to the rear of the house the lawn slopes up to a low wall and offers fantastic views of the meadow and countryside beyond. There is a parking area set away from the house.


A rarely used public footpath runs through the property's plot. Potential purchasers should also be aware that the neighbouring property has a right of way down the properties lane to gain access into their field which is via a five bar gate to the side of Roskruge Barton Cottage.

Prospective purchasers must also be aware that the property cannot be used as a holiday let or be used to run a business from the premises.
