Introduction - Near the north Cornish coast, the property is approached via an attractive tree-lined drive which opens to a courtyard containing the Grade II Listed farmhouse and five holiday cottages. The surrounding gardens and grounds are well-maintained and the site is bounded by mature trees creating a peaceful and sheltered location. The established self-catering business has been running for in excess of 18 years and has a high level of repeat business. There is potential for further development of outbuildings on site subject to obtaining the usual consents.

Situation - Located off a country lane in a peaceful and rural part of North Cornwall, the property is well situated for exploring the surrounding areas.

The nearest beach on the rugged and picturesque North Cornish coast is Crackington Haven (6 miles) where you can join the South West Coast Path, the UK's longest National Trail and the A39 (2 miles) provides easy access to the popular destinations of Bude with its renowned sandy beaches, Tintagel, Port Isaac and Padstow. On nearby Bodmin Moor, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you can enjoy the wild landscape and heather covered upland granite moorland and tackle Cornwall's two highest peaks, Rough Tor and the slightly taller Brown Willy.

For day to day facilities there is a Post Office/general store at Wainhouse Corner (3 miles). For a wider range of facilities the coastal resort of Bude (10 miles) has a variety of shops together with schools, supermarkets, doctors, dentists and vets. Launceston (12 miles) also has access to the A30 trunk road which connects the cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter. At Exeter there is a superb range of shopping facilities including department stores, a mainline railway station serving London Paddington, an international airport and access to the M5 motorway network.

Farmhouse - The farmhouse is Grade II Listed and is believed to have been built around the mid-17th Century. A charming property, it is full of character and period features. From the front porch the front door leads into the sitting/dining room with exposed beams, slate flagstone floor and two inglenook fireplaces (one with wood burner). Steps lead down to the kitchen/breakfast room which also has a slate flagstone floor and exposed beams. This room overlooks the garden to the rear and side. There is an extensive range of oak cupboards with granite worktops, butler sink, space for appliances and built in wall cupboards. A lovely old wooden door leads to the utility room and garden beyond.

Stairs from the kitchen lead to the first floor. The landing is part panelled and has many exposed beams. There is a cupboard housing the hot water tank and a room with a WC and sink (previously the bathroom) which is used for storage. The master bedroom has a window to the front, exposed beams and a built in wardrobe. Bedroom 2 also overlooks the front and has exposed beams, a built in cupboard and a charming old stone fireplace. Bedroom 3 has a window to the side, exposed beams and built in cupboards. Family bathroom with bath and shower over, WC, sink, window to rear. Please note that the accommodation on the first floor is in the eaves so in parts the ceiling height is reduced.

To the rear is a private garden with patio, mature planting and lawn. The garden wraps around the side of the farmhouse to a greenhouse. There is parking to the front and a double garage to the side.

Office - In the farmhouse garden is a separate, single storey building with a vaulted ceiling currently used as an office. Open plan L-shaped room with plumbing in situ for a kitchen, windows overlooking the garden and a shower room with sink, WC and shower.

The Business - The current owners have run the self-catering holiday cottage business for in excess of 18 years. During this period they have continuously updated and renovated the cottages and have built up a loyal customer base. The business is run to suit their lifestyle and they trade below the VAT threshold. Accounts can be made available to prospective purchasers following
a viewing.

The Holiday Cottages - The five holiday cottages have been converted from 18th Century farm buildings and offer characterful, well-presented self-catering holiday accommodation. All the cottages are rated 4* by Visit England and have open fires and exposed beams. There is plenty of parking and guests are welcome to use the playing field, copse and the two BBQ areas.

A new owner may wish to investigate alternative uses for these buildings (subject to obtaining the relevant consents).
To the side of the farmhouse is a garage, an open fronted building which also contains the private water supply processing plant.
