A ten minute lane walk from Millbrook and from the big sandy beach at Whitsand Bay via a cliff path is Tregonhawke Farmhouse, the origins of which go back to the 16th cent.
It is set over two levels and has been a family home for generations surviving much turbulent history.
Enter from the garden through the porch, kicking off your coats and boots as you go into the big fitted farmhouse kitchen with table, chairs and benches in the middle; walk through to the equally big living room with cosy open fire and then across a slate-floored hall to the children’s room with lots of toys.
The children’s room leads through to a double bedroom with door to garden.
At ground level is a shower-room and separate toilet.
Head up the stairs to five more bedrooms – a double with a single, a double, a twin with low door lintel, another twin, and a single – all very individual and prettily done.
Two family bathrooms.
To one side is a very pretty, enclosed garden with large lawn, garden furniture and BBQ.
Mature trees and farmland surround it and about a three minutes walk away there is a coarse fishing lake (carp, tench, roach, rudd, bream and perch – some as large as 25lbs!).
Fishing free for residents.
Absolutely great for large family group or groups of friends.

About the location
Whitsand Bay 1 mile; Plymouth 8 miles.
Set in a bowl of hills at the head of a tidal creek that leads to the Hamoaze, opposite the great naval city of Plymouth, Millbrook is located on the Rame Peninsula, "Cornwall's Forgotten Corner". Bounded by the Lynher and Tamar rivers, the Hamoaze and the sea, the area is deeply rural and designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a good range of shops and pubs, while close by are the pretty coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, from which a ferry will take you to Plymouth. Along the southern edges of the peninsula are miles of beautiful walks with glorious views of Rame Head. Just a mile south of Millbrook lies Whitsand Bay with its miles of uncrowded sandy RNLI patrolled beach and dramatic cliffs. A superb base for discovering the wild side of Cornwall.
Note: Beach parking available in owner's field above Whitsand Bay, by arrangement. 'Day care' for dogs available. Arrival after 4pm. This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £250
