This 17th century, thatched, detached, Grade II listed cottage is set just a short distance across fields from the sea and 200 yards from the good food pub in the sleepy Cornish hamlet of Morwenstow. Beautifully restored, the cottage retains much of its ancient charm with low lintels, knobbly walls and beams, creating cosy, all-year-round family accommodation.
On the ground floor is a well-equipped, fitted kitchen with lovely oak worktops, window seat and limestone floor, perfect for creating tasty meals for the family to enjoy in the dining area.
Afterwards, you can relax in the cosy sitting room with inglenook fireplace, low beams and slate floor.
Also on the ground-floor, a smart family bathroom with a handy washer-dryer tucked discreetly away in a cupboard.
Upstairs, two bedrooms, a king size double with wooden beams and a twin with glimpses of the sea, both with wooden floors and scattered rugs.
Watch out for the occasional passing chicken in the peaceful cottage garden surrounding the cottage.
It’s a gentle stroll from the front gate over fields to the Coast Path or you can enjoy a cream tea in the much acclaimed tea rooms in the village.
If you've a head for heights, Cornwall’s highest sea cliffs are within easy walking distance and beach lovers should head for the two magnificent, sandy beaches at Bude, just seven miles away.
This is a gem of a cottage in a splendid location for families wanting to explore this dramatic stretch of the north Cornish coastline.
