A beautifully restored barn surrounded by countryside yet just a short drive from the beautiful long sandy beaches of the north Cornish coast, Applestore near Rock is a property with much character.
With original beams and exposed granite walls, this traditionally decorated and furnished home-from-home provides a most comfortable, peaceful sanctuary to return to after long days out and about.
On the ground floor, the cosy sitting room with multi-fuel burner leads straight into the country-style kitchen - and also has doors which open up on to a sunny south-facing patio, the perfect spot for a summer barbecue.
From the kitchen, another door leads out to an enclosed, lawned garden where children can play safely.
Upstairs are two comfortable bedrooms as well as a family bathroom.
The nearby village of Rock is a very desirable and popular holiday destination, and is known for its excellent windsurfing and sailing conditions as well as a long stretch of sand at low tide.
The much-loved harbour town of Padstow sits just across the estuary, and has quite a reputation for good food - thanks in part to the likes of Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth, both of whom have restaurants there.
Walk in ITV’s Doc Martin’s shoes with a visit to the characteristically Cornish fishing village of Port Isaac, just a short drive away – or get on your bike and enjoy a day out on the traffic-free Camel Trail which follows the estuary from Wadebridge in to Padstow.
