A Charming Cornish Cottage! Set within an idyllic setting is this charming cottage boasting a wealth of character and a cosy, versatile living space, enjoying an attractive private garden, roof terrace, stunning views & a gravelled driveway providing ample parking and a small garage. What a sweetie!

This beautifully presented cottage is situated within an idyllic setting enjoying a tranquil position and stunning rural views of farmland within the delightful and undiscovered hamlet of Rose, on the North Cornwall coast. Boasting a deceptively spacious and versatile living space, gravelled driveway providing ample off-road parking for several vehicles and a pretty bee and butterfly friendly garden.

Formerly two dwellings, this quaint and unique cottage has been much improved and lovingly restored to create a wonderful living space suitable for that of a growing family, or those playing host to family and friends, and being a beautifully presented coastal residence equally lends itself to holiday letting too. It’s a perfect retreat whatever the season!

Conveniently placed for exploring the gorgeous wide surfing beaches of the North Cornish Coast including Perranporth, Holywell Bay and Newquay, this delightful cottage has in recent years and continues to be a successful holiday let for the current owners and therefore can be available fully furnished, under separate negotiation, for those wishing to continue along this route. Please enquire for further information.

The living space features a lounge/dining room with a wood burning stove, a fully fitted kitchen with a breakfast bar, a separate utility room and shower room, a snug, a further reception room currently used as a fourth bedroom with its own en-suite and a further shower room.

The first-floor accommodation offers three double bedrooms and a cloakroom. Outside there is a useful store/small garage, which was formerly the garage, parking for several cars, and an enclosed rear garden backing onto the open countryside with lovely views featuring a roof terrace. Delectable!

A few steps and you have arrived in the charming and cosy living space, full of character featuring a beamed ceiling and lovely open fireplace with a wood burner centrally positioned with stone hearth. Imagine sipping cocoa and toasting marshmallows here!

Light beams through from the glazed window to the front, with a pretty window seat beneath, and two sweet glazed windows either side of the chimney breast make this a wonderful space to kick off boots and relax with a glass in hand all year round. There’s plenty of room for your dining table with a television point and wall mounted cupboard housing the modern fuse box and electric meter too.

Straight ahead lies the stunning modern kitchen, a lovely light space where wall and base units are displayed in a stylish high-gloss finish in crisp white to create a cool and contemporary look, offering plenty of storage space for groceries and crockery, with a wood effect worktop complimented by neutral tiling to the walls between the units. To the right is a one and half composite sink drainer unit with chrome fountain mixer tap over inset to the worktop and sitting above the sink, at the rear, is a glazed window where you can gaze out onto the garden whilst washing the dishes.

There is space and plumbing for a dishwasher here too, ideally placed close to the sink. To the far left you’ll find the breakfast bar, where there is space for a couple of bar stools where you can sip coffee enjoying lovely views of the garden through the glazed window into the utility and beyond, with a further glazed window positioned to the side. Cooking facilities include an integral electric oven with an electric ceramic hob and a stainless steel chimney hood above, with space for a low-level fridge, if required, beneath the worktop too. To complete is a tiled floor underfoot for easy maintenance and recessed downlighters.

A few steps to the rear, is a glazed door opening into the utility room. A roomy and versatile space with plenty of natural light shining through from the dual aspect glazed windows to the side and rear and where a stable door to the right leads into the garden, offering the potential to use this as a conservatory room, if desired. Here you’ll find a wood effect worktop to the left with space and plumbing for an automatic washing machine and tumble dryer beneath. Tiled flooring underfoot makes for an easy clean, an ideal place to clean paws of your four-legged friend!

​To the right of the kitchen is a solid wooden door into an inner hallway, ideal for the clothes airer or useful for providing further storage leading to the downstairs shower room. Finished in crisp white to keep it fresh, the modern three-piece suite comprises of a double sized shower cubicle with low-level screen and door with an electric shower, pedestal hand wash basin and low-level W/C. To finish is a chrome heated towel rail to keep towels toasty, complimentary tiling to the floor and walls, an extractor fan and a frosted glazed window to the rear.

Returning to the lounge/dining room, take the solid wooden door to the left and you have arrived in the cosy snug, where a large glazed window allows plenty of natural light to flood this space from the front. A versatile space lending itself to a family room, playroom or study, featuring recessed downlighters, a television point and electric radiator. Opposite the window, to the left corner is a cupboard, handy for storing the vacuum cleaner and more, with a solid wooden door positioned further along providing access into the inner hallway. 

​Step through the solid wooden door into the inner hallway and immediately on the right, facing the front of the cottage is a solid wooden door leading to the storeroom featuring wooden double gates to the front, forming part of the original garage, offering further handy storage space for bins and bikes or where further parking is available for a small car or motorbike.

Adjoining the small store/garage is a solid wooden door into a further reception room, which is currently being used as a double bedroom, making it ideal for guests especially those requiring ground floor accommodation. Light floods through from the Velux skylight above with further features including beams to the ceiling and a television point.

Serving this room is an adjoining en-suite shower room, finished in white with a shower cubicle, an electric shower, pedestal hand wash basin and a low-level W/C. A heated towel rail and non-slip floor nicely finishes things off. From here is a glazed door where you can easily step out into the garden and partake breakfast on the patio, heavenly!

​Working your way back to the inner hallway, take the stairs to the first-floor landing where you’ll find three double bedrooms and an upstairs cloakroom, where a deep sill sits below a glazed letter box window overlooking the garden, perfect for displaying your favourite glassware, with access to the boarded and fully insulated loft providing further storage.

​Immediately on the left is bedroom two, a spacious room featuring lovely beams to the ceiling and a glazed window overlooking the front, with plenty of room for wardrobes to be placed either side of the chimney breast. There is also an electric radiator and television point. Bedroom three can be located to the right of the landing where a glazed window overlooks the rear garden and stunning views of the countryside beyond, also benefitting from lovely features such as a beamed ceiling and a feature display shelf, perfect for books and toiletries.

Recessed downlighters, an electric radiator and television point to the wall to finish. There’s ample space for your bedroom furniture too.

Step outside and enjoy the beautiful landscaped bee and butterfly friendly garden

From the front door step down onto a low maintenance gravelled frontage with parking for two small cars. Double wooden gated doors to the right lead to the small garage/storeroom.

​The gravelled frontage sweeps around to the left of the cottage, where a double five-bar wooden gate opens onto a driveway spanning the depth of the grounds to the garden at the rear, providing off road parking for three cars and access to the rear garden. 

​Midway along the driveway, step up and climb an attractive open-tread spiral staircase and you’ll be pleasantly surprised to arrive on a delightful roof terrace featuring a wooden picket style fence surround, making the most of the stunning rural views. Situated directly above the kitchen, where Astro Turf lays beneath your feet, this is a perfect spot to escape to and relax in the sunshine any season of the year, whilst enjoying the views!

​A few more steps and you have arrived in the rear garden spanning the width of the cottage, generous in size offering a high degree of privacy boasting those lovely rural views beyond the green foliage and established shrubs, fully enclosed with timber panel fencing to the sides. Predominantly laid to lawn, albeit slightly raised, with a railway sleeper surround and a pretty rockery positioned to the rear with gravelled borders and a pathway to the perimeters.

There is a substantial slate patio taking centre stage which makes a lovely feature, nicely nestled between the cottage extensions at the rear where you can take shelter, ideal for your garden furniture and to dine alfresco with family and friends. A beautiful landscaped bee and butterfly friendly garden featuring an array of shrubs and flowers, well stocked and perfectly placed with a hard-standing area for a shed or hot-tub too, if required.

Candices Property Notes

This sweet cottage in a fabulous location oozes a wealth of character and charm. I love the fireplace displaying a multi-fuel burner to keep it cosy during the winter months.

The separate snug is a welcoming space too and the extra bedroom with an en-suite to the ground floor is a bonus making this a lovely space for guests, or relatives struggling with the stairs, so there’s enough space to please everyone!

I think it’s simply gorgeous! Are you tempted?
