A bijou dwelling with enormous potential. In a secluded spot within its own tenement, the views to the coast are outstanding.

The cottage is one of three dwellings in a small, exclusive holiday cottage hamlet in what was once a thriving mining and farming community. Until recently the whole hamlet was owned by the same farming family since the early 1600’s. With the its open plan aspect and natural lighting throughout it would surely make a wonderful place for escaping to the country.

The main building comprises a single room. Immediately adjacent lies another another smaller one room construction which could be easily combined into the main dwelling. Particular features include a splendid example of a traditional granite Cornish inglenook fireplace, containing the original iron fire furniture, and a fine stack. The house is complete with furnishings including four sets of iron bunk-beds – a reminder of just one part of its rich heritage in which it was used rescue training at nearby Commando Ridge.

The immediate area is a walker’s paradise, just a stone’s throw from the coastal footpath and the breathtaking presence of the Gurnard’s Head (Treen Dinas to give it its Cornish name). Inland the moorland tops of the High Country shelter this pastoral sublime.

Overall the cottage is full of potential, and would benefit from some renovation.
