Fentafriddle is a truly exceptional and versatile estate providing a variety of potential opportunities, situated in a privileged and rare position. There are five beautifully presented properties located around a central courtyard set in the middle of its own land with dramatic views over the Atlantic Ocean and North Cornish Coast. In addition to the main house, which presently provides an extremely comfortable and stunningly restored five bedroom principle residence, there are three important barn conversions dating back to the 16th century. Refurbished to exacting standards and presently being run as a profitable holiday letting and wedding business, the properties face due west and enjoy stunning sunsets over the Atlantic. They benefit from five star letting status and are immaculately presented. These well restored properties set in extensive grounds with uninterrupted sea views make this a truly individual property. The gardens, grounds and pasture extend to 33 acres in the main lot, ensuring ultimate privacy.
This dramatic stretch of coastline is within easy access of the popular coastal hots spots of Rock, Polzeath and Port Isaac and boasts this stunning unspoilt pocket of the North Cornish Coast. Trebarwith has 800m of sandy beach, a well renowned surfing beach and has easy access to the coast path. There are a number of very good restaurants within close proximity, including Nathan Outlaw’s Michelin ** restaurant in Port Isaac, The Mill House Inn and The Port William Inn just a short walk away at Trebarwith and Trebarwith Strand, amongst many others in Rock and Polzeath.
The property, to be sold as the primary lot, consists of four dwellings (and a studio annexe) centred around a garden and parking area. The property is efficient to heat and run due to ground source heat pumps and a single, private wind turbine located discretely at the rear of the property (lot 2).

The Cornish translation of Ponsanooth is bridge at the stream’ which is perfectly apt for this lovely little two bedroom terraced cottage. The village is a popular location: there’s a micro brewery, very active village hall with cafe, pub, church, chapel, school, pre-school, playing fields and a shop and Post Office which acts as a real village hub. Its a really great example of a unique and thriving Cornish community atmosphere.
The two-bedroom cottage is tucked away off a tiny village back road and radiates real charm and character. Originally one of several Millers’ Cottages the house retains many original features with contemporary stylish modern additions. In the winter you can warm yourself by the cast iron wood burning stove set within a handsome stone built inglenook fireplace. Summertime (and any other) enjoy the larger than average cottage garden whilst listening to the sound of babbling running water via the leat to one side of the garden boundary. Outside there is also a useful shed and timber built log store too.
There are two double bedrooms to the first floor (one with pull down ladder to useful boarded roof space), the larger bedroom features exposed stone wall detail. The ground floor enjoys a good size open plan sitting room with dining space, separate kitchen to the rear and bathroom. Subject to planning permission, it may be possible to build over the kitchen, creating additional bedroom space, as carried-out by the neighbouring cottage.
