Spacious and beautifully designed cottage in north Cornwall with a delightful private garden. Perfect for families and an ideal base for food-lovers, walkers, surfers and golfers to enjoy their passions.
Originally the gardener’s house at the Molesworth Manor Estate, this traditional, Cornish, stone cottage is now a very well-equipped modern family home. While there are plenty of period details, the décor is chic and there’s every home comfort. With four bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, a large open-plan living area and a private fenced garden and patio, it’s perfect for a family or group of friends. Surrounded by rolling fields, there are beautiful views to savour, while country walks begin from the door. Meanwhile, beautiful beaches and the charming harbour town of Padstow, renowned for its superb restaurants, are only a 10-minute drive away.

Why we love this

  • Surrounded by countryside, yet just 2 miles from Padstow’s fine dining restaurants
  • Superb views, including sizzling sunsets, from the upstairs viewing area
  • Enjoy country and coastal walks along The Saints Way and the Camel Trail

Exceptional Service

Our award-winning Guest Services team will not only help you find your dream holiday but will support you through every step of your stay.

Step under the granite archway and in through the front door and you’ll soon discover this cottage is spacious and immaculately presented. Handpicked, original artworks work beautifully against the period features of the house which spans three floors, while creature comforts include fast WiFi throughout.

On the ground floor, there is a generously proportioned, open-plan layout, ideal for socialising together. However, the clever design means it is broken up into zones with a double-fronted, wood-burning stove set into a feature fireplace dividing up the lounge and dining areas. The lounge has sofas and armchairs to get cosy on for movie nights on the Smart TV, while the dining table comfortably seats eight.

In the country-style kitchen, you’ll find everything you will need to self-cater with ease including a Rangemaster oven, a microwave, an American style fridge/freezer with ice machine, a toaster, a kettle, a coffee machine and a dishwasher. There is also a downstairs cloakroom with WC.

Upstairs on the first floor is the master bedroom with a super-king-size bed, a Smart TV and an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower and freestanding slipper bath. Opposite the master is another bedroom that has two single beds and an en-suite shower room.

At the top of the stairs that lead up to the second floor there’s a viewing area with full height vaulted window. It’s a superb place to admire the vistas of the surrounding countryside and those spectacular Cornish sunsets.

You’ll also find two more bedrooms, one with a king-size bed and the other with two single beds. Both feature exposed beams and a full height ceiling, as well as an en-suite shower room.

The enclosed, garden has a south-facing patio where you can catch those rays from the comfort of a sun-lounger or cook up a barbecue feast to enjoy alfresco. The lawned area is ideal for lettings kids, or your four-legged friend, run round, while the views of the countryside are simply stunning.

As night falls, light the firepit and gather round for an evening of stargazing with a glass of wine or a mug of hot chocolate in-hand.

There’s also the convenience of an outdoor tap to wash off your wetsuits, boots or mucky pups, as well as an outbuilding with washing machine, tumble dryer and secure storage for bikes, golf clubs or surf boards.

There is a key safe where you can access the key to the property for a self-check-in. The owners have a very small annex in a separate part of the garden, so you may occasionally see them passing through.
