Delightful character three bedroom detached cottage believed to date back to the 1700’s. Recently extended and extensively improved, this comfortable property also benefits from a detached Shippon with planning consent for conversion to additional one bedroom annexe accommodation.  Gardens bordering open fields to the rear.


Set on the edge of the small village of Whitstone which has its own Post Office/General Stores, Places of Worship and Primary School.  Conveniently located between the North Cornish coastal resort of Bude with surfing at the popular beach of Widemouth Bay, the thriving market town of Holsworthy and the ancient capital of Cornwall Launceston, all about nine miles distant with a wide range of shopping, banking and leisure facilities.


The cottage has many original features including a large open feature fireplace in the dining room with exposed timber beam and clome oven.  Carefully restored to give comfortable accommodation of a high specification, the cottage benefits from oil-fired central heating throughout via an external condensing boiler as well as having a woodburning stove in the sitting room.  It has private drainage via a septic tank and its own Well.  The sunny, well stocked gardens have several seating areas and afford lovely views over adjoining countryside.


All measurements are approximate.  There are numerous power points throughout the property although not individually listed.  None of the fittings or appliances have been tested by ourselves.
