The North Cornish Coast of Cornwall is famed for its scenery, rugged beauty, sheer cliffs and breathtaking beaches and the Camel estuary is no exception. Old Barn is set in a picturesque hamlet above the Camel estuary with views over the estuary and surrounding countryside. It is the perfect setting for those looking for utter peace and tranquility, yet sufficiently close to nearby amenities.

Old Barn is ideally situated for those who wish to enjoy the delights of coastal living. All types of water sports are available on the River Camel, water skiing, windsurfing, and sailing, prove to be very popular in both summer and winter. The famous surfing beaches of Newquay, Polzeath and Constantine Bay are only a short drive away. The championship links golf courses of Trevose and St Enodoc are within 5 & 9 miles respectively.

Connections are good with the A30 dual carriageway at Bodmin only 12 miles away which provides access to the national motorway network at Exeter. There is a railway station at Bodmin Parkway which links directly to London Paddington. Newquay Airport is 20 minutes away and offers a number of national and international flights, with flights from London Gatwick to Newquay taking under one hour.


The large cottage garden is mainly set behind the house and incorporates a large spring fed pond. This haven for wildlife provides a beautiful spot to enjoy the surroundings and there is also a summer house for this purpose. The remainder of the garden is lawned and stocked with established trees and willow. At the far end there is a grass track with a gate to the lane, ideal for storing a launch.

A lane with a permissive footpath, and which is owned by Old Barn, leads down about a quarter of a mile to a 5 acre paddock with slipway which abuts the Camel Trail. Here there is a small beach perfect for launching a dinghy at high water as well as a mooring. The ruins of a former boathouse also remain, set back from the water. With direct water frontage on Little Petherick Creek off the Camel Estuary, together with private access to a secluded beach, a private slipway a mooring and 5 acres of land, Old Barn offers an idyllic getaway.
