Located close to and overlooking Porthcothan Bay beach, a large detached 5 bedroom property with excellent coast and sea views, set within circa 3 acres of gardens and land and enjoying a lovely tucked away setting.

The property has been used as a successful holiday let for many years, rented via the boutique letting agency, Beach Retreats. The accommodation of the house works well and is very flexible in its layout. The living accommodation comprises of a very large 24’ x 23’ feature sitting room with log burner and sea views and views across the lower gardens. The 17’ x 14’ double aspect kitchen dining room is an excellent space in which to entertain and cook, whilst also enjoying the sea views or the outlook across the adjacent field. A good-sized conservatory adjoins the sitting room, from which the best sea views in the house can be enjoyed. Beside the kitchen is a utility/boot room and the ground floor is completed by two double bedrooms, as well as a family bathroom. The first floor houses three double bedrooms and a further bathroom. The principal bedroom enjoys double aspects taking in both lovely sea and valley views.

The house is located on a quiet and unmade lane that provides access to just a handful of neighbouring houses, with the same lane also leading to a footpath that descends down through the valley below, to within approximately 250 metres of the entrance to the beach. Its combination of being within a highly sought-after and peaceful coastal location, enjoying good sea views from all principal rooms and outside areas, as well as having spacious accommodation and large gardens with adjacent land is a particularly rare offering to the market.


The house is approached over a driveway that provides parking for several cars, as well as giving access to the garage. Adjacent to the garage is a separate single storey stone outbuilding that is currently used as a wood store. The house sits centrally within its large gardens, with the main area being on the south westerly side of the house and includes an excellent sunken fire-pit. The property includes the adjoining field, on the seaward side of the house, which overall measures approximately 3 acres including the garden. The field is directly accessible from either a pedestrian gate in the garden or via a 5 bar gate off the main road that leads to the beach.


Porthcothan Bay is a very well regarded village, located just under 5 miles to the south of Padstow, on a highly sought-after stretch of the north Cornwall coast, known locally as the Seven Bays. The village is made up of a relatively small number of houses and cottages that are all just moments from the magnificent sandy beach, which is a firm family favourite for many people due to it being slightly smaller in size and also a little quieter in comparison to some of the other beaches in the area.

The Seven Bays area has been one of the most sought-after coastal locations in Cornwall for many years, particularly for those who are wanting more of a coastal lifestyle from where they live or where they holiday as this magnificent part of Cornwall has coastal activities, both off and on the water, as well as amazing lifestyle opportunities in abundance, meaning it quite simply offers something for everyone.
For foodies, Rick Stein has the Cornish Arms pub within the nearby village of St Merryn and his original and most famed Seafood Restaurant is located in Padstow, which is also host to many other well known restaurants including the Michelin starred chef Paul Ainsworth at his flagship restaurant ‘Number 6’. Located between the nearby villages of Constantine Bay and Harlyn Bay is the excellent Pig Hotel, providing fine dining within the most beautiful period building and delightful gardens and grounds.

There are many amazing walks available in the area surrounding The Roundhouse as there are footpaths that lead to both the coast and inland from the village. For the keen golfers, the championship golf courses of Trevose near Padstow and St Enodoc at Rock are a must in North Cornwall. Just outside of Padstow at St Issey is the excellent Trevibban Mill Vineyard and further upstream of the Camel Estuary there is the internationally acclaimed Camel Valley Vineyard. Wadebridge is also within easy reach, which offers a wide range of interesting boutique shops. The Cornwall Airport near Newquay is also under 6 miles from the property, providing regular flights to numerous airports across the country, as well as other locations around Europe.
