St Illex description


Beautiful views along the Cornish coast greet visitors to this single-storey, light and spacious property. Totally renovated, the property features a split level, open plan living and dining area, each with bi-fold doors opening out onto patio areas, affording stunning sea views. It is tastefully furnished and comfortable all year round with an inglenook fireplace and central heating. The state of the art kitchen is great for catering and cooking the wonderful local fish and seafood. Dog friendly, this is the perfect place from which to explore this unique part of Cornwall.
Standing on the headland above the picturesque village of Port Gaverne, the house is a few steps from the north Cornwall coastal path. The beach at Port Gaverne and the Port Gavern hotel and pub are a 5-6 minute walk away. Close by is the fishing village of Port Isaac, with its huddle of slate houses and narrow alleyways. Famous now as the setting for the TV series ‘Doc Martin’, Port Isaac is a working fishing village with shops, bars and several top quality restaurants, including two run by Michelin star chef Nathan Outlaw.
This is an ideal spot for those who enjoy coastal walks, bird watching, golf, fishing, surfing, cycling or just lazing on the beach. Polzeath’s famous surf attracts all comers and its glorious sandy beach is just a short drive away. The cliffs, caves and rock pools are a children’s paradise. Water sports can be enjoyed just a few minutes drive away at Rock, from where a passenger ferry crosses the Camel Estuary to the town of Padstow and Rick Stein’s famous seafood restaurant and cookery school. Daymer Bay has another glorious sandy beach, and the golf course at St Enedoc is open to the public. John Betjeman, the late Poet Laureate, is buried at St Endeoc Church, with its twisted spire. Nearby Wadebridge hosts one end of the Camel Trail, with a 5-mile dedicated cycle ride to Padstow on the old railway track, alongside the picturesque Camel Estuary. To the north stands Tintagel’s medieval castle and the quaint fishing village of Boscastle, with Crackington Haven and Bude a little further on. Inland lies Jamaica Inn and Bodmin Moor, the setting for the ’Poldark’ stories. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 0.5 miles.
