An attractive 4 bedroom farmhouse with flexible accommodation and a well-established, successful holiday letting business close to the North Cornish coast.

Introduction

A fabulous lifestyle opportunity in North Cornwall just 3 miles from the vast sandy beach at Widemouth Bay. The flexible accommodation is set around a courtyard and includes a 4 bedroom period farmhouse, a 2 bedroom residential property and 3 cottages (one with residential permission) generating a useful income.

With planning permission in place to convert a two storey barn into a further residential dwelling, a new owner has the opportunity to reconfigure the site for their own use perhaps multi generational living or creating further holiday letting units.
