Originally three separate properties, The Rockies is a delightful whitewashed cottage built of stone under a slate roof that retains many of its original features including wood floors and exposed beamed ceilings. The kitchen/dining room/family room is the hub of the house, while accommodation upstairs comprises three bedrooms.

The house has double glazing and oil fired central heating throughout, and also enjoys off-street parking for two cars.

The Rockies sits in a unique position and enjoys outstanding views over the cove, the surrounding cliffs and out to the sea beyond from virtually every window and outside area.

The pretty Cornish coastal village of Port Gaverne, just a short drive from Port Isaac, is sited on the rugged stretch of North Cornwall coastline that runs between the Camel Estuary at Rock up to the Devon/Cornwall border at Bude. At low tide there is a small, sheltered, sandy beach with an abundance of rock pools which is probably one of the safest beaches in North Cornwall.

The guide price is £695,000. For further information please contact Savills on 01872 243 200 or visit www.savills.co.uk.
