Daymer Bay House is a rare example of a substantial Cornish country property with gardens leading down to the sea. The house is built of stone and part slate elevations with white sash windows under a pitched slate roof. There are generous windows throughout which provide lots of natural light and overlook the gardens and Daymer Bay itself.

The drawing room and dining room both have fireplaces and French windows onto the terrace, while the kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with an Aga and also opens directly onto the terrace, which makes summer dining effortless. The ground floor has wooden floors throughout much of its space, and a handy bedroom and bathroom.

The first floor has four bedrooms; the master is en-suite with built-in wardrobes and French windows opening onto a balcony with incredible views over the Bay. Two of the three others are en-suite and a single story side wing has an additional bedroom and shower room.

Outside the gardens comprise open lawns with mature trees, a hard tennis court and a heated pool; other features include a wonderful Holm oak tree on the terrace surrounded by fitted decking and a wooden bench, and the gardens front onto the dunes and beach of Daymer Bay.

Daymer Bay is located at the end of Daymer Lane between Polzeath and Rock in North Cornwall, at the mouth of the Camel Estuary. Padstow is a short trip by boat.
