The Old Rectory in St Mewan in Cornwall is an example of a perfectly restored country property in a popular area of the West Country. The accommodation is laid out over two floors and extremely spacious. Original features add charm, including a charming Adam-style fireplace and the fireplace in the dining room is fashioned from an extremely rare form of granite.

The kitchen and conservatory provide good views and access out to the gardens while upstairs the master bedroom is accessed off the mezzanine floor and has a high ceiling and wonderful views over the countryside. There are three further bedrooms, two en suite.

    could any one tell me more about the hauntings ?

  • Nicholas Storey

    I know this former rectory very well and it is a splendid house; also, according to two former rectors, it is haunted by an apparition of a child which crosses a room. Apparently, it is not distressing and they just let it be.
