Country houses for sale

A picture-perfect Cornish Cottage that is the ultimate blend of cosy and cute

Brooklands is a romantic stone cottage, situated in a quiet hamlet, yet still within easy reach of all the charms of North Cornwall.

Just over half an hour’s drive from the surfers’ (and socialites’) paradise that is Polzeath lies this traditional stone-built house, which is currently on the market via JB Estates with a guide price of £750,000.

Set in the hamlet of Withiel, which is home to a sculpture garden, Brooklands has four bedrooms and far-reaching views across a pond and open countryside.

This isn’t a project that requires deep pockets and months of agony waiting on builders to finish the works, unless there are aspirations to increase the footprint of the house.

As it stands, the house has plenty of charming features including exposed wooden beams, a fireplace and an Aga. It’s unlisted and comes with a single garage, but any such project would, nevertheless, have to go through the usual planning process.

Brooklands is within an easy distance of the market town of Wadebridge and, for those into cycling and walking, the Camel Trail, a 12-mile multi-use route that runs from Bodmin to Padstow, is nearby. 

Brooklands is currently on the market via JB Estates with a guide price of £750,000 — see more pictures or enquire with the agent for further details.
