Romantic ramshackle manor house in Cornwall

Treguddick Manor was built in 1576 by Nicholas Tergoddick, a ‘person of note’ at the time of Queen Elizabeth I. Indeed, it’s believed Queen Elizabeth held court at Treguddick and the Hall bears a large plaster of the Royal Arms of Elizabeth dated 1593. following a fire, parts of the house were remodelled in 1878 and this wonderful historic property is now in need of extensive refurbishment.

The property stands at the head of a wonderful courtyard of stone barns which could either be enjoyed as they are, or converted to non-farming uses. Included in the land is some beautiful undulating pasture interspersed by majestic woodland, parts of which flank a lovely stream valley with a pond.

Period features are peppered throughout the house and include flagstone floors, old Victorian fireplaces and an inscripted moulded granite archway. The kitchen/breakfast room is particularly wonderful, with high ceilings complete with meat hooks, tall windows, the remains of a servants’ staircase and a walk in larder.
