The property

This beautiful country house just outside St Kew is in a most glorious setting, amid 15 acres of formal and woodland grounds, surrounded by farmland deep in the Cornish countryside, yet only 2 miles from the coast. Treharrock Manor boasts rooms of grand proportions and comes complete with its own tennis court. This gracious manor house offers a warm and characterful retreat perfect for exclusive use for family get togethers and groups of friends. On the site of an ancient manor house, the present house was built in 1815 and is full of period features and furniture, such as original fireplaces, gun racks and meat hooks in the kitchen and a sweeping staircase leading to a balustraded upper hall.

Treharrock Manor is tucked away on the south facing slope of its own sheltered valley at the end of a 1/4 mile (bumpy) drive near the village of St Kew and close to the shores of Polzeath, Rock and Padstow. Drive to Port Isaac, otherwise known to ITV 'Doc Martin' series fans as 'Portwenn' in around 5 minutes. This narrow cove is very safe for children offering a small sandy beach with rock pools to explore at low tide with picturesque fishing boats bringing their daily catches of local crab and lobster. For a great meal of fresh fish landed at Port Isaac's harbour is Nathan Outlaws 2-Michelin Starred flagship 'Restaurant Nathan Outlaw' which focuses on the simple delights of British seafood cookery and somehow those panoramic views out to sea from the tables add to the flavour.

This is a highly desirable destination for families and groups seeking a timeless and restful base that is convenient for exploring the picturesque fishing villages, hidden coves, tall cliffs and expansive golden beaches of the North Cornish coastline. Nearby Rock is the choice for water sports enthusiasts, attracting yachtsmen, water skiers and anglers to its safe tidal lagoon. The beautiful beach here stretches along the River Camel around to Daymer Bay (great for dog walkers) and has a long fine sandy beach, fringed with dunes on which to picnic, play or rest. St Kew is a quaint and unspoilt village, where peace and quiet are assured. The popular traditional village pub, the St Kew Inn serves great food and has a glorious open fireplace where the logs crackle during cold wintry days. Polzeath, just 6 miles away, is favoured among families drawn to rolling surf, long tracts of sandy beach and fascinating rock pools. There are many opportunities for outdoor pursuits with the first-class 18 hole links golf course at St Enodoc, cycle hire at The Camel Trail and superb walks along coastal and inland footpaths.

Inside you will find a spacious sitting room complete with open fire and baby grand piano, a huge well equipped kitchen, TV room, snug, dining room which can accommodate 20 guests on 2 dining tables, 11 comfortable bedrooms and plenty of rooms with washing facilities. Please see accommodation section for full list of rooms. Guests will love the basement with table tennis and large billiards table. The house is situated overlooking a private valley surrounded by lawns and sheltered from the coastal winds by mature woodland. The garden features a summerhouse, a stream with pond, bluebell woods and an all-weather tennis court. There is ample easy parking for all guests.

For larger parties Treharrack Manor can be booked in conjunction with Treharrock Lodge (property reference 6166) to accommodate a total of 26 guests.

About the location

ST KEW

Port Isaac 4 miles ; Wadebridge 4 miles ; Bodmin 10 miles

Not far from Port Isaac, St Kew is a small village – the first recorded in Cornwall! - on the north Cornish coast. The village church dates from the fifteenth century and is home to some remarkable stained glass windows. Also in St Kew is a traditional village pub and a golf course, and there is a donkey sanctuary at St Kew Highway. The St Kew Inn also dates from the fifteenth century, and boasts a lovely open fire in winter and a pretty beer garden for sunshine drinks in the summer. There are some lovely walks in the countryside surrounding St Kew, including a circular route through the river valleys.

Note: Uneven stone steps with no handrail lead down to basement - there is a lock on the door. Stream and pond on-site, children should be supervised. The lane to property is very bumpy and may not be suitable for all cars
