Wow, Upton Mill is stunning!
Perched on the north Cornish coast just minutes from dog-friendly Trebarwith Strand and within easy reach of Port Isaac and Padstow, this is a perfect retreat for a group of friends or a family get-together. Behind the traditional facade prepare to be wowed by a striking interior that takes full advantage of the space and location of this impressive barn conversion.
One of three properties at Upton Farm, the first floor New England-styled open plan sitting, kitchen and dining areas with whitewashed beams, wooden floors and eclectic furniture is vast, and will be the focal point for all to gather. The cosy seating-area takes prime position in front of the floor to ceiling windows, affording spectacular views across the lush countryside and the seascape beyond.
Need more of that view, well simply step outside onto the terrific decking-area, fire up the barbecue and enjoy al fresco dining from one of the best seats in the house. For some quieter times, there's a second sitting-room where you can curl up in front of the wood-burner with a glass of wine or a good book. On the first floor is the luxurious fifth bedroom offering more of those views and downstairs the other four individually-styled bedrooms, with their own en suite facilities, ensure everyone can be up and ready together.
If this is your first time to the area or it is a firm family favourite, you have so much to discover on this breathtaking stretch of Cornish coastline.
If a day at the beach is on the agenda then you will be spoilt for choice. Only a five minute drive and you will find yourself at Trebarwith Strand where rock pooling is a must or if the tide is in, then pop over to the surfers' favourite at Polzeath or the family-friendly beaches of Daymer Bay and Rock. Why not lace up your walking boots and stride along the coastal footpath marvelling at the glorious vistas of the Atlantic seascape or head off to discover the villages of Port Isaac, Tintagel and Boscastle, all rich in mythology and seafaring history.
After all that exercise you'll need to re-charge your batteries and, as you are in foodie heaven with celebrity chefs, award-winning pubs and restaurants, great beach huts and tea-rooms galore, re-charge away!
