Chynhalls Farm House is a charming 300 year old, Grade II Listed, Cornish thatched cottage in the beautiful fishing village of Coverack, recently restored into a fine example of an authentic cottage with huge character and boasts an expansive headland garden and an enclosed courtyard garden.

Situated on the serene and unspoilt National Landscape (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) on Coverack headland and looking directly out over the bay to Coverack's famous sandy beach and picturesque fishing harbour, it has stunning 270 degree views of the sea.

The cottage is one of the oldest in the village and was a farm for over three centuries, when the headland was used only for agricultural land and livestock grazing. It has been said that the original footings and key stones were salvaged from a monastery on the headland in the 12th Century which was subsequently torn down and ravaged after the Medieval Inquisition.

With Mears beach practically on your doorstep and only a few minutes' walk to Coverack's main beach and harbour with the local Paris Inn pub, it is the perfect place to stay and soak in the unique and peaceful setting and its spectacular, clear starry nights. The property is a wonderful eclectic mix of traditional and modern, and every divine luxury has been lavished upon.

This gorgeous sanctuary offers a spacious and calming retreat with original features such as ornamental fireplaces, beamed ceilings and traditional thatched roof. Entering via the sunny courtyard, you will be met by the light but cosy living area which leads on to a maze of charming rooms and spaces. The enchanting, sea blue snug offers a hideaway to snuggle down and has wonderful outlooks over Coverack and beyond.

The kitchen, separated from the living area by a marble stoned hall and pantry, is light and airy and everything you'd expect from a traditional cottage kitchen. The pantry has plenty of space - perfect for keeping the champagne cool on the wide, slate shelves. There is a hand-built oak kitchen, with many modern appliances. The traditional Aga (lit from early October to the end of April) and belfast sink are accompanied by the modern Bosch hob and Samsung dual cook oven, along with a Bosch dishwasher, large Bosch family fridge/freezer, Bosch washing machine and Smeg drier.

The long dining-room looks out over the pretty courtyard which is a fabulous sun trap. This high beamed room provides a tranquil space for a sunny breakfast and atmospheric candlelit family dining. There is plenty of additional living space in the conservatory too, which has a sublime view out to sea - it's as perfect for summer evenings as it is for winter days, or to have a little peace and quiet hidden away from the rest of the house.

Wooden decking wraps around the front of the house, facing the outstanding 270 degree panoramic vista of the sea and on to Coverack harbour… perfect for immersing yourself in the sounds of silence and sunshine, and watching the boats sail by. The large open garden really has unrivalled views which is left unfenced to give the true feeling of space, so please do take care with little ones and your dog.

There are four sumptuous bedrooms to choose from, three bedrooms on the first floor with two king-size and one double bed, which all ooze luxury and comfort - there is eclectic mix of antique French beds to Indian decor and Turkish lights, it really is wonderful. The main bedroom has sea views which you will never tire of.

The bedroom on the ground floor has a single bed and a walk in wet-room. The uniquely decorated downstairs bathroom, also on the ground floor, is tiled with little white pebbles from floor to ceiling with a large bath and reclaimed oak vanity worktop.

Perfectly located, you might want to leave your car at the property as the coast path is just outside your front door. Wander down to the beach which is only a five minute walk away or perhaps saunter to the local pub in Coverack which is less than a mile along a footpath. Discover the enchanted woodland, across a little stream and on to the hidden sculpture garden with views out over the sea to Coverack Headland. Coverack village has lots on offer including a sandy beach at low tide, a pub, village shop and most importantly, fish and chips and the famous Roskilly's ice cream.

There is no smoking at this property due to the thatch and the lighting of candles is not permitted. The Aga is lit from early October to the end of April. Please note that due to the rural location of Chynhalls Farm House there are security cameras overlooking the oil tank and access road on the exterior of the property, they do not cover any internal areas of the property.
