Charming property in the countryside near Wadebridge with 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms.

Middle Treneague is an old stone house with idyllic rambling gardens in a hamlet near the historic market town of Wadebridge (five minutes by car or 20 minutes on foot). While parts of the building date from the 17th century, it was extended in the 19th century to become a working farm until the 1950’s. Charming, comfortable and characterful, rather than a pristine modern house, Middle Treneague is surrounded by open farmland and oak woods. It is a peaceful, private and secluded place, lovely in all seasons.

Large gardens surround the house, (perfect for children's games) with terraces on different levels, designed by the writer who lived there in the 1960's. He planted yuccas, fig trees, old roses and a long row of lavender among the ruined walls. We have added a row of small birch trees with white trunks and a grapevine in the greenhouse.

This characterful house and grounds is stunningly beautiful on sunny days during the hot summer weather. On wet Cornish days, (which sometimes occur even in summer) the gas fired central heating quickly warms up the house and the sitting room - the 'White Room' - with its powerful wood burning stove, is an especially cosy place to sit and read. The television is in a small separate room/study known as the 'Monk's Room.'

Middle Treneague is shared by our large family. While the kitchen and bathroom have 'all mod cons,' the house contains antiques, paintings and books and feels more like a home than a commercial let or boutique hotel.

Entering through a hall you come into the dining room, which looks over the back garden from the oldest part of the house. It has beautiful original slate floors and is furnished with a painted french dresser, a Venetian mirror and a round antique wooden table (seats 6). A traditional, farmhouse kitchen leads off this room, (new cooker fridge/freezer, washing machine / tumble drier, dishwasher, microwave) with long wooden table (can seat 8). There are two sitting rooms, the smaller of which, the ‘Monks’ Room’, doubles as a TV room, while the larger one, known as the ‘White Room’, has a wood burning stove, and huge windows looking over the garden. The ground floor has beamed ceilings, slate floors, and simple old pieces of furniture. Of the three double bedrooms upstairs, the first has a king size bed (zip and link), the second a 4’6” bed, and the third has two large single antique cane beds - 3’6”x 7’ each.

There are two bathrooms: a downstairs wet room and an upstairs bathroom with view towards the garden.

There is a small barn (called Owl House) in the grounds of the house - but the properties don't overlook each other. Bicycles can be hired nearby to explore the Camel Trail. The famous town of Padstow - with its many restaurants, and bustling harbour, is forty minutes away by bike, and twenty minutes by car. The sea can be reached in twenty minutes by car, on both sides of the Camel Estuary (For example New Polzeath for surfing, Trevone Bay and Daymer Bay.

Beautiful Rural Retreat - twenty minutes from the Sea near Padstow

By Claire O on 31-Jul-2021

We had a lovely week, the house is so characterful and spacious and clearly loved as a family holiday home. Large gardens to explore and so quiet, yet only a few minutes from Wadebridge which is a lovely town, from there you can cycle the Camel trail. Beaches are a short drive away, and beautiful countryside is on your doorstep. Anne went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. Thank you for a great stay!
