Description

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

Middle Treneague is an old stone house with large 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.

Extensive 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.

Lovely house, in a peaceful position, but close to a lot of places of interest

By Naomi Norman on 25-Sep-2022

The house is very homely and comfortable. We especially appreciated the log fire, the separate snug with TV, the kitchen well-stocked with pots, pans, plates, etc., the very comfy beds, and the enclosed garden for the dog. We also loved the peace and quiet. Despite being rural, though, it is possible to stroll or cycle into Wadebridge for provisions. And the house is perfectly positioned for lots of touristy activities, like walking/cycling the Camel Trail, a visit to Padstow for fish and chips, and lots of wonderful beaches. It really is a fabulous place to stay. We will definitely be returning.

Lovely cottage near Wadebridge

By Jenny and Peter on 23-Jul-2022

We loved everything about this cottage. The location, only minutes from Wadebridge with easy access to beaches and walks on both sides of the Camel Estuary and Padstow was ideal. We enjoyed lots of beach days and the bike ride along the Camel Trail as well as trips to Padstow and further afield. The cottage is a charming place to stay with plenty of room for our family of six. We all loved the garden especially the grape vine in the greenhouse. The owner was very helpful and we would love to return. Thank you

Beautiful place to stay

By Phil and Bev Arnold on 30-Jul-2022

We had a lovely time at middle Treneague - great house with rural views and the most beautiful gardens (including vine in greenhouse with delicious grapes). Like staying in a ‘family home’ so very comfortable and relaxing. Loved the quirkiness of an older house. Easy cycle ride into wadebridge and straight onto camel trail. Good and very friendly communication from Anne. Thanks for letting us share your little corner of paradise for a short while. Batteries now recharged!
