Semi-detached character cottage reputed to be the oldest in the hamlet, set in extensive and tranquil gardens within a short walk of the beach.



Porthcothan Mill is a beautiful building, the original water mill reputed to be the oldest building in the hamlet, dating back to 1597. Set at the end of a no-through lane and surrounded by extensive gardens, Porthcothan Mill retains a wealth of character features which must be viewed to be fully appreciated, with views up the valley and pathway leading to the beach.


Internally the cottage offers open plan living on the ground floor, with a sitting room opening to the spacious kitchen/diner. On the first floor are three bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside a detached outbuilding serves as the utility room, with plumbing & power. Subject to the requisite permissions, there is scope to convert this building. The gardens comprise mainly a level lawned garden with a walkway bridge leading to an island bound by the stream which runs to Porthcothan beach. A five bar gate opens to the circular parking area with plenty of room for turning and parking several cars. A truly beautiful position and tranquil environment and an opportunity to purchase this historic building suitable for both permanent or holiday home buyers.
