A superb Grade II* Listed country manor house, with 14th and 18th Century origins, that has been restored to exacting standards. The property is set in approx 3.7-acres of mature grounds including a separate paddock opposite. Trebrea Lodge offers a wealth of period features and commands glorious sea and coastal views from the house and gardens across open countryside towards St Materiana’s Church.

AGENTS NOTES, LOT 2: An unconverted detached annexe and studio, both with sea views, gardens and parking, are also set within the grounds with separate access, offering development potential and are available via separate negotiation.

• Exceptional entertaining spaces with two ground floor reception rooms and a first-floor drawing room all with open fireplaces.

• Large contemporary kitchen / dining room with sea views and access to the garden.

• Four exquisitely appointed bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms.

• Delightful and mature landscaped gardens surround the property with an orchard, woodland, and terraced lawns at the rear and an enclosed sea facing paddock opposite that protects the views in perpetuity.

• In all approx. 3,391 sq. ft (315 sq.m.)

Grand and distinguished, this well-appointed and architecturally important Grade II* listed Georgian country house is arranged over three floors. The elegant interiors blend seamlessly with original period details including original slate floors, high ceilings with intricate cornicing, large sash windows with wooden shutters and original fireplaces.

Trebrea Lodge is located about 1-mile inland from the North Cornwall coast. Steeped in myth and legend, nearby Tintagel is most famous for its 12th Century castle ruins rumoured to be the historic residence of King Arthur and his round table. Stroll along this fabled stretch of coastline and down to Merlin’s Cave or soak up the natural beauty of the headlands, where the cliffs team with bird life and you often see seals playing in the waters. Several beaches, including nearby Trebarwith Strand and Bossiney Cove, are within easy reach and surfing is the main attraction for those who love the water. Tintagel has several pubs and restaurants, and the Old Post Office (National Trust) is a must.

For the energetic, the SW Coast Path passes through the village and winds its way along the cliffs and down to the water’s edge through dramatic countryside. Head 2.5 miles north along the path to the beautiful village of Boscastle with its quaint quay and village pubs. Further afield are the surfing meccas of Polzeath, Newquay and Bude, and the sheltered harbour of Padstow and the tidal waters of the Camel Estuary are within a 40-minute drive.

There are several excellent golf courses within easy reach, and many world class gardens are to be found in the immediate area. There are good road links to the motorway system via the A38/A30. Railway links to London, Paddington, can be made via the fast train from Exeter St Davids and there are flights to London and other destinations from Newquay International Airport.

Trebrea Lodge lies in beautiful and mature grounds designed by renowned landscape architect Jinny Blom. Sheltered by established woodland, the gardens have been expertly landscaped and restored to their original splendour.

Set back from a quiet lane, the property is reached through a pair of formal stone piers and wooden gates that open to reveal Trebrea Lodge in all its glory. The formal gated garden at the front with its circular carriage driveway is surrounded by a dry-stone walled garden with a variety of shrubs, trees and topiary yew balls.

A terraced garden rises behind the property up to a woodland and orchard with a sheep field located in the top rear corner, alongside a spring fed stream. The property also encompasses a flat lawned area that would be suitable for a grass tennis court or croquet lawn, if desired. Lower down, with direct access from the kitchen and sitting room there is a sunny and sheltered sunbathing lawn with a gravel patio that is ideal for outdoor dining. Much of the grounds enjoy the spectacular views over the rolling countryside and the sea beyond.

Across the lane, directly in front of the property, a 5-bar gate provides access to an enclosed paddock, which offers extra space and protects the sublime views from the manor house.

Situated at the northern side of the manor house is a North Pavilion, currently used for storage and in need of restoration with potential to offer further accommodation - subject to planning.
