A secluded farmhouse nestled on the wild North Cornish Atlantic coast with a detached barn conversion and access to the South West Coast Path

Gloriously secluded and perched atop a wooded valley, just back from the north Cornish coast you will find Lower Beeny Farm and Beeny Barn.

Not to be confused with Trowan Farm – an equally stunning coastal home also tucked away in the south west with a similar aerial view – Beeny Farmhouse is located near the fishing port of Boscastle on the north Cornish coast.

Appearing on the market for the first time in 26 years, the property and its adjoining outbuildings offer a wonderful opportunity to really immerse yourself in the rural coastal countryside, and will no doubt be particularly lucrative for keen walkers, as access to the southwest coast path accessible on foot from the property.

The Grade II listed four-bed farmhouse is on the market through Lillicrap Chilcott for £1.75million. Included in this sale is a wonderfully presented three bedroom stone barn which offers fantastic guest accommodation or holiday rental potential.

Both properties are surrounded by eleven acres of fields, woodland and a range of agricultural barns including stores, workshops, an L-shaped barn and a large agricultural barn.

Bordering National Trust land and set in an Area of ​​Outstanding Natural Beauty, Beeny Farmhouse is believed to date from the late 16and century at the beginning of the 17and century.

Ivy-entwined granite mullioned windows stand beneath the slate roof, while inside are a host of farmhouse-style period features, including slate floors, exposed beams in many high vaulted ceilings, organic stone walls and beautiful fireplaces.

The kitchen/diner is particularly charming, flanked by a red Aga to one side (which supplies hot water to the property) and a large central island. Having tastefully and sympathetically transformed much of the property over the past few years, the current owners are selling a home that is as timeless as it is in keeping with its rugged and rugged surrounding landscape.

The veranda – accessed from the kitchen – is also particularly pretty with mature vines trailing the ceiling trellises.

The 11 acres of land, fields and woods, plus numerous outbuildings offer enormous potential for buyers looking for their own piece of paradise in one of the most desirable counties in the country.

Lower Beeny Farmhouse is currently on the market through Lillicrap Chilcott for £1.75million – see more photos or ask agent for details.
