This is a unique opportunity to purchase two detached residential properties close to the beaches of Newquay, affording 9.7 acres of flat pastureland and gardens. If you're looking for a multi-generational property for extended family, or a home with letting income, this would certainly be worth considering.

Each home has its own designated parking area on a large drive offering parking for 5 or more cars and an electric car charger. While the two properties share this access, they are otherwise well separated from each other with their own gardens and boundaries.

Cogdat Cottage is fenced from the parking area and a gate leads into its gardens. Originally built in the 1700s, the cottage is a Grade II Listed property, formerly two workman's cottages. In their time at the property, the current owners have converted it from a derelict building to a cosy and characterful family home. The addition of the extension 15 years ago, has increased the living area considerably giving a new owner the potential to create a multi-generational living space.

Entrance to the house is gained via a part glazed front door leading into the farmhouse style kitchen with electric “Leisure” range cooker, bespoke wooden units with a traditional Belfast Sink and plenty of additional inbuilt storage. This room also provides a great space for family dining.

Adjacent to the kitchen, the snug retains much charm and character and has many interesting period features including exposed beams, a fully serviced woodburning stove and a window seat providing a great spot for relaxing with a book.

From the kitchen, a hallway leads into the extension and all other principal rooms on this floor. There is a handy utility room and WC with fitted wall cupboards, space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer; a light and airy living room and a double bedroom with ensuite shower room and a built in, 4-person sauna. Upstairs from this bedroom is a further converted loft room with limited head height; currently set up with a double bed at one end and an office at the other.

Stairs from the kitchen take you up to two further double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, and a good size family bathroom with a large, two-person bath.

The garden begins with a spacious and well-established lawned area with multiple fruit trees and extensive planting. Currently used to house chickens and hand reared ducks, this garden would give any potential buyer the chance to live the “good life”. As you walk through the garden, the space opens into extensive and level paddocks that would be ideal for equestrian use. There is a field shelter on skids that will be remaining, as well as a large poly tunnel and useful storage sheds.

The second property was converted in 2016/17 from former outbuildings. A high quality build, the property is now a very well regarded, three bedroom holiday home. An open plan kitchen/dining/living room provides a comfortable living space with a wood burning stove as a focal point. French doors open out to a private garden and patio. The kitchen has a range of shaker style cabinets with a granite worktop and includes an integral dishwasher, oven and microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and a gas hob. There are two ground floor bedrooms, a double and a twin and a wet room with a walk in shower. An attractive oak staircase leads up to a landing which leads into a large double master bedroom.

Outside, the property has a lawned garden which is fully fenced. There is a good sized patio for al-fresco dining and entertaining.

The grounds total 9.7 acres and have gated access from the road. The land is divided into four paddocks all of which are predominantly level.


Mains electricity, oil fired central heating, mains water and private drainage.


The property is located on a quiet country lane in a small hamlet which is surrounded by countryside offering peaceful country walks on the doorstep. The small residential hamlet of Mountjoy is approximately 1 mile from Quintrell Downs which has a number of public houses, a spar and post office and a train station. More comprehensive shopping and educational facilities will be found at Newquay (4 miles) and the Cathedral city of Truro (14 miles). The north coast is famed for its excellent sandy beaches and within easy reach of the property there are several, including Fistral and Watergate, popular with water sports enthusiasts, and Porth, Crantock and Holywell Bay which tend to be preferred by families. The coastal path offers superb walking and the quiet country lanes are very popular with horse riders.
