Located in the quiet rural hamlet of Rosecare, Bert's Cottage is a truly picturesque traditional Cornish cob cottage.  The front of the cottage is surrounded by a charming low stone wall enclosing a slate-paved courtyard garden and looks towards the village green. To the rear, the cottage is encircled by a country garden with a large patio area with comfortable garden furniture with views to the open fields and the sea beyond.  This 16th Century Grade II listed cottage offers the ultimate country retreat removed from all distractions. 


Sensitively updated, it retains all of its period features, including a vast inglenook granite fireplace with original slate floors and beams throughout.  The interior offers a pleasing blend of contemporary luxury thoughtfully furnished with vintage style Peony & Sage fabrics and White Company linen, the interior taking inspiration from the surrounding nature to inspire the feeling of a true country haven.


Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a twin bedroom.  All bedrooms offer a peaceful luxurious ambience with views over the surrounding countryside and the bedroom rear enjoying far reaching views over the fields to the sea beyond.  Note that the staircase is both steep and narrow and the property is not suitable for the elderly or infirm and care should be taken with younger children.


The ground floor bathroom is a space of true contemporary comfort with underfloor heating and luxurious fittings - a perfect place for jumping straight in the shower after a day at the beach or relaxing with a long hot soak in the bath surrounded by candles.


Bert’s has a large private garden surrounding the cottage so there is plenty for children to explore outside. Alternatively they can take a picnic onto the village green just a few steps from the cottage where they can also find trees to climb. Sunbathing, barbecues and sundowners on the terrace looking out across the fields down to the sea are always a must.


Explore the surrounding countryside right from the door with a walk across the fields and through a wooded valley down to Crackington Haven Beach.  Fish and chips at the Coombe Barton pub watching the sun set or a barbecue on the beach. There are also two excellent beach cafes to either eat in or take your picnic to the beach.  The list of outdoor activities is endless in this area of North Cornwall.  From Padstow to Port Issac or Boscastle to Bude.  You can visit King Arthur’s castle at Tintagel, walk the moors that inspired Daphne du Maurier at Bodmin or simply snuggle by the fire in the evening and play board games and read.  Do as little or as much as you like but you will always feel a sense of peace at Bert’s.


There is parking for one car at the house and other cars are free to park on the village green.  The property is equipped with washer/dryer in the boot room.  The kitchen has traditional espresso machine, microwave, fridge freezer.  There is underfloor heating in the kitchen and bathroom and the main areas are heated by  electric radiators.  There is a log-burner in sitting room.
