Property description

A renovated listed former Water Mill in near perfect setting. 3 Bedrooms, bathroom, lounge, dining hall, kitchen/breakfast room, gardens, pasture paddocks, no near neighbours, single bank fishing, 3.43 acres


A stunning secluded situation on the edge of the small hamlet of Canworthy Water. The village of Wainhouse Corner is some 3 miles distant with its post office / general store catering for day to day needs, garage, a well respected public house and easy access to the A39, the Atlantic Highway. The Atlantic Highway allows access to the coastal resort of Bude, some 8 miles to the north with an extensive range of shopping facilities including supermarkets, doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeries together with extensive sandy beaches, cliff land walks and testing 18 hole links golf courses.

The former market town of Launceston, known as the Gateway to Cornwall, is some 7.5 miles from the property with its 24 hour supermarket, doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeries, a fully equipped leisure centre, testing 18 hole golf courses and numerous sport and social clubs. The majestic north Cornish coast is found at the picturesque village of Crackington Haven some 6.5 miles from the property with access to the south west coastal path and beautiful sheltered part sand / part stone pebbled beach. The A39 allows easy access to the south to the market town of Wadebridge which sits astride the River Camel with its famous cycle path linking to the picturesque village of Padstow.

At Launceston there is access to the A30 trunk road which links the cathedral cities of Exeter and Truro and at Exeter there is access to the M5 network, a main line railway station serving London Paddington and a well respected international airport.


The property is a most impressive Grade II Listed former water mill having been completely renovated by the current vendors over their ownership in the last 18 years to provide a most appealing property in todays market. The property has been successfully rented out as a holiday let for the last few years () and would make a superb family home set within its own grounds and combining modern amenities such as wooden double glazed windows, mains electricity, exposed ceiling beams and renovated workings of the former mill. The total seclusion of the property and its adjoining pasture paddocks, which lead to the banks of the River Ottery with single bank fishing, means the agents have no hesitation in recommending early inspection of the property to fully appreciate its unique setting.
