A spacious and versatile detached house, set in a generous elevated plot with spectacular and uninterrupted views over the Camel Estuary.


Menethdowr is set above the iconic harbourside town and working fishing port of Padstow, on the western side of the Camel Estuary in North Cornwall. Padstow is famous as a foodies destination and is home to celebrity chefs including Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth. The town has numerous excellent eateries and is often regarded as one of Cornwall’s best gastronomic destinations, with fabulous fresh seafood landed daily.

The Camel Estuary, sheltered from the Atlantic Ocean by Stepper Point and Trevose Head to the west and Pentire Point to the east, offers numerous sandy beaches and a large area of calm water, with superb bathing, sailing and water skiing. Padstow has a tidal marina and there are deep water and tidal moorings in the Estuary, making it the North Coasts premier destination for watersports enthusiasts.

There are two first rate golf courses in the area including Trevose Golf Club, overlooking Constantine Bay, to the west and St. Enodoc Golf Club to the east in the ever popular waterside resort of Rock, which is accessible by road via Wadebridge, or passenger ferry between Padstow and Rock.

Padstow has an extensive range of boutique shops and galleries, as well as a supermarket, which cater for all day to day needs. The market town of Wadebridge at the top of the Camel Estuary provides a further range of shopping and leisure facilities as well as access to the A39 and Bodmin.

The north coast provides some of the most spectacular and rugged coastal scenery in Cornwall where the Atlantic meets high cliffs and beautiful sandy beaches making it a popular destination for walkers and surfers. The South West Coastal footpath provides many miles of spectacular clifftop walks, whilst the Camel Trail, a disused railway line which runs between Bodmin Moor and Padstow, is popular with both walkers and cyclists.

Communication links to the area are excellent, with the A30 at Bodmin providing dual carriageway links to Exeter and the M5 Motorway network. There is a mainline train station at Bodmin Parkway with regular links to London Paddington, whilst Cornwall Airport at Newquay provides several daily flights to London Heathrow, Southend and other UK and International airports.


Originally constructed in 1969, Menethdowr has been in the same family's ownership for over 50 years and is currently used as a cherished holiday home and holiday let. Set in just over half an acre, the house enjoys elevated east facing views, taking in a large expanse of the Camel Estuary, including the village of Rock, Porthilly beach and Cant Hill.

The accommodation, which is arranged over two floors, provides a spacious and versatile layout, with many of the principal rooms enjoying the wonderful estuary views. From the parking area to the side of the house, where there is also a detached garage and storage building, there is an entrance lobby, which leads into the kitchen and dining area. From here there is access to a generous reception hall, with built in storage cupboards and a secondary entrance with steps leading down to the gardens.

There is a dual aspect reception room, which enjoys views to the south and east, over the property's garden and to the Estuary. There are two bedrooms on this level and a shower room. The lower ground floor offers two further bedrooms, both of which are ensuite and there is a hallway with further storage area and door to the garden.

Without question, one of the key features of this property is its extensive gardens, which offer plenty of space and views, with potential to either extend the existing building, or explore the possibility of creating an additional dwelling within the garden, subject to the necessary consents.

There is a tarmacadam driveway and parking area on the north side of the building, and a raised south facing terrace on the south side, providing a wonderful space for outdoor entertaining and alfresco dining.
