The Old Rectory provides a fine Georgian Rectory with far reaching views towards Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor National Park. The North Cornwall coastline is within 3 miles and the property has excellent access onto the A39 Atlantic Highway to explore the area. The Grade II former rectory is early 19th century with medieval origins. 19th century alterations are believed to be by Sir Gilbert Scott who restored the village church in the 1850s. Adjoining the 4 bedroomed Rectory is a two storey 2 bedroomed self-contained annexe which was previously let out on a holiday letting basis, but could be occupied by family members if required. In the grounds there is a two storey stone built upside down 3 bedroom barn conversion which was used as a holiday letting cottage. There is also a stone built one bedroomed studio cottage of considerable charm which was also let on a holiday letting basis. The gardens and grounds of the Rectory are an integral part of the property and have been well planted with mature specimens and include a walled garden and extend to 2.46 acres.
