This distinctively styled three bedroom barn conversion is situated within a unique development

Normans Retreat is an individual two storey barn conversion located in an elevated position above the stunning beach of Mawgan Porth, part of a small courtyard development of uniquely styled properties converted in 2004 by Acorn Developers.


The reverse styled accommodation has three ground floor double bedrooms, one of which has a built in cupboard and stylish en-suite shower room as well as a family bathroom with a white suite that includes a bath and shower over. A staircase rises to the first floor and into the open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room. The comfortable L shaped accommodation is well planned, with doors to the courtyard garden leading from the living space. There is a rough cast feature wall with a slate hearth and the accommodation flows into the dining and kitchen area. With ample space for a dining table and chairs, there is a step up to the kitchen area that incorporates a modern fitted kitchen with a range of cream coloured floor and wall cabinets and drawers complimented by a contrasting work surface, tiled splashback and tiled floor. Integral features include a dishwasher, an electric oven and four ring gas hob, a fridge, freezer and ceramic sink.


The property has wooden double glazed windows and doors and glimpses of the sea from the westerly front facing elevation. Outside, the property has its own good size rear courtyard patio/decking area area at first floor level. This is fully enclosed with a fenced boundary and some established shrubs that backs onto an open field, a gate giving access around the side of the development to the front. Some steps lead down to another enclosed area with ample space for a large storage shed. To the front is a small area belonging to the property, part of the attractive central courtyard communal space. Across the driveway is a carport with covered parking for one vehicle and space for a second. Additionally there is a communal recreational area with some sea views, a great spot for games or BBQ’s. Services to the property include mains water, electricity, gas and drainage.


Mawgan Porth is a very popular and sought after location in North Cornwall, benefiting from a magnificent sandy beach which is popular with surfers and favoured by bathers alike. Fine dining is available locally at the award winning Scarlets Hotel and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen at nearby Watergate Bay, among other highly renowned restaurants and eateries. The Bay provides a range of amenities including a local store, cafes, public house, surf school, gift shops and excellent transport links with Newquay Airport approximately 2 miles distant.
