The Waggon House is at Pennant Farm. You turn off the lane just after Endellion Church to go down a drive. From this, you look along the dramatic coast of North Cornwall, and over the lovely village of Port Isaac. This is one of the most popular holiday areas of Cornwall, and the views help explain why this is and why it is so often used for films and TV shows, including ‘Doc Martin’. Close by are cliffs, walks, small beaches or larger sandy beaches such as Polzeath. There are pubs, restaurants and lots to do. However at Pennant Farm, you are surrounded by fields and have the best of all worlds. Pennant is a traditional mixed farm and still occupied by the family that has lived there for generations. The modern farm buildings are some way from and separate from the old stone buildings.
The Waggon House was built alongside a fine two storey barn built for grain above and stock below. This double hipped building is of exceptional quality, has fine ashlar granite blocks to the south with good quoins, brick soldier arches and was probably built towards the end of the eighteenth century. Alongside this was built, as its name suggests, a large long open shed for carts and large waggons which was then extended further to the rear. Beyond this, was a stone barn for horses. The whole makes a large, good looking and interesting house, and the surroundings live up to it. The site is ancient, but in the 18th century the buildings were spread round the farmyard. This is itself charming and ensures privacy. This is a comfortable house in a popular part of Cornwall.
The Waggon House was renovated by experienced designers and is large and spacious. The layout is based around the large main kitchen/ family room, which has a long wall of windows recessed behind the granite pillars outside. The ceiling stretches right up past timber beams to the corners of the roof. This room has TV with DVD, FreeView and CD player. There is a table in the window and kitchen with electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and washer/drier. Off the kitchen are the utility room, with access to the rear garden, a downstairs bathroom with shower over bath, two bedrooms each with twin beds and views over fields. The third, master bedroom has its own bathroom. The downstairs bathroom, utility, and one of the twin bedrooms are on a slightly lower level and, therefore, there are a few steps down into each of those rooms.
The open plan stairs wind up the side of the main room to the first floor sitting room which has TV with FreeView and video. The sofa can be converted to a double bed. Oil fired central heating. An irregular set of old stone steps goes outside up to the sitting room.
Outside, there is plenty of parking. The garden is not large, but is enclosed, has a barbecue and there is plenty of space around the house and on the farm for children to play, wander or bike. Do remember though that it is a working farm. Garden furniture. There is a small pond about thirty yards from the house. Most of the house is on a single floor and therefore suitable for those less able to climb stairs.n
