Porth Nanven House is a stunning property located at the end of a rural lane in the beautiful and magical Cot Valley, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cot Valley is located in the far west of Cornwall between Cape Cornwall and Lands End, the valley stretches down to the sea, nearby is the market town of St Just with a selection of useful independent shops and good pubs.

The larger historic town of Penzance is 10 miles away with a wider range of shops, supermarkets, leisure centre, outdoor lido, pubs and critically acclaimed restaurants. The Scillonian ferry runs from Penzance, or nearby Lands End airport offers regular flights to the stunning Scilly Isles. Porth Nanven House is a beautiful, spacious and luxurious family home, packed with character features, beautiful furnishings, stunning coastal and rural views and located in a magical location; a real home from home.

The newly extended hand made kitchen / diner is well equipped with high quality kitchen equipment and plenty of storage space, there is a new 2 door Aga with two ovens and two hob plates, dishwasher, large sink, good sized fridge / freezer and separate island unit with window seat looking out to sea. There is a spacious dining area with table and chairs for 8 people.

There are two separate sitting rooms, the “winter sitting room” is a cosy room with open fire, sumptuous sofas, flat screen TV and DVD player. The “summer sitting room” is light and airy and benefits from wonderful sea views down the valley.  There is a good storage area at the back of the house for boots and coats with a small downstairs WC. Access to the private garden is through a patio door from the kitchen.

On the first floor are four good sized bedrooms, at the front of the house is a beautifully furnished double bedroom with ensuite with WC and basin. The second bedroom is a twin bedroom with zip link beds, so if required it can be presented as a double.  Between these two bedrooms is a new family bathroom with roll top bath, basin and WC.
