Property of the Day: Lower Hamatethy, Wadebridge, Cornwall

An idyllic granite cottage on the edge of the Cornish moors

THE PROPERTY: This wisteria-clad home has five bedrooms, a detached annexe and 20 acres of land. Its magical south-facing garden includes a timber bridge over a stream dotted with mossy boulders.

THE LOCATION: Lower Hamatethy lies in an ancient wooded valley not far from St Breward, a traditional Cornish village of weathered granite cottages, to the west of Bodmin Moor. Padstow and Rock – homes to the chefs Nathan Outlaw and Rick Stein – are nearby, as is Wadebridge, and you can enjoy an 18-mile cycle route along the River Camel.

THE INTERIOR: The house has flagstone flooring, vaulted ceilings and exposed granite windowsills throughout. As well as an annexe, which could be used as a separate holiday rental, there is a guest wing with two large bedrooms, both en suite. The largest includes a brushed steel roll-top bath and a balcony looking out over the stream and gardens.

WHY WE LOVE IT: As well as the beautiful gardens, the house has access to wonderful walking routes leading to some of Cornwall's most spectacular scenery.
