The ultimate Cornwall home? This gorgeous house has a location that’s beyond belief — and a rather enormous price tag to match

With postcard-worthy views that look too good to be true, relaxed, timeless interiors and a private walkway to the beach below, Bishop’s Rock is a rare but exciting opportunity to own your own piece of North Cornwall paradise.

Giving true meaning to the phrase “dream home”, Bishops Rock sits on an ocean-facing site on a stretch of coastline known as Greenway in North Cornwall and is currently up for sale through Savills with an estimated price of £5 million.

Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Bishop’s Rock has been a much loved waterfront home ever since the current seller’s grandparents built it in 1937. details remain intact, including the original doors, oak flooring, and small window frames.

The rest of the interior looks relaxed, casual, with whitewashed beams and tiled or wood flooring in all ground floor reception areas (handy for sandy feet and paws after a day at the beach).

An internal hall (with shower room) leads to a living room with an open slate fireplace and unspoilt sea views. From here you can access the solarium located on the side of the house, which has double doors leading to a terrace facing west. The perfect place for sunset.

The kitchen/dining area has large windows on both walls to maximize the incredible, expansive sea views. Along with a large central granite island that houses the kitchen appliances, there is also an original 1930s butler bell system and double doors that lead from the kitchen to a southeast-facing terrace.

Upstairs are four bright attic bedrooms, each with unrivaled sea views.

The house is located on a large lawn with an ever-changing bay in front of it. This is the same stretch of coast that inspired Poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman to write the poem. Green way:

Tide after tide night and day
Breakers fight the ground
And the rounded surface along the bay
Loyal rocks guarding the stand

From the garden, the land faces the rock and the ownership extends to the mean high tide on the shore (including the path leading to the beach).

Along the Greenway, the coastal path crosses Dymer Bay and Crawls. This long stretch of coastline offers beautiful beaches for surfing and swimming, as well as plenty of rock pools and sheltered swimming areas.

Along the Camel Estuary you will come across The Rock, which can be reached by the beach or the path that passes through the St Enodoc Golf Club (famous for its beautiful undulating course).

Camel Estuary is great for all kinds of water sports, or you can make your way to foodie paradise, Padstow, where you’ll be spoiled for choice from several establishments by Rick Stein, Michelin-starred No. 6 Paul Ainsworth, and plenty of restaurants and shops offering fantastic seafood and fresh local produce.

Near Harlyn Bay, DuchyGrub and The Pig are not to be missed, as is Fish Kitchen Nathan Outlaw in Port Isaac.

Sea views, world class food and some of the best beaches in the country are literally on the doorstep of the Bishops Rock Hotel. This is a truly enticing offer for buyers dreaming of a piece of Cornwall to call their own.

Bishops Rock is currently being sold through Savills for an estimated £5 million – see more photos or ask an agent for more information.
