The perfect isolated escape property located on the Roseland Peninsula set within 8.6 acres.


The Hiding Place is in a glorious, secluded rural location on the edge of its 8.6 acre plot with distant views towards Dodman Point from its highest elevation.

The property is just outside the hamlet of Camels on the Roseland Peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty with access to numerous safe beaches including Carne, Portscatho and Pendower and also the South West Coastal Path. Portloe, less than a mile away, known as the 'jewel in the crown' of the Roseland, has a small fishing harbour, the famous Lugger Hotel and restaurant and The Ship Inn, a lovely local pub serving fresh fish dishes.

Just over a mile away is the historic village of Veryan which has a thriving local community with a post office, village shop, primary school, church and social club.

The cathedral city of Truro is approximately 12 miles away and is the administrative centre of Cornwall, offering a very good range of schooling both state and private, a mainline rail link to London Paddington, an excellent range of national and independent shops, restaurants and bars along with a cinema, museum and a highly regarded theatre (currently under refurbishment). Cornwall Airport (Newquay) provides flights to London as well as to other regional and European destinations.


The Hiding Place is a quite exceptional barn conversion in a glorious rural location on the Roseland Peninsula, completed in July 2019. The attention to detail and selection of materials has created a beautiful home whilst retaining its original heritage. The barn's design has particular focus on enjoying the outside and uses natural finishes throughout including copper, brass, wood, limestone and slate.

The accommodation is single level with views and access to the lovely landscaped garden, creating an internal space that feels completely connected to the outside at all times and flooded with natural light. An entrance hall leads to the open plan kitchen/dining and reception room, with log burner at one end and a bespoke hand-crafted kitchen at the other, with large picture window and French doors to the garden terrace area. From the hall there is a bunk room with two bespoke hand-crafted built-in 4'6" bunk beds with additional single bunk and built-in storage, a family shower room and a master bedroom with French doors onto a private terrace area with outside spa facilities of roll-top bath, shower and hot tub. From the hall there is also access up a step ladder to a den area with window over the end terrace and opening skylights with views across the countryside and to the sea.


The grounds immediately around the property have been beautifully landscaped with a large entertaining terrace accessed from the kitchen/dining reception area, with a fire pit and Argentinian Asado BBQ area off to one side with access to the utility/outside kitchen. The gardens have been beautifully laid out using local materials of wood, slate and granite and raised planters to define the various areas of terrace and garden. At the end of the property, accessed from the bedroom, is the private spa area with outside roll top bath and shower.

From the landscaped gardens there are steps and a path that lead to the large parking area with parking for at least five cars.

In total the grounds extend to approximately 8.6 acres of pasture and are bounded by a combination of Cornish hedges, trees and shrubs.
