Penrose Cottage is a fine example of a detached traditional cottage situated in an absolutely delightful rural setting close to Ruthernbridge. As can be seen from the photographs the property is ideal for those seeking peace and seclusion and is set in most wonderful landscaped gardens with various outbuildings together with a woodland area, the whole site extending to approximately 2.3 acres. The cottage is approached over a private drive serving just 2 properties, has oil fired central heating and part electric underfloor heating to the utility sunroom and kitchen together with a logburner and multifuel stove within the lounge. Ruthern is a beautiful area being close to the Camel Trail, the renowned Camel Valley with an amazing array of wildlife and birdlife and is considered ideal for those seeking a quiet country retreat yet within a few miles of Wadebridge, Bodmin, the North Cornish coast and of course the main A30 at Bodmin and mainline railway links.


Most satnav's will take you very close by or certainly to Ruthernbridge, but from Wadebridge we would advise going towards Burlawn, turning left towards Withiel, past Hustyns Health Club & Resort on your left and continue on this road which is signposted towards Ruthernbridge. Approximately 200 yards before Ruthernbridge on your left is a telegraph pole with some yellow and black tape and this is the driveway. Continue up the driveway until the road forks to the left where you will see a Cole Rayment & White For Sale sign indicating the entrance to Penrose Cottage.

From the Bodmin direction, take the road to Ruthernbridge, go across the bridge and after approximately 200 yards you will see the driveway on your right with the telegraph pole with yellow and black tape. Take this turning until the road forks to the left, take the left hand fork highlighted by the Cole Rayment & White For Sale sign to Penrose Cottage.
