Step Inside

This two-story reverse living home is set above the ebb and flow of the River Gannel. Arrive into the hallway on the ground floor and lead into the river facing living and dining areas. Filled with light from the glass doors, the living room has a calm and airy feel, interjected with coastal blues and mustard yellow details. From the living room you can throw open the doors and sip your morning coffee on the balcony as coastal life awakens. While on a winter evening there is plenty of space for children to huddle around board games or cosy up on the sofas with a favourite film. For those who delight in freshly cooked fodder, the adjacent kitchen is well equipped for preparing Cornish suppers, and with the nearby Fern Pit cafe selling freshly shored lobster, we can't think of a better home to dine in. One of the four boutique bedrooms is located on the ground floor, styled with sea blue hues and looking out over the river and picturesque fields. The contemporary ensuite bathroom showcases Portuguese inspired tiles and deep inky blues, promising a tranquil shower for sandy toes. Leading downstairs to the lower ground floor, a family bathroom and three more boutique bedrooms await, all with access to the impressive sea view terrace. With soft, luxury linens and stunning Cornish vistas, you can flip from dreamy bed to sandy shore in moments. 

From your Holiday Door

From the collection of bedrooms on the lower ground floor, step out onto the terrace and take in that fresh Cornish air. From here you can soak up the views of the River Gannel, the rich green fields that flank it and the sweeping sands and surf of Crantock. Dine al fresco with the Caribbean-esque waters below you, and hear the chitter-chatter of paddle boarders as they glide along with the tide. At Wickham House you are ideally placed to stroll to some of Newquay's best beaches. Fistral and Crantock are at your doorstep, offering water sports sessions, lazy afternoons on the sand and windswept winter walks. For the foodies, there is a plethora of inviting places to eat within walking distance, including the Fern Pit Cafe (with their famous crab sandwiches), Lewinnick Lodge and Rick Stein's at Fistral. Dipping in the river, exploring Newquay town and Crantock Village, and watching the flaring sunset are just a few delights that await you at Wickham House. But if wider Cornwall calls you, a short drive up the coastal road will take you to beautiful Watergate Bay, Mawgan Porth and Padstow or west towards St Ives.
