 Situated less than ten minutes from the famous North Cornish Coast, Hobbacott Mill and The Round House, present a rare opportunity to acquire such an established Equestrian property in this location.

Both Hobbacott Mill and the Roundhouse are approached over dual entrance driveways. The first driveway is well maintained gravel and is approached by electric powered gates. Leading to very well kept grounds and gardens and far reaching views stretching across open rolling countryside.  The second driveway is also gravelled and takes you to the courtyard at the rear of the property.

Hobbacott Mill is an outstanding residence which stands in its own fine grounds and enjoys a south facing garden overlooking its own paddocks. Hobbacott Mill has a wealth of space throughout several rooms. Central to the property is a spectacular gallery rising from the dining area to the first floor which has the bedrooms and the top floor presents two further spaces that could easily be considered further bedrooms, living, office or quiet space.

The Round House is a two bedroom annexe. Very comfortably appointed it is an excellent source of second income via such things as Air B&B and of course the location would enhance that further. Alternatively would make an ideal granny or family annexe.

The Stables and yard are easily accessed directly from the parish road via two gateways suitable for most transport, and within the yard is ample hard standing for turnout and loading. The stables were constructed in recent years to an exacting and high standard being designed by specialist Equestrian Architects. Of traditional block construction and then over-clad with stained timber under a natural slate roof, the stables comprise three spacious loose boxes with large water-drinkers, a stable sized feed room, a tack room and large hay barn. The facilities have mains power and borehole water, including a water filtration system.

The land extends to approximately six acres of paddock. The paddocks are currently wooden post and rail fenced into two enclosures. The boundaries are both good and safe for horses and stock. The paddocks have working water troughs, have been properly and well maintained and would be described as being in good heart.

There is also a private bore hole water supply to the stables, paddocks and garden. Both Hobbacott Mill and The Roundhouse enjoy fibre optic broadband.

Whilst emphasising the Equestrian aspect of Hobbacott Mill, it has to be said that the property lends itself (subject to permissions) to a variety of other uses. The stable block may have conversion potential for holiday use, and the land has a nice aspect for other smallholding or light commercial activities such as plant growing etc.
