Property Focus - Goldbank Cottage, Nanstallon

A new feature of the Jackie Stanley blog will be to regularly focus on a particular property on our books that we think deserves a special mention. In the first of these articles, we would like to draw your attention to Goldbank Cottage in Nanstallon.

Goldbank Cottage Nanstallon

Goldbank Cottage is a highly attractive detached cottage with a huge amount of character and charm even though it was completely renovated throughout a few years ago to a high specification. The interior is stylish and modern, yet retains character and features that are so very popular such as the beamed ceilings, slate floors, attractive windows and doors, 2ft thick walls and open fireplaces with a woodburning stove in the sitting room. The property is spacious with 3 good sized bedrooms and a large stylish family bathroom on the first floor and ample living accommodation on the ground floor with separate fitted and equipped kitchen and a open lounge/dining room with extra snug/sunroom.


Goldbank Cottage is currently a very successful holiday let and has recently been granted 5 star status with English Country Cottages achieving £1195 in peak season, yet it would equally make a lovely permanent home with its large landscaped gardens at the rear and views across the surrounding countryside. It also has driveway parking to the front and two very useful stone outbuildings at the back of the garden.

Garden View

Nanstallon is a extremely pretty village well positioned for easy access to the A30. It is within 2 miles of Bodmin and approximately 10 minutes’ drive from Wadebridge. Denby riding stables, Camel Valley Vineyard and the Camel Trail are all in close proximity making Nanstallon a perfect place for either permanent residence or as a second home.
