A large and luxurious eco-friendly retreat, this sublime home couldn't be closer to the beach. Enjoy sea views, striking interiors and magnificent Cornish architecture.
  • Opposite Porthcothan Beach
  • Incredible architecture
  • Spacious walk-in larder
  • Yoga studio (perfect for retreats)
  • Games room with pool table and serving hatch
  • Outdoor kitchen, fire pit and pétanque court

A beach-lover’s playground, Noordhoek is a majestic property that soaks up frontline views over the North Cornwall coast. Edged in glass and textured stone, it sits just 10 strides from the reed-lined entrance of Porthcothan Bay, where it's set to become a vibrant destination house.

Designed to the highest of eco credentials, open the front door to reveal a true design masterpiece that establishes grandeur from the first moment inside. Comfortably welcoming 16 guests across the main house and separate annexe, every detail has been considered with multi-generational groups in mind, while the interiors carry a bold industrial edge throughout.

Upstairs, the enormous social space frames the best views in the house, stretching over golden sands and straight out to sea. Wake up slowly and take to the glass-fronted terrace as locals enjoy their first morning dip on the beach beyond. Finished in tactile mottled concrete and vibrant pops of yellow, the chef's kitchen appeals to the foodie in all of us.

A dual-aspect wood burner takes centre stage in the sunken lounge, which provides more sea views and a tempting refuge after days on the sand. When the sun is setting, pull your favourite bottle from the walk-in larder and enjoy sundowners while overlooking the garden or beach.

Four of Noordhoek’s six bedrooms occupy their own wing on the ground floor, each with an en-suite bathroom and either direct garden access or enviable sea views. There’s a double bunk room at one end to sleep six guests, two further zip and link rooms, plus a huge master suite. With the beach to one side and a stream to the other, it’s finished in dark grey tones, with a freestanding bath and two waterfall showers. Branching off from the vast entrance hall you'll find the fifth zip and link bedroom, and the games room just beyond, where competitive nights of table tennis or pool await. The outdoor kitchen sits behind, so families can slide open the doors to serve chilled glasses of rosé through the purpose-built hatch.

Taking in expansive garden views, the annexe is home to a yoga studio and kitchenette, as well as the sixth bedroom. Set beside a trickling stream and Noordhoek's wildflowers, it’s a fun yet peaceful spot for those wanting some time away from the group. Play games on the pétanque court or gather around the fire pit with evening drinks - Noordhoek's endless facilities make it perfect for organised retreats.

As well as ample parking, there's an electric car charger - perfect if you’re hoping to enjoy dining options in nearby Padstow or St Merryn. Closer to home, take to the coast path and walk towards Treyarnon, or book lessons with Waves Surf School - the best of North Cornwall awaits.

More about theGround Floor West Wing

Entryway and WC

Impressive in size and style, the hallway is just as spectacular as the rest of the house. Sleek tiled floors and stone-clad walls make way for an elegant entrance lobby. With sliding doors opening onto the terrace, take a seat on one of the two day sofas to enjoy the view over the gardens, or enjoy a peaceful moment away from the group with a novel and pot of tea.

An ode to the home’s stunning design, this area combines its modern design with industrial elements and repurposed materials. The adjacent WC is finished in grey tones with reclaimed Spanish tiles underfoot, while the open tread concrete staircase leads to the first floor. 

Master Bedroom with En-suite

Impressive in size, the master bedroom enjoys dual-aspect views over the beach and surrounding garden. A super king bed commands the space, while Tom Raffield lights radiate a warm glow. Noordhoek’s Scandi-esque interiors blend light wooden textures with industrial-style accents, from the triple wardrobes that flank the room, to the inviting day sofa.

Savour the view from here, or plunge into a deep bubble bath in the adjacent en-suite. Separated from the main room by a beautiful glass and steel crittall wall, the breath-taking bathroom features a freestanding tub, double walk-in showers and ‘his and hers’ basins.

Bedroom Two with En-suite

A peaceful pocket at the front of the house, bedroom two shares the same gorgeous beach outlook as the master. A 6ft zip and link bed sits just in front of the window, meaning your first coffee of the day can be enjoyed with views over the changing tides.

Finished in brilliant whites and soft greys, the home’s signature style is echoed throughout this bedroom. Its private position means it’s separated from the other rooms, with large built-in wardrobes and a dressing table to complete the space. A sleek en-suite bathroom with a waterfall shower can be found just next door.

Bedroom Three with En-suite

High-vaulted ceilings and vast sliding doors make bedroom three feel light, bright and airy. Another 6ft zip and link bed means the room can be transformed from a twin to super king, depending on your family’s requirements. Large built-in wardrobes provide plenty of storage for belongings, while a dressing table is accompanied by a soft sheepskin armchair. 

On warmer days, open the sliding doors for direct access onto the shared terrace, where the pétanque court and grassy lawn lie just beyond.

Bedroom Four with En-suite

Return from days on the beach to this calming sanctuary. A mirror image of bedroom three, this beautiful room echoes the same luxurious interiors and is complete with built-in wardrobes, a dressing table and armchair. 

As well as large sliding doors that lead straight out onto the garden, there’s a heavenly en-suite with a waterfall shower. After a good night’s sleep in the 6ft zip and link bed, head out onto the decked terrace for sundowners with the rest of the group. 

Bedroom Five with En-suite

Situated at the end of the corridor, bedroom five is ideal for little ones and is complete with twin bunk beds as well a versatile 6ft zip and link, meaning plenty of space for six. Minimal in design, this bedroom complements the home’s unique industrial style, with light wooden furnishings and bold metal fixtures. 

As with all of Noordhoek's bathrooms, the en-suite is finished in Tadelakt - a unique Moroccan polished plaster. As well as monochrome accents, it also features ‘his and hers’ sinks, a waterfall shower and a bath tub. 

More about theGround Floor East Wing

Games Room

A great space to break away from the group, the games room is equipped with a pool table, table tennis, a Smart TV and PlayStation 5. With floor-to-ceiling sliding doors spanning the length of the room and providing easy access onto the courtyard, drift between the pétanque court and the games room with ease during family tournaments. 

A purpose-built hatch opens up onto the outdoor kitchen, meaning chilled drinks can be enjoyed mid-game, or the designated head chef can try their hand at table tennis as supper is cooked on the charcoal barbeque. Switch on your holiday playlist through the SONOS speaker and let the evening slip away as drinks are poured and memories are made. 

Once the sun disappears over the horizon, youngsters will love gathering around the Smart TV to flick through their favourite films, while avid gamers will enjoy competing on the PlayStation 5. Choose between the large l-shaped sofa or sink into a plush beanbag for the ultimate holiday hangout. 

Boot Room 

Incredibly spacious, the boot room provides ample storage for beach gear. It’s lined with hooks to hang towels and changing robes, while the wooden benches beneath see it double up as a changing room. Don your wetsuits and collect surfboards and bodyboards from the storage rack before heading across the road and straight onto the sand.

Tucked around the corner of the boot room, you'll find an outdoor shower. Complete with an additional rail to hang wetsuits out to dry, it's perfectly placed for washing away excess sand before heading inside to get changed.

Wet Room

Perfect for sandy returns from the beach, rinse off in the double shower while your wetsuit takes a soak in the dunk tank. Finished in dark grey tile and featuring a drying rack, it has everything you need to feel refreshed after a day in the waves. 

Utility

Just next to the boot room, this large utility is home to a Bosch washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as another sink, drying rack and plenty of storage. Hang up bathing suits after a morning dip or find fresh beach towels before an afternoon adventure. 

More about theFirst Floor

Open Plan Kitchen and Dining Area

Exceptional Cornish craftsmanship can be found within every inch of Noordhoek, but particularly in the kitchen. A careful balance of oak, concrete and steel brought to life by Coast Creative, it features bespoke cabinetry and the best views in the house.

Contemporary in its design and practical in its layout, every element has been designed to enhance the natural beauty of the home's architecture, blending contemporary materials with state-of-the-art design techniques. High-vaulted ceilings elongate the space, while sliding doors welcome effortless al fresco meals between the two balconies. 

The large island provides the perfect setting to prepare cocktails, with an extensive glassware collection suspended overhead. You’ll also find a double Miele oven, combi-oven and induction hob for family feast nights, while a Miele wine cooler and Nespresso coffee machine take care of the drinks order. Two American-style fridge freezers and a Siemens integrated dishwasher will keep everything tidied away, and two farmhouse sinks mean it’s easy to cook up a storm while enjoying far-reaching views over the bay. West-facing, guests can watch as sunbeams flood the whole first floor and dusk descends.

Taking centre stage, the magnificent dining table seats 16 guests and shares the same jaw-dropping views. Open up the sliding doors and welcome the fresh air in over lunch, listen to the buzz of the beach below, or switch on the radio through the SONOS speaker.

Please note: guests with pacemakers should avoid using the induction hob as this can interfere with the device. 

Front Balcony (Sea Views)

Complete with low slung and locally crafted lounge chairs from Mena Woodwork, the double-ended balcony at the front of the house is an oasis to truly switch off. Accessed from either the kitchen or the main living area, the views over Porthcothan stretch as far as the eye can see. Whether you’re wrapped up warm on December nights, or clinking glasses in the summertime, the glass facade means you’re protected from the Cornish elements. What’s more, some of North Cornwall’s most spectacular sunsets can be cherished here, as glistening waves blend into orange skies. 

Rear Balcony (Garden Views)

To the other side of the kitchen, you’ll find a second elevated balcony, this time offering tranquil views over the courtyard and garden. Lay the oversized wooden dining table for al fresco feasts surrounded by olive and lemon trees, before descending the staircase onto the terrace and lawn.

Living Area

Enjoying spectacular views over Porthcothan Bay, the first floor living area is fronted by huge sliding doors that open up onto the balcony. With smooth concrete floors, high-vaulted ceilings and grey stone-clad walls, this room is impressive and welcoming, offering gorgeous views over the beach. Two soft grey sofas line the walls, while Tom Raffield lights complete the space and make the space completely cosy by nighttime. 

Dividing the living area from the sunken lounge is a dual-aspect wood burner. Perfect for wintery days, watch the wind whip up the waves in the distance while the fire flickers and warms the room. Open shelving provides log storage for chillier days, while the bookshelf is home to a SONOS speaker and an ever-growing collection of linen hardbacks. 

Sunken Lounge 

Providing a calm refuge after days exploring the surrounding coastline, the sunken lounge sits just next to the open plan kitchen, dining and living area. Divided by a large bookshelf and wood burner, break away from the rest of the group for some holiday downtime. Little ones will love sinking into a beanbag with a vintage Roald Dahl, while grown-ups set their eyes on the stunning sea views.

Walk-in Larder

Beyond the kitchen and separated by a four-metre crittall glass door, a spacious walk-in larder provides plenty of wine storage. Locally found materials like slate, oak and steel give a nod to tradition, while open shelving and a pantry-style sliding ladder provide high-level functionality.

Study

Providing direct access into the kitchen as well as the rear balcony and deck, retreat to the study for some time alone while catching up on emails. There’s a long desk on one side of the room and open plan shelving to the other, meaning plenty of space to store laptops and files. 

WC

Just opposite the sunken lounge, you’ll find a small WC which is finished in dark tones and reclaimed floor tiles. 

More about theAnnexe

Bedroom Six

Separate from the main house, the annexe sits towards the back of the garden and provides a peaceful refuge for couples and small families. Another minimal, Scandi-inspired super king bedroom awaits, complete with Tom Raffield lights and bespoke furnishings. The dual-aspect windows provide plenty of natural light, as well as views over the main house and luscious gardens. 

Kitchenette

A small but useful kitchenette is home to a fridge, sink, Nespresso coffee machine and kettle - meaning breakfast espressos and fresh croissants can be enjoyed before joining the rest of the group for the day ahead.

Bathroom

Clad in white tiles, the bathroom is sleek and sophisticated. Enjoy a refreshing waterfall shower and head out the door for supper on the terrace.

Yoga Studio

Designed for rest and relaxation, lay out a yoga mat in the studio with the bi-folds pulled back and the sunlight beaming in. Offering lovely views over the fire pit and garden, this is a great space to unwind before dinner.

More about theExterior

Outdoor Kitchen

Inspired by laid back South African living, the outdoor kitchen takes holiday barbequing to another level. Complete with an authentic Braai Man built-in barbeque, wine cooler and farmhouse sink, there’s everything you need to cook up an incredible al fresco feast. An outdoor dining table enjoys views over Noordhoek’s extensive grounds, while a bar offers additional seating in front of the games room hatch. A natural extension of Noordhoek's interiors, the same attention to detail has gone into the outside space, where recycled materials like Richlite add to its eco-friendly credentials.

Crack open a fridge-cold beer and enjoy an afternoon in the garden as supper slowly cooks on the coals. Exterior spotlights mean you can wine and dine long into the evening, before retiring to stargaze around the fire pit.

Garden 

A naturalistic garden inspired by its coastal setting, Noordhoek's outside space is hugged by expansive lawns, wildflowers and native grasses that blend seamlessly into the rugged landscape beyond. Expertly designed by award-winning local talent Sam Ovens, the garden is a celebration of imaginitive planting, specifically designed to weather the North Cornwall elements. Listen to the sound of the stream which runs adjacent to the garden, head over the wooden bridge to admire the meticulously crafted Cornish stone wall, or simply lounge on the lawn.

Just outside the wet room there's an outdoor shower, so you can rinse sandy wetsuits and muddy paws before heading inside. 

Pétanque Court

Towards the rear of the garden, a charming pétanque court awaits, so you can while away the hours practicing your bowling technique. 

Parking and EV Charger

Situated at the front of the property, the large paved driveway is accessed via electronic gates opposite the beach. There’s ample parking for five cars, and an electric car charger so you can plug in as soon as you arrive.
