Description


This charming, 18th-century house is situated in an enviable position just above Porthilly Cove. A private pathway leads down to the beach, while its windows look out to scenic countryside and estuary views.

Lynam is rich in history and character. The property was used to provide refuge to Thai royals during the second world war, and retains many of its original features. It's a hidden treasure in Rock, where there are very few period properties.

You'll find the kitchen well equipped for preparing home cooked meals for friends and family. The elegant, spacious lounge has an open fireplace, sash windows and vast sofas, while the dining room has a stunning glass feature table, making it a grand location for dining. Throughout the social spaces, you'll discover beautiful antique furniture and lovely artwork.

Lynam has three bright and airy bedrooms. The spacious master bedroom has a dual aspect outlook across the water. Looking out to the boats riding at anchor, it's easy to forget that the hustle and bustle of Rock is just behind you. In contrast, from the comfortable and cosy twin rooms you can take in the surrounding countryside.

The house benefits from generously proportioned grounds, including a south-facing patio, enclosed gardens and a croquet lawn just beyond its walled curtilage. There is also a tennis court, ideal for starting a holiday tournament (just let us know if you're planning to use the court so that we can get it ship-shape for you). The croquet lawn and tennis courts are for the communal use of guests at Lynam and Little Lynam.

Lynam can be let along with its sister property Little Lynam to sleep a total of 12 people.
