LOCATION (TR19 7QG)
To quote “a hamlet of granite cottages with a great pub high up on the almost treeless heights just 2 minutes from the wonderful spectacular cliff coastline preserved by the National Trust, a fascinating unspoilt, very Cornish area”. The coastal footpath provides a dramatic romantic setting and is just a short stroll from the pub. The area has been well visited by Royalty over the decades and centuries with its old ruins of tin mines, one of which runs out ½ mile into the Ocean, mystic legends, castles, all of which are preserved by being part of the Cornwall and West Devon World Heritage Site – most inspiring. Ross POLDARK, the lead character in the TV series POLDARK lived in a farmhouse in the VILLAGE of BOTALLACK with the sea as its scenic backdrop. BOTALLACK lies just 7 miles North West of PENZANCE (of the pirate fame) on the B3306, the main road between Lands End and St Ives, between St JUST & PENDEEN. Little has changed in and around the village over the century however the location is now even more well known and popular as a haven for “SURFERS” who flock to nearby sandy surf beaches including SENNEN COVE. Unopposed in the village the pub has become a focal point and “hub” for the local community and the pub has won several awards and has entries within guides such as CAMRA Good Beer Guide, CAMRA Good Food, Guide Taste of the West, Cornwall Good Food Guide, and Alister Airds Good Pub Guide etc. The pub and village are well served by public transport.
This is without doubt one of the FINEST FREEHOUSES on the market within The West Country, the property was constructed in the mid 1700’s of local granite and is completely detached having pitched roofs. Our clients have run the business for 6 ½ years and have developed it as a favoured watering hole for walkers on the nearby coastal path, hikers, anglers, returning tourists and within the local community. It is a cheerful friendly pub with a log fire smouldering away within an unusual granite inglenook, comfortable settles, and assorted dark wood furniture, tin mining and old local photographs on stripped stone walls, attractive family extension leading to tables out in the front and pleasant back garden with an owl refuge. The LOUNGE BAR (45 + vertical drinkers) runs into the Family & Garden Room (25) and has a commanding CENTRAL BAR SERVERY with foot rail and high stools. A range of REAL ALE WICKETS not only provide good imbibing for the guests but also atmosphere with this wonderful HOSTELREY.
