Dating back to 1750, the Wards Yard cottage has charm in spades, and displays rustic elements such as exposed beams, with sash windows, wooden doors and floors, and white walls, in keeping with its character.

However, the building has been updated in all the important ways and its modern appliances include electric WIFI operated heating.

Being open plan on the ground floor, it maximises space with a living room flowing through to the kitchen and dining area.

A log burning stove within a lovely wood and brick fireplace adds to the cosy factor, while the kitchen is well equipped with fitted units.

A double bedroom and a roomy contemporary style bathroom are on the first floor, the latter with a white three piece suite, and wainscotting panelling.

Above these is a second double bedroom that is beamed with an apex sloping roof.

Wards Yard is within a central location, accessed easily from both Baxtergate and New Quay Road.

It is a comfortable home or coastal bolt hole that is close to the harbour, shops and services, or it can be continued in use as a holiday let, with ongoing bookings.

Ward’s Yard is for sale with Henderson’s estate agents, priced £235,000. Call 01947 602626 for more information.

Ward’s Yard is an eighteenth century gem of character and comfort
