Immortalised in poetry and frequented by the Poet Laureate the late Sir John Betjeman in his youth, Torquil stands in extensive enclosed grounds, which are perfect for a family getaway or a group holiday.Befitting the era it was founded, the house boasts a classical feel throughout, with a recent renovation subtly ensuring it is well equipped, with comfortable furnishings, a large and sunny kitchen, claw foot baths throughout and a beautifully presented sitting room, perfect for entertaining. As well as being the perfect summer spot for alfresco dining and swimming in the sea, a cosy log fire makes it a great winter escape too. The property also benefits from a private gymnasium, sauna and jacuzzi, available on separate request. Daymer Bay has a gently shelving sandy beach that is perfect for small children. Within walking distance are the fairways of St Enodoc golf club which has international recognition, and also the pretty St. Enodoc Church - the burial place of the aforementioned Sir John Betjeman.

About the location

DAYMER BAY

Daymer Bay and the village of Trebetherick were both loved by Sir John Betjeman and are unquestionably special. With a huge appeal to both the young and not so young, Daymer Bay has recently been voted one of the best beaches in the world! St. Enodoc Church, once buried in the sand, is within comfortable walking distance of Daymer Bay and is the resting place of Sir John Betjeman. Daymer Bay holds great appeal for wind surfers with the waves rolling up the estuary. There is enormous fun too for small children with buckets and spades and fishing in the rock pools. Up from the coast path as it runs from Daymer Bay is Highcliffe, nestling between Polzeath and Trebetherick, both of which boast a number of pubs, restaurants and village stores all offering a wide variety of fresh quality produce. The properties at Highcliffe have the advantage of being within easy reach of Daymer, Polzeath and Greenaway - Greenaway being the name given to the clifftop area, beach and small cove with rock pools overlooking the Atlantic beyond that lies between Daymer and Polzeath.
