Doyden House was built by Captain Herbert Latimer Conor, a former prison governor, at the beginning of the 20th century. He chose the location as his retirement home for its panoramic ocean views across Lundy Bay towards the Rumps. Whilst Polzeath, Rock and Port Isaac are all within 5 miles, Doyden House enjoys a peaceful location away from the crowds. For uninterrupted views of the ocean and immediate access to the coast path, look no further. The house now comprises four spacious apartments, arranged over two floors, all with magnificent sea views. The lawn around the house is perfect for soaking up the sun and the views on summer days, but the real fires in each of the apartments will add a warm and comforting touch on those days when the Atlantic storms lash the coast.
Conor is a comfortable, ground floor apartment with the benefit of its own small, grassed area just above the cottage. The view from the sitting room unfolds across headland and down to the coast with Pentire Head in the distance. Within the same building as Conor you’ll also find our other holiday cottages Rumps, Carnweather and Mouls.
The inlet of Port Quin bay, a rockpooler’s paradise, is just a short walk away. The popular beaches of Rock, Polzeath, Port Isaac are all within 4 miles.
Port Isaac, Polzeath, Rock and Padstow offer an array of shops, art galleries and restaurants whilst Doyden House enjoys a peaceful location away from the crowds. Some say this is the most spectacular coastline in North Cornwall.

Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!
