Doyden House was built by Captain Herbert Latimer Conor, a former prison governor, at the beginning of the twentieth 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.
Rumps offers uninterrupted views towards Pentire Head and the Mouls. Tastefully decorated, Rumps offers a welcoming and comfortable base to explore this utterly fabulous part of Cornwall. Within the same building as Rumps you’ll also find our other holiday cottages Conor, 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 all within 4 miles and the South West Coast Path is on your doorstep.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea.

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