Conditional Planning Permission Achieved for Grade II Listed Whalesborough Cottage
Old Whalesborough Cottage conservatory to be replaced with new contemporary extension
Cornwall Council has granted The Bazeley Partnership conditional planning permission for Whalesborough Cottage, a Grade II listed Domesday Manor, located in the rural hamlet of Marhamchurch, Bude. The planning proposes the removal of the property’s existing conservatory to make way for a new contemporary extension that will be built in its place.
The property shares it’s picturesque location on the expansive Whalesborough Farm with the newly constructed Whalesborough Health Club and luxury holiday cottages. The cottage – formerly a farmhouse – was built (approximately) in the 17th to early 18th Century. It was then remodelled in the late 18th to early 19th Century, with some alterations also being added in the 20th Century. The rear wing of the property is now a separate cottage.
Whalesborough Cottage currently boasts a stone rubble exterior, whitewashed and rendered to the front and rear right of the property. Featuring a slate roof with gable ends, projecting gable end stacks with shafts of local brick; a stone wall joins the rear wings of the cottage to complete a rear courtyard.
The intention of this new project is to carefully construct a well-planned, contemporary two-storey extension that serves to highlight the period character of the 17th Century farmhouse property. The extension is planned to entirely relate to the existing interior layout of the property, while also maintaining a means of external access out into the rear garden. The planning proposal also features external doors which will lead out onto an outdoor decking terrace. The design seeks to be a “hidden gem” in the countryside.
