Maryfield is an imposing Gothic style, Grade II * listed detached house situated in a rural setting surrounded by the National Trust Estate of Antony House and close to the outstanding south east Cornwall coast with the famous fishing villages of Looe and Polperro nearby and the renowned beach at Whitsand Bay and classic Cornish seaside villages of Kingsand and Cawsand. The House is very spacious and perfectly suited for a combined family holiday or for a weekend reunion of friends.

The History

The House was originally built as a school in 1847. This was to commemorate the birth of the first child to Mr & Mrs Pole Carew, owners of the neighbouring Antony House. The architect William White, who also designed the church next door, fashioned Maryfield into a Gothic style vicarage. Maryfield was acquired by the current owners a few years ago and has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment programme.
