This Victorian rectory for sale with countryside views has its own tennis court and includes four holiday cottages. 

The Rectory, on the Cornish side of the Cornwall and Devon border near Boyton, dates back to the 1800s and is rare in that it is not listed - meaning that fewer restrictions apply to this property than most others of its kind.

The home sits overlooking the countryside of the upper Tamar Valley, and includes an established letting business of four award-winning holiday cottages, plus gardens and a paddock. 

Entering the home, there are high ceilings throughout, with the central reception hall leading to the drawing room, which features two large sash windows.
