The story of Dinham House

Dinham House is set in a unique private estate in north Cornwall, positioned in stunning countryside overlooking the Camel Estuary, close to Rock, Padstow, Daymer Bay, Polzeath, and Wadebridge.

The house was originally built in the 1630s, and then remodelled with a classical Georgian façade in the 1840s to create a larger family home. It was extensively restored and renovated in 1968 by the Wight family, and has been recently and sympathetically extended by the second generation. The 40-acre grounds form a natural amphitheatre with fields, previously called “Dinham Lawns”, running down to the estuary and curving up to the wooded headland.

Dinham House has been the permanent home of Aldwin and Yasmina since 2015, where they live with their three sons. Having spent much of their time in the Middle East, the family is now settled in this beautiful riverside setting in north Cornwall – and enjoys welcoming guests to the grounds for exclusive self-catering holidays, weddings, and special events.

The low profile development of the estate has evolved over many years. Located within an AONB, the owners’ aim is to always retain privacy, a relaxed atmosphere, and make the most of the views.

"Dinham House is in such a remote setting. Very few people have been here, which makes it so special."
