Property Description

Equidistant from both of Cornwall’s spectacular coastlines and nestling in delightful woodland, these thoughtfully converted barns are set in sunny, pleasantly landscaped gardens, each with its own patio. Retaining all the character and charm of original structural features, including exposed beams and stone walls, they have been furnished in keeping with their rustic simplicity. Peacefully positioned on a private drive beyond the owner’s home, they enjoy fine views across the valley towards National Trust Lanhydrock House and its formal gardens. Lanhydrock House is 1¼ miles away and features several cycle trails, including a gentle trail for families throughout its grounds and into bluebell woods. There is also cycle hire, free parking and a café. Beaches of both the north and south coasts are about 15 miles away, some popular and offering fishing, sailing and surfing, others small and secluded; the coastal path is a continuous drama of cliff and sea and sky. There is excellent walking in the surrounding area and cycling in Cardinham Woods with dedicated, scenic cycle trails for those wanting more of a challenge, and an excellent café for refreshments. Restormel Castle and Lostwithiel, both 4 miles. Bodmin, 3 miles, has shops, cycle hire, swimming-pool, sports centre, inns, restaurants and golf. Bodmin Steam Railway can be heard in the distance within the valley. Riding locally. Wadebridge and Camel Trail cycle hire 7 miles. Padstow 12 miles, Fowey 10 miles and the Eden Project 8 miles. Shops 3 miles.

Entrance through stable door into cosy open-plan sitting-room with fully fitted pine kitchen area with breakfast bar. Double bedroom. Bathroom with spa bath, over-bath shower and toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Such a lovely place to stay, the owner was really helpful and accommodating. Do bring some warm clothes though! April 2012.
  2. Lovely cottage a little isolated but beautiful surroundings. Loads to do Eden Project a must. Go Bat watching at night its lovely. Aug 2011.
  3. Lovely cottage, fantastic location to visit all areas of Cornwall. July 2011.
  4. Great location near to walks in Cardinham woods. Very central so that lots of excellent locations within easy reach. Very quiet and peaceful. June 2011.
  5. Good quiet location, but easy access to all of Cornwall. June 2011.
  6. A very comfortable cottage. Oct 2010.
  7. Ideal for a couple who just want to relax and are not worried about a night life. Nov 2010.
  8. It was in a secluded area on the edge of woodland with beautiful views but very convenient for accessing other parts of Cornwall and near to Bodmin. May 2010.
  9. It had a romantic feel about it because it was ’in the woods’. April 2010.
  10. Very nice, quiet setting and a cosy cottage. Sept 2009.
  11. A charming and well appointed cottage well suited for those seeking seclusion but not too far from amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It compares well with others of similar ilk. Great for dog walking! June 2009.
  12. The accommodation was clean, tidy and everything worked as it should. June 2009.
  13. Nicely placed for the West Country’s many and varied attractions. June 2009.
  14. The accommodation was lovely and quiet and felt very homely. Sept 2008.
  15. Cottage seems remote - the only sound not related to the countryside was the remote chuffing of the steam railway when the wind was in the right direction but through the woods and up the other side you are at the junction of the A30 and A38 with good access to all parts. The accommodation most impressive - your panorama did not really do justice to it. My wife wondered if we could persuade some of our daughters to come and book the other cottages and make a family holiday! June 2008.
  16. Fantastic location for a holiday with your dogs. Great walks right on the doorstep in Cardinham woods. Also, great location for exploring both the northern and southern coasts of Cornwall. You get the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere, but all the amenities are just 3 miles away in Bodmin. Sept 2007.
  17. We were very impressed with how beautifully the cottage had been decorated - with intelligent use of good quality materials - it felt modern but retained the exposed stone and wood - it was very comfortable but at the same time the organic matter of the old building was very visible. This was a good mix. Also good - very light front room with multiple windows but cool, dark bedroom - perfect balance. April 2007.
