Property Description

Nestling in the beautiful Tamar Valley, close to the Devon border, these delightful stone barn conversions have been completely renovated to provide very good accommodation. Set within an equestrian centre, highly commended by the British Horse Society, riding lessons are available by qualified British Horse Society approved staff - ranging from complete beginners to advanced, and your own horses are also most welcome. There is pleasant hacking as well as an all weather floodlit arena, show jumping and cross country course for beginners to experienced riders. Ideal for all horse lovers, St Leonards certainly is a holiday base with a difference, situated in a wooded valley, it provides for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. Set in a secluded suntrap on the edge of a courtyard and surrounded by 23 acres of grounds which is also home to a ½-acre coarse fishing lake. There is plenty of birdlife here including kingfishers, awaken to the sound of the dawn chorus! There is much to see here to suit all tastes, and it is an ideal location for touring the north and south coasts. Whether you wish to wander amidst wildlife, go fishing on the River Kensey close by, or take part in a game of paint ball (available on site), there are plenty to get out and about and feel invigorated by the fresh Cornish air. Whatever the season and however you wish to fill your time, the cottages have been very comfortably furnished and equipped, featuring solid pine throughout and woodburners, to make them a welcome home to come back to. Whilst there are a wealth of distractions available on site, the surrounding area is also a delight to explore. There is an archaelogical site nearby which was featured on TV’s ’Time Team’ programme. Go west to the Widemouth Heritage Coast and visit mystical Tintagel and Port Isaac Bay, or head east towards Dartmoor’s wilderness; whichever direction you travel in there is sure to be something new to see. Launceston, 2 miles, once the ancient capital of Cornwall, has shops, a steam railway, castle, golf and an indoor leisure centre. A variety of golf courses locally. A splendid family location with something for everyone, all guests will be well placed for touring both Devon and Cornwall. Launceston for all amenities, 11/2 miles. Playstation 3 is available to hire from the owner. Shop 1½ miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A lovely holiday for all the family. The cottage was great and very relaxing. There was so much to see and do, easy to travel around Cornwall. The cottage had everything we needed. Didn’t want to leave! Aug 2011.
  2. Lovely location, peaceful and casual. Ideal for horse lovers, great to have a pool, owners very helpful. July 2011.
  3. Cosy cottage, everything one would need was provided. Situated on a working equestrian centre, ideal for ’horse lovers’ but not in your face if you don’t want it to be! Sept 2010.
  4. We found the accommodation upon arrival very clean and tidy with all of the things that you would need readily available, there was even a fresh vase of flowers and bottle of wine and box of chocolates awaiting us. Mr & Mrs Reeve could not have been any more helpful if they had tried and we would certainly recommend this holiday home away from home to anyone. Upon departure Mrs Wicks even asked if she could claim squatters rights as she enjoyed her stay that much. Sept 2010.
  5. Central to activities/days out in Devon and Cornwall. Aug 2010.
  6. Had everything you needed, was very clean, the owners left flowers, a bottle of wine and some chocs - very appreciated. June 2010.
  7. Very relaxing & peaceful. May 2010.
  8. The owners are very friendly. Lovely country side, especially if riding a horses. Very short distance to the town. In fact there is everything around-you don’t need to go to the beech- the swimming pool is absolutely brilliant. Also very good fishing. We recommend. Aug 2007.
  9. Excellent facilities, lovely horse!
  10. Brilliant holiday, pool and riding great!
