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 spacious living room with wood-burning stove in inglenook fireplace , sofa-bed (for +2) and French windows to patio. Fully fitted light-oak kitchen/dining room with built-in bench chairs around table. First floor: Large landing and door to balcony with wonderful valley views.
