Set in the midst of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and perfect for enthusiastic walkers, this comfortably spacious retreat for two is ideally situated for exploring the mystical tors of Bodmin Moor. Hidden away down typical Cornish lanes, approached by a sloping driveway shared only with the Owners, and with steps down to the door, this south-facing detached cottage boasts under-floor heating and is tastefully furnished inside. The living area is on three levels, with steps from the well-equipped kitchen down to the sitting-room and up to the galleried dining-room, where full length windows take full advantage of the wonderful countryside views – they are very special. Enjoy alfresco dining in the garden-area – a lovely spot to sit back and relax. Although children are regrettably not accepted at this property, babies up to six months are welcome.
Both north and south coasts are within easy driving distance so you can enjoy days browsing around the popular harbour side town of Fowey and historic Charlestown on the south and discover gastronomic delights at renowned Padstow or ride the waves at Polzeath on the north. Green-fingered enthusiasts can marvel at gardens great and small with the pretty cottage garden of Pinsla, the world renowned Eden Project and the grand estate, gardens and parkland of The National Trusts' Lanhydrock all within easy access. At Lanhydrock you can also take to two wheels and discover the exciting network of trails that wind around the grounds, and for further cycling adventures Cardinham Woods will not disappoint. Siblyback Lake offers a range of watersports including windsurfing and canoeing, and for live theatre and shows take a trip to Sterts Moorland Theatre (seasonal) and The Rum Store at Carnglaze Caverns - a theatre venue like no other!
