Just a few miles from Fowey and close to the pretty village of Lanlivery, Roseney Barn is tucked away down little lanes in a tranquil rural location, the perfect retreat for those looking for a little rest and relaxation. The spacious sitting-room has a wood-burner for toasting your toes after days out exploring, and doors out to a big, fully enclosed patio, a sheltered spot for enjoying a morning coffee or glass of wine with the sound of birdsong floating on the air. The large en suite bedroom has a super-king size bed with lovely linens, perfect for stretching out after a day’s walking. Lanlivery is just over a mile away, with its ancient stone church and the renowned Crown Inn, which serves excellent, locally-sourced food. Historic Lostwithiel is nearby, with waterside walks, tearooms and an abundance of antiques shops to explore.
This detached, stone-built barn is furnished and equipped to a very high standard, making a wonderful base for exploring this lovely area. There are footpaths galore through wooded valleys and nearby Helman Tor, ideal for walkers and cyclists. The welcoming owners live next door and offer a warm welcome, then leave you in peace to relax and unwind. With just one other neighbour, peace and quiet is assured. Walkers will love this area with the Saints’ Way – an ancient drover’s route which crosses Cornwall from coast to coast – meandering through moors, lanes and woodland from Padstow in the north to Fowey in the south. There are sandy beaches, spectacular clifftop walks and coastal towns and villages all within a few miles, with the National Trusts’ nearby Lanhydrock estate offering an exciting cycle route, wonderful gardens and a magnificent Victorian country house to explore. The World Heritage Site Luxulyan Valley is also close by and the renowned Eden Project is just a half-hour drive away.
