Lynhays is found on the banks of the River Lynher in the hamlet of Bathpool at the foot of Bodmin Moor. If you love to wake up to the sound of birdsong and look out onto beautiful countryside you will love it here. Dippers, swallows, wagtails, kingfishers, buzzards and sometimes heron – just to name a few of the birds you will see. For walkers and cyclists you can set out from Lynhays onto the moors or into the woods. A large conservatory fronts this lovely single-storey, two bedroom cottage with an open plan living-room complete with wood-burner. The garden is ideal for summer evening barbecues and if you have small children a safety fence can be put along the river bank.
This is such an attractive cottage, with plenty of space for a family or friends to spread out and relax. Outside is the very spacious garden and behind the house the hill has been planted with wildflowers, indigenous trees and shrubs in order to hopefully attract butterflies and bees in the years to come. There is a well-fitted kitchen, with separate dining and sitting areas, in the open plan living-room which boasts a practical and most attractive bamboo floor, two pretty bedrooms (one with a king-size bed) and a modern shiny bright bathroom. The adjoining garage has a washing machine and room to hang all those wet suits or cycling paraphernalia, and there is the benefit of an extra WC as well. Very baby-friendly, the Owner provides two travel cots and a trundle bed for an extra child up to the age of 10 years old. Also available are a pushchair and children's toys. More or less equidistant from both north and south coasts, there is plenty of opportunity to have a bucket and spade day out on Polkerris Beach or Whitsand Bay in the south and Trebarwith Strand or Crackington Haven on the north coast. There are several National Trust houses in the area such as Lanhydrock House and Cotehele, for example. Pencarrow House and other attractions are close by, including the Bodmin and Wenford Railway and the Launceston Steam Railway. For kids there is Crealy Adventure Park and Trethorne Farm Park, and for the grown-ups the Eden Project and the wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan are a short drive away. So whatever the time of year, whatever the makeup of your party, Lynhays offers something for everyone.
