Wooda is a truly beautiful property set in the idyllic moorland hamlet of Warleggan, which according to the sign is twinned with Narnia, and given the magical middle of nowhere location this would be easy enough to believe. With easy access for visiting both the north and south Cornish coasts and everything else in between, this stunning Grade II Listed country house has plenty to offer: elegant and stylish interiors creating a warm and welcoming home, original features of times gone by and relaxing outdoor spaces in the wonderful gardens with far reaching views across the open countryside. Spending time together and creating treasured holiday memories whilst unwinding and relaxing in complete tranquility, it doesn't get much better than this!
The cottage style kitchen/breakfast-room with its beamed ceiling, slate stoned floors and oil-fired Aga is perfect for informal meals and holiday snacks, and for more formal dining there's an elegant dining-room which overlooks the front garden. The stylishly furnished sitting-room is the ideal place to curl up and relax whatever the season and although the room is on the small side for eight guests there is a further lounge in the snug/old bakehouse - ideal if you want to spread out or have some quiet time alone. This charming room, complete with original cloam oven and another wonderful wood-burner, is just a few steps from the kitchen door via a covered external walkway, which in May time is drenched in wisteria - it's a stunning show. Upstairs there are four beautifully appointed bedrooms, one with an en suite shower-room and the family bathroom with a free-standing bath and separate shower. The gardens are quite delightful all year round and will please enthusiasts and novices alike with lawned areas, a cottage garden area, wonderful planting schemes, a pond and seating areas for al fresco eating and drinking (please note the rear garden is set over three levels and access is via steps and small slopes). For days out and about ramblers will be in their element as there are woodland and moorland walks right on your doorstep and whilst out, why not stop off at a moorland village pub for some good old Cornish hospitality. Nearby Cardinham Woods offers a network of trails for walkers and cyclists and the grand house and gardens at the National Trust's Lanhydrock are a must. Head to the south coast to visit the popular sailing town of Fowey and picturesque Charlestown harbour or for foodies head north to fashionable Padstow and Port Isaac for sheer indulgence!
