This charming traditional cottage, on the edge of the pretty village of St Breward, is the perfect retreat for family and couples who want to savour a different pace of life whatever the season. Located on the western side of Bodmin moor, this area is a haven for walkers and cyclists with endless miles of trails and open moorland waiting to be discovered, and if you want to head off to the coast the picturesque fishing villages and golden sandy beaches of Cornwall's ever popular north coast are all within easy reach.
In a small courtyard of cottages backing onto a pretty meadow, this most appealing and tranquil location is all within walking distance of the local pub – the highest in Cornwall – village shop, church and village hall; so if you want to experience a slice of village life, it's all right on your doorstep.
Packed full of character with exposed beams and stonework, inglenook fireplaces, slate floors and steep cottage stairs you will feel at home from the minute you step inside this lovely semi-detached cottage.
There's a stylish kitchen/breakfast-room and a separate dining-room, giving you a choice of places to eat, and for relaxing you can snuggle up in front of the wood-burner in the sitting-room or sneak off into the snug. Add to this a convenient downstairs loo and a separate utility-room and you'll soon realise that this little cottage really is a bit of a tardis.
The dual-aspect master bedroom, decorated in pastel shades, has an en suite shower-room, and the two single bedrooms share the family bathroom.
Outside the small patio, bounded by a stream, is a real sun-trap and a lovely spot to enjoy morning coffee or indulge in a cream tea; yummy!
Bodmin Moor is a hiker's paradise with 100 square miles of dramatic wilderness and stunning scenery to explore; there is nothing more exhilarating than galloping across the moor on horseback and you can join a group at the local riding stables.
If you want to revert to pedal power the renowned Camel Trail starts at nearby Wenford Bridge, where you can fill up on a hearty breakfast at the Snail's Pace cafe, before you start winding your way through wooded valleys and countryside eventually cycling along the banks of the Camel Estuary as you arrive at the foodie heaven of Padstow.
Take things a little easier with a day out at the great houses and gardens of Pencarrow and Lanhydrock, or take a wander around the pretty fishing villages of Port Isaac and Boscastle.
