Wind your way along the country lanes across the dramatic landscape of Bodmin Moor to escape the humdrum of everyday life and take things at a much gentler pace with a well-deserved break at this delightful traditional cottage. From this wonderful rural location, listen to the sounds of the countryside and watch the night skies (this is a designated dark sky area so you are in for a treat) and truly get back to being one with nature, and if you want to get out and about it's a great base for exploring all the delights of the magical kingdom that is Cornwall.
Beautifully restored, combining all the comforts of modern day living whilst retaining the original charm, you'll feel at home from the minute you arrive at Hudson Cottage. The cosy sitting-room invites you to curl up in front of the wood-burner, a welcome sight on those out-of-season breaks, and the cottage kitchen/diner is a delightful room – surprisingly light and airy with doors leading out to the pretty courtyard garden, a lovely spot for everything from morning coffee to an evening night cap. The modern bathroom is on the ground floor with a lovely free-standing bath, a good excuse to indulge in a leisurely holiday soak, and the two pretty bedrooms are upstairs and the bunk bedroom is sure to be a hit with younger members of your party.
Less than half a mile down the road is Siblyback Lake with grassy areas to sit out and enjoy a picnic whilst the children play on the outdoor play area or perhaps you might take the three mile circular track either on foot or two wheels spotting wildlife and birdlife along the way.
This area is a walker's paradise with a whole host of countryside walks that lead right from your front door. Explore the wide open spaces of Bodmin Moor, with its historic engine houses dotted across the landscape and fascinating granite outcrops that defy gravity, or head to Golitha Falls to follow the River Fowey as it winds its way through Draynes Woods – and afterwards treat yourself to a hearty meal at Inkies Smokehouse located in the car park, you've earned it.
The beautiful gardens and historic houses at Lanhydrock Estate and Cotehele are well worth a visit and there is live theatre and shows on offer at the Sterts Moorland Theatre (seasonal) and the Rum Store at Carnglaze Caverns.
If you fancy a day on the beach or want to discover some of the charming coastal villages and towns, both the south and north coastal are easily accessible. Head north to ride the waves at Widemouth Bay and Polzeath or discover culinary delights at Padstow or Port Isaac, and on the gentler south coast you will be charmed with the fishing town of Looe and the fashionable sailing resort of Fowey.
