Gather family and friends to enjoy a special break at Pheasant Rise, an immaculate countryside retreat with gorgeous welcoming interiors, open plan living and it's dog-friendly too. Tucked away down a country lane, on the edge of the beautiful Lanhydrock Estate and minutes from the River Fowey at Respryn, there are miles of rural footpaths, woodland walks and riverside rambles to discover, so don't forget to pack your walking boots, yet with such easy access to the sheltered beaches, clifftops walks and glorious gardens along Cornwall's south coast, it's the perfect base for exploring as well.
The owners have presented a very beautiful home in this mid-terraced barn conversion and have taken great pride in ensuring you have the most comfortable of stays. With reversed level accommodation, the spacious open plan living room on the first floor invites you to spend time together, whether cooking up those holiday meals in the country-style kitchen, discussing the delights of the day around the dining-table, or lounging on the squidgy sofas in front of the toasty wood-burner after a day out exploring.
It's down to bed at Pheasant Rise, with all three bedrooms on the ground floor. All presented in soothing hues of blue and grey - you'll be in the land of nod in no time but if you need some further help why not treat yourself to a leisurely soak in the gorgeous freestanding bath in the en suite - bubbles are optional of course!
The elevated garden is the spot to take your meals in the great outdoors, with views of the woodland and countryside that surround. Set at the back of the property, it is accessed up a set of steps and through a gate. And to watch the comings and goings of the comical pheasants who regularly make an appearance, hence the name, enjoy elevenses perched on the garden bench outside the front door also watching out for the steam train that passes along the heritage steam railway line just across the road (at most there are five trains a day in the summer months).
Countryside pursuits are the order of the day from Pheasant Rise so a morning stroll around nearby Cardinham Woods will get you set up for the day ahead. Here there are trails to suit those on two feet or two wheels as well as your four-legged friends - and after all that exercise it's a good excuse to refuel at the popular Woodland Cafe. There are cycling routes to suit all abilities at Lanhydrock and for those who prefer cycling on the flat, join the renowned Camel Trail in Bodmin and pedal your way out to Cornwall's foodie capital of Padstow.
Cornwall's largest house Lanhydrock with its beautiful parkland and gardens (National Trust) is on your doorstep and if gardens are your thing add Pencarrow and the world-famous Eden Project to your list. You can put your handicap to the test at the parkland golf course at Lanhydrock or conquer the castle at Lostwithiel, a pretty riverside town with a selection of artisan shops - in fact the best view of the castle has to be from the cafe at the Duchy Nursery - and whilst here, you might like to buy a Cornish plant or two to take home as a living memory of your holiday in this wonderful county.
You're in Cornwall so a day at the coast is a must. The sheltered waters and sandy beaches at Polkerris and Readymoney Cove on the south coast are very family friendly and Polzeath on the north is the surfers' favourite. Wander around the boutique shops and galleries in the popular sailing town of Fowey and pull up a pew to enjoy some local cuisine at one of the many foodie hotspots. Head to Charlestown to marvel at the historic tall ships in the pretty harbour and for some fishing adventure join a shark fishing trip from Looe.
