Total isolation away from the rigours of the world at the moment!! with magnificent views over rolling fields out to the Atlantic ocean our cottage offers a chance to explore the wild wonderful coast of North Cornwall at its best!
Our cottage was featured in the National Guardian Top Ten Cool Cottages in North Cornwall 2014 !! We offer rustic simplicity! It has a seperate snug with TV and DVD. A large vaulted bedroom, and kitchen /dining/ seating room with log burner and views out to the Atlantic ocean.
Breathtaking cliff top walks, wander across beautiful beaches, come home to a roaring log fire, cozy up and watch a classic movie with a glass of wine!
  • Absolutely beautiful, the cottage was perfectly peaceful with breath taking views. Amazing walks and scenery near by. Sitting with a hot chocolate infront of the log fire in the cosy cottage was just amazing. I will 100% be returning, Caroline was lovely and so very helpful.

    Angel2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect. We spent a cosy few days here, reading in front of the fire and cooking delicious meals in a very well equipped kitchen! Much more spacious than I expected and with lots of lovely touches like soup on arrival! Caroline’s place is lovely, as is she. We will be back!

    Courtney2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, thanks!

    Gabriel2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great host, brilliant house, 10/10!

    George2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Caroline’s place was absolutely fantastic. Even though we were in the midst of Storm Denis we felt extremely comfortable and had an amazing time. Caroline was so lovely and helpful and the soup and bread was such a personal touch and it was fantastic. We would definitely come again!

    Esther2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely gorgeous place to stay for a break away from it all. We were staying during Storm Dennis and I can’t think of a cosier place to hunker down - thick stone walls and a roaring fire.. very cosy! We loved going for coffee and cake at the nearby Boscastle Farm Shop followed by a blustery walk along the cliffs. Stunning. Caroline is a wonderful host. Hope we can come back one day.

    Gillian2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice cottage in a lovely spot, weather was pretty rough but it was very cosy , will visit again !

    Robert2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay at Caroline's, lots of nice touches which made it extra special during a huge storm. We would absolutely recommend staying here for a visit to Cornwall. Thanks again for the delicious soup and bread!

    The studio is modern, spacious and light, with well-equipped kitchen and cosy living space, wood burner and views across the garden into ancient woodlands. We are in a designated area of 'outstanding landscape beauty' rich in historical sites.
    Our studio apartment is light and spacious, attached to our recently self built ecohome. It has a wood burner and well-equipped living/kitchen space. There is a sofa bed on the ground floor which can be used for an extra guest or two by arrangement. We provide sheets and towels. Eco features include heat recovery ventilation, photovoltaic panels, solar thermal panels, high levels of insulation and heating using logs from our 8 acres of deciduous woodland. Water is from our own spring. There is a short film showing the building of the house on the website of co-host tonyhillfilms.
    East Cornwall offers easy access to all the county has to offer in terms of tourist attractions. It's ideal for people who want to spend some time in an unspoilt rural area slightly off the beaten tourist track - no crowds or traffic problems. Moors and beaches, Heligan and the Eden Project are within easy driving distance for days out. Plymouth is near enough for evening entertainment.
  • My husband and I had a really lovely time staying at Pat and Tony’s beautiful air b&b. Such a beautiful space with so many lovely small touches- we especially loved the homemade bread and jam that were waiting for us. Tony was super friendly and helpful and gave us so many tips for the local area. Definitely would recommend if you’re looking to stay in Cornwall!

    Nats2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • One of the nicest places we have stayed. A gorgeous space, set in a beautiful woodland with a river near by. If you want a place to unwind, and cosy up by the fire after walks on the moor I can not recommend it highly enough. Thanks very much to Pat and Tony

    Flora2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the eco house. A lovely, light house with a really spacious feel. Tony made us feel very welcome, and the house has everything necessary for a very comfortable stay. The directions to the house were easy to follow, and although off the beaten track it was not at all hard to find.

    Penny2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time. Fantastic hosts and a beautiful home. Exactly what we needed to de-stress.

    Charli-Anne2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place in beautiful surroundings. Really well put together place and feels a lot bigger than it actually is. If you like quirky with great amenities, this is definitely the place for you! Tony, who greeted us upon our arrival, was very gracious and gave some great tips about the local area. Cannot recommend this enough :)

    Laurence2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place, lovely wooded location, interesting architecture, comfortable and convenient. Excellent hosts, helpful and welcoming. All good!

    Ellis2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely woodlands retreat with generous and welcoming hosts. The accommodation was everything we expected it to be and a little bit more.

    Steve2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect hosts. Pat and Tony are very thoughtful and have a wonderful and fascinating home. We really loved having a separate space to ourselves and felt very comfortable. Thanks so much!

    Indulge in a luxury spa experience at a tranquil cottage. Follow a garden path from your decked balcony to a private wood-fired hot tub, sauna, hammock, outdoor shower and summerhouse. It's a great spot for stargazing by night and bird-watching by day. Cook in a modern well-equipped kitchen or have meals catered for you and served privately at your cosy cottage. Please note that as a customer service based business our price reflects that we set up the spa and hot tub for you at a time which suits (as long as we are on site) and that all logs for the hot tub and log burner are inclusive !
    The cottage is situated in the grounds of our own home. While it is entirely private we are on hand if you need anything and Mark can also provide private catering as a highly regarded chef sourcing the best local produce in Cornwall !
    The cottage is in a pretty rural hamlet surrounded by countryside near the market town of Launceston in the county of Cornwall.
  • Tracey and Mark were incredible hosts and the cottage was amazing. Every little detail in the cost place shows the love and thought that went into it which made a mini break better than we could have hoped for. The welcome basket was beautiful (especially the bread) and the spa was heavenly. We were gutted we hadn't booked longer but will definitely be going back. Thanks for a great stay.

    Lucie2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Place is even better than on pictures. We really enjoyed everything including easy communications, check in, welcome basket, cottage, spa and area. Highly recommend visiting and will definitely come back.

    Lera2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely, relaxing weekend; everything was perfect from the welcome with candles, a little basket with amazing bread, butter and the Cornish fudge! Netflix and the fire on and we really chilled out. Having the spa as well was a real treat, we felt thoroughly relaxed and it’s definitely the break we both needed. We will be back to explore more next time!

    Phoebe2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first Air BnB experience and we spent a magical couple of nights in Tracey and Marks beautiful cottage. We were made to feel very much at home (dog included!), and we felt taken care of from start to finish. Hot tub, sauna, and outdoor area is also amazing and we will definitely be returning for a summer escape! Can’t recommend this warm, friendly, welcoming sanctuary enough! x

    Alex2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay here! We would highly recommend :) We can’t wait to come back already. Relaxing, stylish and very well thought out this lovely, little cottage is everything and more that we wished for. The welcome basket, friendly welcome and spa all add to the overall stay.

    Carly2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little house. Very warm welcome and there for us whenever we had questions. A delicious 3 course meal delivered to our table for Taylor's birthday which was a excellent touch. A massive dvd collection & netflix which saw us through the stormy weekend well! Would highly recommend.

    Nicola2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • What a fantastic cottage! My husband and I loved staying there. So cosy by the fire! We will definitely be back. I could quite happily live there!

    Elinor2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my partner went for a relaxing weekend away and it was perfect. Felt really comfortable and came away feeling great

    The Pixie House is a romantic peaceful octagonal pine lodge in the garden of an old Farmhouse set in a quiet village location in the heart of the Cornish countryside. Great base for a get away from it all weekend, for walkers, nature lovers , visiting the coast, National Trust Gardens or The Eden Project.
    The Pixie House is a one roomed wood cabin. It is 17 feet wide and octagonal shaped. The walls are sloped so there is plenty of space once you are inside. There is a lovely comfy bed with rugs on the floor, fairy lighting all around the edge and a brighter light should you need it. There is a table to sit at and seating all around the edge, a bbq in the centre, an outside porch to leave shoes and coats and do any washing up. Outside there is also a compost toilet in the corner of the next field if you like the eco feel. Alternatively there is a bathroom just inside the farmhouse back door. There is a stone circle and moon garden outside where Hand Fasting weddings take place from time to time. You may hear owls hoot from the big old oak tree outside, swallows fly around in the summer and greater spotted wood peckers are regularly seen eating nuts from the bird table.
    The Pixie House is situated in a private secluded garden behind a farmhouse. The garden was a field. There are three call ducks roaming free. From the farmhouse The Pixie House cannot be seen as the planting scheme hides The Pixie House. It is in a small country village which has views of fields and woods and Bodmin Moor. Great area for walkers. Britains Ocean City Plymouth is about 45 mins drive away. It can also be reached by train from Liskeard or Gunnislake. Tavistock is fabulous market town about 45 minutes away. Also Truro with its Cathedral and lovely shops is about an hour away. The Eden Project is well worth a visit with its Tropical and Mediterranean biomes. Our local town is Callington where you can do your shopping and get fuel or a bus. It is a couple of miles away. There are many disused mines dotted around Cornwall. Cornwall is also well known for its stunning rugged coastline where wreckers and smugglers were once abundant. Jamaica Inn is not far from us the inspiration for Daphne Du Marier's famous book.
  • Lovely place, cosy place for a weekend away 😊

    Nathan2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is the most perfect romantic get away!! Absolutely beautiful and spacious lil cabin, super clean, warm and cosy. The bed is really comfortable, and the bbq fire in the middle is really unique and lovely. Had a fantastic get away with my partner, Lillian was a wonderful host. Thank you so much!

    Evelyn2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lilian is really welcoming and caring. A great host!

    Francesco2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect weekend away :) Lillian was very welcoming on arrival , made us feel very at home :) The hut it amazing , special weekend away! Romantic little setting for all weathers :) Lovely seeing the ducks and chickens walk past the windows :)

    Victoria2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lillian is a lovely woman & the pixie hut is a cute, cosy get away. The stove in the middle keeps the room extra toasty & the space is full of wonderful little nicknacks & decorations. The garden is gorgeous, full of ducks, chickens, squirrels & dogs pottering about, even the stars seem brighter down that neck of the woods. The walk to the loo was a bit nippy (We went in winter) but it gives you an excuse to scurry back through the door for a cuddle. Perfect rustic romantic get away!

    Jack2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Had such a lovely time!!! The pixie house is super cute and in a lovely part of the country.

    Paloma2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic! A great place to stay perfect for our handfasting ceremony x Thank you so much to Lillian for her hosting and hospitality! A perfect relaxing romantic break away from it all, we loved the ducks and the chickens! Didnt want to leave and will definatly be making a return visit xxx

    Jason2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • The Pixie House is a magical getaway, perfect for a romantic stay. Only a few 20 minute drive from Hurlers Stone Circle and The Cheesewring on Bodmin Moor. Lili was a super friendly host with sweet doggies, ducks and chickens. Will be back again :)

    NOT SUITABLE FOR ANYONE WITH MOBILITY/FITNESS ISSUES From Old Road through garden to self contained unit within our cottage. 2 minute walk to harbour and village. Kitchen/sitting room with electric woodburner. Spiral staircase leading to bedroom with ensuite loo/shower (macerater). A quiet and peaceful little pad set back from the village, just the sound of the Jordan river below, the owls in the wood opposite will serenade you at night and the song birds will be singing away in the morning
    PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE A LOT OF STEEP, IRREGULAR, WOBBLY SOMETIMES SLIPPERY STEPS FROM THE ROAD TO THE DOOR. ANYONE WITH SIGHT AND OR MOBILITY ISSUES MAY FIND THESE TOO DIFFICULT. THE PATH IS DARK AT NIGHT AND IN WINTER. INSIDE (WHICH WE HAVE SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS) IS A SPIRAL STAIRCASE WHICH AGAIN IS NARROW AND NOT IDEAL FOR EVERYONE. However! Tastefully and lovingly converted first two floors of our 250 year old cottage. A perfect bolthole to give guests private and cosy accommodation to relax in after a hard day on the beach or wandering around the harbour. . The en suite shower cubicle is a good, standard size, the shower room/area itself is rather 'compact' and due to this the basin is tiny (!) its the only one we could get to fit and only really big enough for tooth brushing and hand washing but thats about it. We sometimes use the steps past the entrance door ourselves to get to and from the village but we do our absolute best to respect guests privacy. PLEASE NOTE due to our location (you'll see why when you get here) there is no radio or TV signal (believe me we have tried) so bring a laptop as the WiFi is excellent! Most guests appreciate the peace and quiet. Please note check out is strictly 10am.
    Boscastle is very friendly and great fun. Pretty much zero crime. The beautiful coastal footpath that goes right around the Cornish coast is on the doorstep. In winter walking across a wild, windswept, deserted Cornish beach is one of the best things in the world to do, likewise when the sun shines, the temperature rises and the water is sparkling clear, its heaven. A stroll round the harbour is a must, see the famous blowhole, beautiful sea birds, the fishing boats going in and out on the tide and more often than not the seals put in an appearance too!
  • Wonderful secluded home to relax and explore locally. Spotlessly clean and quiet. Three pubs in walking distance as is the harbour.

    Nick2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage in fabulous location

    Frances2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for Boscastle, pubs, cafes and local walks. Bedroom is very warm and cosy after spending a day outside in the elements. Very clean and accurately described.

    Peter2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • From the moment we booked, Sacha was quick to answer any questions we had, especially with recommendations for dinner during the winter season. The place is wonderful - tucked away in a gorgeous, quiet location with its own private entrance. This is attached to the main property but you wouldn't have realised. Sacha & her husband made sure we were completely comfortable; popping by and introducing themselves when we arrived but other than that we were left to our own devices, which was perfect. The inside of the property was beautiful- an electric heater downstairs kept us nice and warm, and the unique design was not only very intuitively designed, but looked great tasteful. I would definitely recommend staying here, and would love to come back!

    Euan2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place.. Sacha is very helpful. Thank you

    Tara2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you a great stay. We really fell in love with Boscastle and couldn’t have wished for a more pleasant and relaxing stay. The cottage is full of charm and character and in a perfect location for us, wanting to explore and take in all the village had to offer. Hope to visit again in the summertime!

    Jack2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect hideaway a short walk up a hill from the very heart of Boscastle. Absolutely ideal couples retreat with everything you could possibly need.

    Laura2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay in this simple and cozy maisonette. Great location for coastal walks and pubs. Ideal quiet getaway for couples.

    The Water Mill is close to the North Cornwall coast, Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor on the banks of the river Tamar. The building is steeped in history and is named in the Doomsday Book. You’ll love the location, the ambiance, and the views. My place is good for couples. Peaceful and quiet with beautiful gardens to relax in, grazing for horses, fishing in the Tamar, picturesque countryside to explore and numerous places to visit nearby; you will really love it here.
    The Water Mill is a grade 2 listed building - last used to mill grain in 1943. The machinery and many of the tools used for milling remain in place. The accommodation combines modern facilities and absolute comfort, amidst the historic setting of the Mill.
    This is a rural community, peaceful and quiet.
  • Wow, this place is SPECIAL! If you are looking for a remote hideaway in stunning countryside but with all the mod cons then this is the place. We had 3 nights here and wish we had more. The Mill has been beautifully converted and has retained lots of the old charm of the building but is incredibly comfortable and well equipped. The kitchen has everything you need, like a home from home - or better! And the upstairs open plan living area is stunning. You have access to the main house's gardens and lots of lovely footpaths nearby leading to the river and local woodland. It's a truly magical spot and Maureen and Paul are really friendly and incredibly accommodating. We will certainly be returning again to Boyton Mill for more R&R time. Thank you sharing such a special place. Alex & Lanx

    Alexandra2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place to stay...great value for money....can’t recommend it enough.....

    John2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • The Watermill is very well restored to give a very cosy place.The upstairs is a very large space with the lounge and bedroom with a huge Queen cosy bed. The log burner is a plus but however not necessarily needed as heating very efficient. The kitchen has all equipment needed for your stay. Its location is quiet next to river Tamar & surrounded by fields & a small wood. Its ideal for couples who want to get away with great walks or an easy drive to Bodmin moor and Bude on northern coast of Cornwall.

    Viv2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

    Rob2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Louise2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time here. The house is cosy, well equipped and very peaceful. It's in a great location near to some beautiful beaches and coastal walks. Our dog loved it too! Maureen and Paul were very responsive and perfect hosts. Thank you so much :)

    Total isolation away from the rigours of the world at the moment!!! Situated on a stunningly located farm, our shepherds hut looks out over the Atlantic ocean. We are off grid, offer a deep comfy double bed, goose down duvet, vintage welsh blankets, cosy log burner and your own personal shower room and kitchen diner.
    The hut is fully insulated with sheep wool and has a log burner to keep you extra toasty on cool evenings! From our fields you can access the wonderful southwest coast path allowing you some fantastic walks with spectacular scenery!
    Cornwall is all about fabulous countryside, spectacular views and a wildness and remoteness that is fast disapearing elsewhere. We like to think that our farm can offer you direct access to all of the above, along with a little bit of the comfort!!
  • Wonderful experience in a wonderful location, highly recommend.

    Benjamin2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location made even more so by staying in this stylish and indie hut looked after by the amazing Caroline

    Dan2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place to stay for a few days. Pics do not do the location & views here justice, just amazing. Everything stated in previous reviews is spot on. Will definitely be coming back. Cheers.

    Gary2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a wonderful location, with the most welcoming and warm hosts. This is the second time I have been here as everything about it is epic. We where welcomed with some lovely pea soup when we arrived which was so lovely. Thank you

    Lizzie2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time in Caroline's shepherd's hut. We loved waking up in such a beautiful location every morning and visiting the stunning beaches on our doorstep! We loved the guidebook with personal recommendations of the best places to visit and eat, really helpful!

    Chloe2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • We returned to the shepherds hut for a second year after a great first experience. Our second break felt even more special and Caroline did everything we could possibly have hoped for to make our stay feel comfortable, relaxing and unique. The setting of the hut is spectacular and the views are unforgettable. If you enjoy being outdoors, taking in scenery and nature but enjoy having those important home comforts, then the Shepherds Hut offers the ideal getaway.

    Peter2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was great and simple. Lovely place with a beautiful view!Caroline was very friendly and helpful.

    Romain2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Honestly, the pictures don't even do the place justice. It's incredible! We sadly had terrible weather, but it's still a wonderful spot and we really caught up on our reading. The kitchen is perfectly equipped and the shower is even warm, so it's not a step down from a house. We didn't have a car, which I would recommend trying not to do, but with a bit of organising and great help from Caroline, we made it work. You can just stop the bus that runs directly by the road or walk the coast path. I would absolutely recommend a stay here!

    A traditional 2 bed detached Cornish stone barn, nestled on a tranquil rural farm on the outskirts of Altarnun near Launceston. This dog-friendly cottage overlooks unspoiled rolling hills and trees in never-ending and vivid shades of green, with cows and sheep often grazing in the distance. The perfect base for your British holiday exploring and walking in the Cornwall and Devon countryside, enjoying the stunning beaches or visiting our famous local attractions such as The Eden Project.
    Entering through the delightful barn door, you’ll be welcomed by an open-plan country kitchen/diner with high-end appliances and luxurious stone tile flooring. The cosy lounge area with comfortable sofas is perfect for watching the Freeview and Chromecast enabled flat-screen TV, enjoying the stunning views through the windows, or snuggling up in-front of the magnificent large log fire. Upstairs are 2 large double bedrooms complete with quality French bedding, Egyptian cotton towels and USB ports for charging your devices. Both rooms have modern bathrooms and include powerful showers and a bath, with a large window overlooking the gorgeous countryside view. Outside you can unwind on the private patio and fenced garden and watch the cows and sheep graze in the silent fields, collect fresh free-range eggs from our chickens, cook dinner on the charcoal BBQ, or stargaze at the uninterrupted and majestic Cornish sky.
    Situated on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Altarnun, a beautiful church, independent shop, quaint tea rooms and historic pub are all a stone-throw away. This cottage is in the ideal location for walkers and is dog friendly. The expansive Bodmin Moor is just 15 minutes’ away, a remarkable area of outstanding natural beauty with history dating back 10,000 years and as shown in BBC’s Poldark. It includes the spectacular Roughtor and highest point in Cornwall, Brown Willy. The Moor is also home to the world-famous Jamaica Inn, a coaching inn built in 1750 which is associated with smuggling and the Daphne du Maurier novel. North Cornwall’s rugged coastline is a short drive in the car and the stunning fishing ports of Boscastle, Padstow and Port Isaac made famous by Doc Martin are not far. For cyclists we are in an ideal location for the 18-mile Camel Trail. The Eden Project is only 30 minutes away and Cornish attractions such as Lost Gardens of Heligan and Lands End can easily be visited within a day. More locally we are just 12 minutes from the ancient capital of Cornwall, Launceston. With narrow stone-cobbled streets, this picturesque town is home to a Castle, Steam Railway, Golf Course and Otter Sanctuary. Amazing places to eat include the Rising Sun (7 mins) and The Springer Spaniel (17 mins), with the King’s Head pub offering fantastic food and drink all day is just a stone throw away.
  • We stayed with Barbara on our 'mini' moon and had a brilliant time The barn has been converted to a very high standard, the downstairs space easily accommodates 4 adults, the kitchen fully equipped, bedrooms with high quality bedding and luxury towels. 1 bedroom has the ensuite shower room, and the other bedroom has the bathroom, with full size bath, just across the hallway. Both much bigger than they look in the pictures. All in all amazing accommodation, certainly the best that we have stayed in. Barbara greeted us on arrival, gave us a few pointers, then left us alone to get on, but was there if we needed her, which is really what you need. She very kindly accepted our shopping delivery, put it all away for us, and even left us a lovely bottle of fizz for our arrival drinks!! In terms of location, pretty perfect for both coasts....day 1 we did the north coast, Boscastle, tintagel and port issac and day 2 the south, fowey and Polperro. Both within 30/40 minutes drive. There is a pub in the village, in walking distance, that does good reasonably priced pub food, and a great sunday roast!! We will be going back for sure!!!!

    Julie2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is stunning! We spent the weekend here with for a long overdue get together with friends. We were met with a lovely welcome by the host. The barn is fully equipped with everything you require. An ideal layout with the bedrooms and separate bathrooms. It's in a beautiful setting and was really cosy especially with the log burner! It exceeded our expectations and I would 100% recommend staying here.

    Lara And Bert2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara is an amazing host. She does everything that she can to ensure a comfortable stay. Her place is lovely, and perfect for couples. It has two double bedrooms so can accommodate others too. If you are looking for a quiet break with great walks on the doorstep and a fabulous host who lives next door, then this is for you.

  • The Cottage is beautiful, with wonderful views over the countryside and in a great location. Barbara was a super host and Deb and I would love to return. Tim

  • Barbara was a wonderful host, this stay was booked as a surprise weekend anyway for my Dad’s 50th, and nothing was too much to ask! My parents had a wonderful time, and absolutely loved the property! Thank you again!

    Hannah2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here! The cottage is absolutely lovely, the fire is dreamy, it has everything you need, everything is comfy and it’s a really clean tidy space. The views from the cottage are lovely and in an ideal spot for exploring. Our dogs had a great time - especially in front of the fire! Thank you! Barbara is a lovely host too - homemade dog treats (which went down a storm) and scones on arrival.

    Abbie2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • A great hideaway with a great host. Barbara was on hand whenever we needed and very helpful from start to finish. I cannot recommend this cosy cottage enough. A must for anyone looking to getaway to a relaxing and peaceful space.

    Welcome to Rosemoor Lodge. Our property is located on the edge of Bodmin Moor, in the beautiful village of Altarnun, at the heart of Cornwall and all the major tourist attractions within the county and are easily accessible as are those within Devon, should you wish to cross the border! The lodge was designed to have as little impact on the environment as possible, with low energy lighting, heating and hot water 24 hours a day, provided by Ground Source heat pumps and solar top up on the roof.
    We built Rosemoor House in 1998 and Rosemoor Lodge came as a slow and steady extension in 2006. The Lodge itself is completely self-sufficient and heats itself through an underground source heat pump. Throughout the day it gets its electric from the solar panels on the roof. The bedroom and en-suite of the Lodge is submerged under our upper garden, which creates an enigmatic feel to the building from the outside. There is no Wi Fi access within the property except for a hotspot which we believe is a good thing to enable our quests to have a complete break from the internet. We welcome well behaved pets.
    The Area- Altarnun previously known as ‘Altarnon' is a popular tourist destination. The church itself dates back to the Norman era and is commonly known as the Cathedral of the Moor, definitely one to explore. Doc Martin filmed a wedding episode in the village in 2014, and if you're a Doc Martin fan they film it just a 20-minute drive up the road in Port Isaac, a quaint little fishing village with plenty of character.
  • Amazing modern stylish place to stay. It’s tucked away in a typical Cornish village but central for all surrounding places to visit. Jane and her husband were superb hosts providing us with lots of suggestions and hints for places to visit. The little touches were lovely on arrival. We would definitely consider visiting again in the future

    Hawks House is located 10 miles from Crackington Haven, which is included in the best surfing beaches in England and was recommended by the Marine Conservation Society in its Good Beach Guide. The scenery in the beach area of the surrounding majestic cliffs is almost un-rivalled. At high tide, the beach is a mass of quartz-veined pebbles and large boulders but at low tide, it reveals an expanse of sand and many rock pools. Only the road separates the sea from a couple of beach shops, two superb beach cafes and a public house with a restaurant and fantastic terrace.Fifteen minutes further up the coast is Bude, a popular tourist destination for both its surfing and fantastic family beaches in Widemouth Bay. The watchful eye of the RNLI lifeguards allows for some of the best surfing in the world alongside swimming and a whole host of water-based activities. Bude today is a lovely sea-side town, the main shopping streets and inter-connecting alleyways play host to a wide range of locally owned shops, restaurants and pubs. There are boutiques, shoes, arts & crafts, jewellery, hand-made gifts and souvenirs.A few miles inland is Bodmin Moor, one of Cornwall's designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cornwall at its wildest and rich in ancient history, Bodmin Moor stretches for 30 miles through the heart of the County of Cornwall and offers spectacular walking and horse riding. With easy access to the both the A30 and the Atlantic Highway you can quickly travel up and down the South-West to enjoy some of the larger tourist attractions that Devon and Cornwall have to offer.To the west lies the stunning and infamous village of Boscastle, it is a tiny port set in a narrow ravine, the town came into prominence recently as a result of terrible floods in the summer of 2004. In the village there is a pottery, a museum of witchcraft and several gift shops. A footpath to the left of the quayside will take you to the 'Lookout' which is a wonderful vantage point from which to view the rugged coastline. Boscastle was once a favourite meeting place of the author Thomas Hardy, and is the location for one of his novels 'A Pair of Blue Eyes'. Boat trips can be taken from the harbour as far as Long Island, where during the breeding season you may see razorbills, puffins & guillemots. There is a demanding 7 mile coastal path walk between Boscastle and Crackington Haven. There are several attractions along this stretch of coast including Strangles beach at the bottom of a large landslip with a rock arch the Northern Door. Just south of here is High Cliff which is the highest point on the Cornish coast path. Don't forget to visit Pentargon inlet which has an imposing waterfall that cascades down to the sea below.Trethevy is a delightful hamlet, equidistant from Boscastle and Tintagel and has a history which may well go back to 250 AD when a granite post was inscribed with C DOMI N GALLO ET VOLUS – ‘For the Emperor Caesars our lords Gallus and Volusian' this can now be found outside St Piran a former monastery and now private residence, Trethevy is also home to St Nectans Glen a beautiful valley where the River Trevillet has carved its way through the slate and formed a beautiful 60' waterfall.Brown Willy and Roughtor are two fantastic tors and excellent walks, being the highest points in Cornwall the views are stupendous. Bowithick is also worth a visit to marvel at it's quirky bridge and history that dates back to the Domesday book.On Bodmin Moor, Dozmary pond is thought to contain Arthur's Excalibur, and Merlin is thought to be still found walking under Tintagel Island. Camelford is a great centre for touring, walking, fishing, swimming or surfing holidays. The town is steeped in history and has excellent shopping and sporting facilities. Port Isaac is the location of the televisions series Poldark and more recently Doc Martin, as well as being a gorgeous working fishing village. Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book. The famous Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths for 18 miles, providing the whole family with a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge, and out to Padstow where you can sample Rick Steins famous Fish and Chips. The market town of Launceston was the historic capital of Cornwall and well worth a visit to see the church of St Mary Magdelene, with granite carvings, unusual among Cornish churches, the Norman Castle and a wide variety of independent shops and cafes.
  • Such a lovely place which gives you plenty of options to explore Cornwall!

    Dug2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful cottage and we had a fantastic break here with our little black lab Milly. The cottage is very nicely done and the log burner is a bonus. Getting back after a cold and windy day out to just chill in front of the fire with a drink or two in the evening was just perfect. Definitely a perfect place to stay for two (and a dog).

    Dan2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Arrived on a cold February evening to find the fire alight and fresh flowers on the table. Beautiful barn conversation with lovely furnishings and everything needed for a peaceful and relaxing stay. Great WiFi connection. Lovely coastal and inland walks just a few minutes walk away. Would love to return, thank you!

    Tricia2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

  • This is a lovely little cottage for a couple! Went here for New Year’s Eve with my partner and it was a lovely cosy stay. Really recommend anyone looking for a relaxed short break.

    Cheryl2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • I booked a weekend stay at Hawks house as a surprise for my partners birthday and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s set in a beautiful, peaceful location with lots of stunning beaches and fishing towns close by. I received quick responses from Richard & the house was stunning inside. Highly recommend!

    Alice2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • A little gem! We had a beautiful stay at Hawks House. The cottage has been very thoughtfully renovated and is cosy and homely with everything you need. The log burner was already on when we arrived which was a lovely touch. The grounds are beautiful and such a peaceful setting. We did not want to leave and will absolutely be returning.

    Rebecca2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a delightful one week stay at Hawks House. The cottage was warm and welcoming and the wood burner was a lovely addition for some colder autumn nights. The place was characterful, spotlessly clean and with good amenities. The location allows the feeling of truly being 'away from it all', whilst actually being a short drive from beaches, the coastal path and numerous towns. From the front door there are also numerous walks on offer, including to the nearby pub (around 30 minutes).

    My place, a perfect base for exploring North Cornwall just off the A39 is close to Bodmin Moor, the Camel Trail for cycling, the North Devon and Cornwall sections of the South West Coastal Path for hiking and Surfing Beaches like Polzeath and Bude. Easy access to famous locations from television like Port Isaac and Jamaica Inn. There are loads of amazing small farm shops and tea rooms as well as larger destinations like Padstow near by with Rick Steins fish and chips.
    The accommodation comprises one double bedroom, a lounge/dinner with freeview television and wifi. A fully equipped newly fitted kitchen with dishwasher. A brand new shower room with underfloor heating. The garden is large and enclosed with patio table and chairs. There is a driveway for off road parking and access to our field for guests with dogs. Also free eggs from our pet chickens (as pictured), and a cream tea on arrival, with enough milk, sugar and teabags to get you started. You'll love my place because of the amazing views up to Rough Tor, the easy access to the whole of North Cornwall and the enclosed garden suitable for dogs. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and furry friends (pets).
    The immediate neighbourhood is a small hamlet of around 10 houses and farms, and although the A39 runs through it, the area is very rural and surrounded be fields. Davidstow with its famous creamery is one mile to the east and Camelford with its free parking, shops, pubs and petrol station three miles to the west. Rough Tor is five miles away, the turning is on the left on the way to Camelford, Hilltop Cafe/Farm shop is two miles away, the turning is on the right on the way to Camelford.

  • Ashley's little cottage has everything you could need for a your stay and is excellent value for money. Lovely and clean and the bed is super comfy! Nice and warm on a cold day with the ability to control the thermostat. Enclosed garden is ideal for dogs and would be a lovely place to sit on a nice day! Lots of towels and loo roll provided, as well as washing up liquid, cooking oil, teabags (we bought our own but needn't have!) and even scones and jam! Couldn't ask for more. Five minute drive to a local town with a few pubs/restaurants (recommend the pub grub at the Masons Arms!), nice little river walk, Spar shop if you've forgotten anything. We plan to return to Hilltop Cottage at the same time next year!

    Jay2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

  • Perfect cosy space. Cream tea on arrival is incredibly thoughtful. The biggest scones I've ever eaten! The kitchen was equipped with absolutely everything you could need. The garden is a great big space for the dogs. Only a short drive to the moors where they had the most incredible walks. Bed was super comfortable. Thank you Ashley will definitely be back. Xx

There was a miscommunication about the Wi-Fi and I was not able to use it at all it was problematic for me. I do know that they will be getting fiber optic later but if you need Wi-Fi until then definitely check with them.

    Dozmary Pool is one of the sites that lay claim to be the home of the Lady of the Lake, where King Arthur rowed out to meet her and receive Excalibur, it is also thought to be where Sir Bedeveer returned Excalibur when King Arthur lay dying after the battle of Camlaan. Whatever the truth it is a stunning spot! King Arthurs influence stretches all the way to Tintagel where the castle could have been the legendary Camelot and the finding of 'Arthurs Stone' in 1998 has only fuelled these myths. - Merlin is thought to be still found walking under Tintagel Island.North Cornwall is as famous for its rugged coastline as it is for its surfing. You can hire surf boards and equipment from Polzeath, up as far as Bude and Widemouth Bay. Boscastle is the only natural harbour for 20 miles and at low tides and certain weather conditions you can find a blowhole at the mouth of the harbour. Port Isaac is the location of the televisions series Poldark and more recently Doc Martin, as well as being a gorgeous working fishing village.The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Steins empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have three properties nearby Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell.Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book. The famous Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths for 18 miles, providing the whole family with a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge, and out to Padstow where you can sample Rick Steins famous Fish and Chips. The market town of Launceston is the capital of Cornwall and well worth a visit to see the church of St Mary Magdelene, with granite carvings, unusual among Cornish churches.
  • Great host. Our stay was just what we wanted ,nice friendly people and even gave us some milk when we arrived without any. Very peaceful and loved the horses in the field. Great for walks and fishing . Jamaica Inn just down the road if we fancied a pint or 2. Will be back . The dog loved it

  • The property is well equipped, very clean and the hosts Brian and Fran were warm and welcoming. I was a little put off after booking (the property is managed by an intermediary agency who's contact was professional but minimal) as I didn't receive the email they thought they'd sent with directions - and you will need these as Google maps doesn't recognise the farm's address. Directions weren't super clear even then, arriving after dark I drove up the wrong lane first (do make sure you wait for the gate with the big farm sign on it). But once I got in contact with the actual owners, everything was different. Fran and Brian went out of their way to welcome me, providing me with fresh farm eggs and bread for breakfast when, due to travel problems, I arrived several hours late into the evening (Dozmary View is a remote place so make sure you come with food, the nearest shop is a few miles away), they lent me a couple of things I'd forgotten and were very friendly, without being intrusive. The view from Brown Gelly, a walk through the farm and up the hill, is superb. It is a working farm so there are a couple of gates to open (and shut!) on driving in and out and dogs that bark on arrival, but generally it is an extremely peaceful place, and very warm and cosy at the start of November when I visited. I'd strongly recommend it.

    Trevadlock Manor is in an extremely convenient location, very easily reached by car, only a few minutes south of the A30, just west of Launceston, just 45 minutes from the M5 at Exeter. The scenery is quite breathtaking and you will be absorbed as soon as you have left the main road into the beauty of this edge of moorland location. A really central location in Cornwall, you have so much to see within easy reach. The brilliant beaches at Trebarwith Strand, Crackington Haven and Widemouth Bay are just over 30 minutes drive to the north and the quintessential Cornish harbour town of Looe is 40 minutes to the south. The wilds of Bodmin Moor are on your doorstep and Dartmoor is around 45 minutes away should you wish to cross the border.The beautiful historic market town of Launceston lies just across the border from Devon and was once the capital of Cornwall. With rolling countryside, castle ruins and plenty of shops and nearby attractions, it's a fantastic base for exploring North Cornwall. Launceston was the ancient capital of Cornwall and has been a market town since the time of the Normans. It still possesses a medieval south gate and castle ruins. Due to its position just a mile west of the River Tamar, it borders Devon and is often referred to as the 'gateway to Cornwall'. The church of St Mary Magdelene is well worth a visit for its unusual granite carvings and a ghoul is said to haunt the churchyard. There are many strange tales around this area of Cornwall. Apparently south of Launceston at Hingston Down there is buried treasure, the ghost of Dorothy Dingley has been seen many times in Botathon, and in nearby Yeolmbridge the Wild Hunt may be seen by those crossing the bridge. But those who see this twice will not live to tell the tale!Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall's Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall's highest point, the heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwall's stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families. The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Stein's empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have three properties nearby: Cothele, Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Morwhellham Quay is also a fascinating place to visit, a "living" museum providing a wonderful day out.
  • We had a lovely week at The Granary. A freshly made cake left for us, baked by Dolly, was an unexpected welcome! The surroundings are idyllic - an orchard, fields of sheep and horses , pretty flowers and everything beautifully cared for. The Granary is a very warm and comfortable place to stay. We used the wood burning stove although the heating is very efficient. A great shower and the most comfortable beds ever made this a very relaxing week for us. The boys enjoyed the games room which is a great space for everyone. I thoroughly recommend Travadlock Manor and hope to visit again .

    Katrina2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • What a delightful place to stay! Quiet, great facilities and close ( for us) to all of Cornwall. I say that as we are used to traveling long distances. Great extras in welcome cake and tourist information. Very comfortable.

  • Great thanks

    Liza2018-10-27T00:00:00Z

    Danielle2018-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place to stay, easy to find and great road connections for travelling around beautiful Cornwall. The property was clean, comfortable and a great place to relax after long days out and about. Thanks!

Kingfishers can sometimes be seen flitting along the stream searching for a quick meal.The cottage is within 8 miles of the stunning north Cornwall coastline, hauntingly beautiful beaches exposed as the tide drops away from pebbled coves. There are some beautiful coastal walks along the cliff top paths revealing the rugged headlands being battered by Atlantic waves and there are also plenty of excellent surf spots within easy reach. Nearby, Wadebridge, one of north Cornwall's main market towns and gateway to the Camel Trail, is a short drive away where you can find many boutique shops, restaurants and pubs. Slightly further afield is Port Isaac, where Doc Martin is filmed, and Bude which is a vibrant town with supermarkets and many stunning restaurants and pubs.

    Idyllically situated on a river bank in a small and private complex, tucked away in the Cornish countryside about 7 miles from the rugged North Cornwall coast, with its beautiful tors, coves and beaches.This location brings all that Cornwall has to offer within easy reach. Walkers, Hikers and Cyclists are spoilt for choice of footpaths, such as ‘The Saints Way' and the Coastal Path ranging both north and south. Alternatively up Roughtor onto Bodmin moor, and see the remains of its pre-historic settlements.Or just drive to the coast, for a boat/sea-fishing trip from Boscastle and Padstow. See nearby Port Isaac where Doc Martin is filmed. Visit the locations used in the filming of Poldark. Or to Tintagel and its castle. To the north Bude and Clovelly, to the South Newquay, St Ives, Lands-end, Porthcurno the Minack Theatre, St Michaels Mount and much, much more.Camelford is an ancient market town situated on the River Camel. Its name was believed to have been a contraction of 'Camalanford' from 'cam' meaning crooked, 'alan' meaning beautiful and ford. The town lies on the edge of Bodmin Moor and is about 6 miles inland from the rugged North Cornwall coast. Legend has it that King Arthur and his Knights are part of cornish history, and that Camelford was the 'Camelot' of legend. Further up the coast, towards England, are the towns of Tintagel, Boscastle, Crackington Haven and Bude while to the South West are Port Isaac, Polzeath, Wadbridge and Padstow. All of these have excellent pubs and restaurants and of course you are never far away from a glorious sandy beach (quite a few of which allow dogs all year round!) Boscastle is a tiny port set in a narrow ravine, the town came into prominence recently as a result of terrible floods in the summer of 2004. In the village there is a pottery, a museum of witchcraft and several gift shops. A footpath to the left of the quayside will take you to the 'Lookout' which is a wonderful vantage point from which to view the rugged coastline.Boscastle was once a favourite meeting place of the author Thomas Hardy, and is the location for one of his novels 'A Pair of Blue Eyes'. Boat trips can be taken from the harbour as far as Long Island, where during the breeding season you may see razorbills, puffins & guillemots. There is a demanding 7 mile coastal path walk between Boscastle and Crackington Haven. There are several attractions along this stretch of coast including Strangles beach at the bottom of a large landslip with a rock arch the Northern Door. Just south of here is High Cliff which is the highest point on the Cornish coast path. Don't forget to visit Pentargon inlet which has an imposing waterfall that cascades down to the sea below.On Bodmin Moor, Dozmary pond is thought to contain Arthur's Excalibur, and Merlin is thought to be still found walking under Tintagel Island. Camelford is a great centre for touring, walking, fishing, swimming or surfing holidays. The town is steeped in history and has excellent shopping and sporting facilities. Port Isaac is the location of the televisions series Poldark and more recently Doc Martin, as well as being a gorgeous working fishing village. Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book. The famous Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths for 18 miles, providing the whole family with a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge, and out to Padstow where you can sample Rick Steins famous Fish and Chips. The market town of Launceston is the capital of Cornwall and well worth a visit to see the church of St Mary Magdelene, with granite carvings, unusual among Cornish churches.

The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families. The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Stein's empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have three properties nearby: Cothele, Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Morwhellham Quay is also a fascinating place to visit, a "living" museum providing a wonderful day out.
  • All I need to say is it was PERFECT in every respect.

    Charlotte2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Sunny View is beautiful. Absolutely sparkling clean and everything you could want. Maurice and Susan were so welcoming! We arrived late at night and Susan was there to greet us to show us around. Very thoughtful. Our stay at Sunny View was nothing short of perfect!

    Rachel2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful bungalow with an enclosed safe garden for our dog for a nice relaxing weekend. Lovely homely touches of clotted cream, milk and bread on arrival and extra treats for our dog. We made the most of visiting the local area and didn’t let the weather stop us. Tintagel is so close by and St Nectans glen for a wonderful and magical walk. Can revoke d the red post inn in bude for an evening meal. The children loved having their own room and playing the games in the living room. We would definitely recommend it for a lovely family break. Thank you x

    Philippa2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • For a last minute decision to go away we couldn't have landed on our feet any better!! Met at the door, even after 10 at night, to a warm welcoming cottage it was a great clean and modern space to chill out at. Easy access to the coast and allowing us to visit Tintagel castle options were a plenty. Storage for bikes and boards is available and plenty of space for the dog to run round outside in a safe place. The tea, coffee and milk were very much appreciated in the morning. A wonderful spot, very comfy, very well priced! Thank you very much

    Bethan2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We were greeted by Maurice who showed us around and we were very pleased we had chosen to stay at the Sunny View Lodge! There were lots of thoughtful touches including fresh bread, eggs, butter, jam, juice and milk. The Lodge had absolutely everything you need for a long or short stay. We were particularly impressed with how clean and tidy the Lodge was. It has been very well thought out and feels very homely and cosy. The location was ideal for a quiet getaway as you cannot hear a thing day or night! Maurice and Susan are incredible hosts and truly go above and beyond for their guests! We would definitely recommend and would love to stay here again!

    Oliver2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Maurice and Susan are delightful hosts and I thoroughly enjoyed my brief 2 night stay. They seemed to have thought of everything and I arrived to find Sunny View lovely and warm and so welcoming. Fresh bread, butter, eggs, juice, jam and clotted cream for me and comfy beds, bowls, towels and treats for my 2 dogs. Maurice even added some extra meshing to the bottom of the front gates so my escape artist terriers couldn't do a runner 😀. The whole place was sparkling clean and lots of lovely little touches. Super smart TVs and a selection of books and games. I can highly recommend Sunny View and I'll be returning again next year. Thank you Maurice and Susan.

    Caroline2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely long weekend with our two dogs. Susan and Maurice were so helpful and very attentive, the bungalow was very clean and they had left some really thoughtful touches (dog bowls/bed/biscuits) as well as fresh bread, milk etc. Lovely little bolt hole from the rain!

    North Petherwin, England, United Kingdom

    Self contained detached apartment with spectacular views over the north Cornish coast. The flat offers all the amenities for self catering. It is a few minutes walk from the coast path and down to the harbour at Boscastle. Pub and convenience shop close by with other shops and restaurants in the village. Well behaved dogs welcome. Separate space available for drying wet gear, boots and dogs! Lovely garden and spectacular sunsets over the sea.
    The apartment is totally self contained with a double bedroom, open plan kitchen and sitting room with a double sofa bed* and a bathroom. As it is self-catering, the kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge, microwave, full size cooker , toaster and electric kettle. The bathroom has a bath with a shower over it which appears small but has good water pressure offering a decent shower. *The apartment is set up for two people to share the double bed, however, if you wish to use the sofa bed as well as the double bed, please let me know when you book. There is a small additional fee for the extra laundry of £10.00. Additional people can be accommodated for an extra fee. We are happy to welcome your dog and have a large garden space for you to use for yourselves and your dog - the sunsets are often spectacular and can be easily viewed from the garden seating. We have a space below the apartment for drying off wet clothing and for drying off dogs. You are welcome to use this to leave walking boots and other equipment such as surf boards. There is also freezer which can be used at your request. We are adjacent to the footpath leading over the hill to St Nectan's Glen and onwards to Rocky Valley. Our location is ideal also for quick access via a footpath and across one road to the coastal path. There are bus stops close by for buses to Tintagel, Bude and Wadebridge. Paradise Road is a quiet small road it is lit by street lights at both ends and we provide a wind up torch for the middle part in case you decide to go out in the evening. The walk to the harbour is very pretty - just along this road and down the old High Street, passing by many typical Cornish properties and winding down the the harbour.
    We overlook the sea and the Lookout point which is a feature of the North Cornish coast. There is a good view of the Church and parts of the village. Our main enjoyment is the short walk to the cliff top at Forrabury and the walks around the "stitches" which overlook the harbour and from there you can walk to the village. Behind us are fields with livestock and views across towards Bude and on a clear day Lundy Island. We are close to a convenience shop which although small has a very good selection of fresh goods and speciality foods. Our nearest pub which offers food all year round is a short walk along Paradise Road with many other eating places in the village and harbour area.
  • Lovely Apartment with an incredible view of Boscastle and the coast! Very clean and well presented, touching distance to all the local coastal walking routes. Communication with Helen was great, very clear instructions could not have asked for more, highly recommend!!

    Michael2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment had everything we needed and was in perfect location - close to coastal walks, right by a bus stop but not quite on a main road, good pub nearby and amazing views of the sea!

    Agne2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place with amazing views.

    Ben2020-02-22T00:00:00Z

Thank you helen

(but please see our House Rules before booking, and note there is an additional one off £20 charge when bringing pets ). The Cottage is decorated with a bright modern feel whilst keeping its heritage, like the local Cornish Slate Floors & Large Granite Fireplace complete with Clome oven (Not for use). Its modest size is part of its charm, with a clever use of space throughout, the cottage stays cool in the summer months and with the fire roaring during the winter its probably one the cosiest places in Cornwall... hence the name Klys. The lounge/diner & Kitchen is all open plan again giving the cottage a great use of space. The kitchen is fitted with double oven, hob, fridge, freezer, microwave & juicer and just about everything you will ever need. The bedrooms are bright & Airy with Kingsize and Single beds respectively, both enjoying wardrobe space and drawers. The lounge/diner & Kitchen is open plan, the bathroom & utility is a couple of steps down on the ground level.

We provide all Bed-linen and towels & fuel for the multi-fuel stove including a limited number of logs and plenty of coal. We hope to provide everything you will need on your stay, but if you have any special requirements please let us know in advance and we will aim to do our best.
    Klys Cottage is in the picturesque village of St Breward on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Ancient woodlands, meandering rivers, vast open moorland, famous Cornish peaks & its much celebrated coastline surround the property. It's a perfect base for hiking, dog Walking, cycling or just simply to watch the sunsets.
  • Loved staying at the cottage! Wayne is a really good host and was easy to communicate with. We appreciated the fire on arrival and the thoughtful gifts of processco and a bottle of beer. Which my partner said was one of the best beers he has had! It was a good location to stay in cornwall as everywhere was really accessible. The cottage is lovely and homely.

    Amy2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the cottage for 5 nights whilst exploring Cornwall and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The weather was typically inclement but the cottage provided a safe and comfortable haven. The facilities at the cottage are great and the bed is one of the comfiest I've had the pleasure of sleeping in. 100% would stay again.

    Neil2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our time spent in this beautiful cottage. It's so homely and romantic, with lots of thoughtful detail. It's located in a lovely village and is an ideal base for exploring north Cornwall. Wayne was a brilliant host, going above and beyond to help us when we ran into some problems. We can't recommend this cottage enough.

    Nicola2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very sweet little cottage in a stunning area. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the bed especially comfortable. The fire was especially welcome in February! Check in and out was easy and convenient times and Wayne went above and beyond to make sure he stayed in contact and checked in on us when we had a power cut due to the storms. A great base, lovely cosy few days away!

    Gwennan2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little get away in the countryside of Cornwall, a lovely cosy house with everything you need. The fire and the bath made that extra homely feel.

    Amber2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Wayne's place is really a lovely gem of a cottage. It's in a small village just at the edge of Bodmin moor which makes it well positioned to explore the entire county of Cornwall. It is a traditional stone cottage so there's a few quirks- relying on stove for heating, narrow steep stairs, etc. From an accessibility point of view, there's definitely challenges, with stairs down to the front door, stairs down to the bathroom (below ground floor), and stairs up to the bedroom. All in all we found the cottage to be a really lovely, romantic, cosy getaway spot for a few days. Highly recommended.

    Adam + Mikayla2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable, stylish cottage with a great location for exploring Bodmin Moor and beyond. Can totally recommend!

    Daniel2020-02-03T00:00:00Z

    My Maisonette is a listed building and on 2 levels. It's a little quirky and in the middle of town with minutes walk to everything you could need - banks, library, pubs, bakeries, butchers, coffee shops, cafes, takeaways, shops. There is a castle, free museum and surrounded by countryside. Launceston is just off the A30. DIY breakfast included. I also have a double room listed in this property which may be booked during your stay, therefore you could be sharing the facilities with other guests.
    I provide a DIY breakfast with several options. Guests may also cook themselves eggs if they wish. Also, feel free to bring in a takeaway for evening meals or use my kitchen facilities to cook yourself something. No shower. BATH ONLY.
  • I had the single room for the evening and my stay was very pleasant. Victoria is a very friendly and conscientious host and made me feel right at home. The town house has character and is warm and inviting. The only minor drawback is the arrangement of the bathroom being upstairs and off from her bedroom (which also doesn't have a shower but this is expected as it's stated on the listing page) so I was mindful of not waking her when running the bath in the morning (!)

    Sarah2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely lovely, very comfy place. Victoria and her partner Richard are both very nice and helpful. Highly recommend staying here.

    Hannah2019-12-15T00:00:00Z

    Mark2019-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • Victoria’s place is fantastic with lots of character. It was a relaxing place to stay for a work trip. Launceston is a quaint and safe place and it would be great for a leisure trip too if you want to be in the country. Plymouth is about one hours bus journey away via the 12 bus. Check in was made easy with the directions provided via Airbnb messaging beforehand and she waited for me when the train was delayed which I really appreciated. Victoria is a pleasant and calm character whose hospitality put me right at ease. The single room was pretty and just the right size for one person. Noise filtering from outside was moderate. I didn’t have to use earplugs. The breakfast was great, cereals were in airtight containers with the cardboard cutout of names on them so you knew what you were eating, could look up ingredients and they didn’t go soggy. There was bread, porridge, teas and cafetiere provided for coffee. She told me I could use the kitchen to cook if I wanted. I didn’t use this, but it was nice to know. Victoria had offered to get dairy free milk which was thoughtful. I was okay buying this. There’s a Co-op, a large Tesco and a few artisan coffee shops closeby within a 14 minute walking distance at most. Whilst I was there for 4 nights the Wifi cut out just once, I was shown how to reconnect this and it was easy to fix. The TV had been unavailable during my stay, this didn’t bother me as there are plenty of interesting and quirky books to read and Wifi. There’s only a bath here with no shower. I was expecting this from the description. It was relaxing to soak in it at night after work. After a 4 night stay, I left Victoria’s feeling recharged and ready for the next destination.

    Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall's Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall's highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwall's stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families. The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Steins empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have a number of properties nearby - Lanhydrock House, Trerice, Cotehele and Antony (used for Disney's Alice in Wonderland), Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Domesday Book.To the east lies the Tamar Valley which is a stunning, quiet, picturesque region with some beautiful villages including Calstock with its impressive Viaduct dominating the village, Calstock Quay was originally used for transportation of tin as there is a deep water navigable channel at the top of the tides, although the construction of the Tamar Valley Railway in the early 20th century led to most cargo being transported by rail. Further up stream is Morwellham Quay with its fantastic open air museum, Morwellham Quay has been awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO, the cultural arm of the UN, and is part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape. Tavistock is just over the border in Devon, an ancient stannary and market town on the edge of Dartmoor, it has a wealth of fine pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and tourist attractions including ruins of a Benedictine Abbey which was founded in 961. Plymouth has the National Marine Aquarium and host the National Firework Competition on the Hoe over two nights in August.The beautiful historic market town of Launceston lies just across the border from Devon and was once the capital of Cornwall. With rolling countryside, castle ruins and plenty of shops and nearby attractions, it's a fantastic base for exploring North Cornwall. Launceston was the ancient capital of Cornwall and has been a market town since the time of the Normans. It still possesses a medieval south gate and castle ruins. Due to its position just a mile west of the River Tamar, it borders Devon and is often referred to as the 'gateway to Cornwall'. The church of St Mary Magdelene is well worth a visit for its unusual granite carvings and a ghoul is said to haunt the churchyard. Closer to home, the Parish of North Hill and Bodmin Moor area feature in several of E V Thompson's novels. Local amenities:- Sterts open air theatre with varied programs through the summer, Trethorne Leisure Farm, Launceston indoor skate, scooter and BMX park with cafe and soft play area. Jamaica Inn 7 miles, Tintagel 20 miles, Tavistock 16 miles, Looe 18 miles making the north and south coasts equidistant at approx. 20 miles.
  • What an amazing place this is! We had a wonderful long weekend at Lanxton Barn, which exceeded our expectations! The barn is amazing, so clean and wonderfully decorated, and there is so much space! There were 9 of us in our party - 3 couples each with a child under 2 - and the barn catered for us all. Everything you could want for young children and their safety (stair gate, high chairs, travel cot) with loads of space for them to run around. And for the adults there's a pool table, air hockey, copious amounts of board games and books and of course the spa pool - which is magical after dark. The children loved feeding the resident geese (in the next door field) and running around the enclosed private garden. This is a great place to use as a base to explore the area, as there is so much in to do. We would thoroughly recommend Lanxton Barn and we hope to go back again next year :)

  • Beautiful accommodation in a wonderful location. Everything need has been catered for with lots of thoughtful touches! Go stay here... you won’t regret it!! We will be back for certain.

    Karen2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay and great hosts

    Sarah2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • House is absolutely stunning and of a very high standard. Host even provided robes for hot tub which was a lovely touch as we had not thought of taking these. We also liked the fact that there were two fridges, kettles and toasters which made cooking for 7 adults and two children really easy. Rooms are very spacious and modern. Would look to stay here again.

    Jessica2019-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location and accommodation Well hosted very relaxed with excellent amenities highy recommended

    John2019-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home, very spacious, more than enough room for our group of 8. Bedrooms and bathrooms on the ground floor making it easy when you finally drag yourself out of the hot tub. Really peaceful setting and friendly hosts.

    Lianne2019-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • The barn was absolutely amazing. It is beautiful and has been converted and decorated to a top class standard. All of the furnishings were luxury, the kitchen was amazing and made cooking for 9 people easy. The hot tub was fantastic for a cold January weekend. I would highly recommend this place to groups of friends or families, it is such a lovely social space. It was outstanding.

    Sharron2019-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic cottage. Really well equipped. Plenty of towels. Lovely host. Great location for travelling to the coast.

    Tucked away in a quiet rural location, enjoying breathtaking views across the Kensey Valley, these beautifully converted barn apartments offer stylish, luxury self-catering holiday accommodation. Perfect for dog owners, couples and families alike, they provide an ideal base for exploring all that Cornwall has to offer.
    Sleeps 2 + Cot With a private fenced garden area, Kylden is the ideal apartment for guests with anything that might otherwise escape (dog/toddler!) The front stable door leads directly into the newly refurbished kitchen/eating area, with Nespresso machine, open beamed ceiling & terracotta tiled floor. There is one step up into the spacious living area (with a wooden gate if you need to keep your furry friend in the kitchen!). With open beamed ceiling, cosy woodburner & solid oak floor, this characterful space is the perfect place to relax after a day’s exploring, or just to snuggle down under a blanket with a good book. Through a partition curtain, guests will find the 5ft canopied bed with down mattress topper, and newly upgraded ensuite bathroom with a shower over the 10 jet whirlpool bath. Dogs are most welcome at Kylden, and with a huge fenced paddock adjacent to the property, you don't even need to get out of your pyjamas to go for a walk!
    One of the benefits of being in such a central location is that there are literally hundreds of places to visit on a day trip from Landrends. Definitely too many to list here! The nearest beach (Crackington Haven) is a 20 minute drive, but a number of North and South coast beaches & walks are less than an hour's drive. The Eden project is a 45 minute drive, and both Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor are 20 minutes drive. It is also worth looking online at visitcornwall.com, and the National Trust website.
  • Amazing little space with a lovely fire and beautiful welcome basket! Really dog friendly which our little pup loved. Fenced in little area right by the barn which would be perfect in summer and a massive field to exercise your dog in as well. The whole place was spotlessly clean when we arrived and there was a full basket of logs. There were loads of local amenities advertised in a really helpful little welcome pack and loads of food etc offered. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone I know and especially anyone with dogs!

    Albert2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy barn. The log burner was great in the evenings for cuddling up in front of the tv with some bubbles. The place was very clean. Perfect place to take your dog, there was a basket with blankets and treats and an outside courtyard which was gated. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our own food. We had takeaway the first night which we collected from the town that was 5 mins away. We visited Boscastle and tintagel castle - both lovely. Great views, great walks, perfect for dogs. I would definitely visit here again!

    Caroline2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely break, cute and cosy with lovely little extras. Our sausages LOVED the treats that were left for them :) Would definitely recommend.

  • Amazing stay in such a cosy spacious place :)

    Harriet2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Kylden was a lovely cosy place to stay, especially in the winter after a cold wet walk at Boscastle to come back and light the fire. The whole set up is incredibly dog friendly with a massive paddock right next door for the pooch to run around in. The welcome pack provided had loads of information about local attractions and the best places to eat, which we definitely wouldn’t have found otherwise. The Barns are only a five minute drive from the A30 and incredibly easy to get to. Amy and Steve were great hosts and were really attentive. Thank you and we will be back!

    Sam2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning setting with a warm cosy cottage, very welcoming with personal touches. Amazing kitchen utensils! We loved staying thank you again!

  • Our stay was exceptional at Amy and Steve’s Airbnb. Their directions were spot on, a lovely drive up and the check in process was simple. We stayed alongside my husbands parents which worked perfectly. Both caradow and skybar were spotless and beautiful inside. They had so much character and the decor so beautifully done. Bed was very comfortable, shower/bath sparkling and powerful - what you need after hours out enjoying the stunning Cornish countryside! Great location between loads of great things to do, went to three great dog friendly pubs nearby. Our dog was welcome and loved her stay and it was all well maintained. Lovely little touches throughout. We just need to work out when we can come back! Everything we love about Cornwall and UK holidays in one perfect apartment. Don’t miss out on this gem you won’t be disappointed!

    Laura2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

    Lisa2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic apartment, in a great location perfect for visiting Cornwall. Amy as a host was great, with quick responses on any questions and being flexible when we needed to change the dates. The apartment was clean and tidy with everything we needed for our stay. Sidney our dog even got dog biscuits to make his stay more enjoyable. Will defiantly come back in the summer to make the most of the local walking routes and beaches.

    Chris2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing getaway in the countryside, room is bigger than pictures showed, we went with a German shepard and had plenty of space. Amy the host is fantastic and nothing is to much trouble. The welcome pack with suggestions is also great if you aren't from the area. Will defo reccomennd and use Again

    Marc2019-10-22T00:00:00Z

    Carmen2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay! The barn/cottage is incredibly clean, beautifully furnished and it smells amazing! Amy and Steve were really welcoming and lovely to chat to. They have prepared for everything: A huge stack of DVDs in the utility room for you to choose from, hundreds of leaflets for local attractions, washing machine and dryer if you need, they even put a travel cot and a high chair in the house so that we didn't need to worry about bringing them. I can't explain how beautiful the cottage is, we sell in love instantly. We hope to visit again next year.

    Leona2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • What a stunning place! We loved our stay at Caradow - the barn was lovely and clean, every room was thought about carefully and was very stylish! The doggy blankets for the sofa were a nice touch (we normally do bring our own!) But it was nice for the dogs to be thought about too even down to welcome treats being provided. We had biscuits, tea and coffee provided also - the coffee is now our new favourite and we have quickly realised since coming home that you can only get this from Cornwall! I've said to my partner that we must now make another visit to go and get some rather than pay the £2.50 delivery on their website!! We cooked a full English every morning so the kitchen has everything you need to cook breakfast / lunch / dinner. The outside paddock area was great for throwing the ball for our dogs and the picnic area was also very nice! We put a blanket down one evening so we could look at the beautiful view of the fields behind the house which was rather special! Launceston was a quick and easy drive for everything you need from a Tesco for food and petrol to takeaways and pubs etc. Caradow is also a perfect place for exploring the coast, we took a drive to Crackington Haven which was stunning, Unfortunately dogs aren't allowed on the beach there so we took the coastal path which was breathtaking! We then took a trip to the next village of boscastle and the following day we drove to Tintagel and took the coastal path to Trebarwith and had a lovely lunch looking out on the sea at a pub there. We had a perfect 3 days staying at Caradow the only regret we have is not asking where the pigs were kept so we could feed them our scraps! If we plan to come to Launceston again, we will definitely be coming back here! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

It is easy to get to both the North, and South coast from Swallows Nest, giving you access to many of Cornwall's beaches and lovely little ports. Further afield are the lovely National Trust houses of Lanhydrock House, and Cotehele. The Eden Project is just over 20 miles away. The cottage has wifi, TV with Netflix & Sky

Sterts Theatre is about 2 miles away. There are 150 miles of the South West coast path to explore as well! While sunshine can’t always be guaranteed, we guarantee you will have lots to see and do.
  • We have stayed at Swallows Nest twice and find it a peaceful retreat with all the amenities we could need. Even in the wild weather it's a lovely place to just relax.

    Kate2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Superb welcome to a fully equipped and enormously cosy ‘Swallows Nest’. Although outwardly small the ‘Nest’ is tardis-like with everything needed, or could be needed, for a weekend stay available. Indeed with a full range of kitchen equipment and a washing machine any stay could be much longer. There is more than ample space is the bedroom which contains a comfy bed. We would be more than happy to book the accommodation again and may well do so as our brief visit threw up a most interesting part of the country with unexpected delights.

    Brian2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • AMAZING in every way. Hosts go out of their way to communicate quickly and ensure it is perfect. Warm, cosy with literally everything you need. Ideal base to explore the area. I will come back again and again. Thank you.

  • A lovely little home from home. Spotlessly clean. Lovely hosts. Really enjoyed watching the many birds attracted to the bird feeders.

    Jack2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Spent three nights at Swallow's Nest while a kitchen was being fitted at a property nearby. The property is lovely — comfortable and cosy, and the spa bath is to die for! In summer the outside space at the back must be idyllic. Very comfortable bed, and excellent TV on tap (Sky, Netflix, etc). Will return if the need ever arises.

    Simon2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • This one bedroom barn conversion has everything one can need for a holiday trip. Details are thought of such as providing shampoo, shower gel, etc and also tea, coffee, milk, salt, pepper, etc. It may seem basic but not everyone thinks of this. The amenities are also great, underfloor heating, spa tub (sadly didn't have time to utilise, has to be next time!). Self check in is also easy taking the pressure from arriving at a certain time. It did feel home away from home. And the location is brilliant, 10 minutes drive from Liskeard, in the heart of the countryside. Thank you also for the lovely welcome drink & biscuits :)

    Occupying one end of a large converted threshing barn, this great one bedroom property is an ideal place for couples and those with very young families to escape and enjoy the peace and quiet of this rural location on the edge of Bodmin Moor. A brilliant place for walkers, yet within easy reach of both Cornish coasts. The wilds of Dartmoor are not too far away either! Really dog friendly, with an enclosed garden.
    Acorns is a really comfortable 2 storey 1 bedroom cottage, occupying one end of the Owners' superb converted granite barn which used to be an old threshing barn.

Acorns is just 2 miles from Minions, Cornwall's highest village, the famous Cheesewring, a dramatic outcrop of granite slabs and The Hurlers, a set of three bronze age stone circles.The area is rich in mining history with many chimneys, engine houses and stone railway tracks still visible - a reminder of Cornwall's long mining tradition.Acorns is located in 3 designated areas - Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Area of Great Scientific Value and Area of Great Historic Value. So something for everyone! The oak tree shown in the photos is the "famous" Darley Oak which is over 1000 years old. This is a great location to visit if you are a keen walker.

    Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall's Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall's highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwalls stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families.The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Steins empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have a number of properties nearby - Lanhydrock House, Trerice, Cotehele and Antony (used for Disney's Alice in Wonderland), Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book. TThe market town of Launceston is the capital of Cornwall and well worth a visit to see the church of St Mary Magdelene, with granite carvings, unusual among Cornish churches.The town of Liskeard is at the head of the Looe Valley and is approximately 12 miles east of Bodmin. Liskeard is one of the few remaining towns in Cornwall to still have a weekly livestock market. Market day is Tuesday. It serves a number of small surrounding villages and is the gateway to Bodmin Moor. On Bodmin Moor, Dozmary pond is thought to contain Arthur's Excalibur, and Merlin is thought to be still found walking under Tintagel Island.Camelford is a great centre for touring, walking, fishing, swimming or surfing holidays. The town is steeped in history and has excellent shopping and sporting facilities.Port Isaac is the location of the televisions series Poldark and more recently Doc Martin, as well as being a gorgeous working fishing village.

Our hosts were also really thoughtful and the additional touches were very much appreciated. Thank you, we look forward to returning!

  • Highly recommended 5 Star stay. Family of three plus two dogs, we stayed for three days and the cottage was perfect for our needs. It is in a beautiful quiet spot with everything you need. We felt welcomed well before our arrival with good communications from the host and the little touches such as fresh flours and scones cream etc. we’re appreciated. There is a small shop in the village that sells various things, I would recommend Launceston if you need to do a larger shop, approx 10 minutes away. Within the local village there is also a nice pub that offers a good selection of meals.

  • We spent a very pleasant night in Justyna’s bungalow. Confortable, super clean with lots of equipment and kind attentions (fresh flowers). We definitely recommend.

  • Warm and cozy retreat for the half term break. Justyna's bungalow was a great base for exploring Cornwall, allowing us to go North or South without repacking. And the amenities at Hengar Park were nice. We enjoyed the pool and a weekend evening children's program.
