Detached converted coach house with period features, situated ideally for both Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor and with easy access to many of Cornwall’s places of interest.

This property is only minutes from the A30, which runs through the heart of Cornwall, giving easy access to many of the county’s best-loved attractions, towns, and beaches. Around a ten-minute walk from the property is The Jamaica Inn, the pub made famous by Daphne du Maurier’s novel of the same name. Here, visitors can enjoy the restaurant, smuggler’s museum, and farm shop as well as the characterful bar. Fly fishing is available locally or further afield, there are plenty of places to visit, with Tintagel, Port Isaac, Fowey, Looe, and The Eden Project all being within a forty-minute drive from the property.

This spacious two-bedroomed property dates back to 1848 and has been tastefully updated to become a comfortable place for a Cornish holiday. The lounge has a cosy wood burner, for which logs are included, which keeps the property lovely and warm in the cooler months. It also has a TV and DVD, which can be enjoyed from the sofas and there is a dining table which enjoys a lovely spot by the window. The kitchen/diner has a larger, farmhouse-style dining table, as well as everything you would expect to be able to cook your favourite dishes, including an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer, and microwave. The property can accommodate a maximum of 2 people with a choice of two bedrooms: a double and a twin, both of which have exposed beams and offer a relaxing and restful environment, and there is a shower room with WC.

Heading outside guests can enjoy access to the large shared gardens and see some of the owners' animals including horses, free roaming chickens and cats. Explore the beautifully maintained woodland walk where you can spot wildlife, as well as several lakes with resident ducks and also a croquet lawn. There is also the possibility of on-site stabling, in the form of DIY livery, by prior arrangement and at a fee agreed with the owners. Off-road parking is available.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

This was our 2nd visit.....and it won't be the last. On A30 (but you can't hear traffic) and so convenient for all the NT properties in this area. A30 is an excellent new dual carriageway.
