  • Idyllic country retreat perfect for romantic getaways
  • Peaceful rural location with beautiful walks on the doorstep
  • The property can sleep 2 + 2 with a sofa bed on request, at additional cost of £25
  • Easy access to all Cornwall’s attractions
Property code: 49662

When it comes to countryside-chic, you can't quite beat a beautiful barn conversion. Perched on the edge of Bodmin Moor, this peaceful nest mixes style and comfort to provide you with an idyllic romantic retreat. Although beautifully rural, much of the South West is easily accessible from here, giving you endless options for fun in this stunning and diverse corner of the UK.

Charming and inviting, the boutique-styled interior speaks to modernism while retaining rustic character. Exposed stone walls and local slate window sills inject a splash of the countryside, that contrasts against a soft, neutral colour palette. High apex ceilings open up the generous living and dining rooms, where there's plenty of space to spread out and relax. Enjoy views of rolling hills from a warm haven or rustle up a BBQ in the outdoor seating area.

With so much of Cornwall to explore, the fact that you'll be a short drive from the A30 is a great advantage. Tintagel castle and Boscastle are within 12 miles, and nature lovers can fill their boots at The Hidden Valley and the famous Eden Project, around 30 miles away. If you don't fancy a ride in the car, beautiful walks await on the doorstep across the rugged landscape of Bodmin Moor. Thrill seekers should be sure to visit The Adrenaline Quarry or venture up to Bude to have a go at surfing during summer months, both within 20 miles.

  • 1 super-king-size bedroom
  • 1 double futon/sofa bed in the lounge available on request for up to two additional adults or children - additional £25
  • 1 Shower room
  • Lounge area with comfortable seating and TV, with views across the outdoor space

  • Ample parking
  • Regret no smoking
  • Beach 10 miles, restaurant 4 miles and pub 2.5 miles
  • Sleeps 2+2 - additional adults or children can be added to the booking
  • Electric vehicle charging on site
  • Arrival: 15:30 onwards
  • Departure: before 10:00, unless otherwise stated in your arrival details
  • 4 dogs allowed. Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week

This cottage is really quiet and peaceful with hardly any passing traffic. The views were lovely and you could while away the day just sitting in the garden and doing little else. Dog friendly which is always a bonus, and plenty of room in the main sitting/dining room. Well situated for exploring North and mid Cornwall. Loved it.

A beautiful location, secluded and tranquil with only the odd passerby from the nearby glamping site.
