Local Area

Located on the edge of Bodmin Moor, a true walkers' paradise, lie the scenic little villages of Altarnun, Trewint and Five Lanes.  Altarnun is an idyllic Cornish village, arguably one of the prettiest in the county.  Full of picturesque stone cottages, with a village hall and village green at its heart.  The Rectory was said to have been visited by Daphne du Maurier and was featured in her novel “Jamaica Inn”.  The real life Jamaica Inn, the basis for the book, is located only 4 miles away.  St Nonna church, at the centre of Altarnun, dates from the 15th century although parts still remain from the original 12th century building.  This beautiful church, with a fine Celtic cross, was used for the wedding scene in Doc Martin.  The moors bordering the villages were frequently chosen as the backdrop for many scenes in the BBC series Poldark; the impressive landscapes and unspoilt scenery perfect for the drama.  It isn't hard to see why this area is so popular with novelists and film producers alike; the stunning moorland, charming villages and beautiful countryside make this area a feast for the eyes.  The many other attractions, including the National Trust's Lanhydrock House, the verdant and flourishing Tamar Valley, historic sites such as castles, the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, and plenty of evidence of Cornwall's mining legacy, make this area a must-see.


Cottage is very comfortable which gives a relaxed and layed back feeling with all your needs catered for. Quite area with a nice little pub at the bottom of lane you can enjoy good food in the restaurant or nip in the bar.Mr Kirkham - 19th April 2017

Had a lovely week. The house is among the best we have ever stayed in. Especially the heating and bed - which is the biggest and most comfortable we have slept in. Thanks also for the wine, the mince pies, chocolates and cream tea. What a lovely welcome!Miss H - 28th December 2016
A nice cottage; well equipped and owner very welcoming.Mrs T Hollands - 7th August 2016
It has been a lovely base for humans and dogs alike... kitchen is pretty much home from home, enabling meals to be easily prepared. Bed probably the most comfortable ever experienced in a rental property - slept so well... Warm welcome received on arrival from Pip - thank you...Mr and Mrs Hollands - 5th August 2016
