Description

What a stunning little Cornish gem. Beautifully furnished to the last detail, this is a perfect holiday destination for a couple and their four-legged friend. Situated on Bodmin Moor only 1.9 miles from St Breward, where you have access to the local village shop offering a wide range of goods including local produce which you can even order online and arrive to find your groceries delivered. Located within the shop is a North Cornwall Heritage Coast and Countryside Service information point where you can ask about local walks. There is also a pet friendly public house, The Old Inn. Steeped in history, it has been catering to weary travellers for centuries and is now renowned for its great food and all day Sunday Carvery. Within a couple of miles, you could join the Camel Trail at Wenford Bridge. 18 miles of disused railway line along beautiful countryside and estuary all the way to Padstow, the Trail is suitable for all ages and abilities. Two of Cornwall's best known landmarks can be explored on the Moor - Rough Tor and Brown Willy that rise up to 1360 feet and are the highest points in Cornwall. There are superb views and on a good day both coasts can be seen. You can walk to both directly from Little Irish.  The enclosed garden provides a lovely haven for those warmer evenings, in the cooler days/evenings you can cosy up in front of the woodburner and watch the ever changing scenery. A 20-minute drive will find you in the pretty market town of Wadebridge or you could visit Rock and catch a ferry to the bustling fishing port of Padstow making this property an excellent base to explore more of the Cornish Coast.

Plenty of places to visit in local area: Camel Trail, Camel Valley Vineyard, Cardinham Woods, Lanhydrock, Snails Pace Cafe, Pencarrow House. 40 minutes to Padstow, 20 minutes to Wadebridge.

Mrs Ann-Marie K,

Very comfortable and well appointed in a wonderful location. Very friendly and efficient service. Most important, I found a property that suited my purpose at a very reasonable price

Mr Chris D,

Absolutely gorgeous cottage!

Previous Customer,

Cornish Horizons were very professional and helpful. We stayed at Little Irish in Bodmin Moor. Delightful converted cowshed with very modern fixtures and fittings and extremely comfortable. Parking right outside and fantastic views. Located on a private farm so very peaceful, almost silent. Had the best nights sleep in ages! Dunes locally in the Old Inn in St Breward. Delicious food and extensive menu. Also ate at Jamaica a Inn which is only a 25 minute drive away. Some of the best walks in Cornwall only a stones throw away. Fantastic holiday.

Mrs Sarah G,

Nice property with beautiful remote location. Spent a very enjoyable week there despite the weather but the hosts were very accommodating and friendly. Highly recommended!

Mr Peter B,

My husband and I and our Yorkshire Terrier thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Irish. The cottage was well appointed. We had a very relaxing week and arrived home well rested. If we holiday in that area again we would definitely book Little Irish.

Mrs Sonia H,

For peace and quiet, you can not beat it!

Mr Ian B,

Thank you for a nice cottage and a nice holiday, you made booking a holiday easy. Thanks to the owner's, nice people and the Cornish Horizons team.

Mr David C,

We had a brilliant time at Little Irish. It was a peaceful place tucked away on Bodmin moor and surrounded by wildlife. Perfect to explore North Cornwall, another fantastic Cornish holiday, we’ll definitely be back!

Mrs Jo R,

An excellent property- very well maintained and a fabulous location!

Mrs Carrie L,

Map

If ever there was a place to fully appreciate the stark beauty of the Cornish landscape, Bodmin Moor has to be it.  With endless sweeping vistas in every direction, tumbled outcrops of granite, and inviting paths and tracks to explore, this area of Cornwall is a walker's paradise.  The famous Jamaica Inn is sited here, with all its literary and historical associations.  With plenty of sheep and moorland ponies wandering freely (be sure to keep your dog under control!) you can almost imagine you have been transported back to those bygone days.  More recently, of course, the moor was used extensively for filming on the new adaptation of Poldark.  When the dashing Mr Poldark gallops across your screen, you may well be seeing the scenery of the moor in the background. A large part of the moor has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.  This region also has its fair share of Arthurian legends, another facet which lends a mysterious air to the landscape, and an extra depth to Cornwall's rich and varied history, and of course who can forget the rumours of the Beast of Bodmin Moor! 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.
