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.

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.
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 Barlow - 16th February 2019
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 Hale - 11th October 2018
For peace and quiet, you can not beat it! Mr Ian Baughurst - 6th October 2018

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 Rohman-Johnson - 19th August 2018
An excellent property- very well maintained and a fabulous location!Mrs Carrie Lee-Falcon - 12th August 2018
The property is an outstanding hideaway and we thoroughly enjoy ourselves.Mr Andrew Chamberlain - 21st May 2017
Perfect escape from our normal pressured world! Fabulous accommodation and the views from the property are stunning whatever the weather. Great just to go out the front gate with our dog and head out onto the moor in any direction that took our fancy. With a great pub/inn up the road and the Camel trail a few minutes' drive away it could hardly be more perfect. Will we come again? You bet!Mr Rimell - 12th May 2017
