A delightful 18th Century cottage, set in the charming hamlet of Trevelmond on the southern fringes of Bodmin Moor, which is perfect for access to the moors as well as offering a great base from which to explore Cornwall. Thatch View Cottage feels both homely and welcoming. The thick stone walls and exposed beams provide plenty of charming character whilst the modern furnishings and amenities will ensure a most comfortable stay. The stunning inglenook fireplace, with its cosy wood-burning stove, presents a striking feature in the living room and the well-equipped kitchen/dining room with its welcoming and warming Rayburn range, is a great place for family meals and evenings spent relaxing together. Upstairs are three well-appointed and cosy bedrooms and a modern bathroom making this an ideal cottage for a small family or friends wanting some quality time together.
Although tucked away off the beaten track, this tranquil hamlet is easily accessible both from the A38 route into Cornwall from Plymouth and the main A30 from Bodmin. The seaside town of Looe can be reached within 20 minutes by car. Both the picturesque, estuary town of Fowey and the delights of The Eden Project are but a 30-minute drive. Beautiful walks abound in the vicinity and if you’re a keen cyclist then be sure to pay a visit to Cardinham Woods where some great cycle trails await you. Golitha Falls is well worth a visit as the water cascades through a steep-sided gorge on the upper reaches of the River Fowey and is absolutely spectacular.

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.
Lovely clean and well appointed cottage. We had a lovely stay and would highly recommend. Good central location for exploring coastlines, the Camel Trail, The Eden Project, etc. Welcome hamper was a nice touch.Katy Rintoul - 1st September 2018
We felt very comfortable in this small house. Everything is very lovely and decorated with nice details. I like the country kitchen the best! It is a super nice retreat, in touristy Cornwall. The housekeeper Coral is very helpful, nice and helpful. Likewise the neighbors. It feels like home. It is a good starting point to visit all the major attractions in Cornwall.Simone Bohler Huber - 12th August 2018
We have spent a lovely few days exploring beautiful Cornwall from our base at Thatch View Cottage. The house is superbly equipped and was spotlessly clean and comfortable, would love to come back, the welcome hamper was much appreciated also! Pete & Eileen - 25th June 2018

What a privilege to be the first official guests at Thatch View Cottage and to share our feedback on what has been a fantastic holiday. We fell in love with the cottage as soon as we walked in and the welcome hamper was such a kind touch. We made some amazing memories on a great holiday here in Cornwall and Thatch Cottage has been the best of the best for us. Richard & Jane - 2nd June 2018
