Daisy's Cottage is everything you would expect from an archetypical Cornish character cottage. Converted from a stone barn to a high standard in 2008, it has exposed stonework and old oak beams (not too low!), slate floors, a cosy woodburner and a lovely large enclosed garden, perfect for dogs and/or kids to run around in safety, or just for you to sit in a lounger enjoying the peace with a good book or a glass of wine!
Daisy's Cottage is set in a tranquil rural location down a short farm track off a quiet leafy lane on the side of the Camel Valley, a stone's throw from the wild and beautiful Bodmin Moor and just a 20 minute drive to several great beaches. The village of St Breward, just over a mile away, boasts the highest pub and church in Cornwall and wonderful views over the Moors and countryside right out to the coast can be enjoyed on the way. The friendly ancient pub is called The Old Inn and has slate floors and huge granite fireplaces (lit in Winter) in the characterful dog-friendly old bars, with a pool room, small garden and an additional large restaurant area behind serving generous pub food and a selection of beers.
The area is superb for walkers and wildlife enthusiasts and is also ideally situated to explore the many beaches and stunning coastline of the county. The Camel Trail starts just a mile further on from St Breward at Wenford Bridge - 18 miles of former railway line beside the River Camel, now converted to a level walking and cycling trail, leading all the way through Wadebridge to Padstow if you're that energetic! Bikes can be hired locally. Or maybe follow Poldark's footsteps on horseback from Halagenna riding stables at St Breward, used in the filming, a really great way to explore The Moor! Whatever your fancy, Daisy's is in a great spot for taking full advantage of all Cornwall has to offer, whilst providing a peaceful and comfortable haven to return to at the end of a day's adventures.

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.
We had a fantastic week at Daisy's Cottage. It was very relaxing and comfortable.Kelly Hewitt - 30th July 2018
The cottage was fabulous, and as stated the garden was enclosed for the dog enabling us to relax knowing he couldn't stray. This is massive p!us!! Area very good for visiting coast & countryside. Mrs Susan Scott - 19th June 2018
The property was one of the best cottages we have stayed in. The cottage was well equiped and clean. As it is located in a middle of farm it was nice seeing the cows in the morning and evening. We come to Cornwall every year and found the location excellent. It was was a short drive to amenities in Bodmin and Wadebridge. We walked to the Old Inn which took us half an hour which was a nice walk through Bodmin Moor where we saw some wild ponies. Would highly recommend this cottage.Mr A Parker - 18th June 2018
This cottage was lovely. We fell in love with the cows going by to be milked twice a day. The garden truly was dog proof not always so in some of the properties we have stayed in. This was the best cottage we've stayed in and we have stayed in many over the years.Nikki Guntrip - 17th June 2018
The only thing we missed was a dishwasher but otherwise a fabulous property - one of the best we have stayed in and we have been coming to Cornwall for the last 17 years - sometimes more than once a year! Mrs Debbie Westland - 19th February 2018
There are some properties that make excellent holiday rentals and there are some you want to move into permanently, I'd like to live in Daisy's Cottage and while away the time watching the cows amble by the garden. Wonderful, I am sure we will want to visit Daisy's again. Daisy's Cottage is wonderful, the owner has gone to great lengths to ensure you are greeted by a beautifully maintained and cared for property and I for one would be happy spending all my days there and while away the time in the garden watching the cows amble by.Mr Graham Briggs - 15th October 2017
Daisy's cottage was everything we hoped for and more. The enclosed garden for dogs was particularly lovely. Mr B Pindar - 8th August 2017
