The property

A wildly romantic barn conversion in a scenic rural setting, April Cottage is perfect for couples and families seeking the slow-life. Beautifully spacious and stylish, this is a desirable base for exploring the stunning north coast and atmospheric Bodmin Moor. Set back from the road, it is completely detached and feels nicely private from the owners neighbouring home. The interior is arranged on the ground floor and oozes country perfection. Sink into comfortable sofas and arm chairs in the sitting room. Relax beside the blazing wood burner or throw open the bi fold doors onto an enclosed courtyard garden on warm days for an outside-in ambiance. It is a real sun-trap and well screened from view with exotic planters, garden furniture, barbecue and a fire pit to set the scene for relaxed outdoor living. Cook up a delicious supper in the well equipped kitchen with fresh Cornish produce from the local farm shop. Retire to serene bedrooms furnished with comfortable king size double beds and TV's. The stylish sky-lit wet room and bathroom have Velux Windows to watch clouds race and stars shine.


Bliss for ramblers walks can commence from the door and there are 4 acres of private fields next to cottage to explore. Take a picnic and enjoy a scenic ramble on nearby Bodmin Moor, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or head for the South West Coast Path. The cheerful seaside towns and villages at Port Isaac, Padstow, Boscastle, Fowey and Polperro and the long tracts of sandy beaches at Polzeath, Par Sands and Trebarwith Strand are within easy reach. The immediate area provides fantastic and varied attractions including the nearby Lanhydrock National Trust House. For keen golfers Lostwithiel Hotel & Country Club, just 400 yards away, boasts a beautiful 18 hole golf course and a bar restaurant that welcomes non-residents. A trip on a steam train at the Bodmin and Wenford Railway is a must - indulge in an 'on board' cream tea and watch the beautiful countryside roll by. The Eden Project is just a 20 minute drive away and The Lost Gardens of Heligan near Mevagissey are highly recommended. With so many attractions close by, magical memories will guarantee a return visit to this lovely cottage.

Bodmin, the one-time County Town of Cornwall with its narrow streets, shops and pubs, is perfectly placed for exploring all that this fabulous holiday area has to offer. The outstanding surf, rugged cliffs and hidden coves of the north coast beaches and the quieter sands and river estuaries of the south coast are both 15 miles away while on the edge of town is the fascinating museum and haunting presence of the old Bodmin Jail. The popular Camel Trail for cyclists and walkers also winds its way through the town on its journey to the sea at Padstow. Close by are the open spaces and wind swept grandeur of Bodmin Moor while the incomparable Eden Project (11 miles), Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum (30 miles) and the beautiful harbour town of Padstow with its famous pubs and restaurants (16 miles) make for great days out. Also within easy reach and ideal for a fun-filled day out, guests can visit Lanhydrock House, the small town of Fowey and Charlestown with its Tall Ships.
