The property

After a day of swimming and surfing on one of the north coast beaches, guests will love to return to this chic rustic lodge. The sandy beaches at Polzeath, Trebarwith Strand and Bude are all within 30 minutes drive of Oaklands which nestles in a peaceful rural valley between the coast and Bodmin Moor. Beautifully appointed, the lodge sits beside a gentle stretch of the trout filled River Inny which runs from its source at nearby Davidstow to join the River Tamar in Devon. Off the beaten track, local facilities include a small supermarket within 3 miles and a good pub/restaurant within 2 miles. A mooch around the impossibly pretty coastal villages of Boscastle and Port Isaac gives a taste of Cornish life past and present and shopaholics may enjoy a day browsing the boutiques and curio shops clustered around the harbour in Padstow. Sporty types may prefer to head to one of the links golf courses at Bude, Polzeath or St Enodoc or enjoy a game of tennis on the onsite courts at Oaklands. For a change of pace you can also enjoy coastal walks, cycling on the camel trail or a trip to the incredible Eden Project.

Part of a select development of privately owned holiday properties, Oaklands effortlessly blends traditional materials with contemporary style. The exposed English Oak frame and beams set the scene for the tasteful interior with cosy sofas and neutral hues. The spacious open plan living space and ground floor bedroom and wet room may suit guests who have limited mobility. Outside, the garden has a deck equipped with garden furniture, a barbecue and views of the rolling landscape across the river which is often dotted with sheep grazing happily in the sunshine. A cream tea awaits you on arrival.
