On the outskirts of Liskeard and a short walk from the railway station is The Dutchy; an annexe property attached to the owners’ home, originally built in 1912 as offices for the Duchy of Cornwall and visited by royalty.
After a modern renovation, this self-catering holiday home comfortably sleeps five people and is ideally located for those wanting to explore the beautiful Cornish coast.
Entering the property up two steps, through the hallway, you will come to the sitting area – part of the open-plan living space – which is home to a large sofa and lounge chairs with a TV and DVD player for a family movie night in, as well as books and games for the quieter (and inevitable) rainy days.
In the kitchen you will find the modern oven and large American style fridge freezer, great for storing all the delicious food you can prepare in this delightful space.
Sit around the dining table with your meal for some quality family time, before taking your glass of wine through the French doors and onto the patio to catch the evening sunset.
On the other side of the property are the bedrooms; a master bedroom with a king-size bed, a twin and a single, all served by a contemporary bathroom that features a walk-in shower, and slipper bath, with the added benefit of a second separate WC and basin.
Outside, there is ample room for off-road parking for up to three cars so The Duchy can be the perfect place where you can come together.
To the north is the vast expanse of Bodmin Moor, one of Cornwall's designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where Cornwall's two highest peaks lie - Rough Tor and Brown Willy - as well as numerous archaeological remains from the Bronze Age that have been uncovered, and Medieval clapper bridges, there is much to discover.
Make sure to travel south as well, to Looe, an old fishing village where you can go down to the harbour to watch the fishing boats coming in to unload their catches.
The Duchy is everything you'll want for a relaxing break in Cornwall, with easy access to the coast and adventures further inland as well, you will enjoy the best of both worlds.
