    “Cottage is a lovely location but very damp.”

    Having a 3 month old baby with us, this spoilt our holiday as the cottage smelt very strongly of damp and the dehumidifier had to be emptied several times a day. On reporting the issue to HH we had a very negative and dismissive response and then eventually a visit where our concerns were pretty much dismissed.

    Having a 3 month old baby with us, this spoilt our holiday as the cottage smelt very strongly of damp and the dehumidifier had to be emptied several times a day. On reporting the issue to HH we had a very negative and dismissive response and then eventually a visit where our concerns were pretty much dismissed. The cottage was then accessed on several occasions without our knowledge or permission when our possessions were in the cottage which really is not acceptable, no offer of an alternative was made or any sort of recompense. We ended up having to move down to Lavethan were the rest of our family was staying. Having stayed in many helpful holiday cottages in Cornwall and Devon over the last 10 years I am really shocked that the 1st tine we have an issue we are dismissed with no resolution. Its not what we or our family would expect and we are so disappointed that the 1st holiday we have been able to have as a family ended up being spoilt by accommodation that wasnt really fit for purpose especially when there is a new baby in the party.

The property

In the centre of Blisland, a 17th cent.

cottage adjoining the original village school (1842), now the little used village institute, and next to the church (acclaimed in Betjeman's poetry).

It looks over the pretty village green (benches), and is within sight of the good pub on the far side of the green and a short stroll from the shop/internet café.

Inside, cosy and comfortable.

Open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, freezer, fridge, electric cooker) with beams, slate floor (rugs), big fireplace (electric 'flame-effect' fire), Smart TV and view of the green.

Upstairs, two bedrooms - a double looking over the green, and a single looking over the church and churchyard; bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

No children under 7, except pre-crawling babies.

A welcoming little cottage in a pretty village with excellent walking from the door.

Blisland: attractive village (old cottages, good pub, PO/shop/internet café, medieval church) around a green in wooded farmland below the western edge of Bodmin Moor.

Nearby, the River Camel (trout/salmon fishing and Camel Trail cycleway).

The sea at Port Isaac, 9 miles, or Polzeath (sand/surf beach) and Rock (watersports), 12.

Bodmin (town), 5.

About the location

BLISLAND

Bodmin 5.7 miles; Wadebridge 8.4 miles; Polzeath 13.2 miles; Tintagel 13.8 miles; Padstow 16 miles; Fowey 17.2 miles.

Situated under the western edge of granite-bound Bodmin Moor, the village of Blisland retains its age old character and is the only village in Cornwall to have a village green with trees. Around the green, cluster old houses and cottages, as well as the famous, award-winning Blisland Inn. The village is located less than three miles from the A30, and so provides an ideal central location for touring Cornwall. Nearby, Poley’s Bridge marks the beginning of the Camel Trail, a 17-mile long route, which follows a long disused old steam engine railway line to Padstow. The route is completely traffic-free and perfect for walkers and cyclists. You can even explore the trail on horseback and a purpose-built hide has been constructed between Wadebridge and Padstow, so even birdwatchers are catered for! Pull on your walking boots and explore Bodmin Moor, or venture to the coast with your buckets and spades and enjoy a day on one of the many beautiful beaches that stretch along Cornwall’s northern coastline. A fabulous part of the country for all!

Note: This property does not accept children under 5 except babes in arms.
