The property

Launceston 2.7 miles.

Nestled on the edge of the border of Cornwall in the quiet rural village of South Petherwin is the Granary, a stone-built barn conversion surrounded by lush rolling countryside.

Perfectly positioned within close reach of Cornwall and Devon, The Granary provides an idyllic base for both families and friends looking to explore the delights of this wonderful part of the country.

With a reverse level layout, The Granary features a stylish interior décor of high vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, beautifully contrasting with the elegant furnishings for an effortlessly stylish design.

Enter the property on the ground-floor into a spacious entryway, before heading upstairs.

The open-plan living/dining area is beautifully-appointed, with exposed wooden rafters and a woodburning stove.

A sumptuous corner sofa with enough room for the whole family to cosy up together to enjoy a favourite show, as well as a grand dining table, offering a sociable space to gather around with the group to indulge in a delicious meal whilst planning your next adventure.

Continuing through, the designated chef will be delighted with the well-equipped country-style kitchen, featuring glass doors leading out to the garden, where you can prepare a hearty breakfast to enjoy in the fresh air of the garden before heading out for the day.

End each day in style with a seat in the hot tub, soaking in the scenic countryside enveloping the property and toasting a glass of fizz to a fantastic holiday.

As the day draws to a close, head back to the ground floor where you'll find three wonderfully presented bedrooms, a twin bedroom offering a zip/link features for flexible sleeping arrangements as well as two king-size rooms, both benefitting from an en-suite, ideal for larger groups.

The fourth and final bedroom can be found upstairs, beautifully furnished with a king-size bed and offering the perfect spot to retire to with your significant other.

Servicing the property is the family bathroom located on the ground floor, featuring a bath as well as a walk-in shower, giving you the choice between enjoying a leisurely soak after a fun-filled day, or steaming away the day with a rinse in the shower.

If you don't fancy cooking for the evening, put down the oven gloves and take the short stroll into the village of South Petherwin for a bite to eat at the local country pub The Frog and Bucket followed by a game of skittles held at South Petherwin Village Hall every Tuesday.

The little ones will be delighted with a visit to the nearby Trethorne Leisure Park, boasting family-friendly fun including bumper cars, a climbing wall, bowling and a petting zoo!

A stone's throw away from The Granary is the ancient town of Launceston, home to an exciting selection of independent shops and restaurants as well as a host of heritage to be discovered, including Launceston Castle, dating back to the 13th century, as well as Lawrence House Museum.

Spend the day at the beach with a visit to Widemouth Bay, a Blue Flag award -winning beach located 3 miles from the popular seaside resort of Bude and accessible along the South West coast path, where you can explore hundreds of rock pools or learn to surf on the waters of the Atlantic.
