    • “The cottage had many thoughtful touches and was very homely. The owners were very kind with arrangements for my 90 year old mother. Really beautiful views, very quiet and Blisland is a very friendly village. On a sunny day in December the sunroom was a really warm and a lovely place to sit. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything needed including another beautiful view. The heating system and wood burner were excellent although the double bedroom next to the living room could be cold at night. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. The bathrooms were modern and very well equipped. A beautiful setting on a nice farm. Wonderful, thank you!”

    Mrs Hooper, Totnes, December 2018

    • “There is a set of stone steps up to the building that get a little slippery when it is wet.”

    Mr Holland, Swadlincote, October 2018

    • “Very peaceful place with lovely views and just a short walk to a pretty village and up onto Bodmin Moor. Higher Tumrose is a very cozy, but spacious bungalow. The large lounge has the best wood burning stove I’ve ever used - so easy to light. There was plenty of equipment in the kitchen. Everything worked although the appliances are a bit elderly (the microwave is small). The beds were very comfortable too. The downside; the main bathroom shower was little more than a dribble which meant queuing for the electric en-suite one. There are ten steps up to the front door and the paving is slippery when wet. Only a problem if you book the property, like us, with an elderly parent in mind. Bizarrely the sun lounge was a fly graveyard! This aside, Higher Tumrose was a great place to stay for exploring North Cornwall. We loved the pub too - great beer and really friendly.”

    Mrs Beard, Linlithgow, October 2018

    • “We would like to thank the hosts Mr and Mrs Jensen for their kindness, friendship and hospitality. They were there if we needed them and yet left us alone to enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the cottage. The views and the tranquility of the cottage made a perfect holiday for us. The cottage was warm and very comfortable well equipped. For us it made for a perfect time away to leave as far as we could the trials and tribulations of our normal lives behind us and just enjoy each others company in a wonderful setting. Please thank Mr and Mrs Jensen very much for allowing us to have the opportunity to stay at Higher Tumrose.”

    Mr O'sullivan, BIRCHINGTON, September 2018

    • “We had a great time. Great cottage which had everything that we needed. Weather was fabulous for both weeks. Already booked for next year!”

    Mr Barnard, Leatherhead, July 2018

    • “Another week in a beautiful cottage with friendly owners. Found this wonderfully peaceful place last year & had to go back. If you are looking for somewhere to unwind this is it. Traditional village pub very close for good meals & a wonderful community run shop - please use it so locals don't lose it.”

    Mrs Cannon, BANBURY, June 2018

    • “We were very surprised to see you charging a booking fee. We assume that Sykes have introduced this charge which is unwelcome.”

    Mr Abrahams, GUILDFORD, April 2018

The Property

¼ mile from Blisland, in a lovely situation, a charming, sunny, single-storey cottage and, 50 yards from it, a handsome single-storey house. They are up 300 yards of private tree-lined, primrose-banked lane, separated by the lawn-garden of the owners’ beautiful 16th cent. farmhouse of a 65 acre mixed farm (sheep, cows/calves). You are welcome on the farm. Behind rises a tor (fine views). Foxes, badgers and buzzards about. A grand place for walkers, birdwatchers and peace-seekers - very close to the open moor (nearby gate to it) but in soft, wooded countryside. Higher Tumrose, the single-storey house, is detached, well designed and full of character: big rooms, comfortable furniture and superb long views. Shallow steps down to terrace/patio (table/chairs) and good-sized lawn divided from fields by ha-ha; all very secluded. Inside: hall.

Regional Information

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!
