    “An excellent holiday cottage.”

    The presentation was of the highest standard and we would recommend to anyone. One of the best we have stayed in. Owners very helpful and friendly.

The property

Tucked away at the end of a farm drive, 1½ miles from the centre of St Giles on the Heath, a detached cottage smartly converted from a barn around the owners’ working farmyard (sometimes lambs, calves, passing tractors).

Inside, modern country charm with natural wood, slate, original beams.

Behind the cottage, an enclosed garden with lawn and suntrap terrace with table/chairs (3' drop to one side of garden, small children beware).

The farm drive (500 yards; bumpy, rough and steep in places) leads through acres of the owners’ leafy woodland, which you are welcome to wander.Slate-floored hall and living room (TV/DVD) with stable doors to garden.

Smart kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker).

Utility room (washing machine).

Shower-room (suite).

Upstairs (stairgates, low beams, 5'11" lintel at bottom of stairs), three bedrooms - a roomy double (5' bed) with high apex beams and TV, another double, and a neat single.

Bathroom (suite plus hand-shower).

Spring water.

A lovely traditional farm base within easy reach of good walks, watersports, moors and north Cornwall’s stunning, rugged coastline. St Giles on the Heath: small village (thatched pub, PO/shop, Norman church) amidst beautiful rolling farmland on the Devon/Cornwall border, 4 miles from Launceston.

Roadford Lake (watersports, walking, birdwatching), 5 miles; Dartmoor (Lydford Gorge, Brentor), 13; the sea at Bude (surfing), Boscastle, Tintagel, about 20.
