    • “We really enjoyed our week at Tom, the cottage is cosy, very comfortable and warm, with an endless supply of logs for the wood burner. The owners made us feel welcome and showed us the Celtic crosses in their garden and gave us some info about the history of the place, fascinating! The location was perfect, lovely surrounding countryside walks, a short walk away from the village where there is a pub (never made it there) and a very useful community shop stocked with essentials and a post office. My only comment would be that the kitchen is looking a bit tired and could do with some updating, nothing serious, we had everything we needed in terms of equipment and appliances, and the cooker was great, oven worked really well!”

    Mrs Page, Maidstone, December 2018

    • “We chose to stay in Tom's cottage near Bodmin. The cottage was actually far more spacious than the pictures on the website. It was super clean, really well equipped kitchen and lovely and cosy. The quietness was blissful. The caretaker Krysia and her husband were always on hand for any questions we may have and we were greeted with a plate of homemade scones, jam and clotted cream. It was a fabulous stay and we would go back in a heart beat. My two teenage boys and my mum loved it also as everyone had their own space. It was a home from home and we are actually thinking of booking one Christmas.”

    Mrs Headley, Waltham Cross, August 2018

    • “A lovely, peaceful place to relax.”

    Mrs May, Gillingham, June 2018

    • “Really perfect little cottage . We were a family of 5 staying for a long weekend. We loved it.”

    Mrs Cotton, Long Wittenham, May 2018

    • “General layout was good with plenty of space and in a lovely setting. However the cottage was damp when we arrived and it took several days for the smell to subside. Part of the kitchen wall was mouldy as were some of the walls in the bathroom. We were particularly disappointed with the poor standard of maintenance in the bathroom, namely: the floor in the vicinity of the wc had structurally failed where the floor depressed alarmingly when stood on, unsightly discolouration of the mastic bath seal, mould on walls, broken blind affording little privacy for a ground floor facility and general deterioration of the window frame. There was no positive air extraction in the bathroom other than opening the window. Elsewhere in the main bedroom there was significant open cracking in the plasterwork, the windows had not been adequately cleaned and appeared to have smears of paint on them. In the kitchen the tiled worktops had stained and missing grout, the oven was not clean. The above reflects the general tired appearance of the property and we noted from the visitors book that we were not alone in thinking this. Similar concerns were raised some two years ago, but no action appears to have been taken. We are surprised that this has not been picked up on through your company's vetting process. Overall we did not feel that this was good value for money and would be reluctant to book with you again.”

    Mrs Keable, Amersham, September 2018

The Property

¼ mile from the centre of Blisland is a beautiful place described by Country Life as 'near perfect'. A lovely listed 17th cent. manor house (the owners' home, used in the making of films) and, in its grounds, a long barn converted into three cottages called Tom, Dick and Harry. One-hundred yard drive leads from a lane to the cottages (which are completely hidden from it). The cottages share lawns (tables/chairs, barbecue for each cottage) on three sides - one walled, one large with granite-pillared swing and trees. Beyond them, park-like field with massive plane tree slopes to stream (tiddlers) with island. In all, 30 acres (sheep, cattle) for exploring: woods with unusual trees, remains of a Victorian water garden, grotto and Celtic crosses (medieval pilgrims en route to Falmouth, ship and Santiago de Compostela stopped here). Masses of space. Newly restored barn available for parties and weddings, a spectacular space with well-equipped kitchen (caterers can be recommended) - please ask us for details. Coach house with washing machines, tumble driers, freezer. Spring water. Arrival after 4pm. One well-behaved dog welcome, for a second dog please inquire. No pets between 20 July and 31 August. Each cottage has its own distinct character. All relaxed, charming and well situated for exploring north and south Cornish coasts.

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!
