    “Great cottage surrounded by beautiful gardens which were perfect for our 3 girls to play in, and they did!”

    Although the cottage is secluded it is only a ten minute walk into the small village of Lerryn where there is a great pub and lots of long, enjoyable walks. Lerryn is a superb place to reach lots of different activities and beaches easily, getting around was incredibly easy. We loved the village. It is obvious the cottage is loved and well looked after; the beds were super comfortable and many of the items in the cottage felt like new and of good quality. ...

    Although the cottage is secluded it is only a ten minute walk into the small village of Lerryn where there is a great pub and lots of long, enjoyable walks. Lerryn is a superb place to reach lots of different activities and beaches easily, getting around was incredibly easy. We loved the village. It is obvious the cottage is loved and well looked after; the beds were super comfortable and many of the items in the cottage felt like new and of good quality. Unfortunately, the downstairs toilet broke in the first week (nothing to do with us, it just stopped taking water in to enable a flush) and, despite the housekeeper's quick response to the problem, it wasn't fixed during our stay and it began to smell. This meant we couldn't use the downstairs shower as this was in the downstairs toilet area. The second shower was used up to that point - being a family of 5 it came in really handy. On the cleanliness aspect, everything was clean except for one thing that had been missed - the utensils at the side of the cooker were covered in fat/oil splatters. This was rather off putting; as I picked one of the utensils up, not knowing this was the case, I found my hand was covered in oil. Before I used any of them, I had to hand wash them.

The property

½ mile from Lerryn, a wonderfully private, detached cottage with 19th cent.

origins in an area of great beauty.

A big rambling garden (table/chairs, barbecue) encloses it, full of flowering shrubs and birdsong: brilliant freedom for older children to explore, yet enclosed at the front for younger ones.

Undulating meadows all around.

Inside, stylish yet family-friendly with fresh, simple, uncluttered decor.

Slate floors (thick rugs) downstairs.

Big double-aspect living room with TV/DVD/Blu-ray, woodburner and glazed door to garden.

Children’s snug with box of games/toys.

Spacious kitchen (dishwasher, fridge-freezer, electric range-style oven/induction hob) with meadow views.

Dining room with door to side porch and step down to back lobby (washing machine, microwave, sink) and little shower-room (suite).

Upstairs, three bedrooms - two double (5' beds), one with limited clothes-hanging space, and a twin with beautiful meadow views.

Bathroom (suite plus hand-shower and separate shower).

The cottage is approached via 50 yards of hardcore driveway/cattle grid to gravelled parking area and carport.

A restorative, romantic bolt hole or family get-away, just ½ mile quiet lane walk from a good pub (remember torch) and village store. Lerryn: exceptionally pretty village (pub, PO/shop, village green, slipway) spreading along both banks of the Lerryn Creek (good canoeing/kayaking) which ebbs and flows into the River Fowey through dense woodland, creating an ever-changing scene.

Canoe trips, 9 miles.

About the location

LERRYN

Lostwithiel 3 miles; Bodmin 10 miles.

For those seeking peace, tranquillity and the unspoilt splendour of Cornwall’s ‘softer’ southern coast there can be few finer spots than Lerryn. Sitting at the very point where the River Lerryn joins the highest tidal reach of a creek leading up from the Fowey estuary, the village has a timeless, natural beauty no matter the season. Footpaths meander through the woods and along the river bank while out on the water the small boats owned by local residents provide another means of travelling down stream to Fowey (3.5miles) for shopping or just something to do in wonderful surroundings. The village boasts an award winning pub/restaurant and has a small shop and post office. Nearby Lostwithiel is renowned also for its good restaurants and antique shops. The stunning Eden Project (8 miles), the Shipwreck Harbour at Charlestown, the lovely fishing village and harbour of Mevagissey, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the stately home and gardens at Lanhydrock (NT) can all be reached in under half an hour while Padstow and the rolling surf of the north coast are just over 20 miles away.

Note: Induction hob.
