Quietly tucked away off a private drive in Lerryn, a 350 yard stroll from the pub, shop and picturesque creek, a spacious, detached, single-storey cottage converted with skill and imagination from a barn. Lots of natural materials, oak floors, high apex beams and wood-clad ceilings - everything done to a high standard, smart and contemporary. Surrounded by a good-sized, enclosed garden - at the front, pretty passion flower and clematis trail over walls behind a raised, suntrap terrace (picnic table) and deck; at the back, a lush, mainly lawned, shrub and fern-filled garden (unfenced leat) with lovely outlook over fields beyond and little sitting-out area (picnic table) for evening sun.
Step up to stable doors to 48' long living/dining/kitchen with free-standing units (slimline dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker), woodburner, TV/DVD. Utility/boot room (washing machine, tumble drier) with door to back garden. Two bedrooms, one at each end of the cottage - small step up to a double (5' sleigh bed) with en suite shower-room (suite), and a twin; bathroom (suite, shower over bath). No children under 5, except pre-crawling babies. A lovely location in a quiet corner of this pretty village.

All ground floor. Two bedrooms: 1 x king-size double with sleigh bed and en suite shower-room, 1 x a twin. Open plan living area with sitting area with wood burning stove, kitchen and dining area. Utility room. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC.
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.
