  • “What a place!”

    We absolutely loved our stay at Domzary Pool, and will definitely be back. ...

    We absolutely loved our stay at Domzary Pool, and will definitely be back. The location is amazing - so peaceful, with only one neighbour - and many cows! The barn was spotless when we arrived with really nice fittings, and was definitely very comparable to ‘5 tick’ cottages we’ve stayed at. The only points for improvement would be - a coffee machine would be an amazing addition and the curtains were not lined so lots of early wake ups from the children as the sun streamed through. But overall a truly excellent property, would recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful location, whilst being easily accessible for great walks and beaches. We took the owners recommendation and visited Daymer Bay beach and it was great, beautiful sand and interesting rock pools. Can’t wait to return.

The property

Right on the banks of Dozmary Pool, a detached lakeside house with far-reaching views across the lake and beyond.

Converted from a stone barn, now thoroughly modernised and surrounded by a walled garden, offering fantastic peace and tranquillity (only one other residence near).

This is a glorious waterside place for wild swimming, informal fishing, fun with your boat and all sorts of outdoor larks.

The occasional horse rider or walker may pass, but here are mostly the sounds of nature (skylarks, water fowl, buzzards) and stunning night skies.

Four hundred yards of tarmac drive to large car/boat parking area.

Glazed doors into open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with granite worktops, slate floor, WIFI, TV/DVD and woodburner.

Ground-floor double bedroom (5' bed, limited clothes-hanging space) with lake views and en suite shower-room (suite).

Stairs up to two twin bedrooms, one with door to terrace (table/chairs) and both with a view of the lake; bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

Washing machine and tumble drier in laundry/utility room.

Arrival after 4.30pm.

For fabulous Swallows and Amazons adventures, or simply soaking up the peace and silence, this is the place to be. Dozmary Pool: lake on Bodmin Moor steeped in legend of King Arthur and Excalibur, now a Site of Special Scientific Interest, good for paddling, fishing, kayaking, walking and wildlife watching.

Jamaica Inn, made famous by du Maurier's tale of smugglers, at Bolventor, 1¼ miles; St Neot (pub, church), 5; Bodmin (town), 12.

The sea at Trebarwith Strand, 20 miles.

About the location


The vast and rugged Bodmin Moor, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, forms over 150 square miles of striking, rocky landscape, with much of it declared a Site of Specific Scientific Importance. This ancient location is home to mystical standing stones, old buildings dating from medieval times and thousands of years’ worth of tin mining heritage. There are plenty of beautiful walks to discover, with challenging climbs up some of the tallest spots in Cornwall, offering fantastic far-reaching views towards both the north and south coast on fine days.

Note: There is four hundred yards of Tarmac drive to large car/boat parking area. Arrival after 4.30pm.
