    “Absolutely beautiful, peaceful place to stay - very well maintained, clean, warm and comfortable.”

    Highly recommended! There were only 2 small details that I wish we'd known in advance: 1/ The pillows and duvets were feather-filled, so we had to go and buy a sleeping bag for our asthmatic son. 2/ Although the property is advertised as accepting well-behaved dogs, the listing does not specify that this means dogs kept off furniture. Our dog is very well-behaved, but is used to curling up next to us on a sofa. This needs to be made clearer in the advertising.

The property

Right on the banks of Dozmary Pool near Altarnun in Cornwall, 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 or paddling, informal fishing, 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.

Glazed doors into open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with granite worktops, slate floor, WIFI, TV 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 is steeped in the legend of King Arthur and Excalibur.

It is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

It is good for paddling, swimming, canoeing, walking and wildlife watching.

*Be aware that it is shallow - no deeper than 1.5 metres.

About the location

ALTARNUN

Launceston 8 miles; Boscastle 14 miles; Port Isaac 18 miles.

A very pretty village on the edge of Bodmin Moor, located close to the A30, making it the perfect base from which to tour the many visitor attractions within easy reach. Altarnun itself boasts quaint stone cottages, a stream running through the village, a lovely old church, and a traditional country pub. After a long day exploring the stunning countryside around Bodmin Moor this is an ideal place in which to unwind. Explore four unique villages, Boscastle, Tintagel, Port Isaac and Crackington Haven, each situated along the dramatic unspoiled coastline of North Cornwall. Port Isaac, a filming location in Doc Martin, is a busy port where you can still watch the fishermen hard at work. Walking and cycling are popular activities in this area and there are beautiful churches and historic buildings to discover. Venture a little further afield and walk the high tors of Bodmin Moor, surf the waves of the North Cornish coast, sample the delights of the Eden Project or take a cruise from Truro down the misty reaches of the River Fal to Falmouth. There's something for everyone nearby, from moors and river valleys to beaches and harbours, stately homes and museums to potteries and galleries.

Note: Arrival after 4.30pm.
