  • “We have been to Dozmary before in appalling weather but the cottage is so good it does not matter!”

    The weather wasn’t much better this time but it was still as lovely and as comfortable and well appointed. Our dogs also love it because of the underfloor heating.

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 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/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 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


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.
