One of four former barn conversions that enjoy views across picturesque lakes, moorlands, and the rolling hills of Caradon.
Find lakeside peace in a gorgeous converted barn blending traditional farmhouse feel with modern comforts. Just a mile from the edge of the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which straddles the Devon/Cornwall border, 3 miles north of Callington, this family-friendly property is an ideal base for exploration into both counties. Sink into holiday relaxation as you sip a sundowner on the bench overlooking the lake.
One of a family-run complex of four properties, Dairy Cottage occupies one end of the original barn, built in traditional local stone with a slate roof, and set in beautifully planted gardens. Extended families booking multiple properties can enjoy a hassle-free time away together. The layout is quirkily upside down, with spacious bedrooms downstairs and an open-plan kitchen/living area above to give great views over the gardens and lake. The natural wood flooring, solid wood furniture, exposed beams, and simple whitewashed walls create a harmonious balanced feel. An array of games are available in the shared garden such as croquet, football, basketball, swing ball, balls, soft tennis, hula hoops and frisbees.
On your doorstep, fishing around the estate's lakes is available, and there's a pub nearby. There are many delightful walks and cycle routes along the Tamar Valley, from postcard-pretty villages to fantastic pubs. Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor beckon with more rugged walking country. Or take in a seaside town – Looe, 20 miles away on the South Cornish coast, or picturesque Boscastle within 25 miles on the North Cornish coast. Plymouth is only 20 miles away, and has wide shopping and dining options, as well as attractions like the National Marine Aquarium in the Barbican district.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
