Set in a sleepy hamlet on the edge of Altarnun, this pretty Grade II-listed detached cottage is in the perfect location for exploring some of Cornwall’s most popular towns and attractions
In a hamlet near famously beautiful Altarnun village, this attractive Grade II-listed cottage, finished in warm-tinted stucco, is an ideal character holiday retreat, perfectly sized for small families. With many original features to charm and delight, it's been lovingly fitted out to create a welcoming and homely base for exploring wild Bodmin Moor just to the southwest for renowned walking and horse trekking country, and the rugged North Cornish coast for daytrips to beaches, picturesque villages, and many of Cornwall's attractions.
You'll love the original slate floors downstairs and the traditionally-finished bedrooms upstairs, with solid timber beams and window lintels showing the original construction, and selected stonework exposed in the hand-sculpted plaster walls. The emphasis is on cottage-style charm, with quirky rustic details, an imposing stone fireplace in the lounge with wrought iron cooking implements hanging beside the wood burner, and solid wood furnishings. Outside, the enclosed gardens offer the perfect spot on the patio to linger over breakfast or enjoy the countryside views over a sunny lunch.
The many walks of Bodmin Moor beckon, including Roughtor, Cornwall's highest peak, 10 miles away. On the way back through Bolventor within 7 miles, why not pause at Jamaica Inn, made famous by Daphne du Maurier's much-loved novel. On the North Cornish coast, drive 15 miles to Tintagel for a fix of Arthurian romance, or to Crackington Haven within 13 miles for a day of beach fun. Locally, Altarnun is a 3-mile drive away and has a shop and a welcoming village pub.
