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.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
