Grade II Listed roundhouse, with vaulted ceilings, exposed stonework, beams and trusses, on this rural idyll with ponies, pig, hens and sheep, play area and indoor play barn with easy access to the Cornish coast.
This character property's stand-out feature is its amazing double-height living/dining room: a Grade II-listed traditional Cornish hexagonal roundhouse. It's one of four properties on a 20-acre farm, set in rural peace 5 miles from pretty Boscastle on the North Cornish coast. It has plenty of space for family time together, and access to shared facilities - a games barn, soft play room and outdoor play area. Children will love meeting the resident farm animals: sheep, a very personable pig, hens and ponies. You're also ideally placed to explore North Cornwall's varied attractions.
The roundhouse has a spectacular radial-pitched ceiling and barn-sized garden doors to let the light flood in. Solid timber beams throughout and exposed stonework show the solid structure recalling the past. The feel overall is comfort and homely cottage style. You are welcome to wander the grounds – there's a ‘secret garden' where, after dark, you can gather around the firepit to tell stories. While children roam, adults can sample local craft ales or host a BBQ.
From the door you can walk to Bodmin Moor over 3 miles of footpaths, or further afield drive to Bolventor in the middle of the moor where there's a great circular walk – why not dine afterwards at romantic Jamaica Inn? For a beach day, sheltered Bossiney Cove is 7 miles away. Boscastle and Tintagel are 7 miles away and wreathed in myth and legend are ideal for a seaside visit, and clifftop walks along the South West Coast Path have inspiring views.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
