About the property

2 bedrooms * sleeps 4 * 1 bathroom * fully equipped kitchen

Five delightful Cornish cottages on the edge of Bodmin Moor yet ideally located to reach any part of Cornwall. On the doorstep is uninterrupted countryside views, officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and yet close to the coast - best of both worlds. Moorland ponies, sheep and cattle are your neighbours which graze on the adjacent Bodmin Moor.

Three of the cottages retain many of their original features, such as the traditional Cornish stone walls and exposed beams. Delphy and Barn Cottage, whilst newly built maintain character with the benefits of modern design. Recently under new management, all the cottages have gone through a period of refurbishment so whilst being full of character, they are also full of comfort. Situated on a former working farm and set in 5 acres of private land, guests are welcome to explore the property as they wish.

Things To Do

There's just so much to do and we hope that our enthusiasm for what this part of the country has to offer will come across to you here!

Detailed below you will find various activities which may interest you:

Horse Riding

The riding stables adjacent to us, provide hacks during the popular months of the year. Riding out on the moor from your cottage is just fantastic.

Walking and Hiking

Bodmin Moor is also fantastic for walking and hiking, with Rough Tor and Brown Willy (the two highest points in Cornwall ) viewable from Ladydown Moor. Explore the tors, streams and stone circles in this fascinating Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Camel Trail & Cycling

The Camel Trail is one of Cornwall's best known attractions and is a cycle path that runs for about 26 miles along a disused railway track and the Camel Estuary. It runs from Padstow up onto the Moor, passing through the town of Wadebridge , and covers some of the most stunning scenery you're likely to encounter in this country. The track is level and even the youngest child can enjoy the day out. The Camel Trail is just a short distance from your cottage. Bring your own bikes, or alternatively, we can recommend various bike hire companies along the Camel trail. It is also possible for you to arrange for bikes to be delivered to your cottage if necessary.

Beaches

There are some fantastic beaches just a short drive away from Hallagenna Cottages which cater for all tastes of beach activity. The North Coast beaches are rugged and wild, with huge stretches of soft sand, rocky outcrops, cliffs and caves, and great surf for body boarders or surfers. It's easy to catch fishing boats, speedboats and short boat trips from places like Padstow and Rock.

Golf

There are nine golf courses within driving distance from your cottage. Bowood Park in Camelford,is very close by and is highly recommended, also St Enodoc Golf Club offers a mature golf course with stunning views out to sea. Contact details of many more courses are supplied within the cottages.

Historic & Cultural Sites

Cornwall is steeped in history with it's ancient settlements, stone circles, monuments, old tin mines and castles. It's varied scenery has been used as stunning backdrops for film locations and inspiration for novels.

Fishing Villages.

Cornwall retains many of its original fishing villages, including Port Isaac, which is set in the side of a hill and recently used as the setting for the TV series 'Doc Martin'. You can wander around the quaint narrow streets, leading up to the clliff side walk where you can view the stunning Atlantic Ocean. There are many other fishing villages on both the North and South Coast, including Boscastle, Charlestown , Mevagissey, Fowey & Padstow.

The Eden Project

It has brought millions of pounds of industry to Cornwall and is still growing in size and reputation. It's a very short drive from your cottage, about 1/2 hour, and is well worth a visit.

Excellent holiday accomodation

  • 4 of 5

Me, my wife and 12 year old daughter stayed at Hallagenna. Our cottage was very pleasant. Nice and clean on arrival, a very comfortable bed and a lovely outside area so we could enjoy a drink after our daily excursions.

WIFI inside the cottage was intermittent, but outside at the picnic table you could get full reception so no real problems at all.

Ross and Brenda were perfect hosts. They introduced themselves on arrival and informed us that if we needed anything to just let them know. The fact that we didn't need to bother them the whole week shows that everything was catered for within the cottage. Thank you for everything.

Ein Traumurlaub für uns

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine tolle Woche bei Brenda und Ross verbracht. Das Cottage war sehr schön und mit allem ausgestattet, was man so braucht. Es liegt direkt am Ladydown Moor und somit sehr ruhig. Wir haben uns besonders über den Cream Tea zum Empfang gefreut und werden bestimmt noch einmal hin fahren.

Bodmin Moor: Beautifull area

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week at Bodmin Moor. Owners are verry kind and the scones were delightfull (for us Dutch)

The cottage was well-maintained and the beds were sleeping great.

We would recommend this cottage becouse the nearby A30 was nearby and bring you to the bigger cities in no time.

If you are a walker, than this is a great area to be.

Another wonderful stay at Hallagenna

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time at Hallagenna and the second at Ladydown Cottage. Everything has been well thought out; outdoors the car parking is kept away from the courtyard with a one way through driveway, a picnic bench and resident Robin red breast are best saved for nicer days than those in late October.

Inside, the house is very clean and well appointed with nice touches, such as the log burner, a varied selection of DVDs and books to suit all tastes, Freeview TV and DVD player, plenty of towels on the beds, washing machine, etc. Heating was very easy to adjust to suit via thermostat.

Ross and Brenda, the owners, keep a fairly low profile (which I like) and are more than happy to help whenever needed.

The farm is very child friendly. There is a large wooden playhouse in the courtyard and the ponies provide plenty of stroking opportunities.

Locally, Bodmin provides supermarket shopping (ASDA does extremely cheap fuel there), St Breward has a decent enough local shop with a rather chatty owner, the Old Inn, which is just a 10 minute walk down the lane (take a torch at night) does very decent food and beer but can get busy, even on a weeknight, so think about booking, particularly if you are a large group.

Being on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Hallagenna is within striking distance of the seaside, both beach and wild cliff edge, but also retains a real 'away from it' feel.

The properties represent extemely good value, particularly in low season and I will definitely be returning in the future.

Car: recommended

A fabulous fly-drive base, the cottages are centrally located and situated in uninterrupted countryside officially designated by the World Heritage Organisation as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Open Moorland with wild horses is the view from your windows and yet the closest beaches are just a short drive away (Rock, Polzeath, Trebarwith Strand). Only a half mile stroll from the village of St Breward where you will find a village stores, post office and an Olde Worlde 11th century pub with roaring log fires and a Les Routiers Restaurant.

A few minutes away from the Camel Trail which runs from the Moor to Padstow, you can hire bikes locally, which will give you a great day out.

Just 4 miles from the main A30, both north and south coasts are easily accessible, as are Cornwalls many other varied attractions. Wadebridge is just 7 miles away if you would like a more cosmopolitan experience and is well served by all sorts of boutiques and supermarket.
