Overview

Description

Delphy Cottage

Named after Delford (Delfy) Bridge, a pretty stone bridge and popular picnic area on the Moor, this recently built cottage has been sympathetically designed to maintain many of the rural characteristics of old Cornish cottages with the benefits of modern design. A single story cottage with exposed beams, it has an open plan living area which includes washer/tumble dryer, fridge, cooker, microwave, TV with DVD/freeview and selection of DVDs, games and books. Wi-Fi access is included.


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.

Lovely cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely cottage, very comfortable with everything we might possibly need. It is in a beautiful and peaceful location, ideal for walking on the moors or for visiting the coast. The cream tea was very welcome after a long drive and was a lovely touch. We really enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my other half for his birthday weekend and had the best weekend. We were warmly welcomed on arrival, The cottage was lovely and has everything you need, even nice little touches like flowers, hot chocolate, and a little welcome gift. Eden project and the lost gardens were at an easy half hour drive. I do recommend the Sunday roast at the local pub.

Will defiantly be staying again

A very cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Cornwall and the cottage was a perfect base for touring the area. The satnav had a mind of it's own and took us down some very narrow roads so every day was an adventure. The cottage provided everything we needed for our stay and the cream tea on arrival was delicious.

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.
