Overview

Description

Old Dairy Cottage

This cottage is attached to the main farmhouse and was once a milking parlor! Old Dairy has, however, been tastefully and carefully renovated to provide extremely comfortable accommodation with lots of outside space.

Accessed by a private driveway, Old Dairy has a log burning stove, two bedrooms (one double and one single), a large pine-fitted shower room and a kitchenette. 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.

There is a private patio to the front with garden furniture, and also a private patio side, this way you are sure to get the best of the sun, no matter what time of day!

A private barbecue is also provided so you can enjoy the warm Cornish sun.

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.

A fab little cottage on Bodmin Moor that suited our needs perfectly. Cannot wait to return in 2018.

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 night/4 day stay here was the first time in this part of Cornwall and also the latest we had ever stayed on our many holidays in the county so we were not sure how it would pan out but when we arrived and met Brenda we soon knew we had made a good choice. That was further enhanced when we opened the front door to find a complimentary Cornish cream tea waiting for us! The cottage that we had was perfect for the two of us and our Jack Russell , it was very nicely equipped and was in all truthfulness bang on what we wanted. Having Moorland literally and actually on our doorstep was another bonus as we had never walked the moors before and our JR was well impressed with all that his nose was discovering on his many walks there. I could go on and on about the many virtues of our stay here but I suggest you try it for yourself. The owners were a very friendly couple indeed when our paths crossed and must be very understanding indeed because our JR decided to moult profusely throughout our stay and although we tried our best to clean up about a billion grey hairs I reckon they still had a job to do after we left and as yet we havent been banned from returning so I will be looking to book a return in 2018 as soon as I can. My review has been totally positive because I really cannot find any negatives to speak of apart from the A30 having more miles of Dual Carriageway than our directions stated so we actually missed our turning off of it to head across the moor towards the village but hey ho it just meant we saw more Cornish miles than planned so not really a negative I guess. Cannot wait to return which I guess says it all.

Brilliant week at the edge of Bodmin moor.

  • 5 of 5

Greeted by a really nice couple. Scones , jam and cream waiting for us which was a nice touch. The cottage was lovely. Oak beams and wood burner. Small and cozy but very well equipped. Minimum of crockery and cutlery but this was good . The cottage stands in a sort of courtyard with a couple of others. It was wonderfully quiet and pretty.. Plenty of space to park. This is right on the edge of the moors which was great. A couple of yards away is a cattle grid that stops any animals coming through but the horses did come down this far to see us one day which was lovely. There is a very friendly pub - The Old Inn - about 20 min walk awy and a little shopand church alongside. The pub has a reputation for good food. We only tried it once but were a bit disappointed. Quantity not quality ! We found the situation great. There are a lot of twisting lanes to get there and to get to the coast but you soon get used to it. Great situation for Padstow, Port Isaac etc and the camel trail. Reccommend a day hiring bikes in Wadebridge and cycling by the beautiful camel estuary to Padstow. Walking on the moors fantastic.

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.
