A lovely property in beautiful surroundings. Perfect get away holiday cottage .

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay. Very spacious cottage. A lot of thought has gone into the attention to detail. Ideal location next to Cardinham woods . Our dogs enjoyed their stay as much as we did. A delightful retreat not far from the wonderful sights that Cornwall has to offer. We will definitely be returning . I suspect this is our new annual haunt ! We didn't want to leave !

Fabulous secluded stone house in the heart of the woods in the middle of Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the house after a long drive to find a fabulous welcome pack allowing us to unpack and sit down to coffee and home-made cake.

The house was as described with a brilliant owners pack explaining how everything worked and where everything was.

The proximity to the woods is great and allows for brilliant walks, off-road cycling and cafe grazing. It’s worth noting the steep slope in and out which may prove challenging to the less able.

Bodmin with its supermarkets and amenities is a 5 minute drive away and the houses location is central, allowing you to explore all that Cornwall has to offer.

The owners communication was first rate and nothing was too much trouble.

A truly fabulous holiday experience. We would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of Lower Margate. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay. With the woods on the doorstep it is perfect for those who like to cycle and walk although I have to confess the cafe is my favourite. I have plans for the driveway to make access a lot easier to negotiate. So maybe by your next visit you will find it improved. Fondest wishes Helen Lower margate

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic location for all the family. Great house for the children and dogs a like as there is room for everyone and the children have their own playroom. Lovely grounds and plenty of parking.

So many places near by to visit and Cardinham woods literally just down the lane so coffee,cake and walking all in your door step.

Very comfy beds and lovely open fire along with an everhot oven all makes the house a home from home, especially with the welcome pack which has all the essentials to start you off including a most delicious chocolate cake

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house in a beautiful setting. The perfect place for a peaceful holiday, ideally situated for beaches, lovely villages, walking, cycling, etc. we have just enjoyed a lovely week there with family, and the two small boys, 6 and 4, were permanently occupied, either in the garden or the playroom. Well done, Helen, for creating such a magical place!

Beautiful bolt hole

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to stay in this wonderful house at the beginning of August. Very secluded but within striking distance of all that Cornwall has to offer. Stylish, comfortable, eveything you need is here. Loved by all the family, we look forward to returning again soon.

Location

From the Owner

I fell in love with the house from the first moment that I saw it, the beauty of the location and ease of getting there without all the hassle of winding roads. For me the house is a place I like to come to relax and spend time with family and friends, and to be able to explore all that Cornwall has to offer. There is so much more to the area than just the beach, and I have found so many stunning places right on my doorstep. The house has the benefit of being close enough to the main A30 route without the noise and hustle and bustle. Bodmin is a short drive away and has all the expected local amenities from supermarkets of which (Sainsburys, Tesco and Asda will deliver). There is also a sports centre, and a minor injuries unit at the local hospital.

If your hobby is sewing and quilting, then Cowslip Quilts in Launceston offer courses after which you and your group could come back to the house and continue with plenty of room in the conservatory to set up your sewing machines.
