Overview

About the property

Cottage in Cardinham Woods, Bodmin, Cornwall, England - Beautiful Forest Location, 25 Mins Drive From Nearest Beach

The price shown includes the owners direct online service charge. If you would like approximately 10% off please contact and pay us directly. This charge is only added if you use the online booking option.

We charge £5 per person per night for occupancy of over 4 people.

Cardinham woods is a 600 acre forestry commission woodland and you will be staying at the very heart of this beautiful valley and all that it has to offer. With miles of way marked walking trails, a kids play park, BBQ pits and the infamous Bodmin Beast mountain bike trail there is plenty to see and do to get you and your family outdoors. Bodmin town is only 5 mins drive and offers supermarkets, banks and most high street requirements. Bodmin is very central in Cornwall and as such you are only 30 minutes form either the North or South Coast of Cornwall and can drive to Eden in about 25 mins. A perfect location to truly explore Cornwall in the knowledge that the evening quiet of the woods awaits on your return. Although we welcome children of any age please note that there are a number of outside concrete steps to reach the front door of the property so toddlers will probably need escorting!

We have a check out time of 10am and a check in time after 2.30pm.

About David Spurrell

Lara and David are Cornish born and bred and in fact David grew up a few miles up the valley on Bodmin moor to a sheep farming family. We have a young family and love running our little cafe in the woods.

We have run the award winning Woods Cafe for 8 years and lived above it in this flat until December 2014 when we finally managed to buy our own home. We thought people might really enjoy staying in this haven in the middle of Cornwall.

The flat is lovely and cosy and the woods are amazing with all the changing seasons and the changing times of day. One of my personal favourite things are the rooks and crows coming in to roost in the evenings during the winter months.

David Spurrell purchased this cottage in 2009

Unique flat in beautiful Cardinham Woods

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed the week in Cardinham Woods. The flat had everything we needed and is well situated. We visited many places including Bodmin Jail, Geevor Tin Mine, Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan and had many walks in the woods with the children and dog. The children spent a day at Badger Forest School and we even visited friends in Devon. There was no TV so we were able to spend quality time together in the evenings playing games, which we wouldn't usually do! Woods Cafe treated us to an amazing Cornish cream tea and the owners were lovely. Would recommend and visit again. Thank you very much.

Lovely flat, perfect for a family of 5. The staff from the tea rooms were so helpful and kind. And the cream teas were delicious. Thank you so much 😊

Very nice place, friendly hosts.

  • 5 of 5

It is a great place to go, a bit busy during the day, but very calm in the evenings. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the house is convenient (if you don't need any unnecessary extra comfort).

Lovely, cosy, relaxing place to stay. Staff in cafe very friendly too, and the best cream tea around

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful, peaceful surroundings, and pretty holiday accommodation. Staff in cafe very friendly, and complimentary milk, bread and eggs on arrival. Quite steep steps up to the flat, and the pathway could do with clearing a bit to make access easier, particularly at night. Lovely, cosy interior, but the floors were quite grubby and hadn't been cleaned and some dust/cobwebs around. More attention to cleaning before guests arrive please. No TV, which actually was nice but there was a radio in the lounge. Great area for walking and not too far from beaches, towns and cider farms! There is a Morrison's about 5 mins drive away, so handy for groceries. Amazing cream teas and homemade cakes - highly recommend. I expect we will be returning before too long 😊

Owner's Response: Hi Ruth, Thanks so much for your review, we can only apologise if the flat was not up to standard with regard the cleanliness but are really glad you are coming down to see us again next year! David and Lara.
