2 Bedroom Flat Above An Award Winning Cafe.

Overview

Property

Updated: 19-Oct-2016
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.

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 the Owner

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 7 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.

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 😊

Sehr urige Unterkunft mitten im Wald

  • 4 of 5

Sehr ruhig im Wald gelegene Unterkunft, daher auch etwas schwer zu finden. Die Wohnung ist sehr urig, teilweise auch modern (Induktionsherd) eingerichtet und direkt über einem Cafe gelegen, das von vielen als Ausflugsziel genutzt wird. Da die Unterkunft im Wald liegt ist es nachts absolut ruhig, morgens um 06:00 können aber durchaus der ein oder ander LKW (Anlieferung, Müllabfuhr) für Unruhe sorgen. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und können uneingeschränkt weiterempfohlen werden, vielen Dank auch nochmal für Butter, Brot und Eier, das war klasse, denn so mussten wir am nächsten Morgen nicht erst einkaufen gehen. Was uns etwas gestört hatte war, dass es keine separate Toilette gab und das Bad auch nicht abschließbar war. Insgesamt kann man diese Unterkunft aber durchaus weiterempfehlen, wer Luxus sucht ist hier aber falsch.

Wonderful property in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this delightful property. David and Lara were extremely welcoming and we really appreciated the little touches. There was bread, milk, tea, coffee, sugar provided which makes all the difference when you are travelling as a family and you don't have to take them. The property itself was perfect for our holiday - clean, cosy and located above the fantastic Woods Cafe. As the weather was pretty changeable during our visit we spent many a happy hour in the cafe! The staff were delightful. You cannot beat the location and with an excellent play area right outside our daughter was in her element. We would definitely return and would have no hesitation in recommending this property. Thank you David and Lara for making our stay so welcome!

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the most wonderful holiday staying here. The flat is so prettily decorated, well equipped, comfortable beds, and beautifully clean. We loved having the big garden and outdoor fire. We stayed with two teenage girls and a Springer Spaniel who all enjoyed the freedom to roam. We brought 4 bikes with us (but could have hired them here) and made great use of the mountain bike trails especially in an evening after coming back from a day out at the beach/Newquay surfing/Eden Project/Tintagel/etc. The road into the wood is 5mins from the A30 and A38. The cafe downstairs is fabulous for lunch and afternoon tea. It gets busy outside in nice weather between 11am and 4pm. There is no TV, but we didn't miss it, there's good wi fi and lots to do. The owners could not have been more helpful and friendly. Thank you.
