Situated in the hamlet of Tresarrett, Bridge Pool Cottage, is a nature lovers dream......

Nestling on the banks of the River Camel, its unique riverside location, offers its guests total peace and tranquilty, wonderful views and accommodation full of olde-world charm and character...... Visit Britain 4 Star Gold Award

"a real hidden treasure".....

If a rural setting is a change for you, waking up at Bridge Pool Cottage will be a special treat....

you will almost certainly wake to the morning song

of the birds that visit the garden and rivers edge

and the antics of the early morning Kingfisher

is a treat not to be missed.

You may also be lucky enough to witness the

morning activities of the resident Otters and Stoats,

whilst enjoying your Breakfast in the conservatory, with its wonderful views along the river bank.

Night time brings along different creature delights,

you will almost certainly see the families of Bats

swopping low across the river and on clear, dry nights,

you will hopefully see and hear the

Owls out for their nightly feed.

The hamlet of Tresarrett, lies on the fringes of

Bodmin Moor, with its impressive granite tors

and sweeping expanses of open moorland,

deep valley rivers and oak woodlands

abundant with snowdrops, primroses, bluebells,

foxgloves and campion during spring and summer....

The north coast of Cornwall with its

dramatic, rugged rocky landscape, large waves

and the busier tourist towns and villages is just a

few miles away, whilst the south coastline,

with its much softer landscape, featuring tidal estuaries and quaint sleepy fishing villages

is less than thirty minutes drive to its nearest point.

Much closer to hand is the pretty village of Blisland, just a two minute drive from the cottage, or a very pleasant walk along the footpath.

Here you will find the Blisland Inn, an award winning Camra pub, renowned for its fine selection

of ales and good food. There is also a village shop

and post office.

Just a little further afield is St Breward

and the picturesque village of St Kew,

both having wonderful old pubs, serving excellent food.

Bodmin, is our nearest town just 4 miles,

where you will find all the usual shops and facilities.

For those that prefer to leave the car behind and travel by bike or foot, the famous Camel Trail, an area of 'Special Conservation' passes right by our cottage, winding its way through some of the most spectacular countryside in Cornwall, ideal for walking or cycling without the hindrance of cars....following the river with beautiful mixed woodlands, which have an air of timeless peace and quiet about them.....whilst the mudflats and salt marshes of the estuary around Padstow, are home to some very important birdlife.

Game fishing available with its 120 foot frontage situated at one of the best 'pools'

on the River.

"Best place in Cornwall"

This is our home away from home - we return year after year & just love 'coming home'.
Everything is just as you would want it - amazing cottage, very well equipped - particularly love the master bedroom and the conservatory overlooking the river. Full fishing rights & my husband has caught salmon twice from the best pool in the river- perfect. The Camel Trail is right next to the cottage on the other side - great for cycling and dog walking alike. Our dogs know exactly where they are going when we turn up & just love their holiday too. Because you have 3 bedrooms it gives us a chance to have all the family meet up & to stay together, but with enough space to not feel trapped..... just remember you can't stay here on 'OUR' week lol

Thank you for finding the time to review our cottage and we are so glad you gathered wonderful memories.

"8th stay here ! Wonderful ."

We have been coming to this lovely cottage for years and always have a great stay . We fish for salmon and only occasionally have not caught some .The cottage is of a very high standard and provides everything you need for your stay .The joy of this cottage is it's proximity to the river that can be fished from the garden and the Camel Trail that takes you to Padstow. The conservatory is a lovely peaceful room with views of the river. The village is only a few minutes away and has a post office village shop and a pub that serves good food .

Thank you for finding the time to review our cottage and staying here 8 years running says a lot.
