We have just had our first proposal and she accepted !!! Soooooooo romantic.

The sun is shining at last. We have been having such lovely sunny days. The weather has been glorious and our guests have been able to sit outside with a glass or two !

The evenings can be chilly, but, guests have kept warm and cosy by the woodburner. The logs are complimentary ! We do not charge any extras to your rental price.

Philip the Pheasant is gathering his harem at the moment, the rabbits are very much in evidence, although Roley Moley appears to be keeping a low profile.

The Banda is completely detached and separate from the main house.

The hallway, contains a cloakroom with loo, stairs lead you up to your bedroom and ensuite shower room.

Downstairs, you have a comfortable sitting area, with a WOODBURNER , 2 large sofas, TV etc.

A large patio door, floods the room with light, or close the wooden doors and forget the world outside.The kitchen/dining area is well equipped .

Full Central Heating.

The price shown is all inclusive.

Outside, are chairs, loungers, and a fire pit, to enjoy a glass of wine, or a hot chocolate by.

Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, on Bodmin Moor, it is midway between the A30 and A38, four miles below Jamaica Inn.

The award winning village of St Neot and The London Inn are a mile and a half away. Within walking distance, although uphill and down dale through the bluebell wood.

Completely self- contained, you are welcome to enjoy our three acres of grounds, and enjoy the stunning views. (Plucking the odd weed as you wander is actively encouraged !) A short walk up our lane takes you onto Bodmin Moor. We cannot promise you a sighting of The Beast, however Philip the Pheasant and his entourage are usually evident, as is Rolie Moley !

A short drive takes you to the beaches of the south coast and Looe, Polperro and Fowey, a little longer to the north coast. The Eden Project is within easy reach.

The beautiful Cornish countryside, quiet seclusion, (excluding the occasional moo from the cows or baas from the sheep in an adjoining field! ) comfort and relaxation are on offer, when you stay in our Banda.

We have a good mobile signal and Internet is available , by the main house, complimentary, on request.

The Banda is not suitable for children, and is STRICTLY TWO adults only.

"Cosy accomodation in lovely surroundings"

The Banda is a lovely cottage, very well equipped, and set in beautiful grounds. The owner was very gracious and offered to help if there was anything we needed. They had thought of everything, the lo… More

It is always great to hear that our guests enjoyed their stay. We are secluded, but that is the joy of being able to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and relax. However it is not too far to civilisation ! Thank you .

"Quiet Location"

Cottage fine, if a bit cluttered. Seemed to be vast amounts of cups and cutlery - enough for a small army! We were warm without needing the woodburning stove. Weather a bit mixed - sunshine and heav… More

We are pleased that you enjoyed the peace of our Cornish countryside, and thank you for your comments.
We have found that guests have preferred having the 8 pairs of crockery and cutlery that we provide, as it enables them to pop items in the dishwasher and not spend time washing up. We also, have not had any other comments re.clutter ? and prefer to make The Banda, homely, rather than sparse.
We are always happy to receive constructive comments and listen to our guests.
Thank you, once again.

"Insolite et innatendu"

Cette petite maison dans le Bodmin Moor nous a bien plu par son équipement très complet. Entourée de landes et d'animaux en liberté comme les poneys. Les propriétaires sont très charmants e… More
