The West Country region
This south west county enjoys a milder climate than much of England, and consequently Cornwall has long been a popular all year round self catering holiday getaway. The North Cornwall area provides the best surfing in England, with towns like Newquay, Perranporth, Polzeath, St Ives and Bude filling with enthusiasts every year.
There are scenic towns such as Penzance to explore and delicious Cornish pasties to sample. Cornwall also has Celtic links and the legend of King Arthur which can be explored at Tintagle's castle. If you fancy something a little more refined, the fishing port of Padstow offers the famous seafood restaurant run by chef Rick Stein.
There is excellent walking on Bodmin Moor, domain of the legendary beast, and the coastline is wild and beautiful.
Lesquite Farmhouse has a most attractive setting a short distance down a quiet country lane and just around a corner from an entrance into the wonderful scenery of Redmoor Nature Reserve with its ponds and an abundance of wildlife.
The property faces south and has fine views towards the well known beauty spot of Helman Tor.
Whilst enjoying such an attractive country setting, the property is within a short drive of the B3268 road between the larger centre of Bodmin to the north and the attractive small town of Lostwithiel to the south and is less than ten minutes drive for its junction with the A30 trunk road dual carraigeway giving quick access to Exeter in less than one hour and other parts of the county.
The property is about a twenty minute drive only from the coastal town of Fowey. Close by and leading over the top of Helman Tor is the Saints Way, an old path dating back to the middle ages extending from Fowey to the south through to the harbour town of Padstow on the north Cornwall coast.
