2 miles from St Cleer and one from open moorland (Bodmin Moor) is Merryfield Manor, a remarkable and splendid house - a latter-day 'manor house' (thick-walled, oak-beamed, Delabole-slate-roofed), granite-built with their own hands by its owners. Much appreciated for many years, it has its own private indoor heated swimming pool (available 8am to 8pm) attached to the owners' house. It is 100 yards off a very quiet lane, beside a 114 acre farm (sheep, cattle, lambs in spring, organic) and close to N379. Good-sized, enclosed garden (flowers, shrubs, lawn, apple trees, barbecue, table/chairs) and gravelled forecourt. Across this is the indoor heated swimming pool (30' x 13' x 3'6" deep), changing room (shower, loo, basin) and sauna. The house has oak front door; flagstoned hall; house-height, beamed living room ('great hall') with flagstoned floor (rugs), mighty granite fireplace (woodburner - logs included), TV/DVD and 'minstrels gallery'; big, well-equipped kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, solid fuel Rayburn, double electric oven/ceramic hob) with oak units, slate floor, big refectory table/benches, TV and door to patio and lawn. Five bedrooms – two downstairs: a twin suitable for wheelchair users with shower-room (suite, second door to living room), and one with 3' bunks. Upstairs, three bedrooms – the master double (5' bed, footboard) with dressing room and en suite shower-room (suite), another double, and a twin – and bathroom (suite with separate shower, doors to twin and smaller double). Suitable for wheelchair users. The extremely good owners live nearby.

The West Country region

South Cornwall: between the river Tamar and river Fowey and south of Bodmin Moor is inland Cornwall at its most gentle and lovely: deep, wooded valleys (including on Bodmin Moor's southern edge) between sheep and cattle-grazed fields; tidal creeks (exceptionally pretty Lerryn is on one of them). Most of it is delightfully by-passed by main roads.

On the coast are long sandy beaches (Whitsand Bay), high headlands and sandy coves at the foot of cliffs (Lantic Bay) to walk to, two of Cornwall's loveliest cove villages (Kingsand, Cawsand) and a classic fishing village (Polperro). From Looe - river-mouth fishing village/resort with sandy beach - you can fish and sail. Round here Daphne du Maurier lived and wrote. A branch line railway chugs pleasantly from Liskeard to Looe. Don't miss the Musical Instrument Museum near St Keyne. Just to the west is Cornwall's star modern attraction, The Eden Project, worth a once-a-year visit into the future indefinite, and Lanhydrock, a very lovely National Trust house and garden. Beyond them begins the extraordinary and spectacular china clay country, good for a visit (excellent museum). You should go to Cotehele beside the Tamar, too, and Calstock for the 'messing about in boats' activity.

Liskeard

St Cleer: small village (two pubs, shop) in Bodmin Moor's foothills (farmland/woods). Liskeard (market town, leisure centre), 2½ miles. Good walking country (waterfall in woods, legendary rock formations, prehistoric remains). The sea at Looe, and Lanhydrock (lovely Nat. Trust house), 12 miles; Siblyback Lake (fishing, watersports), 2. Golf at Liskeard or St Mellion, 8.
