Bungalow | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
West View is a modern purpose built holiday bungalow that provides comfortable, good value accommodation for the self-catering holiday maker. The bungalow is decorated to a high standard throughout.
It is situated at Rosecraddoc Lodge, a collection of bungalows, all privately owned, built in the grounds of the old Rosecraddoc Manor. There is a public house that serves the site, but no noisy night clubs, amusement arcades or swimming pools. This is for people and families who are looking for a peaceful holiday in the countryside. It is however, close enough to major roads to make it easy to visit the attractions of Cornwall and West Devon on day trips before returning to 'base' each evening.

The West Country region
Cornwall is the number one holiday destination in England for good reason,with something for everyone including spectacular coastline, great beaches, small fishing villages hidden away, rolling countryside, moorland and many places of interest.
Our visitors enjoy a variety of activities according to their age and tastes. Those with young children may enjoy the beaches and the farms, particularly Trethorne Leisure Farm, the Tamar Donkey Sanctuary or perhaps the nearby Monkey Park. Those without children may enjoy some of the many National Trust properties or gardens in the county, or just exploring the varied countryside with walks over the moors or along the rugged coastline. Many will want to discover the settings for novels written by the likes of Daphne du Maurier and Rosamunde Pilcher, whose 'Day of the Storm' was adapted for German television.
Those with an interest in history will enjoy a day out in Plymouth or Bodmin or discovering the old tin mines or China Clay works. Some may like to travel on one or two of the local railways, including the Liskeard-Looe branch line or the steam trains from Bodmin or over Dartmoor.
The possibilities seem endless and it's likely that one trip to Cornwall will not be enough!
Liskeard is an old Stannary town in south-east Cornwall. Most of our visitors use the supermarkets in Liskeard, although many prefer the local produce available in the Farm shop at St. Cleer, just a couple of minutes drive from Rosecraddoc.
The nearest coastal town is Looe, famous as a fishing port, supplying some of the best fish to the markets in London and Europe. Close to Looe is Polperro, famous for its narrow streets leading down to the coast.
Bodmin Moor has a long history of tin mining and today the ruins of old mines provide interest for walkers and historians. Some of our visitors enjoy a short trip to either Sibleyback or Colliford Lakes. Fishing is available at both.
Dartmoor provides an opportunity for ramblers to discover the famous tors and to enjoy the spectacular scenery of south-west Devon, while Plymouth provides a complete contrast as a busy coastal city with its maritime traditions.
