|Further details indoors||
Landaviddy Manor was built in the mid to late 17th century by Richard Foster, banker of Liskeard and magistrate and wealthy land owner.
This house is for the guest who appreciates original buildings and wishes to stay in a house of the period unspoiled by unsympathetic modernising, knocked down walls, painted brick work, fitted melamine kitchens and spot lights. Yet, modernised with all the comforts of modern living such as central heating, modern utilities, and light and airy living.
Lounge – A large comfortable lounge superbly equipped with a flat screen TV/digital TV/DVD & CD/tape machine IPOD speakers, plus a cosy large log fire for those cooler summer evenings, views over the garden. Snug/bar room adjacent, ideal for socializing away from the children. Furnished with bar seats and copper tables.
Dining room - Can easily seat all guests and has a grand piano for those musically minded (the piano however is an antique straight string and does not produce the sound quality of a more modern instrument) Has a log fire.

The West Country region
Landaviddy is situated on the hill to the west side of the ancient and picturesque fishing port of Polperro with its restaurants and historical public houses. The village is renowned for its quaint narrow lanes and whitewashed cottages and still retains its olde world charm. The coastal walks in both directions are breathtaking.
South Cornwall enjoys the most sunshine in England and is an area of great natural beauty. We are on the edge of romantic Daphne du Maurier country with a fantastic coastline dotted with sandy beaches, secluded coves and charming fishing villages.
Place to visit include Looe, Fowey, Mevagissey, Lansallos, Talland Bay, Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Liskeard, & Truro. There are lovely beaches to explore, plus a selection of adventure parks and wildlife attractions for children. The South West Way coast path is easily accessible from the grounds. Fishing, golf, sailing, canoeing, and many other activities are available nearby. There are numerous historic sites and properties to visit like Mount Edgecombe and Lanhydrock.
Children will want to visit Porfell Animal Farm and the Monkey Sanctuary, both a short drive away.
