R81 - Meadowsweet Farm
Cottage | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 15
On the very edge of Burraton Coombe, a huge detached house very privately situated within 4 acres of grounds and landscaped garden. At the back, fenced from its formal garden, a deep lake (caution) full of roach and carp (fishing permitted on catch/return basis) created from a 19th cent. quarry; nature has reclaimed it, now dragon and damsel flies hover, swallows swoop and wildlife in general abounds. Safely away from the lake, a children's play area (swing, slide, trampoline).
The house rambles wonderfully over three levels with masses of space for everyone to find their own corner.
At entrance level: living room with open fire, TV/DVD and French windows to patio (barbecue); big fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, gas Aga, larder fridge) with table/chairs and French windows to terrace; utility room with electric cooker, freezer, larder fridge, breadmaker; boot/coat room; loo (washbasin); splendid, lofty dining hall with oak floor and table seating 14, off which: twin bedroom (zip-linkable to 6' double) with en suite shower-room (suite); laundry room (washing machine, tumble drier); loo (washbasin); little play den for small children.
From dining hall: stairs down to second living room with woodburner, oak floor, pool table, table football, TV/DVD, PlayStation 2, iPod dock and French windows to garden; two flights of stairs rather grandly climb to a conservatory (table/chairs, comfy chairs) with gorgeous views over the garden and lake, and to a gallery landing, off which a cosy reading area with sofas, bathroom (suite with slipper bath plus hand-shower, separate shower, double washbasins) and five more bedrooms:
- Big double (6' bed) with views over lake, TV/DVD, dressing room and en suite bathroom (suite plus bath-shower)
- Twin (zip-linkable to 6' double) with en suite shower-room (suite) - Double (5' four-poster bed) with TV/DVD

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.
Burraton Coombe: hamlet of scattered dwellings, a mile from the Tamar estuary tidal waters (boating, Forder Creek) and just west of Saltash (shops, pubs, restaurants, birdwatching boat trips). Easy access from A38. Golf at China Fleet Country Club, 2 miles, and St Mellion, 5.
