Farmhouse | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
This 450 year old 17th century thatched property is located in the heart of Cornwall and is an ideal base for chilling out and/or exploring this wonderful county - the property is perfectly positioned only 4 miles from the A30 (the main Artery of Cornwall) but still extremely peaceful and quiet. This quirky deceptively spacious property is full of character with internal features like underfloor heating & outside, a large insulated summer house that's ideal for escaping the rigors of life. Surrounded by countryside, gardens and your only a 5 minute walk from an impressive large Duchy woodland. The property sits in a very private part of Cornwall and is ideal for families. 4 bedrooms - 3 doubles and a twin. 2 bathrooms. Lovely, charming farmhouse, surrounded by peace and quiet that provides you with a real sense of being away from everything, giving you plenty of time to contemplate and switch off.
If you need to sleep more than 8 there is another property 20 meters up the road that is owned by the same owners. This property is also advertised through Holiday lettings and is called Pennti.

The West Country region
The region Located in the far west of Great Britain on a peninsula tumbling into the vast Atlantic ocean, almost completely surrounded by the sea, a magnificent coastline wraps around Cornwall for almost 300 miles. Cornwall is also the location of mainland Great Britain's most southerly promontory, The Lizard, and one of the UK's most westerly points, Land's End, while a few miles off shore and even further west is an archipelago of tiny islands that make up the Isles of Scilly.
There are lots of things Cornwall is loved for; the dramatic coastline with its captivating fishing harbours; the spectacular beaches and the pounding surf that provide a natural playground for a variety of water sports; and who can forget famous Cornish pasties and luscious cream teas?
But there are also lots of things about Cornwall that may surprise you. For instance, the wilderness of captivating Bodmin Moor with its panorama of big skies, fascinating prehistoric remains, great walking trails and more than its fair share of local legends.
There's also the dynamic art scene found in mainly in West Cornwall, inspired by the naturally stunning landscape; and more recently a food scene to rival London and beyond; Cornwall now has a multitude of award-winning local food producers and stellar chefs putting the region well and truly on the gourmet map.
Cornwall also has a tremendous history based on its Celtic roots, its Celtic Cornish culture, the warmth and friendliness of the people and the Cornish language that can be seen in the village names.
And that's not all...
Take a trip around Cornwall and you'll discover a hugely diverse landscape. In the far west where the sea turns turquoise in the sun, the sand is white and the natural light is sometimes blindingly bright, the land is adorned with a legacy of Bronze age standing stones, huge granite burial chambers, Celtic crosses and holy wells.
In the old industrial heartland, the landscape, recently awarded World Heritage Site status, is dotted with the fascinating remnants of a triumphant mining past illustrating Cornwall's enormous contribution to the Industrial Revolution with engine houses, museums and miles of recreational trails.
Around the coastline Cornwall's maritime legacy is never far away where local fishermen land their daily catch of fresh seafood and tall ships, luggers and ketches unfurl their sails in the Cornish breeze.
The natural environment, recognised nationally across the twelve sections of the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is accessed by the spectacular South West Coast Path providing walkers with miles of gentle strolls and challenging hikes.
To the north, a sweep of enormous golden sand bays stretches along the coastline often pummelled by giant Atlantic rollers. Long famed for its perfect surfing conditions, the coastline here is a hub for all kinds of extreme sports from coasteering to zapcat racing and scuba diving to rock climbing.
And in the wonderful south of Cornwall, fed by rivers from the high moorlands, leafy estuaries, fishing villages, beaches, harbours and beautiful gardens that flourish in Cornwall's mild climate
The Lanherne is set in a very quiet corner of Cornwall. Because the property is almost in the centre of Cornwall it is really easy to access all Cornwall has to offer. Although the Lanherne is set in a very quiet part of Cornwall you are close enough to the main trunk road A30 to make traveling about as easy as it gets. You are only 20 minutes from either coast, choose from either the soft green and very pretty south coast or the slightly more rugged North coast famous for some of the best surf in the country. When you stay at the Lanherne you will find you are only a 10 minute walk from a very large Duchy woodland called Laddock Woods. If you want to stay up and star gaze you really cant do much better than this area as there is hardly any light pollution as you can see from some of the photos.
