Description from owner

¼ mile from the centre of Blisland is a beautiful place described by Country Life as 'near perfect'. A lovely listed 17th cent. manor house (the owners' home, used in the making of films) and, in its grounds, a long barn converted into three cottages called Tom, Dick and Harry. The cottages share lawns (tables/chairs, barbecue for each cottage) on three sides - one walled, one large with granite-pillared swing and trees. Beyond them, park-like field with massive plane tree slopes to stream (tiddlers) with island. In all, 30 acres (sheep, cattle) for exploring: woods with unusual trees, remains of a Victorian water garden, grotto and Celtic crosses (medieval pilgrims en route to Falmouth, ship and Santiago de Compostela stopped here). Masses of space. Barn available for parties and weddings - ask us for details. One-hundred yard drive leads from a lane to the cottages (which are completely hidden from it). Barn with washing machines and tumble driers (extra), freezer. Spring water. No pets

Harry, the largest and end cottage is 'upside down' and split-level with magnificent open-plan living/dining/kitchen upstairs - 42' x 17' with high ceiling to the apex, ancient exposed timbers, fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, freezer, fridge, gas cooker) at one end, the rest a living/dining area with huge fireplace (woodburner), piano, TV/DVD/video, door to large lawn, and big end window looking across fields and valley to woods beyond. Downstairs (stairgate), three bedrooms – a double (5' bed) with en suite bathroom (suite), a twin, and a room with 3' bunks, single bed and French windows; shower-room and separate loo; slated hall to door to walled garden. The great upstairs room won a commendation from the Cornish Buildings Group.

Each cottage has its own distinct character. All relaxed, charming.

The Cornwall region

Cornwall's north coast: from the river Camel north to Bude and on to Morwenstow and the highest cliffs in the West Country, it is a mixture of great cliffs and beaches. Walking (coast path) and bird-friendly cliffs (usually no road near): peregrines possible. Great sand/surf beaches at Polzeath, Trebarwith, Widemouth Bay, Bude and Sandy Mouth; sandy coves at Port Gaverne, Bossiney, Crackington Haven, Duckpool, and others less accessible; Rock, also sandy, is the place for watersports, including sailing on the Camel estuary; very fine golf course (St Enodoc); mini-fjords at Port Quin and Boscastle. Port Isaac is very pretty round its cliff-enclosed harbour.

The well-worth-riding Camel Trail cycleway (bicycles for hire) follows the river Camel from Bodmin Moor to Padstow. Pencarrow is a beautiful house with wonderful garden. Tintagel has a ruined castle (King Arthur's?) on a wild headland. St Juliot church was restored by Thomas Hardy and 'a pair of blue eyes' nearly fell down a Crackington cliff. Bodmin Moor, its highest hills quite mountainous, is only a little way inland and Blisland, on its northern edge, is one of Cornwall's prettiest villages - makes a change from sea: so does lovely Lanhydrock (see Cornwall's 'Med'). Not far to Eden (see South Cornwall).

Blisland

Blisland: attractive village (old cottages, good pub, PO/shop/internet café, medieval church) around a green in wooded farmland below the western edge of Bodmin Moor. Nearby, the River Camel (trout/salmon fishing and Camel Trail cycleway). The sea at Port Isaac, 9 miles, or Polzeath (sand/surf beach) and Rock (watersports), 12. Bodmin (town), 5.
