Location description from owner

The England region

Although hidden in a secluded location, Garden Cottage is easily accessible, with everything on your doorstep. Bodmin's shops, pubs, eateries, tourist information centre and Town Museum, and the Town Park with childrens' playground and skate park are within 5 minutes walk. The Beacon nature reserve, perfect for picnics and kite flying, the Steam Railway, historic Bodmin Jail, Military Museum and the Camel Trail for cycling and walking are all within 15 minutes walk. So park that car and relax-there's plenty to do.

Only a 5 min car drive away is Lanhydrock Golf Club, and beautiful Lanhydrock House, a fantastic National Trust property-one of the best in England we think.

The quirky Trago Mills shopping experience is only a ten minute drive away. It's an amazing place selling everything from plumbing pipes to designer branded clothing, all at mad prices. Definitely worth a trip to fulfil all those shopping urges. There's no where else like it!

Bodmin

Are you a sporty type? Garden Cottage is ideally situated for cycling the Camel Trail to Wadebridge and Padstow, sailing in stunning Fowey, Fishing from Mevagissey, Pony trekking on Bodmin Moor, walking the Saints Way or Coastal paths, or golfing at one of the numerous local courses. If surfing is your bag then take your pick from all those fantastic North Coast beaches: none are more than 30 minutes drive away.

Art and Culture more your thing? You must visit Tate St Ives, explore all the studios in St Ives and Penzance, catch a show by Kneehigh or Miracle Theatre companies, see a local band at Carnglaze Caverns, or a national show on tour at Hall for Cornwall Truro Or Theatre Royal Plymouth, even a quality local show at Sterts Thaetre up on the moor.

Love Gardens and historic houses? There's loads-the Eden Project is a must, plus Lost Gardens of Heligan, Caerhayes Estate, Trelissick, Lanhydrock, and too many others to mention.

Children to entertain? On sunny days there's nothing better (or cheaper!) than playing on the beach, most of the best ones being less than 30 mins drive away. Dodgy weather? The Tourist info centre just opposite the house has a spooky dungeon to explore, plus an interactive courtroom trial re-enactment. Eden is great for kids, as is the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, The Sealife Centre in Plymouth, Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay, Paradise Park, Gweek Seal Sanctuary, the Monkey Sanctuary at Looe: the list goes on!

Mad on shops and lovely towns and cities? Nearby Fowey, Padstow, Wadebridge, and Newquay are all full of interesting shops and lovely restaurants. The bigger towns of Truro, Plymouth, Falmouth and St Ives are great for days out, and even Exeter is only an hour away.

Not bringing a car? Bodmin Parkway Station is a short taxi or bus ride away, or we can collect you with prior arrangement. The National Express Coach stops 5 mins walk away, and all the bus stops with links to most places in Cornwall are right out side the Cottage's private access to the street. The lovely ladies over the road in the Tourist Info Centre will tell you all you need to know.

“Kindness, fondness and a lovely dog”

Reviewed 11 Feb 2013

We've just got back from a two week stay which wasn't a holiday, but a family emergency. We needed a base that wouldn't require us to live in Premiere Inns for weeks on end and the lovely Sherry, Nigel & Penny (the dog - we fell in love) were only too happy to oblige. The garden flat offers peace, quiet and a central base for you to discover Cornwall, but for us it was much more about having a a bit of respite from some quite terrible days we were having. Well appointed and spotlessly clean, it was a relief to come back to every day. We were going through an awful time and a wonderful stay there. That has to tell you something. Thanks for your kindness guys, we won't forget it.

Oh you dear people. It was an absolute privilege to do what ever we could to support you through your ordeal. When guests become friends, this is all the thanks we need. Cheesy but true. Glad that even Penny was useful as a therapy dog. Mind you, you gave her so much fuss I think she got as much benefit back! Look forward to seeing you all soon one day..

“Excellent”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2013

Many thanks to Sherry and Nigel for making us feel so welcome. The cottage was lovely – spotless, well equipped, in fact everything we needed and very comfortable. To top it all, Penny the dog is lovely – we love animals and she is so quiet and so friendly! We would be more than happy to recommend you.

Thanks for your lovely feedback. Not everyone likes other peoples' pets, so we always make sure guests are comfortable around dogs before Penny is allowed to meet them, especially if they have children. We aim to give guests the best experience we can when they stay with us.
