Experience - The Area...

Set in the peaceful rural hamlet of Pendrift, just half a mile from the picturesque village of Blisland and a short walk onto Bodmin Moor, 'A Bit On The Side' is a newly constructed spacious single storey stone cottage attached to the owner's property.  Offering a rural retreat for those wishing to explore Bodmin Moor, yet only a 25-minute drive from some of Cornwalls most dramatic coastal walks and beaches of the Camel Estuary, the spacious property offers a warm and relaxing environment year round with double glazing, central heating and a wood burning stove.

The village of Blisland is less than half a mile away and can be reached by car or on foot down the country lane and has a beautiful church, village shop/Post Office and a traditional pub all centred around the village green.  Directly from the cottage you have access to a wide selection of footpaths and bridleways with access onto Bodmin Moor.

The historic town of Bodmin is a fifteen-minute drive and has a wide range of amenities including two supermarkets, a sports centre, golf course, cycle hire and a mainline railway station. The coastal towns of Wadebridge and Padstow are10 and 17 miles respectively and have a range of independent shops, cafes and restaurants including Rick Steins in Padstow. The Camel Trail connects to Padstow and Wadebridge from Bodmin.  Woodland and cycle trails can be found at Lanhydrock and Cardinham a twenty minute drive away, with the historic houses of Lanhydrock, Prideaux Place and Pencarrow all within 10 miles.

Stay - The Accommodation...

Located at the end of a narrow country lane, the cottage is entered from the gravelled parking area with a step up through the front door into the small entrance hall. The main living accommodation is on one level with timber flooring.  A comfortable double bedroom with a 5ft king size bed to one side of the entrance hall with a large bathroom WC with overhead shower, wash hand basin and heated towel rail next door and a light and spacious living space on the other side with a well-equipped fitted kitchen, comfortable leather lounge seating arranged before the woodburning stove completes the living space.

French doors and a step down open into the conservatory with slate floor, dining table and chairs and further comfortable conservatory furniture.  A door leads out onto the sunny patio garden.

There is ample private parking outside the front of the cottage with a small patio running the length of the cottage round into the sunny patio garden with a central patio surrounded by gravel with a raised bed, low Cornish wall and timber fence and gate separating the owners drive and stables. The owner can offer stabling for anybody wishing to bring their pony / horse with them on holiday. Please note there is occassional shared access of the driveway only with the neighbour.
