Experience - The Area...

With outstanding views over a peaceful rural valley, this recently renovated, mid 19th century, detached and spacious stone barn is set in the quiet hamlet of Pendrift, just half a mile from the picturesque village of Blisland on the western edge of Bodmin Moor.

Offering a tranquil retreat for visitors wishing to get away from it all, yet only a 25 minute drive from the magnificent beaches of the Camel Estuary, Sleepy Fox provides warm and cosy accommodation all year round with double glazing and ground source under floor heating.

The village of Blisland, less than half a mile away, has a beautiful church, local store/P.O. and a traditional pub, all facing the village green, and the moorland village of St Breward, 3 miles, is home to the 11th century Old Inn which offers good food. There are fishing rights on a stretch of the De Lank River nearby, a tributary of the River Camel, and pony trekking is available at riding stables in St Breward.

For a wider selection of amenities, Bodmin is 5 miles and Wadebridge 8 miles, both with sports centres and cycle hire shops. The immediate area abounds in country walks and bridal ways, in particular to Jubilee Rock, a massive volcanic rock, possibly the oldest on the moor, and the North and South coasts are almost equidistant, Polzeath being the nearest about a half hour drive.

Stay - The Accommodation...

Situated at the end of a narrow country lane, the property is entered from the parking area where a couple of railed steps lead down to the low front doorway which opens directly into a delightful living room with a slate floor. There is a pleasant dining area, French doors opening to the garden, and comfortable leather lounge seating is arranged before a wood burning stove and a floor to ceiling window with views of lush rolling countryside.

Two steps lead up from the dining area to a well equipped fitted kitchen with a breakfast bar and high stools, and beyond to a wet room with shower, W.C and hand basin, and a utility room with laundry facilities and a stable door opening to the garden.
An oak staircase leads up from the living room to the first floor landing and two lovely bedrooms with a 5ft double and twin beds respectively; the former enjoying stunning countryside views from a large picture window. A bathroom W.C. with wash basin and bath with hand shower attachment completes the accommodation. The enclosed grassy garden has a raised terrace to take full advantage of the restful views, and visitors are encouraged to make use of the adjoining paddock particularly for exercising dogs.

There is parking for two cars and a trailer within the walled and gated shared courtyard and the owner can offer grazing for horses by prior arrangement.

Thank you for a lovely stay, very peaceful, tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Having the field next door to exercise the dog was ideal and the local dog friendly pub was great value for money. - Mr M Charnock

We will be back to enjoy the waves and location. " Mr S Duplock
