Experience - The Area...

A Grade 2 beautifully renovated and tastefully furnished barn set amidst the owner's three acre small holding located less than 5 miles from the edge of Bodmin Moor.  The property is situated in idyllic Cornish countryside and is within easy reach of some of the County's prettiest and most interesting places to visit.

Dolittles Den has been given its name due to the small holding being home to an array of animals including Alpacas, Pip and Michael the family ducks, two golden Labradors Dennis and Helga as well as roosters and chickens laying free range eggs. In addition, because the location is so peaceful and tranquil 'doing little' is precisely what you will be experiencing staying here! The owners even provide a convenient outdoor market stall exclusively for guests staying at Dolittles Den so that on arrival and throughout your stay you can purchase fresh, locally sourced produce.

If you decide to venture away from the comfort of Dolittles Den then the village of St Cleer with traditional Cornish pub and farmers' market shop is less than 4 miles away.  For a greater selection of amenities including leisure centre with family friendly indoor pool and mainline train station serving London Paddington, the town of Liskeard is just 2 miles. The fabulous Golitha Falls on the Southern edge of Bodmin Moor are within an easy 5 mile drive. Looe and the beaches close by is a 9 mile drive with crab fishing on Looe harbour a must!

Stay - The Accommodation...

A shared gated driveway leads up to the property with parking for two cars on a gravelled surface to the front. A slightly sloping Cornish stone pathway leads down to the front stable door.

The property is entered via the light and airy open plan living space with views from the dining area out across the fields. Comfy easy seating, attractive wooden floors, original beams and latched doors all add interest. A focal wood burner provides effective supplementary heating to the electric panel heating throughout the property. The modern, well equipped kitchen provides ample storage and work surface space with all the usual appliances provided.

Two shallow steps ascend to the rear hallway where the two bedrooms and family bathroom WC can be found. The family bathroom WC has a bath, overhead electric shower and wash hand basin. A comfortable double bedroom with views of the garden and a pretty twin bedroom to the rear with views of the neighbouring fields complete the accommodation layout.

Outside, there is a large enclosed lawn garden for fun and games and with garden furniture provided mum and dad can relax whilst the children play safely and securely.  Impressive barbecue also provided for alfresco dining.... Dolittles style!

Don't forget...

This property accepts two dogs of any size.

A great spot in a lovely garden with views of the neighbouring fields. Owners were very friendly and welcoming. Access to all the local attractions was very easy with main roads heading in all directions. A great place to stay. - Mrs S Williams
"A perfect place to stay with lovely hosts. Wonderful cottage and unbelievable, peaceful silence. We'd like to come back." Mrs A Treiber
"What a lovely place. So quiet and peaceful yet easy access to everywhere. The owners were helpful and friendly. Just what we needed. " Mr R Shortman
"The property is beautiful, the owners are lovely and very welcoming. Although the property seems secluded it is very close to everything." Mr and Mrs R Preece
"Dolittles Den in Cornwall was fab. Very helpful and friendly owners who we hope to see again in future holidays. The accommodation was excellent, catering for 4 adults and 2 dogs. Couldn't have been better. Alpacas in the field next door were a bonus, and has made us want to have some of our own if only we had the space. We will just have to get our fill when we go back, which I am sure we will." Mrs J Storer
"The owners were very friendly and helpful and really welcoming. The cottage was very well located and ideal as a base for exploring locally and further afield. " Mr & Mrs D Stooke
"We had a very relaxing week in this quiet country location. The cottage was spotless and so comfy. Lots of lovely locations nearby. Very dog friendly, even they didnt want to leave." Mr S Holloway
"We had the perfect week away from it all. The owners were wonderful hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was clean, comfortable and cosy. Our daughters loved helping out with the alpacas, chickens and ducks. The gorgeous dogs; Helga and Dennis were always happy to see us. Our own dog had a blast. We had many 'famous five' moments thanks to their recommendations. Much needed. Thank you." Mrs N Rogers
