With tranquil views over a peaceful rural valley, this traditional stone and slate detached barn is perfectly situated for those who wish to get away from it all, in a lovely unspoilt area surrounded by beautiful countryside on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Nestling in the small hamlet of Warleggan, the property is set to one side of the owners 17th century farmhouse in an area of outstanding natural beauty with an abundance of birds and wildlife and offers an ideal rural retreat.

Approached from the gated gravel driveway, a path leads to the front door which opens to a delightful, warm and cosy sitting room full of old world charm and with a vaulted ceiling at one end. Sympathetically furnished, the barn has great character with exposed beams and stonework, some slate floors and comfortable lounge seating set before a wood burning stove. An inner hallway and one step leads up to a wet room with shower, W.C and hand basin, and at the end of the hall is a fully fitted galley kitchen with a Belfast sink.

To one side, a doorway opens to a lovely double glazed conservatory which has a rustic dining table and bench seat and a door leading out to a covered sun deck with patio furniture. The secluded rear garden has a gravel terrace and five steps leading down to a hedged and gated lawned garden with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. A hand carved spiral staircase leads up to the long galleried bedroom with a double antique pine bed set under the eaves and an additional sitting/reading area. A garage houses the freezer and shared laundry facilities and there is also space available for the storage of bikes and beach gear.

The quiet village of St Neot is 3 miles away where there is a shop and church. The Colliford Tavern on the shores of Colliford Lake is a 10 minute drive. Polventon Barn is conveniently located for the beautiful beaches and cliff paths on both the North and South coast which can be reached in just over half an hour by car as well as the Eden Project. Locally there are excellent walks, fishing, golf and pony trekking available, and cycle trails through Cardinham Woods close by. The old county town of Bodmin with a selection of shops, pubs and a leisure centre is about a 20 minute drive as is Lanhydrock House and Gardens. Water sports are available at Siblyback Lake nearby.

PLEASE NOTE
- No cot (carrycot may be accepted on request)
- Two thermostatically controlled electric radiators - inclusive
- This property welcomes a maximum of two dogs
- No dogs upstairs please

Sleeps
Close
When a property shows 'sleeps' in the format X-Y, X equals the maximum number of adults that can comfortably be accommodated and Y indicates the maximum number of adults + children that can be comfortably accommodated in the property.
Customer Rating
Close
Our rating method, the popular "smiles" system is generated entirely by the feedback we receive from our visitors. The number of smiles is arrived at by taking the average grading given to the question:

How would you rate the cottage's fittings, furnishings and equipment?’

A property will achieve a rating of 5 Smiles down to 1 Smile, although it is our policy not to carry any properties with ratings lower than 3 Smiles. The customer chooses from the following ratings:
  1. Excellent
  2. Good
  3. Satisfactory
  4. Below standard
  5. Poor
There are a number of properties that have been recently added to our portfolio and these are graded "New".
Pets
Close
There is an extra charge for pets, most commonly at £24 pppw (per pet per week).

Assistance dogs are of course welcome in all our cottages free of charge, however owners of them should be aware that a considerable number of people are allergic to dogs and in some cases can have a severe reaction. Owners are therefore encouraged, where at all possible, to choose a property which normally allows pets.

Some properties accept pets other than dogs, but in all cases we are required to confirm consent from the cottage owner. Please contact the office on 01208 895 354 if you would like to take a pet other than a dog with you to one of our cottages.

The Loyalty Discount cannot be claimed with any other discount.

Pricing information

All prices are per week per property. Many properties promote an all inclusive price although some charge for extras such as bed linen, towels, heating and/or electricity. The Property description will detail any extra charges.

Definitions

Booked: A customer has committed to a holiday period by paying a deposit or the full amount for a rental period.

Reserved: When a property is not yet available to be booked, a customer can 'Reserve' the property in their name on a first come first served basis. When Cornish Traditional Cottages and the owner have agreed availability and pricing for your selected period we will contact you to let you know if you can then book the property in your name. A Reservation does not guarantee a booking because the owner has first right of refusal on all availability.
Short breaks
Close
There are few better places to take a short break than in Cornwall. They can frequently be arranged, mainly out of season though, for periods to suit guest's particular requirements, but there is always a minimum rental, for practical reasons.

Cornwall in the early Spring is usually blessed with fine warm weather. It is this climate which brings out the wild flowers and spectacular gardens which make this time of year such an ideal one for a holiday. During July and August and other busy times of the year short break holidays are normally only available at short notice, but please enquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If short breaks are available, the cost of a short break is calculated as follows:
3 nights: 70% of weekly rental price
4 nights: 80% of weekly rental price
5 nights: 90% of weekly rental price
6 nights: 100% of weekly rental price

Reservations
Close
Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) can only be 'Reserved' (ie they cannot be booked) at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name on a first come first served basis until availability and pricing has been agreed.

It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be booked if the owner wishes to make the 'Reserved' period available for booking. Upon completion of your reservation you will receive confirmation by email or post containing details of the reservation.
