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.

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. 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.

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. 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.

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.

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.
