Positioned within the rural hamlet of Cardinham this detached stone built cottage is perfectly situated for those looking for a relaxing break. The Smithy retains some of its original features with stone walls present in various rooms throughout the property together with a wood burning stove set within a large inglenook fireplace. The cottage is within easy reach of ancient walks and graded cycle trails through Cardinham Woods.

There is a sloping concrete driveway providing parking for two cars with an uneven stone pathway leading to the front door. The front door opens into a hallway with a tiled floor with a feature stone wall and door leading to the ground floor W.C with a tiled floor, basin and heated towel rail. There is a step up and a door into the kitchen/dining room which is a light room with a feature stone wall to one side, dining table and seating for 6, ample storage, a seating area beneath the window overlooking the front garden, and there is a door into the utility room which has a basin with storage underneath.

Completing the ground floor accommodation is a large sitting room with comfortable lounge seating arranged before an inglenook fireplace with a wood burner, oak flooring and lots of light provided by large windows overlooking the front garden.

A carpeted staircase from the lounge with six steps lead up to the back door and a further seven steps to the first floor accommodation where there is a landing arranged as a reading area with two armchairs and a shelving unit with books, and three carpeted well presented bedrooms. A master bedroom with king size zip link bed with fully tiled en-suite shower room W.C with basin, a twin bedroom and single bedroom with day bed ,TV and Playstation 3. Completing the first floor accommodation is a family bathroom W.C with separate shower and basin.

The front garden has a fence running along one side and a stone path leading to the front door, leads to the driveway and a path which runs along the side of the cottage into the rear garden. The rear garden benefits from established shrubs, has 9 steps up to the garden and decking area with furniture comfortably seating 6.

Two original features are prominent in the garden; Wheelwrights Stone which was previously used to bond red hot steel tyres to wooden cart wheels and the Water Chanel which is a remnant of a system of leats which brought water from Bodmin Moor to Cardinham.

The beautiful beaches and fishing villages of the North and South coasts are within 30 minutes drive and there are many glorious gardens and historic houses including Lanhydrock House (approximately 5 miles) and the Eden Projectwithin easy reach. Watersports and fishing are available at Siblyback Lake nearby.

A real bonus for this location is the easy road access to both A roads providing an ideal base for exploring the whole of Cornwall. The nearby village of St Neot, approximately 4 miles, offers a local shop and a pub. The nearest main town of Bodmin, approximately a 10 minute drive, offers shopping facilities, pub/restaurants and a leisure centre. There are wonderful walks around the area including Bodmin Moor, approximately 7 miles away, and the Cornish coastal path.

The nearest beaches Polzeath, Daymer Bay and Rockare all within a 30 minute drive. Daymer Bay & Rock allow dogs all year but there is a seasonal dog ban on Polzeath running between Easter Sunday and 30th September.

PLEASE NOTE
- This property welcomes a maximum of two dogs

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.
