The Property

An attractive mid-terrace cottage, dating back to the late 1700s, situated in the quiet village of Lanivet, the geographical centre of Cornwall, just five miles from the town of Bodmin. Within walking distance of the village shop, Post Office, fish and chip shop and pub, this well-presented Lanivet cottage provides an ideal base for a couple or small family who wish to explore Cornwall. Inside this cottage in Lanivet is a cosy sitting room with exposed beams and a fireplace housing a multi-fuel stove, a perfect place to relax in the evening after exploring the Saints Way, a 30 mile coast-to-coast trail linking Padstow and Fowey, which passes through the village and within yards of the cottage. The well-equipped kitchen at this Lanivet holiday home has a dining area; whilst the bedrooms are furnished in a cottage style ensuring a comfortable stay. The Lanivet villagers and the owner who lives next door will provide guests with a friendly welcome, plus nearby Bodmin Moor is a wonderful open space, which has inspired writers and storytellers for years. The National Trust owned Lanhydrock Estate is also a short drive away and offers an interesting day out, and Lanhydrock Golf Club welcomes visitors. There is much to see and do within driving distance with sub-tropical gardens, including the Eden Project, just 15 minutes' car journey away, fabulous beaches (to the north and south) and plenty of local farm shops. This delightful Lanivet cottage is an ideal central base for discovering Cornwall.
