The property

A lovely, stone-built barn conversion adjacent to the owner's home, situated on the edge of the rural village of Dobwalls, 3 miles from Liskeard. The property is decorated and furnished to a good standard throughout and offers comfortable accommodation over one floor, including one double bedroom and a compact open plan living area with modern fitted kitchen and cosy sitting and dining areas. The property also offers a small outdoor seating area, perfect for sitting out and enjoying the wonderful views of the surrounding fields and valley beyond. This is a superb base for touring South and East Cornwall, with good countryside walks to be enjoyed along the surrounding lanes and on nearby Bodmin Moor. The charming fishing villages of Looe and Polperro are within easy reach and are well worth a visit, as is the wonderful south Cornish coastline.

    • “Everything Thought of and More!!!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The cottage was extremely comfortable and every detail was thought of, including salt & pepper, tea towels etc etc. The owners were extremely pleasant and we were made to feel welcome and at home. Our every need was thought of. The cottage was in a lovely tranquil spot and very quiet. The only down side was it was placed an extremely long way for any sort of evening entertainment. There was a local pub but if you walked there it was up very dark narrow lanes. We are used to going out in the evening but found it very hard to do this with one person having to drive and cabs into Looe and back each night would have been very expensive.”

About the location


Liskeard 3 miles; Looe 8 miles.

The rural village of Dobwalls is surrounded by open fields and wooded countryside, and is close to the market town of Liskeard, the slopes of Bodmin Moor and the glorious southern Cornish coastline. This is a perfect base for exploring the many delights the region has to offer, with the picturesque fishing harbours of Looe and Polperro within 8 miles. Take a trip to Siblyback Lake and enjoy the wonderful sailing, fishing and watersports on offer, or travel a little further and take advantage of the superb walking on Bodmin Moor. The Eden project is within 15 miles and Plymouth is just a 30 minute drive, or 15 minute train ride from nearby Liskeard station. With its old harbour district, renowned aquarium, and good selection of shops, restaurants and theatres, this is a great holiday base.
