Wadebridge 1.5 miles. Located in the quiet rural hamlet of Burlwan, yet only 1.5 miles from Wadebridge, this most spacious and welcoming 300-year old detached cottage has been beautifully restored with flair and imagination, to produce the perfect holiday home for six people.
As you pull into the private gated entrance of Meadowside, the cottage is right opposite.
Enter into the porch, with ample room for coats and boots out of season, and then into the sitting room which is full of character, with a fine inglenook fireplace, woodburner, and exposed beams.
From here head through into the well-equipped kitchen with an electric AGA and polished granite worktops.
Then it’s up one step into the magnificent dining room, with low ceilings, the original slate floors and a cast iron decorative range.
In keeping with the age of the cottage, steep, narrow stairs from the kitchen will take you to the landing, and onto the three lovely bedrooms and bathroom.
Outside, the garage acts as a utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer.
A good sized garden with a pretty summerhouse and a selection of furniture provides the ideal opportunity to take in the stunning forest and countryside views, a wonderful peaceful place to relax at any time of day.
With Wadebridge being so close, if you don't bring your own bikes then hiring some and following the Camel trail to Padstow is a must, before stopping for lunch or a cream tea.
With the wonderful beaches at Polzeath or Daymer Bay so close, and the whole of the amazing north Cornwall coastline waiting to be explored, Meadowside is the ideal base for a special holiday at any time of year.
