The property

Altarnun 1 mile. A cosy, beautifully refurbished 300-year old character cottage in the hamlet of Trewint, only a mile away from Altarnun, one of the most beautiful villages in Cornwall.

Arriving at this beautiful cottage along virtually traffic-free roads you will appreciate the tranquillity that surrounds you.

Entering into the hallway you will have to make allowances for the low ceilings in places, traditional for this age of property.

Passing the bathroom and kitchen diner, you are taken to the wonderful sitting room.

With a massive fireplace and open fire, this room is full of the character that is so apparent throughout the cottage, and is a lovely room to relax in at the end of a day on the moors.

On the first floor, two well-furnished bedrooms complete the accommodation.

Opposite the cottage is a beautiful enclosed garden, perfect for relaxing at any time of day.

Just a few doors away is Wesley Cottage, where John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, preached and rested.

Set in an 18th century cottage, the chapel, thought to be the smallest Methodist preaching place in the world, provides a unique visitor experience.

Also well worth visiting and only a mile away is the beautiful village of Altarnun, with its 6th century church and holy well.

Nestling in the valley of Penpont River, this is one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall.

The Rising Sun Inn just outside the village is a 16th century award-winning traditional pub, selling locally produced ales and fresh and innovative meals in a great atmosphere.

Travel to Jamaica Inn, high up on Bodmin Moor and discover the legend and mystery of this historic coaching house.

This is the ideal location for touring all of Cornwall, being so central and close to the A30.

A wonderful, superbly-located cottage for a relaxing break at any time of year.

About the location

ALTARNUN

Launceston 8 miles; Boscastle 14 miles; Port Isaac 18 miles.

A very pretty village on the edge of Bodmin Moor, located close to the A30, making it the perfect base from which to tour the many visitor attractions within easy reach. Altarnun itself boasts quaint stone cottages, a stream running through the village, a lovely old church, and a traditional country pub. After a long day exploring the stunning countryside around Bodmin Moor this is an ideal place in which to unwind. Explore four unique villages, Boscastle, Tintagel, Port Isaac and Crackington Haven, each situated along the dramatic unspoiled coastline of North Cornwall. Port Isaac, a filming location in Doc Martin, is a busy port where you can still watch the fishermen hard at work. Walking and cycling are popular activities in this area and there are beautiful churches and historic buildings to discover. Venture a little further afield and walk the high tors of Bodmin Moor, surf the waves of the North Cornish coast, sample the delights of the Eden Project or take a cruise from Truro down the misty reaches of the River Fal to Falmouth. There's something for everyone nearby, from moors and river valleys to beaches and harbours, stately homes and museums to potteries and galleries.
