The property

Perfectly located for touring all of Cornwall and situated right on Bodmin Moor, this really cosy yet spacious old cottage is set in the village of St Breward, well known from the Poldark TV series, 7 miles north of Bodmin. The whole family will delight in the homely feel that exudes throughout from the moment you enter.

Full of character, with its beamed ceilings and large stone fireplaces, Dromore is a relaxing cottage beautifully furnished throughout.

There are three bedrooms on the first floor, all of which offer a comfortable retreat at the end of a busy day.

The children will love the games room with a choice of pool, table tennis, air hockey and darts to occupy them while the adults relax on the massive sofa in the living room.

There is even a handy outdoor shower in the summer season, perfect for cleaning off after a day spent surfing, biking or exploring and a shed which can be used to store bikes, surf boards and wet suits.

Very close by there is a children’s playground, one of two in the village.

Also in St Breward are Cornwall's highest church and the highest inn in the county, the welcoming Old Inn and restaurant which dates back to the 11th century and is famous for its delicious home-cooked food.

Even in the colder months a warm and friendly welcome is assured here with huge roaring log fires which will be a pleasing sight after a great walk on the moors or a climb up the two highest tors in the county, both within the parish.

With the starting point of the Camel Trail close by cyclists are well catered for; why not take the beautiful and scenic ride to Padstow for lunch before returning at your leisure where this wonderfully quiet cottage will guarantee a good night's sleep?

Horse riding offering great rides along the stunning moors is available close by and is a good way to see the moorland.

Dromore is a very special cottage in a traditional moorland village to be enjoyed all year round.
