  • "Had a fantastic week at Bandylegs."

    Its a proper country cottage in a stunning location. If you like country and cosy cottages, this is definable for you. The village is friendly and the cottage cosy and inviting after a day out or a walk on the moors. We would recommend this, and would not hesitate to come back again.

  • "Beautifully decorated and maintained cottage."

    Great enclosed garden for dogs. Good parking and very quiet. The orange sofa looked amazing but it was not very comfortable.

  • "The cottage is small but perfectly formed."

    Although open plan, the space was well thought out which allowed the feeling of separation between the kitchnen/dining area and lounge. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything you could ask for to make self catering easy. Lots of lovely little extra touches to make you feel welome. We would love to return.

  • "What a lovely cottage with everything needed for a perfect break."

    Some very clever work has been carried out on the house creating a spacious feel without being large. What pleased us, but not the dog, is the impossibility of escape from the garden - we have an escapologist for a pet. Easy walk up to the moor for lovely local walks and the cottage is well placed for visits to other areas of Cornwall with easy access to the A30 and A38. Lovely neighbours as well - could not have asked for more.

  • "This gorgeous cottage was fabulous."

    We have rented lots of properties around the UK and this was definitely one of the best we have found. Brilliantly laid out to maximise the space and kitted out so we had absolutely everything you could expect from a holiday home. We will be back!

  • "Loved it so peaceful."

    A bit out of the way but perfect for a get away from it alll holiday. The moor is so near for long walks, and the scenery lovely. The narrow hedges along the roads a bit of a nightmare but just join the slow relaxed way of life.

The property

Nestled in the picturesque hamlet of Mount near Bodmin Moor, is this characterful 18th century cottage, Bandylegs Cottage.

Perfect for families and couples seeking somewhere they can explore Cornwall, wonderful walks on your doorstep, it is also a superb base to relax and unwind.

All close, Cornwalls top visitor attractions and the cottage is mid-way between the North and South coasts and with beautiful moorlands on the doorstep.

With oodles of charisma and charm, the cottage boasts original beams, stonework and flagstone floors with a contemporary open-plan living space, creating a stylish and cosy ambience. Upon arrival, you will be delighted to find a private, off-road parking space, before taking in your lovely home-from-home's idyllic surroundings.

Make your way inside to a spacious open-plan living space, where a fabulous sitting area with plush seating awaits.

The bright kitchen area is well-equipped with appliances and sleek fittings, and has views out to the rest of the space, where the chef of the group can watch on as the kids play on the Xbox or enjoy a family-favourite DVD.

When dinner is served, you can enjoy a meal at the stylish dining table; or if you're having a quick meal-to-go, you can savour it at the convenient breakfast bar!

When night falls, ascend the stairs to a beautifully decorated, bright and airy double bedroom with king size bed, finished with sophisticated deep blues and boasting original features and dual-aspect windows, or the second comfortable double bedroom featuring cheerful yellows and Cornish seascape artwork.

The bathroom is also located on this floor and is served by a spacious bath with shower over, along with nautical finishes.

Outside, rustle up some grilled delights on the barbecue as the kids stretch their legs in the enclosed rear garden.

For a great meal and pint in a traditional pub, travel a short distance to the London Inn in St Neot, before continuing to Bodmin for the rest of your amenities and more.

Bandylegs Cottage is ideal for walkers with scenic rambles from the front doorstep across rugged moorland to scenic Bodmin Beacon and the beautiful Colliford Lake where you can take a dip on a hot summer day, followed by lunch and museum visit at the famous Jamaica Inn.

Close to home, explore the cycling trails at Cardinham Woods or head to the stunning Lanhydrock House & Gardens for an afternoon cream tea. The Eden Project, with its spectacular Rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes, and attractions for all age groups, is a nearby must-visit; and for wine-lovers, don’t miss the chance for a tour of the award-winning Camel Valley Vineyard.

Continue on from there to Padstow, where you can while away an afternoon in the art shops and boutiques followed by dinner in one of the many excellent restaurants.

Those seeking coastal escapades will enjoy the wide tracts of sandy beach at Polzeath, Tintagel, Watergate Bay and Bude on Cornwall’s north coast and the charismatic fishing harbours at Polperro, Looe and Fowey on Cornwall’s south coast.

For your next unforgettable holiday in a charming Cornish cottage, choose Bandylegs Cottage.
