    “Stunning apartment very tastefully decorated.”

    Comfortable clean and vast in size. Excellent base for exploring both north and south Cornwall coastline. We had a very enjoyable stay in five sashes.

The property

Five Sashes is a very spacious first floor apartment located in Priory Park, Bodmin․ This striking Grade II listed building, formerly a large country house, has been fully restored to a high standard retaining many of its original features.

You enter the grounds via old iron gates and an off-road parking space awaits you before you enter the spacious entrance hall via the main front door․ Take the staircase to the first floor apartment where you will find a large open-plan living space and bedroom with high ceilings and 5 impressive sash windows spanning the entire frontage of the property.

Head to one of the many local stores to stock up as you begin your self-catering break․ With a fully equipped kitchen and all facilities you need for an enjoyable stay you can spend a relaxing evening indoors whilst you plan your days ahead.

Alternatively, Five Sashes is just a stone's throw from many popular pubs and restaurants if you fancy an evening out.

When the evening draws to a close, head to the spacious bedroom with a king size bed and lovely en-suite shower room․ There is plenty of room for you to unpack and make yourselves at home with wardrobe space and a chest of drawers․ This very large room also has a desk and chair should you need to continue working from home.

This central Cornwall spot is popular with walkers and cyclists, with Bodmin Moor nearby and the popular 17 mile Camel Trail running from the town through to the beach at Padstow․ There are many places to hire bicycles locally if you so wish and just a short 3 mile cycle ride along the Camel Trail is the Camel Valley Vineyard for the less enthusiastic riders.

The narrow streets of Bodmin are great for history lovers with two quirky museums, the old library and the 15th century jail offering exciting tours and overnight ghost walks․ There are distant views of the jail from the bedroom window, this truly impressive building is now a luxury hotel with a cocktail bar and restaurant.

This apartment also has lovely views over the park and towards St Petrocs Church with all amenities close by and is the perfect spot for exploring the area being within easy reach of the fabulous Cornwall beaches of both the north and south coasts․ With Padstow 15 miles to the north and Fowey 11 miles to the south you can decide on the day which direction to head in.

The north coast is a stunning spot for surfing, exploring rugged cliffs and hidden coves and is home to the fishing port of Padstow with its National Lobster Hatchery, interesting museums, pubs and restaurants serving local seafood․ The 15th century Prideaux Place with its lovely gardens and deer park is also close by.

Whilst in the other direction you can relax at the quieter bays of the south coast where you can also find the popular Eden Project which is home to a beautiful biodome rainforest․ The town of St Austell is bustling with shops, bars and eateries, including a Victorian brewery which has a museum, bar and tours with massive copper tanks and 150 years of history.

Also on the south coast, are the towns of Charlestown with its interesting harbour providing local produce, whilst the town of Fowey has an aquarium and offers little bus tours with recent stories of smuggling and battles.

Fowey and Charlestown are also known for their striking Tall Ships, whilst the nearby 19th century National Trust Lanhydrock House has gorgeous gardens with bike trails.

Lostwithiel is also rich with history with Tudor Bridge, the local museum and the nearby ruins of the romantic Restormel Castle.

Bodmin is a great location, well placed for exploring the sandy bays and lovely towns that Cornwall has to offer, choose Five Sashes as your stylish base and with midday check out you can even have a lie in on your last day!

About the location

BODMIN

Lostwithiel 6 miles; St. Austell 13 miles; Padstow 16 miles; Newquay 21 miles.

Bodmin, the one-time County Town of Cornwall with its narrow streets, shops and pubs, is perfectly placed for exploring all that this fabulous holiday area has to offer. The outstanding surf, rugged cliffs and hidden coves of the north coast beaches and the quieter sands and river estuaries of the south coast are both 15 miles away while on the edge of town is the fascinating museum and haunting presence of the old Bodmin Jail. The popular Camel Trail for cyclists and walkers also winds its way through the town on its journey to the sea at Padstow. Close by are the open spaces and wind swept grandeur of Bodmin Moor while the incomparable Eden Project (11 miles), Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum (30 miles) and the beautiful harbour town of Padstow with its famous pubs and restaurants (16 miles) make for great days out. Also within easy reach and ideal for a fun-filled day out, guests can visit Lanhydrock House, the small town of Fowey and Charlestown with its Tall Ships, The Eden Project and Lostwithiel. There is a good choice of country pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area.
