  • "Pampas is a lovely cottage located just outside the village."

    It has been tastefully decorated with a modern feel whilst still keeping the cottage vibe. It is well appointed; the sofa and beds are comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need. There is even a selection of books and games available to keep you occupied in the evening. The front garden is south-facing so you get sun through the day - you also get sun on the upper level of the rear garden - an ideal spot for enjoying a coffee. Lanivet is just off the A30 and is central to Cornwall so it is a perfect base for exploring the county. The village has a decent pub, a fish and chip shop, a play park for kids and a Spar for buying essentials. Bodmin is only minutes away if you need more. Pampas is adjacent to the main road. It is noisy and despite being a 40mph limit, the cars come past faster than that. There is parking outside in the layby but getting a small child in and out of the car whilst standing in the road was not ideal. This was the only negative bit, but once you're in the house, you can leave that behind.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Pampas."

    It is a lovely, tastefully furnished, and a very clean cottage. We also found its location convenient for all local Cornwall attractions. The only thing which we were missing was the washing machine, crucial when you travel with children.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are really happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Pampas and enjoyed exploring Cornwall. We don't offer a washing machine at property, as we find more guests would prefer a dishwasher instead. If you do require the use of a washing machine during your stay, there is a launderette not too far in Bodmin. Property Owner

  • "A washing machine would be better than dishwasher."

    There was not enough cutlery and crockery to facilitate the use of dishwasher, would run out of plates etc before anywhere near a full load. We found TV set up challenging. Would have appreciated heads-up on the parking. Road was deemed too busy to reverse park.

  • "The cottage is beautiful."

    We had a lovely holiday there. Only thing, which wasn’t great was the parking bay for your car. It was off the very busy main road and it was dangerous getting in and out off your car.

The property

Tucked away in the sleepy village of Lanivet, is this striking, double-fronted, stone cottage.

Boasting magnificent views of the encompassing countryside, Pampas presents guests with a fabulous base from which to tour the very best of Cornwall.

Make yourself feel right at home in the pretty country-style kitchen/diner, perfect for rustling up some tasty treats with the help of the handy appliances and utensils that lie within.

Tuck in to a hearty snack at the charming oak breakfast table, or continue through to the homely living/dining room and delight in more formal meals at the round and sociable table.

Spend your evenings snuggled in front of the woodburning stove that sits proudly within the eye-catching stone fireplace, whilst enjoying heartfelt conversations with your loved ones and mapping out all of your upcoming adventures.

Climb the staircase up to the first floor and be greeted by three good bedrooms consisting of two doubles and a twin, each beautifully decorated with neutral hues and traditional furnishings, and finished with quirky nautical accessories.

Across the way, a gorgeous bathroom with tranquil blues and contemporary tiles creates a peaceful space to unwind, as you indulge in a deep and relaxing soak in the bath tub or freshen up with a rinse under the well-designed over-head shower.

Spend your mornings out in the front garden as you sip on a warm cup of coffee at the bistro table and admire views of the open fields, or venture out back to the rear mutli-level garden for breakfast alfresco before setting about your day.

Take a relaxing stroll to the centre of Lanivet and discover a quintessential post office and a well-stocked convenience store, as well as the award winning pub the Lanivet Inn where you can delight in an evening of wining and dining before heading back to the warm embrace of your holiday home.

The bustling town of Bodmin rests just a few miles away and is home to the 18th century museum of Bodmin Jail and the historical Bodmin Keep, two excellent attractions offering fun for the whole family.

Wander the well-kept grounds of the beautiful Pencarrow House and Garden or tour the grand halls of the National Trust owned Lanhydrock, a fabulous 19th century stately home boasting ornate interiors.

Explore the former slate mines of Carnglaze Caverns and be blown away by incredible cascading waterfalls on a hike through the wonderful woodland of Golitha Falls Nature Reserve.

Spend the afternoon at the popular Eden Project and The Lost Gardens Heligan, or hop in the car and head for Par where you can bask in the sunshine on Spit Beach Par before setting about on an awe-inspiring hike along the vast South West Coast Path.

Stop off in the wonderful port village of Charlestown and Mevagissey, filled with lovely cafés to dine in and many exciting attractions such as the Mevagissey Model Railway and Outer Harbour Wall.

With so much adventure right on your doorstep, it's little wonder that Pampas makes a fantastic choice for your next family holiday to Cornwall.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
