In a peaceful rural hamlet 2½ miles from Bradworthy is this detached single storey cottage converted from a barn on a smallholding.
Amid rolling fields, it is a restful retreat from cares and stresses.
The entrance porch, a handy area for discarding boots, coats and damp dogs, leads through to the kitchen with its country style slate floor.
Behind a half wall is a step down to your sitting room, all beautifully designed with an oak floor, lofty ceiling, cosy wood burning stove and a dining area.
You can gaze across the lovely views from the two bedrooms sharing a smart bathroom with lovely porcelain floor and olde worlde roll top bath.
Around the side of the cottage you have your big enclosed garden with lawn and a sunny patio for firing up the barbecue and eating alfresco.
Beyond this is unspoiled farmland with trees and the few sheep, alpacas and hens which range around the smallholding.
Have you considered making something beautiful and unique from wood?
This is your opportunity, with woodworking and furniture making courses available on site.

With Cornwall within easy reach and unspoiled coast and countryside all around, The Old Piggery is a splendid base to relax and discover new gems.
