This characterful barn conversion, originally home to the cider press, in the east wing of the owner's home on a working farm on the beautiful Boconnoc Estate near Lostwithiel is a short drive of Fowey resort.
Perfect for family, friends and couples, the open-plan living area with kitchen, dining and sitting room area with a wood burning stove has a curved wall and ceiling beams, and the master galleried bedroom is accessed by steep stairs.
The low beams in the twin bedroom, on the ground floor make it ideal for children - they will adore the quirkiness, plus there is a bathroom with shower cubicle also on the ground floor.
The dinky enclosed garden at the rear is ideal for alfresco dining, surrounded by meadows and countryside, with resident lambs, cattle, horses, sheep, chickens and ducks to help feed!
There is even stabling and grazing for guests to bring their own horses!
The small village of Lerryn is three miles away with a family friendly pub and store.
Within a short drive are the delights of Fowey with harbour, restaurants, traditional inns and art galleries.
Hop aboard the passenger ferry across to Polruan.
The iconic fishing village of Polperro is a must visit destination with eateries and pubs huddled around the quayside and the fishing port of Looe with stretch of sandy beach can be reached by an amble around the scenic coastal footpath.
Lostwithiel, the ancient capital of Cornwall is six miles westwards and the market town of Liskeard is eight miles to the east.
With excellent golf courses, stately homes, castles, steam railways, sub-tropical gardens and rugged moorland - there is an attraction for all ages.
For that mix of coast and country, The Apple Loft ticks all the boxes.
About the location
Bodmin 5.5 miles; Fowey 7 miles.
A delightfully peaceful country town, nestling in the Fowey river valley amid the woods and fields that characterise the area. Renowned as a centre for the antiques trade, there are several shops and dealers in the town, as well as a fine collection of country pubs, restaurants and a thriving farmer’s market. Lanhydrock House (NT) and gardens is just 3 miles away, while the fabulous Boconnoc House, Eden Project, shipwreck museum and tall ships harbour at Charlestown, and the picturesque fishing villages of Mevagissey, Fowey and Padstow, with the famous Rick Stein restaurants, are all within easy driving distance. The tumbling Atlantic surf, long sandy beaches and dramatic coastline of the north coast, including at the renowned Newquay, make for great days out and there is also chance to enjoy river canoeing, biking, hiking and leisurely walks in this lovely area. The friendly locals also have ongoing activities, such as the raft race, the famous tug of war, Carnival week and seagull outboard motor races. The river Fowey runs from the town on its 8 mile journey through the fields and wooded valleys to the gentler southern coast, a natural paradise for those who love the sea. Centrally placed, with much to do and see in the immediate area, Lostwithiel is the perfect choice for those seeking a break away from the hectic pace of the tourist resorts.
