    My family and I had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Medlar Tree Cottage. The accommodation is delightfully quirky and comfortable with plenty of space to relax. The bedrooms are a good size and we found the beds very comfortable. The location is so quiet that you are a guaranteed a peaceful nights sleep. The house was clean and extremely well equipped, we found everything we needed. The wifi in the property is excellent (better than at home!) so no problem if you want to watch Netflix on one of your devices. The leisure facilities are outstanding - we all enjoyed the pool (heated to a nice level), the hot tub (always at a lovely 40 degrees) and the sauna every single day of the stay. The Smarts were very welcoming and friendly but not overly intrusive and it made no difference to us at all that their home is next door. The location is a perfect base to explore Cornwall. We enjoyed several days out but the notable highlights were Jamaica Inn (a mere 6 miles down the A30) where we feasted on a delicious pub lunch in the dog friendly bar area and our lovely outing to Padstow (via the ferry from Rock) - Rick Stein fish and chips were out of this world! We hired a transit van sized people carrier for our holiday and whilst you need to take it steady around the country lanes, it wasn't a particular challenge and the property has ample parking. All in all we had a wonderful stay and would happily recommend this property.

The property

Blisland 5 miles.

Set in an idyllic quiet location in a peaceful rural valley in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is this traditional stone detached barn conversion, situated on the edge of Bodmin Moor, five miles from the beautiful moorland village of Blisland.

There is no doubt the highlight of a stay at Medlar Tree Cottage is the private use of the superb leisure facilities.

With a wonderful 39' x 16' swimming pool, a top of the range Catalina hot tub integrated with every conceivable extra including lighting for evening sessions, as well as an infrared sauna in the sun room, holidays spent here are guaranteed to relax and invigorate.

With a selection of chairs and loungers around the swimming pool and so many areas in the stunning garden to find a quiet spot to take yourself off, this wonderful cottage has it all.

Accessed via a long driveway off a quiet country lane, this superb cottage is set at the side of the owners’ stone farmhouse with parking directly outside.

You enter the cottage into the delightful, warm and cosy dining room with the woodburner adding to the character.

To the right an archway leads into the well-equipped kitchen, whilst on the other side a further archway takes you into the sitting room with a vaulted ceiling and panoramic windows looking out over the beautiful gardens.

From the sitting room you go through into the sun room with seating, where many summer evenings will be spent, as well as housing the infrared sauna and giving direct access through the French doors out to the patio, swimming pool and hot tub.

There is also a separate shower if you need warming up when coming out of the pool.

From the patio a gate takes you past wonderful ponds to the shared BBQ area, perfect for alfresco dining.

The bedrooms are all on the first floor with the two doubles benefiting from en-suite facilities, plus there are three single beds in the third bedroom.

With so many superb facilities at the cottage you will be tempted to spend many hours here but right from the door, excellent walks can be enjoyed, and there is an adjoining field where the children can play to their hearts content.

The nearby moorland villages of Cardinham and Blisland are both close by and being so centrally situated in Cornwall makes Medlar Tree Cottage a superb location for holidays with families or friends, at any time of year.

About the location

BLISLAND

Bodmin 5.7 miles; Wadebridge 8.4 miles; Polzeath 13.2 miles; Tintagel 13.8 miles; Padstow 16 miles; Fowey 17.2 miles.

Situated under the western edge of granite-bound Bodmin Moor, the village of Blisland retains its age old character and is the only village in Cornwall to have a village green with trees. Around the green, cluster old houses and cottages, as well as the famous, award-winning Blisland Inn. The village is located less than three miles from the A30, and so provides an ideal central location for touring Cornwall. Nearby, Poley’s Bridge marks the beginning of the Camel Trail, a 17-mile long route, which follows a long disused old steam engine railway line to Padstow. The route is completely traffic-free and perfect for walkers and cyclists. You can even explore the trail on horseback and a purpose-built hide has been constructed between Wadebridge and Padstow, so even birdwatchers are catered for! Pull on your walking boots and explore Bodmin Moor, or venture to the coast with your buckets and spades and enjoy a day on one of the many beautiful beaches that stretch along Cornwall’s northern coastline. A fabulous part of the country for all!
