    The owners are wonderfully helpful and accommodating, and couldn't have made our stay any better. A wonderful break, in a wonderful place. Highly recommended!

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 four 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


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!
