  • "We had an amazing holiday, the cottage was very clean, the location was near all the facilities and on the other hand in a calm area."

    Our dog loved it. John was very helpful and made us feel very welcomed. Definitely coming back.

  • "The coach house was a great base to explore Cornwall from."

    The cottage was well furnished and had everything we needed. The welcome cream tea was a nice touch and the host, John, very friendly. My only constructive comment would be that the description was that shops and pub within a mile, which we read as we could walk out for an evening drink. This is not possible as a family due to being surrounded by busy roads and no pavements and therefore dangerous.

  • "Our host John is extremely helpful and very kind, when we arrived at our property this year he had laid on a champagne cream tea which was very welcome after a long journey!"

    He also gave me a plant which is now in my garden to remind me of the Coach House and Cornwall. We look forward to going again.

  • "John was a great host even before we got there he called us to check we knew the location of the coachhouse as it is tucked away and the postcode could confuse some people."

    I had already looked on google earth and found its location but never the less he took time to call just in case. We were greeted by John on arrival the coach house was spotless and everything you would need for short stay great central location for exploring Cornwall. Nothing was too much trouble will will be sure to book here again when we venture down to Cornwall again. Thanks for a very pleasant stay John. Simon and Tracy Hodgkiss

  • "Very nice welcome from the host, John."

    Great facilities in cottage, particularly if you like to cook, home from home. Light and airy, lovely and warm. Beautiful bathroom. Very small comment that the parking space is a little tight for turning round if you have a long car. We had mastered it by the end of the week but wouldn’t let this stop us from coming again.

  • "A wonderful little property, perfectly placed to explore Cornwall."

    Once you drive down the short farm track to the cottage you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere yet you have all the amenities you could want within a 5 minute drive. It is very well appointed and John is a fantastic host... extremely welcoming and helpful yet unobtrusive, and the cream tea he provides on arrival is a lovely touch. It provides the perfect getaway whether you want a peaceful relaxing break or to spend your time exploring. It is also extremely dog friendly, with some great walks pretty much on the doorstep, so our little dog enjoyed his stay as well! I can't recommend The Coach House highly enough.

    we were welcomed by John with a lovely cream tea, The Coach House was not only clean but had everything in it that you would need. The little touches made a massive difference, there were plenty of games, films and tv channels for if we were staying in on an evening and there was even a torch at the side of the bed if needed. Thank you John for a wonderful stay.

    Wanted for nothing! Jon the owner was very helpful and friendly and we were welcomed in with an amazing cream tea! It was a family holiday and the cottage suited us 2 adults and 2 kids plus dog very well. Great location for accessing all of beautiful Cornwall. Nowhere was too far. Wish we’d stayed longer!

  • "The Coach House is a beautifully furnished cottage and had everything we needed for our stay."

    Attention to detail is first class, including a comprehensive library of reading material about Cornwall. The location a few minutes from Bodmin but close to major roads means quick access to routes to other areas of Cornwall. The cream tea waiting for us on arrival was the "icing on the cake". The owner, John gave us good tourist information about the Bodmin area and Cornwall. A great cottage that exceeded our expectations.

The property

Situated close to the centre of Cornwall, making it a perfect base, offering easy access to the whole county, this beautifully converted barn is set just outside the historic town of Bodmin with stunning far reaching countryside views. The Coach house is approached via a private lane, with just the owners as neighbours.

The lane, of arching beech trees and hazel, is lined by Cornish hedges, in Spring, smothered at their base with daffodils and primroses.

This opens into a traditional Cornish farmyard dating from the 16th century with stables, dairy, piggeries and farmhouse, all built from Cornish slate .

The property was once a dairy farm belonging to Lanhydrock House but is now privately owned and no longer a working farm. The Coach House itself at one time housed the farm implements and vehicles but has now been totally remodelled and refurbished to a high standard.

In its elevated position on the hillside it offers expansive views over gardens, woodland and surrounding farmland.

Secluded parking is available for two vehicles. The accommodation sleeps four with a double and a twin bedroom.

The open plan living room with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable sitting and dining areas leads out onto a veranda, ideal for al fresco dining or simply relaxing and taking in the views.

A luxurious bathroom offers both a separate bath and shower. Its central location makes this property ideal for exploring the whole county.

The harbours of Looe and Polperro, on the south coast.

Port Isaac and the surf of Newquay, on the north and St Michaels Mount and St Ives in the west, only an hours drive. Closer at hand historic Lanhydrock House, is a must along with the Eden Project.

And of course we are on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Cardinham Woods 1.5 miles away has miles of walking trails, great for dogs, mountain bike trails, with bike hire, and horse riding facilities, plus a great coffee shop and barbeque facilities by the river. The famous Camel Trail, for walkers and bikers, can be accessed in Bodmin. We provide an extensive list of dog walks, recommended eateries and some suggested day trips.

About the location


Lostwithiel 6 miles; St. Austell 13 miles; Padstow 16 miles; Newquay 21 miles.

Bodmin, the one-time County Town of Cornwall with its narrow streets, shops and pubs, is perfectly placed for exploring all that this fabulous holiday area has to offer. The outstanding surf, rugged cliffs and hidden coves of the north coast beaches and the quieter sands and river estuaries of the south coast are both 15 miles away while on the edge of town is the fascinating museum and haunting presence of the old Bodmin Jail. The popular Camel Trail for cyclists and walkers also winds its way through the town on its journey to the sea at Padstow. Close by are the open spaces and wind swept grandeur of Bodmin Moor while the incomparable Eden Project (11 miles), Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum (30 miles) and the beautiful harbour town of Padstow with its famous pubs and restaurants (16 miles) make for great days out. Also within easy reach and ideal for a fun-filled day out, guests can visit Lanhydrock House, the small town of Fowey and Charlestown with its Tall Ships, The Eden Project and Lostwithiel. There is a good choice of country pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area.
