    Mr Cox

    “We chose this barn because of the promise of a heated,outside swimming pool.”

    The barn and the setting was in every other respect gorgeous but we were so disappointed that we and the children were unable to use the pool as it was very cold.

    The barn and the setting was in every other respect gorgeous but we were so disappointed that we and the children were unable to use the pool as it was very cold. We think the fact that it relies on a ground source heat pump and so depends on the air temperature should be made clear so if its cold then the pool will be cold and wet suits would be needed as in the sea. We have wet suits but did not bring them as we thought the pool was heated.

The property

Stoke Climsland 1.5 miles.

A superb rural barn conversion set in glorious countryside in the hamlet of Goosewell in the Tamar Valley, Cornwall.

For those seeking a family holiday in total privacy, this most spacious house has a magnificent garden and 30' x 14' swimming pool that is hard to beat.

This is a wonderful house offering peace and solitude for families or couples to get away from it all and enjoy time together in a beautiful location.

You access this lovely cottage down a private lane and enter on the first floor via a small flight of steps, then pass through the well-equipped kitchen into the dining area before entering the splendid sitting room complete with a log burner and piano, perfect for family get togethers.

The far-reaching views from here are wonderful and can be enjoyed even more by stepping out onto the balcony.

There are five bedrooms, with one on the first floor and four on the ground floor with a bathroom on each.

The master double has its own conservatory leading out to the private enclosed garden and from here it’s a short stroll down through the garden to the swimming pool, great for a dip before breakfast.

The cottage is only one and a half miles from two of Cornwall's finest pubs and restaurants, the award-winning Springer Spaniel in Treburley being one, owned by a renowned former MasterChef winner, and the other being the 15th century Royal Inn at Horsebridge where Charles I is reputed to have visited and left his seal 'for services rendered'!

For gourmet dining, Olga Polizzi's (the Hotel Inspector) Hotel Endsleigh is just five miles away and The Horn of Plenty is six miles away.

Nearby Callington, a lovely market town set in the heart of the Tamar Valley and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers a good selection of shops, inns and cafes, as well as being the home of Ginster’s Cornish pasties.

A little further afield explore either by foot, car or horseback, Bodmin moor and Dartmoor as well as the north and south coasts, both easily accessible.

There are also some beautiful gardens to explore in this area of Cornwall, including those of Cotehele, Caerhays Castle, Lanhydrock and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Not far from the cottage is Plymouth, a fabulous waterside city with a wealth of attractions, including the historic Barbican, the National Marine Aquarium and a selection of restaurants, theatres and shops.

St. Mellion International Resort is only ten miles away, offering an opportunity for non-members to play golf on the famous Nicklaus Course.

Slightly further afield near St. Austell, is the Eden Project, a popular visitor attraction that makes for an interesting day out.

This lovely cottage offers a relaxing and peaceful holiday even in the height of summer, and will have you returning year after year.

About the location


Callington 2 miles; Calstock 7 miles; Plymouth 18 miles.

Stoke Climsland, a small village on the East Cornwall-Devon border is home to the Stoke Climsland Post Office Stores, which has served at the heart of the local community since the reign of Queen Victoria. To the south of the parish is Kit Hill standing over 100 feet tall, and donated to the people of Cornwall by Prince Charles, the Duchy of Cornwall, to celebrate the birth of his first son Prince William. Kit Hill is an ideal place for walking, bird watching, kite flying and picnics. Two miles away is Callington, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and offering a good selection of shops, inns and cafes, as well as being the home of Ginsters Cornish pasties, certainly worth a visit on your way to a day’s walk on Dartmoor. A little further away, is the quaint village of Calstock clinging to the steep banks of the river Tamar and dominated by the splendid Calstock Railway Viaduct, a giant 11-arched stone construction supporting one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines running through the Tamar Valley. A splendid base to explore south Cornwall and West Devon.
