The property

Settled in the charming village of Lifton is this wonderful manor house, found in the centre of this quaint settlement, this property boasts traditional and spacious rooms with contemporary features.

The Old Manor House is a great choice for a family holiday as it has plenty of room sleeping up to ten guests and holds a central position so you can tour the very best locations.

Beginning with the homely sitting room, here you can feel the character of the property come out in full flow, with two fireplaces - one holding an open fire (for decoration only) and the other, a woodburning stove - and antique style furnishings beneath the exposed wooden beams, you will be hard pressed to find somewhere more inviting than here.

Watch TV with your loved ones or pick one of the many board games to choose from and enjoy some quality time together.

Head into the kitchen/diner when everyone is hungry and get cooking using the fantastic electric range cooker and hob, with sofas in here and a dining table as well, there's plenty of room for some supervisors to oversee the chefs with a glass of wine.

For more formal evenings, serve up a feast in the dining room where a beautiful long table rests with ornately carved legs, with a woodburning stove set in a rustic stone fireplace.

Soak in the bubbling hot tub after a busy day of exploring the surrounding area, while the children play on the large lawn area.

When you're ready to rest up for the next day ahead, travel up to the first floor to find five beautiful double bedrooms, enjoying charming views from the windows over the village and adorned with quality bed linens and furnishings to make you feel as settled as possible.

Some of the bedrooms have access to a lovely en-suite or shared en-suite bathroom, while the final bedroom features a double bed with a spiral staircase leading to a pleasant space with a sofa bed, a perfect spot for enjoying some quiet time away from the crowd.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful home, then begin with a beach day at Boscastle Beach for sun, sea and sand, with nearby towns along Cornwall's north coast well worth a visit too, including the charming old fishing village of Port Isaac, or the historic Tintagel, the supposed birthplace of King Arthur with a rugged clifftop holding an amazing statue in tribute to this myth and a castle to be explored.

Both the Bodmin Moors and the Tamar Valley AONB offer amazing walking country, along with the huge Dartmoor National Park where a whole host of activities can be enjoyed.

The Old Manor House is a fabulous property with a perfect balance of old and new, waiting to be the gracious host to your family holiday in Devon.
