Located on an ancient farmstead in a lush, pretty valley just outside Lostwithiel, Roosters is a beautifully presented and luxurious barn conversion.
Offering split-level accommodation for four, this lovely property boasts wonderfully green views of the surrounding countryside, and is a haven for those seeking peace and tranquillity.
Entry to the property is on the first floor level, straight into the bright and airy open plan living space where a high, beamed ceiling affords plenty of natural light.
With a modern country cottage feel, guests will feel immediately at home here – comfortable and looked-after.
A dual-aspect master bedroom with Juliet balcony is located on the first floor; a twin bedroom with en-suite wet room is situated on the ground floor.
The terraced patio with pretty borders is a lovely spot for a summer barbecue or morning coffee; guests also benefit from access to a small lawned garden (shared with two adjacent holiday barns) as well as nine acres of the owner’s grassland, home to a flock of Shropshire sheep.
When you feel ready to explore further, the medieval town of Lostwithiel is just a short drive away; here you will find a number of good restaurants and pubs, delicatessens and plenty of antique shops – something which the town has become famous for!
The area surrounding Lostwithiel is a rambler’s paradise; mysterious and atmospheric Bodmin Moor is not far away, and the South West Coast Path offers some of the most beautiful scenery in the county.
Visit the quintessentially Cornish ports of Polperro and Fowey, or catch the passenger ferry across to Mevagissey – you might even spot a dolphin on the way!
Well-placed for a relaxing holiday away from it all, Roosters offers a luxurious break whatever the time of year.
About the location
Bodmin 5.5 miles; Fowey 7 miles.
A delightfully peaceful country town, nestling in the Fowey river valley amid the woods and fields that characterise the area. Renowned as a centre for the antiques trade, there are several shops and dealers in the town, as well as a fine collection of country pubs, restaurants and a thriving farmer’s market. Lanhydrock House (NT) and gardens is just 3 miles away, while the fabulous Boconnoc House, Eden Project, shipwreck museum and tall ships harbour at Charlestown, and the picturesque fishing villages of Mevagissey, Fowey and Padstow, with the famous Rick Stein restaurants, are all within easy driving distance. The tumbling Atlantic surf, long sandy beaches and dramatic coastline of the north coast, including at the renowned Newquay, make for great days out and there is also chance to enjoy river canoeing, biking, hiking and leisurely walks in this lovely area. The friendly locals also have ongoing activities, such as the raft race, the famous tug of war, Carnival week and seagull outboard motor races. The river Fowey runs from the town on its 8 mile journey through the fields and wooded valleys to the gentler southern coast, a natural paradise for those who love the sea. Centrally placed, with much to do and see in the immediate area, Lostwithiel is the perfect choice for those seeking a break away from the hectic pace of the tourist resorts.
