  • “The cottage is beautiful, with its beams, log burner and country kitchen.”

    The gardens are fantastic, so much space and the fish pond is a bonus. The owners are lovely, left us to on with the holiday but available if you have any questions or fancy a quick natter!

    The gardens are fantastic, so much space and the fish pond is a bonus. The owners are lovely, left us to on with the holiday but available if you have any questions or fancy a quick natter! Please note though there is no enclosed garden area. It's all open plan. We require an enclosed garden because of our dog, this is always the first thing we look for when booking a holiday. Not a great start to the holiday! This was the only issue we had. Everything else was perfect!

The property

A stone farmhouse cottage adjoined to the owner's own home set amidst rural countryside, close to the attractive village of Lifton on the Devon and Cornwall border.

Jane’s Place is located on a smallholding amongst the country lanes near the Devon/Cornwall border, ideal for exploring both counties.

There is an acre of stunning gardens for guests to wander in at leisure, with far-reaching views and a well-stocked lake and an abundance of wildlife.

The cottage is conveniently placed just a few minutes’ drive from the A30, yet the peace and quiet is sure to relax guests as soon as they arrive.

The cottage whilst having been tastefully modernised, is overflowing with character and charm, evident as you step over the threshold into the cosy sitting room.

A large Inglenook fireplace takes centre stage, with original timber beams and whitewashed stone walls creating a wonderful cosy room to relax.

A bespoke country kitchen/diner provides a cosy room for cooking local Lifton farm produce, sipping tea and relaxing with friends.

There is the benefit of two bathrooms; a ground floor wet room and a first floor bathroom.

The two bedrooms are spacious, light and overlook the beautiful gardens and countryside beyond.

There are several options for garden areas with this cottage; the rear garden is enclosed, attracts the evening sun and has a BBQ – great for relaxing.

Or guests can wander down to the lake, enjoy woodland walks around it or fish for tench, bream and roach.

This is the ideal country escape with the Fox & Grapes, Arundell Arms and Lifton Farm Shop found in the village three miles away.

Just four miles away is Roadford Lake, a fantastic day out for water activities, high rope walks or picnics.

Enjoy the nature trails, the whole area is dog friendly and the café serves locally produced mouthwatering snacks and light lunches.

Visit Dingles Fairground Heritage centre, numerous National Trust houses, Cowslip patchwork shop & café or Launceston castle and steam train.

Bring your walking boots as this is perfect walking country with both Dartmoor and Bodmin within easy reach and for days on the beach head west to the North Cornish coast and the beaches of Bude, Widemouth Bay and Crackington Haven, all reachable in a little over 40 minutes’ drive.

Jane’s Place is a wonderfully secluded retreat with all the comforts of home, its central position perfect for discovering new places and enjoying the great outdoors.
