  • "We loved staying at the halt there was just a few things that ruined the experience."

    The mattress needs to be replaced my partner and I both couldn't sleep on it as when we laid on it we could feel the edges of the divan underneath we had to go and spend out on a mattress topper to make the bed barrable but it still wasn't comfortable. This is very important part of a holiday and it really has made us question weather we book self catering accommodations in the future. The hot water runs out very quickly so we found ourselves needing to space out washing up and showers to conserve hot water. This could have easily been noted in a welcome pack. It might be worth noting in a welcome pack that the parking is shared as this made us anxious the first night when a new car arrived that restricted our access to and from the property. The listing is incorrect this hasn't ruined our stay but could misslead future renters.

  • "Amazing place stay and is on the camel trail half way between Bodmin and Wadebridge."

    Also it’s within walking distance of a cafe that serves wonderful cake and Cornish booze. It’s on the outskirts of Bodmin which makes it easy access for Cornwall. Majority of the distance is between 30 mins to an 1 hour and 30 mins max! Would 100% advise staying here if your a couple. The only thing I would say is that the glassware is on the smaller side (would recommend taking your own) and the freezer is really small and some stuff thaws as it hasn’t got a proper door.

  • "The cleanliness of the home was good."

    The bed and the couch were very uncomfortable. The Property was miss-sold, you stated in your sales blurb that the property has a washing machine and a dishwasher I think you deliberately misled me and other customers. If we had known there was no washing machine we wouldn't have booked. I will be looking at your brochure to make sure you ammend the description

  • "In an excellent location for a cycling or walking holiday right on the camel trail."

    The owners have the tea room next door which is perfect for a spot of lunch and a drink. The cycling path into Padstow is excellent all flat and traffic free. One thing that would be nice at the property would be a hut or shed at the back of the property to keep your bike in.

  • "Booked on line for convenience which didn't take long."

    The Halt cottage was ideal place for relaxing. The patio area was private and we sat outside most mornings after breakfast, the sun was shining through the surrounding trees. So peaceful you seemed to be in another world. Bodmin was close by which is a lovely small town to visit. There's plenty of places of interest. Bodmin jail was most interesting. National Trust house not far away and there's always Padstow which is a lovely village on the coast. Pencarrow House and gardens was delightful, in the grounds a lovely coffee shop with a variety of cakes etc. Of course there's the local vineyard to visit. Across from the cottage there's a lovely cafe for cream teas, lunches and drinks. Railway station just a short walk from the cottage. Plenty of pathways for bikers and walkers. So pleased with our holiday.

The property

Bodmin 3 miles.

A homely ground floor cottage, tucked away between Bodmin and Wadebridge in the beautiful Camel Valley close to the Camel Trail with miles of traffic free cycling and walking.

Designed to bring you a cosy holiday experience all-year-round.

Presented as a studio accommodation, this retreat makes a lovely base to return to after exploring the local area and beyond.

The open-plan living area welcomes a couple with its comfortable sofa and dining table, ideal accommodation for 2 people.

A pretty kitchen rests close by, fitted in a contemporary fashion with views leaning out towards the valley, which you can admire as you go about your leisure time.

To complete the interior, a wonderful double bedroom is coordinated in an almost seaside theme and elegantly accessorised to set a relaxing scene for a good night’s sleep.

You will look forward to waking up and getting yourself ready in the en-suite shower room, immaculately styled with a sense of luxury to set you up for a day of adventure and so much more.

Why not spend some time relaxing on the patio area, accompanied by furniture and a lovely lawn area, before wandering further afield?

The outstanding Cornish beaches, rugged cliffs and hidden coves of the North coast and the quieter sands of the South coast are both 15 miles away, just waiting to be explored.

Close by is the award winning Camel Valley Vineyard, not forgetting the beautiful harbour town of Padstow with its famous pubs and restaurants making for great days out.

Close by are the open spaces and wind swept grandeur of Bodmin Moor while the incomparable Eden Project (8 miles), Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum (30 miles) and the beautiful harbour town of Padstow with its famous pubs and restaurants (15 miles) make for great days out.

The Halt is only a short drive (15 miles) to some of Cornwall's best beaches.

Also within easy reach and ideal for a fun-filled day out, guests can visit Lanhydrock House, the small towns of Fowey and Charlestown with its Tall Ships.
