The property

Superbly located for touring all of Cornwall, this delightful, semi-detached farm cottage near the hamlet of Bolventor is surrounded by far-reaching moorland and countryside.

Approached along a private lane just off the A30, as you drive towards the cottage leaving the main road behind you, all you will see for miles are the surrounding fields and moors, rolling off towards the horizon.

Entering the cottage, you'll immediately sense the charm and character that exudes throughout.

Head through to the well-equipped kitchen with dining area, onto the spacious sitting room with a cosy woodburner set in its massive stone fireplace, the perfect place to curl up in front of after a long day walking the moors.

There are three bedrooms to choose from, with two on the first floor and one on the ground floor.

Walkers will delight at the many magnificent footpaths which trail practically past the doorstep, with the two highest points in Cornwall both close by.

Enjoy the challenging hike, where on a clear day you’ll be rewarded by magnificent views stretching from the north coast at mystical Tintagel, to the south coast at pretty Fowey.

Set close to the A30, which runs the length of the county, a day trip to discover many of Cornwall’s delights is at your fingertips.

The nearby Bodmin Moor, which has recently been given dark sky status makes for a wonderful evening.

The world-famous Jamaica Inn is just two miles away; immortalised by Daphne Du Maurier’s bestseller, and being the nearest pub to your cottage, it’s definitely worthy of a visit.

With its stunning, wild and windswept location offering the feeling of remoteness, and yet with easy access to all of Cornwall, Blackadon Farm Cottage is ideal for your next Cornish getaway.

About the location


Bodmin 10 miles; Launceston 14 miles

The vast and rugged Bodmin Moor, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, forms over 150 square miles of striking, rocky landscape, with much of it declared a Site of Specific Scientific Importance. This ancient location is home to mystical standing stones, old buildings dating from medieval times and thousands of years’ worth of tin mining heritage. There are plenty of beautiful walks to discover, with challenging climbs up some of the tallest spots in Cornwall, offering fantastic far-reaching views towards both the north and south coast on fine days. The nearby town of Launceston, fondly thought of as the Gateway to Cornwall, can be found to the north east, with beautiful Georgian buildings set around its central square, and romantic ruins of a Norman castle at the outskirts. In the other direction, the historic town of Bodmin lies to the south west, with a host of exciting attractions including its Courtroom Experience, the Bodmin Jail, the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, or a trip to see each of the seven holy wells, which lie dotted around the town. Ancient Jamaica Inn, which lies in the heart of the moor, brims with smuggling and pirate history; almost 300 years old, it's celebrated in Daphne du Maurier’s popular novel and is well worth a visit. With much to see and do, and stunning scenery all around, Bodmin Moor is a delightful destination for your holiday.
