    “Our cottage/barn was beautiful within a stunning setting and central to explore North Cornwall and beyond.”

    A gem tucked away- follow the written directions and not your Sat Nav as that will literally take you to the farm and you can’t access the holiday cottages this way. We loved Sky lark and would happily go back time and time again.

The property

Liskeard 7 miles.

Sat in a remote corner of East Taphouse village is this charming holiday cottage.

Looking out to distant countryside views, Skylark Cottage is perfect for a romantic retreat or for a small family looking to enjoy a quiet Cornish break.

Bring your pets to this gorgeous setting and head into the welcoming lounge, a private room which houses a sofa bed and a TV.

Up three split-level steps is a sociable open-plan living space, here you can prepare delicious home-cooked meals in the kitchen, sit around the dining table with a bottle of wine, and curl up in front of the woodburning stove with your other half.

The property also boasts a contemporary shower room, with a sleek walk-in shower and a toasty heated towel rail.

Withdraw upstairs to the inviting bedroom where a double bed rests below intimate sloped ceilings with airy Velux windows, ideal for stargazing.

Outside the property you can dine al fresco and make use of the barbeque and picnic bench on sunny days, enjoying the beautiful valley views.

You will also find another secure seating area providing a dog friendly space for your canine companion to roam.

A walk around nearby Lerryn takes you through woodland, farmland and along the River Fowey, with the village offering shops and a pub.

The Golitha Falls are well worth a visit, as well as Siblyback Lake for a walk around the lake with your four-legged friend.

Travel into the ancient market town of Liskeard where you'll find a wealth of amenities for all your needs, the town boasts well-stocked shops, local pubs, trendy restaurants, and quaint cafés.

Also nearby is the fishing port of Looe, home to a sandy beach and colourful harbour where all the family can delight in seaside attractions, whilst the vibrant hotspots of Fowey and Polperro are great for days out.

Other local attractions include the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Bodmin Moor, Lanhydrock House, The Eden Project, and the maritime city of Plymouth further afield, home to the National Aquarium and Barbican Theatre.
