  • "A very nice cottage in a beautifully secluded location."

    The owners were lovely and always on hand should you need them. The place was spotless and well maintained. It had everything you could need. As secluded as it is you were only 15 minute walk from St Neot village and the lovely London Inn which was a nice friendly place for a pint and bite to eat (dog friendly too). Would definitely recommend for a couple or small family wanting a relaxing break.

  • "Wendy the owner was welcoming and there if we needed her, she also offered more towels and bedding as we stayed for two weeks."

    The cottage was excellent all we could wish for and more, everywhere was spotlessly clean.. They even left a cupboard empty to put our groceries in, most places neglect to do this. Loved the gated entrance and our dog enjoyed the extended garden. We visited Looe, Polperro, Newquay and Padstow and a trip on the Steam train at Bodmin. The local pub the London Inn in St. Neots was so friendly and the food was excellent. We would highly recommend it.

  • "A beautiful cottage, well laid out, with everything you need to kick back and relax."

    Pretty much in the middle of Cornwall, so a good place to explore the rest of the county from. We had one minor issue on arrival, in which the oven in the cottage was not working, we were immediately given the opportunity of using an oven in another cottage which was not being used, with the oven in our cottage being completely replaced by the time we returned from our day out on the Monday, very fast resolution. Wendy the owner made it very clear she was available if any issues occurred, but they didn't once oven replaced. Very dog friendly with a big well kept garden area. We would definitely stay in this cottage again in the future and would highly recommend it to anybody wanting to stay in Cornwall.

  • "Lovely house, that has been finished well and to a really nice standard."

    Clean and nicely furnished and had everything we needed. Beautiful location and owner was really friendly. Good location with it's easy access to its beautiful villages and towns all within an hour (Boscastle, Port Isaac, Fowey, Polperro, Polruan, Mevagissey, Padstow, Falmouth, to name a few!). Would definitely recommend!

The property

Resting on the edge of the majestic Bodmin Moor and a stone’s throw away from the charming village of St Neot is The Hayloft.

This barn conversion has been transformed to offer families a base in which to explore this countryside setting of Cornwall, as well glorious north and south Cornish coastlines.

This property enjoys a reverse-level plan to make the most of the surrounding rural views as you enjoy your time at this property.

After an action-packed day, head up to the first-floor and into the open-plan living room, where you will find everything you could possibly need to enjoy a self-catered stay.

This room has been designed with a refreshing ambiance, which complements the original features of the exposed beams.

The kitchen area is fully-functioning to create your own delicious meals, or perhaps try your hand at a Cornish delicacy to enjoy at the quaint dining table.

After dinner, choose a book or tune into the TV with DVD player and flick on the electric fire, before snuggling up on the plush sofa during a winter’s evening.

When sleep calls, head downstairs to one of the two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, both enjoying plenty of storage space and pretty views of the surroundings.

Concluding the ground floor is a family shower room, complete with a walk-in shower, basin and WC.

To the exterior of the dwelling is the garden area, where table and chairs offer an alternative dining arrangement, whilst admiring the pretty setting of the garden.

If you can tear yourself away from this charming property, take a drive to Dobwells, where you will find a range of local businesses and a shop for picking up the essentials, accompanied by a pub or travel slightly further to Liskeard, where a larger selection of amenities can be found.

For those feeling adventures, be sure to visit the local attraction of Golitha Falls and the River Fowey, or explore the miles of walking routes upon the Bodmin Moor, which offers diverse landscapes and picaresque scenery.

For a coastal day out, take a scenic drive to the fishing harbours of Looe, Fowey and Polperro, or try your hand at surfing at the beach of Polzeath, which is situated in North Cornwall.

Other attractions which are well-worth a visit whilst here include, Cheesewring, Rillaton Barrow and the Hurlers, as well as the Minions Heritage Centre to immerse yourself in the local history.

The Hayloft is an idyllic getaway to this part of Cornwall.

About the location


Dobwalls 3 miles; Liskeard 6.5 miles; Bodmin 9 miles.

St Neot is one of Bodmin Moor’s prettiest villages and nestles in the sheltered St Neot river valley on the southern edge of Bodmin Moor in south east Cornwall, enjoying the mild Cornish climate and an outstanding community spirit. The village has a pub, shop and the Door Step Green, a garden created by villagers and a wonderful peaceful place to relax near the church, made famous by its medieval stained glass windows and the Holy Well nearby. Just south of the village are the Carnglaze Caverns, the result of slate quarrying and mining in the 18th and 19th century and now a fabulous tourist attraction open all year round and with three gigantic caverns with stunning subterranean lake in 6.5 acres of woodlands with fairy glen and picnic areas. There are some outstanding and varied walks in the area, including the “Two Valleys Walk” which follows part of the Fowey River, followed by farmland, open moors and forest, and a walk to the spectacular Golitha Falls is also a must. Many archaeological remains have been found on Bodmin Moor and the well known Jamaica Inn and the magic of Dozmary Pool, where King Arthur's sword Excalibur lies, are all within easy reach of St Neot. The north and south Cornish coasts can be reached in half an hour, where practically all forms of watersports and beach activities can be enjoyed. Other places of interest are Siblyback Lake, just 2 miles away and Colliford Lake, 5 miles away. Siblyback Lake is an ideal location for sailing, windsurfing and canoeing or take to Colliford Lake for a relaxing day fishing.
