  • “Although the accommodation itself was as expected and very well presented my initial search was for a property which had a pub and a shop within a mile of the location.”

    Although this property is listed as having both it had neither. We were looking forward to some pub food in the evening with a couple of glasses of wine and then walking it off getting back to the accommodation. Unfortunately both the shop and the pub were more than two miles away and although the property was excellent we would not have booked it if it had not been advertised as being less than a mile to both. Please remove the “Pub/shop < 1 mile” from the property details.

The property

This smart detached cottage is opposite the owners’ house beside a no through farm lane at the top end of Roadford Lake.

Smart and reverse level, it has been beautifully converted from an old working horse’s stable to create a peaceful spot for anyone who loves the great outdoors.

Head on into the ground level and your three bedrooms, one en suite, and family bathroom.

Take the stairs up to the roomy open plan living space complete with slate floor, comfy seating and door to steps down to a sunny patio for enjoying barbecues and storing your bikes under cover.

You also have an enclosed garden with lawn sheltered by old oak trees.

Put on your boots and head out to walk and explore the twelve acres of woods full of wildlife and the bridle path to a conservation area beside the lake in about a mile.

The lake itself is fantastic for water sports.

You can hire watery equipment, go fishing or tackle the climbing wall and high ropes.

Lookout for rare birds as you walk and cycle around the lake.

The lovely North Cornwall beaches are great for surfing day trips.

Acorn Cottage is a charming base for being active or enjoying the peace.
