Haye Barton Farm is a huge, detached, completely private, south-facing farmhouse on three levels, looking over 115 acres of farmland and bluebell woods which are all yours to roam and explore with care; there is a river – great for older children but small children should be supervised.
The village of St.Ive is 1½ miles away and the house is approached over its own track.
Step inside a huge farmhouse kitchen with dining table and chairs one end with wood-burning stove and flagstone floor, with the added novelty of a glass-topped original well by the sink!
Walk through to an equally large living room with inglenook and wood-burning stove.
At this level there is a big utility room and toilet.
Head up the stairs to five bedrooms, three king-size and one romantic super king-size four-poster and two twin.
Family bathroom and shower-room.
Take a few more stairs up to a second living room-cum-den with double sofa bed and a super-king double bedroom with en suite shower-room – in this room there are some sloping beams.
Immediately in front, there is a small, enclosed walled garden.
Once all was thriving with a variety of farming activities, now the surrounding barns are mostly vacant.
An open-ended barn contains table tennis and badminton and the rest provide sanctuary for swallows.
This is a great central spot from which to explore the county, but once here you might not want to leave!
This is a terrific family house offering freedom for children.

About the location
Liskeard 5 miles; Looe 15 miles
Close to the southern edge of Bodmin Moor, the pretty village of St Ive (there are three parts) is characterised by rolling green fields, stone circles, rocky tors and a labyrinth of paths winding through the countryside. Though the community covers a large area, its lovely old church and superb country pub act as the main focal points. There is much to do and see in this fascinating area, with the old market town of Liskeard just 5 miles away and the beaches and harbour of the quaint fishing port of Looe a mere 15 miles through the winding country lanes. In-between there’s fishing and watersports at nearby Siblyback Lake, the Donkey Sanctuary at St Annes Chapel, Cotehele House (NT) and gardens, and the championship golf course at St Mellion Country Club. For superb days out with the children try Dobwalls Theme Park (4 miles from Liskeard) or the world famous Eden Project. Even the maritime city of Plymouth with its historic Barbican docks area, outstanding shops, theatres and restaurants and the National Maritime Museum is only 40 minutes by car.
Note: 500 Yards hardcore access track. Sorry, no short breaks. This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £250
