    It is huge and has plenty of space for 14 people. The kitchen is very well equipped and the 2 extra hot plates combined with the aga made it easy for us to prepare meals, but you do need a bit of patience. We also found the enormous BBQ just outside very useful. At times the house was a bit cold or fresh but we didn't have the fires in use this would have helped. What we enjoyed best was the location. We felt alone, it was nice not having to worry about neighbours. It feels remote and close to nature but in fact it is so close to Plymouth that finding and getting there is easy. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

The property

For that very special occasion or a treat that everyone will remember, a stay at Crocadon offers a chance to step back in time.

An historic Grade II listed farmhouse, set in a stunning rural location in over 120 acres of organic farmland, Crocadon was first recorded in the 13th century when it was a notable medieval fortified mansion.

Located in South East Cornwall and close to Plymouth, Crocadon is situated on the edge of St Mellion village, opposite the internationally renowned St Mellion Golf and Country Club.

The house is approached by the original mansion's private tree and ancient hedge lined driveway then through a short walnut avenue, giving access to ample parking outside the formal entrance.

Surrounded by orchards, the house has a southerly aspect offering superb countryside views appreciated from many of the bedrooms.

As you go through into the entrance hall, crossing the original slate flagstone floor, you are now in the inner hall leading past the cloakroom to the beautiful billiard room, a lovely, light and airy room with a full-size pool table, oak floor and an open fire.

Up two steps leads you into the drawing room with panelled walls, an open fire and large sash windows overlooking one of the orchards.

From one wonderful room to another as you enter the magnificent dining hall with original slate sandstone floor, massive open granite fireplace and woodburning stove, a spectacular room for everybody to sit round the locally-made, craftsmen-built oak table to enjoy dinner.

From here you are taken to the large kitchen with slate flagstone floor, two-hob AGA and fitted bespoke oak units, with another massive table big enough to sit everybody round for breakfast.

There are seven bedrooms here, six of which are accessed by a superb dual-galleried oak staircase, all individual with oak floors, exposed beams and character throughout.

There is a mix of bath and shower rooms including three roll-top baths, two showers, six toilets as well as hand basins in most of the bedrooms.

A truly spectacular house to be enjoyed at any time of year.

About the location


Saltash 6 miles; Liskeard 11 miles; Plymouth 12 miles.

The small village of St Mellion is situated on the Devon/Cornwall border, close to Crocadon quarry, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and the St Mellion International Resort, which offers golf, leisure and spa facilities. Just 6 miles away is the town of Saltash, which is dominated by the magnificent Tamar Bridge, one of Brunel’s masterpieces of engineering. The bridge takes people from Devon to Cornwall across the Tamar River, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the town also offers a number of shops and pubs, as well as narrow streets, which rise steeply from the banks of the river. From the old quayside there are river trips up stream to Calstock, a pretty village with white cottages on a steep hillside. Here, the 120 foot giant 11-arched Calstock Railway Viaduct towers above the River Tamar and carries one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines down to the coast. The area offers some beautiful walks and cycle routes within the locality of St Mellion, plus the exploration of both moors, Bodmin and Dartmoor and the picturesque coastal paths and beaches of North and South coasts. The city of Plymouth is within driving distance, from where there is plenty to occupy visitors, including the historic Plymouth Hoe and Barbican quayside area with cafés, shops and bistros, the National Marine Aquarium and several theatres. There is something for everyone. Cornwall has many cultural attractions with National Trust properties, such as Cotelhele House & Quay just a few miles away, or the Minnack Theatre, Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project all within easy reach. St Mellion is the perfect base for exploring both Cornwall and Devon.
