  • "Exceptional property in a picturesque and quiet rural location."

    Easy to access all the parts of Cornwall we wanted to visit on this occasion. Really high standard of accommodation. We didn't want for anything and felt completely at home. We would love to come back someday. Our 2yr old lab enjoyed chasing the ball in the generous back garden.

  • "We left a thankyou card with our comments, but in short, the Orchard was a real delight."

    Very thoughtfully appointed, which made for an easy stay. Lovely rural peaceful location and watching the sheep in the adjacent field was an added bonus.

  • "We had a wonderful week (despite the rain!"

    !) in Orchard Cottage. Everything was exactly as stated and the whole family, including a 6 year old and a dog enjoyed the comfortable surroundings. We like cooking and were happy with the quality of the kitchen and had more than enough pots and pans etc. The washing machine and dryer worked overtime as we kept getting wet and muddy walking in the beautiful countryside. We would be very happy to stay again. Thank you!

    Dear Daniel, That's wonderful to know, glad you all had a great time despite the weather! we appreciate your feedback. Many thanks Property Owner

    Equipped to a high standard, with everything you could need, and more. The only downside was that we had to check out at the end of the week, as we would love to have stayed forever!

  • "The Orchard is an absolutely beautiful barn conversion in an excellent location if you love the outdoors."

    Footpaths and bridle ways are easily accessible directly from the barn and numerous OS maps of the local area are provided by the owners. A great location if you love walking, mountain biking or horse riding. You can spend hours watching the local wildlife from the comfort of the sitting room...buzzards, foxes, rabbits, jays, blue tits, chaffinches, robins, black birds, swallows, the list could go on! The barn has absolutely everything you need for when you don't fancy trapsing out in bad assortment of books and games are provided by the owners. Equally if you wanted to explore further a field, within 10 minutes you can be back on the A30. The owners are really responsive if you do have any questions during your stay. We highly recommend a stay at The Orchard.

  • "How lucky were we to be the first guests to stay in this fabulous property."

    Newly renovated and furnished with a well-equipped kitchen and utility room, with a huge corner sofa and extremely comfortable beds. It didn't matter if the weather was stormy outside as we were happy to stay in. There is very limited phone signal (O2 and EE mobiles) however the WiFi worked great and it wasn't a problem for us. Despite being a substantial property, the Orchard has such a cosy and homely feel, we really didn't want to leave. The Orchard is in a very central location, with easy access to lots of different areas of Cornwall, both on the north and south coasts and the views from the property are simply stunning. The welcome pack was very informative and the complimentary essentials were greatly appreciated. We loved our holiday here and would love to stay again!

The village of Cardinham in Mid Cornwall has a church and there's also a cafe in Cardinham Woods, a haven for cyclists and walkers situated just a few miles away. Bodmin, the one time County Town of Cornwall with its narrow streets, shops and pubs, is perfectly placed for exploring all that this fabulous holiday area has to offer. The outstanding surf, rugged cliffs and hidden coves of the north coast beaches and the quieter sands and river estuaries of the south coast are both 15 miles away while on the edge of town is the fascinating museum and haunting presence of the old Bodmin Jail. The popular Camel Trail for cyclists and walkers also winds its way through the town on its journey to the sea at Padstow. Close by are the open spaces and wind swept grandeur of Bodmin Moor while the incomparable Eden Project (11 miles), Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum (30 miles) and the beautiful harbour town of Padstow with its famous pubs and restaurants (16 miles) make for great days out. Nearby there is the impressive National Trust property of Lanhydrock House open all year, offering a complete insight to life from Queen Victoria to the First World War. For Steam Railway Enthusiasts there is also the Bodmin and Wenford Railway which also connects with the Camel Trail.
