  • "Absolutely beautiful property."

    WIFI insufficient to run Alexa device but tv signal ok but did drop in and out. However as we played games in the evening this was not a big issue for us. Geraldine the houekeeper was lovely and very welcoming and is on hand for any issues. Peaceful and interesting terrain, free from human noise, great nature walks for adenturers.

  • "We were very impressed with the extreme cleanliness of the cottage."

    The welcome pack, logs and coal were excellent. Geraldine was very helpful, welcoming and always on hand if needed. The area is stunning. We would definitely stay again.

    We are so pleased you liked the welcome pack, logs, coal and overall cleanliness of Pandia. Wonderful too that you liked the local landscape. It is a real delight to wander up on the moors. Apart from huge skies, you will see a lot of wildlife, including buzzards. Colliford Lake is a large reservior nearby, great for walking dogs and dramatic light. And we now have hedgehogs in the garden from time to time. Rabbits, foxes and roe deer like to visit. The bird life around the grounds is wonderful - green and spotted woodpeckers, nuthatches, flycatchers and a few rooks. Property Owner

    Pandia is such a wonderful relaxing cottage ,we loved its quirky atmosphere, it was so welcoming and comfortable, Geraldine made us feel so welcome making sure we had everything we required for a fabulous week can’t thank her enough , it was beautifully clean and warm , loved the open fire , Wi-Fi worked really well which surprised us as we normally never have a signal in Cornwall , we enjoyed our visit and will return again thank you so much

    Thank you for such positive feedback about a visit at the turn of the year. The weather can be a bit rough sometimes, but in Warleggan there are always a few camellias to greet you in the garden. And yes, a crackling open fire is a wonderful thing! Thank you. Property Owner

  • "Wonderfully peaceful."

    No noise, no lights, no traffic. Perfect for a complete break from a hectic life.

    We are delighted you had a restful time. At night, the stars can be astounding, and you can hear foxes calling, and owls. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is lovely 2nd time we have stayed at pandia, Geraldine is very helpful and even provided extra towels for us, when she knew our daughters were visiting."

    Couldn't fault it. Only one small thing is it could do with a bit more outside lighting, as it is very dark as the evenings are drawing in. We would definitely stay again and hope to do so. Big thanks from us for a lovely stay

    Thank you for your kind feedback and we love it when people come back for more! About lighting, we will think about this as this is the second comment we have received. The main issue is that the stars at night are so wonderful. We love our "dark sky" status and being in nature the way nature planned it - and indeed when it is dark it is very dark! There are two lights at the top and bottom of the steps so they are safe. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay in Pandia."

    The gardens are lovely and the cottage was spotless. We had a warm welcome from Geraldine the caretaker. We enjoyed many walks, some directly from the cottage. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable.

    Great to know you loved the gardens. And we work hard to make sure the cottage is really clean and cosy We have created booklets of local walks for visitors, which you are welcome to take with you when you venture out onto the moors. These booklets show the walks and include a lot of local history as well. Property Owner

    Bodmin moors were a hilight of our stay driving through wild roaming highland cattle and ponies. Would definitely return and recommend

    Super feedback, and we are pleased you enjoyed wild Bodmin Moor. For archaeologists, too, there is so much to see - particularly wonderful are the Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments, locally as well as at Rough Tor (pronounced Rau Tor). People have been loving this place for so long! Property Owner

    Our children loved the grounds and the dogs loved it even more. Its even better than the photos - amazing setting, fabulous owner / housekeeper and the home is beautiful and traditional. On leaving we felt another outside light would be of benefit as it is VERY dark of an evening but thats just a slight point. I dare say we will be back ... we never ran out of things to do either. Thank you

    Thank you, and it was great to meet you all! Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely holiday in this cottage, it was very relaxed, just like a home from home."

    Everything was catered for and it is set in the loveliest gardens, so it was a pleasure to come back to or just relax in the gardens for the day. The caretaker is close by if you need anything and she is very helpful and freindly . This is in a lovely part of Cornwall with lots to do close by

    We do encourage visitors to enjoy the gardens. We put a lot of effort into the borders and the woodlands - the beech and rhododendron were planted around 1860 and are now vast! Lots of bluebells and daffodils too, in season. Property Owner

  • "A lovely, quiet place and as previous reviews have mentioned - great for dogs."

    All that we wanted ... Unfortunately, as is the way with dog owners, there are always some who are irresponsible and let their dogs roam around the property leaving their poo everywhere. One other client on this site had three dogs and let them do whatever they wanted wherever they wanted and sadly it was in our garden area !

    Dear Mrs Hemingway. We are so pleased you loved the property and that it was "all that you wanted". I am currently not on the property due to travel restrictions, but it really surprised me to learn that another visitor did not manage their dogs appropriately. This has never happened before - the occasional poo gets missed but I have not experienced such behaviour. It is also incredibly unusual for any other visitors to allow their dogs into the private space around Pandia. Again, I am unfamiliar with such crass behaviour. I am really sorry and do apologize. It is a pity, though, you did not inform the onsite caretaker, Geraldine, as she would have had a word with the other visitors to make sure this did not happen. I kindly request anyone else staying at Pandia to share absolutely any concerns, doggy or otherwise, rightaway with Geraldine, as between us we are pretty good at sorting things out. Finally, I want to inform anyone reading this review that we have one apartment in the old rectory open to couples or single people. There is a lot of space - three hectares of beechwood, lawn and gardens, so usually visitors do not come across each other. And, as I say above, most visitors to the other property are just amazingly wonderful and considerate. In any case, it seems like you had a good time apart from this, so that is very pleasing. Thank you for letting us know. Property Owner

We had such a good time, we extended our stay by an extra three nights. This is a little oasis of peace and tranquility, set in beautiful countryside. The housekeeper was attentive and friendly (and loves dogs). We’ll definitely be back !

  • "Pandia is ideal for holidays with dogs."

    It is kept very clean and well equipped. The kitchen is great for cooking 'at home' and the grounds ideal for dogs. We stayed in November and the weather was not great. Also, we had to cut our holiday short (just as the weather improved!) because of the second corona virus lockdown. We still enjoyed our stay.

  • "The cottage is really in an idealic position, secluded and quiet surrounded by lovely gardens."

    It is quite spacious, not super modern but has a great open fire with a limitless supply of coal and wood. Geraldine the caretaker is very helpful. Generally the cottage is very well heated though there was a slight problem at the start with the bedroom heaters being set too low but Sykes rectified this with the owners who live in Germany and who control it from there. The kitchen is generally well equipped but needs more cutlery, only five of everything is bonkers and it needs another frying pan..My partner complained that all the knives are blunt. The main problem was that the Wi-Fi gave out half way through which coupled with the fact that we could not get a signal on our phones was a problem. We were not expecting fast broadband just a slow signal. The cottage is more or less on the Moor and we spent most of our time walking on it. Overall it's a lovely place to stay

    Thank you for your kind review (which you have also posted through TripAdvisor). We are so glad you love the spaciousness of Pandia and the open fire, and also enjoyed meeting our lovely caretaker. Regarding WiFi, we are sorry that this was an issue during your stay and beyond our control. Fortunately BT were able to put it right and since then it has functioned perfectly. We do not control the heaters from Germany, they are very new and we have had to learn how to manage them. We programmed them to provide heat from 5 am onwards and up to midnight. We have now upped the settings based on your feedback. Great to know you made good use of the well-equipped kitchen, we do our best to provide a lot of kitchenware for cooking enthusiasts. It is great to know you spent a lot of time walking locally. The house is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, just off the moor. Thank you again for taking the time to leave us your feedback. Property Owner

    If you enjoy walking then you can simply walk out of the door and explore some lovely parts of Bodmin Moor without having to travel in the car. It is situated with easy access to both North and South Cornish coasts and the nearest supermarkets are with in easy reach. The cottage itself is well equipped with all the amenities you require and is situated with its own private garden. We recieved a lovely warm welcome from Geraldine and the welcome pack was much appreciated. Hopefully we would like to return in the future and explore some more as a week just isn't long enough.

  • "It is always good to have a downstairs toilet rather than running up and down the stairs every time nature calls which is what we had to do, as we live in a bungalow, took a while to adjust."

    Also, one of our dogs likes to wander and there are steps down from the garden he likes to explore and we couldn't relax fully because he is inclined to take himself off and had to watch him carefully (he is also hard of hearing so called him back many times very loudly) these are the only negative comments and does not take away from the peaceful, lovely setting of Pandia and the comfort and homeliness of the inside. Have stayed twice now and would definitely make it a third.

    We were impressed with the tranquility of the location. Yes there was the odd aircraft but there were little or no traffic for the period we stayed , there were no sounds of industry or passing emergency vehicles. The only sound which was virtually heard for every daylight hour was that of the many wild birds which we could see in the grounds and surroundings of "Pandia Cottage". This atmosphere was the compelling reason we had to return this year. We were also grateful for the help and advice we were given by Geraldine who lived on the site in the "Rookery" nearby.

About the location

BODMIN MOOR

Bodmin 7 miles; Launceston 14 miles

The vast and rugged Bodmin Moor, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, forms over 150 square miles of striking, rocky landscape, with much of it declared a Site of Specific Scientific Importance. This ancient location is home to mystical standing stones, old buildings dating from medieval times and thousands of years’ worth of tin mining heritage. There are plenty of beautiful walks to discover, with challenging climbs up some of the tallest spots in Cornwall, offering fantastic far-reaching views towards both the north and south coast on fine days. The nearby town of Launceston, fondly thought of as the Gateway to Cornwall, can be found to the north east, with beautiful Georgian buildings set around its central square, and romantic ruins of a Norman castle at the outskirts. In the other direction, the historic town of Bodmin lies to the south west, with a host of exciting attractions including its Courtroom Experience, the Bodmin Jail, the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, or a trip to see each of the seven holy wells, which lie dotted around the town. Ancient Jamaica Inn, which lies in the heart of the moor, brims with smuggling and pirate history; almost 300 years old, it's celebrated in Daphne du Maurier’s popular novel and is well worth a visit. With much to see and do, and stunning scenery all around, Bodmin Moor is a delightful destination for your holiday.
