  • "Patio Flat was perfect for our needs."

    Spacious and dog friendly with direct access on to huge garden. Delicious coffee and wine and biscuits generously provided. My only minor thing would be , it would be nice to have a bit more furniture in the bedroom. There was only one chair and its nice to have somewhere to put your clothes etc when you take them off at night. Maybe a dressing table, another chair, a rug. Otherwise ideal price , location, etc etc .

  • "Excellent break at the Patio flat."

    Comfortable, warm and great welcome pack. Lovely garden and each day filled with birdsong. If you don't mind the remote location then would highly recommend.

    The birds are indeed full of joy and bring us much delight. It is great you found Patio warm and cosy, and that you like the Welcome Pack. Patio Flat is in deep countryside and very peaceful. The A30 and A38 are, though, not far away and give one ready access to much of Cornwall. Thanks so much for your kind remarks. Property Owner

  • "We were greeted by the owner on arrival."

    We had some lovely welcome gifts. The Flat is in beautiful grounds [Would be wonderful in the Spring]. Warleggan is a tiny hamlet [twinned with Narnia]. The owner has left lots of info about the history of the house, also a list of walks. We would like a return stay

    Thank you for your great feedback and we hope to see you back soon - May is perhaps the best time for the flowers - especially bluebells. From now onwards camellias and daffodils abound. We are glad you like the information about the walks - we have produced guides to three local walks, as well as local history for those who love knowing about the past as well as the present.

    Just right for 2 people & a dog. This place is all about getting away from it all. Absolute peace & quiet. Geraldine was as helpful as ever. The only thing inside that I (Jill) am finding more difficult now as I am ageing, is getting up off the sofa. The knees complain somewhat

    We really having you and your dog to stay. As you say it is such a very peaceful place and dogs love it. There is so much to discover! Property Owner

  • "We have had a lovely week here, to celebrate our 8th anniversary."

    The Patio Flat and surrounding gardens are beautiful, it is a very quiet, peaceful place to stay and Geraldine was very welcoming. Our only (very) slight minor points to note are; access to the property is via some very, very tight country lanes - if you’re not a confident driver you may struggle with these. A dishwasher would have been handy, although we understand the washer/dryer might be more useful for people coming for longer stays. During our stay, we visited Moor View Alpacas, Newquay, St Ives, St Michael’s Mount, Eden Project, Carnglaze Caverns, Bodmin Jail, Tintagel Castle and St Nectan’s Waterfall, all of which we would recommend! It was our first time visiting Cornwall, and we certainly wouldn’t hesitate to come back again. Thank you so much for a fabulous stay. Sophie and Aaran x

    We loved having you and are glad you enjoyed Patio Flat and the Gardens! And you have made some great recommendations for super places to visit - thank you. Property Owner

  • "The Patio Flat was light,warm with large and and airy rooms and a well equipped kitchen."

    The bed was comfortable.The only criticism was the settee, as we found it rather low and not that comfortable. The patio area outside the living room/bedroom,was always sunny and pleasant enough to sit out most days. The garden was spacious,with a super orchard with a variety of apple trees. It was a peaceful place to stay if you want to be “ away from it all”. Be sure to stock up before you go ,as the nearest supermarkets are a twenty minute drive to Bodmin. It has a variety of supermarkets. Although we may not return ,we would definitely recommend The Patio Flat. Our only criticism that the settee was rather low for us,and not that comfortable. The bed was comfortable though. The garden was amazing and we enjoyed the variety of apple trees.It was in peaceful surroundings. You need to stock up with food as the nearest shop was a twenty minute drive. Bodmin was our nearest town with a variety of good Supermarkets.

    We're delighted you liked your stay, and particularly that you found Patio Flat light, warm and airy - and do try to cater for true cooks in the kitchen. We have some wonderful apple trees, two of which are thought to be genetically unique trees which we call Densham's Delight (after one of the vicars who lived here - the house is a former rectory - and Warleggan Wassail. One of these trees is recorded in the late 1800s by Quiller Couch as having its own wassailing song. This involved firing over the tree! It is still wonderfully productive. The sofa - no one else has mentioned it being uncomfortable. It is a standard sized sofa and seems delicious to me, but I appreciate that comfort is certainly relative. Hmm. And yes, the nearest shopping centre is Bodmin - we are out on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Property Owner

    Everything was as described and so fabulous for a peaceful break in the countryside. We loved it and so did my wolfhound who enjoyed eating blackberries from the hedgerows, picking up windfall apples to munch on from the garden and racing in and out of the sea at a nearby beach. The rooms were spacious, light and airy and the garden was gorgeous. A special thank you to Geraldine who greeted us when we arrived and was so cheerful and helpful throughout our stay.❤️

    Yes, we loved meeting your wolfhound, and there are still a lot of blackberries and a vast number of munchy apples. Dogs love the beaches - one of the loveliest things is to see a dog enjoying the waves. Happy too that you like Patio Flat with its high ceilings and there is a lot of light. Property Owner

  • "Lovely property so much more room than I could have hoped for."

    Very cool inside which was perfect given the hot weather. Well equipped kitchen. Not a criticism by any means - a full length mirror would be great, bed wasn’t great for me - don’t personally like foot ends and I suffer with my back - so maybe I m not the norm. A summer duvet might be good. Outside light, sun loungers, somewhere to hang the washing if you did put a wash on? Feel you re perhaps not capitalising on beautiful garden.

    We're really pleased you loved the spaciousness. Even after all these years (my family bought the house in 1969) I still find the high ceilings just amazingly wonderful - and the light that pours in, too. The house was built in 1705 and has many stories to tell. We are planning to get a second mirror but we are not planning to change the bed - we have experimented with beds and mattresses and this kingsize one is the most satisfactory so far. We do not want an outside light because this is a dark skies area and the stars are sensational (and lights at night harm wildlife). Please bring a torch. I am not sure how to respond to your comment on the gardens. There are three acres and we try to balance wild areas with carefully tended beds. This is a challenge right now with the drought and we aren't watering. I would like to emphasize to you and all other visitors that you are welcome to walk around and sit in the grounds and we provide a simple picnic set (plates, mugs, cutlery and try) for this purpose. For flower lovers May is probably the best month as there are stacks of camellias and rhodendrons in flower, as well as bluebells and other spring flowers. Daffodils are sensational earlier in the year. Property Owner

    However if you want to drop out of this world for a few days and enjoy peaceful, beautiful surroundings The Patio Flat is idyllic. The village sign says “twinned with Narnia” and truly there is a wee touch of the magical about the house and enormous wild garden. The flat is very spacious and has been furnished and equipped to the highest standard. If you are blessed with good weather you may find it hard to drag yourself away from the south facing patio which is a suntrap. However it is excellently placed for touring Central Cornwall with both north and south coast within easy reach for day trips. The narrow lanes are a bit of a challenge but it has improved my reversing! Geraldine the caretaker was always quick to respond and fix the odd query. A holiday home that is truly dog friendly with moor and woodland walks from the front door.

    What wonderful words! So glad you find the place "magical" and love the large garden. We really do encourage visitors to explore and enjoy. And yes, we are placed between the South and North Coasts so the only dilemma is to choose a sweet little fishing village or the drama of wild cliffs and waves. There are many good local walks as well, down into the woods or up onto wild moors. Property Owner

    So peaceful. Patio flat very spacious. Dog loved sitting looking out through the French doors being nosey. On a personal note, a wider bed would be lovely for better comfort. And maybe a pouffe to rest your feet on at night maybe? The patio chairs either need replacing or repainting with hammerite as getting very rusty which could be difficult to remove from clothes. Beware that the driveway has some potholes and manovering is tight for parking a large vehicle ( ours was an Audi A6 avant). All in all though a great location for lots of fabulous walks and we loved the week here, so we are likely to visit again. The locals also were very chatty & welcoming!

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It is super to know that you love Patio Flat, and that your dog was happy! We are especially glad you enjoyed walking - we are located in an area of outstanding natural beauty and it is good when visitors make the most of it. The bed is a king size. The patio chairs are only two years ago and it is a pity they are getting rusty already. We have new cushions as you must have noticed to allow people to sit on them safely but yes, they will need to be replaced soon despite their beauty. The driveway was created in Victorian times and curves up to the house in a beautiful arc. It is planted to vast Cornish red rhododendrons, some of the very first in Britain, and so it cannot be widened. Horses and carriage had to manage the turn then, and we do find that everyone in our modern times does make it! We look forward to greeting you again. Property Owner

About the location


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.
