The property

The Retreat, a beautifully-furnished single-storey cottage, on the edge of Cardinham woods, the perfect go-to Cornish destination.

Nestled in the heart of Cornwall, near Bodmin Moors, making it the best location for north and south coastal beaches and tourist attractions.

Boasting stunning countryside views, a woodburning stove and spacious open-plan interior, The View welcomes two guests to experience the ultimate romantic getaway in Cornwall.

After unloading in the off-road parking area, cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and kick back in front of a roaring woodburning stove, ready to enjoy some light entertainment on the Smart TV as your other half rustles up a tasty feast in the well-equipped kitchen; settle down at the intimate dining table and tuck in, toasting to a wonderful getaway with your loved one over a bottle of bubbly.

If you prefer to dine alfresco, venture out onto your very own private patio where you can enjoy a feast and admire your beautiful surroundings; for an added touch of decadence take a relaxing soak in the bubbling hot tub and relax as the stars appear overhead.

When the evening draws to a close, retreat to a spacious shower room to freshen up ahead of clambering into a sumptuous king-size bed to catch your sleep.

If you can tear yourself away from this fantastic dwelling, begin your day in the centre of Bodmin where you can tour the eighteenth-century Bodmin Jail and Bodmin Town Museum, all before indulging in dinner and drinks at one of several pubs, restaurants and bars on offer here.

Nature lovers may appreciate a day spent in Forestry England’s Cardinham Woods whereas animal enthusiasts are guaranteed to love Alpaca Trekking at Moor View Alpacas; embark on a range of walking, hiking or cycling trails that can be discovered in this lovely part of Cornwall.

However you choose to while away the days here in Cornwall, do it from the stunning home-from-home of The Retreat.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Lostwithiel 6 miles; St. Austell 13 miles; Padstow 16 miles; Newquay 21 miles.

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. Also within easy reach and ideal for a fun-filled day out, guests can visit Lanhydrock House, the small town of Fowey and Charlestown with its Tall Ships, The Eden Project and Lostwithiel. There is a good choice of country pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area.
