Description:

 

This elegant and very comfortable, detached 17th-century house has its own garden with pond, patio and fig tree, and is just 5 miles from the sea. Once the farmhouse to the adjacent working farm, it offers spacious and beautifully furnished family accommodation in an area of Cornwall with an outstanding variety of attractions.The market town of Callington (5 miles) nestles between the Tamar and Lynher rivers. Its 15th-century chapel enclosed Dupath Well, with a reputation for curing whooping cough. Kit Hill is to the north, with nature trails and spectacular views of the rugged granite moorland of Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor. East and West Looe (10 miles) are joined by a seven-arched bridge. This is a visitor resort of character, with several sandy beaches, a bustling quayside, and the unique Banjo Pier. It is also a shark angling center with two museums, a monkey sanctuary and a mechanical music collection at St Keyne. Liskeard is also a busy market town, once linked by canal to Looe. Its church, Guildhall and Stuart House are of particular interest, as are its 16th-century Pipe Well and Dobwalls Family Adventure Park. There is a wonderfully scenic rail link to Looe from Liskeard. To the south, the Rame peninsula is often referred to as the forgotten corner of Cornwall - a haven for those who enjoy the slower pace of life in the countryside, with walking, bird-watching, fishing or just lazing around. Plymouth (9 miles) has big city attractions, theatres, cinemas and a wealth of history. There are regular ferries to Ireland and northern Spain from Plymouth.The farmhouse is well placed for sailing, with the Tamar estuary a short drive. There are local pubs and shops within a mile, and one of England's finest golf courses at St Mellion (4 miles).
