Tawnawood is perfect for cyclists and walkers looking to explore the Cornish countryside and coastline.

Equidistant from both of Cornwall’s spectacular coastlines and nestling in delightful woodland, these thoughtfully converted barns are set in sunny, pleasantly landscaped gardens, each with its own patio. Retaining all the character and charm of original structural features, including exposed beams and stone walls, they have been furnished in keeping with their rustic simplicity. Tawnawood has a first floor landing and a door to a balcony with wonderful valley views. Peacefully positioned on a private drive beyond the owner’s home, and accessed by a narrow country lane, they enjoy fine views across the valley towards National Trust Lanhydrock House and its formal gardens. Lanhydrock House is 1¼ miles away and features several cycle trails, including a gentle trail for families throughout its grounds and into bluebell woods. There is also cycle hire, free parking and a café. Beaches of both the north and south coasts are about 15 miles away, some popular and offering fishing, sailing and surfing, others small and secluded; the coastal path is a continuous drama of cliff and sea and sky. There is excellent walking in the surrounding area and cycling in Cardinham Woods with dedicated, scenic cycle trails for those wanting more of a challenge, and an excellent café for refreshments. Restormel Castle and Lostwithiel, both 4 miles. Bodmin, 3 miles, has shops, cycle hire, swimming-pool, sports centre, inns, restaurants and golf. Bodmin Steam Railway can be heard in the distance within the valley. Riding locally. Wadebridge and Camel Trail cycle hire 7 miles. Padstow 12 miles, Fowey 10 miles and the Eden Project 8 miles. Shops 3 miles.

    Overall it was a good place for what we needed but having to pay for the electricity we used and leaving the money on the table was a poor touch, for a house that sleeps 6 people 1 parking space was not enough, couldn't get from the car to the house without walking through mud. Would consider staying again but wouldn't recommend it

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; In reply to the comments I am a little perplexed at the issue of the car parking. There are approximately five to six spaces for parking for the three cottages, but as the only car or cars were from the cottage in question, it means the occupants had a pick of anywhere to park and could park right next to the entrance and the lit cobbled path to the cottage. There was absolutely no necessity to park on grass which after the heavy winter rains can become slippery. The electricity is clearly marked as chargeable in the details and applicable in winter when margins are slim. There is a log burner which for £4 for a large wheelbarrow will keep the ground floor area cosy for at least a couple of days at a time. The only downside is that one has to light and feed the fire. In summer of course this is not an issue although it is still nice to have a cosy fire in some cool evenings.

    Lovely location but not very clean and for what you paid having to pay for your own electricity I felt was a bit unreasonable

    A charming cottage within a garden-setting that ticked all the boxes; visiting Gold Finches, Swallows and Blackbirds provided the perfect alarm call. Have already recommended Tawnawood and hope to return later this year.

    Lovely cottage in a lovely setting. However, the location is not very convenient if you have not got a car, and the steep drive up to the house was more than we were initially expecting, though we got used to that. The single beds in the second bed room are not great if you intend to put adults in them - fine for children though. There was an odd smell in the main bedroom. These quibbles aside, we had a lovely time and we would go again.
