Description

Situated on pheasant shooting estate with Clay pigeon shooting available by arrangement is this detached property, a converted 200-year-old barn.

This very spacious, detached property, converted from a 200-year-old barn, with grain silos 8 yards (toddlers beware!) occupies a peaceful setting on the owners’ 850-acre working arable farm and pheasant shooting estate. Very attractively furnished and well equipped, it boasts eight en-suite bedrooms (all with colour TVs), two sitting-rooms, a games room with open fire and pool table, and its own garden with children’s play area – making it the ideal choice for three or four families wishing to holiday together. Clay pigeon shooting is available by arrangement, with fishing on site (permit required). The farm is centrally located in the beautiful Camel Valley – a haven for nature lovers and fishermen, cyclists and riding enthusiasts, close to the wild expanse of Bodmin Moor.
An ideal base from which to tour, The Shooting Lodge is convenient for the North and South Heritage Coasts of Cornwall, where to the north, the picturesque fishing villages of Port Isaac and Boscastle, and the old port of Padstow are within easy reach. To the south is the harbour town of Fowey, and the charming villages of Looe and Polperro, each with narrow, winding streets full of fisherman’s cottages and intriguing tales concerning their smuggling past. Partly isolated from the rest of the country, until the railway crossed the River Tamar in the 1860s, this region has retained a wealth of antiquities. For historic days out, St Breock Downs Monolith and the Nine Maidens, Pencarrow House and Restormel Castle, and Lanhydrock (NT), with its 450-acre grounds, are nearby. Whilst a little further afield, scholars of myths and legends will find enigmatic Tintagel Castle – said to be the birthplace of King Arthur, a mystical delight. Ancient Wadebridge (4 miles) offers a sports centre, swimming-pool and tennis. Shop 1½ miles, pub 3 miles.

Large hall with slate floor. Spacious, comfortable living room with open fire and dining area. Additional sitting room with open fire. Large, well-equipped fitted kitchen with two electric cookers. Utility. Separate toilet. First floor: Three double bedrooms, each with en-suite shower room and toilet. Three twin bedrooms, and two further double bedrooms (one with extra double bed, for +2), each with en-suite bathroom, shower attachment and toilet. All bedrooms with TVs.

    Wonderful lodge with plenty of space for everyone. Our party consisted of 10 and there was ample room for adults and children and grandchildren. Lighting was a bit of an issue as there were only main lights in a couple of rooms, the rest being lit with just lamps. However the facilities were great, grounds to walk in and a small play area with swings for the children. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.

    We were at the Shooting Lodge for a 70th birthday celebration and family re-union and the house swallowed 18 adults and associated children with relative comfort. It was a delight to meet Lady P and her son Roderick and partner Nicola could not have been more helpful - including cooking a family feast for us on the second night of our stay. There were some negatives worth a mention though - these being a cot not really fit for purpose for a bouncy 14 month old, tired play equipment, and probably most important for some - the almost complete absence of wi-fi. The cooking range was also a bit temperamental!

    A group of 16 stayed at the Shooting Lodge for half term in May. The house is set on a farm and the surroundings were very peaceful. There is plenty of parking and tables and benches to sit outside (we were lucky to have fabulous weather so ate breakfast and dinner out there most days). The kitchen is very well equipped with all sorts of gadgets and plenty of crockery, glasses, cutlery etc. The urn for hot drinks was a bonus too! There was a huge dining table for us all to sit round with settees to retire to after dinner (some more comfy than others!). Off this room was both a drying and utility room which were both very spacious and useful for storage. There was a downstairs toilet which was handy and a snooker room if you fancied a game. All the bedrooms were spacious, clean, nicely decorated and well equipped. There was a rather tired and dusty games room in an outbuilding with table tennis, football and darts but the children enjoyed playing in there and visiting the horse! There was wifi which worked well downstairs but not in all the bedrooms. However, it was lovely that the children spent more time playing outside than with their gadgets! The Shooting Lodge is well located for visiting Cornwall or Devon, with easy access across both counties and it was never too far to a beach or coastal walk. We enjoyed a fabulous meal at St Mabyn's Inn (about a mile way) and would highly recommend a visit. Although we were a large group the house was easily spacious enough to accommodate us all without feeling on top of each other. We all loved the house but some comfy chairs etc. for sitting outside enjoying the sun would have been welcomed and the children's play equipment (particularly the monkey bars) were in need of a bit of attention. That said, we had a glorious week and would not hesitate to stay there again.
