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

Tucked away this little cluster of imaginatively converted stone barns. Tawnawood is a spacious two-bedroom property that sleeps 6. There is a large sitting room with feature wood burner within a slate hearth fireplace. The extensive kitchen is fully fitted and has a dishwasher, large dining table and hand-made seating benches. The staircase has handmade spindles and banisters and both bedrooms have vaulted ceilings. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed and the second bedroom twin beds. There is a double sofa bed in the living room and the barn has a large family bathroom. Cobble is a one bedroom cottage with an open plan living/dining room/kitchen. The barn has unique features such as vaulted ceilings with exposed beams. In addition to the bedroom, the living area has a double sofa bed. Nuthatch is a one bedroom cottage with an open plan living room and kitchen. It has unique features such as vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, and a host of quirky wooden handmade features makes this a truly unique barn. The barn enjoys a private enclosed patio, offering fabulous valley views. All the cottages have internal hand-made doors, beautifully crafted handles, all wood sourced from the property’s own woodlands.
The cottages are positioned just beyond the owners’ home and surrounded by 20 acres of peaceful private woodland and fields and are accessed via a ½ mile driveway up through the woods. Pheasants, hawks and buzzards may sometimes accompany your drive up through the woods and in the spring a carpet of bluebells cover the ancient woodland. The barns enjoy a delightful position overlooking the Glynn Valley and Lanhydrock Estate, and the barns and the immediate surrounding area were chosen as a film set for Ella’s journey, due to be screened in 2018. The countryside is undulating and lightly wooded and thought by some to be the most beautiful in the county. The situation is as idyllic as it is convenient, being central to everywhere in Cornwall, accessible to local amenities and out of the county without miles of winding lanes, but just distant enough from the outside world to be a quiet rural retreat.
These three stone barns are dated mid 1700’s and have been lovingly converted using elm and oak from the surrounding woods, and offer a rustic quirky and charming interior. Each barn is unique and is full of interesting architectural features making the interiors appealing and offer a lovely warm welcoming ambience. Surrounded by pleasantly landscaped gardens and wonderful valley views from their own patios, they are ideal for couples looking for a perfect hideaway and for families seeking a secluded spot away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Yet, just a 3-minute drive will take you to the A30 making exploring the whole of Cornwall very accessible. A 10-minute walk down the drive and along a country lane will take you to Cardinham Woods, with its café, cycle trails and woodland walks, with stunning view points along the way. The woods are extremely popular with people of all ages and abilities, whether you enjoy a leisurely stroll or bike ride with your children; or for the more energetic a long hike, or for the hardy mountain biker the 12k Bodmin Beast Cycle Trail!
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 and cycling in the surrounding area, and the Longdowns bridle way runs past the barns. Restormel Castle and Lostwithiel are both 4 miles away, and 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 and riding is available locally. Wadebridge and Camel Trai...

    Had a fabulous time here. 6 of us altogether and our dog lenny. It's an amazing place to stay. David and Christel the owners are very friendly and kind. Clean and welcoming with mod cons and a rustic charm. Can't wait to go back. So peaceful and relaxing..really quiet and private..a little piece of heaven 😊😊😊😊😊

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; It was an absolute delight having you all. It was so nice to hear all your laughter from the paddocks when you were playing ball games. Glad the kids enjoyed the games room, which will in due course receive some improvements. You were lucky to see three deer on our driveway. Look forward to welcoming you all again in the future. You are most welcome.

    Great little find, at the top of a very steep hill, in cardinam woods. Beautiful cottage, very comfortable and nice that the owners are on site in case of issues. Would definitely stay again.
