With over 650 acres of forest to explore there are plenty of walking and cycling trails, including the renowned ’Bodmin Beast’ trail for the more adventurous mountain biker. For those who like a gentle stroll, you can head to the café located approximately 40 minutes away.
The Goat House has been renovated to a good standard featuring a Smart TV, Blu-ray player, USB charging ports, superfast broadband and unlimited free Wi-Fi. The modern kitchen has gorgeous solid oak worktops, a butler sink, plenty of storage space, a fridge, electric oven and microwave. The attractive bedroom has a double bed with a stunning handmade headboard with integrated lighting, an antique oak wardrobe, leather framed mirror and a heated towel rail.
With the stable door open you can hear the birds sing and babbling stream nearby. Keep a lookout for wildlife including deer, foxes, rabbits, owls and kestrels. Wagtails, kingfishers and jays are also a common sight. You may also like to take a walk around the owner’s 5-acre garden and lake, by prior arrangement, and enjoy the beautiful scenery whilst enjoying a lovely glass of wine.
The cottage (and the owner’s main house) have their very own spring, regularly tested by Cornwall Council, supplying The Goat House with tasty, fresh water. A welcome Cornish cream tea is also provided on arrival. Beach 10 miles. Shop and pub 6 miles, restaurant 4 miles.

    We enjoyed the Goat House for its quiet area and no traffic nearby at all. The owner was very welcoming, made sure we had everything and the kitchen was well equipped and TV had satellite. There isn’t any cell service but WiFi was reliable. We were back each night before dark as it’s remote.

    Lovely cottage that has been very cleverly designed to fit a lot in to a small space. Beautiful location by Cardinham forest.

    Very nice place, situated in woodland area, it is a bit tricky to get to if you have a large vehicle, narrow single track lane. Very nice owner who makes you feel welcome. Great for walkers.

    Our stay at The Goat House was superb! It is set in the most gorgeous woodland and you feel a million miles from real life but in reality Bodmin is down the road with everything you could need. The Goat House is equipped with all the main essentials and host Polly and family are very friendly and nearby should you require anything. We look forward to returning to The Goat House for another stay.
