Blisland Cottage

Full Description


The Cottage
Within the cottage there are 2 no log burning stoves, one in the sitting room and a second in the dining room to keep you toasty when the weather outside is cold, or if you are just back from a walk and want to settle down with a book, or the television. There is also an Aga in the kitchen which is great for resting against with a cup of tea or coffee (or of course a glass of wine) whilst supper is cooking. To the rear is a large fenced (6ft) lawned area ideal for playing football, or exercising the dog. The remainder of the garden is fenced and gated.
There are three bedrooms which allow six guest to stay in comfort, along with a sitting room, dining room, conservatory, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, bath and shower rooms as well as a lavatory on the ground floor. Outside there is a double garage, two parking areas (for several cars) and a log store. Wireless Broadband is available.
The Surroundings
Blisland is one of the most sought after villages in the county. At its heart is the village green which is possibly the largest in Cornwall. Overlooking the green is the Blisland Inn which is a former CAMRA pub of the year and the parish church of St Protus and St Hyacinth (originally Norman) about which Sir John Betjeman said “As a restoration – even improvement – of a medieval church, this can hardly be bettered”, There is also a shop and post office which offers a super range of provisions as well as the internet cafe. A number of substantial granite houses and pretty cottages overlook the green.There is a village website www.blisland.com
The expansive areas of Bodmin Moor are a short distance above the village, and in contrast below the village to the west is the beautiful Camel Valley with the trail which will take you along the former line of the steam railway to Padstow (bikes are available to hire in Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow). The Forestry Commission have extensive woodland at Cardinham where there are both marked paths, play areas and mountain bike course as well as a very good cafe.
