Formerly the schoolmasters’ residence, the delightful and spacious Headmaster’s Cottage dates back to the 1800s. The Cornish Delabole slate floors complement the leather sofas, oak furniture, 400-thread count designer bedding, goose down duvets, choice of pillows, cosy dressing gowns and fluffy, white, 100% Egyptian cotton towels, so as to make this the perfect hideaway. With two bedrooms each with a kingsize bed, yet a maximum guest occupancy of 2, it is ideal for couples, couples who cannot sleep in the same bed, but whom both deserve the luxury of a king size bed, two friends travelling together, or an adult and a 16+ years old child.
The beautiful south-facing gardens have level lawns and an established spring wild flower meadow, attracting an abundance of wildlife. Every window benefits from fabulous, uninterrupted, long distance countryside views across; Kit Hill, Caradon Hill, Sharptor, Notter Tor and Bodmin Moor. Walk or cycle directly from the property along the many public footpaths and quiet lanes in order to immerse yourself in the picturesque serenity.
