The Cottage, Wendron

The Cottage at the former working farm of Bodilly Vean is a semi-detached conversion of an old milking parlour and its adjoining cottage, hence the 3 levels to this beautifully restored property, completed to a high specification for self catering holidays. Only a 3 minute drive or 15 minute walk from the Homestead Woodland Garden and the popular Slice Cafe. It is a 5 minute drive from Poldark Mine - one of the jewels in the crown of The Cornish Mining World Heritage Landscape, where you can explore the labyrinth of tunnels and caverns of 'Wheal Roots' - a 300 year old mine, which was used as the filming location for all the underground scenes in the recent television series of Winston Graham's 'Poldark'.

The Cottage provides an idyllic location for family or friends to enjoy their holiday. If you have more family wishing to join you on holiday 'The Stable' which sleeps 3 is just across the courtyard.

Enter from the gravel parking area into the main hall of the old milking parlour, where there is plenty of space for muddy boots and shoes. To your left is a convenient utility room, which stores the washing machine and sink with drainer.

Next door to your left is a good sized double bedroom, with bedside tables and lamps and a large built in wardrobe with sliding doors.

In front of you is the main spacious shower room with a large mixer shower, toilet and handbasin with mirror and shaver point above along with a heated towel rail.  A Skylight in this room gives plenty of natural light.

To the right of the hall is the main kitchen dining area. This is a well equipped kitchen that has an integrated oven with a good sized warming draw under, freestanding fridge/freezer, integrated dishwasher, electric 4-ring hob, and wonderful vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. The dining area has a good sized table and 6 chairs.

From the kitchen are 4 steps down into the old cottage portion where you will find a good size lounge area, there's a comfortable L shaped sofa plus a chair, wall mounted TV with unit below to house information, books and a DVD player. A modern wood burner in the corner of the lounge makes the colder nights cosy. Another character feature in this room is the ¾ height door to the garden, please mind your head.

Off the lounge is the twin bedroom, another light and airy room with a high ceiling. The twin beds are separated by a table and lamp, while the large wardrobe and a chest of draws should provide you with enough storage.

Between the lounge and twin bedroom is the staircase which leads up to the third bedroom and the bathroom.

The first floor bedroom has a double bed, with bed side shelves and lamps, and a built in cupboard and wardrobe provide the storage. This room has plenty of light with a window looking out over the courtyard and a window opposite looking out over the countryside.

The spacious bathroom has a mixer shower over the bath, a toilet, handbasin with mirror and shaver point above, and a heated towel rail.

The garden area to the front of the property has a picnic bench and 4 plastic garden chairs and a retractable washing line.

Rental includes superfast broadband, electricity, central heating, bedlinen, towels and the first basket of logs for the wood burner. Regret no smoking and no pets.

Property P440 The Stable sleeps 3 and is also at Bodily Vean Farm.
