Sunday change over
Occupying one end of a large converted threshing barn, this great one bedroom property is an ideal place for couples and those with very young families to escape and enjoy the peace and quiet of this rural location on the edge of Bodmin Moor. A brilliant place for walkers, yet within easy reach of both Cornish coasts. The wilds of Dartmoor are not too far away either! Really dog friendly, with an enclosed garden.

Property Details

Acorns is a really comfortable 2 storey 1 bedroom cottage, occupying one end of the Owners' superb converted granite barn which used to be an old threshing barn. Located in a small hamlet of about 10 houses and converted barns, this peaceful rural location is a wonderful place to escape to at any time of year. The wilds of Bodmin Moor with endless walking opportunities are nearby and the spectacular scenery of both Cornish coasts and Dartmoor are all within easy reach. The area abounds with country pubs - most of which have roaring fires in the winter months, and the towns of Launceston and Liskeard are just short distance away. Acorns is just 2 miles from Minions, Cornwall's highest village, the famous Cheesewring, a dramatic outcrop of granite slabs and The Hurlers, a set of three bronze age stone circles.The area is rich in mining history with many chimneys, engine houses and stone railway tracks still visible - a reminder of Cornwall's long mining tradition.

Acorns is located in 3 designated areas - Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Area of Great Scientific Value and Area of Great Historic Value. So something for everyone! The oak tree shown in the photos is the "famous" Darley Oak which is over 1000 years old. This is a great location to visit if you are a keen walker. There are endless opportunities to explore the local area. A great dog friendly cottage too! The barn itself is set out in reverse style with a kitchen / living room on the first floor and access into the enclosed garden. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with external access, a large bathroom with bath and separate shower.

Property Location


Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall's Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall's highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwalls stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families.The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Steins empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have a number of properties nearby - Lanhydrock House, Trerice, Cotehele and Antony (used for Disney's Alice in Wonderland), Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book. T

The market town of Launceston is the capital of Cornwall and well worth a visit to see the church of St Mary Magdelene, with granite carvings, unusual among Cornish churches.

The town of Liskeard is at the head of the Looe Valley and is approximately 12 miles east of Bodmin. Liskeard is one of the few remaining towns in Cornwall to still have a weekly livestock market. Market day is Tuesday. It serves a number of small surrounding villages and is the gateway to Bodmin Moor. On Bodmin Moor, Dozmary pond is thought to contain Arthur's Excalibur, and Merlin is thought to be still found walking under Tintagel Island.

Camelford is a great centre for touring, walking, fishing, swimming or surfing holidays. The town is steeped in history and has excellent shopping and sporting facilities.

Port Isaac is the location of the televisions series Poldark and more recently Doc Martin, as well as being a gorgeous working fishing village.

A really nice cottage, very well equipped and nicely set up. The enclosed garden was excellent for our 2 Jack Russell escape experts, kept them in no problem. The owners of the property were very nice and welcoming with scones and jam for our arrival (earlier than expected). Very well placed for visiting the local attractions. Only niggle and just a small one, the sofa, although practical for the space it was a little uncomfortable. But would definitely recommend this cottage and would return for another visit.

Thank you for your review of "Acorns". I am so sorry that the standard of cleanliness was an issue. I always try to make sure that Acorns is as clean as possible for my guests. As I live in the adjacent house I would have happily come in to rectify the problem had you let me know.

Location that is relaxing, peaceful and a good base to explore nearby attractions
Reviewed on 09/06/2018

Stayed at Acorns 5nights in May 2018. Lovely place for two, more would be a squeeze. Location is easy to get to although a few single tracks to negotiate on the way. It is worth enduring these Cornish roads to end up in a location that is relaxing, peaceful and a good base to explore nearby attractions - Minions (Cornwalls highest village), Hurlers stone circles, King Donierts Stone, Goliath Falls, Bodmin Moor, Jamaica inn. During my stay I also easily visited the West coast, Falmouth, Eden project and Secret Garden. Proprietor Kim gave a warm welcome upon arrival and if needed will provide advice regarding places to visit etc. There are walking maps in the property and plenty of tourist attraction leaflets if needed. No problems with WiFi experienced. Being in a rural location I saw swifts, bats and a lesser spotted woodpecker in the garden. Kim has resident chickens and geese. I didn't take a dog but the venue is very dog friendly with large garden/area for run around and Kim will dog sit for a small fee if those with a dog(s) would like a day out dog free. I have no qualms recommending Acorns and it is a pleasure to do so.

Reviewed on 24/04/2018

Acorns was a lovely little cottage with a small enclosed garden which was perfect for our dog. We were welcomed by the host, Kim, and shown around and she had left us a home made cream tea, which was SO needed after our long journey and had left some fresh eggs too. The cottage is upside down (bedroom downstairs) and has a cosy feel. The bathroom is big, with a bath and shower, the bedroom was comfortable and the living space was pleasant. We had an issue that they ran out of oil so there was 24hrs of no heating or hot water (other than the electric shower), which was a shame. The other slight bother was that the cooking pots/pans, etc are well used and not plentiful but there were more than enough plates, cups, etc, and it was enough for us (adult, child, pup) for our stay. There aren't walks from the property but it is well placed in this part of Cornwall and we very much enjoyed our stay.

Reviewed on 05/02/2018

The most noteworthy point to make is how well the owner has managed to balance customer service i.e. being available and accessible whilst respecting ones privacy and, well, quite frankly, leaving you in peace. When you're renting holiday accommodation (not B&B) its a hard thing to get right. The location is lovely; the garden is private and 'safe' if you are a dog owner and the cottage is spacious, light and airy. Thanks Kim

A very nice week. Very quiet and tranquil. The local pub servers very good food however, the walk up to it is danergous.

Lovely welcome from Kim, there was a fresh cream tea and and pint of milk waiting for us upon arrival which was great. The cottage was really nice, it was comfortable and the decor felt really homely. Pretty much everything you could need was thought of, it was nice having brochures and maps to hand so we could plan our week. I loved the bath and slept really well in the bed. If i had one negative, it would be that the outside door in the bedroom could use some darker curtains on it. The cottage is located in such a tranquil place, and being so central in Cornwall meant we could visit locations on both coasts. We had a great week!

Garden is perfect for dogs and Albert enjoyed the dog toys and trying out the feeding plate. Kim is a welcoming host, scones on arrival and only a text away! Only improvement we could see is to have softer towels, but that's minor and we had brought our own anyway so didn't affect us. Well worth a visit

Another lovely holiday in Cornwall
Reviewed on 27/09/2016

We had a lovely week (starting Sunday 18th September) staying at The Threshing Barn at Darley (roughly half way between Launceston and Liskeard) We arrived Sunday afternoon to find a cream tea waiting for us in our cottage, but no ordinary cream tea it was a proper one - homemade scones and homemade golden raspberry jam (made from the golden raspberries in Kim and John's garden) We always take our lively little mini schnauzer "Wookie" on holiday with us and never really trust the descriptions of the gardens when they say "enclosed garden" but this one was and it was great to be able to leave the door from our open plan kitchen/living room to the garden open and not have to worry. The Threshing Barn is attached to their main farmhouse but you are completely private and don't feel like you are being watched. Ample parking. In a very central spot ready to explore Cornwall (or Devon) in all directions. It's a cosy place with everything you could want including a washing machine tucked away in a large cupboard in the good sized bathroom, the cottage has lovely thick walls and one night was particularly stormy and we didn't hear a thing.

We were looking for somewhere in Cornwall, handy for the Eden Project and the coastal villages, where we could relax, and which would take the dog. Acorns appeared to fit the bill perfectly. Booking was easy, with lots of information, the cottage, on the end of the main building, with a small private garden, exceeded expectations, and the owners could not be more welcoming - cream tea and eggs provided, along with the essentials for tea, coffee and so on. The cottage is in a very rural location, and the wifi erratic, but that's Cornwall. We would highly recommend Acorns.

Excellent holiday home. Stayed with my husband and my dog and it was just perfect! Even had a little enclosed garden to relax and watch the world go by. The only reason I haven't given it the full 100% is that the shower very occasionally had its moments where it would switch off after a little while but they had a beautiful roll top bath so to be honest it was never a major issue!!! Kim is such a welcoming owner who provided us with homemade scones with cream and homemade jam on arrival, they had left us a pint of milk etc all of these touches made us feel so welcome that we can't wait to go back next year! A home from home, I really cannot are it highly enough.

Disappointing for dog walking.
Reviewed on 16/09/2015

When we arrived we were made to feel welcome by the owners of the accomadation, they are very nice people. The main purpose of our holiday was to park our vehicle up and to walk with our dog from the location. On the first day of arrival I was advised by the local landowner which surrounds the property where we stayed,that I was not allowed to walk in the surrounding fields as they did not permit this. It meant that every time I wanted to walk the dog the car was needed for a journey of a few miles before you reached the moorland as we were not positioned as we expected within the Bodmin moor area but outside.The main roads outside had no pavements so therefore it was not ideal. To be fair if you do not want local walking with a dog it might be suitable.

Acorns is a lovely, dog-friendly cottage that provided the ideal base from which to explore Cornwall. Extremely beautiful surroundings and a small yard for the dogs to stretch their legs in the morning ahead of long walks. We would definitely return to Acorns.

Perfect Location
Reviewed on 07/06/2015

Acorns is a lovely little cottage located within a 5 minute drive of Bodmin Moor. The location is idyllic with some beautiful views of Corninsh countryside from the top of the garden. There are some stunning sights to see, all within a short drive although as mentioned before, Bodmin Moor is so close it's a shame not to spend a couple of days exploring a tiny fraction of that alone! I stayed with my partner and our dog (border collie) and we were very comfortable, however, if you have a larger dog and the weather is against you I'd imagine it could get a bit cramped! The owners were great, once we'd been given the keys and walked around the cottage we were left to our own devices and enjoyed our stay in peace. I would recommend asking them about the local area as they gave us some good advice with regards to walks etc. Overall I would highly recommend Acorns as a great little get away, it certainly helped us forget about everything else and enabled us to just enjoy a holiday.

A perfect short stay in Acorns
Reviewed on 20/05/2015

We had a great time in Acorns with our two Leonberger. The Cottage is really good sized and offers all the things you need during a holiday. The little welcome present with fresh scones and cream tea was perfect after a long drive. The owners are the perfect host and we definitely would come back for another stay. To experience the north and south coast of Cornwall, it is the perfect location. Thanks for everything !!!

A short relaxing break at Accorns
Reviewed on 12/10/2014

We had such a lovely time at Accorns, the location was central to both coasts of Cornwall.We really liked the idea of the enclosed garden so we didn't have to worry about the dogs when we let them out. We had everything we needed in the cottage plus extra. We were welcomed with fresh homemade scones, clotted cream and jam, plus milk in the fridge and fresh eggs, what more could you ask for.

Acorns
Reviewed on 13/08/2014

Our 1st holiday away with our Dogs and we really enjoyed it. Acorns owners gave us a warm welcome and were really helpful through out our stay. They cottage had its own secure garden which meant my dogs were safe. It had everything we needed and a few extras like fresh eggs, cream and fresh scones. It was located a short drive away from lovely walks.

Acorns
Reviewed on 22/07/2014

We loved our stay at the Acorns and the location of the property is perfect for touring further east, west, north or south. However, the cleanliness of the property was poor - if we owned a rental property we would stay for at least a day and a night to experience it from a client's perspective - after all, who actually gets into their shower and closes the door in order to clean it? If one did however, one would get a better picture.

Cottage was lovely and we couldn't have asked for a better location. We were very impressed with the central location as everything we wanted to see was within about an hours drive. We had a great host and Nala the dog was just as welcome. We can't wait to visit Acorns again. Thank you Kim, see you again soon love Jo, Dave and Nala
