Property Location


Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30, is home to one of Cornwalls Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwalls 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 Cornwall's 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 old railway route 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 Stein's 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 won awards for their homegrown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have three properties nearby Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell.

North Cornwall is as famous for its rugged coastline as it is for its surfing. You can hire surfboards and equipment from Polzeath, up as far as Bude and Widemouth Bay. Boscastle is the only natural harbour for 20 miles and at low tides and certain weather conditions, you can find a blowhole at the harbour's mouth. Tintagel brings with it legends of King Arthur, and Tintagel Castle's remains can be visited on foot. Nearby, Camelford is rumoured to be the Camelot of legends past, and the finding of 'Arthurs Stone' in 1998 has only fuelled these myths. On Bodmin Moor, Dozmary pond is thought to contain Arthur's Excalibur, and Merlin is still found walking under Tintagel Island. Port Isaac is the location of the televisions series Poldark and, more recently, Doc Martin, as well as being a gorgeous working fishing village.

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 housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book during the First World War. The famous Camel Trail follows the old railway route along traffic-free paths for 18 miles, providing the whole family with a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge and out to Padstow, where you can sample Rick Stein's famous Fish and Chips. 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.

These days Newquay's excellent surfing waters are the town's main industry, whereas it once used to be a major export port for counties mining efforts and a north coast port for pilchard fisheries. Fistral Beach holds many surfing competitions throughout the year. Both the Women's and Men's Gig Championships are held here as a balloon festival and surf and lifesaving events. Newquay Zoo now houses 130 different species in sub-tropical gardens in the centre of the town.

Watergate Bay and The Extreme Academy offers you a 'ski resort on a beach' and a plethora of activities to keep even the most active occupied. The Lappa Valley Steam Railway just outside Newquay offers both the old and young an interesting day out. Newquay Airport has made the north coast one of the easiest places in Cornwall to get to, with regular flights from various locations across the UK. The town also has an Aquarium, a Waterworld and numerous beautiful beaches for the less active. Trerice run by the National Trust, is 3 miles outside of the town is an Elizabethan Manor House and Garden with restricted winter opening times.

Great little hideaway
Reviewed on 25/04/2022

This is a gorgeous little cottage that is just minutes away from major shops but feels like you are on a Country hideaway. It is of a really high standard, definitely will stay again.

Fabulous apartment for a trip away!
Reviewed on 16/09/2021

The apartment was lovely and clean with everything you need for a week away! There is a lovely balcony that gets the sun in the morning and a garden where the sun is in the afternoon! The apartment is located in Bodmin which is very central so is an easy drive to either coast and the Eden project! Only note is the apartment is right at the end of a lane - so if you just want to nip out to a shop or a pub, you will need to drive or get a taxi - we walked into town a few times during the day which took about half an hour and got a taxi back (5 mins) which suited us just fine.

Beautiful cottage
Reviewed on 26/08/2021

We really enjoyed our stay in Gwel An Koos. The cottage is really central in Cornwall which allowed us the freedom to travel to all areas. Bodmin is very close if you need any essentials. You can reach Cardinham Woods via foot from the cottage - which we did on a few occasions. The cottage is beautiful and really fresh and clean. It was warm and we had use of a private garden if we needed.

Lovely place and friendly host
Reviewed on 14/06/2021

We had a lovely stay at Gwel An Koos. The farm is wonderful and such a peaceful location. The children loved feeding the pigs with some fruit the owner kindly left for us. I briefly saw Louise and she was very friendly. Communication was also very speedy. Everything felt new in the accommodation and it was the perfect base for us to explore more of Cornwall.

Quiet and peaceful
Reviewed on 10/06/2021

We booked a last minute getaway and found this little gem. It was set in a dead end lane so very quiet and peaceful. It was centrally positioned for locations in and around the Bodmin area. Accommodation was modern and surprisingly spacious and had all the amenities we needed. We would definite recommend.
