Beautiful rural views, a superbly presented property that is just perfect for a romantic getaway, dog friendly with amazing walks from your doorstep, easy access to the A30, so no long queues trying to get into Cornwall. Poldhu Stables will be just the holiday you need to recharge the batteries.

Property Details

A beautiful cottage, lovingly created by the owners, which exudes charm. Cornish granite walls, vaulted ceilings, a cosy wood-burning stove which will provide warmth on a winter evening, there is solid oak furniture, superb views across rolling farm and moorland, Arabian horses milling around in the paddocks close by, a small garden with decked seating area, all add to the luxury finish. A sense of comedy lurks in the background with a Cornish weather station and some welcoming stone hares. Poldhu Stables will deliver the perfect romantic holiday in the wilds of Cornwall.

Fantastic access to the A30 which is out of earshot but means Exeter is less than an hour away, stunning beaches on the north coast are within easy reaches such as Trebarwith Strand, Crackington Haven and Widemouth Bay as are the picturesque fishing villages of Port Isaac and Padstow. Further south is well worth exploring, Looe, Fowey and Mevagissey to name but a few, with the world-famous Eden Project, is an experience and since the stables are dog-friendly a walk or two over Bodmin Moor where you can experience the views from the highest parts of Cornwall, Rough Tor and Brown Willy, trek around Dozmary Pool where King Arthur received Excalibur from the Lady of the Lake, allegedly. This really is a superb spot to engage with nature from a stunning cottage.

Property Location


Poldhu Stables is in a stunning, extremely convenient location, very easily reached by car, only a few minutes south of the A30, just west of Launceston, just 45 minutes from the M5 at Exeter. The scenery is quite breathtaking and you will be absorbed as soon as you have left the main road into the beauty of this edge of moorland location. A really central location in Cornwall, you have so much to see within easy reach. The brilliant beaches at Trebarwith Strand, Crackington Haven and Widemouth Bay are just over 30 minutes drive to the north and the quintessential Cornish harbour town of Looe is 40 minutes to the south. The wilds of Bodmin Moor are on your doorstep and Dartmoor is around 45 minutes away should you wish to cross the border.

The beautiful historic market town of Launceston lies just across the border from Devon and was once the capital of Cornwall. With rolling countryside, castle ruins and plenty of shops and nearby attractions, it’s a fantastic base for exploring North Cornwall. Launceston was the ancient capital of Cornwall and has been a market town since the time of the Normans. It still possesses a medieval south gate and castle ruins. Due to its position just a mile west of the River Tamar, it borders Devon and is often referred to as the 'gateway to Cornwall'. The church of St Mary Magdelene is well worth a visit for its unusual granite carvings and a ghoul is said to haunt the churchyard. There are many strange tales around this area of Cornwall. Apparently south of Launceston at Hingston Down there is buried treasure, the ghost of Dorothy Dingley has been seen many times in Botathon, and in nearby Yeolmbridge the Wild Hunt may be seen by those crossing the bridge. But those who see this twice will not live to tell the tale!

Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall’s Areas of Outstanding 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 Cornwall’s stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge 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 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 have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have three properties nearby: Cothele, Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Morwhellham Quay is also a fascinating place to visit, a "living" museum providing a wonderful day out.

Pro's: Beautiful views from garden. Forest and Moor nearby for dog walking. Clean. Con's: Very bumpy 200m downhill driveway to cottage. The cottage is quite close to the 8 horse stables, as the name suggests. That was no problem, but the stable muck heap is 10m from the cottage and it's garden, hence there was quite a strong smell of urine soaked straw around the property. Also flies were a nuisance inside the cottage when garden doors left open. The description of the kitchen was correct, but it was difficult to prepare anything more that a basic meal. Owner has 5 dogs which could be noisy when left at home alone.

Perfect for a relaxing break
Reviewed on 02/08/2021

We visited Poldhu stables in July 2021 with our two dogs. The property is ideally located very close to the A30 which means that everywhere from Launceston to Truro and the towns North and South coasts were easily accessible. The property was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. The only issue that we found was that our dogs (cocker spaniels) both managed to escape from the 'enclosed garden' and get into the horses field (fortunately the horses were not in the field at the time)

Stunning location, amazing stay!

What a treasure! Lovely little bolt hole in beautiful surroundings. The bed was so comfortable we went home feeling fully rested and relaxed, the little cottage had everything that you needed for a break away and Karen & her dogs were amazing hosts and couldnA?t do enough for for us. Only criticism was that the sofa was a little shallow and with my hubby having long legs he found it hard to get comfy so maybe a footstool could be added, but a small thing as we really enjoyed our stay. Thank You Karen & Nigel for creating something incredibly beautiful

We loved our stay at Poldhu, and Karen could not have done more to ensure we had a lovely time. Perfect for two people, this property is beautifully finished and a lovely place to which to return at the end of a dayA?s hiking.
