Bodmin, Cornwall, England
¼ mile from the centre of Blisland is a beautiful place described by Country Life as ‘near perfect’. A lovely listed 17th cent. manor house (the owners’ home, used in the making of films) and, in its grounds, along barn converted into three cottages called Tom, **** and Harry. The cottages share lawns (tables/chairs, barbecue for each cottage) on three sides - one walled, one large with granite-pillared swing and trees. Beyond them, park-like field with massive plane tree slopes to stream (tiddlers) with island. In all, 30 acres (sheep, cattle) for exploring: woods with unusual trees, remains of a Victorian water garden, grotto and Celtic crosses (medieval pilgrims en route to Falmouth, ship and Santiago de Compostela stopped here). Masses of space. Barn available for parties and weddings - ask us for details. One-hundred yard drive leads... Read more

We made a great choice in selecting “Tom” at Lavethan House for our one week visit to Cornwall. Firstly Blisland is perfectly located, being pretty well equidistant between the North and the South coasts, so whether one visits Heligan, Padstow, Fowey, St Ives etc; all are within reasonable distance from home base. Lavethan is a beautiful house – very old apparently mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The house is set in exquisite gardens maintained by Chris and Catherine, surrounded by magnificent oaks, All this overlooks a wooded valley. Absolute timeless arcadian beauty. The cottages, Tom, Dick and Harry, formerly stables are nearby the house and are part of all this beauty. There were four of us, two couples, staying in “Tom”. On the upper level is one very large double bedroom and a smaller twin room, both sharing a bathroom. The beds are comfortable, with good quality linen and plenty of thick towels etc. The other level comprises a very workable and fully equipped kitchen...
