Full description

Carcade Farm is quietly tucked away at the end of a no through road and sits in an unspoilt valley on the edge of Bodmin Moor. The ancient town of Camelford is only 1½ miles away and has a good range of day to day necessities with the A39 main road known as the ‘Atlantic Highway’ dissecting the town and providing a picturesque route south further into Cornwall, or north heading into Devon.

The spectacular North Cornish coastline is about 7 miles away and has a wonderful mixture of sandy surfing beaches, cliff top walks, seaside towns and quaint fishing villages. The towns of Wadebridge and Bude are also extremely accessible and offer a good choice of places to eat, as well as things to see and do. The nearby Bodmin Moor with its granite tors and ever changing scenery offers an array of opportunities to walk, ride or cycle this incredible landscape and it is steeped in mysterious tales of King Arthur, Camelot and Excalibur is said to be buried in the nearby Dozmary Pool. 

The Cathedral city of Truro is an hours drive and has a mainline railway and bus station with service to London. Newquay Airport is a fifty minute drive and has an excellent range of internal scheduled flights. 

Privately set the farm is surrounded by its own land, which has in the past supported the farms livestock enterprise. The current owners ceased farming over five years ago and have since converted three stone and slate barns, two of which are holiday lets and are successfully let though Southwest Cottages. The farm is centred around a substantial four bedroom farmhouse and there is a further single story barn conversion, which would be ideal for a dependent relative/parents.
