Full description

A CHARMING 4 BEDROOM DETACHED COTTAGE, SITUATED IN A RURAL LOCATION JUST 3 MILES FROM LOSTWITHIEL. Beautiful gardens, countryside views, parking for several cars and garage.

Renovated by the current owners, this delightful cottage offers comfortable family living space with much character and many original features. The sunny garden offers peace and privacy with mature trees and shrubs, vegetable garden, and outhouses offering additional storage facilities. An absolute gem - must be seen to be appreciated.

Lying in the parish of Boconnoc, the property is about half a mile from the hamlet of Couch's Mill and approximately 3 miles from the ancient Stannary town of Lostwithiel. Formerly the ancient capital of Cornwall, Lostwithiel has a good range of small shops and business catering for most day to day needs, two high street banks, community centre/sports hall, railway station and golf course. The larger towns of Bodmin, Liskeard and St. Austell are all within a 20 to 30 minute drive. Local schools comprise a primary school at Lerryn and secondary school at Fowey for which, we understand, a school bus passes the end of the lane.

The delightful harbourside town of Fowey is about 4 miles to the south, via the Bodinnick Ferry, where there are a good range of shops and restaurants. Once away from the immediately local lanes, there are good road links via the A38/A30 to the motorway system and rail links (London Paddington) can be made at several of the nearby towns. There are regular flights to London from Newquay, about a 45 minute drive.

To the rear of the cottage, steps lead from the rear hall to a small patio area and steps lead up to further outhouses, one of which houses the pump system for the private water supply.
