Ashleigh is a two storey individual period cottage dating from the end of the 19th Century. The property has a light and airy atmosphere, with a number of traditional features, including exposed beam ceilings, stone, brick and granite fireplace, and deep window sills.

The property has LPG fired central heating with compact modern wall mounted boiler and uPVC double glazed windows, door and conservatory.

The property fronts onto the A395, which links the A39 Atlantic Highway at Davidstow to the A30 dual carriageway spine road for Cornwall and Devon at Kennards House, near Launceston.  The property is approximately 3 miles from the ancient former market town of Camelford, which provides a range of social, commercial and shopping facilities, including a food supermarket.  Camelford has a primary school and secondary school, together with sports centre and health centre.

Within 5-6 miles of the property, is wonderful National Trust cliff scenery including Tintagel, Trebarwith Strand, Boscastle, Strangles and Crackington Haven.  Totally unspoilt, the stretch includes   former fishing villages, family beaches, and superb cliff scenery for walking.

The former market town of Launceston is some 13 miles away.  Beyond,  the city of Exeter is a further 42 miles by continuous dual carriageway.  At Exeter there is an intercity rail link, international airport and M5 motorway link.  To the south of Launceston, the city of Plymouth provides a Continental ferry port.

In all directions from the property is scenery of outstanding natural beauty. To the north the coastal  scenery, to the west the open spaces of Bodmin Moor, to the east Dartmoor National Park, and running southwards the Tamar Valley steeped in 18th Century mining history, renowned for salmon fishing, and running out into the wonderful Plymouth Sound, superb for yachting and water sports.
