“Far From the Madding Crowd”: If you are seeking peace and tranquillity within an environment surrounded by an abundance of wildlife, your prayers have been answered”

This stunning predominantly stone built cottage is a ‘joy to behold’ providing spacious, fully modernised and immaculately presented living accommodation. The property would make an exceptional family residence, ‘turnkey’ second home, or in its current status a successful holiday let business. Set within approximately nine acres of wonderful and panoramic Cornish countryside.

‘Hartswell’ has been extended and in recent years has been tastefully refurnished and redecorated by the current owners to an exceptional standard, yet still retaining plenty of period charm and character. The two principal reception rooms are spacious, having their own fireplaces, complete with wood and multi-fuel burners. Without a doubt a major highlight is the expansive and well equipped 31 ft kitchen/diner with integrated appliances and utility area leading off. There is a ground floor bedroom (4) plus a shower room/WC. To the first floor there are three double sized bedrooms, two having vaulted ceilings and en-suite facilities. Off the landing is a large storage/potential study area. Wonderful views towards the gardens can be enjoyed from the majority of rooms. Externally there is ample off road parking for a considerable number of vehicles. The extensive gardens comprise of formal pasture and woodland featuring several outbuildings including a substantial 29ft barn offering scope for equestrian/stabling, or as an extra large garage. This building has its own power supply. There is also a timber holiday lodge, which could be adapted as a ‘work from home’ office or garden room. The grounds border a tributary of the Looe river and adjoins the mainly coniferous Deer Park. An enchanting walk following the river valley for approximately six miles ending on the coast in Looe is a breathtaking experience. Another interesting fact is this cottage has its own spring water supply.

The village of Herodsfoot is a quintessential Cornish village set within four valleys where the tributaries of the West Looe river meet. The river has cut a steep valley. The name Herodsfoot comes from the old Cornish ‘Hir-Garth’ – the long hill the poet Laureat John Betjeman described the village as an ‘inland Polperro within a deeply wooded valley’, where there are many species of wildlife to enjoy. A lead and silver mine functioned in the village for centuries and the church dates from 1850.

‘Hartswell’ is available to purchase as a private residence or fully equipped with a range of furniture and fittings (subject to separate negotiation) for ongoing holiday letting usage of as a ‘turnkey’ second home. If you are tired of living in the city living life at a ‘break neck’ speed then this is the ultimate place to unwind and enjoy life.

Herodsfoot is situated approximately four miles South West of Liskeard and five miles north of Looe. Fast road access is available via the A38 into Plymouth (approx 40 minutes) and the heart of Cornwall. Mainline railway from Liskeard to Paddington.

Upon entering the village close to the phone box is a lane with a wall sign saying ‘Logs for sale’ proceed to the far end passing the logging business turn right and proceed up the lane. The property can be found on the right hand side.
