Places to holiday in Commonmoor

Commonmoor has its origins in Cornwall’s tin and copper mining history and still very much a community. There are many cottages in the area that remain from the mining heyday and several have been converted in self catering holiday lets. Being a rural area barn conversions are also popular for Cornish holidays. Visitors to the area prefer self catering over hotels as it gives more freedom to explore Cornwall.

Cornish cottages in Commonmoor are perfectly located for exploring the ancient sites of Bodmin Moor, which has facilities for walking, fishing birdwatching, horse riding, cycling and dog walking. They are also ideal if you just want to relax in a quiet setting in the beautiful Cornish countryside. The nearby village of Minions has a village shop and pub.

Cottage holidays are also a perfect base to explore Jamaica Inn, the Eden Project, Tavistock, Dartmoor, Heligan or to travel into Devon to the City of Plymouth for shopping. It is also within easy reach of the south coast beaches and the trendy surfing beaches on the north coast such as Perranporth, Newquay, Polzeath and Bude.

Fabulous cottage and location

5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful 5 days at Wain cottage which was beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable, a real home from home. We would not hesitate to highly recommend this as the perfect holiday cottage and look forward to returning as soon as we can.

SECOND PAR NON

5 of 5
Hi Paul and Yvette, Sorry for the late review, as i thought i had sent one, must have done something wrong. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a truly wonderful stay in your magnificent house. Your property was far and away above my expectations, with so much room for our party of seven plus dog . We hope we left your home in the same condition as when we arrived. Now for an honest review - Upon arrival of the property we were amazed at the size of the house, it looked bigger than in the photos, once inside wow! All the rooms were of great proportions, the kitchen is large and very practical with appliances galore including dishwasher, fancy microwave, built in fridge and freezer basically everything you need, the cream teas were a nice touch Thank you. The utility room also included a self dispensing washing machine and is a great room for housing the dog cage. To finish downstairs their is a large conservatory with lovely views over the local countryside, a dining room off the kitchen with large family dinning table and finally a comfortable lounge with sofas and smart t.v etc etc. Upstairs continues with the same wow factor, with four double bedrooms, two with large en-suits and one bedroom with two singles. To finish off upstairs there is a large family bathroom including roll top bath and shower enclosure. The garden is huge, with decking area accessed from the utility including rattan dinning table and chairs, my only negative comment would be that the garden is unsecured, so dog owners be mindful. Par is a very good base for exploring the beautiful county of Cornwall. It has a chip shop, Chinese take away, Italian restaurant with views over the bay and the Ship Inn also deserves a mention with some great special boards, their are also convenient stores within easy reach. The Market every Saturday, Sunday and Wednesdays is worth a visit and is only 5 minutes away by car. Our family feel very privileged to have holidayed at this lovely large property and we would highly recommend to anyone without hesitation. Thanks Steve Robinson and Family
