Acorns is a really comfortable 2 storey 1 bedroom cottage, occupying one end of the Owners' superb converted granite barn which used to be an old threshing barn. Located in a small hamlet of about 10 houses and converted barns, this peaceful rural location is a wonderful place to escape to at any time of year. The wilds of Bodmin Moor with endless walking opportunities are nearby and the spectacular scenery of both Cornish coasts and Dartmoor are all within easy reach. The area abounds with country pubs - most of which have roaring fires in the winter months, and the towns of Launceston and Liskeard are just short distance away. Acorns is just 2 miles from Minions, Cornwall's highest village, the famous Cheesewring, a dramatic outcrop of granite slabs and The Hurlers, a set of three bronze age stone circles.The area is rich in mining history with many chimneys, engine houses and stone railway tracks still visible - a reminder of Cornwall's long mining tradition.
Acorns is located in 3 designated areas - Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Area of Great Scientific Value and Area of Great Historic Value. So something for everyone! The oak tree shown in the photos is the "famous" Darley Oak which is over 1000 years old. This is a great location to visit if you are a keen walker. There are endless opportunities to explore the local area. A great dog friendly cottage too! The barn itself is set out in reverse style with a kitchen / living room on the first floor and access into the enclosed garden. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with external access, a large bathroom with bath and separate shower.
Ground Floor: Double bedroom (4'6'') with large bathroom featuring traditional freestanding roll top bath, separate shower, WC and basin.
