Set in 300 acres of farmland, this six-bed property gives 14 people and two dogs the chance to live out halcyon dreams together, less than 4 miles from Tamar Lakes and 8 miles from the coast. Winter retreat and summer haven, the beautiful Cornish landscape surrounding this large self-catering home transform with the seasons and provide a year-round activity for nature-lovers and walkers alike.

Following the sweeping drive, the presence of ample off-road parking makes your arrival as smooth as possible. Grab your bags and head inside; as soon as you enter the property you are met with a sensation of total warmth and relaxation in the stunning entrance hall, overlooked by a split staircase and unique antler chandelier. From here, peel off and venture into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Flaunting sleek modern style softened with sumptuous furnishings, rough-luxe features and lots of natural light, it offers space, tranquillity and comfort in abundance. The well-equipped kitchen has everything you could need for family meals, whilst the adjoining dining and lounge areas, centred around a raised, double-sided wood burner, are comfortable arenas for sharing plates, drinks and anecdotes. On sunny days, branch out into the 300 acres of open farmland and play frisbee in the enclosed garden, before hopping into the hot tub for a bubbling soak. When the weather turns less pleasant, the property provides hours of entertainment in the form of the games room featuring a pool table and table tennis; a perfect haunt for children and teens. While the hours away chatting and playing, and when you have finally exhausted your energy, make tracks towards bed. Home to six bedrooms, including four with en-suites, everyone can look forward to somewhere comfortable for a blissfully uninterrupted night's sleep.
