Waders, Polzeath

This splendidly spacious, modern home occupies an enviable position overlooking Polzeath beach and Pentire headland, making it the perfect choice for your holiday. Arriving at your slice of paradise, you’ll enter the property through the first floor which flows through to an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, finished off with vaulted ceilings and teak floors. Each space is complete with bi-fold doors, allowing you to step out onto the wraparound terrace – a stellar spot to take in the panoramic sea views. Waders offers a fully equipped kitchen area which is perfect for cooking up a storm. Whilst dinner is bubbling away, make the most of socialising in the roomy dining and living areas. If al-fresco dining in the sunshine is your thing, out on the terrace you’ll find a state-of-the-art Weber gas barbecue and ample seating where you can enjoy a scrumptious feast.

Make the most of relaxing in the sunken hot tub, or round off your day with an evening dip to take in the last rays of the setting sun. Off the main living area is a snug, complete with Smart TV and a large sofa, perfect for snuggling up and enjoying some downtime. Downstairs is where you’ll find five well-appointed bedrooms, three with their own en-suites and two sharing a family bathroom. For the kids, there is a bunk bedroom with a single bed and pull out bed, great for sleepovers every night of the holiday!

Blackberry Barn, Liskeard

Blackberry Barn is Old Lanwarnick’s most popular cottage for smaller families and groups seeking a sunny Cornish retreat. With bright, airy interiors, vaulted ceilings and full-height windows, you’ll be flooded with light all year round. And with one king-size and one twin bedroom, there’s plenty of space for you and the kids, or for two couples, to enjoy a relaxing Cornish break.

Enjoy lazy breakfasts on the south-facing patio, gazing out onto the rose garden and countryside views beyond, before exploring the Old Lanwarnick site – be it by the river, or up in the hilltop pavilion, gazing out across the incredible Cornish landscape that surrounds it. Kids will love meeting the resident animals in the day time (and parents will love seeing them burn off excess energy in the playground!), and when the evening rolls around, the games library is sure to have something for a fun family night in.

Blackberry Barn is one of six cottages at Old Lanwarnick. All are dog friendly, and with 34 acres to explore across the site, including its own woodland walk, two enclosed dog-exercise areas, a heated dog-wash, gym, hot tubs, EV chargers and more – all just a short drive from Looe, Polperro and Fowey – it’s the ultimate base from which to explore this beautiful pocket of Cornwall.
