Property description

Set in a rural hamlet surrounded by farmland on the fringes of Bodmin Moor yet easily accessible. The property is 1 mile from the well-respected gastro-pub, the Rising Sun Inn, and 2 miles from the picturesque villages of Altarnun and Polyphant. The A30 is within 3 miles and gives access to the former market town of Launceston, some 7 miles to the east. At Launceston there are supermarkets, doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeries, together with two testing 18-hole golf courses and a leisure centre.

The majestic Bodmin Moor offers a wide range of outdoor pursuits together with some of the finest riding out in the West Country. The A30 also provides access to the Cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter. At Exeter there is access to the M5 motorway network, mainline railway station serving London Paddington and an international airport.
