Fivelanes 1 mile.
This charming, detached barn conversion is set on the outskirts of Trewint, a sleepy hamlet on the borders of Bodmin Moor, one mile from Fivelanes and just eight miles from Launceston.
Tucked away down a farm lane, on one and a quarter acres of land with beautiful views and easy access to the A30, Jolls Ground Barn is the perfect retreat for families, friends and couples exploring Cornwall.
A large, gravelled drive at the front of the cottage provides plenty of parking space and sensational views of rolling countryside.
In the cosy, functional kitchen, a Belfast sink enjoys a glimpse of the views fronting the property, and the large, modern double oven is great for keen cooks - you can bake and cook delicious meals with fresh, tasty Cornish produce.
From the kitchen, the cottage opens into a social sitting room with two comfy sofas and a beautiful granite chimney breast housing a woodburning stove.
The conservatory, accessed through the sitting room, acts as a bright dining room where you can soak up the afternoon sun and marvel at the countryside beyond.
Plan the day, write your postcards and curl up in the armchair with a book and enjoy some quiet time to yourself!
On the far side of the property are three beautifully furnished bedrooms, all enjoying delightful views.
They provide the perfect place to rest your head after a long day exploring the moors, that can conveniently be accessed just 800 yards up the road.
Furnished with cute cushions and bright, beautiful bed throws, the rooms have been carefully decorated to create a welcoming home-from-home.
Meanwhile, the garage has been converted into a games room where the kids can play table tennis, darts or pool.
To the back of the property is a large enclosed lawned garden and a paved patio with garden furniture where you can dine alfresco when the weather is warm.
There is also a field where kids and dogs can let off steam.
In Fivelanes is a wonderful country pub serving lovely food, which can be reached on foot in about 15 minutes.
You can enjoy great walks over Bodmin Moor, a short walk from the doorstep, making it an excellent choice for outdoor enthusiasts and dog owners.
Within 300 yards of the Barn is the open moorland area known as Trewint Downs.
A similar distance beyond is direct access to the major part of Bodmin Moor via Westmoor Gate, quite simply one of the best wild open spaces in the southwest of England with breath-taking scenery.
Bodmin Moor has just been designated as an International Dark Sky Landscape, so you can enjoy the night sky and its stars from the Barn.
The North Coast is approximately half an hour away, where you can explore the popular picturesque coastal villages of Tintagel, Port Isaac and Padstow.
On the opposite coast are the historic fishing ports of Polperro and Looe, with an abundance of shops, pubs and cafes.
In a fantastic location for exploring the border between Cornwall and Devon, Jolls Ground Barn is sure to make your holiday extra memorable.

Launceston 8 miles.
The small village of Five Lanes is situated just off the A30, less than 10 miles from Launceston and is home to the Kings Head pub and hotel, which was built in 1623. The pretty, neighbouring village of Altarnun offers a village shop, a Post Office and church, which is known as "the cathedral of the moors" plus long walks can be enjoyed around the local area. Eight miles away is the town of Launceston, on the Devon and Cornwall border. This town boasts wonderful architecture, including Georgian buildings in the central square, and is dominated by the ruins of a Norman castle sitting high above the town. Within driving distance is the Tamar Otter Park, or why not take a trip on the steam train from Launceston through the beautiful Kensey Valley? This area is near to The Camel Trail, which is part of the National Cycle Network. There's plenty to see and do in the area, including visiting the seaside resorts of Bude and Padstow, as well as the city of Plymouth, and the stunning Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor are well worth exploring. A lovely base for your Cornish adventure.
