Cottage overview - owner's description

Ideal for a family or 2 couples as the single beds zip and link to form a 6 foot bed. Convenient base to explore filming locations for Doc Martin and Poldark..We are walking distance to 2 excellent pubs with great food and local beers.
Rylands Meadow cottage dates from 1750. Nestling in a rural location half a mile from the picturesque award-winning village of Altarnun, Rylands is the perfect retreat for those seeking peace and tranquillity. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty with Moors to one side and the stunning North Cornwall coast on the other it’s the perfect location to explore Cornwall and Devon. Altarnun has a Post Office with general store together with a famous church known as the Cathedral on the Moor. Walking less than a mile in either direction brings you one of the two traditional local pubs serving excellent meals, real ale, and cider! Leave your car at the cottage!

Rylands is the ideal base for walking. Explore mystical Bodmin Moor including spectacular Roughtor and Cornwall’s highest peak Brown Willy.

Visit Du Maurier’s infamous Jamaica Inn, see Dozmary Pool where King Arthur’s sword excalibur rose. The spectacular Cornwall Coastal Path is only 10 miles away. Bring your walking boots!

The nearest town is the ancient capital of Cornwall, Launceston. The town dubbed the gateway to Cornwall has old narrow streets a Norman Castle and a Steam Railway. It has the usual facilities plus a leisure centre and excellent 18-hole golf course.

North Cornwall’s rugged coastline equals any in the world. Stunning beaches, surfing, cliff top walks, sunbathing, (it never rains in Cornwall!) and some of the most beautiful fishing villages in the Southwest. The delights of Port Isaac, Tintagel and Bude are a short drive away.
Rick Stein's Padstow is 40 mins drive with great restaurants and his fish and chips are a must, Stein's Deli is next door.
Why not come out of season and walk on virtually deserted sandy beaches?

•Just 1 mile from the A30
• Trout fishing 200 metres
• Cycle the famous Camel Trail
•30 min drive to the Eden Project and
the Lost Gardens of Heligan
• Port Isaac and Padstow within easy reach
• Golf and children’s leisure park at Trethorne closeby

Guest access
Cottage for exclusive guest use, plenty of private parking. Rylands sits in an acre of gardens and you are free to enjoy the space.
There is garden furniture and a bbq for al fresco dining. This is Cornish countryside at its best, the only sounds are birdsong. Buzzards circle overhead and nuthatches swamp our feeders. There is no light pollution so the stars are spectacular on clear nights.


Other things to note
First basket of Logs provided for cosy nights by the fire in winter.
