Stable Barn - Drakewalls, Gunnislake, Cornwall, England - Sleeps 8

Stable Barn

Stable Barn is a spacious recently converted barn with wooden floors throughout and on the first floor each room has characterful, vaulted, beamed ceilings. Each of the four bedrooms has the added luxury of an en-suite making it easy for large groups and families to get out in the mornings. The contemporary style sitting room has two sets of French doors leading out to a private, sunny south facing courtyard garden.

Stable Barn is in the small village of Drakewalls situated in the beautiful Tamar Valley, with its many countryside walks. The barn is just a short walk away from a popular pub/ restaurant and there is a convenience store, fish and chip shop, garage and railway station (one of the most scenic railway branch lines) just a five minute walk away. The village of Gunnislake with a choice of pubs/ restaurants is less than a mile away. It is within easy reach of Kit Hill Country Park, Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor, making it ideal for those who enjoy walking. Close by, there is The Tamar Valley Donkey Park and Play Barn, Cotehele House and Mill, Calstock Quay and the River Tamar at Gunnislake. The picturesque town of Tavistock, on the edge of Dartmoor, with its many restaurants, cafés and pubs is four miles away and Plymouth with its famous Hoe is accessible both by train and car.

Being centrally located allows access to both the South Coast of Cornwall with its lovely quaint fishing villages of Polperro and Looe and the North Coast with its expanse of sandy surfing beaches such as Bude and Newquay.
