Glenleigh Self Catering Cottage is located in a delightful rural position, close to the main road between St Austell and Truro. The location is perfect for those wishing to explore the whole of Cornwall and is especially close to the South Coast from St Mawes & the Roseland Peninsula to the south, the beautiful gardens of Heligan and Trewithen, the spectacular Eden Project in St Austell and the wonderful harbour towns of Charlestown, Mevagissey and Fowey. Charlestown has been the setting for many historical dramas including the latest series of Poldark. There are fantastic sandy beaches within a short drive of the farm on the beautiful nearby coastline which also offers great walking and cycling opportunities.
The cottage itself is a spacious and very well equipped conversion of a stone barn which was completed a few years ago. There is an open plan kitchen, dining and living space with a vaulted beamed ceiling. A private garden with a patio area is behind the cottage – a perfect place to enjoy an evening drink or BBQ. This is a wonderful place to stay for those who enjoy a spot of fishing. There is a beautiful, well-stocked lake with a great assortment of fish and twenty easily accessible platforms. Carp have been stocked to 25lb, tench to 7lb, bream to 6lb, perch to 4lb with higher than average-sized roach, rudd and hybrids. With a central island and lily pad beds, there is no shortage of fish-holding features to fish to. The lake is a short walk from the cottage and your fishing is included with any booking!
