Downicary Chapel Stable Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Downicary Chapel Stable is a detached barn conversion in Downicary, a mile and a half from the village of St Giles-on-the-Heath. The cottage has a double and a bathroom upstairs, and downstairs is a twin room, a kitchen and a sitting room with dining area and woodburner. Outside is off road parking for one car, and an open lawned area with patio and furniture. Downicary Chapel Stable is in an ideal location for touring, as it is on the Devon/Cornwall border and within easy reach of the coast, country walks, the Eden Project, NT properties and more.

The town of Launceston, situated on the Devon and Cornwall border, has wonderful architecture, including some fine Georgian buildings in the central square and is dominated by the ruins of a Norman castle sitting high above the town. Visit the Tamar Otter Park just 3 miles away or take a trip on the steam train from Launceston through the beautiful Kensey Valley on a 5 mile round trip. Launceston is within driving distance of the seaside resorts of Bude and Padstow as well as the stunning Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor. A superb base for exploring Cornwall and Devon.

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

Electric convector heating with woodburner. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, TV with Freeview, DVD, selection of books, games and DVDs. Fuel, power and starter pack for woodburner inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Travel cot and highchair. Off road parking for 1 car. Open garden area with lawn, patio and furniture. One well-behaved dog welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop and pub 1.5 miles. Note: This property has a private water supply from a bore hole and the indoor pump is audible at times.

Lovely cottage, very peaceful, just what we needed, getting away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives! Set in lovely countryside, and easy access to lots of places to visit. The owners were very helpful.

The cottage had everything we needed It was very clean and comfortable Very good location for touring around - as we did Only thing we were disappointed with was the height of the ceilings upstairs My husband is over 6 foot and he could only stand upright in the middle of the bedroom I was fine being 5 foot 6 inches. I think it should state the ceilings are low in the bedroom and bathroom I would come back - but with my daughters not my husband

It was a lovely quiet retreat, the owners are lovely, the views and area it is in is lovely. Ideal for walks and also the cottage is convenient for Devon and Cornwall. Really did not want to leave, have booked with Sykes for several years now and always been pleased with cottages but this one excelled expectation.
