Full Description


Our Local Pub
The Blisland Inn (former CAMRA national pub of the year) sits on the edge of the beautiful village green over looking both it and the church and is less than 10 minutes walk away. The landlord Gary (a wide range of local ales) and Margaret (his wife, who provides a wide variety of home cooked food) are very hospitable. There is always a fire burning in the hearth, and they welcome walkers and dogs (a treat is provided!).
The Cottage
Blisland Cottage is full of character with exposed beams and stone with log burners (wood provided) and an oil fired aga (lit in colder months) set within gardens extending to three quarters of an acre with various lawns and seating areas. To the rear is a large fenced (6ft) lawned area ideal for playing football, or exercising the dog. The remainder of the garden is fenced and gated.
There are three bedrooms which allow six guest to stay in comfort, along with a sitting room, dining room, conservatory, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, bath and shower rooms as well as a lavatory on the ground floor. Outside there is a double garage, two parking areas (for several cars) and a log store. Wireless Broadband is available.
The Surroundings
Blisland is one of the most sought after villages in the county. At its heart is the village green which is possibly the largest in Cornwall. Overlooking the green is the Blisland Inn which is a former CAMRA pub of the year and the parish church of St Protus and St Hyacinth (originally Norman) about which Sir John Betjeman said “As a restoration – even improvement – of a medieval church, this can hardly be bettered”, There is also a shop and post office which offers a super range of provisions as well as the internet cafe. A number of substantial granite houses and pretty cottages overlook the green.There is a village website www.blisland.com.
The expansive areas of Bodmin Moor are a short distance above the village, and in contrast below the village to the west is the beautiful Camel Valley with the trail which will take you along the former line of the steam railway to Padstow (bikes are available to hire in Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow). The Forestry Commission have extensive woodland at Cardinham where there are both marked paths, play areas and mountain bike course as well as a very good cafe.
