A quarter of a mile from the centre of Blisland is a beautiful place described by Country Life as ‘near perfect’. A lovely listed 17th century manor house (the owners’ home, used in the making of films) and, in its grounds, a long barn converted into three cottages called Tom, Dick and Harry. One-hundred yard drive leads from a lane to the cottages (which are completely hidden from it).
The cottages share lawns (tables/chairs, barbecue for each cottage) on three sides – one walled, one large with granite-pillared swing and trees.
Beyond them, park-like field with massive plane tree slopes to stream (tiddlers) with island. In all, 30 acres (sheep, cattle) for exploring: woods with unusual trees, remains of a Victorian water garden, grotto and Celtic crosses (medieval pilgrims en route to Falmouth, ship and Santiago de Compostela stopped here). Masses of space.
Newly restored barn available for parties and weddings, a spectacular space with well-equipped kitchen (caterers can be recommended) – please ask us for details.
