Demelza Cottage at Hockadays has been converted from a 17th century barn, which was used for farming purposes until 1986. It is situated at Tregenna, an attractive hamlet of some six properties. The village of Blisland is half a mile away and has a well stocked shop, internet cafe and post office.
Demelza Cottage is ideal for couples and combines comfort with all the original character of the building, including open beams, wooden lintels, small paned windows and cottage doors. The cottage has a sitting room, separate kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom. The sitting room and kitchen are on the ground floor with the bedroom and bathroom on the first floor.
Furnishings are in cottage style and there are wall lights, prints and a digital freeview television. There are loose rugs over a polished slate floor. The fitted kitchen has a full size cooker, microwave, refrigerator, kettle, toaster, ironing board and iron.
There is a plentiful supply of cooking and serving utensils, wine and spirit glasses, matching dinner and tea service. The bedroom has fitted carpeting and all bed linen is supplied at no extra cost - cotton sheets and pillowcases - and the bed is made up ready for your arrival. The bathroom has a bath with overhead shower.
The immersion heater supplies hot water to the bathroom and kitchen. Heating is by fan and convector heaters with storage heating available on request. All electricity except storage heating is metered through a coin meter.
Blisland village is one of the most picturesque in Cornwall with a village shop and post office and the Blisland Inn. The village green, the only one in the county, is flanked by Blisland church which is mentioned in the writings of Sir John Betjeman. Demelza Cottage is well situated for walking, touring and visits to the beaches.
On remote Bodmin Moor and surrounding it are many charming villages and hamlets, such as Alternun, Advent and St. Tudy (birthplace of Captain Bligh of' 'Bounty' fame). The well known hostelry 'Jamaica Inn' is at Bolventor.
The North Cornwall coast is renowned for its impressive cliffs and short steep valleys leading to sandy coves and bays. There are excellent large beaches at Trebarwith, Polzeath and Daymer Bay and a particularly splendid beach at Tregardock, south of Tintagel. The coastal footpath is protected by the National Trust over long stretches at Port Isaac, Polzeath and Tintagel.
Visits can be made to Pencarrow, a large Georgian house still privately owned or Lanhydrock House, a 17th century manor house owned by the National Trust. You may also wish to visit Tintagel Castle romantically associated with King Arthur. The Eden Project is within easy distance.
The nearby Camel Trail has replaced the old railway line as far as Padstow and provides a quiet and scenic route for walking and cycling.
