SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Nestling at the heart of the pretty Cornish village of Harrowbarrow, in a quiet and peaceful location, away from the road and with no passing traffic, enjoying superb views extending across the village towards the Cornish countryside.

Harrowbarrow is a popular village with its own shop and primary school and is approximately 2.5 miles from the town of Callington and 3 miles from the large village of Gunnislake where there is a railway station with a regular train service into Plymouth.

Callington is an attractive small town situated within easy commuting distance of the city of Plymouth which is 15 miles away, with its fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain. It has a good range of shopping facilities, including a Tesco supermarket, and its own primary and comprehensive schools. There is a wide range of sporting facilities in the area, including the Country Club of St. Mellion, 3 miles away with its famous golf courses. Callington is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is a very short distance from the Tamar Valley, Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor National Park, and the many stunning Cornish beaches, towns and villages. The busy market towns of Liskeard, Launceston, Saltash and Tavistock are all within 8-10 miles.

A very attractive cottage, sympathetically restored and beautifully presented, offering surprisingly spacious accommodation including a 20ft sitting room, 20ft kitchen/dining room, sun room, study, three bedrooms and bathroom. The property benefits from owned solar panels and we understand these generate an annual income of approximately £1600.

In addition, opposite the cottage is a separate barn/annexe with self-contained ancillary accommodation on the first floor which is perfect for guests or, perhaps, an independent teenager.

Adjacent to the barn there is a large gravelled parking and turning area. There are two areas of garden; one adjacent to the cottage and a much larger garden next to the parking area which is a particularly attractive feature of this property.
