Holiday Rental House
Acorns is a really comfortable 2 storey 1 bedroom cottage, occupying one end of the Owners' superb converted granite barn which used to be an old threshing barn. Located in a small hamlet of about 10 houses and converted barns, this peaceful rural location is a wonderful place to escape to at any time of year. The wilds of Bodmin Moor with endless walking opportunities are nearby and the spectacular scenery of both Cornish coasts and Dartmoor are all within easy reach. The area abounds with country pubs - most of which have roaring fires in the winter months, and the towns of Launceston and Liskeard are just short distance away. Acorns is just 2 miles from Minions, Cornwall's highest village, the famous Cheesewring, a dramatic outcrop of granite slabs and The Hurlers, a set of three bronze...Acorns is a really comfortable 2 storey 1 bedroom cottage, occupying one end of the Owners' superb converted granite barn which used to be an old threshing barn.

Acorns is just 2 miles from Minions, Cornwall's highest village, the famous Cheesewring, a dramatic outcrop of granite slabs and The Hurlers, a set of three bronze age stone circles.The area is rich in mining history with many chimneys, engine houses and stone railway tracks still visible - a reminder of Cornwall's long mining tradition.
