New for 2019
Colliford Lake Park is nestled amidst the rugged beauty of Bodmin Moor, which extends to almost 200 square kilometres. The 2 bed house is fully self-contained with all the usual amenities and home comforts; it is perfect base for families or friends who wish to experience this unique part of Cornwall. The master bedroom and the living room provide spectacular views over Colliford Lake and the surrounding moorland. Both bedrooms have plenty of storage. The living room is comfortably furnished and has a 50” TV. The kitchen diner is fully equipped and includes a dishwasher, oven and hob, washer/dryer, microwave kettle and toaster. There is ample parking directly in front of the private entrance.
The Park itself is privately owned and extends to 50 Acres of pasture with direct access to the Lake. The Lake is a 1,000 Acre water reservoir which is owned by South West Water and operated by South West Lakes Trust. It is Cornwall’s premier brown trout fishery and fly fishing is open to the public until the 12th October 19 if they purchase a permit (http://trout.swlakesfishing.co.uk/waters/colliford-lake/#pricing). A monster 9lb 8oz brown trout was caught (and released) during the last weekend in July 18 so we know that it is a superb location to fish. Part of the pasture is set aside for wild camping in the peak seasons.
Bodmin Moor is an Internationally renowned designated ‘Dark Sky’ Landscape because of the lack of light pollution which provides dramatic night skies when conditions allow. The House is located in the heart of the Moor so it is the perfect location for both novice and experienced astronomers to enjoy their exploration of things beyond the Earth’s atmosphere. If you are keen to learn more about Astronomy we can put you in touch with an expert adviser on this subject and also a supplier of telescopes to suit all skill levels.
The Moor is a Walkers & Hikers paradise and the house is a great base for enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.
