Coombe Mill, St.Giles on the Heath, Launceston, PL15 9RY Tel: 01566 784196
The Shippen at Coombe Mill is a one bedroomed detached property for two people that has been totally renovated to a high standard with underfloor heating throughout.
It is close to the River Carey and surrounded by a private and secluded nature reserve of 34 acres; the perfect retreat for those who enjoy wildlife and peace and quiet.
The cottage is ideal for people interested in natural history. There are kingfishers, dippers, barn owl, tawny owl and also deer, foxes, badgers, otters and bats.
The property is close to the Devon/Cornwall border and six miles from Launceston; once the ancient capital of Cornwall. Only four miles from the A30 its central position means that most places in Devon and Cornwall are less than an hour's drive away.
The Shippen is reached along a private tree lined drive. The river is a stone's throw away and the property is surrounded by woodland with fields and a pond close by. There's also a disused railway line. There is no light pollution and the fields are good places for stargazing.
Regretfully the property is unsuitable for children and no pets are allowed.
