Standing in a picturesque and dramatic position on Bodmin Moor, Hallagenna Cottages are situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within a mile or so of St. Breward Village. St. Breward is a charming traditional village with a thriving community and a range of local facilities including a post office/general store, primary school and an excellent pub. Around three miles distant is the pretty moorland village of Blisland which is centred around its village green complete with award winning CAMRA public house and village store.

Bodmin Moor itself is literally on the doorstep with a network of footpaths offering direct access to some of the county's most spectacular scenery that is steeped in history. For those with an equine interest, the riding out is of an excellent standard and for guests there is a riding stables opposite the cottages offering guided hacks and trails.

The estuary town of Wadebridge, located on the banks of the River Camel is around 10 miles distant, offering an excellent range of amenities including shops, primary schools, secondary schools and cinema. The North Cornish coastline is also readily accessible boasting a number of fine sandy surfing beaches together with pretty harbour villages including Port Isaac and Padstow.

Within a short distance of Hallagenna Cottages is the Camel Trail which is one of Cornwalls best known attractions being a cycle path that runs for around 18 miles along the side of a disused railway line and the Camel Estuary.

There is salmon fishing on the rivers Camel and Fowey whilst trout fishing is available at Temple and on the Siblyback and Colliford Lakes. Siblyback is also a popular watersports centre.


Originally a traditional working farm and home of Beatos, the black stallion from the Lloyds Bank adverts, Hallagenna is an attractive and established lifestyle business.

Purchased by the vendors in 2007, this charming complex of converted barns retains a wealth of period features and has been thoughtfully updated to create extremely comfortable guest accommodation. Two additional cottages have also been constructed and designed to reflect the inherent character of the original properties.

Four of the cottages accommodate four guests whilst Old Dairy Cottage, which adjoins the farmhouse, could easily be occupied as an annexe and sleeps three. Each has allocated parking and a separate patio.

The principal farmhouse is a super family home that has again been sympathetically renovated and extended. The property features a number of traditional character details including slate flagged floors, a Rayburn and exposed timbered ceilings.

Outside there is an extensive horseshoe shaped stable yard with ten stables, a detached double garage, carport and log store with studio over and a separate games room. The paddocks are level and arranged in three separate enclosures.

In addition there is a Utility Room and the cosy and well-proportioned Sitting Room retaining a wealth of features including an open beamed ceiling, slate flagged floor and handsome granite fireplace with clome oven and inset wood burning stove.
