    About this property

    The Rookery provides accommodation perfect for a family or group of friends close to the stunning beaches of North Cornwall and Devon.
    Although located just minutes from the main east-west A30 trunk road right on the Devon/Cornwall border, a winding country lane leads you through the estate woodlands to the properties.
    Set around the old farm courtyard, these luxury converted barns are ideal to visit at any time of year. Perfect for family holidays or for those who prefer to visit the West Country during the quieter months. Enjoy peaceful walks through the estate, which is bordered by the rivers Tamar and Lyd or just sit in the garden and experience the peace and quiet of the countryside.
    The estate is located just outside the village of Lifton with its award-winning farm shop and restaurant which is open every day. With freshly made bread, pasties, pies, butchery, freshly picked vegetables, a deli counter full of local cheeses it really is a perfect place to find local fresh ingredients and truly homemade meals. They will even arrange for meals to be delivered to your door!
    Wooladon is an ideal base for visiting both the coastal resorts and the moorland areas. The north Cornish coast, with its dramatic Atlantic rollers and big wide sandy beaches, is perfect for surfers, coasteering and kayaking for the more adventurous! The south coast is more sheltered with sandy beaches, sailing and pretty seaside towns to wander around. If you prefer to stay inland, Dartmoor is less than half an hours drive with miles and miles of rugged moorland to wander, tors to climb, pretty little villages to visit or follow the streams and Drakes Leat which leads to Plymouth.
    The local market towns of Launceston, Tavistock and Okehampton are all within 15 miles. The world-famous Eden Project is less than an hours drive away. Also within easy reach are Port Isaac (where Doc Martin was filmed), Fowey (home of Daphne du Maurier), The Rosamunde Pilcher trail, Tintagel with its Arthurian Legends, Jamaica Inn on Bodmin Moor and so much more. Also, easy to reach are the cathedral city of Exeter, and the historic port of Plymouth with its famous Hoe and Barbican area with the Mayflower Steps. Close by is Roadford Lake with walking, sailing and fishing. Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre with its working fairground rides makes a good day out. Local National Trust properties include Cothele, Lanhydrock and Lydford Gorge.
    Shop, pub and restaurants 1 mile.

    "Very spacious and comfortable. Set in nice location with great farm shop just up the road. Enjoyed the welcoming gift of freshly baked bread, scones, jam and clotted cream. Would stay again"

    "We really enjoyed our stay at the Rookery and it certainly matched the photos. We were very pleased with the wonderful welcome hamper that had clotted cream, jam, scones, bread, daffodils and milk in the fridge. It was a lovely welcome and we really enjoyed our cream tea. So much so we went to the farm shop to buy more scones and cream. The cottage is perfect and worked well . We had two families and a pug including three children.The estate is very well maintained and the children loved the lambs, highland cattle ,goats and all the birds and pheasants. It is a good centre to be able to explore both Devon and Cornwall.It is a very comfortable place to stay and well equipped. We were welcomed when we arrived and met when we left which was appreciated. We would highly recommend this property. Little things like the hamper and the stair gate that was put in which was very useful for our pug.We recommend going to the farm shop for their delicious pasties. They are so well filled and absolutely delicious."

    "On arrival the cottage was perfectly presented and larger than expected. There was ample parking for several vehicles and the owners were friendly, approachable and keen to ensure we enjoyed the stay."
