Situated within the Tamar Valley on the Cornwall / Devon border, midway between Bodmin moor and Dartmoor, you will be perfectly placed to explore the region's many and varied attractions, which include beautiful walking, horse riding and cycling country; canoeing, sailing, salmon and sea trout fishing on the River Tamar; stunning coastlines; many places of historical interest; and a strong regional food culture.
The small hamlet of Rezare is nestled above the Inny Valley, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a peaceful and relaxed environment which, although only 5 miles from Launceston and Callington, and within easy reach of the main roads which connect to wherever you wish to go, is far enough from the rush of modern life to allow you to instantly forget that it exists, and is the ideal, restful base to return to after your days out exploring.
Although no longer a working farm, the surrounding area is entirely agricultural, which means that on the rare occasions that any traffic passes through, it is almost guaranteed to be a tractor. The extensive birdlife produces a variety of sound which is a joy to wake up to.
On clear days both Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor are visible from many points around the hamlet, with Kit Hill dominating the view from most bedrooms and the dining room / guests' lounge. A short walk away is the River Tamar, its wooded valley meandering down towards Plymouth, passing on its way many beautiful and interesting areas to visit, including Calstock, Morwellham Quay and Cothele House, to name just a few.
The house itself is full of character, with many original features still in place. The main section was built some time in the mid - late 1600's, with two extensions added during the Georgian era. It was constructed in the same way that most traditional Cornish farmhouses of the period were, with a mixture of slate, granite, and whatever other stone was to hand being used for the walls on the ground floor, mud and straw on the first floor.
All rooms are generously sized, retain many orginal features throughout, contain touches of luxury in the important areas, and are furnished to a high standard with very comfortable beds and practical antiques. In addition to a colour television with freeview, we also supply a high quality, vintage Hacker radio, and a hairdryer. Ironing facilities are available upon request. Guests have access to our free wifi network thoughout the house.
The beds in all of our rooms have simple, sturdy wooden frames with high quality individually pocket sprung mattresses, bed linen is 100% Egyptian cotton, the blankets are beautifully soft pure virgin wool, and we offer both goose feather and down, and non-allergenic pillows. Each bed is also covered with one of Nanette's hand-made quilts.
Each room has ensuite facilities which comprise either a shower or bath ( or both, in the single room ), with handmade soaps, a selection of high quality toiletries, and large cotton towels.
Breakfast makes use of the fact that Launceston has an excellent butcher who make their own delicious sausages and cure their own bacon. Pure apple juice is produced from fruit grown within a three mile radius of the house, eggs come from our own chickens, we bake fresh bread daily, make our own fruit compote, yoghurt and granola, and have a range of home-made preserves.
As well as the traditional full English breakfast we offer alternatives such as kippers, or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
Three-course meals are available most nights, freshly prepared by Nanette, who spent 20 years cooking professionally. The menus, which change daily, make full use of the fact that we have many excellent producers and suppliers of meat, fish, vegetables and cheeses locally. We use seasonal produce whenever possible and use ingredients that speak for themselves, cooking them simply and with care, with the minimum of fuss.
All special dietary requirements are catered for, and if you have any particular likes or dislikes, we will be happy to take them into consideration.
We are licensed, and stock a range of award-winning, locally produced wines, beers and ciders.
