Hidden away in its own delightful secluded garden, this large, villa-style cottage was built in the 1920s. Cutmadoc has a truly privileged position: with views over Lanhydrock's historic parkland, it is the only holiday cottage in the heart of Cornwall's flagship National Trust estate. You have all the delights of Lanhydrock within a short walk from your front door, and yet you can return to the privacy and peace of Cutmadoc at any time.

For the more adventurous, there are approximately 10km of off road cycle trails for all the family and a cycle skills area in nearby woodland.

Although Lanhydrock alone would be enough to keep you enthralled for an entire holiday, Cutmadoc is also perfectly placed in the centre of Cornwall for you to take advantage of both the north and south coasts and the wilds of Bodmin Moor, all within easy reach.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!

    The quiet location within the Lanhydrock Estate. The walks within the estate and the display of camellias and magnolias, the latter were the main reason for our booking The trouble that had been taken to provide information (including maps, local walks, appliance instructions) The lovely flowers provided by Patricia, the housekeeper.

    Cutmadoc bungalow was not very promising viewed from the outside, but the inside was beautifully presented with lovely furniture and kitchen. It was cleaned to a high standard.

    The location was wonderful for walks and bike riding. The organised trails were great for the children. Inside and outside trails.

    We were fortunate that we had lovely weather and the autumn colours were wonderful, especially a tree in the cottage garden. Lanhydrock is my favourite NT property and I was delighted to be staying so close even though we had to rent a property for 6 people and there is only 2 of us and had to pay for rooms we didn't use. Would be great if there were more properties to rent on the Lanhydrock estate.

    we liked the little touches that were left in the cottage : the fresh flowers, tea & coffee, and milk, and dishwasher, the free entry into the national trust property.
