Nestling in the beautiful Tamar Valley, close to the Devon border, these delightful stone barn conversions have been completely renovated to provide very good accommodation. Set within an equestrian centre, highly commended by the British Horse Society, riding lessons are available by qualified British Horse Society approved staff - ranging from complete beginners to advanced, and your own horses are also most welcome. There is pleasant hacking as well as an all weather floodlit arena, show jumping and cross country course for beginners to experienced riders. Ideal for all horse lovers, St Leonards certainly is a holiday base with a difference, situated in a wooded valley, it provides for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. Set in a secluded suntrap on the edge of a courtyard and surrounded by 6 acres of grounds which is also home to a ½-acre coarse fishing lake. There is plenty of birdlife here including kingfishers, awaken to the sound of the dawn chorus! There is much to see here to suit all tastes, and it is an ideal location for touring the north and south coasts. Whether you wish to wander amidst wildlife, go fishing on the River Kensey close by, or take part in a game of paint ball (available on site), there are plenty to get out and about and feel invigorated by the fresh Cornish air. Whatever the season and however you wish to fill your time, the cottages have been very comfortably furnished and equipped, featuring solid pine throughout and woodburners, to make them a welcome home to come back to. Whilst there are a wealth of distractions available on site, the surrounding area is also a delight to explore. There is an archaelogical site nearby which was featured on TV's 'Time Team' programme. Go west to the Widemouth Heritage Coast and visit mystical Tintagel and Port Isaac Bay, or head east towards Dartmoor's wilderness; whichever direction you travel in there is sure to be something new to see.
