Situated on the northern fringes of Bodmin Moor, Owls Gate sits on the side of a shallow valley, surrounded on three sides by open farmland with a belt of mature Beech trees providing shelter to the north.

A particularly tranquil and picturesque position, the property enjoys an off the beaten track location yet is only six miles from the majestic North Cornish coast with popular destinations including Tintagel, Boscastle, Trebarwith Strand and Port Isaac, all within easy driving distance.

Directly accessible over a public footpath adjacent to the site is Bodmin Moor, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a haven for walkers and nature lovers alike.

Nestling amidst extensive gardens and grounds, the main residence comprises a spacious five-bedroom timber bungalow that is understood to have been imported from Sweden in the 1950s. The Vendors have currently arranged one wing as charming and quirky studio accommodation.

Approached over a shared unmade lane, there is separate access into the field used for seasonal camping where there are six individual tents arranged into three camps, each with their own separate kitchen building. The field is enclosed within mature and thoughtfully landscaped grounds with Beech hedging.

There is a communal shower/WC building and an undercover barbeque area.

There is ample parking in the car park adjacent to which is a useful large workshop building with shower and further ancillary storage buildings.

Surrounding Owls Gate are fabulous established gardens and grounds of around 1.7 acres which have been thoughtfully planted and landscaped during the Vendors ownership retaining a natural and informal ambience throughout. An outstanding spot to sit and contemplate, the gardens are principally laid to lawn including a vegetable garden, children's play area and several secluded seating areas.

The vendors have operated Belle Tents Camping for many years with further details available at A true lifestyle business which is run on a seasonal basis and was recently granted a Certificate of Lawfulness for Existing Use or Development for eight tents (Planning Reference PA20/10232). The business enjoys excellent repeat custom and details of income can be provided following viewing.
