The property is being sold by estate agents Webbers for a price of £229,950. 

The agent commented: “Webbers are delighted to be selling this character home which is full of charm, it really is a hidden gem and located so close to the extensive village facilities at Lewannick, the A30 and open terrain of Bodmin Moor. 

“It would be perfect for those looking for a country retreat where they can escape from busy modern day life!”

The current owner added: “I think it’s amazing to live here at Kelly’s Cottage with all its character, a place steeped in history going back centuries. 

“I especially like sitting on the window seat in the bedroom, sun shining through and look out across the fields…so tranquil and beautiful.”
