    Although located just minutes from the main east-west A30 trunk road right on the Devon/Cornwall border, a winding country lane leads you through the estate woodlands to the properties.
    Set around the old farm courtyard, these luxury converted barns are ideal to visit at any time of year. Perfect for family holidays or for those who prefer to visit the West Country during the quieter months. Enjoy peaceful walks through the estate, which is bordered by the rivers Tamar and Lyd or just sit in the garden and experience the peace and quiet of the countryside.
    The estate is located just outside the village of Lifton with its award-winning farm shop and restaurant which is open every day. With freshly made bread, pasties, pies, butchery, freshly picked vegetables, a deli counter full of local cheeses it really is a perfect place to find local fresh ingredients and truly homemade meals. They will even arrange for meals to be delivered to your door!
    Wooladon is an ideal base for visiting both the coastal resorts and the moorland areas. The north Cornish coast, with its dramatic Atlantic rollers and big wide sandy beaches, is perfect for surfers, coasteering and kayaking for the more adventurous! The south coast is more sheltered with sandy beaches, sailing and pretty seaside towns to wander around. If you prefer to stay inland, Dartmoor is less than half an hours drive with miles and miles of rugged moorland to wander, tors to climb, pretty little villages to visit or follow the streams and Drakes Leat which leads to Plymouth.
    The local market towns of Launceston, Tavistock and Okehampton are all within 15 miles. The world-famous Eden Project is less than an hours drive away. Also within easy reach are Port Isaac (where Doc Martin was filmed), Fowey (home of Daphne du Maurier), The Rosamunde Pilcher trail, Tintagel with its Arthurian Legends, Jamaica Inn on Bodmin Moor and so much more. Also, easy to reach are the cathedral city of Exeter, and the historic port of Plymouth with its famous Hoe and Barbican area with the Mayflower Steps. Close by is Roadford Lake with walking, sailing and fishing. Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre with its working fairground rides makes a good day out. Local National Trust properties include Cothele, Lanhydrock and Lydford Gorge.
    Shop, pub and restaurants 1 mile.

    "Highly recommend a stay at the rookery.lovely cottage looking forward to our next stay. Great base to visit Cornwall and Devon."
    Chaniece – 14 Aug 2019
    "Beautiful cottage with lots of space for a big family! Everything was spotless and well thought out and we were even left items such as: washing tablets, dishwasher tablets, conditioner, cling film, soaps and a fresh food hamperwhich was a great little extra! Only improvements I could suggest would be a bigger fridge (a half size one for 7 people wasn't enough), better signage around the estate to know where to walk and a short cut through the estate to their beautiful farm shop!"
    Bea – 3 Aug 2019
    "We had a really great 2 weeks staying at The Rookery - it’s a hidden gem. There was everything we needed and endless woods, walks and lakes to explore with the kids and the dog. Adam was incredibly responsive, helpful and friendly (when we asked for an additional fork he brought it (and more extra cutlery) down to us within about half an hour - by tractor! We would highly recommend this property - it’s a great location for so many Devon and Cornwall attractions and trips to the beach. And the farm shop was fab! The photo on the listing does not do it justice at all."
    AUDREY – 3 Jan 2019
    "If I could score the property 11 or more I would. We had an amazing break and there’s nothing to fault - perfect!!"
    Anna – 5 Dec 2018
