Cabilla Manor is a spacious Georgian farmhouse and working farm providing B&B accommodation. Home to explorer Robin Hanbury-Tenison and his wife Louella, the manor is full of interesting artefacts from their various travels around the world.
Look out for Louella’s beautiful handmade quilts, painted furniture and an eclectic mix of rugs and furnishings. The manor is full of books, many of which have been written by Robin.
Three beautifully decorated double rooms, all with en-suite facilities or a private bathroom with bath and shower. Two further rooms are available - a twin room and a double room - which can be booked by telephone only. They share a bathroom and are only brought into use for family or group bookings.
On the doorstep and nearby
Bodmin Moor, in the heart of Poldark country, is one of Cornwall’s designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As well as the breathtaking landscape, the remote granite moorland is also home to several attractions such as the fascinating Carnglaze Slate Caverns. The property is just half an hour from both the north and south coast, with the Camel Trail cycle route, the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Helligan all within easy reach. Look out for wonderful spring gardens, National Trust properties, coastal paths and moorland walks.
Further afield lies Jamaica Inn, Cornwall’s legendary coaching house that was built in 1750. Here you can explore the room where author Daphne Du Maurier wrote her famous 1936 novel named after the inn.
