Watery Fowls is a modern purpose built holiday bungalow that provides comfortable, good value accommodation for the self-catering holiday maker. Free WiFi now available. It is situated at Rosecraddoc, built in the grounds of the old Rosecraddoc Manor. There is a public house (The Village Inn) that serves the site, but no noisy night clubs, amusement arcades or swimming pools. This is for people and families who are looking for a peaceful holiday in the countryside. The nearby Roscraddoc Woods are great for exploring and private fishing is available at a lake in the grounds - Permits available from The Village Inn. It is however, close enough to major routes, making it easy to visit the fantastic attractions on offer in Cornwall and West Devon, before returning home to 'base' each evening....Watery Fowls is a modern purpose built holiday bungalow that provides comfortable, good value accommodation for the self-catering holiday maker.

Many of our visitors take the opportunity to see some of the many gardens open to the public in Cornwall, including the Eden Project, just 20 miles (32 km) away. Others enjoy the nearby fishing villages and towns on the south coast. Some enjoy a day in Plymouth. There's something for everyone within easy reach.More

Additional amenities & feature info
'Watery Fowls' has three bedrooms, two double and one twin, a spacious lounge, a very well-equipped kitchen/diner, a bathroom with shower and a separate w/c. Immediately next to the bungalow is an allocated space for one car. At the front of the bungalow is a patio with garden furniture, ideal for those 'al-fresco' meals and drinks.
Entry through the main door brings you into the kitchen/diner area. The kitchen is well -equipped with a wide range of cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery making self-catering easy for you. The large dining table comfortably seats six people.
The comfortable lounge benefits from the 'french windows' and summer visitors will be tempted to open these, allowing access to the patio area, ideal for soaking up the sun and enjoying a relaxing drink, or even a barbecue. The lounge has seating for six people including a leather suite and a rocking chair, a television with 'freeview' box and DVD player.
A small hall, complete with coat hooks, separates the lounge from the bathroom and w/c. The bathroom includes a wash-basin and a bath with an overhead electric shower.
All three bedrooms are accessed from the lounge. One of the double rooms and the twin room have windows overlooking the stream just a few metres away, while the other double is at the side of the bungalow. All three rooms have wardrobes, bedside cupboards and lamps and night storage heaters.
This is our 2nd stay here and again perfect very clean and tidy everything you need for a self catering holiday,internet is really good,3 bedrooms all clean.
There is a few cobwebs and spiders about but the property is next to a stream and in...More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Watery Fowls, particularly as your stay was several months ago now. I am pleased that you had a good time with us and that the bungalow was suitable for your holiday.
Shabby without the chic. Tired, worn, and in places downright grim. Damaged/broken items, mould and mildew rife in certain areas (bathroom grouting and shower curtain were bad, but the oven glove in the kitchen has white fur on it), a lamp with no bulb, litter...More

Liskeard is an old Stannery town in south-east Cornwall. Most of our visitors use the supermarkets in Liskeard, although many prefer the local produce available in the Farm shop at St. Cleer, just a couple of minutes drive from Rosecraddoc.
Looe is the nearest coastal town, famous as a fishing port, supplying some of the best fish to the markets in London and even in Europe. Close to Looe is Polperro, famous for its narrow streets leading down to the coast.
Bodmin Moor provides a playground of a different sort and many of our visitors enjoy a short trip to either Sibleyback or Colliford Lakes. Fishing is available at both.
