Forgotten houses



Cornwall and Devon are steeped in wonderful history; you can’t turn a corner without a stately home or picturesque cottage popping into view. It’s what makes these counties so unique and often the main attraction for many tourists.


But what if you had a chance to stay in one of these magnificent houses? Forgotten
Houses offers holiday homes with a difference; a chance to experience beautiful surroundings, picturesque views and unique houses steeped in history.


From barns to stately homes and gate houses to farms there are a range of houses to suit people’s needs including size, location and style preference!


For the sublime and decadence there’s Yarner House. A stunning stately home on the edge of Dartmoor available to rent for 15 people and includes stunning views, beautiful grand rooms and a gold bath! You can’t get more unique than that!


For a slice of the stately home experience Head Grooms sits nestled in the stable yard in the grand Cornish estate of Boconnoc. A well know house and grounds steeped in history. Stay here to experience the fishing lakes, deer park sweeping countryside and impressive house.


If you fancy your own grandeur or castle in fact, Tregarden in St Mabyn, Cornwall and Manobier Castle in Pembrokeshire, South Wales, would suffice. Both are stunning historical homes ideal for larger families or friends for special occasions and perfect for immersing yourself in tales gone by.


If it’s a getaway from the modern world you crave then Forgotten Houses can provide. For the hardened country folk who want to get back to nature Leskernick Cottage, nestled deep on Bodmin moor is the perfect place to forget the world. Just don’t forget your walking boots and a 4×4 car as the access can be rugged!


If you’re more suited to a watery retreat Quay House in Flushing and Lorelei on the Helford River both promise stunning sea views, water access and a unique stay in beautiful south coast surrounds for between 6 and 10 people respectively.


For those who are looking for a romantic getaway, or a house more suited to the movies Mellinzeath Farmhouse, Helston ticks both these boxes. A beautiful quaint cottage perfect for winter’s eve in front of its rather impressive fire. And for the more movie lifestyle why not stay at Browns Barn in Wadebridge with its own swimming pool, tennis court and croquet!



And finally for gatehouse retreats on the edge of wonderful estates Bosvathick Lodge offers a countryside retreat on the wonderful estate of Bosvathick with its gardens and house open to the public and the Gamekeepers Lodge on Menabilly Estate perfect for getting away from it all.
