Our Cottage
With its remote location, Leskernick is ‘off grid’. No mains services means a generator supplies the electricity along with a newly installed solar system, which means summer months on the moor are now powered by sunlight.

Originally a one up/one down miner’s cottage built from local granite stone, Leskernick is now a Grade II listed comfortable home, providing a cosy refuge, whilst surrounded by the wilds of the moor. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one ensuite), a well-equipped kitchen, snug sitting room and wonderful dining room which features full height bifold doors, allowing you to ‘moor watch’ whatever the weather.

Whilst there are officially beds to sleep 6, we have chosen to limit the number of guests per stay to a maximum of either 4 adults, or 2 adults with 3 children under 18 years.

Because of its location, with sheep, ponies and cattle grazing the moor year-round, we have to be extremely careful about dogs staying at Leskernick. Therefore, we allow only either 1 large, or 2 small dogs per stay. Leskernick has 7 acres of enclosed land, but you should be aware of your dog’s location at all times. Please note we do not provide, dog beds or towels for drying off your dog so you will need to bring your own. We ask guests not to allow their dogs on the furniture or in the bedrooms, as a consideration for guests who do not own dogs.
