Towerhill, Bodmin

Towerhill is a stunning 15th century property that has been added to over the years and is one of the oldest homes in Bodmin. This Grade II listed building has been carefully restored by the owner, whose family bought the property back in the 18th century. A dwelling on the site has even been mentioned in the Domesday Book! It has many original features and family memorabilia displayed in spacious rooms, providing a warm and welcoming environment for guests to enjoy.

What was once the Manorial Courtroom, leading from the downstairs hallway, has now become an elegantly dressed drawing room. With a mix of period and modern furniture, large shuttered windows and a wood stove for winter evenings, these features create a magical feeling of stepping back in time. The ceiling displays the original Tudor Rose motif and the back wall is decorated with a map of Cornwall, the work of cartographer William Mudge (1762-1820) a founding figure of the Ordnance Survey in 1791.

Near the drawing room is what was once the dining area. Again, with much devoted time and thought, it has been tastefully decorated and repurposed into a second lounge. The walls are clad with striking green ‘grasscloth’ paper and framed portraits of clockmaker ancestors, the Bellings. This is a perfect place for pre-dinner drinks or for afternoon tea, using the bone china crockery in the curved, Queen Anne Spice cupboard.

The large kitchen houses a restored wooden farmhouse table, perfect for family and group meals. The kitchen has been updated with modern equipment, including dishwasher and microwave. An oven and hob are available, as well as a working Esse cooker, that keeps the house warm in winter. The nearby larder has extra storage for kitchen items and food.

Leading from the hallway, a large staircase leads to five bedrooms, each with their own unique furnishings and decor. The largest bedroom has a Tudor barrel-vaulted ceiling and wooden Tester bed. Another bedroom has original oak beams and a high, pitched ceiling. Two other bedrooms have newly fitted en-suites and the refurbished main bathroom houses a shower, free standing bath and double sink unit.

Towerhill has a large, well established, secure rear garden with plenty of outside furniture where one can take time to enjoy the sunshine and views from the higher part of the garden. St Petroc’s Church is close by, so expect to hear the bells. For family gatherings and groups with a service at the church, Towerhill is the perfect place nearby, as the property can accommodate up to ten guests comfortably.

The town is also historic as Bodmin was once the County capital and is positioned in central Cornwall, ideal for access to the north and south coast beaches, as well as other great tourist destinations within the County.

Please note, Towerhill is an old property with sloping floors, low doors and high steps to some rooms. This house may not be suitable for those with mobility issues.
