9 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Venslooe Hill, Liskeard, Cornwall


Just north of Liskeard in 4 acres of gardens, orchard and woodland is this fine Grade II listed six bedroom period home together with a detached three bedroom cottage which is currently run as a successful holiday let.

Located on the northern edge of the historic market town of Liskeard Woodhill Manor is a handsome Grade II listed manor house and a detached three bedroom cottage 'Cider Cottage' which is currently run as a 4* holiday let.

"We were attracted to Woodhill Manor by its tranquil countryside location, whilst being within easy reach of the facilities in Liskeard town. We wanted a property with character and this house captured our hearts straight away with its unique charm. The house itself was built in 1851 on the site of an ancestral home of the Marke family and the cottage, a former cider-making barn, provides complete flexibility as a holiday home, or can be used for long-term rental or as accommodation for the extended family.

Woodhill Manor is well-established as a comfortable family home, with views over the distant hills towards Bodmin Moor. The south-facing mediaeval walled garden is a historical feature that provides a shelter for the plants and complete privacy. The well-stocked orchard and woods are additional, positive features of the property."

Woodhill Manor is situated in the heart of the rolling countryside of south east Cornwall. One mile north of the ancient Stannary and market town of Liskeard. The town boasts a community hospital, indoor swimming pool with a sports and fitness centre, outdoor tennis courts, all weather floodlit football and hockey pitch, football club, cricket club, supermarkets, banks, health centre, dentists, library, public gardens, children's play park, churches, veterinary centre and public houses.
