Rylands farmhouse and Rylands holiday cottage date from 1750. Nestling in a rural location half a mile from the picturesque award-winning village of Altarnun, Rylands is the perfect retreat for those seeking peace and tranquillity. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty with Moors to one side and the stunning North Cornwall coast on the other it’s the perfect location to explore Cornwall and Devon. Altarnun has a Post Office with general store and an excellent butchers shop together with a famous church known as the Cathedral on the Moor. Walking less than a mile in either direction brings you one of the two traditional local pubs serving excellent meals, real ale, and cider! Leave your car at the cottage!

Rylands is the ideal base for walking. Explore mystical Bodmin Moor including spectacular Roughtor and Cornwall’s highest peak Brown Willy.

Visit Du Maurier’s infamous Jamaica Inn, see Dozmary Pool where King Arthur’s sword excalibur rose. The spectacular Cornwall Coastal Path is only 10 miles away. Bring your walking boots!

The nearest town is the ancient capital of Cornwall, Launceston. The town dubbed the gateway to Cornwall has old narrow streets a Norman Castle and a Steam Railway. It has the usual facilities plus a leisure centre and excellent 18-hole golf course.

North Cornwall’s rugged coastline equals any in the world. Stunning beaches, surfing, cliff top walks, sunbathing, (it never rains in Cornwall!) and some of the most beautiful fishing villages in the Southwest.
