Property code: PLOUG

Get back to nature in this glorious rural setting that offers sweeping views of the North Cornwall countryside. Set on a working farm a mile from the village of Kilkhampton, this large distinct holiday cottage makes a great space for a family get-together or break with friends. It has six bedrooms that can accommodate 12 people. From your doorstep you can enjoy some lovely walks across the fields and say hello to the resident ponies that roam the paddock. With the owner’s permission, you might even be able to feed them and meet some of the other farm animals too. You’re well placed for exploring the Cornish coastline, including the popular seaside resort of Bude, with its fine beaches and tidal pool that provides safe swimming whatever the conditions out to sea.

Inside, the ground-floor living room is a wonderful space to relax, with its two distinct lounge areas divided by the dining area. The main lounge area is where you can watch TV or listen to music on the hi-fi, while the second lounge area is perfect for relaxing and chatting over a drink. With its American-style fridge/freezer, the bright and airy kitchen has lots of room to store your groceries and fresh produce bought from local markets, ready for whipping up hearty farmhouse breakfasts and evening meals shared as a family. Two staircases, at opposite ends of the house, lead to the six bedrooms. Two of the double rooms have TVs and shower facilities for those who want more privacy. Outside, there is an enclosed courtyard and a private raised decked area where you can host summer BBQs. There’s also a large shared lawn area with children’s play equipment and pergola seating, plus ample parking.

Also nearby is The Milky Way Adventure Park – which the younger members of the family might be itching to visit to sample the adrenalin-packed rides, live shows and play areas.

The whole property was spacious downstairs, but perhaps a rearrangement of the bedrooms would be better for manoverability. Saying that we had great fun and would reccommend anyone to go and stay there. There is plenty to do out and around the property. The owners were onsite to help if any problems and even took the children on a tour of the farm.Read more The furniture was tired and in need of updating, but having said this it is animal friendly.
