Property code: 49804

Ideally situated near to the Cornwall border with Devon, this is a great location from which to explore both counties. Just a short stroll takes you to the South West Coastal Path, providing access to the unique cliff top ‘Hawker's Hut’, and leading to the ever popular seaside town of Bude, and rugged coastal town of Hartland, famed for its abbey and quay. Beach lovers will also be spoilt for choice with an array of golden sandy beaches and unspoilt coves in the area. Other attractions and places of interest accessible from here include Clovelly, Bodmin Moor, the Eden Project, Newquay Zoo, RHS Rosemoor Gardens, and numerous National Trust properties.

From the rear garden, step into the lovely rustic country style kitchen/diner. Here is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed family meal and the kitchen area is equipped with everything that you would need to cook it (and clean up afterwards!) including a traditional oil-fired Rayburn, an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. For those wishing to enjoy pre-dinner drinks or relax with a coffee afterwards, there is a garden room/conservatory attached to the kitchen area. Heading the other way and further into the farmhouse, you’ll discover a spacious hallway with boot and coat racks, and then a choice of lounge. To the left there is a lounge with a Smart TV and wood burner, and to the right a second lounge, with a TV and DVD but this time with a cosy open fire. The property offers 5 bedrooms. Venturing up the stairs and into the main sleeping accommodation, you will find a great selection of bedrooms including a spacious king-size with en-suite shower room and WC, one super-king-size zip-and-link (that can be presented as a twin upon request at time of booking), one twin (that can be presented as a super-king-size upon request at time of booking) and a cosy double bedroom. There is also a bathroom on this floor with a feature roll-top bath, separate shower and WC. Adjoined to the main farmhouse and accessed by a couple of steps up to its own front door is a charming annexe laid out on one level which offers 1 bedroom with a double bed, an en-suite shower room and WC, a cosy lounge/kitchen area with a TV, electric oven and hob and a fridge with ice compartment. The annexe has French doors in the lounge area to enjoy the views across the farmland.

Stepping outside from the conservatory in the main farmhouse there is a private enclosed garden area with patio, sloping lawn, garden furniture, BBQ and hot tub. Further to this you can enjoy access to expansive shared gardens to the front of the property with lawns, stream (please take care with children and pets) and lovely countryside views. There is also ample off-road parking provided.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This is a beautiful farmhouse of great character and soul! The grounds are peaceful and secluded, lovely views all around. We found it relaxing and comfortable, made to feel welcome by gracious hosts. It's a great area to walk and explore, excellent country pubs nearby and the ever ready hot tub is a wonderful, luxurious end to fab days out.

We really enjoyed our stay despite storm Dennis giving us less than ideal weather conditions. The cottage is a lovely old farm house with loads of character. We loved our morning visits from the chickens which the kids loved feeding.

Loved our stay in this cottage, it was ideal for a family celebration with dogs - very comfortable but not so pristine that you had to worry about it. Only downside for me was having to drive or walk on narrow roads to get to good walks.
