Property code: NPOAK

One of a pair of wonderful holiday properties found on a diverse and fun 50-acre site.

Found in a quiet and attractive part of Kernow with rolling countryside and farmland, a craggy coastline and fast rivers. The property enjoys some panoramic views over fields to the ocean from the first-floor windows. The situation is perfect for exploring Cornwall and North Devon; taking in the many sandy family beaches including Widemouth Bay (ideal for surfing), which is less than 3 miles by car. You will also be close to the many attractions which include the Bude sea lock and canal, Hartland Quay, the Eden Project, Clovelly Village, Dartmoor, Bodmin Moor and much more. The area is well-known for its fantastic walks namely the South West Coast Path. It’s easy to see why so many fall in love with North Cornwall.

Employing the increasingly popular and practical inverted design, this former barn retains much of the original charm, incorporating some features into its layout. On arrival, you will encounter the bedrooms first; one double and one twin. The third bedroom is accessed via an open-tread staircase from the ground floor. This attractive galleried double is curtained off from the staircase. On the first floor is an open-plan social area that includes a lounge, dining area and a kitchen. There is also a bathroom containing a shower over bath with WC. The lounge area centres around a TV/DVD, a hi-fi, and a wood burner to unwind at the end of a day’s touring in front of. Wood is supplied (one basket) between October and April, although logs are also available to purchase on-site. The kitchen area comes equipped with an oven and hob, a fridge freezer, a microwave, and a dishwasher. Laundry facilities are available by arrangement. The property also has a sunroom with seating, giving access to both the patio and the shared gardens.

Step outside the property into the shared garden, where the property has its own picnic table and a handy BBQ too. There is also ample off-road parking. For children, there is a shared outdoor play area, and guests are encouraged to the explore the grounds.

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

The accommodation was absolutely fabulous, very clean and very comfortable. Gill was very accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. Based on the reviews we read prompted us to book. Now we have had the experience, we immediately booked again for next year. Thank you Gill and Jim. Had a fantastic time in Cornwall.

A comfy little cottage in a beautiful location. The host was friendly and helpful. The kids loved the space to play and we enjoyed evening walks through the fields. It is right on the main road so you do get some traffic noise but its not overly invasive and the gate keeps the children safe outside. The cottage is clean and well equipped (the littlRead moree pots of tea/coffee/milk/biscuits were gratefully received on arrival!) There is even a dishwasher! The beds were comfy and rooms clean.

Lovely cottage with good space for the kids to play. Although located on a main road, is nice and quiet at night, and easy to access the local area. Was well equipped and spacious, and a great base for a week seeing various sites around Cornwall.

Not very child friendly,with play park just yards away from a busy fast road. Would be much better if park was near the football goal. Expensive for what it is.
