We had a really wonderful stay at Waterwheel. Im 7 months pregnant and booked this as a last minute 3 night get away with my husband and our dog. The cottage was just perfect, really clean with everything you need. On arrival were were so grateful for the coffee, milk, biscuits, wine and beer. We ventured to port Issac, Bude, Westward Ho, Clovelly Read more& Hartland quay to watch a beautiful sunset from the hotel, but couldnt wait to get back to the cottage, put on the log burner and relax. Thank you Hide

Wow, What a great cottage. the location is amazing, yes it is on a working farm but it's very quiet and peaceful. The owners are really friendly and helpful. The views from the top of the drive are stunning. We would definitely go back.

The cottage is in a beautiful location and a bit of the beaten track so make sure you have a sturdy vehicle! The cottage is lovely and clean and the perfect size for me, my partner and our 6 month old baby who enjoyed seeing all the new sites. A 25 minute drive to Bude which was lovely and close to other small towns.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
